Lex: What are you listening to?
Woman: My favorite song.
[ Dance music playing ]
Lex: What's your name?
Woman: Does it really matter?
[ Knock on
Woman: Housekeeping. Aah!
Corinne: Mr. Luthor has no
comment. Don't say anything. Look, people, I've told
you, my client has no comment, all right?
Reporter on TV: Billionaire Lex
Luthor was released today on $ 5
million bail. But we're told he is still the only suspect in the
grisly slaying earlier this morning of a young woman whose body has yet
Corinne: So, you want to tell me how you wound up lying naked, covered
in blood, next to a dead girl you hardly knew?
Lex: I didn't kill her.
Corinne: I didn't ask. Lex, you're paying me to get you off, not
to prove you're innocent. But you're going to have to be straight
with me. Were you drinking last night?
Lex: Yes. At the fundraiser in the hotel. We had champagne.
Lex: Well, it wouldn't be the first time.
Corinne: Is it possible that you were drugged?
Corinne: Well, if you were drugged, it'll show up in the blood test
I had you take. In the meantime, you're gonna have to try and
remember anything you can about this girl.
Lex: I can't. She had a pink MP3 player. We listened to
Corinne: Well, that wasn't on the evidence list. Are you sure
that she had it with her at the hotel?
[Knock on door]
Shannon: Excuse me. Uh Corinne, it's the D.A.
Corinne: Thank you, Shannon. I'll be right there. You stay
put. It's a media circus out there, and I don't want you saying
Lex: Your bedside manner
Corinne: I'm not here to hold your hand, Lex. You want a hug, call
Lex: Clark. I take it you saw my walk of shame on the news?
Clark: How are you holding up?
Lex: Not so great, actually. I trust
you're here as a friend.
Clark: Just tell me you didn't do this.
Lex: I met a girl at the opera. I took her
to a hotel. I didn't kill her.
Clark: Who was she?
Lex: I don't know.
Clark: Wait, you
slept with her, but you didn't know her name? It's one of those
nights that never happens. You meet somebody, and you just get
in the moment. I'm guilty of that, but I'm not a murderer.
It was my
father. He's framing me.
Clark: Your father's in prison.
Lex: You really think that
matters? Go home, Clark. You don't want to be involved in this,
[ Voices yelling Demons! Witches!]
Isobel: Je vais dormait
seulement un peu. (I am going to sleep just for a while)
[ Speaks in latin ]
Wilkins: Countess Marguerite Isobel Theroux... You have been found
guilty of practicing the darkest art. Witchcraft. I
hereby condemn you to burn in the fires of hell.
[ Speaking in french ]
Woman: Tu m'as trahis Isobel,
maintenant tu vas mourir. (You have betrayed me Isobel, so now you are
going to die)
[ Screams ]
Lionel: Clark, thank you for
coming. It's good to see you. How's Lex? I've been
trying to contact him. Since I heard, but he won't speak
Clark: He thinks you're trying to frame him. Are you?
Lionel: No, Clark.
should I believe you?
Lionel: There's no reason you should.
[ Sighs ]
Lionel: Listen to me I was ill, Clark. The liver disease I had
a death sentence. And...something happened. I can't explain
it. I woke
up on the floor, there was a riot, I... I felt as if... a different
of energy had been... inside me. Something... strong and...
good. I was
changed. And my liver had healed.
Clark: What was it?
Lionel: I don't know. All I can
say was... it was miraculous. I could see... the darkness, the --
power that had
always been inside me. I can see it in Lex now. I have to
help him, Clark.
Clark: Do you think he did it?
Lionel: No. This was a crime of passion, or it was an
elaborate frame. The girl --did she have a car?
Clark: Lex told the police
that he took her to the hotel in his ferrari.
Lionel: Then they'll look for her
car at the opera house. But they won't find it there. Lex
He would've had the girl drive her own car back to the hotel, so he
could slip away in the morning and wouldn't have to worry about taking
her home. The patterns -- the girl --she had brown hair, yes? She
reminded him of Lillian. It's his mother. You have to help
I find this car...
Lionel: Anything you find --bring it to
me. I can help you.
Clark: I'll see where it leads. But I still don't trust
Lionel: I know. But you will be back, won't you?
Martha: Stupid, stupid.
Lana: I swear, one time that thing actually bit me.
Martha: Oh, Hi, Lana. It does take a certain touch. Are you
feeling all right? You look a little pale.
Lana: I just had this really weird dream last night. I can't seem
to shake it.
Martha: Oh, I'm sorry, Lana. you have a visitor
Lana: She's here for
Lana: Excuse me.
Genevieve: Lana. It's wonderful to finally meet you. You
Lana: I'm sorry. Do I know you?
Genevieve: I'm Jason mother. Did I catch you off- guard?
Lana: No, no. Yeah, actually. Um, you have a little. I
just didn't know that he was expecting you.
Genevieve: Well, he isn't. Could we sit?
Lana: Sure. Would you like some tea?
Genevieve: Um, no
you. I know this may
sound impossibly British, but I just can't bring myself to drink tea
a mug. Is that terrible?
Lana: No, of course not.
Genevieve: How's Jason? I...haven't
spoken to him since he left Paris, and he wouldn't answer any of my
calls. I'm afraid that, um, I'm afraid he thinks that I'm angry
Lana: You're not?
Genevieve: I simply want to see him again.
Lana: Mrs. Teague, I... I've
wanted to meet you, but if Jason isn't ready to be a part of your life,
I don't think that I can, either. Not behind his back.
Genevieve: Well, the
last thing in the world I want to do is to, uh, put you in the middle
all this, but... if you could just tell him that I'm here and that I'm
staying at the Smallville Inn... Tell him I want to see him.
Genevieve: Thanks. You know, it's interesting. A moment ago, when
I first met you,
you looked at me as though you recognized me. How can that be?
Good-bye, Lana. You must come and visit me in Metropolis. You are
so beautiful. I
see now why he had to be with you.
Chloe: Where have you been all

Chloe: Why? Are you backlogged with your
community service hours or something?

crazy, but Lionel gave me a lead in Lex's case. He said that I

out. There were 22 cars that were checked in to the hotel valet
night after 10 P.M. When Lex said he left the opera. Now, of those
cars, all but three were hotel guests, and of those three, two belonged
to guys who had too much to drink at the hotel bar. Leaving
Exactly, but I haven't been able to trace a name or address.
Chloe: Why am I
not surprised? Let me try.
Clark: You know what the weird thing is? The police
aren't even looking into this.
Chloe: Well, of course not, Clark. They think
that Lex is guilty, and they've already got their man. But don't you
think it's possible that this is all just a set-up? I mean,
Lionel Luthor goes all Hannibal Lecter and tells you what to look for and where to find
Clark: I don't
think so. Look, I can't explain this, but something happened to
prison. I think it changed him.
Clark: And what if he really can help?
Chloe: Clark, he's the master manipulator. You cannot trust him,
besides, Lex is in great hands. I mean, he's got Corinne Harper
his defense. They call her "The Barracuda." What he
really needs is a
good publicist. Have you seen this? The police have interviewed
women that have slept with Lex in the last year. What's
Clark: Lex told
me that this little one night stand was something that never happens.
you believed him?
Clark: I've gotta believe somebody, Chloe. There it is.
[ Computer beeps ]
Chloe: Eve Andrews... age 28. Lives in Metropolis.
[ Floor creaks ]
Clark: Lex, What are you doing?
Lex: I'm saving my ass, Clark.
What the hell are you doing here?
[ Sirens wailing ]
Lex: You gotta help me, please.
Clark: You were burning evidence,
Lex. Not exactly the actions of an innocent man.
Lex: Come on, Clark, think about it. If I killed that girl,
why would I take a nap next to her body? So the maid could find? It
doesn't make any sense.
Clark: Neither does breaking into her house, but you did that.
You better be honest with me, because right now I'm an accomplice.
Lex: I didn't ask you to show. How did you even know to go there?
Clark: I tracked down her car.
Lex: Did you call the cops, too?
Lex: Because this is gonna be all over the 6:00 news
Clark: Why'd you go there, Lex?
Lex: I got a call from Corinne's office...
saying they had a lead on an address. I thought maybe I could
who she was. I had no idea what I was walking into.
Clark: What'd you find out?
Lex: Her name's Eve Andrews. And as you could tell from the stack
she's been stalking me for some time.
Clark: So you did know her.
Lex: No, only by
name --which she failed to tell me at the fundraiser, so how was I
supposed to know? Clark, you know I didn't do this. It's my father
trying to get back at me. He knows about all these
stalkers. Luthor Corp's
lawyers compiled a database of them last year. My father knew Eve
be the perfect victim to make it look like I had motive.
Clark: I don't think it's your father, Lex. I went to see him. He
wants to help.
Lex: He was the one who sent
you looking for a car, wasn't he?
Clark: Yes --
Lex: You're playing right into his
Clark: Lex --
Lex: You can't straddle the fence on this one, Clark! My father
and I are enemies. You have to decide who you really trust.
Chloe: She was
stalking him, and he didn't know what she looked like?
Clark: He said he'd
never seen her before. Lex lied about a lot of things. He
lied about all
those women. Do you think he could've done it?
Chloe: I'd have to say the
whole fire-starter thing doesn't exactly scream "innocence," but
something really strange about this. Look at this.
Clark: Wait, I thought Lex's
attorneys would have all this under lock and key.
Chloe: Yeah, well know people at the top,
but I know people at the bottom, and they work for tips. Check this
See? She's wearing two diamond earrings. See that?
Chloe: Okay, now, we're
gonna skip through all this gross Zalman King stuff... just before they
get out of the elevator onto the penthouse floor, and look.
Clark: She lost an
Chloe: Exactly. Now, the police report said that the dead woman was
wearing two diamond earrings. So either she found it, or...
Clark: Lex was
with two different women.
Corinne: Thank you, Shannon. That
was my assistant.
Your tox screen came back negative, Lex. There were no drugs in your

not beyond my father's capability.
Corinne: They've got you lying next to the
body, red in blood, and
that they've I.D. the victim, they also have motive.
Lex: Why, because she
was stalking me?
Corinne: Yes. Do you even know why she was stalking you, Lex?
Because you slept with her 18 months ago. And then you sent her a
diamond earrings as a consolation prize. How could you not
Lex: I don't always get their names or remember their faces.
Corinne: I suppose it
doesn't help that we all look alike, does it? I was your type, too,
Or don't you remember that, either?
Lex: I remember, Corinne.
Corinne: Ooh... goodie
Lex: You know, you must be enjoying this on some level -- seeing me
pay for my indiscretions.
Corinne: Yeah, I'd be lying if I said there wasn't a
certain amount of satisfaction, seeing you hoisted on your own petard.
Lex: On the plus side, the view from
up here is exceedingly clear. You see, I've been thinking that
did this would need to have access to my legal files to know Eve was
stalking me. I thought it was my dad, but maybe I was

Corinne: You know what? I knew there might
be a conflict of interest when I took this case. But I'd hoped we
past all that. Apparently, I was wrong. I'm removing myself
Chloe: So the police still
haven't picked up on the missing earring
thing, and according to people at the front desk, they haven't
found anything yet. So that's where we're at.
Clark: Well, if I were an
Chloe: Let's re-enact the event, okay? So Lex had Eve up against
wall right here, so... okay, come on, big
boy, it's for
the cause of truth and justice. Now push me up against the wall.
Clark: I don't
Chloe: And her hand was like this... and I think his hand was like
this. And they were... maybe he knocked the earring off accidentally.
Yeah. Yeah, and then she pushed him... up against this wall over here
like this. Hi.
[ Ding ]
Woman: Oh, my.
Clark: It's okay, you can come in.
Woman: Um, no, that's
fine. We'll just take the stairs.
Chloe: No, but nothing was happening. We
weren't doing anything, really. Hey, Clark. What if the
down this crack?
Lionel: I'm glad you came
back, Clark. But why did you bring me
Clark: I didn't think Lex would tell me the truth.
Lionel: And you believe that I
Clark: Well, you wanted to help. I'm trusting you. That
girl who Lex met at the opera.
Lionel: Eve Andrews, yes?
Clark: Well, that's the thing.
Eve Andrews was wearing two earrings when she died. I think
girls, and I think the girl in the elevator is still alive. I
know how to find her.
Lionel: Hell hath no fury like a woman
scorned. When I was younger and I wanted to get rid of a woman, I
send her a pair of diamond earrings -- delivered by courier, no messy
farewells. It was my signature. My son, it seems, is
carrying on the
tradition. The girl on the elevator is a former lover of
[ Knock on door ]
Lex: Okay, Corinne, I'm here. What's this new
evidence you want to talk about? First you quit, now you're back.
I came a long way. What do you want? Come on.
uh, someone's been killed.
Woman: I'm sorry. All lines are busy at the moment.
Please hold for the first emergency operator.
Lex: What are you doing?
wrong, Lex? Don't you recognize me?
Shannon: Promise to be quiet?
Lex: How'd you get past my security?
Shannon: I work for your law firm, Lex. I told them that you'd
been drinking in Metropolis and you needed a ride home. They
helped me carry you up here.
Lex: Why here? Why are you this?
Shannon: Because this is where it all happened. This is where I
earned my earrings...the first time. You see, you remember the
other night, but you don't remember the first time. I do. I
had a fiancé, but you didn't know that. I cheated on him
because I thought that you loved me. And when I broke it off with
him, I called to tell you, that but you wouldn't take my call.
Lex: I'm sorry. If I had know
Shannon: But you didn't. And then three months later, I bump into
you outside of Corinne's office and you don't even recognize. It
was like I never happened to you. And so I started going through
your files..it turns out I wasn't the only one.
Lex: Eve Andrews
Shannon: Among others. She was such a fan. I told her that
you wanted to make amends, and she agreed to come to the hotel. And
then I slipped a little something into your champagne after we made
love. It's funny your blood test didn't pick that up.
Lex: You rigged the test.
Shannon: I just switched out the results.
Lex: You were the one who sent me to her place. You called
Shannon: You were supposed to get caught. But you didn't.
And so here
Jason: Hey. What's wrong? You haven't said anything all
night. Talk to
Lana: I met your mom.
Lana: Here. She, uh... she said that you
weren't returning her calls, so she came to see me. She's staying
at the Smallville Inn. She
wants you to stop by.
Jason: Why didn't you tell me earlier?
Lana: I don't
know. I guess, um... maybe I don't want to be the one passing
between you and your mother.
Jason: I wouldn't have asked you to do that. She
had no right to come here. Sorry.
Lana: She seemed really worried about you.
Jason: I'll bet she did. I'll bet she seemed sad and heart
not. She's manipulative. And all my life, she's tried to
What, is there something else?
Lana: I dreamed about her. I mean... I was
dreaming about Isobel Theroux. She was being burned at the
stake. And suddenly, your mom was there.
Jason: Well, it's probably not that unusual to dream about someone you
Lana: Jason... I dreamt about her before I met her.
Clark: There it is. Just
Chloe: How did he get the serial number so small? It's Lilliputian.
Clark: Lasers. Lionel said all the high-end diamond dealers do
it. In case it ever gets lost or stolen, you can track it down.
Chloe: Or it can
track you down. Oh. Wow, I still can't believe that lionel
called his old jewelry guy and had him send over the purchase
right, give me the numbers.
Chloe: Here we go. Two diamond
earrings...wow. Very expensive. Couriered to Miss
Clark: Shannon Bell --How do I know that name?
Chloe: Well, according to this, she
works in Lex's law firm.
Clark: We have to warn him.
Chloe: I'll call the police.
[ Super speed sound ]
Shannon: You know, you could've
stopped all this, Lex.
All you had to do was recognize me outside of the opera, just say, "Hi,
Shannon... It's nice to see you." But you didn't. I was
earrings that you bought me. We had sex again, and you still
recognize me. I had a life, Lex. I had a
fiancé. You ruined my
life. And you didn't even know who I was. And you do this
all the time.
It has to stop.
Jonathan: I'm glad Lex was
found innocent, but I sure wish you would've come to us before you got
Clark: Well, at first, Dad, I just wanted to help. Then I had to
figure out if I could trust him or not.
Martha: What did you decide?
Clark: I haven't. I mean, the way he treated those women. It
showed me a side of Lex I hadn't seen before. I mean, how could
you just not care that you hurt someone?
Jonathan: He's just following, what he's learned, son. That's
Clark: There's something
else you should know. I went to see Lionel.
Clark: He wanted to help Lex, and he did. I couldn't have done
it without him.
Jonathan: Clark. You know
how dangerous that man is to you.
Clark: But, Dad, that's the thing. I think
he's changed. And his liver's healed.
Martha: I thought his condition was
Clark: I think something in me actually healed him.
Jonathan: Clark, does Lionel know about this?
Clark: No. He actually thinks it's a miracle.
Martha: It is.
Clark: Look, I know
this sounds crazy, but I really think he has changed. I could see it in
Jonathan: Clark, as far as I'm concerned, Lionel Luthor is never
gonna change, and neither is Lex. Now, we're just gonna have to
Lex: I understand you helped
vindicate me, Dad. There's just no telling the influence you seem
to have from behind these bars.
Lionel: I pointed you Clark in the right direction, that's all I
did. You still believe I had something to do with this, don't
Lex: No. I just
you must want something in return.
Lionel: Yes. Yes, I do.
Lex: I'm not helping
you get released.
Lionel: You don't understand. I know
that I deserve to be
here... in this terrible place. I have no one to blame but
[ Sighs ]
[ Chuckles ]
Lex: I'm in a generous mood, Dad, so let's say I believe that.
What do you want from me?
Lionel: I want to be your father... Lex. If you'll let
Lex: You've got your health, Dad. Don't expect other miracle.
Lex: I wanted to
say thank you. And I'm sorry. I know you were only trying
to help me.
Clark: How long is this going to continue, Lex?
Lex: I don't know. What do you want
mme to tell you?
Clark: I don't want you to tell me anything. I want you to
Lex: I don't know if I can.
Clark: Then it seems the only person that you
care about is yourself. There's a whole
side of you that
I don't know about, Lex. And what else don't I know about you?
Lex: You don't
know that, every day, I wonder why I keep going, why I do the things I
You know, Shannon might have been crazy, but she was right about

it. I see that now.
Clark: Well, that's a start.
Lex: You know, there was a
moment the other night when that fire she set was coming towards

fire went out, and she was lying on the floor. And suddenly, I
Clark: The last few days, Lex, I... I thought your father was
being more honest with me than you were. I hated that
feeling. I felt
like we were enemies.
Lex: Don't give up on me yet.
Jason: What are you doing
Genevieve: I know you don't want to talk to me, Jason. But every
mother has a right to see her own son.
Jason: You didn't come here to see me.

Jason: It's the way you go about
it. But I'm not gonna let you do it this time. Because it's

Genevieve: When will that be?
Jason: I don't know. But
you can't come back here.
Genevieve: I just want you to know, Jason, that I'm really
glad that you're happy. I mean, Lana is...an enchanting
girl. I can see
why you moved to the middle of nowhere to be with her. She is --
special. I knew you'd meet
her one day.
Jason: Did I meet her by accident or not?
Genevieve: What on earth are you
implying? Of course you did, Jason. How else could you meet
