The Barnness of Beatingadeadhorseitude. A comet flies across the sky, and somehow we've gone from a full moon to a sliver in the same night. Clark is still dragging Lana by the arm up the stairs to the loft. She complains that Clark humiliated her in front of her friends. Did he drive her to the barn? With his truck? That he drove from Metropolis? With Lois? Clark says that Lana didn't know any of those people at the party. Lana, standing near the window, asks what Clark wants from her. He yells that it's what he's always wanted: for her to be happy. Nice one, Clark. Lana says that she'd love that, but that every time she gets close, Clark rips it away from her. Clark tells Lana that she'd never be satisfied with Lex: "You can't marry him." Lana insists that she's already made up her mind. "Even though you're still in love with me?" Clark asks. Are we really still on this shit? Did I wake up back in Season 3? Good lordy, people. If we're tired of this, imagine how these actors must feel. They've probably already bought their plane tickets and rented moving vans for the day Season 7 wraps. Lana turns and heavily says, "What makes you so sure?" Clark says it's because he's still in love with her. He leans in to kiss Lana. She takes a surprised breath as Clark forces a kiss on her. Just as quickly, she gives in and kisses back. She puts her hands on Clark's shoulders, and we get a tight shot of her engagement ring. They kiss long enough for us to go to a wider shot; Lana is shaky as the kiss breaks. "Don't marry Lex. Marry me," says Clark. Lana gets mad and pushes Clark away. She cries as she says she's given Clark every chance: "I've stood in this spot so many times!" Girl, we know. Damn, do we know. Lana sniffs, tears in her eyes. "You don't love me, Clark. You just can't stand the idea that I love someone else."
