Storyline

When Dr. Steven Hamilton, physically sick from repeated exposure to meteor rock radiation, causing constant Parkinson-like twitches, becomes a liability to Lex Luthor, he terminates their contract. Dr. Hamilton leaves the mansion and drives down the road like a lunatic and causes a serious accident with a truck driven by Ray Wallace. The truck overturns in a cornfield near Clark Kent's spacecraft and, while trying to rescue Ray, Pete Ross sees the UFO. The next morning, Pete asks Clark to help him to bring the object to his workshop. When Dr. Hamilton steals the spacecraft, Pete believes Clark has taken it, so Clark discloses his secret to his friend. Meanwhile, the now blind Lionel Luthor moves into Lex's mansion forcing Lex to care for him. Also, to Lana's dismay, her aunt Nell Potter is in love with a new boyfriend named Dean. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Goofs

When Pete is talking about how Clark's downed spaceship is 'the Holy Grail' of stories, he says 'the Holy Grail' but his mouth repeats the words when the angle changes, without a sound. The same happens a few seconds later in the same scene, when Pete says "live it down". See more »

Quotes

Pete Ross: [after being saved by Clark from Dr. Hamilton] There's still one thing. Hamilton tried to kill me and... he could have told the whole world about you... but you still tried to save him.
Clark Kent: Well, Pete, I couldn't let you die to protect my secret, and I can't let anyone else die either. No matter who they are.

A Close Friend Learns a Secret
17 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The most interesting thing to see out of this episode was Clark's best friend Pete Ross discovering Clark's secret. This knowledge will become something of a curse for Pete in the time he remains in the town.

Pete discovers the ship that Clark came down from Krypton in an open field after witnessing the crash of Dr. Hamilton, whose contract was terminated with Lex Luthor after repeated exposure to the mysterious green substances caused him to be ineffective in his scientific investigations of the substance. Unfortunately, Dr. Hamilton also sees the spacecraft. Pete urges Clark to help him take the craft to his cellar, where he can explore it himself. This forces Clark to reveal the truth to Pete. Not surprisingly, Pete initially does not take this information well. He is suddenly freaked out just by being in the presence of Clark, and is fiercely tempted to tell local authorities. But as a good friend, and after a discussion with the Kents, Pete restrains and morally decides to keep the secret.

"Duplicity" carries a huge responsibility for revealing crucial moments in young Superman's life, and the writers and all involved in this episode did a really good job with it. It is interesting to observe the burden that Pete carries the remainder of the time he remains in the town, let alone that fact that someone outside of Clark's parents for the first time has the responsibility to keep this world-breaking news a secret.
