Papa Luthor shows up at the Kent Barn and tells Clark that he also wants to help the Kiwatche people. Clark tells him to stop "pillaging their cave." Dirty! Papa Luthor tells Clark to get the Kiwatche to return the stolen artifact. Clark warns Papa Luthor that the knife is dangerous. Papa Luthor says he thinks the knife is valuable in more ways than one. It could be a hat! Or a brooch! Papa Luthor theorizes that the knife was created from the same metal as the octagonal key, and they can use the knife to create a duplicate key. Where? The hardware store? Clark says he thought the original key was still in the cave wall, and Papa Luthor says that his researchers haven't been able to find it. Hmm, I wonder why not. Papa Luthor says they need to cut the crap, because he knows that Clark wants to unlock the secrets of the cave (dirty!) as much as anyone. Clark says that the Kiwatche don't take orders from him. Papa Luthor says that he knows both he and the Kiwatche think that Clark is "a very [deep breath] special young man," so they'll believe him. Papa Luthor also threatens to turn into Willowbrook's "very formidable nemesis." Clark mutters, "The friend who becomes the enemy." Papa Luthor is all, "Jigga wha?" Clark is all, "This barn belongs to my family, so good day, sir." Papa Luthor is like, "But I..." and Clark goes, "I said GOOD DAY!" Also, there sure are a lot of red and blue items hanging around the barn. Foreshadowing!
Clark goes to ask for Willowbrook's help, and Willowbrook agrees. Clark theorizes that maybe Jeremiah really is Naman. Willowbrook points out that Jeremiah didn't fall from the sky in a rain of fire. Well, there is that. Confucius say, "Jeremiah is desperate to be someone he's not, and [Clark] is desperate not to be someone [he is]." Clark takes this in, and then says that he knows he's not a killer. Willowbrook says that Clark might be surprised, and asks how he can help. Clark thinks he can get Jeremiah to come to him. Willowbrook promises to pass Clark's message through other members of the tribe.
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!
