Clark and Chloe are attending a rainforest preservation fundraiser using Clark's press pass. Chloe is amused that Clark is spending time with her, since she thought he'd been spending much more time with Lois recently. Clark denies it and notes Lois isn't there because she's working on an assignment and trying to stay on Tess' good side. Chloe is suspicious of Tess and Clark admits her connection Lex (who knows Clark's secret identity) worried him, but he isn't worried about her… yet. Oliver arrives with a date but collapses in front of the news cameras. Clark gets to his side and Oliver tells him that he only has 12 hours to live...Read the full recap
Tess: Lois Lane, I haven’t fired you yet?
Lois: I guess you’re too busy printing my stories.
Oliver: (talking to a centipede) All right, here’s the deal. Normally I don’t eat anything with more than 99 legs on it, but I haven’t eaten in days. Kind of a bummer for both of us, right?
Lois: It’s so not what you thinking. I may have played nurse to Oliver but it never progressed to Doctor.
Clark: Oliver, with all that poison in your system, are you sure adding more is the best idea right now?
Oliver:: Yeah, Clark, why don’t you stick to your milkshakes, huh?
Oliver: You may be invincible, but you are not fearless, are you? You’re afraid to trust your friends, and you’re afraid to face who you’re really meant to be. You’re afraid of everything. Maybe you haven’t been put to the test yet. Maybe your island’s still out there, Clark.
