Lana comes over to Clark and Chloe's table. Clark plays it off, asking how she's doing. Lana says things aren't great, but she thanks them for the "courtesy clueless." Heh. That just reminded me that Alicia Silverstone has no career to speak of. Chloe asks whether donating a pint of blood each would cheer Lana up. If she's Kreukferatu, maybe. Lana cheerfully takes their names down on a clipboard (in this town, all you need is a clipboard to get blood out of people). Lana asks Clark about donating blood, and he suddenly looks alarmed. "I'm...not...sure," he manages, looking to Chloe for help. Chloe looks back, but doesn't have a clue what he's on about. "Can I get back to you?" he asks. Lana, more seriously, says that's fine. In her head, she's building a Clark/Jocko comparison chart. Clark offers to help out behind the scenes. You know, carry blood packets, poke people with needles, that sort of thing. Chloe gives him the old "Oh, I know where this is going" look. Lana says thanks and leaves, finally. Let the people drink their damn coffee already. Chloe compliments Clark on his "nice recovery," but asks if his helping has some ulterior motive. Hasn't his entire relationship with Lana been about being sweet for ulterior motives? Chloe seems Chloueless this week. Clark says he's just being a good friend. He takes a sip of coffee from a white cup. Chloe takes a sip from a huge, light-kryptonite-colored vase of a cup. This is the saddest coffee shop ever. They can't even afford matching beverage containers.
The castle of Lexitude. We start with a shot of a fish tank and...OH MY GOD! One of the fish is talking! She's telling her daddy that things are on schedule! Oh. Damn. Boobs McChesty walks into the shot holding a phone. I would have much rather listened to what the fish had to say. In her weird, high, pseudo-posh monotone, she says Lex is playing hard to get, but that she's sure he'll come around. Playing hard to get? Didn't he just bed her in the last episode in between trying to catch glimpses of Clark on his security cameras? Lex, for his part, is in the background, shooting pool on his red table. You know what Lex really needs? A crushed velvet robe. Boobs says goodbye to her daddy and relays a message. Daddy McChesty wants to know whether Lex plans to sell the castle after they sell out his father. Boobs sits on the edge of the pool table. I've just noticed something. For this entire scene, it looks like the camera is intentionally not showing her face. They're not ashamed of her, are they? Oh, heaven forbid! Lex asks whether Daddy wants to ship the castle back to Scotland. He comes over and kisses Boobs (on the mouth), and he is completely blocking her in the shot with his head. Oh, man, it is intentional! How fun! Cut to the back of her head as they kiss. They should put her behind a fence like the neighbor from Home Improvement.
