Meanwhile, his opponent Lex is visited by a group of fans leaded by the fanatic Samantha Drake, and the deranged woman threatens the safety of Jonathan by attempting to assassinate him at a political rally by using Lois to carry out the deed. Meanwhile, Lana discusses with Clark their sex life on why he no longer wants to make love to her, and Clark exposes his innermost fears to Chloe that Lana will discover his secret superpowers if he continues his romance with Lana. Elsewhere, Lionel takes and eliminates the dossier Griff has prepared to Lex to discredit Jonathan, and offers his financial support to Martha. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Crazed Lex fan goes to great lengths
1 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sometimes political races can get desperate, insane and dirty. And that's how a crazy Lex Luthor supporter, the president of "Students for Lex" at Central Kansas U., gets in this tenth episode.

Lex Luthor is campaigning when he speaks to the group at his mansion. Going by his saying of "go the extra ten miles" and "do whatever it takes to win," the students go after Lex's opposer Jonathan Kent to effectively give Lex the seat. The president goes even further than her fellow supporters would like, to radical lengths of support of Lex, when she learns that Jonathan survived their attack. Clark must stop her and an attempted assassination of his father at Jonathan's main rally meeting.

This is a pretty exciting episode. It is not at all a weak episode, definitely worth watching, while not one of the three or four best of the season thus far. It is interesting to see more of the increasingly heating Senate race between a man who steps further and further into darkness against a man who is the father of his former best, and only, friend.
