The caves. Clark does a lot of nothing.
Lex's. Lex tells Papa that if he leaves Lana alone, he'll get something he desperately needs. Papa snarks that there's very little he needs in life. "What good is a key if you don't know where the lock is?" Lex asks. Papa says that's wise, but asks how that applies to him. Lex says that Papa has one of the elements, but not the knowledge of where it belongs. He offers to take Papa Luthor there right now. Papa denies that he has the stone.
Caves again. Clark puts the bloody element on the table next to the piece that's already there. Everything glows.
Papa Luthor is suddenly struck by space science. Something element-shaped in his jacket pocket shines through. It flashes white and Papa falls to the floor. Science! Papa Luthor convulses on the floor. Lex comes over. He reaches into Papa's pocket and is struck as well. Lex flies across the room and hits a back wall. He just got kicked in the chest by Charlie Murphy!
Caves. The element slots all glow, even the one with the missing stone.
Lex's. Lex wakes up. Pained, he walks over to Papa. Security comes in: "Mr. Luthor? What happened?" Papa Luthor lies there, eyes wide open, not moving. I really thought he was dead. Lex demands that the guard take Papa Luthor upstairs. But, but... "Do it!" Lex yells. He looks down at comatose Papa Luthor. "Can you hear me, Dad?" Lex asks. "Before you leave this earth I want you to know...you did create the son you always wanted." The camera spins around as the guards carry Papa Luthor roughly out of the room. Percussive music plays. The blue element on the floor of Lex's room glows blue.
In the caves, Clark is struck by a piercing sound. He holds his ears.
Lex's. Lex goes to the element. He stares at it as it smokes, but stops glowing.
Commercials. Ooh, Disney resort. Sign me up!
Stately Luthor Manor. The artifact, now sitting in Lex's safe, glows blue again. Clark superzips into Lex's lair and holds his ears. He's tracked down the high-pitched sound. Lex grabs one of the shelves and pulls the safe entrance from there. Inside, a bunch of artifacts from China start glowing green. Clark gets nauseated and falls on the floor. Nice one.
Countdown. Five minutes. Where's Kiefer when you need him?
Kent home. Bo and MamaKent are being held hostage by a shotgun-toting Jason. Bo asks him to let MamaKent go. Jason, projecting a bit, says that a mother always knows a son's deep, dark secrets. God, I hope that's not true. Jason asks where Clark keeps the stones. MamaKent asks what Clark would be doing with ancient stones. Hey, he didn't say they were ancient, lady! MamaKent is trying to tie Bo up, but Jason gets frustrated with her progress and shoos her away. Jason says that when he ran into Clark in Shanghai (it says "Beijing" in the closed captioning), he decided to investigate. He pushes MamaKent around as says he's learned that Clark's name pops up a lot in connection to weirdness. He yells at MamaKent to sit down, and pushes her roughly again. MamaKent she says she doesn't know what he's talking about, and Jason cocks his shotgun at her. Jason asks about Clark's connection to Margot Kidder. "I don't know! I don't know!" MamaKent gasps. Bo bellows that none of that makes any difference now. Jason monologues that his mom told him the Luthors would lead them to the stones, but "it was the farm boy." He says that Clark has no record of ever being born. Bo yells that the meteors are coming. MamaKent tells Jason he has to find his mother and get her to safety. Jason falls apart: "Don't you think I know that!? I can't find her anywhere!' Jason says that when he finds her, he'll be able to give her the thing she's been searching for all these years. A decent part in a good movie? Jason shoots at the ceiling. He spins on MamaKent, and screams: "Now tell me where the stones are!"
