Metropolis General. Dead Zone lies in a hospital bed. We see a black glove touch the bottom of the bed. Dead Zone wakes up. "Who are you?" he asks. It's Chloe. She says she thought he'd like a visitor. She calls him by his real name: Wilson. He asks how she knows him. Chloe says she was at Black Creek and knows all about his ability. She asks how much of the story he got from the man he touched the other night, the one who saved Lois. "Let's just say he shouldn't have touched me," Dead Zone says. Uh oh. Wrong answer. He says guys like Clark belong in places like Black Creek. He asks why Chloe was there. "You don't seem so special," he says. Chloe takes off her gloves as she explains that the human mind is a sophisticated computer. She says if you download too much information, it crashes. And all the data is lost. "What's that supposed to mean?" he asks. "Here. Let me show you," she says. She grabs his wrist. He grunts and struggles as scary music plays. Chloe just stares at him. His eyes flash computer code. Suddenly they flash and he goes dead and limp. Chloe walks out of the room and walks out in slow motion. There's an alarm as doctors and nurses rush into the room. They don't notice Chloe walking away. She seems to come to her senses as she walks away in slow motion. We go to black as suddenly evil Chloe-Braniac keeps walking. Wow! That was almost worth the rest of the lackluster episode.
Nest week: Kara is back and so is The Phantom Zone, it seems.
