The Caves of Contrivance. Chloe, flashlight in hand, is looking around. She finds the giant stone Texas Hold 'Em Table of Interstellar Convergence. It accepts debit and credit! Chloe gives it a long look, and then says to herself, "All right, Clark. As long as you're happy with who you are." She turns to walk away and there's Lex, bam! Is that going to happen every time Lex shows up now? He just magically appears behind someone? I still say these caves are remarkably well lit considering that there are no other light sources. Lex says that happiness is an elusive creature. It's a homosexual penguin at the zoo, really. He says that so few us of ever really have it. Chloe snaps back that it doesn't make the journey any less important. "Or the destination," Lex counters. Wait. What? Lex hands Chloe the flashlight she just dropped. He asks if Chloe remembers the last time they were there together. Chloe says she doesn't remember what happened. Lex asks why she's been avoiding him. Allergy? Static electricity? Faint natural-gas smell? Chloe says she's been busy. Is Chloe working anywhere these days? Shouldn't she be starting college? Lex snarks that being a third wheel can be very time-consuming. Ouch. That one hurt. A bit bitterly, Chloe says that Clark and Lana are happy and that's all that should matter to a real friend. Lex struggles with that one and says he thinks Chloe knows more than she says. He tells her she's playing a very dangerous game. Either the light is bad here or Chloe looks very tired all of a sudden. Chloe says that's like hiding the spaceship Lana saw. Lex says that Lana was hysterical at the time, and didn't see what she thought she saw. "Well maybe you didn't either, Lex," she tells him. Chloe tells him to start asking questions or she'll start asking her own. Lex is left to play by himself at the giant stone table.
