Storyline

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? Written by Anonymous

Quotes

Jimmy Olsen: So, can I assumed that special ability has to do with that super-sized brain inside your head?
Chloe Sullivan: No. My nerd is all natural.
Jimmy Olsen: Oh, my God. Can you fly?
Chloe Sullivan: Here, Jimmy. Just watch.
[heals a cut on Jimmy's finger]
Jimmy Olsen: I didn't really think... Where were you in ninth-grade rugby?
Chloe Sullivan: Believe me, no golden trophy is worth these side effects.
Jimmy Olsen: You okay?
Chloe Sullivan: Yeah, I'm fine. Can you just, uh, promise me that we keep this between me, you, and my Neosporin?
Jimmy Olsen: I promise. But you're still the same Chloe.

Clark, and Kara are all on the side lines in this episode (for the most part), which allows for the show's supporting characters to have their stories move forward. While Chloe, Jimmy, Lois, Grant and Lana's personal stories wouldn't normally be interesting enough to hold an entire episode, especially one that initially aired after a month long break, and would be followed by a month and a half long absence due to the writers strike, this episode surprisingly holds up as one of the strongest of the season. While this many supporting stories could have resulted in this episode being an instant dud, it's saved and driven forward by 2 elements. First, the connecting plot revolving around a bomber in the Daily Planet, and secondly the choice that was made to play this episode out almost entirely in real time. Those two elements make this episode exciting from start to finish, even though it's mostly wall to wall dialogue scenes involving secondary characters.
