Chloe Sullivan: I wonder who's more freaked out right now. Me, knowing I'm in a hospital where they get their medicine via dogsled... Or you, finally finding out I know your secret.
Clark Kent: How long have you known?
Chloe Sullivan: I guess I've always had my suspicions. The quick exits, the miraculous recoveries, the lame excuses. But I think when I saw you catch a car like it was a beach ball, that kind of confirmed everything.
Clark Kent: Why didn't you say anything?

Who was Sam Loeb?
15 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

At the end credits of this episode there is a page that says:

"In Memory of Sam Loeb (1988-2005) A True Superboy"

Purusing the credits at IMDb I can find no one named "Loeb"; nor the mystery thirteen-year-old mentioned.

It is always a bit annoying when the producers include mystery memoriams at the end of a movie or episode. It is nice that they choose to do so but it would be helpful to know who they were.

It leaves the audience with this mystery person who may or may not have been germane to the plot. If they are an actor we want to know which one.

So who was Sam Loeb?
