In a nearby field, Deputy Ellis and a villager woman are just finishing up the gargantuan task of burying Clark. The woman worries that he was alive when they buried him. Ellis is pretty sure the burying finished him off. As they leave to join the ceremony, the ground begins to glow for some reason. The effects of the blue K wearing off? Glow worm mating rituals? Clark's hand suddenly thrusts up through the soil like he thinks Amy Irving has come to visit him.
Meanwhile, back at the impending roast, Cavanaugh leads his flock in a prayer. Lois gazes heavenward, or, rather, at the flaming hot space rocks about to rain down upon her. Just as Cavanaugh goes to flip the bell over, a rifle shot rings out. The crowd parts. Clark is standing there, readying another shot. "Get away from her!" Lois almost can't believe her eyes. Cavanaugh doesn't let a silly little thing like resurrection get in the way of the sacrifice, though. He dumps out the bucket of blue K. Clark, once again without powers, runs at normal speed toward Lois. He shields her body with his, letting the molten meteorite sear his back. He goes "AHHHHH!" and shakes his fist with the pain. His back is one big, bloody, open wound, but he gets to his feet and turns toward the crowd. The villagers are stunned. Deputy Ellis thinks it's a sign. The villagers back away and Clark's back instantly heals. Shouldn't there be meteorite in his skin still? Oh, well. Lois, speaking like she's auditioning for the part of Moses in The Ten Commandments, tells the villagers to move back. "You are not worthy to be in his presence!" Cavanaugh picks up his gun and aims at them. "Drop your weapon," Lois says, "and beg for forgiveness!" Girl, quit while you're ahead and get the hell out of there. But she goes on about how Clark is a "messenger sent from the heavens." "He will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger!" ["Does Clark Kent look like a bitch to you? Then why'd you try to bury him like a bitch?" - Z] Lois, starting to sound a little maniacal herself, threatens the village with Clark's heat-vision and super-breath. "Amen," Clark chimes in. "What do you say you speed us away from these children of the corn?" Lois asks. He scoops her up and zips them both away as the stunned villagers fall to their knees. Clark must be counting on nobody believing a bunch of crazy cultists who think they saw a man with godly powers.
