Flash to the drink being spiked, Ethan taking the tequila bottle, the truck, Ethan planting evidence, Ethan firing the weapon. It's all coming together now. Flash to Ethan shooting Papa Luthor. Falling off the balcony. Back and to the left.
Clark says that Ethan faked the blood-alcohol test, and then came after Clark when Clark started catching on. Ethan says it's not just about him. He says that the Luthors are like a cancer, destroying everything they touch. Clark says that the Luthors didn't kill anyone, and they didn't frame his dad. Ethan starts to blubber and cry. "What have I done?" he asked. I am sickened watching it.
Kent Farm. Clark is up in the Barnness of Soon-to-be-Gayitude reading what looks like a yearbook. Lex comes up. Oh my. He says he wanted to see if Clark's dad is doing okay. Clark says that Bo says he's all right. Lex says it doesn't sound like Clark's convinced. Clark says he found the yearbook for his dad's senior class. Bo and Ethan were buddies. "To Jonathan: A great quarterback, a better friend. Ethan." Clark says you grow up with someone and you think you know them: "Darkness like that just doesn't come out of nowhere." Nope, it takes about four seasons. Long look from Lex. "Sorry about your company," Clark says after a pause. He asks what'll happen next. Lex says his dad thinks Lex will come back and work for him. Clark asks if he will. Lex says it's hard to imagine working for someone who could give four people motivation to kill him. Word. "Even you," Clark says. Several small almost-Gayest looks. Lex says that the darkness Clark was talking about is something he doesn't think people are born with. He says people like Papa Luthor find a way to bring it out. "So, we okay?" Lex asks. Oh hell yeah. Clark says he wishes he could help with Papa Luthor. Lex says he can take him. He stares at Clark with barn-burning amour. It's The Gayest Look of the Episode.
Hospital. Lex is visiting Papa Luthor. Papa's in a neck brace. "Dad?" Lex says. Papa Luthor's voice is raspy. He says that Lex has had a busy few days. Lex tells him that Ethan has been charged with murder and attempted murder. With a small smile, Papa says, "It truly is a sad day in Smallville." Lex says the truth will come out eventually, but that he'd like to hear it from Papa Luthor first. Papa Luthor clears his throat and says they just had a misunderstanding.
