Summary: Lex overhears a discussion between Clark and Jonathon about telling the truth.

Tells.

Lex paused, hearing Jonathon’s concerned voice.

“Clark, you can’t do this.”

“I have to try, Dad.”

“Jor El won’t let you…”

“He can’t stop us.”

“Clark, don’t put yourself through this. Let me help.”

“No, I want it to come from me.”

“Ready to try again?” Jonathon sounded resigned

“Yeah… Lex, you know that I’ve always---- Aieeeeeegh.”

As Clark broke off screaming, a solid thud struck the loft’s floor. Running up the stairs, Lex gaped at Clark— writhing as he clutched the lead St. George box to him. It had opened just enough for Lex to see his engagement ring.
