First aired February 4th, 2004

Clark and Lana in "Hereafter"

Provided by Suzanne

Altman: Good run, everybody. Don't forget to stretch it out.

Lana: Mr. Altman. I, uh, I wanted to come by. If there's anything I can do...

Altman: Well, there's nothing that any of us can do now.  She really loved this time of year.

Lana: You were really focused out there. Speaking as one of the dozens you passed.  I'm Lana.

Jordan: Jordan Cross. I just started here a couple days ago.  Sorry.

Lana:  No, it's okay. There's a lot more where that came from.

Altman: Hey, nice job out there today. When are you gonna join the--  team?  You all right?

Clark: Jordan.  The totally overwhelmed look gave you away. I'm Clark.

Jordan: Right. The mentor guy. Hi.

Clark: Hey, we were supposed to meet in the gymnasium. They said you bolted. Is everything okay?

Jordan: I'm still trying to get used to all these people. I was home schooled up until now.

Clark: Allow me to be your lifeline. All new students are assigned a mentor, most importantly because they come with map. Let me give you a lay of the land.

Jordan: Would you mind if I check with my dad?  

Clark: Sure. 

Mr. Cross: It happened again, didn't it?  Jordan, I know how much you want this to work, but I still think it's a mistake.

Jordan: No. Not today.   Don't be today.

Mr. Cross: Jordan!

Clark: Mr. Altman, are you okay?

Altman: Why did you stop me? I just, I just want to be with my little girl.  My daughter is dead, and it is my fault.

Lana: Megan, could you go and ask the nurse if Mr. Altman's ready for visitors? How's Mr. Altman?

Clark: He's pretty heavily sedated. They want to keep him here until they can do a full psych evaluation. I didn't know you and Megan knew Mr. Altman so well. 

Lana: It's, uh, really through his daughter. We were all on the cheerleading squad together back in junior high. Mr. Altman was never the same after she got hurt.

Clark: I remember she was hit by a car.

Lana: Yeah, walking home from our end of season party. The doctors said that there was no chance for recovery, but, um...  But Mr. Altman kept hoping for a miracle.

Clark: It sounds like that never came.

Lana: (Almost a whisper.) He took her off life support last month.

Clark: (Stricken.) I wouldn't wish that decision on anyone. (Pause.) It's hard when you blame yourself for everything that happened.

Lana: I'd better go.

Megan: If I could change that night, I would. I don't even remember why Julia and I were fighting.

Lana: Megan, don't do this.

Megan: Julia left that night because she was mad at me. If I had just stopped her...

Lana:  I wish I'd gone after her too, but you know, neither of us could have known what was going to happen. You can't keep blaming yourself.

Megan:  I should've told him then.

Lana: He's under sedation, Megan. I'm not sure he's even hearing you. Come on. Let's go.

Megan:  I'm so sorry.

Clark: Hey, Jordan, it's just me.

Jordan:  Yeah. Hi.

Clark: I just want to apologize for dropping mentor ball yesterday.

Jordan: Mr. Altman's lucky you were there. I just wish my dad hadn't seen it. 

Clark: Just tell him that Smallville High is rarely that exciting. Trust me, my parents wrote the book on being overprotective. You'll be just fine.  You all right?

Jordan: Yeah. I just don't like being touched.

Clark: Fair enough.

Jordan: What?

Clark: Nothing. You just had that, uh, look yesterday just before Mr. Altman jumped in front of the car. It's almost like you knew he was gonna do something.

Jordan:  I need some air.

Lana: Good night.

Girl: Bye, Lana.

Girl #2: Bye.

Adam: Aaah! It hurts! Burns!

Lana: Adam, are you all right?

Adam: Aah!

Lana: Adam, wake up!

Adam: Aah!

Adam: Lana. What happened? You okay?

Lana:  I'm fine. You were having a king-sized nightmare.

Adam: I guess.

Lana: Do you want to talk about it?

Adam: To be honest, no, not really.  I'll put some clothes on, clean up this mess.

Pete: Clark, we've been looking all over for you.  Look who gets to do the honors.

Clark: What's going on?

Chloe: You ready to hear the latest news about Lana's houseguest?

Clark: Actually, no.

Pete: "No" as in you're not interested?

Clark: No. "No" as in it's none of my business. Lana and I finally reset our relationship to the friendship level. I'm not gonna blow it by getting between her and Adam.

Pete: Wow. Clark's taking one for the team.

Clark: From now on, consider me an Adam-free zone.

Chloe: Okay, now that we can scratch gossip off the discussion list, what's next on the agenda?

Clark: What have you guys heard about that new kid? Jordan Cross?

Pete: You mean Mr. "Pathologically Afraid of Human Contact"?

Clark: I guess he made quite a first impression. Look, this is gonna sound crazy, but I think he had a premonition about Mr. Altman.

Chloe: What made you take that leap?

Clark: Let's call it a gut feeling.

Pete: Well, maybe that's the same thing that Jordan had.

Clark: What do you mean?

Chloe: Some people believe that premonitions are just heightened intuition.

Pete: Yeah, maybe he overheard something or saw a look in Altman's eyes.

Chloe: Yeah, but still, given your track record with Wall of Weirdness, I think we should look into it.

Clark:  Thanks.

Chloe: No thanks required. It's kind of fun being Woodward to your Bernstein again.

Lex: Lana, come in.

Lana: Your message said it was important. Something wrong?

Lex: I was hoping you could tell me. I understand there was an incident at the Talon last night. Apparently some neighbors heard your tenant screaming?

Lana: I think that "incident" is a pretty strong word. Adam had a bad dream. That's all. It's no big deal.

Lex: And if it had been the first time, I'd probably agree with you.

Lana: What do you mean?

Lex:  I can read an invoice.  Let's see. Charges for repairing broken windows, replacing furniture. All in the last week. Is there a reason why you didn't tell me?

Lana: Maybe I thought you'd jump to conclusions.

Lex: You have to admit, Adam's behavior is unusual. (Lex walks closer to Lana. Gentle.) And when you're on the rebound, it's easy to let your emotions outweigh your common sense.

Lana: Look, this isn't personal. Adam's been a real help around the Talon. Putting up with his nightmares is a small price to pay.

Lex: Look, it's your call. But at the very least, you should be asking yourself how much do you really know about your new friend?

Chloe: Whoa.

Clark: Chloe, I think I found something.

Chloe: Yeah? You and me both.   I just had a mega "Real World" moment with Ad--  Never mind. Sorry. Anyway, looks like you're hammering away at the Jordan story.

Clark: Yes, I pulled this off the Ledger database. 

Clark: Apparently when Jordan was six, he went ballistic outside of a roller coaster screaming that someone was going to be killed. His dad pulled him away, but when they restarted the ride, one of the cars broke loose.

Chloe:  Killing the woman standing in line with him.

Clark:  Mr. Altman wasn't Jordan's first premonition.

Chloe: All right, well, cue the spooky music... because Jordan was born on the day of the meteor shower. I took a quick trip to the courthouse and asked them to pull up anything pertaining to Cross.

Clark:  According to this, Jordan's mother died shortly after he was born... as a result of a direct hit from a meteor?

Chloe: As one life ends, another begins.

Clark: Well, that must be the connection.

Chloe: Yeah, mix that with the meteor rocks, and you could be entering John Edward territory.  This can't be good.

Jordan: Just for one second! Megan, please!

Clark: That's Jordan.

Megan: Stop it!

Jordan: You don't understand! I'm trying to help you!

Megan: Go away!

Jordan: Megan, stop! Please! I'm just asking you to let me walk you home. You don't understand! It's not what you think!

Megan: Leave me alone!

Clark: Jordan, what's going on?

Jordan: I have to help her!

Clark: Why? Calm down! What's gonna happen to Megan?

Jordan:  She's going to die, Clark! Don't you understand? She's going to die.

Clark: Jordan, hold up!

Jordan: My father was right, Clark! This was a mistake. I should've never come to school.

Clark: Jordan, I believe you. You saw something when you touched Megan, didn't you?

Jordan: I don't know what you're talking about.

Clark: Like a premonition?

Jordan:  I don't know what you're talking about!

Clark: I know about the roller coaster.  When you touched Megan, what'd you see?

Jordan:  I saw fire... smoke. Megan was screaming. She couldn't breathe. Clark, I had to warn her.

Clark:   Maybe we still can.

Clark: Megan's house is just around the corner. These visions, when they hit, what are they like?

Jordan: It's hard to describe. It's like a curtain's being pulled back just long enough for me to see the moment they die.

Clark: Have you ever been able to stop one of these visions from coming true?

Jordan: Never. My dad and I did everything we could. We called the police, the paramedics, begged people to take us seriously, but no matter what we did, the visions always came true.

Clark: That's how you knew Mr. Altman was going to kill himself.

Jordan:  Except he survived. Because of you. How did you do it? I had a vision of you too when you grabbed me in the hallway.

Clark:  What do you mean? What'd you see?

Jordan: Like you don't have an end like other people. It's like you live forever.

Clark:   Come on, Jordan. You're wrong.

Jordan: No. Maybe that's why you were able to save Mr. Altman.  Nobody's ever been able to stop one of the death's before. Maybe you can do it again for Megan.

Adams:  Excuse me.  Mr. Kent. Why am I not surprised?

Clark: Sheriff, what's happening?

Adams: We just found Megan Calder's car abandoned off the main highway. There were signs of a struggle.  Are you Jordan Cross?  I'm told you got into an argument with Miss Calder today?

Clark: I was there, Sheriff. It wasn't a big deal.

Adams: I got a missing girl, Mr. Kent. That makes everything a big deal.  We better talk.

Lana: I think it's a little early for your second triple cap, isn't it?

Chloe: Um, actually, I, uh, came to talk to you about something. Is-is Adam around?

Lana: I don't know. I haven't seen him in a while. You okay?

Chloe: Well, I'm just-- I'm having one of those "it sucks to be a reporter" days.   I know you and Adam have been spending a lot of time together, but...

Lana: Chloe, what's wrong?

Lex: They say music hath charms to soothe the savage breast.

Adam: Don't count on it. You play?

Lex:  I never really had the patience for it.

Adam: My parents would have killed for a piano like this.   I wound up learning on a secondhand junker.

Lex: It doesn't seem to have hurt your playing. That's one of Rachmaninoff's most complicated pieces.

Adam: You didn't ask me here to discuss music theory.

Lex: No. I thought we should meet.

Adam: If it's about the lamp, I'll replace it.

Lex: It's your behavior that concerns me, Adam. Lana's a friend.

Adam: For what it's worth, we both care about Lana.  What's this?

Lex: Your colorful past.

Adam: These are my school records. They're supposed to be sealed.

Lex: I'm not sure why you'd care. They're exemplary. Straight A's across the board.

Adam: I was always a good student.

Lex: Actually, I spoke with your teachers. I believe the phrases they used were "a fine pupil" and "a joy to teach."

Adam: It's nice to be appreciated.

Lex: The strange thing is they all said it, word for word, almost as if they were told what to say.   Don't worry, Adam. I'll keep checking. We all have black marks somewhere in our past.

Mr. Cross: Jordan! Are you all right?

Jordan: I had another vision. I thought I could help.  It's okay. Clark knows.

Mr. Cross: Wait for me in the truck.

Jordan: Dad, please.

Mr. Cross:   Jordan.   Excuse me.

Clark: Mr. Cross. Jordan really wants to make a go of it at school. Will you just give him one more chance?

Mr. Cross: I really appreciate all you've done, Clark, but Jordan is... special. If he's at home, at least I can try to protect him.   Jordan...

Mr. Cross: Oh, my God. Jordan!  Jordan!

Adam: I got your message. In case you didn't notice, school's out.

Lana: I was at the Torch doing some research.

They start walking together.

Adam: Hmm.

Lana:  Adam, there's-there's no easy way to ask this, but somebody found your needle in the trash today.

Adam: Technically, that's not a question.

Lana: Look, I'm trying to give you the benefit of the doubt. Are you diabetic? On some sort of medication?

Adam:  Was that the research you were doing? I mean that would explain it, right? Except diabetics are supposed to leave their syringes with the school nurse.

Lana: Believe me, I am not trying to accuse you of anything.

Adam: Yes, you are. You think I'm on drugs. The truth is you don't trust me. Never have.

Adam walks away angrily and Lana follows him.

Lana: That's not fair. You said you'd always be honest with me. Why can't you be honest now?

Adam:  Look, I want this to work, but if you're not sure, just say the word and I'm gone.

Lana: Adam!

Lana: Jordan. Are you okay?

Jordan: I'm fine.

Lana: What are you doing here?

Jordan: Hiding from my father. I think he wants to pull me out of school.

Lana: Running away isn't going to fix--

Jordan:  It's changed.

Lana: Jordan, what is it?

Jordan:  Lana, please don't leave here.

Lana: What's going on?

Jordan: I can't explain it. Something awful is about to happen. We have to go find Clark!

Lana: Clark?   What are you doing?!

Chloe: Adam? Hello?

Lex: Last I heard, breaking and entering were still against the law.

Chloe: I could say the same thing to you.

Lex:  Except I own the place. I take it you have some concerns about Lana's new friend.

Chloe: I think that's pretty obvious.  So what caused you to go all Cloak and Dagger?

Lex: Rachmaninoff.  When Adam came to see me earlier today, he was playing one of his most difficult pieces.

Chloe: Is that a crime?

Lex: No CDs, sheet music. Not even a radio.  According to his transcripts, he never took a single music class.

Chloe: So computers, kickboxing, and a master pianist. Wow. Adam's a regular renaissance man.

Lex: Like you said, that isn't a crime.

Chloe: Though it certainly piqued your interest. 

Lex: Lock up on your way out.

Jonathan: Clark? Clark, you've been looking for Jordan all over town. I think it's time you call it a night.

Clark: Dad, I was supposed to help him fit in. Instead, I take him to a crime scene, I put him on the sheriff's radar.

Jonathan: That is not your fault.

Clark: Well, he was a lot better off before he met me.

Jonathan: Clark, if he ran away, it's because he didn't feel like he had anybody at home to talk to.

Clark: His dad seemed like a good man.

Jonathan: I'm sure he is. And I'm also sure he feels like he's doing the best thing for Jordan. Look, when-- when your son has a gift, your first temptation is to hide him away, to shelter him from everything.

Clark: You didn't.

Jonathan: I sure as hell wanted to. Look, your mother convinced me that you needed to experience the whole world. Not just this farm. Ultimately she was right.  So Jordan will come home. But not until he's good and ready. Okay?

Clark: Yeah.

Jonathan: All right, why don't you come on inside, grab a bite to eat?

Clark: I'll be there in a second.

Jonathan: Okay.  Clark!

Clark: Jordan, what happened to you?

Jordan: I was in the school with Lana when somebody attacked us! I think they took her!

Clark: Who took her?

Jordan: I don't know, I didn't see him! Clark, I had another vision of Lana.

Clark: What do you mean "another"?

Jordan: I'm not sure. The other day, she touched my hand on the track. It was okay. She was peaceful, she was old, it was her time.

Clark: What, you're saying that's changed?

Jordan: She was trapped in a fire just like Megan!

Clark: Okay, okay, calm down. What else did you see?

Jordan: Stuff... on the floor. Photos burning. Lana and Megan were in one of them, but they were younger. They were in cheerleading outfits. 

Clark: Is this the girl? 

Jordan: Mr. Altman's daughter.

Clark: When I saved him, I changed everything. Even what's supposed to happen to Lana.  Okay, did you see anything that might tell us where she is?

Jordan: Uh, there was-- there was an old sign inside.

Clark: What did it say?

Jordan: It said "Wandering Hills".

Clark: I know where that is. 

Jordan: Clark, take me with you.

Clark: No way.

Jordan: I've seen the house. Maybe I can help you find it. Please.

Clark:  First sign of trouble, you back off.  Let's go.

Lana:  Mr. Altman, why are you doing this?

Megan: Please, you don't have to do this!

Altman:  You're gonna pay for what you did to Julia.

Lana: What are you talking about?

Altman: I heard you at the hospital. Megan had a fight with her and you let her leave. You should've been looking out for her.

Lana: We didn't cause the accident.

Altman: You might as well have! My little girl was out there all alone because of you!

Megan:  It wasn't our fault!

Altman: For years I blamed myself for not being there.

Lana: Mr. Altman, this is not the way.

Altman: But now I know I wasn't responsible. You two killed her.

Megan:  No, we didn't--  Please, no!  Oh, no! No!  Aah! Help us! Please!

Jordan: Clark, look!

Clark:  Jordan, stay in the car.

Jordan: He's got Lana and Megan. You're going to need some help!

Clark: Stay in the car, Jordan. 

Clark: Lana? Lana.

Lana:  Save Megan. 

Altman: Get out! 

Clark: Jordan!

Jordan: I'll get Megan! 

Altman: You stay away from me! I just want to be with my girl!

Clark:  Come on. Come on, let's go!

Jordan: Coach? We've got to get out of here!

Altman: You! It's your fault! 

Clark: Where's Jordan?

Lana: I didn't see him come out with us.

Lana: Clark!

Clark: Run!

Lana and Megan run away from the house as Clark goes back inside. He finds Jordan unconscious on the floor and runs to him.

Clark: Jordan!

He throws Jordan over his shoulder and looks around for Altman.

Clark: Mr. Altman! Coach Altman! You got to get out of here!

Clark runs from the house with Jordan over his shoulder. Once he gets to the edge of the yard, he puts Jordan down on the ground and lies on top of him just as the house explodes sending fire and debris shooting in every direction. The fire engulfs Clark and Jordan. When it clears, Clark sits up. His face is smudged with black and his jacket is burnt, but Jordan is unburned. He shakes Jordan's shoulders and feels his neck for a pulse as Lana and Megan run toward him.

Clark: Jordan!

Lana: Clark! Clark, are you okay?

Megan: Oh, my God, is he okay?

Clark: He's not breathing.

Megan: Jordan!

Clark starts giving Jordan chest compressions.

Clark: Come on, Jordan. You can't die on me.

Jordan: Clark.

Clark: It's okay. You're all right.  You're gonna be okay.

Lana: Lex?

Lex: Lana. How you feeling?

Lana:  Between the fire and my leg, I've seen enough hospitals to last a lifetime.

Lex: Have a seat.

Lana: Thanks.  Lex, I think you were right about taking a closer look at Adam.

Lex: Why the sudden change of heart?

Lana: Chloe caught him using some sort of drug at school, and when I confronted him about it, he almost lost it.

Lex: Lana, I've had people assume the worst about me all my life. Trust me, it's hard to respond when people always jump to the wrong conclusions.

Lana: Lex, the last time we talked, I was under the impression that you'd be happier if I kicked him out.

Lex: It's not my choice to make. But I've had a chance to ask a few questions. Adam hasn't been healing as well as his doctors had hoped. Apparently he's part of a clinical medical trial testing a new drug.

Lana: That might explain the needle. It doesn't explain why he was hiding it. I'm just beginning to wonder who I let into my life.

Lex: You should trust your instincts.

Lana:  Thanks, Lex.

Lex smiles. Lana gets up from her seat and leaves the room. Lex reopens his laptop and we see he has a file labeled "Knight, Adam" on the screen with a picture of Adam and a list of Adam's personal information. Lex studies the screen.

Act 4 Scene 2

Outside shot of Jordan's house. Day. Clark and Jordan enter the house after coming home from school.

Clark: I promise your second week of school will be easier.

Jordan: The paramedics said if you hadn't given me CPR, I'd be... dead.

Clark: But you're not.

They go into the living room.

Jordan: I saw her, Clark.

Clark: Who?

Jordan: My mom. In that moment, right before you pulled me back.  She was beautiful. I tried to run to her, but couldn't.

Clark: Maybe it just wasn't your time.

Jordan: When I woke up, they were gone.

Clark: The visions?

Jordan: Maybe I was destined to lose them when I met you. 

Lana: Mind if I interrupt? Jordan, I brought your homework.

Clark: Why do I get the feeling you've replaced me as your mentor?

Lana: I've offered to help Jordan get back on his feet, and he is going to help me become faster on mine.

Clark:  I think you're getting the hang of this high school thing.  How you doing?   I know that look. You sure you're okay?

Lana:  Yeah, I'm fine, Clark.

Clark:  I'll see you tomorrow. 

Lana: So, we've got a lot of work to do.  What's wrong?

Jordan:  Lana, it's about your friend. The one in the hall? Adam.  He's from Oklahoma, right?

Lana: I don't know. He's never really said anything. Jordan, what's going on?

Jordan: I think something really bad happened to him.

Lana: Well, he's been in the hospital. He was pretty seriously injured a few months ago.

Jordan:  This is going to sound really strange, but... I think it's worse than that. I don't think he was just hurt. I think he died.

Martha: You're awfully quiet today.

Clark: Having someone tell you you can change destiny is a lot to handle.

Martha: Jordan's visions really struck a chord.

Clark: Or just brought up questions I had all along. Mom, by helping Mr. Altman, I put three other lives in jeopardy.

Martha: But you were there for them.

Clark: If it wasn't for me, he would've never had the chance to hurt anyone.

Martha:  Clark, what's this really about?

Clark: I'm just wondering if that's why I was really sent here. To change destiny. What if I make a wrong choice and I'm not there to make it right?

Martha: It's a huge responsibility. You have to concentrate on the good that you do. Think of all the people you've saved. Your dad and me and Lex. He's turned out to be a really good friend. Sweetheart, you just have to do the best you can. You can't save everybody.  Well, I'm gonna take some of these out to your dad.

Clark: I'll do it. 

Martha: Well, could you please make sure that at least a couple of them make it to the barn?

Clark:  Yes.

Martha: Thank you.

Clark:  Thanks, Mom.

Clark:  Dad?  Dad... Dad!  Dad?

Jonathan:  Not now! Not yet.  I love you, son. 

Clark: Dad?!  Mom! Mom!!! Mom!!!
