When Lois wakes up, she finds herself lying on the sofa in front of a roaring fire. Her ill-gotten coat is gone, but thankfully Conner left the rest of her clothes alone. There are dozens of lit candles. Lois sits up and sees Conner gazing at himself in a mirror fragment. She also sees the ring on his finger. "I'm sorry that I lost my temper," he says when he notices her looking at him with fear. He sits beside her and strokes her hair. "I promise we'll live here happily ever after." You say that now, but the lack of indoor plumbing is going to wear on you. He cups her face in his hands and makes creepy noises about their destiny. She smiles and blinks away tears. "We should toast our future together," she says. She asks him to get them some champagne. He gets up and walks a few steps away before realizing something isn't right. "There's a reason Lois Lane is known for telling the truth," he says. He zips back over to her and grabs her from behind. "Because you're a terrible liar." She tries to reason with him, tells him it's the ring. He says he feels great and gives Clark the credit. He shoves her up against a wall. "You're nothing like Clark," she says. "I've seen him on red kryptonite, and it may bring out his inner angst a little, but it doesn't turn him into this." She doesn't remember the time that he, too, kidnapped another man's fiancee. Lois says it's the Lex part of Conner that's making him act this way, because the show just can't decide what side of the nature/nurture fence it's on. Conner throws her through some boards then grabs her, caveman-style, by the hair. "I'll open up a world Clark Kent can't even imagine for you," he whispers in her ear. This is just so, so gross. He rolls her onto her back and straddlers her hips. Ugh. When Lois mentions Clark, Conner starts to choke her. If he can't have her, he says, then neither can Clark.
