Lex calls Lana's name from downstairs. Clark's superhearing didn't pick up on Lex's car driving up? Lex, downstairs, calls again. Lana answers and rushes down the stairs to meet him. They hug. Clark, up in the loft, says that Lana should tell Lex that she wants to be with him. "Don't listen to him. He's on something," Lana tells Lex. Does she really believe that it's just drugs? Clark says that it didn't seem to bother her when she was kissing him two minutes ago. Lex takes a moment with that, and then steps forward. He asks what Clark thinks will happen now. "Exactly what you're afraid of," Clark answers. Lana says that she's not a competition. Because what would be the prize? More Lana? Yeesh. Clark comes down the stairs, all cocky. He says that Lex has always wanted everything Clark has, and Lana was at the top of that list. Clark says that Lex just wants a trophy, and that Lex is just a consolation prize for Lana. Which discounts that the two of them might be a lot happier if Clark wasn't around, but whatever. "Now, tell me you don't love me," Clark says, but he says it looking right at Lex, creating a very unexpected Gayest Look of the Episode! Way to pull one out of the fire, Clark! Lana doesn't answer. Lex looks unsure. Clark steps forward, repeating the question. Lex busts out a gun, pointed at Clark. He tells Clark to stay way from her. "You don't want to do that," Clark says. "You can't win. You don't even know the rules of the game." Clark pushes the gun away, pushes Lex through a set of breakaway boards, and pins Lex to a wall. Lana tries to pull Clark off as Clark chokes Lex. He's Chokey McGee! Clark says that if he had known who Lex would turn out to be, he'd never have saved him on that bridge. "Clark, you're killing him!" Lana yells. She keeps trying to pull at Clark. He gives her a dirty look. While Clark is distracted, Lex digs in a nearby toolbox and pulls out a huge screwdriver, stabbing Clark with it. Clark suddenly grunts and falls. The screwdriver falls to the floor. Standing behind Clark is MamaKent, one hand behind her back. She stays in place, telling Lana to let MamaKent handle this. She asks Lex and Lana to leave. Lana looks to the floor and sees the screwdriver. Its tip is all bent and mangled. She leads Lex away. Clark gasps and looks up at MamaKent. She's holding a glowing green rock in a lead box, but closes the lid as she bends down and holds Clark's head. He's sweaty and shaken. She asks if he's all right. Clark just breathes quickly, gasping for air. Dramatic flourish on the soundtrack.
