Seattle at night. Clark is still wandering around looking for Batista. Clark finds blood on the ground. He follows a trail. Batista is waiting for him, and confronts Clark. "Your blood must make you strong," he says creepily, "I shall taste it." Something whooshes by. Clark tries to punch Batista. The dude catches the punch. Clark, struggling, asks why Batista's doing this. "Everyone's gotta eat," he says. He lifts Clark. Batista suddenly shrieks and falls. Clark lands on his feet. He looks around. Clark sees a weird alien handprint burned into Batista's back. Clark has stepped on something. He moves his foot and sees an Oreo cookie with a bite taken out of it. Clark jogs to the shore. "Hey!" he calls. Someone is standing there. "It was you, wasn't it?" Clark asks. It's a big, bald creature. The creature's eyes glow brightly. Blink. The creature, wearing a cape, bends down, and then leaps to the sky, with the moon in the background. Clark watches. The creature soars away with a red trail. Martian Manhunter! Kick ass!
Commercials. Mark McGrath is back to annoy. And yes, Guitar Hero II is cool.
LuthorCorp. Chloe and Jimmy are in 33.1. He sees a bunch of wires in a huge blue cable, and says that whatever was there wasn't a typical cubicle farm: there's enough power here to light up Metropolis. Jimmy opines that it's just a matter of time before he can get to the bottom of it. Chloe says that he really manned up and got into the fight. "Still wish Clark was here to help?" asks Jimmy. Chloe holds his hands and says that Clark can't hold a candle to The Infuriator. If he did, it would be dirty. Lana walks up and asks if they found anything interesting. Chloe -- in a strange lacy top and with her hair up -- says that this feels a little strange. She asks whether Lana has ever considered that D-Fens was telling the truth. Lana asks if Chloe means that this was a secret lab. She says that she doesn't think Lex would have given them clearance if he had something to hide; she thinks the guy went through a lot of hoops to get his revenge if this place never really existed. Lana says that he was delusional, and that the meteor rock made him sick. She says that he spent over a year in Belle Reve. Chloe thinks that there's more to this story: "You don't know the Luthors like I do." Lana counters that Chloe doesn't know Lex the way she does; she's not going to take the word of a homicidal maniac over Lex's. Chloe says that Lana can't prove that 33.1 never existed. "And you can't prove that it did," Lana replies. Thus ends a perfectly crappy friendship. Lana walks away. Chloe rolls her eyes.
