Spoiler:
After Lana is almost assaulted by a college student, Clark loses control and injures the boy. When the Kents are sued for punitive damages that could cost them the farm, Clark begins to question his powers while trying to find a way out of the lawsuit. Meanwhile, Helen's ex-boyfriend arrives in town intent on winning her back, but when she turns him down, he stabs her, prompting Lex to take the law into his own hands.

oh also this happened in ultimate spiderman, but instead of superman it was spiderman. flash picked on parker, so parker hit him and broke his arm, then his parents got sued and he became a wrestler. I dont know it just reminded me of this. Similar

Solid episode, great on all levels!

"Your good old boy days are over!"

Lana KICKS ASS!

Lex moves closer to the dark side!

And anybody else think that both Lana and Lex saw just a little too much of Clark in action? Lex was looking when Clark rushed in and saved him, he was bound to see the blur at least then, lo and behold, Clark comes bounding in to see how Lex is. Given all Lex has on Clark already, this is not too hard for him to figure out at this point in the series.

Another question: When will the Kent's come to terms with the fact that Clark did superhero stunts in front of Lionel all the time he could see?

Whoever played the sheriff and the stalker could not act to save their lives...

Michael Rosenbaum is the best reason to watch this show. He does wonders for the Lex Luthor character.

Glad to see the beautiful doctor make it through the episode alive.

Does Lana practice that face for every episode? You know, the one where she stares at Clark w/ scared shock and wonder?

This show has two of the best looking brunettes on tv. Kristin Kreuk and Emmanuelle Vaugier. I hated the acting of the sheriff lady. This was very much like a spiderman story. Lana can kick my butt any day

last week when they started to have a new ep from the long break they played a little vid of upcoming episodes right before a episode and I saw a 2 sec clip of lana punching a bag and i started cracking my ass up, i was laughing so hard on the ground i was like WTF lana fighting. uhhh, ok now i know that it was true and its was for this episode. but she did look good as usual.

lol, omfg i just saw lana fighting and doing a spining roundhouse jump kick with like only a day or two of training. oh man, the last time i laughed this hard during a smallville ep was when chloe was reading her poem/ letting her heart out to clark and he said lana. omg, im still laughing after that kick.

doh, i accidently forgot to turn off the tv and saw the teaser for next weeks ep, damn that looks awsome.

Wow, I bite my words from last week. Lana didn't act ungrateful or bitchy towards Clark once, really.

I wish I could learn to fight like that by training for a day or two. Kickass.

Sleepy now...

Lex's proposal

Is it me, or is this some foreshadowing of something really bad happening to Helen in the future that pushes Lex over the edge? With quite possibly Clark having to do something with it?

I have to admit I didn't care for the sheriff too much either. With me, she reminded me quite a bit of the sheriff from SIGNS. I just kept on expecting her to blame it all on a six foot tall Scandiavian Olympian for some reason.

I also think something bad is going to happen to Helen because, well, she knows that Clark is something extraordinary, and we all know that people that know Clark's secret (who aren't cast regulars) usually die or go into comas. So given that scenario, and Lex falling bald head over heels over Helen, and if Clark somehow gets the blame for Helen's demise, well, that's definitely a big enough event to cause a huge riff in their relationship and could easily put Lex on the path of villainy and evil.

I was surprised at Helen's quick recovery after getting thrown around Pathology lab like a rag doll.

Sign Lana up for Black Sash!

Hated the new sheriff in town. I was hoping the resolution with the punk's lawsuit would have resolved more cleverly than to just have Lana kick his neckbrace-wearing butt.

The whole "citizen's arrest" pursuit was just odd, it felt so out of place in the town of Smallville. It was pretty grisly too (the guy i the shower tub was all cut up around the neck). This show can be pretty dark when it wants, give it that edge.

I agree that something bad will happen to Helen but having Clark get the blame seems too "TV" for me. Here's how I see it going down:

Bad thing happens to Helen. Lionel Luthor is responsible. Lex kills or is responsible for Lionel's demise. (calhoun07, this solves your question as well as providing the change to evil Lex). Lex takes over LuthorCorp. Evil ensues.

The change in Lex's demeanor is sufficient to cause a rift between him & Clark. Besides, it is Superman that Lex absolutely hates, not Clark. Clark is just an annoying reporter pest (someday) while Superman is his arch enemy.

Michael Rosenbaum is excellent again. Pete got his one line, Chloe maybe two or three. I'm happy. Much better than last week and looking forward to next week.

especially since it just set Lana up to be in the lawsuit too. She attacked a guy in a neck brace. That won't look good when the jury decides how much money to award.
the standard "private investegator with a video camera" is the solution they should have used

All they needed to do was cut to a camera (from Chloe, perhaps, or have Lex order camera surveillance for the Talon for security reasons) recording the events in the Talon between neckbrace dude and Lana. That would have not only exonerated Lana for kicking the dude's butt up and down the store, but also give evidence for a countersuit for Clark.

Exactly. I figured Chloe was going to jump out from behind a pillar with her digital video camera or something like that. Did the dude drop the lawsuit 'cause he got his a$$ kicked by a girl? Let's just pretend Lex did the whole video surveillance thing.

After thinking it over, why is the new sheriff hated so much? Considering what a blind eye EVERYBODY in Smallville turns when it comes to Clark being in all these places where strange things happen, along comes a woman who actually SEES him do something out of the ordinary and is on to him from the moment. And she wastes NO time. She adds up all the things about him rather quickly and knows there is more to him than meets the eye, and confronts him about it. Nobody in Smallville has had the balls to do that yet. I say all the power to the Sheriff, she can go with her bad self, and Clark having a home town nemesis is not a bad plot idea in the slightest.
