Kent kitchen. Clark walks in. He doesn't see Lana at her homework, in front of the fireplace. Clark calls for Lana. MamaKent hasn't seen her. Hey, she looks pregnant! Clark finds the drawing CCLG did. It's her and Lana, holding hands near a bridge.
The real bridge. Nobody's bothered to fix a railing and it looks wet, leafy, and dangerous. CCLG is dancing and singing. Lana is worried and tells her to stop. Lana tells the girl that they've been out there before. The girl asks if that's why her dad is mad at Lana. Lana reaches out and tries to explain. She says it was raining. Lana fell in and the original Emily went in after her. The girl swam beside Lana, telling her she could make it. When Lana looked back (she's near tears telling the story), the girl was too far away and the current was taking her. CCLG is mad that Lana didn't save her. Lana is blubbering. "I thought you were my best friend!" CCLG yells. Lana cries that if she could go back, she'd change that day. Lana says it should have been her. (No comment, although I'm thinking lots of different thoughts at this point.) Lana reaches out to the girl. She zips around Lana. "This time it will be," the girl says. She drops the bunny and pushes Lana into the river. Yay! Er...I mean, "oh no!" Lana screams and plunges in. In a matter of, like, five seconds, Lana's already unconscious. Clark zips past the little girl and dives in. He finds Lana, down at the bottom, not floating at all. (See? She's not even the kind of dead wood that can float.) Clark puts Lana on a rock. He performs CPR. Notice, he has to move her upper lip to give her mouth-to-mouth. Lana spits up water and wakes up. She coughs and sputters. "Clark. Hold me," she says. Oh. Gawd. He holds her. We get a wide shot of the bridge. Clark and Lana are wet and in love. We go to commercials.
The WB presents Reba. For those who don't understand the concept of "Friday night."
Lair of Lex. Papa Luthor shows up, asking why Lex is leaving him urgent phone messages after trying to shun him recently. Lex -- who is still wearing that weird purple/pink shirt, and hitting the decanter -- asks, "How does it feel to play God, dad?" Papa Luthor scoffs. In a God-like way. Papa Luthor says he left a brunch with the governor. Lex says he knows Papa Luthor reopened Level 3. (From way back in "Jitters.") "Ah-oh. The ominous Level 3," Papa Luthor says mockingly. Lex accuses Papa Luthor of turning Level 3 into smaller, undetectable labs. Papa Luthor protests, but Lex gets right to it. He accuses Papa of genetically engineering human beings. Papa Luthor totally accuses Lex of being a paranoid loony with a penchant for science fiction. Lex says he saw Creepy Little Crazy Girl with his own eyes. Papa Luthor says that if Lex had been paying attention to business instead of this crap, he would have noticed that Papa Luthor got control of the caves from the state today. "That's impossible," Lex says, clearly shaken and not stirred. He says he was under contract for five years. Papa Luthor says that the governor heard about some accidents and even deaths that occurred under Lex's watch. Lex is totally beaten here. Papa Luthor sort of apologizes. He says he always tried to teach Lex to keep a sharp eye on the ball. It's not just one ball Papa Luthor should be worried about with Lex and the watching. Lex: pissed.
