Storyline

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

A little darker
14 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Smallville's 19th episode gets a tad bit darker with the meteor freak Justin Gaines.

Justin is a student from Smallville High who loves to draw. However, he can no longer use his hands to do such a hobby, since they became dysfunctional after getting hit by a car. He is able to draw with his mind, however. For the second time in Season 1, Chloe has another love interest in Justin. Unfortunately for her, they are still guys who are mentally unstable with their mutations. It turns out that the driver of the car was Principal Kwan, as Justin avenges him. Clark's gotta stop this guy.

In addition, Whitney asks Lana if they can revisit their relationship. This comes right after Lex has given Lana extra grants on the Talon to keep the shop open after Lex had bought it from Lana's aunt.
