Daily Planet. This reminds me that Lois isn't in this episode, and yay for that. A siren blares in the distance. A worker in a suit (could it be a reporter?) is thrown against the wall and tumbles down some stairs. The thrower is Chloiac, still in the bloody dress, still looking poised for battle. She whooshes downstairs, grabs some cables out of a power cabinet, then opens up a server and sticks her hand on it. She arches her back in pleasure as the data courses through her. A screen behind her shows three green balls coursing with energy. All the screens get that symbol. A woman comes up to a worker who is hypnotized by the screen and she becomes entranced, too. Chloiac mugs for the camera, making all kinds of sinful, evil faces.
At Isis, Lana has detected a power surge, conveniently right around the corner at the newspaper. "That makes sense. It is the hub of information," Clark says. Lana's screen suddenly cuts to the green orbs. Balls! Lana goes blank. Clark pulls her around and tries to get her out of her daze. Yep. Zombie Lana is back. Lana just stares straight ahead. Clark is frustrated. But not as worried as last time.
Daily Planet. Chloiac is still draining information from the database, but is interrupted by Imra, who is trying to send a psychic message. She has two fingers on her forehead and it just looks really, really silly. Chloiac blasts her with some sort of green information ray. Suck my science! Imra lies on the floor holding her ear. "Nice try, telepath," Chloiac says. "Your sadism's historic where I come from!" Imra says. Oh my goodness, please shut up, Imra. She says Brainiac's defeat is also historic. Chloiac says history's about to get a re-write. She's suddenly blasted across the room and through a window by a giant, tubular blast of energy. We see Rokk and Garth having pulled it off together. "Nice sync-up!" Garth says. "For once," Rokk says. Garth says the electromagnetism will crash any computer. Imra has a headache. The three of them push ahead to finish the deed. Imra touches Chloiac's forehead. She's unconscious. Imra picks up low-level brain activity and says they don't have much time. Rokk figures out that Brainiac was trying to suck every last byte of human knowledge, one mind at a time. So... I guess you should fix that.
