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

Trivia

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 1971 essay by science fiction author Larry Niven called "Man of Steel, Woman of Kleenex." See more »

Disappointing Lack of Ethics
2 June 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

While running in the campaign to the senate, Jonathan hires Lois as his adviser. 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. Lana discusses with Clark their sex life, and Clark exposes his innermost fears to Chloe. Lionel eliminates the dossier Griff has prepared to Lex and offers his financial support to Martha.

I did not like this episode since the disappointing lack of ethics of Martha Kent spoils the integrity of the Kent family. One of the best things "Smallville" offers to the fans are the moral values of Clark, raised by a simple but honest family, explaining how he would become the greatest American (and why not worldwide?) hero. However, the behavior of Martha accepting the support of the greatest villain of the show, the Machiavellian Lionel Luthor, is absolutely inconsistent with her character. The good moment is the discussion of Clark and Chloe about his sexual relationship and fears with Lois. But unfortunately I was upset with the amoral attitude of Martha. If Lex read the Art of War, it seems that Martha read The Prince. My vote is six.
