Stately Luthor Manor. Mmm, Lex has a new Alienware laptop. Sweet. Clark walks right in to Lex's office. Lex says it's good to see Clark keeping normal hours. Clark says he heard Lex ran into trouble in Metropolis. "News travels fast," says Lex. "Curse of a small town," Clark counters, smiling. Clark asks what happened. Lex says, "I decided to play cowboy and got my spurs handed to me." Yee-haw! They don't even talk like this here in Texas. Lex, who has a gash and bruise near his left eye, says he's surprised he's not dead. Clark says that someone must be watching over Lex. "In more ways than one," Lex says. Huh? Clark notices the manuscript page sitting back in its safe spot inside the glass case. Clark asks how Lex got it back. "I didn't," says Lex. He tells Clark that the page was sitting back on his desk when he returned home from the hospital. Lex says that whoever took it must have had a change of heart. "I guess he did," Clark says with a degree of stupidity that is surprising, even for Clark. Lex says they'll have time to study it later. Lex says he has a headache. Clark lies that he's just glad Lex is feeling better. He uses X-ray vision to take a look at the map before leaving. As Clark is walking out, Lex stops him to say that he had a team of experts examine the page: "Do you know what they discovered?" Clark waits in suspense. "That I paid too much for it," Lex says, breaking the tension. Clark lets out a breath. Lex thanks Clark for checking in. Clark leaves. Lex pushes a key on his laptop and the images on his computer of the page changes to an image of the map hiding within it. Lex smiles.
