Backstage. The two contestants talk. The girl with the giant hoop earrings asks what else was she supposed to do when the other girl wanted out of the group. Let her go, maybe? She thinks they should just hit the time capsule and go home. Isn't the whole point of the time capsule that it has a map to some treasure? The other girl says they need to do this pageant, because it's the perfect distraction. She wants to stick to the plan. Jimmy takes another photo of them. They get so annoyed that Stick To The Plan tells Murderess to "Do your thing."
Outside, Jimmy is getting into his car. He's calling Chloe, who was supposed to meet him. They didn't drive together? What's up with that? Jimmy says he's got a major lead. Just then, the vents of his air conditioning fill up with frost. The whole car gets very cold. Instead of getting out of the car, Jimmy tries to adjust the air. Everything gets icy around him. Jimmy himself becomes a Jimmy Pop. The door handle breaks off as he tries to escape. It's cold! Jimmy huffs and puffs. In the rearview, he can see the evil contestant. She had her hand on the trunk of the car. Then she takes off. Jimmy, cold as ice, tries to reach the other door handle. And then, it's Kara to the rescue. She rips off the car door. Evil Weather Girl watches Kara. She's like, "Oh, SNAP!"

Kent Farm. Lex enters through the back door. As is his wont. He finds Lana sitting at the dining room table. Lex says he got her message. He says it would have been a little awkward if she'd come to the mansion. It's less awkward to have to meet her at her ex-boyfriend's house? God, Lex, grow a fucking pair already. Lex tries to take a chair, and Lana snaps, "Don't sit down. You won't be staying long." She invited him over. Let's just remember that. Lex says this isn't a conversation he's been looking forward to having. He says he wasn't ready. Lana reminds him that he promised to take care of everything and that she could come back to Smallville. Lex says that the D.A. has, with some persuasion, agreed to drop the charges against Lana and that the evidence has been destroyed. He says the felon who was bribed by Papa Luthor to confess to the crime died of natural causes. Wait. What crime? Lana's still alive. There was no murder. Lex says she's a free woman.
