Storyline

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 Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

This is about Sun Tsu Art of the War
4 March 2007 | by (China) – See all my reviews

Being a Chinese, I just know Sun Tsu wouldn't take sides of good and evil when he wrote the book the Art of the War. Neither would he know that thousands of years later one or two of his battling techniques became a basis in an American script that mainly tells stories about aliens. There is no black and white in AOW, but winning and losing. Fanatic adopts this idea in a convincing sort of way.

It is more interesting to see that Clark chose Chloe for advice on his relationship with Lana, and disappointing that Martha finally went to Lionel in a very un-Marthaish way for the money needed in Jonathan's doomed election, which is the part that annoys me greatly. Two stars were cut off for this inconsistency of Martha's personality.
