    Whoa! So this is the episode where that "mysterious stone storyline" is advanced a bit. And who wouldn't enjoy an episode mainly taking place in China that is a tribute to the beloved Christopher Reeve, shows that violent and evil side of Lana (Isabelle), and has some great action scenes!

    So Clark gets the octagonaly key back- int-ter-est-ing, very interesting...
    Clark uses it immediately, and finds out that he had better stop ignoring his destiny. The stones werre meant for him, and if Clark doesn't get his hands on all three of them soon, the greed of others (in the search for the stones) will lead them to war, famine, and the Earth's ultimate destruction! Yikes!
    (Mr. and Mrs. Kent, give your son a break, and let him decide if he wants to accept his destiny already, will you?)

    Jason (to Lana): "Goodnight!"
    Lana: "Goodnight?"

    Yes, this is how Lana gets her first hint that Jason is in China, and has been lying to her about everything under the sun. When Clark comes in to Lana's apartment over the Talon and asks her if she's going somewhere, and Lana informs Clark of her imaculate tattoo, the fact that she's been harboring a 17th Century witch, and that she's going to China, Clark decides to just get up and go with her. Lucky for them, Luthorcorp jets provide an apparently free round trip where they don't even need luggage for the extremely short trip (regardless of the fact that it's three time zones away).

    So, when Clark and Lana arrive at China, and we viewers find out that Jason and Lex are being tortured for information meanwhile, Clark finds something in the temple within seconds that none of the people who have searched for hundreds of years could find. Lana is taken hostage instead of killed because, luckily for her, they notice her tattoo that is identical to the symbol for water. Clark is stopped abruptly by kryptonite, which makes Clark and Martha wonder if the stones are really meant for Clark. Either way, after Isabelle possesses Lana's body and (in a kung-fu style) fights Clark, Jason ends up with the stone, and only Lana and Jason know it. Clark returns to college applications and the cave, to ponder over Dr. Virgil Swan's words ("Kal-El, you must write your own destiny.")
