Justin Gaines is a teenage cartoonist who is recovering in the hospital from a car accident with the power of telekinesis. but has mobility problems with his hands. He believes his doctor was negligent, and he will not be able to draw again, so he provokes a serious accident with the brash Dr. Christopher Wells. Justin returns to Smallville, and begins dating Chloe Sullivan, who is upset with Clark Kent, making him jealous with the situation. When Justin reveals his powers to Chloe, she decides to investigate to help him find the driver who hit him and didn't stop. When they discover that it was the school principal Kwan, Justin takes matters into his own hands and kills him, leading Clark to try to find a way to stop Justin. Meanwhile, Lex's former nanny, Pamela Jenkins, comes to Smallville to ask Lex to forgive her for abandoning him after his mother's death nearly ten years ago. Also, Whitney tries to ask Lana for a second chance with her. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Telekinesis, Triangle of Love and Forgiveness
8 April 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The teenager cartoonist Justin Gaines (Adam Brody) recovers in the hospital from a car accident with the power of telekinesis but problems with his hands. He believes his doctor was negligent, and he will not be able to draw again, so he provokes a serious accident with Dr. Christopher Wells (James Purcell). Justin returns to Smallville, dates Chloe Sullivan, who is upset with Clark Kent, making him jealous with the situation. Chloe decides to investigate to help Justin to find the driver that hit him without help. Meanwhile, the former Luthor's maiden Pamela Jenkins (Donna Bullock) comes to Smallville to ask Lex Luthor to forgive her.

I found "Crush" a very beautiful episode, in spite of having deaths and a dark accident. The triangle of love between Clark Kent, Lana Lang and Chloe Sullivan is very well explored in "Crush". The last scene in the cemetery, raining and with Eva Cassidy singing "Time After Time" is of extremely good taste and sensitive. My vote is ten.

Title (Brazil): "Telecinésia" ("Telekinesis")
