Smallville (2001–2011): Season 3, Episode 2 - Phoenix - full transcript

Lex returns to Smalville and the Lex mansion, and invites Dr. Helen Bryce for a second honeymoon while trying to find out if it was her or his father who attempted to kill him. Meanwhile, Clark also returns to Smallville and the Kent farm, but Morgan Edge finds him and threatens to kill Jonathan and Martha in to get what Clark stole from Lionel Luthor's safe, which is the stolen vile of Clark Kent's blood. With the financial status of the Kent family in dire straights, the farm is sold in an auction, but there is a surprise in the end. Also, Lana tries to declare her love for Clark, but he rejects her love out of fear that she may discover his secret. Clark also returns to Smallville High and to the Torch newspaper under Chloe who continues to investigate Clark's origins.

Previously on Smallville:

Smallville's not my home anymore.

The longer he's on the red Kryptonite,
the worse he gets.

You've known where he's
been this entire time...

Lana, he's not acting
like himself.

Either Helen managed this on her own,
or your father set you both up.

Clark, what is the matter with you.
Your parents love you. I love you.

If I don't go and get him now,
we may lose him forever.

I need you to break into
a secured building.

The office on the 60th floor,
has a very valuable package.

Are you willing to sacrifice anything,
to get him back?


Son. You're coming home with me.

Looks like the old man
has been working out!

Jor-El and I have an understanding.

I'm taking you home.

I don't care what he's done to you.
You're not taking me anywhere.


You don't realize how dangerous you are
when you're wearing that ring.

It's not the ring. I was born that way.

You just can't accept it.

What in the hell did Jor-El
do to you, Clark?

He made sure I'd never forget
who my real father is.

Go on.

Do it.

If I could raise a son
that could kill, then kill!


Dad? Dad.

Season 3 Episode 2

- Clark.
- Mom.

Oh, Clark!


I am so sorry, Mom, for everything.
For the baby...

We never blamed you.

- Oh, my God!
- Dad.

- What happened?
- Whatever Jor-El did...

must've been too much
for his body to handle.

The important thing is that Clark is
back home with us now.

Abraham threw Isaac on the pyre
to prove his faith to God.

What was your excuse?



Disappointed I'm not basking
in the fires of hell?


put the gun down.

Sorry I screwed up your plan.

Why would I murder
my own flesh and blood?


- you're not yourself.
- I'm feeling more like myself than ever.

What the hell did you do with Helen?

She's living very comfortably
in your mansion.

Why don't you ask her.

- She's alive?
- Yes.

And she told a truly harrowing
tale of survival...

that left you
quite the posthumous hero.

She said the pilot took your money
and bailed out.

- Lex, we're going down!
- There must be parachutes!

There's only one. Come on!

I'm not going without you!

Count to three and pull.
They'll send a rescue plane for you.


I love you.

Now, go.

Quite a story, don't you think?

A sacrificial death that would make
any father proud.

But something tells me that's not
what really happened, Lex.

- I warned you not to trust her, Lex.
- Don't turn this on Helen!

You had my name carved into a tombstone!

I had search parties scouring
half the world for you.

Looks like you picked the wrong half.

What would I have to gain from your death?


As your widow, Helen just became
one of the richest women in the world.

Helen never cared about the money.

Oh, but she did, Lex.

Ask her what happened to the vial with the
blood sample after you returned it to her.

Dad, I just don't get it.

Why would Jor-El help bring me back...

when he's the one
who wanted me to leave?

You made a deal with him, didn't you?


the most important thing right now
is that my son has his life back.

I'm not sure I want it back.

And being Kal-El,
I could just do whatever I wanted.

It was like this huge weight
had been lifted off me.

Look, I'm not saying that staying
is gonna solve all your problems...

but at least this way we can face it
together as a family.

I wish it were that easy.

What is that?

I don't know.

This guy, Morgan Edge,
hired me to steal it.

- Clark, you gotta take this thing back.
- Dad...

I stole it from Lionel Luthor.

We better find out exactly what it is
we're dealing with.

That's my blood, isn't it?

It's your blood.

Do you think Lionel knows?

Helen told me she never labeled it
before somebody stole it from her office.

Why would Lionel want my blood?

It doesn't matter now.

I'm starting to wonder
what he really knows about me.

We've managed to stay
one step ahead of Lionel Luthor so far.

Why don't you just focus on people
closer to home, okay?

I like Scotch.

- What's this?
- It's our old special. A Suicide.

I hope your tastes haven't changed.

Nothing ever changes, Lionel.

Not even when you dress it up
in a designer suit or a penthouse office.

Yeah, it's sad the same thing
can't be said about friendship.

I kind of suspected you had an inside
contact, but I gotta hand it to you.

Very creative.

Buying off my daughter-in-law...

that's even low for you, Morgan.

Oh, well.

All right, all right,
let me guess, let me guess.

The idea was to steal the vial
and sell it back to me...

at a healthy markup, right?

What are you gonna do, have me
charged with breaking and entering?

Why settle for breaking and entering?
I can have you put away for good.

I'd be careful, Lionel.

- You've got a lot further to fall.
- Yeah.

But I'm the one who's got the evidence.

And remember, the statute of limitations
on murder never runs out.

You got 24 hours to get that vial
back to me.

- Hi.
- Hi?

I don't even know
what to say to that, Clark.

I'm sorry...

for the way I acted in Metropolis.

I really messed things up.

I keep telling myself that it wasn't you.


then I think back on all the things
that have happened, and I realize...

that I don't know who you really are.

I know you need an explanation.

No, I don't.

You warned me there were things
about you that I wouldn't understand.

I guess I just didn't want to believe it.

I was protecting you.

From what?

That's the part I can't figure out,
because, Clark...

the only thing
that keeps hurting me is you.

After everything you said
before you left...

did you even miss me?

I missed you every second.

But I can't keep doing this to you.

Then don't.

Lana, I'm not sure if I'm even gonna stay.

Well, when you decide, let me know.

Home sweet home.

Lex. Oh, thank God!

Trust me, I've done that already.

He seems to be the only one
on my side lately.

But the rescue, it was called off. How...?

Small fishing boat spotted the smoke
from my fire.

I never gave up hoping.

Just in case, it was certainly generous
of you to make me out to be a hero.

I'm so sorry, Lex.
I shouldn't have lied to everyone.

- So why did you?
- I just couldn't face...

what really happened up there.

I woke up to find the pilot parachuting
from the plane...

just like I told everyone.
I couldn't wake you.

Lex! Lex!

I realized you drank a whole glass
of champagne...

and I only had a sip.
We must've been drugged.

The plane was going down, and I panicked.

You always think that you're gonna be
brave in a situation like that...

but when it really happens, I guess,
your survival instincts kick in.

Survival of the fittest.

I guess you really are a Luthor now.

You don't believe me?

I know you worked for my father.

After I gave you the blood back
and apologized...

you turned around and sold it to him.

Your father said if I gave him the blood,
he'd leave us alone forever.

He's playing us against each other.

We seem to do a good job
of that on our own.

If you want to annul this marriage,
I'll get out of your life.

But for what it's worth...

I do love you.

I must admit, this is the last place
I expected you to show up.

How'd you find me?

- Where's my package?
- I don't have it.

I wonder if the cops want to know
where you are.

I don't think you heard me!

The package is gone!

Luthor doesn't know who took it,
so forget about it!

Take your hands off of him right now!

I said, now!

Take your sorry ass down the road
back to Metropolis.

I don't want to see you
in Smallville again. Ever.

Kind of far from your new hood,
aren't you, Clark?

I just came to say thank you.

Oh, it's one of those days.

Because I can never tell with you whether
it's gonna be an apology or an accusation.

Chloe, I gave you absolutely no reason
to stand by me.

But you knew where I was
all summer and didn't tell.

Yeah, well, that's what friends
do for each other, Clark.

Talk to Lana yet?

I tried.

That's it?

After two years of nonstop Lana-lusting,
that's the best you can do? Come on.

I think it's for the best.

You're not staying, are you?

I haven't made up my mind yet.

You can't keep running away, Clark.

We all do things we regret.

Sometimes you have to stop
and face your demons.

Am I too early for the farm auction?


Three months on a deserted island
was almost worth it...

to see the look on your face right now.

Oh, man!

Lex, we thought you died.

Well, apparently, fate has
bigger plans for me.

I heard about the farm.

Anything I can do?

No, Lex, you know my dad.

It's good to see you.

What happened?

Something I didn't know I was capable of.

It's ironic. In the most remote solitude,
I still manage to find an enemy.

I suppose I was just hallucinating
from malaria.

But the enemy I found was real.

I got a good look at myself.

Or at least the part
I've always tried to ignore.

Lex, I...

I guess we all gotta take a look
at our dark side sooner or later.

The problem is,
if you stare at it long enough...

it can get hard
to tell the two sides apart.


- You can't keep avoiding me, Lana.
- I'm not avoiding you.

I worked late,
and I ran errands this morning.

At 5:30 in the morning?

You want to cut the pretenses? Fine.
You lied to me about Clark.

Something we have in common, then.

I have apologized to you 100 times
for not telling you about Clark and me.

You're right, and I'm over it.

So let me say I'm sorry.
We can call it even.

Chloe, this is so much bigger than me.
How could you let everyone worry?

Because the more pressure I put on him,
the more he pulled away.

I mean, you saw him, Lana.

He wasn't the charming flannel king we
all know and love. It was like he was...

A different person.


Let's face it, Lana,
Clark has more issues than Rolling Stone.

Look, I know what I did was wrong.

And as much as I hate to admit it...

it felt really good being
the person he confided in again.

Clark's always been more comfortable
talking to you.

It's because he's not in love with me.

That didn't take long.

I thought I'd leave for a while,
give you some space to think things over.


I've had more than enough space
the last few months.

I'd rather share it with someone.

I thought we can give the honeymoon
a second try.

You don't let go of things, Lex.
I know you.

Yes, you do.

You and I understand each other
because we're similar creatures.

We've both done our share
of maneuvering.

In a twisted way, I guess that's
why we're perfect for each other.

I want to be with you, Lex.

But you know your father
will never leave us alone.

Don't worry.

I have a feeling he won't be
interfering in our lives anymore.

- Hey, Mom! Dad!
- Yes, Kal.

Didn't I tell you not to ever
come back here?

I wanted to meet the parents.
Nice people.

- Mom.
- I wouldn't do that if I were you.

Clark! Son.

Don't do anything. It's okay.

I know you're quick, but you can't
get to both of them at the same time.

I don't have what you're looking for.

Do you want me to explain that
to Lionel Luthor?

- No, Clark...
- Wait!



What the hell is this?

It's what you're looking for.

It better be.

Extraordinary how the smell
of creosote and algae...

can take you back 30 years, isn't it?

- A lot of memories buried here.
- Yeah, where they belong.

Don't tell me I've come
all the way out here for nothing.

Intriguing presentation.

It's not the packaging that is important.

- Unless you don't trust me.
- Trust you?

Trust has never had anything
to do with our friendship.

It's identical.


If I didn't know any better,
I'd think the blood was liquid gold.

I can't imagine what the real source
would be worth to you.

the source is a mystery to me.

My contact turned out to be,
let's say, uncooperative.

They were holding out on you.

What if I were to tell you that this is
not the sample I stole?

I got this straight from the source.



Yes, sir.

That was Edge. He wants us
to bring the kid to him.

Do you know where the Kents are?

Move it!


Please leave her out of this.


To a second chance.

You're not drinking?

Well, I sort of lost
my taste for champagne.

Did you sleep well last night?

The first good night's sleep
I've had since the accident.

I'm glad.

Because it is our honeymoon,
and I'd hate for you to doze off.

You never know.
You might wake up to find me gone.

Lex, that's not funny.

I guess you had to be there.

You know what?

I am gonna have a drink.

What's going on?

I was so relieved when you forgave me
for stealing the blood...

that I failed to realize
no rational person would've done that.

I did it because I love you.

You still think I tried to kill you?

Why can't you see what's
right in front of your eyes?

It was your father's plane.
He's always been threatened by you.

You're right. You see, I haven't been able
to stop thinking about the accident.

And there is something that's been
right in front of my eyes.

If my father wanted me dead,
he wouldn't have failed.

You're experiencing residual delusions.
It's a common aftereffect of the malaria.

I'm afraid I've been delusional
a lot longer than three months.

But I think I have a pretty clear
picture of things now.

You had my father's pilot killed
and snuck your own on board.

You had the pilot touch down
on a small island and drop you off.

You paid him a prearranged sum to take
the plane up again with me still inside.

He flew out far enough
to cover your tracks...

and then he took a little skydive.

I'm guessing he had a pretty ugly surprise
when he tried to open his parachute.

Believe me, I prefer your version,
where I'm the gallant hero...

but that' s not giving you
enough credit, is it?

Lex, you're scaring me.

The area where we crashed
was unreachable...

given the amount of fuel we started with.
I checked all the islands in the vicinity.

You touched down on St. Croix
at 7:59 that night.

You know what the most
twisted part of all this is?

Is the reason you didn't get a bullet
in your head that day...

was because I really did
fall in love with you.

But don't worry.

I learn from my mistakes.

Go ahead.

I've become quite adept
at cheating death.

In fact, I have no doubt
that I'll rise from the ashes again.

I hate mysteries.

- Or did you forget that?
- You're gonna like this one.

This had better be worth it, Morgan.

We gotta get you out of here.

You set me up!

- You set me up!
- Lionel, I don't know what happened!

You set me up!

There was nobody in that truck!
There was nobody in that truck!

Mr. Luthor, I gotta get you out of here.

- Morgan.
- Let's go, Mr. Luthor!

I've gotta get you out of here!

Where is he? Where's Morgan?


Well done, Lex.

Well done.

That was a Machiavellian maneuver
worthy of a Luthor.

I appreciate the kudos, but I don't
know what you're talking about.

Come on, Lex, do you think I'd neglect
to put surveillance on my planes?

Poor Helen.

Should we be sending out
a search party for her?

I have someone on it.

But if Helen survived, I doubt anyone
will find her until she wants them to.

You know, Lex, I never imagined
that you would fall in love with Helen.

I'm sorry it happened, son,
but don't be too hard on yourself.

You know the sick thing?

Of all people, I knew you'd understand.

I do.

Survival is what matters in life.

I know that now.

If I was anybody's else son,
I would've died on that island.

All the tests you put me through...

made me a survivor.

If I can keep my pride in check,
I know there's more to learn from you.

I was hoping your offer still stands
to run LuthorCorp together.

I don't want you making
a hasty decision, Lex.

You've just been through
an incredibly traumatic ordeal.


I've learned to trust my instincts.

Good to have you back.


It won't seem right
calling any other place home.

It's not the place
that makes the home, Dad.

Does that mean you're coming with us?

I've kind of closed the door
on my time in Metropolis.

I called the police and told them
where the money is that I stole.

You can't run away from the problem
when the real problem is in your blood.


Clark, don't be so hard on yourself.

Hi, Lex.

Hey Lex, you missed
the garage sale.

But we have tons of these macrame
plant holders left.

Thanks, Clark, but I'm actually
doing my own share...

of purging around the mansion.

- You bought our farm?
- I put your names in the deed.

- We can't accept this.
- Accept nothing but my gratitude.

- Lex...
- After the plane went down...

I made my way onto
one of the broken wings.

This compass, your wedding present...

guided me to safe harbor.

The least I can do is help you
keep your farm.

We will find a way to pay you back.

I'm not worried about that, Mr. Kent.

If it's not too presumptuous...

I hope you'll just consider me
part of the family.

Hi, Lana.

Glad your parents are getting
a second chance.

Yeah, I think I'll be earning every cent
of my allowance this year.

So you're staying?

I think I wanna try to put all the stuff
that happened in Metropolis behind me.

Probably be a good idea if we put
a lot of things behind us.

I was just thinking that too.

Clark, I know there are things about you
that you try to shield me from...

but you don't have to protect
me anymore.

Whatever it is, I can handle it.

I really want to know you.

Lana, the way
you looked at me in Metropolis...

- You were disgusted.
- No, I was confused.

- You can't blame me for that.
- I don't blame you.

But I can't stand for you to ever
look at me that way again.

You weren't yourself.

Yes, I was.

Lana, I chose to let that part of me out,
and it's always gonna be there.

Trust me, you don't want to know me
the way you think you do.

Clark, that's my decision to make.

Lana, I'm sorry.

I wanted this so much.

All last year, I tried so hard
to be the right guy for you.

But I'm not.

This will never work.

Clark, you never had to try.
