The song continues into the next scene. Clark is in the cave he discovered with Wolf Girl (and I'm very glad they didn't completely forget that storyline). Clark holds up the now-crystal necklace and shines a flashlight up to the spiral cave drawing. He stashes the necklace when he hears someone approach. It's Lana. "I called your house. Your mom said you were down here," she says, shakily. "I am so sorry," Clark says. Lana is crying. She shakes her head and cry-smiles. "I never should have sent that video," she says. Clark tells her not to do that to herself. He approaches. She says that Jocko was missing in action, fighting for his life, thinking she wasn't there and that she didn't care. "It's not your fault," Clark says. Lana comes to Clark. She walks right past him. She says that every person she's ever gotten close to has left -- her parents, Nell, Jocko. Um, Nell asked you to come along to Metropolis and you abandoned her. Lana sniffs. "I know I haven't been a good friend," she says. You think? Clark lies that she's been a great friend. Lana says she's doubted Clark and accused him of things, and that still he's there, protecting her. "I don't care if you have secrets, Clark," she says. I get emotional here in spite of myself. "You're the one. Good. Constant thing in my life and I don't want to lose you, too." For the record, Lana is emoting the crap out of this scene. And it's good, even if you have to wonder how these two people made the death of three others -- one of them a soldier who died overseas -- totally about themselves and their friendship. I guess Clark and Lana must be aliens from the sun, because the world sure does seem to revolve around them. Clark hugs Lana. She cries on his shoulder. "I'm not going anywhere," Clark says. Lana cries some more. Clark looks off to the wall. Nice overhead shot of the cave. Clark's flashlight shines up to the ceiling.
And that's it. One down, six to go. The season can still be saved, right? Right? Somebody saaaaaaaaaaaave it!
