Commercials. Update from Subway's Jared: "I'm still not fat. Annoying, yes. Fat, no."
Since the episode title inevitably has to be referenced in the events of the episode, Lex is once again bound. But not by ropes; he's duct-taped to a chair in his own office with a piece of it across his mouth. No-Longer-Mysterious-Red is pointing a gun at Lex as he wakes up. She asks if he's going to be quiet. Lex nods. She pulls the tape off. Lex breathes heavily. Lex asks how she got past his security. She told them he'd been drinking in Metropolis and needed help getting home; they even helped carry him to his office. Lex asks why she brought him there. "Because this is where it all happened," she says. "This is where I earned my earrings." Haaawwwwt! The first time, at least, she says. She tells Lex that he remembers the recent night, but not the first time they did the lair-libido-lunge. She reveals that she had a fiancé she cheated on with Lex because she thought Lex loved her. Hmm, that sounds a lot like a bad move on her part, no? When she broke up with her fiancé, she called to tell Lex, and he wouldn't take her call. "I'm sorry," Lex tries. "If I had known..." Three months later, she bumped into Lex outside of LawyerLady's, and he didn't recognize her. Ooo, anonymous burn. She puts a hand on his shoulder and circles behind him. She leans in close behind Lex as she says she started going through Lex's files, and found out she wasn't the only one. "Eve Andrews," Lex says, referring to the dead woman. "Among others," Engraged Red finishes. "She was such a fan," she says. The woman agreed to come to the hotel when Red told her Lex wanted to see her. Then she slipped a little something into Lex's drink after they "made love." Lex winces. "You rigged the test," Lex says. She switched the results. Now a Kennedy is totally gonna go free. Lex says she was the one who sent him to her house. "You were supposed to get caught," she says, "but you didn't. So here we are." Lex struggles in his chair. Damn this very strong consumer-brand tape!
Lana's Talon-based apartment, at night. The fireplace is going as Jason asks a sullen Lana why she's put on a pout. "Talk to me," he insists. Can we skip it and pretend she did? Lana looks away as she says, "I met your mom." Jason asks her where. At The Talon. Lana conveys the Smallville Inn message. Jason asks why Lana didn't tell him earlier. "I don't know," she says sadly. She says, unfairly, that she doesn't want to be the one passing notes between Jason and his mother. With that, she gets up in a huff. The hell? How is this Jason's fault? Dude, I'm serious this time. Fucking RUN! Jason says he wouldn't ask Lana to do that, and that his mom had no right to come there. He apologizes for something he didn't do. Lana turns around again emotionally and says that Jason's mom seemed worried. Jason says his mom might have seemed sad and heartbroken, but "she's not." He says she's manipulative and has always tried to control him. You mean like...a mom? Well, some moms. My mom rules. You better not talk shit about her. Or she will force me to do something unpleasant to you. No, Mother, no! We were just talking! Please don't...! Yes, Mother. Whatever you say, Mother. You know I love you, Mother. I'll take care of this...unpleasant person. Mother! Lana whispers that she dreamed about Jason's mom. Lesbian MILF? Lana clues Jason in on her witchy dream, and how Jason's mom was suddenly there. But here's the shitkicker: "I dreamed about her before I met her," Lana says. It's not quite The Twilight Zone, is it? Hasn't that happened to all of us before at some point? You dream something, then it happens? I think they call that déjà-vu. In France, even.
