|Starting out right away, you'll noticed "LL" entering the room with
Lex and then continuing her way up to the walk, photographers clicking
away and news paper writers asking questions. Clark instantly perks up
when he hears the name "LL" and continues to watch her.
In the dressing room, Lana sets her next run way girl with a dress to
model, and no sooner does the girl leave, two more enter. Not wanting to
model, but for Lana's necklace--they take Lana and put her into a
elevator, rip off her necklace and then push her through the elevator
window. She goes down..down..down until Superman swoops up, catches her
and then proceeds to stop the women in the elevator.
After they land, Lana says that she was "hoping to see you, Clark".
Superman's taken a-back, but Lana later goes on to reveal she knew it
was him all along, what with Superman appearing in Metropolis as soon as
Clark (and his amazing powers) leaves Smallville. Lex comes down the
walkway, asking if shes all right and Superman flys away.
The story on this one was pretty interesting, with Lana playing the
snoop after Clark tells her that there's some weapons that Lex is
selling to terrorists that he has in a great big "stockpile" somewhere.
After more snooping, searching, and Lana getting caught, they arrive in
the lead factory, where Lana is presumably going to meet her death.
Superman busts through the wall and after a small shuffle with the
terrorist, Superman wades through the liquid lead that's threatening
Lana's life (who, by this point is standing on a desk, with liquid lead
filling up the room around her), and they both zoom out of there.
In the end, this episode was fairly interesting, definitely worth a
second watch, but nothing earth shattering--still a fun episode to
watch, especially with the whole Lana/Clark thing going on.
