Probably the show's most inappropriate episode
29 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you are conservative at all, chances are you will be offended by this fairly obscene episode.

Senator Jennings is running for re-election as Kansas senator, and visits his friend Jonathan Kent's farm to try and gain support in the town. Meanwhile, Chloe gets a distress call from a young woman in the slum of Metropolis. Chloe and Lois get there in time to see the young woman hit by a car. As it turns out, this woman was a stripper at the nearby nightclub. As investigation ensues, detectives discover pictures of Jennings in an intimate relationship with the stripper. The authorities, thanks to Lex and Clark's help, discover that Jennings ordered the car run-over to try and bury the dirt of his scandalous relationship. However, this plan backfires on him, and he has to drop out of the campaign.

The only tiny-good thing about this episode is Clark's increasing distrust in Lex, as Clark believes Lex was involved in the murder. But this episode is so inappropriate, that if you buy or rent this season on DVD, just skip the episode 'Exposed.' Simply said, it ruins the proud and famous character of Lois Lane.
