Storyline

Without the approval of his father, Clark kicks off senior year by trying out for the Smallville High Football Team, who are now coached by Lana's new boyfriend, Jason Teague. Former acne-ridden nerd Abigail Fine returns from the summer looking beautiful after some Kryptonite powered plastic surgery that spells trouble for Lana and a former tormentor when Abigail discovers that the side affect makes people insane and delusional to anyone she physically kisses. When Lois investigates Abigail's history, her ruthless, plastic surgeon mother, Dr. Fine, decides to silence the curious but klutzy Lois by enforcing the surgery on Lois. Meanwhile, Martha accepts a job managing The Talon while Lois starts working for the school paper the Torch, and gets just a little closer to Clark. Written by Shiro

Quotes

Jonathan Kent: Congratulations are in order. Coach Quigley called; you made the football team.
Clark Kent: You don't have to worry, dad. I'm not gonna hurt anyone. I know how to control my abilities.
Jonathan Kent: The person I'm worried about you hurting, Clark, is yourself. You're gonna be tempted to... run just a little bit faster, to throw the ball just far enough to win every game.
Clark Kent: [indignantly] You think I'm gonna cheat? I won't cross that line.
Jonathan Kent: You won't even know where that line is, Clark. Come on, think about it. You're out ...

A very special episode of Smallville
11 December 2007 | by (Cedar Rapids, IA, USA) – See all my reviews

Lois and the football team and the larger continuity of the episode are great, but this episode really got on my nerves. It was chock-full of didactic and cloying after-school-specialness. If they are trying to tell us that we shouldn't be so concerned about looking good, how about putting an ugly person on the show? There are ways to treat this topic that would have worked, but this wasn't one of them. It just comes across as preachy and hypocritical, with a bit of the early season's xenophobia, which is a bad combination. The villain is terribly one-note and Abigail isn't taken seriously as a character. If not for the presence of Lois, this would rate even lower.
