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
