Lana's increasingly overcluttered apartment. She's wearing a brown off-the-shoulder toga borrowed from a former Solid Gold dancer. She and Jason are arguing. She can't believe he'd take a job with Lex. Lana thinks the Countess thing is a ruse. Is that one of your fancy Paris words, Lana? Well, try this one: "Sacré blue-a!" Jason bullshits that he can turn the tables on Lex by using him while he himself is being used. Brilliant! Lana says that this is just "more secrets and more lies." Oh, man. That's funny right there. Maybe it hasn't worked its way into the recaps often enough, but a long-time recurring joke about Lana in the forums is her constant whining about "thecrets and lieth!" I can't believe they actually had her use those exact words. Hi-larious. Lana says they're all going to blow up in their faces. Or maybe crush them like a meteor. Jason says that he can't rely on honesty in dealing with Lex and his mother. Lana adds whine to go with her cheese plate by saying that she's done lying and won't go along with this. Jason says that their research on the Countess is going nowhere; this might be their way of breaking through. Dudes! Just let it go! Be happy! Drink! Engage in teen sex! Screw this Countess shit that's breaking you up, don't you think? No? You're gonna keep on pursuing this crap that none of us care about? Really? You think that's wise? Oh you do? Well, all right then. I see you've made your decision, Smallville. Nice Season 4 you've got going here. Jason says he's not going to let Lex and his mom break up their relationship. "Trust me," he adds. Lana asks how she can trust someone who's willing to lie for a living. Jason has no answer for that. Lana almost swallows her upper lip. She says that if Lex knows something, there's only one way to find out.
