Clark sits down in his loft to read about the prophecy. Jeremiah shows up, and apparently gaining powers robbed him of the ability to button up his shirt. He also has the knife in some sort of sheath on a bandolier. My husband would not shut up for the remainder of the episode about how stupid it is to carry a knife in that thing, because it's apparently meant for swords and such. He's kind of a geek. In a good way. Anyway, Jeremiah says he heard that Willowbrook now believes that he's the true Naman, and that before he kills Ziget, he has to kill Clark for being a false prophet. Clark whips out a lead-lined box containing green Kryptonite and holds it out like a shield. Clark struggles to fight the effects of the Kryptonite, but Jeremiah just picks it up in his hand, clearly unaffected. Clark's like, "Oh, shit." Jeremiah tosses the Kryptonite away, and they start fighting. Jeremiah plunges the knife into Clark's gut, and twists it. He pulls the knife out, and Clark falls to the ground. Jeremiah weirdly shows Clark the bloody knife, and then puts it back into its sheath. Is one of the powers that the knife bestows the power to be a drama queen? Jeremiah walks out of the barn, leaving Clark for dead. I hope Clark doesn't die!
Clark stumbles into the house, and tries to reach the phone, but collapses before he can call anyone.
Meanwhile, Papa Luthor rides somewhere in the back of his limo. The limo pulls off the road, and Papa Luthor asks Danny the Driver why they've stopped. The driver gets out of the car and...hey, that's not Danny! That's Jeremiah! And he's cleaned off the knife!
At the school, Chloe is leaving the Torch office, and she spots Pete stuffing something into his locker. She asks what he's doing there so late. Pete lies that he was going into the Torch office to work on his term paper. These students must be assigned a lot of term papers for them constantly to be used as a convenient excuse. Not that we've seen anyone actually in a classroom lately. Chloe lets Pete into the offices, and then says that she saw Pete's mom at the courthouse, and heard that he's up for a Federal judge position. Pete downplays it, but Chloe thinks that she's a shoo-in. Pete interrupts by yelling angrily, "You don't stop until you get your scoop, do you?" Chloe's face falls and she says that she was just trying to show some interest in Pete's life. Maybe if you were really interested, you'd notice that Pete is clearly living at the school, Chloe? Pete complains that not everything is public domain, and now he understands why Clark gets so mad when Chloe noses around in his life. Chloe looks hurt, but she gives Pete the keys to the office before she walks away. Pete flaps his hands like he's thinking of apologizing, but remains silent.
