Hallway. Lana is talking Clark's ear off. She's still asking, over and over, what she could have done when she blacked out. All right, Lana. It's over. Let it go! Live in the now! Clark asks if Lana remembers what she said to him at The Talon earlier. Nope. Sorry, Clarkie. She asks what she said. "You just, uh, asked me to the prom," he says. Awkward! "Oh," Lana says, taken aback. "Really?" Clark explains that it wasn't really her, and that's cool and, you know, go home, watch some movies, masturbate in the shower...it's cool, really. There's suddenly a Code Blue. A sale at K-Mart? Doctors and nurses rush. Wow, it's just like the Code Blue from last week. This it the place where all character-killing plot points must go. As the Scooby trio walks down the hall, they're stopped by the nurse from earlier. She asks if they're friends of PMP. She tells them that, even though doctors just now rushed over, their friend has "passed on." Passed on what? The nurse says she's sure PMP didn't suffer. She leaves them, but gives a sly look over her shoulder as she walks off. As she leaves, the nurse stops to throw away a needle she just used. "Genius!" she says, congratulating herself. "Laters!" "Genius!" It's all just so clever, isn't it? So is PMP really dead, or what?
I've gotta tell you guys: I'm winded. This episode is tiring the crap out of me. You know the scene in The Triplets of Belleville where the guys with the gigantratonic calves are on the bikes that are moving the reels on the projector and running them through an endless Tour de France from Hell that never ends? That, in a nutshell, is recapping "Spirit." Just thought I'd share.
Lair of Lex. Hands tap at Lex's keyboard. The LuthorCorp page login prompt says "Lex Luthor." Pssst! I think the password is "ELEMENTS." The screen says "Log-in successful." A bunch of emails appear. Among them are emails from B. Crosby (Bing Crosby!?), Dr. Sinclair, a financial dude named Jim Pratt, another lackey named L. Jacobsen, a security guy named T. Hunt, a third financial person named L. Naude (just Naude if you get this), Theron Layne the marketing guy (it's right Theron your email list) and a dude named Clark Kent who responds to a message called, "Hi Clark - Favor to ask." That favor is...Hot gay inches! Subscribe now! We see that the person looking at Lex's email is Jason! And he's doing it in Lex's office. Surely there's a way to sneak into someone's email without having to do it from their own computer in plain view! Subtlety, man!
