Le docteur de Jimmy a été tué et Jimmy remarque que 3 dossiers de patients, dont le sien, ont disparu. De ce fait, il en parle à Loïs et vont directement chez la première patiente et ils la sauve juste à temps d'une agression. La jeune fille est amené au Daily Planet et Loïs décide de l'héberger quelques temps.

La deuxième personne est portée disparue selon Clark mais elle attaque le Daily Planet et meurt d'un coup. Tout le monde est abasourdi par ce qui se passe.

Il y a 20 ans, l'armée a implanté un virus inactif dans le corps de ces trois personnes, dont Jimmy. Le virus peut-être activé grâce à la substance nommée la Tansion. Il provoque alors une paralysie de la libre-pensée et ils deviennent des soldats et obéissent aux ordres.

C'est grâce à une veuve et sa fille docteur qu'ils ont pu apprendre cela et elles essayent de vendre ce concept et elles testent les cobays. Quand Jimmy entend le mot guerrier, il se dirige dans l'appartement de Loïs pour la tuer et la jeune fille essaye de tuer Clark. Superman sauve Loïs et Jimmy.

 1   INT. DOCTOR FROST'S OFFICE - NIGHT #1                                       1  

     A darkened office.  The silhouetted figure of a woman
     wearing SURGICAL GLOVES, works quickly to pick the lock on a
     file cabinet, then starts rifling through file folders.
     Suddenly, a shaft of light floods the office as the door
     swings open revealing DOCTOR ALAN FROST, late 50's, a simple
     man in sport jacket and tie, who's stunned by what he sees.

                                           DR. FROST
                       Katherine! What are you doing?!

     The woman turns, revealing DOCTOR KATHERINE PEROT, 30-ish,
     smart and beautiful.

                                           KATHERINE
                       Doctor Frost!

                                           DR. FROST
                       I thought this was settled.  Those
                       files are to be destroyed.

                                           KATHERINE
                       Those files represent years of my
                       father's work.

                                           DR. FROST
                       Katherine, Project Valhalla was a
                       horrible mistake.

                                           CLAUDINE (O.S.)
                       Was it?


 2   ANOTHER ANGLE REVEALS                                                       2  

     CLAUDINE PEROT, Katherine's mother, late 40's-early 50's.  A
     sultry, attractive woman, revealingly dressed to the nines
     including white gloves, and a Tiparillo.  She gives the
     impression she'd destroy anyone who got in her way.  Think
     Joan Collins only not as classy.  She steps into the office,
     closing the door behind her.

                                           KATHERINE
                             (cynical)
                       Nice work mother.  I thought you
                       were going to keep him occupied.

                                           CLAUDINE
                       Yes.  Well, apparently I'm not
                       Doctor Frost's type.

                                           KATHERINE
                             (sarcastic)
                       Really?  I can't imagine why not.

                                           DR. FROST
                       Claudine, this is insane.  Even
                       your husband admitted that
                       experiment never should have
                       happened.

                                           CLAUDINE
                       But George is dead and as his widow
                       I'm entitled to all his belongings.
                       Including his files on the Valhalla
                       Project.

                                           DR. FROST
                       That's absurd.  Look, I've already
                       begun putting calls out to the
                       kids who were involved in the
                       experiment...

                                           CLAUDINE
                             (interrupting)
                       Then we'll just have to work a lot
                       faster.

     She nods to Katherine who turns back to the file cabinet. 
     As Frost turns toward Katherine, Claudine pulls a letter
     opener from her purse.

                                           DR. FROST
                       No! You can't play God with
                       people's lives...

     Claudine comes up behind him, stabbing him in the back with
     the letter opener.  He stiffens a beat, then falls to the
     ground.

                                           CLAUDINE
                       Oh yes we can.

     Katherine turns, holding a folder boldly marked VALHALLA. 
     She eyes the fallen doctor, then looks at her mother who
     slips the letter opener back into her purse.

                                           CLAUDINE (CONT'D)
                             (feigned innocence)
                       Looks like there's an opening for a
                       new head of Family Medicine.
                             (re: folder)
                       Are the targets in there?

     Katherine lays the folder down on a table and opens it.

     Fanned out are three pages that look like a doctor's initial
     interview page with the patient's name, address, date of
     birth, and a 3X5 black and white photo in the corner.  As
     we go close on the top page, the name and photo come into
     focus:  JAMES B. OLSEN.

                                           KATHERINE (O.S.)
                       They're here.

 4   INT. DAILY PLANET BULLPEN - DAY #2                                          4  

     CLOSE ON a CONE SHAPED WOOD CARVING resting on Lois' desk.
     We WIDEN to REVEAL a puzzled LOIS and JIMMY eyeing it.

                                           JIMMY
                       Okay, I give.  What is it?

                                           LOIS
                       It's a... well, it's obviously
                       a...
                             (surrendering)
                       Dan Scardino sent it over and I
                       don't have a clue as to what it is.

     Jimmy SPINS THE CARVING on it's base, revealing he has a
     rash on his forearm thru...

                                           JIMMY
                       Here's one clue.  It's ugly.

     Lois notices Jimmy scratching his arm.

                                           LOIS
                       That must be some itch.

     Jimmy raises his arm and we focus on the DISTINCTIVELY
     PATTERNED RASH.

                                           JIMMY
                       Yeah.  I get it every year around
                       this time.  Ever since I was a kid.

                                           LOIS
                       Ooof.  Looks awful.  Don't they
                       have some cream or something you
                       can put on it?

                                           JIMMY
                       I've tried everything.  But my doc
                       says not to worry.

                                           PERRY (O.S.)
                       Jimmy...

     JIMMY turns and sees PERRY standing at the entrance to his
     office.  Perry looks uncomfortable, somber.

                                           PERRY (CONT'D)
                       Can I see you for a moment, son?

                                           JIMMY
                       Sure, Chief.

     As he exits, DAN SCARDINO appears at Lois' desk.

                                           DAN
                             (re: gift)
                       Hi.  I see you got it.

                                           LOIS
                       Oh... uh yeah... thanks.  You
                       shouldn't have.

                                           DAN
                       Well, anybody can send flowers, and
                       I thought this would be something
                       you could really appreciate.

                                           LOIS
                       And I do.
                             (awkward beat)
                       So

                                           DAN
                       So if you remember, a while back
                       we talked about us maybe going out.

                                           LOIS
                             (sighs)
                       Dan, I'm flattered, I really am.
                       It's just... there's someone I've
                       kinda been seeing...

                                           DAN
                       Kent.
                             (off her nod)
                       Nice guy.  Real... polite.

                                           LOIS
                       Well, there's more to him than
                       that.  He's bright, he's...

     Scardino's eyes stop her cold.  The way he's looking at
     her... she could swim in them forever.

                                           LOIS (CONT'D)
                       He's... he's polite...

     She stops, realizes that sounds familiar.

                                           DAN
                       They say good things come to those
                       that wait.  I got time.

     He flashes a dazzling smile, then heads for the elevators,
     leaving a conflicted Lois behind.

     CLARK enters from a side entrance, spots Scardino leaving. 
     A troubled look crosses his face as he approaches Lois.

                                           CLARK
                       What did he want?

                                           LOIS
                       Huh? oh, he just came by to say
                       hi. You know, in the neighborhood,
                       that sort of thing.

                                           CLARK
                             (re: carving)
                       He give you that?

                                           LOIS
                       Yeah.  Just something he saw and
                       thought I'd like.

     Clark nods, less than thrilled.  As he turns to head for his
     desk...

                                           LOIS (CONT'D)
                       I wish I knew what it was.

                                           CLARK
                             (to himself)
                       It's trouble.

     Perry exits his office, his arm around a stunned Jimmy.

                                           PERRY
                       Lois.  Clark.

     He gestures for them to approach.  As they do...

                                           LOIS
                       Jimmy... what's the matter?

                                           JIMMY
                             (shaken)
                       Dr. Frost has been murdered.

                                           CLARK
                       Alan Frost?  The doctor who writes
                       that weekly column for us?

                                           PERRY
                       The same.  He was also Jimmy's
                       family doctor.

                                           JIMMY
                       He just called me yesterday.  Left
                       a message on my machine. I was
                       gonna call him back today...

     Perry hands Clark a slip of paper.

                                           PERRY
                       According to the police, Frost also
                       left messages with these two other
                       patients.  But they never talked
                       with him either.  I want you two on
                       this.

     Lois and Clark nod, turn to leave when...

                                           JIMMY
                       Chief?  I want to go with them.

                                           PERRY
                       Now Jimmy, I understand how you
                       feel, but...

                                           JIMMY
                       Chief, please.  I knew Dr. Frost my
                       whole life.

                                           PERRY
                             (beat, then)
                       All right.

     As Jimmy flashes him a grateful smile...

 6   INT. HOSPITAL CORRIDOR - DAY                                                6  

     Lois, Clark and Jimmy approach a counter at a nurses station
     manned by NURSE BERKEY, no doubt a drill sergeant in a
     former life.  She's swamped under paper work and she's
     cranky.  Nearby is Doctor Frost's office door, with yellow
     police tape across it.

                                           CLARK
                       Excuse me, we're from the Daily
                       Planet.  We'd like to take a look
                       at Doctor Frost's office.

                                           NURSE BERKEY
                       Oh, you would?  Well we have strict
                       orders not to turn this place into
                       a media circus.

                                           LOIS
                       Well...

                                           NURSE BERKEY
                       Do you understand English?
                             (to Clark)
                       Perhaps you could interpret for
                       her.
                             (to approaching worker)
                       Charlene, there's a case of
                       pentobarbitol missing from your
                       inventory report.  Find it.
                             (to Lois)
                       Do I need to call security?

     Clark leads Lois away.  Jimmy follows.

                                           LOIS
                       Do you believe that woman's
                       attitude

                                           JIMMY
                       Talk about your bedside manner.

                                           CLARK
                       We're going to need a diversion to
                       get by her.

     He eyes a pregnant woman being pushed past in a
     wheelchair...

                                           CLARK (CONT'D)
                       I've got an idea.

                                                               WIPE TO:


 7   INT. HOSPITAL CORRIDOR - LATER                                              7  

     A very pregnant woman with an oxygen mask over her face lies
     on a gurney that's wheeled down the corridor by a doctor in
     surgical scrubs, including mask and cap.  A closer look
     reveals Clark as the doctor, the patient, Lois.  Suddenly,
     Lois lets out a loud MOAN and continues MOANING thru...

                                           CLARK
                       Nurse!  I have an emergency here!


 8   ANOTHER ANGLE                                                               8  

     Nurse Berkey rises from her seat and hurries to the gurney,

     Nurse Berkey-quickly heads back to her station and picks up
     the phone thru...

                                           NURSE BERKEY
                       Who should I get for an
                       anesthesiologist?

     Clark's face suddenly goes blank.  Lois MOANS louder.

                                           CLARK
                       Anybody!

     As Nurse Berkey starts dialing...

                                           NURSE BERKEY
                       What's the diagnosis?

                                           CLARK
                       Uh... uh...

     Another LOUDER MOAN.

                                           CLARK (CONT'D)
                       Pain!  A lot of pain!

     A skeptical look crosses Berkey's face.  Then...

                                           NURSE BERKEY
                       Take the staff elevators Doctor,
                       it's faster.

     Clark and Lois exchange a look, obviously neither of them
     know where the staff elevators are.  Another LOUD moan as
     Nurse Berkey eyes them, suspicious.

                                           NURSE BERKEY (CONT'D)
                       Doctor!  The staff elevators!

     She points down the corridor, opposite of the way they came.
     Clark runs to the other end of the gurney and quickly pushes
     in the direction the nurse pointed.

                       very unhappy with the level of
                       security for this hospital.

     As Clark tries maneuvering the unwieldy gurney past the
     threesome he loses control and CRASHES into a food cart.
     The impact sends trays flying and Lois' 'baby,' a
     BASKETBALL, rolls out from under the sheet.  As Katherine
     Perot picks it up, an angry Nurse Berkey advances on them.
     Lois hops off the gurney.

                                           LOIS
                             (backing up)
                       Well.  Guess I won't be needing
                       that C-section after all.

12   INT. SARAH LONGLEY'S APARTMENT - DAY - CONTINUOUS                          12  

     Lois and Jimmy burst in to discover SARAH LONGLEY, early
     20's, pretty, smart, with an acerbating wit and a tendency
     to overanalyze everything.  At the moment she's standing in
     her living room, struggling to extricate herself from the
     grasp of MARTIN WONG, late 20's, powerfully built.

                                           JIMMY
                       Hey, leave her alone!

     At the sight of Jimmy and Lois, Wong releases Sarah, darts
     through an open window and heads down a fire escape.

                                           LOIS
                             (to Sarah)
                       Are you all right?

                                           SARAH
                             (dazed)
                       Yeah, I think.

                                           JIMMY
                       I'm going after him!

     As he heads for the window...

                                           LOIS
                       Jimmy, no!

     But it's too late.  He's already out the window.

                                           LOIS (CONT'D)
                       What happened?

                                           SARAH
                       I don't know. The last thing I
                       remember is waking up on the couch
                       and seeing that guy standing over
                       me.

     Wong drops six feet from the bottom of the fire escape
     ladder to the sidewalk and races across a sidewalk to a
     motorcycle.  Wong kick starts the cycle as Jimmy drops from
     the fire escape ladder in hot pursuit.


14   ANOTHER ANGLE                                                              14  

     Clark rounds a corner and sees Jimmy racing after Wong,
     who's pulling away from the curb, just feet ahead of Jimmy.
     Clark ducks into a doorway and rips open his shirt REVEALING

                                           CLAUDINE
                       Only three of Project Valhalla's
                       100 test subjects are still living
                       in Metropolis.  Katherine's
                       completed tests on one.  I think
                       you'll be impressed with her
                       findings.

                                           MR. MUUNOUR
                       I am impressed with nothing I have
                       seen so far.

                                           CLAUDINE
                             (shamelessly flirting)
                       Nothing?

                                           KATHERINE
                       Mother please... have SOME respect
                       for yourself.

                                           CLAUDINE
                             (patiently)
                       My daughter views this project as
                       some kind of validation of her late
                       father's work.  Me, I smell money. 
                       Lots of money.  So my goal is to
                       please you.

                                           KATHERINE
                             (to Muunour)
                       The synthetic virus injected into
                       these subjects is lying dormant and
                       can be activated only during
                       heightened metabolic periods.
                       These periods are indicated by a
                       red rash.

                                           MR. MUUNOUR
                       Go on.

     Lifting a model of the human brain.

                                           KATHERINE
                       The virus only affects the
                       pre-frontal cortex... that's the
                       area that controls free thought.

                                           MR. MUUNOUR
                       I know what it is.  I'm not a
                       moron.

                             (challenging)
                       So I can assume you know where that
                       area is.

     Muunour confidently pinpoints an area on the model with his
     finger.  Katherine pushes his finger over an inch.  He
     withdraws, unamused.

                                           KATHERINE (CONT'D)
                       The ultimate effect is similar to
                       brain washing.  Once the subject is
                       injected with the pentobarbitol
                       serum the virus is activated.  Then
                       they're able to be controlled by
                       use of the trigger word, 'Warrior.'

                                           MR. MUUNOUR
                       But given the price you ask, you
                       still haven't convinced me of its
                       value.

                                           KATHERINE
                       You know, Mr. Muunour, unlike my
                       father, you are a man of little
                       vision.

                                           CLAUDINE
                       Katherine...

                                           KATHERINE
                             (ignoring her)
                       The virus can be mass produced. 
                       Under the guise of public health,
                       you can set up clinics and alter
                       everyone in your country.

                                           CLAUDINE
                       Imagine, a whole nation that
                       blindly answers to your command.
                       I'd say that's valuable, wouldn't
                       you?

                                           MR. MUUNOUR
                       I want proof.  And on a male
                       subject only.
                             (to Katherine)
                       Where I come from, we don't need

                                           STORMIN' NORMAN
                       Right, right Well, I heard about
                       something back in the 70's.
                       Something called the Valhalla
                       Project.

                                           LOIS
                       What was it?

                                           CLAUDINE
                       More likely he didn't think to

                                           KATHERINE (CONT'D)
                       I'm sorry I can't be of more help.
                             (picks up phone)
                       Doctor Perot.

     As she listens, Clark uses his SUPERHEARING to eavesdrop on
     the phone call.  We recognize Mister Muunour's voice.

                                           MR. MUUNOUR (Filtered)
                       My plane leaves at three o'clock

                                           LOIS
                       Uh... Doctor, I was wondering. Do
                       you know a man named Roxie Terrace?

     There's a brief hint of being caught off guard in Perot's
     expression. She looks down at the desk, sees the phone
     message then...

                                           KATHERINE
                       Do you make a habit of reading
                       people's phone messages, Miss Lane?

     The taggers exchange a look, then run like hell.  Superman

                       I heard you were on stake-out and I

     He pulls out two wine glasses and puts them in the cup

                       Actually Clark went for food... but
                       I don't know what's taking him so

                       Look, I'm attracted to you... and

                       away friends.  But if _we're_
                       supposed to be...

     Lois eyes him a beat, then takes a deep breath.


72   ANOTHER ANGLE - AT CLARK'S DESK                                            72  

     Clark sits at his desk, arms folded.  Lois approaches. 
     There's an uncomfortable beat, then...

                                           LOIS
                       Clark...

                                           CLARK
                       You're going to go out with
                       Scardino, aren't you?

     There's an uncomfortable beat.

                                           CLARK (CONT'D)
                       Look, if that's what you want to
                       do, do it.

                                           LOIS
                             (beat, then)
                       Clark... you know me.  I could
                       never live with a 'what if' hanging
                       over my head.
                             (and then)
                       I think I owe it to myself and our
                       relationship to find out.

     Clark and she share a long look, then...

                                           CLARK
                       Okay.

     She nods, heads back towards Scardino.


                            --page break--
     TARGET: JIMMY OLSEN!    Blake & Jackson      2/22/95                     58.   


73   ON CLARK - INCLUDING HIS POV                                               73  

     He watches her return to the coffee area, where Scardino
     greets her. As they talk...


74   ANOTHER ANGLE                                                              74  

     The staffer passes Clark's desk, sees him watching Dan and
     Lois.

                                           STAFFER
                       Boy, that guy's sure got a way with
                       women.

     And as he walks off...

                                           CLARK
                             (to himself)
                       Yeah.  And he just got away with
                       mine.

                                                               FADE OUT:

                                    _THE END_
