Chloe's house. Lana is folding some clothes. Chloe asks how she's doing. She's a little freaked. Chloe says only she could fall for someone who splits himself in two. Chloe asks if she has a sign around her neck that says "Mutant magnet." "He fooled me too, Chloe," Lana says. "So much for our taste in guys," she says. Time to switch to...? If Birds of Prey goes off the air, this show will have to take up the lesbian-subtext torch. Lana says it only went so far because they weren't honest with each other. Lana is gonna do laundry and cook dinner. Chloe says that Lana's not a glorified guest, and doesn't have to. Lana says she has abandonment issues. Chloe says she went through that when her mom left. Chloe tells Lana she doesn't have to earn the right to be a part of the family. She just needs to share the bed. Smiles all around. Chloe gives house rules for slovenly living. Lana giggles. She has a much better time with Chloe than she does with Clark.
Clark is at the Talon. Pulsing music is playing. Chloe and Lana are at the bar wearing the same clothes they were in the last scene. Clark says he got their message. Chloe says they were up all night. Uh huh. Clark, Lana says, was the #1 topic of discussion. What time is it? Chloe apologizes for the way they've treated Clark, even though he used them as bait. Lana says that Clark warned them and they didn't listen. "You thought I was jealous," Clark says. Chloe says there's a lot of water under the bridge. Clark says he has issues with them, but that he'd never let anyone hurt them. "We know," Lana says. Clark says he finds it interesting that Tool Boy gets all the latitude in the world, but he just gets immediately dismissed. That's because you're in "The Friend Zone," Clark. Seriously. Get used to it. Chloe points out that Clark has been less than honest with them in the past. "You want honesty?" Clark asks. He says the truth is that he expected more from both of them. Lana counters: "We expected more from you." Ooh, good comeback. Lana says they made a mistake, but it was theirs to make. Everybody hurts. Chloe asks what they do now. Clark doesn't want to be treated like the jealous boyfriend. He points out that none of them have actually dated. (What about Spring Formal?) "You want to be friends, let's be friends," he says, throwing down the wuss gauntlet. Lana asks if that's what he really wants. "Yeah. It is," he says. Lana nods. Chloe just stares. "Good night," he says. He's here till Tuesday! Don't forget to tip your waitresses! Clark walks out into the night. He stands for a second looking oddly pleased. Camera pans up into the Talon marquee as Clark walks down the sidewalk and the sad music plays. Hey, the song was from A-Ha! A-Ha! I like it. That boy still has that falsetto going on.
