public PageReference done() {
    ListOne = oneList[0] ;
    ListTwo = twoList[0];
    return null;

} //---------------------------VF Lookup page PageTwo--------------------- Item One Item One


Create a function in your page something like:

function reloadAndClose(){
    setTimeout(function(){window.opener.location.reload(true);}, 2000);
    setTimeout(function(){window.close();}, 2100);

parameter (true) you send to reload method means:
true - Reloads the current page from the server.
You need to define this parameter because default is false.

Then call this function onComplete of your action which is on the second page.
