When Clark learns that Jessie and her father are actually fugitives from a witness relocation program pursued by a corrupt federal agent, Clark decides to take matters into his own hands. Elswhere, the blind Lionel becomes more of an annoyance to Lex, forcing him to make some changes.

When I put that ring on, I felt the sudden urge to tell the whole world my secret. Lex, Lana, Jessie.
But you didn't, Clark.
I know, but the feelings are still there. It's like I have these two identities, and I don't know which one's the real me.
The real you is the one who came back to us. And we never had any doubt that you would.
