October 23, 2008 - A serial killer attacks a local club, injuring and murdering several patrons. Clark arrives and discovers Davis's body, covered in blood and lying unconscious on the floor. Davis denies any memory of the event. While looking for clues, Clark meets John Jones, who, since losing his powers, has taken a job as a police detective. John and Clark work together on the attack, with John indicating that there have been others and that Davis has been the first to arrive on each of the scenes. Davis discovers that the blood on his body is not his, and that he has no wounds; Davis starts to believe that he is the killer because he suffers blackouts during the attacks, and finds his skin under the fingernail of a victim. One of Chloe's Isis clients attacks Davis and Jimmy, and after Clark subdues him, the client confesses to all of the murders. John warns Clark that his heroic actions are getting a lot of attention and could expose him to the world, so he needs to be more careful when saving people.

Chloe and Jimmy survive, answering the questions to the jeweler's satisfaction, who sets them free; unfortunately, Lois is kidnapped by the jeweler. Clark goes to her rescue, but a kryptonite watch the jeweler wears weakens Clark. During the line of questions, Lois admits that she loves Clark. Before Clark can answer, he manages to strip the watch off the jeweler and then knock him unconscious. Later, Lois chalks up her "love" for Clark as nothing more than a lie, which she was able to accomplish by slipping the lie-detector electrode off her finger.
