The mental hospital where Chloe's mother was staying. Clark is in the waiting room. Chloe shows up. She asks how Lana is doing. Clark looks grim. Chloe is sorry. Clark says he has to find Braniac. He asks Chloe if she has any leads. She doesn't. She says he and Kara both vanished. A door opens. An orderly says Clark can see Lana now. Where's Aunt Nell? Chloe says she'll wait for Clark. A very sad song begins to play as Clark walks down a long hallway. He sees Lana sitting by herself at the end of it. "Lana?" he says. She's staring outside a window. A stone angel is next to her in case you need it hammered into your brain that Lana is a perfect angel in a state of grace. Clark kneels in front of her. She stares off with her strange eyes. Clark touches her face. He says it's Clark. She looks right past him. Clark takes her hand. "Kal-El," she whispers. "Kal-El." Clark leans in. "You're too late, Kal-El," she says. Her face is evil. Clark gets the watery-eyes. He looks into her cloudy peepers to try to find some Lana in there. It's too much. He closes her eyes with his hand. He stares at Lana and then breathes heavily. He bends down and buries his head in Lana's lap. Chloe opens the door and watches Clark from the end of the hallway. She starts to tear up, too. Clark cries in a lovely shot of shadows against the daytime outside. Let the mourning for Lana begin...now!
Next week: I take a vacation! But we'll be back on April 17 and presumably some big stuff will be happening. It's a race to the finale.
