Davis Bloome killed criminals as a means for keeping the beast inside him from taking over. He injected Jimmy, who had witnessed one of his murders, with a drug so that people believed he had hallucinations. While he was attempting another murder, Jimmy chained him to a fence and Davis begun transforming. Chloe arrived and touched him, whereupon the transformation ceased and reversed.

Trivia:At the end of the episode Clark changes into his red and blue blur clothing in a phone booth. This is an allusion to Superman's well known habit of changing in telephone booths.
