Quick cut to Metropolis International Airport, shot in the same gray/blue of the Metropolis City Lens Filter. A couple is kissing by the sidewalk as Lana schleps her own bags to the airport entrance. She looks raggedy, by Lana standards. Not even a pink scarf. Just a black stretchy top and a striped white jacket over that. Lana is stopped by Lex, who's full-on stylin', wearing a dark suit and tie. Lex says he wanted to say "bon voyage." Lana asks if he shouldn't be at the courthouse. "My father can wait," Lex says. Uh oh. This doesn't bode well for the future. So Lex is willing to risk everything against his dad for Lana? The world really has gone Bizarro. Lex says he couldn't let the last person Lana saw in town be the shuttle driver looking for his tip. What about Chloe and her dad? Lana isn't living with them anymore? Lana thanks Lex for everything. Lex says it's clear that Lana's destiny lies beyond the Smallville city limits. Far, far, beyond, where there are no TV cameras. Please let it be. Lex says he's just trying to help her get there. Lana doesn't know what she did to deserve such a good friend. Her hair is wild. Wild On...Lana's hair! Lana is glad Lex came into her life. Lex says suavely that maybe he'll run into her on the Champs Elysées. Oh, dear god, please don't let us see that if it happens. Lana asks if Lex is going to be in Paris. Lex says he hasn't been in a few years, but now he has a reason to go. Noooooo! But, then again, given how much of an asshat Clark has been this season, I'm beyond caring. Maybe Lex will fall in love with and kill Lana in the end. We can hope on the latter part, right? Lex and Lana hug. A lot, as singer-songwriter pap plays. Clark, in his decidedly-not-styling red jacket, watches from across the street. Jeeeeeaaalous? Clark, holding a white, long-stemmed rose, drops the flower in slow motion. Lex says goodbye to Lana, making her carry her own bags to the check-in. Lana looks across the street and sees Clark as cars and buses whiz by. She crosses traffic with all her stuff. Clark has disappeared. Lana looks around and sees the rose on the ground. She picks it up. The scene finally ends. Bye, Lana. Don't come back.
