While running for campaign to the senate, Jonathan hires Lois as his advisor. 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

Clark's conversation with Chloe about his fear that he might not be able to keep from hurting Lana during physical intimacy is a reference to a classic 1969 essay by science fiction author Larry Niven called "Man of Steel, Woman of Kleenex." In that article, Niven postulates that Superman/Clark Kent would be unable to have a sexual relationship with a non-superpowered woman, since his involuntary lack of physical control could result in catastrophic injury to his partner.
