This tale takes place after the events of “REAP”, and though reading Reap might make certain references clearer, you can probably pick up the thread without having to. Lex gets hit with the reprocussions of the destruction of project Ares and the resulting Government involvement as well as being prime suspect in Lana’s death. Clark isn’t dealing with any of it well, with no clues to the real murderer and eventually goes to the only person who isn’t investigating Lex for answers – – Lex. Only to find out that Lex has a problem of his own that he isn’t even aware of.
Pairings: Clark X Lex
