We cut to the came story being viewed by Lana at the castle. She stares at it, sadly. Lex comes into the room. "Million dollars for your thoughts," he says. He apologizes, saying that his comic timing is the first to go, after his nerves. Lex says that, in all his life, he's never made an offer being afraid of the answer. Till now. Lana says that Lex has been so patient. Lex says it doesn't feel like it. Lana says she went to see Clark. Lex looks surprised. I guess he called off his spies. "And?" he asks. "And I love him," says Lana. Dagger! Through Lex's heart. "I love both of you. And maybe I always will," Lana adds. Ugh. This scene. Painful. Lex is disappointed. He gulps. Lana says that she couldn't say yes to Lex knowing she might look back with regrets. She says that Lex deserves better than that. Lex says that, with the life he's led, he goes to bed every night praying he doesn't get what he deserves. He says you get bitter and vengeful, then you meet someone who's so good (oh, yak) she might be the one person who can learn to love you; he'd wait forever for that. Lana shakes her head: "You don't have to. I'm done looking back." She says she has someone right in front of her whom she knows trusts her. He lets her see sides of him nobody else does. Lex asks for clarification. "Yes, Lex Luthor," says Lana, tearful and smiling, "I will marry you." They hug. No kiss. Wonderment music plays. We go to blackout.
Next week: the Justice League! This one's supposed to be great, so don't miss it.
