Lex's bad treatment of women
10 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A shameful part of Lex Luthor's past is exposed through an ex-flame in this episode, 'Bound.'

Lex has a one-night stand with a woman whom he doesn't even know. He wakes up with her dead and bloody to his side. Lex finds himself in serious legal trouble as a top suspect of the murder. Clark believes Lex, but realizes that Lex has treated many women badly over his lifetime, and many want revenge. Lex's lawyer initially seems intent on helping Lex get out of the financial trouble, but it turns out that she too is a woman that Lex has treated badly in the past, and eventually takes the side of the woman who is framing Lex.

This episode contributes to the continuous weathering of the Clark-Lex relationship, as Clark realizes that there are many sides of Lex's life which he does not know and has never been told.
