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 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.

Quotes

Lionel Luthor: Despite your intense studies, it seems Jonathan Kent, after yesterday's theatrics, has surged ahead of you in the polls.
Lex Luthor: I didn't have anything to do with that.
Lionel Luthor: No, no, of course you didn't. But it looks as though your disciples tried to follow in your footsteps. They have succeeded in creating quite a mess. How does it feel, Lex, to have people worship you?
Lex Luthor: Being the idol for a cult of psychopaths isn't exactly a power trip, dad.
Lionel Luthor: No, but I suppose being a state senator would be. Isn't that why...

Disappointing Lack of Ethics
2 June 2007 | by 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.

Title (Brazil): "Fanática" ("Fanatic")
