Downstairs, Davis suddenly feels some weird darkness come over him and has to stop to breathe. The heavy strings of, "Oh shit, it's a monster!" play. Oh, shit, I think it's a monster!
We see black shoes walking across a field, a bloody shovel trailing behind. A man is walking to a blue SUV with the license plate "DLP 495." He opens the back. Inside goes the shovel. The man gets into the vehicle. The rosary belonging to Davis is hanging from the rearview mirror. In that mirror, we see Davis grab it and kiss it. He is the man! "Forgive me," he says. He drops the rosary and pulls back the hood he's wearing. His phone rings. He answers it as he turns on the headlights. Tess, in a long coat, is standing in front of the vehicle, holding a phone. "I forget," she says, "what's the prayer for dismembering a body?" Ah, you're thinking of Prayer to Buffalo Bill. [I think that's for skinning people. - Z] Davis's eyes widen. Tess lifts her hand. She's holding a very fake-looking metal tube with a button trigger on the top. It's even got a red stripe around it. She pushes the button with her thumb. We see Davis in the vehicle flinch just before it blows up around him. We see several big explosions. Tess turns her head away. Everything is in flames. She stares at the wreckage triumphantly and not at all singed.
Commercials. Bedtime Stories on DVD, that one Adam Sandler movie that really didn't work out for anybody.
Talon, nighttime. Chloe, on her laptop, is giving Clark a crime research assist. She finds there were a dozen people missing in Metropolis in just the last month. Clark says you'd think that was newsworthy. Chloe complains, just like anyone who has left a newspaper, that newsworthiness has nothing to do with what's on the front page. I'm confused. Are they saying The Daily Planet is a crappy newspaper now? I'm never sure what's supposed to be true about that on this show. Clark stares at Chloe as she sits facing away from him. She can sense it. She says she hopes Clark has the safety on his heat vision cocked. Clark goes, "Whu?" Chloe complains that Clark's been staring at her. He says she and Davis have been spending a lot of time together. He's sure she won't want to talk about it. Chloe assures him she loves trudging through stagnant water. Clark says she's moving on kind of fast, and that he doesn't know what she sees in the guy. Look at him! He's FOINE! Chloe says it was just dinner. She says he's kind, supportive and a strong shoulder to lean on, something she really needs right now. She implies Clark hasn't noticed this need. Clark says he has a bad feeling about the guy. Chloe chastises Clark for his "'Meet me out in the back for a duel' mentality." Clark says the guy disappears all the time, is full of secrets and doesn't even have a record of his childhood. Chloe says that sounds familiar. Clark says he doesn't collect gruesome crime photos in his locker and doesn't always show up as the first EMT at murder crime scenes. Chloe frowns. She just saw on her screen that a vehicle was found burned outside Smallville, and it had plates belonging to Davis. Perhaps they should investigate.
