We cut back to Davis in the present. "There's a way," he whispers to himself. Tess is suddenly standing nearby. He asks if she thinks she can keep him there. Tess acknowledges that nothing can restrain him. Davis asks what she'll do. She says she's been thinking about that. "What do you do when you find Judas in your midst?" she says. Hey, lady, fuck you! She asks whom Christ would have been if Judas hadn't betrayed him. She says we might have only remembered him as a teacher roaming the desert. Wow, Davis, Tess sure has gone bonkers, huh? Davis says he doesn't get it. Tess elaborates: Jesus would never have come back from the dead to face his greatest challenge: saving humankind. "There is a savior among us. You are here to betray him," she says. Davis says he hasn't betrayed anyone. Tess, walking past Davis and talking away from him, says that if Davis doesn't do his part, the savior won't have a challenge to overcome. I think keeping things remotely interesting in a ninth season will be challenge enough. She says the savior has to triumph over the world's destroyer. Davis has had enough of this bullshit, and I don't blame him. He grabs Tess roughly and turns her around. "What savior? What are you talking about?" he says. Tess, breathing raggedly, says Clark's name. She tells him that's why they don't get along; they're destined to kill each other. It all makes sense now! I thought he was just a douche! There's a strange rattling sound. Tess, scared, backs away. Davis's eyes turn red. He grunts. He hits Tess across the face and she slides back across the floor, all the way down the hall, crashing into a table and chair. The laws of physics are going to write an angry letter to the show for the way they were inaccurately portrayed just then.
Daily Planet. Clark is right about something and gets to be a dick about it for a whole scene. He follows Chloe into the newsroom. She's rattled as he asks why she forgot to mention that Davis blacks out regularly. Like Lois doesn't black out when she's been drinking? Chloe says she figured Davis had low blood sugar or something. "He told you he was hiding something dark inside, Chloe! That didn't set off any alarms for you?" Chloe goes right for the coffee pot. Chloe thought it meant moody or bi-polar, not "serial killer." Clark brings up all the times he doubted Davis. "I know!" Chloe shouts, "I was in denial!" She didn't think it was this bad. Clark says it's worse. Chloe, teary, says she can't believe it. Clark brings up the fact that Jimmy tried to warn them. Nice one, Clark. Clark calms down. He says he looked into some of the deaths. The victims weren't exactly Metropolis's finest, he says. There were abusers and robbers. Well, thank goodness. Clark doesn't think Davis is stupid enough to leave an SUV near a field full of evidence. He thinks someone took Davis. Chloe says that when she was researching Davis, his county records had already been checked out by someone. She says it might be time to pay a visit to "The widow of LuthorCorp." Wouldn't that have been Lana?
