Smallville (2001–2011): Season 6, Episode 14 - Trespass - full transcript

After receiving a photo of herself dressing in her room, Lana realizes she has a stalker. After hiding out in Chloe's apartment above The Talon, Lana decides to hide out at another ...

- Lana, what's wrong?
- There's someone in the room.


It's all clear, sir.

Lex, over there.

Check the roof and initiate a full
perimeter sweep of the grounds, Brady.



what did this guy look like?

I don't know. I didn't see him.

But I could just sense that there was
someone in the room with me.

Can you close the window?


So you didn't actually see
or hear anyone?


With the press tracking our every move,
it's easy to get a little paranoid.

Maybe you're right.

Maybe I just imagined the whole thing.

Why not go downstairs?

Get some tea to calm your nerves.

♪ Smallville: "Trespass" ♪
Season 6 Episode 14

The paparazzi's at a fevered pitch
and Lex jets off on a business trip.

It's not like he left me unprotected.

Well that explains why Lex's robo-cops
are patrolling outside.

I can't believe he would leave
the country knowing...

that some demented stranger
broke into your bedroom.

I let him believe
that it was paparazzi-induced jitters.

You lied to Lex?

I couldn't show him the photo
that was sent to me.

Okay, first of all, you're staying here
until we catch Norman Bates.

And second...

I need to see that phone.

Lana, it's the only way we're gonna
be able to track this guy down.

I don't think Lex would've minded
a picture of you in your lingerie.

It's the chisel.

I think Lex stabbed Clark with it
after the engagement dinner.

So all of the secrecy is about
that which we do not speak of.

Chloe, I'm just...

I just want your help catching this guy.

I'll find out the explanation
about Clark on my own.

You're okay.

Come on.

- Clark.
- All right. Come on.

What are you still doing out here?

Well, I'm still doing my chores.

Well, you usually finish those
in about two minutes.

How is it that I drove to Metropolis,
attended the Children's Foundation dinner...

and made it back before you finished?

Because I'm doing them the normal way.

Ever since I landed on the paparazzi's list
of ex-boyfriends to hound...

I feel someone's looking over my
shoulder. Like I'm being watched.

I spent time trying to stay out of the
spotlight that pushing Lana into Lex's life...

put me right in the middle of it.

Well, it's gotta be a lot warmer
in that spotlight than it is outside.

I'm gonna go inside
and make some hot cocoa...

to thaw out the two of us
who can feel how cold it is.

Thank you, Mrs. Kent.

- Chloe, you look half frozen.
- Yeah.

Shouldn't you be next to a fire somewhere,
warming up next to Jimmy?

I'm on a mocha-mint run for Lana.

At least, that's what
I'm letting her believe.

She is hiding out at my apartment.

From what?

Somebody who has taken
to breaking, entering...

and making obligatory
creepy phone calls.

What's Lex doing about it?

She has some very compelling reasons
for keeping him out of the picture.

All right. I'll go back with you.
We can figure out...

No, Clark, she's fine. She's safe.

She's got Lex's security guards there.
Believe me.

No one's gonna go near her
without them knowing about it.

- There's gotta be something I can do.
- There is.

I traced the text message to a low-life
shutterbug named Louie Esposito.

Now, there's no permanent address,
but Jimmy really knows that world.

So can you call him
and ask him about it?

- Call Jimmy?
- Yeah.

Why don't you call him yourself?

I can't.

We sort of broke up.

Does this have anything
to do with me and keeping my secret?


And yes.

You can't let this happen, Chloe.
My lies have pushed Lana away, and now...

She's a lot closer than you think, Clark.

This is the picture that creep sent
on her cell phone.

Anything look familiar?

It's my dad's chisel.

- Did she see Lex stab me?
- She's doesn't know what she saw.

But, Clark, she's been orbiting
your secret for years and I think...

she may finally be coming in
for a landing.



Miss Lang. Right here.
There you go, there you go.

- Yeah.
- Right here.

- Miss Lang, what are you doing?
- There's someone in the building.

No, that's impossible. Okay?
My men are guarding the building.

Right here. Lana, Lana.

Then how do you explain that?

No. I live here, remember?

What's going on?

We got a serious problem here.


Hey, Clark. Chloe's not here.

I know. You're actually the one
I've been looking for.

I had a feeling this was coming.


Clark, despite our differences,
I think you're a decent guy.

Chloe obviously thinks
that you can walk on air...

so who am I to stand in the way?

Jimmy, hold on.

Look, but if you hurt her...

I don't care
how impossibly gigantic you are...

I will chop you down like a cherry tree.
And that ain't no lie.

It's nice to see that you'd risk ending up
in traction to protect Chloe's honor.

A girl like that is worth spending
the rest of my life in a body cast.

I feel the same the way.

As her friend, nothing more.

I swear.

Now that you know that for sure...

maybe there's something between
the two of you you'd like to reconsider.

Is that what you came here to tell me?

Well, that, and I need your help.

Lana's in trouble.

So, what's the sitch?

There's this paparazzi,
he's a little too into his job.

I need to track him down
before he causes more damage.

- You've worked with them before.
- It took a week to wash the slime.

All I have is a name.
Can you help me track him?

Anything for a friend of Chloe's.

Grasping a knife,
leaving us all to wonder...

has Lana Lang finally cracked
from the pressure of marrying Lex Luthor?

I turn on the news
and this is what I see?

My fianceé, scared
half out of her mind?

We have the situation
under control, Mr. Luthor.

Well, I'm sorry if I don't share
your optimistic assessment, Brady.

I'm cutting my trip short.
Get Lana to LuthorCorp Plaza.

If anyone you don't recognize gets within
a hundred yards of her, put a bullet in them.

Understood, sir.

Miss Lang, we have to go.

- Go where?
- LuthorCorp.

It's the only place
that I can guarantee your safety.

Don't you think whoever's behind this
will think that's the place I'd go?

- Yeah, that's the first place I would look.
- Miss Lang.

The only place I'll be safe
is the last one anyone would think I'd go.

Change of plans, get the car ready.

- But Mr. Luthor...
- Isn't here.

Unless you're kidnapping me
and holding me against my will...

I'm gonna go where I want.

And if you're interested
in my protection...

then you'll follow my orders now.

The room is secured, Miss Lang. The rest
of the team is posted out on the grounds.

Thank you.

I'm gonna be right outside your door
if you need anything.

I'm sorry.
I know this is a terrible intrusion.

If you're taking the Luthor name,
I guess...

armed guards and dodging the press
go with the gold ring.

Yeah, well, I'm hoping
it won't always be that way.

Well, in this case,
that's not such a bad thing.

Is there anything I can do for you?

No, thank you. I'm just gonna turn in.
Are you sure that Clark won't mind?

I think he'll survive a night on the couch.
I'll see you in the morning.

- Good night.
- Good night.

Who is this?

You can't hide from me.

Not even in Clark Kent's bedroom.
I know everything about you.

I don't care what you know
or how you know it.

There's an army between us and you're
never gonna get close enough to touch me.

I'm closer than you think, princess.


Why are you doing this?

Because you deserve it.

Hi, sweetheart. You're okay.

We're in the hospital now
and you're in good hands.

Mack called Dr. Langston.

That was quite
a fall you took, Miss Lang.

- All I care about is...
- The baby will be fine.

- Would you excuse us, please?
- Yes. I'll be outside.

The thing I'm concerned about
is your blood pressure...

which is higher
than I'm comfortable with.

So I'm gonna give you a sedative,
that'll bring it down.

- No.
- No, it, it won't hurt the baby. I promise.

- Thank you, nurse.
- You're welcome, sir.

- How is she?
- Just a little shaken.

I want her transferred to a secure room.

Her life's still in danger
until we catch this guy.

There might be a place
we can use in the old wing.

Your team could completely secure
that area.

Do it.

- You sure this is the place?
- According to my sources...

this is the rock that Esposito crawls under
at the end of a long day.

The parasite business
doesn't pay very well.

Hey, don't shed any wet ones
for Esposito.

At the top of his game, he's pulling
in a couple hundred K, easy.

Just for taking pictures of people
who wanna be left alone?

Who're you gonna blame more...

the guy snapping the pics
or the public that eats it up?

Just because there's a market
for it does not make it right.

Hey, check this out.

Here, try this one.

Looks like Esposito's definitely our guy.

Wait a minute.

Isn't that your barn?

You two must have
something special, C.K.

She's stalking you.

Mom. Hi.

I'm in Metropolis with Jimmy.

I'll be right there.

What's going on?

Esposito attacked Lana.
I need to get to the hospital.

Okay, well, we should grab the pics
because we might need them.



Lana, it's Chloe.

Hey, I heard what happened.
Are you okay?

Yeah, I'm fine. I just don't know
where anyone...


- What are you doing here?
- Your job.

Come on. Let's go.

Are you okay?

What happened?

He had a piece hidden on him.

I didn't have a choice.

It's over, Miss Lang.

Let's get you back home
where you belong.

Lex's plane's in the air now.

But he won't be back
until tomorrow.

With this snowstorm,
the plane was rerouted.

Thank you...

for everything.

If it wasn't for you...

I don't even wanna think
about what would've happened.

I hope I'm not crossing a line.

But honestly...

Lex never should have left you alone.

When did you start calling him
by his first name?

I'm sorry.

It's been a rough night.

Yeah. I know.

I don't think I've eaten
since this whole thing started.

Could you ask the kitchen
to bring something up for me?

I sent the staff
and the rest of the team home.

I didn't want them
to get caught in the storm.

- I know I should've asked you first, but I...
- No, no, it's okay.

It's actually very considerate.

Like something you'd do.

It's true.

You're not like all the other girls
that Lex paraded in and out of here.

Do you remember that line?

Been crossing a lot of lines lately.

All for you, princess.

I watch over you every day.

And you never even notice.

You took that picture
of me in my bedroom.

You're the one who's been calling.

You killed Brady.

I wasn't supposed to.

He figured out that it had to be
someone on Lex's security team.

I couldn't let him stop me
from saving you.

Saving me?

From who?

That photographer you killed?

Or was he just a part of all of this?

He had a part to play.

But your ex messed it up.

I wanted to show you...

how far I was willing to go.

You wanted to shoot him
in front of me, didn't you?

But Clark stopped him
before you could get there.

Lex is infecting you.

You're starting to talk like him...

think like him.
It makes me sick what he's doing to you.

But I can stop it.

I can give you your life back.

You're right.

I never wanted any of this.

I didn't know
what I was getting myself into.

And now, I can't get out.


Help me.

It's gonna be okay.

I promise.

I'm gonna save you.

Why did you do that?



Lana certainly is persistent.

I'll give her that.

Kind of like you were when you were
trying to figure out my secret.

It just makes me wonder...

if she had an ulterior motive
in hiding out in your bedroom tonight.

You think that's why
she went to my house?

I'd like to believe that she went there
because she felt safe there.

You don't spend this much time
with Lex without picking up tricks.

Look at these pictures Esposito
took of her sneaking around your barn.

Wait. What was that?

That one right there.

The Children's Foundation Benefit.

My mom was there last night.

In Metropolis.

So if Esposito took this...

Then he couldn't have taken
that picture of Lana in her bedroom.

Then who did?

There's nowhere to go.

It's too late to save you, Lana.

You were a good person once.

That's how I'll remember you
when you're gone.


What happened?

How did you...?

You're safe now.

That's all that matters.

No, it isn't.

You're here after...


Why are you still watching over me?

Maybe for the same reason
you've been watching me.

So it's funny how the main streets
from here to Smallville...

miraculously thawed out over night.

- You have anything to do with that?
- Nature is a mysterious creature.

Have you talked to Lana?

No, we danced to this tune before.

I'm not playing pickle
in the middle anymore, remember?

It's different. Lana's getting
too close to finding out my secret.

I mean, what am I supposed to do?

Clark, Lana risked her life
by not showing that photograph to Lex.

She did that to protect you.

I think she's proven
where her loyalty lies.

Yo, C.K.

Thanks for fixing me up with a sucker's
cocktail in Esposito's dark room.

I help you out, you leave me
holding the bag for a felony. That's great.

I'm sorry. After I found out
what happened to Lana...

I just wanna make sure she was okay.

Yeah, I can understand that urge.

How is she?

She's good, thanks to you.
You really came through.

Yeah, thanks.

You guys should catch up.

You know, he's not such a bad guy.


But he's no Jimmy Olsen.

Does that mean that you miss me?

I know.

Me too.

God, I'm a lucky man.


I can't tell you how powerless
I felt not being able to help you.

Everything's okay.

We're okay.

My security chief at LuthorCorp Plaza
said you never made it there.

What happened?

I went to the Kent farm instead.

Lex, you weren't here
and I had to trust my instincts.

You taught me that.

And those instincts led you to the place
your ex-boyfriend happens to live?

I went to the farm because
I thought it was the last place...

anyone would look for me.

It's the only reason.

Then that's good enough for me.


Above anything else, I trust you.

And I love you.

Looks like you're working out
some issues there.

Just doing a little honest work, Lex.

You should try it some time.

Why start now?

My life's perfect.

- What do you want?
- Nothing.

I just wanted to take a little sleigh ride
down memory lane.

Visit the scene of the crime.


here's where you took my fianceé
after kidnapping her.

Right before you tried to kill me.

I wasn't myself that night.

I'm sorry.


What? That you didn't finish the job?

You know, I'm still
a bit fuzzy on the details.

What with you trying to choke
the life out of me.

But what fascinates me...

is how after all that,
Lana could still feel safe coming here.

That was her choice.

- I had nothing to do with it.
- You never do.

That's all right.

You see, I understand the allure of trying
to unravel the mystery of Clark Kent.

I suffered from it once too,
when I thought you mattered.

Are we done?

Nothing left but the formalities.

Don't look so surprised, Clark.

Lana still cares about you, I know that.

And I know what it would mean to her,
having you there.

Is that really what you want, Lex?

What I want?

What I want is to make Lana happy
for the rest of her life.

And I want you to be there
on our wedding day...

to see what you lost.

Make sure you RSVP.

We need a head count for the reception.
