There's a man at the door. Lana glances at him, as does Lex, and then Lana says she'll see Lex at dinner, and kisses him lightly on the cheek as she exits. It's Dr. Bethany, of bowling-alley fame. "The boy is growing impatient," says the doctor. You see, the boy has seven years on his contract and there's talk of an eighth season. Bethany says that Tobias is asking when they'll schedule his surgery. Lex says Bethany should tell the boy that corneas don't grow on trees. Unless they're spooky eye trees. The trees in the hills have eyes. Bethany says that the boy is blind, not stupid. And Bethany is a physician, not an illusionist! Lex says that he was warned a cornea transplant would take away the boy's abilities. Bethany says that if the boy tells anyone what they're doing, Bethany's career is over. Lex asks him to think about his wife: if they could have attracted these subjects a year ago, she might never have been murdered. When did that happen? Bethany gets his serious face on and tells Lex not to pretend he cares about crime. Crime doesn't pay, so why would Lex care about it? The doctor says that he knows about Lex's meteor rock research. Lex says that he's been victimized by these people just as the doctor has. Lex concludes by instructing Bethany to tell Tobias that he should be patient. Dramatic music soars and then climaxes into a whoosh. Lex walks away. Dramatically. Can you feel the drama?
