Smallville Medical Center. Wow, there are quite a lot of extras at the front entrance. Inside, Lana -- wearing a pink muscle shirt and red shorts -- is walking slowly on two physical-therapy rails as a therapist guides her along. Lana struggles and winces to take another step. Somewhere, an evil horse is laughing. The therapist tells Lana that's enough for today. She echoes that to Adam, a guy doing leg lifts on a weight set. "I know my limits," Adam says. The therapist -- who looks like she could be related to Sheriff Cheshire -- tells Adam he'll overdo it. He says that if he listened to people like her, he'd still be in bed. Scary Therapist tells Lana she did good work, and calls her "sweetie." Adam -- a grinning doofus in the Wes Bentley mold -- tells Lana, "Hurts, doesn't it?" Lana, on crutches now, agrees. Poor Man's Wes Bentley strides right in Lana's way and says she's getting off way too easy. "Excuse me?" Lana says. PM'sWB says that Lana has to work through the pain. He lays down some crap about how this country never would have been built if people had just given up. Because all of the Founding Fathers were stomped by horses before they wrote the Declaration of Independence. They were originally going to call it The Declaration of Ow My Fucking Back! Lana echoes my sentiment. Or maybe I echo her. I've kind of given up trying to figure out what I think of Lana. It's like a boil you forget is there until it flares up. PM'sWB asks if Lana broke her leg at cheerleading practice. Dirty look from Lana. PM'sWB seriously asks what happened. Lana says that a horse got spooked, and she ended up under its hooves. Oh, glorious day. PM'sWB introduces himself and goes back into Asshole Mode, saying they both know Lana has one more lap on the walker in her. "How 'bout not?" Lana asks. That was a sentence? The dude bullshits about the word "struggle" and how it's a credo here. He's Lord of Physical Therapy? Lana says she hasn't walked in a month. PM'sWB says that attitude won't get her up a flight of stairs. Lana asks if he's always this obnoxious. I'm guessing yes. PM'sWB (he also looks a little like Jimmy Fallon if Fallon were a little younger and sleeker) says he bets Lana has a boyfriend who always protects her. He urges Lana to fight her own fight. Then he exits, leaving Lana intrigued and with a bit of the burning thigh sweats, I'm guessing.
