A gas main explosion gives Lana a concussion and showers her with green rocks: a combination that gives her a "dream" of Chloe being attacked outside the hospital while going to Metropolis. Then she has visions of Chloe being held bound and gagged, through the eyes of her kidnapper. A second vision shows her where Chloe has been buried alive so Clark can rescue her. It turns out she's psychically linked with a deputy at the explosion site who kidnapped Chloe to build his reputation. He plans on killing Lana to eliminate the only witness and cement his career: Clark intervenes and the deputy is subsequently killed in a shootout.
Meanwhile, Lex and reporter Roger Nixon contact a man, Eddie Cole, who was a cropduster who was working during the meteor shower and apparently saw some sort of craft crashing down in a field. This piques Lex's interest and he starts digging up the field and finds meteorite chunks. Hamilton identifies a metallic fragment as a non-Terran alloy.
