Clark examines a rural hamlet where blue kryptonite in the water has no known negative effects. However when a bell rings, tho local deputy regretfully knocks out the nosy reporter 'at the wrong time and place'. Lois has a car crash nearby and is nursed by an Amish family. Yet when she wants to leave, she discovers their chilling true intention, as the extremely aberrant sect does with one female every year. In the Luthor mansion, Alexander insists to be called Lex and his aging condition requires 'regular' birthday parties. Mercer's plan to give him a cure if the original lex's research allows so is reconsidered as she realizes this clone may be too perfect.
Did You Know?
When Lois is trying to convince the religious fanatics to let her and Clark go, the "bible verse" she quotes is actually from Pulp Fiction, part of Jules's "Ezekiel 25:17" monologue. See more
At the end of the episode, Lois is holding a copy of The Daily Planet with the cover facing away from her. In the next shot it's facing towards her and in the next shot it's facing away again. See more
Alexander, it that's what you want... you have a chance to make that happen.
How can I ever trust Clark again? He made my father hate me. He took away everything I ever cared about. And the last time I was up here, I begged him to tell me the truth about himself. But as always, he denied who he really was.
Clark is not the bad man, Alexander. Lex is. He used you just like he used me. And you don't deserve what's happened. You don't have to buy into his memories. I will help you.
Why? So you can...
