As Christmas draws near, Lois receives a call from an anonymous man claiming that Chloe is attached to a bomb, and the only way he won't let it blow is if she reports the truth of Lex's atrocious experiments about the mysterious 33.1. Lois tries to find a way on her own to stop the mysterious person who is linked to both Lex and Grant Gabriel. Chloe and Jimmy end up getting stuck in an elevator at the Daily Planet with the bomb ticking, prompting Chloe to reveal her secret meteor-rock power of healing to him. Meanwhile, Clark returns from his enforced imprisonment from the Fortress of Solitude. With Kara still missing, Clark uncharacteristically wants Lana to re-open her Isis program of spying on Lex with the intent of taking him down, and wants to become closer to Lana when he has been distancing himself from her. But what exactly does 'Clark' have in mind?
