Did You Know?


When Lex is having a chat with Clark at the cafe, he mentions Clark to be quite similar to Atticus Finch. Atticus Finch was one of the famous characters from the Harper Lee's novel 'To Kill a Mockingbird'. Lex mentioning this is worth noting as Atticus Finch shows his willingness to support social outcasts and so does Clark when he shows his support to Kyle. See more »

The farm is in jeopardy
12 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jonathan Kent, owner of a farm who has passed through the Kent family for centuries, suddenly was changing his mind. However, this decision did not solely come on his own. It came through the supernatural convincing power of one Bob Rickman, a businessman who wants to own the property for his business.

One of Bob's former employees helps Clark and his father work their way out of the problem. In addition, Victoria's motives began to be scrutinized by Lex, who is becoming cynical of Victoria's true reasons for arriving at the mansion.

"Hug" is a decent episode.
