On Valentine’s Day, Clark is affected by a new form of gem kryptonite that gives him the ability to unwittingly force others to do what he says. Chaos ensues as Lois becomes a traditional girlfriend, Chloe does anything to watch over Clark, and Emil becomes a slacker. When Clark realizes what has happened, he decided to use his new power to learn the truth from Zod about the the murder of Jor-El.
Lois gets Clark to help her peer over the wall of the new R.A.O. Inc., construction site and find out why they're working overtime to complete their tower project. Lois falls and lands in Clark's arms, and then tells him they're moving in high-tech equipment. She figures that they're hiding something but Clark suggests they drop it. Lois wonders if he knows something she doesn't, but he suggests they should enjoy Valentine's Day. She dismisses it as a corporate-create holiday and admits that when she's embraced it in the past, things have gone bad. A woman dressed as Cupid hands out chocolates and blows some glittery dust on them. Clark's eyes briefly glow blue...Read the full recap
Clark: Thanks, Chloe. You're a life-saver.
Chloe: If by that you mean sweet on the outside and empty in the middle, that's pretty much exactly how I feel right now.
Tess: You're digging your own grave.
Zod: Then you'd better make sure there's room in there for both of us.
Clark: I need to figure out a way to reverse this. I think I breathed in some sort of new meteor rock.
Dr. Emil Hamilton: (chuckles) Dude, hasn't anyone ever told you not to inhale?
Chloe: I'm sorry, but embracing the red skies definitely violates my no-conspiring-with-baddies policy.
Clark: My father was murdered, and I'm here to collect.
Tess: Collect on what?
Clark: Justice, or vengeance. It just depends whose side you're on.
Tess: I had no idea that your powers disappeared.
Clark: Don't worry, Tess. I'll save your world. Just not with you in it.
Lois: Look, I know it sounds crazy, but I'm just afraid that my big mouth is going to wreck our relationship one days.
Clark: Don't worry, Lois. It's not going to be that easy to get rid of me.
Zod: You want to become one of us. You want to live by our ways, and yet, you reject them. Kal-El, when you came to us with your powers, I thought... I thought it represented hope for all of us. But because you were too weak to do it, I had to kill one of my own soldiers... to get justice for you.
Clark: This isn't my kind of justice.
Zod: In the coming days, you will see there is only one kind of justice. And then you have to decide if you really are one of us.
