Meanwhile, Vince Davis, the older brother of Clark Kent's friend Garrett Davis, needs a liver transplant - but does not receive one and he dies. His body is sent to Metropolis to be the next test subject of Lionel's experiment by Dr. Lia Teng, who injects his dead body with experimental blood platelets and revives him. When Vince gets sick again (because he needs the life-sustaining blood injections on a daily basis), the unstable Garrett loses control and becomes a threat to the patients, employees, and visitors of the hospital by showing up at the hospital with a kryptonite-infused bomb strapped to himself, threatening to blow himself up unless his brother receives a new liver transplant. Clark must try to find a way to defuse the situation during Jonathan's heart surgery, while the overzealous Sheriff Adams wants ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Lex Luthor: Can't you just send me to the principal instead? I offered to fund your research, doctor... you turned your back on me. Now I suggest you tell me the origin of your little platelette cocktail or I'll make sure INS reserves you a window seat on the next flight to Peun Yun.

3x15 - Rewatch (Clark-centric)
21 July 2016 | by DCSassyQueenSee all my reviews

Garrett's brother dies & then comes to life. So, now Garrett's brother needs a new liver to survive. Then, John Q. occurs. Garrett straps a bomb to himself & holds the patients in the hospital hostage until his brother gets the help he needs.

I find it funny how the show incorporated kryptonite in about every episode to weaken Clark. It appears in the most random places & the most random times.

Clark found out that Lionel Luthor is using his blood in a serum to bring people back to life.
