Smallville s04e10 Episode Script

Scare

Lana? I was hoping that you're up.
Is everything all right? It's about Jason.
I think I made a horrible mistake.
Jason? Lana I'm not sure I'm the one you should be talking to about this.
Actually I think that you're exactly who I should be talking to.
I was thinking about it The way we met the way he followed me here the way he got a job in my school.
I think that everything that Jason has told me has been a lie.
I'm starting to wonder if there is another reason why he came to Smallville besides me.
Like what? I don't know.
It is really starting to scare me.
Don't worry Lana.
I'd never let anything happen you.
I know.
And this means one thing very clear.
I never should have given up on it.
I can't lie to myself as much as I want.
But I've always been in love with you.
I knew I couldn' trust you Clark.
Jason no! Haven't you ever heard already? Jason.
Clark can't protect you from me.
Nobody can.
Jason! Someone call an ambulance! Jason? Jason can you hear me? Smallville - Saison 4 - Episode 10 "Scare" Hey! How is he doing? Doctors don't know.
His heart's beating a mile a minute and they can't get his blood pressure down.
It's a little odd for someone who's inconscious ,isn't it? They said he's in some sort of a panis mood.
Like he's having a severe nightmare.
What happened? He ,uh, came by the Talon to pick me up for lunch and I ran upstairs to grab a jacket.
And And I heard a crash,that's it.
He's been,he's been perfectly healthy.
But the doctors said that they can't get his heart very down then he could have a heart attack.
They must have some idea who cause this.
I wish I could help them.
But he was just studying home before he came to the apartment.
First time I saw him he was lying on the Talon floor.
Let us know if there is anything we can do to help,ok.
They need his assurance card.
It's in my apartment could you please go get it for me.
I don't want to leave his side.
Yeah,ok.
Clark I don't mean ti go all Dr Phil on you but don't you think you should admit their relationship? Come on Chloe I passed that.
Yeah I should have known by that crippling stare on your face ever since you walked in the apartment.
I just could use some more time to ease into it.
Clark you're in love with her.
It's not something you just ease out of.
??? serious thing.
Yeah but we all keep secrets for our own reason.
I don't think I have to tell you that.
I don't think go on to Jason's personal things I'll take my chance on the jury for this one.
Oh! Jason had a meeting at Luthorcorp this morning.
Why didn't Lana say something? Maybe she didn't know.
This place seems dead.
Yeah My dad used to work here overtime shift on saturdays.
He's got to be full by now.
Where do you think everybody is? I don't know.
While you're talking to Lex,I'm gonna get myself a little backstage tour.
Clark.
How the hell did you get in here? Yeah,the gate was opened.
Your security seems a little M.
I.
A there.
That's obvious but this is a restricted area.
This is gonna take a second.
I need someone to escort a guest down.
Clark I'm sorry but I just came from Metropolis, I got a lot to do.
Just now.
I thought you had a meeting with Jason this morning.
Not with me.
He was meeting with my hrd department.
Did he came for a job? Just some leads.
I felt guilty from getting Jason fire from the school.
He didn't want Lana to know about it I'm surprised he told you.
He didn't.
Jason's lying inconscious at the hospital.
Some source of neurological stress.
.
Do they know what happened? No.
But you and hr guy might have been the last persons he talk to.
Look I'm tracking down but,Clark,they could be a lot of reasons for Jason's condition.
It could also be a lot of reason why this place is desert at half way through saturday shift.
I'll call a specialist from Metropolis to take a look at him.
Assure Lana I'm doing everything I can for him.
I've been waiting for you,Chloe.
Mum? You can't escape this,Chloé.
None other Nooo! Nooo! Noo! How are the safety precautions? How the hell does a lab explode? When you're dealing with meteor rocks, it's very difficult to predict how our chemicals will react.
Mr Luthor we're doing everything we can after the alarm sounded we scelled the room.
All affected personel have been quarantined then we're trying to fix the damaged pipes.
You mean the bactery is still here.
Only in that room.
Once the situation is under control I want the project dismanteled.
But,Mr Luthor Your father negociated this contractwith the military and we stand to make a lot we can ever market the compound.
And exactly what is the market? For toxins that evoque a person's worth nightmare before they fall inconscious,Dr Ford? I think it's good I mean we could disable the enemy without even using violence.
We have statistics Your statistics are lying in those beds.
My employees are.
I'm afraid they're not the only ones.
What do you mean? Someone who was visiting the plant this morning is at the hospital right now with the sames symptoms.
Is it contagious? Oh no sir,no sirI mean the bactery can't be transmitted from one person to another.
It has to be inhaled directly.
And there's no need to call the CDC and panic the entire town.
Where are you with the antidot? This would clarify when it reaches 1000° Kelvin and then we can test it.
What's the E.
T.
A? Another five hours.
Eight other people have just come down to condition that Jason and Chloe have.
The doctors haven't found anything in common? Did you say that Jason and Chloe were both at Luthorcorp today? Yeah,but half the victims in the hospital weren't.
Whatever this is seems to strike completely random.
There's no way to tell who's gonna be next.
That sounds contagious in the air or the water.
Maybe that show up some environmental report.
- Lana? - Come on in.
Sorry to show up like that I just don' t know where else to go.
Clark told us about Jason.
Has something happened? One of the other infected people's just died.
Lana,do the doctors have any idea of what's going on? Just that a person's body can only sustain a level of panic for so long before their heart out.
I can't just stay in the hospital anymore just watching Chloe and Jason die.
I want to help.
I hope I didn't separate you from your flock.
I understand your cynicism but I assure you I trully am a changed man.
Mmhh,or just a smart one.
Yeah,ever since you proclaimed this sudden converge to our residence St Paul.
There's hasn't been single attempt on your life.
I want only to behave help to others.
What is the value of my simple life? Unless I used at as an example to sheppard fellow sinners.
To lead them away from the illure of hateness and mistrust and greed.
To follow a better way.
Hum hum.
Well I'm afraid you're gonna have to change congregation.
What do you mean? The appel court overturned your conviction.
Returned? My appeal doesn't come here from month, it's not possible.
You could be surprised what's possible in this judicial system.
You know I've done everything to work this system.
I had the best lawyers in the world, I try to pay off everyone from the bailiff to the president of the unites states and I was told categorickly I will never gonna see life outside these walls again.
You do not want to be telling me things of this nature.
Yes I do.
I'm guilty.
Not for the crime I've been in prison for but so many others crimes who should have led me in here years ago.
This is where I belong.
It's where I can do the must good.
You want to stay in prison? Yes I do I've found my my mission in life.
Contrary to your deluted point of view, this is not the Ritz Carlton where you can check in and check out at your pleasure.
Somebody did you a favor by getting out of this place.
I'd say be grateful.
But who?Who could do that? Obviously someone more powerful than you.
As soon as this paperwork is finished,you're a free man.
We know that Jason was in town by 9 o'clock.
According to the hourly satellite images we had clear skys on morning.
Hourly?Can we get it a bit more specific than that? I try.
You know,I just don't understand why Jason didn't tell me why he had a meeting at Luthorcorp.
It might have been a blow to his pride,accepting Lex's offer.
Maybe that's probably what it's been about.
I feel getting this feeling lately that there's something he hasn't been telling me.
Maybe he thought you'd seem differently if you've found out.
Do you really think that I'm not shallow,Clark? He might take a little while to get to know youas well as I do.
Look at that.
It's like this cloud came out to nowhere.
And then it's completely gone 5 minutes later.
It covered 2 miles before it dissipated.
Why would a cloud just appear like that? It's not a cloud.
Maybe it's pollution or smoke or something.
That's Cabby Line and Chloe's house is right in the middle of it.
So it's Luthorcorp.
Mum Dad J ason Lana Lana They're all going to live you.
And there is nothing you can do about it.
Lana? - I can't hold him.
Get over here.
- Yes sir.
I got him,I got him Mr Luthor we have never tested this antidot I urge you to try one of our lab animal first.
One of my employees is about to die.
Do you see another options for us right now? No sir I don't.
But please remember this is like a flu inoculation it contains traces of the infectious element.
Is that tour way I told me the patient 's gonna be a worse before he gets better.
Assuming it works.
Mr Luthor,you can't go in here.
We must keep the exposure to the toxin to a minimum.
I'm responsible for this plant and everyone who works here.
I'm going with you.
Dr Scailing,I understand you're treating the patient Jason Teague? Lex,I got my hands full right now.
We're watching Mr Teague along with all the others in this condition.
The others? Are you telling me all these people have the same symptoms? Unfortunately.
We have no idea what we're dealing with.
It's a synthetic toxin.
A pressure tank exploded this morning at my plant.
We thought we had it contained but the toxin released must have escaped in the atmosphere.
It's possible all these peole were exposed at this time.
And you're just telling me this now? I have to call the center of disease control.
I don't know how much they can do but there's an antidot on my project manager is modifying as we speak.
How close is it? First trial wasn't a success but I assure you we had a situation under contol.
It's too late for that.
I need a doctorI need a doctor! Did you know about this what I told you early today? Clark, other than Jason I had no idea anyone outside of Luthorcorp was exposed.
You have to believe me.
What is this stuff? All make sense.
Lana help me.
The meteor shower.
you came the same day.
How could I be so stupid? The meteor shower is the reason I'm here.
I'm from a planet called Krypton.
Lana I wanted to tell it you.
I didn't want you to except me.
You're not even human.
Please that stuff makes me sick.
My parents are gone because of you.
I am never gonna see them again.
You killed my parents.
Mum Clark? I need to find my parents,where are they? They haven't been admitted.
Clark you're the first patient to come out this,I think you'd better sit down.
- No,I feel fine.
- Clark Dad? Mum? Mum? Lex! I keep you up.
- You're running at the time - How did you get pass security? It's ok.
I don't understand I've let you in the hospital.
What happened? My parents are in there now.
C lark Lana,Chloe,Jason they're all gonna die.
You don't do something.
What do you suggest I do? Use me.
I want you to use me.
We got came on this panic state maybe there's something in me that can help.
I'll give you whatever samples you need.
Look,even if your immune system could offer us some sort of inside ,I don't know this is gonna test months,years to analize,no,no He's right,Clark.
We have a new antidot that we could test in a few hours.
There's no time.
The antidot needs to be heated to 1000° Kelvin until it clears otherwise it's useless.
This time we're gonna test it first.
Peole's lives are in stake.
We're running at the time.
Look at them,Mr Luthor.
Look at them.
Are you gonna point the finger and decide which one of them is gonna take the potencially lethal injection.
Whoever it is it could be killing him.
Oh Mr Luthor,no! - Clark? - Oh God,it worked! I'm gonna get the antidot to the hospital.
Lex,you're gonna be ok.
I shouldn't know.
Clark Some bad in you,son? No,it just takes a few days before I can walk into that room and not get a flash of the two of you inconscious on the floor.
Thanks for cleaning everything up.
And somebody,somebody did a number on that lamp back there.
You must have been some nightmare.
We woke up to find it and it almost come true.
Clark you went right into the Lex's office and almost gave up your secret.
Who knows what they would have done to you? I didn't see other choice.
It's funny because lately I've been thinking I've gotten closer of being able to tell someone the truth about me.
Now I'm convinced more than ever than I can't tell it anymore, especially at Lana.
I know how much it would mean to you to be able to share your secret with her.
As far apart as we've grown I think about it everyday.
I hope our own fears haven't gotten in your way.
I would hate for you to look back and regret not telling the people closest to you.
I mean there is a chance Lana will understand.
There is.
Well if she didn't? Clark,look,I'm not sure that it's Lana, but I am sure that someday there will be someone you can tell it.
Egg Fu Yang to the rescue.
So.
.
if I'd waited around for the peking duck,you'd have what? been gone? No I would have been here, trying to figure out what to say.
II don't understand.
Is this because of your mum? You've been different ever since I met her.
I've been different ever since I came to Smallville.
Six months ago,I would have never gone to someone like Lex and grabeled for a job than I only don't want.
The worst part this is I was too embarassed to tell you about it.
Since when have you ever been embarassed around me? Exactly.
I don't like this person I'm becoming,Lana and I don't want to wait around for you to reserve as much as I reserve myself so It's not why you're leaving.
The one thing I learned from my relationship with Clark is when someone isn't being honest with me.
Jason just tell me the truth.
Be careful.
I can't get a statement from Luthorcorp.
I mean,a huge chemical explosion causes everybody to live their worst nightmares.
What is that? And there's no sign of a lawsuit.
I mean it's just like this whole thing is just being completely forgotten about.
What?What? What? I've seen you worked up before but this is more than empty,even for you.
I guess it's just these things are really.
I found my mum,Clark.
Wow,that'sChloe, that's great.
Yeah I mean I put my fillers out for years and something 3 months ago finally came through so And it turns out she's hum she's not exactly M.
I.
A so to speak.
She's in a mental institution.
I'm sorry.
- ??? - Listen Hey If there's one thing that I've learned it's that you're not destined to following your parents footsteps,all right? Yeah thanks.
So,popular question of the day What is Clark Kent's worst nightmare? When I woke up everyone that I knew was gone.
I was completely alone.
I wish I could say that we're always be there for you but Somehow I get the feeling,I mean,I'd be a promise I can't keep.
You will the only one that came out of it.
Clark, I don't think it's because you take a vitamin.
Chloe Look,you know what, you don't have to tell me.
i know that I gave you my word that I was going to stop all this prime but These last few months I really got a test of what was like to keep my mum' secret.
And I've never felt more alone.
It's weird when people think they're so closed to you but they have no idea what you're really going to.
Yeah.
I'd hate to live my own life like this.
But after facing up,it's amazing how quickly that feeling of loneliness disappears.
I mean if you can tell your best friend who can you tell? Right Clark?
