After Jodi Keenan, the wife of a Special Forces soldier, sets off a pipe bomb in one of Lex's secret labs, Lionel is severely injured and Lex is taken hostage by the enraged spouse. Claiming Lex kidnapped her missing husband, Jodi threatens to blow up the entire lab with Lex inside unless he tells her where her husband is. Lex naturally denies knowing Jodi's husband, Wes, Clark sets off to rescue Lex, but is immediately felled by the kryptonite lining the earthen walls. Lex and Clark realize the only way they will make it out alive is by helping each other before the bomb detonates. Meanwhile, Lionel reveals to Lana why he forced her into marrying Lex, which leads her to investigate Lex's secret research of his 'Project 33.1' research as well as his work in tracking down the Phantom Zone escapees to capture and use one as part to create his army of 'super-human' soldiers.
