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

Grant Gabriel: Congratulations on the Daily Planet. Wonderful. One more piece in my life you can control, starting with my creation.
Lex Luthor: I can't believe you let that lunatic sneak his ideas into your head. You're my brother.
Grant Gabriel: No, Lex. I'm an experiment. Beneath all that arrogance, your cracks are starting to show. Did you really think you could keep this a secret? Or are you so desperate to mean something to someone, it was worth the risk?
Lex Luthor: You can't punish me for wanting a family.
Grant Gabriel: How am I supposed to feel, being ...

This Episode Greatly Progresses the Season's story lines

Lois Lane is forced to try and wrangle the truth out of Lex Luthor when a bomb is on her cousin Chloe in this very revealing episode.

Holiday spirit is in the air at the Daily Planet when 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. Meanwhile, Chloe and Jimmy Olsen are stuck in the elevator with the bomb ticking, prompting Chloe to reveal a secret to Jimmy. Meanwhile, it is believed that Clark has returned from the Fortress of Solitude. Uncharacteristically, he wants to re-open Lana's 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 the previous couple of episodes. What is the reason for this uncharacteristic behavior?

This episode reveals so much from story lines following both this season and the second half of last season. The action is very minimal, but the revelations within the story make up for it.
