Clark tells Lana he wasn't sure if they were talking. Lana says the Kyle thing isn't important, and that one fight isn't worth their friendship. "Yeah, me too," Clark says. He smiles. She smiles. What happened to, "If you want an apology, you're out of luck"? Clark says he thought their friendship was over. "You and me are gonna be friends for a very long time," Lana says. Well, at least until he meets Lois Lane. More smiles. "Did Chloe really kiss you?" Lana asks. Clark looks a little embarrassed. He says nothing.
The Barnness of Fortitude. Lex launches another round of slash fiction by showing up there, where Clark is sitting by the window. Lex tells Clark to tell Bo that because of YCI's death, the contract for the farm can be broken. The telescope is positioned directly between them, horizontally, in a bizarrely phallic way. Clark thanks Lex. "Hey, what are friends for?" Lex asks. Lex says he doesn't remember what happened, and asks if he hurt Clark last night. Not unless it was Clark's first time. You know, taking bullets. Clark taps his chest in a "hey, you can't hurt me, luvah" way. Lex walks to the window and looks out. He says he wonders where Kyle is. Clark says it's weird to think Kyle and Young Chris Isaak were once best friends. They look off at what might, in another place, be a blue Spanish sky. "Think we'll ever end up like that?" Clark asks, turning to Lex. "Trust me, Clark. Our friendship is gonna be the stuff of legend," Lex answers. If it was anyone else on this show delivering that line, a giant cheese anvil would have fallen. Lex and Clark smile. We cut to a shot behind them, panning back, as they look out the window, the naughty telescope between them. Fade to credits.
