In the hall, Clark thanks Lex for taking Ryan in. Clark says that if he'd taken the kid home, his parents would have freaked. Oh, come now. They would have been happy to see the kid and more concerned that he was being tortured than whether Clark broke any laws. It's not like the Kents haven't skirted the criminal justice system before. This plot point reeks. Lex asks Clark why he busted the kid out if he was only being kept for observation. Clark, walking down the hall pensively, says that Luka was being treated like a lab rat. A lab rat under "observation." Lex says that Clark abducted a minor and that they're both in serious trouble. This whole conversation reminds me of Jeffrey Jones and makes me very, very sad. Clark says he shouldn't have involved Lex. He gives Lex an up-and-down look and says he'll find another place to play El Fugitivo. Lex grabs Clark by the arm and pulls him back. He says that Luka can stay for the night and he'll talk to his lawyers and see what their options are. (Option #1: LOVE!) Clark says he wasn't thinking when he took Luka. "So you staged a one-man prison break?" Lex asks. Let's avoid the mental image of one of these two men in prison. Lex asks how Clark got the kid out without being stopped. "Just lucky, I guess," Clark says, looking all angelic. Lex says Clark is the luckiest guy he's ever met. Long, lingering look. Lex says he hopes that luck doesn't run out before tomorrow. Oh, no, Lex. This luck is gonna last all. Night. Long.
