Storyline

Bob Rickman is an evil tycoon who intends to build a highly polluting plant in Smallville, and he needs to buy Jonathan Kent's farm. Rickman is famous because of his capacity of convincing people, but indeed he has a powerful gift of changing people's mind with his shake of hands, and he uses his new kryptonite power of persuasion against Jonathan. Meanwhile, the hermit Kyle Tippet, who was the former business partner of Rickman, helps Clark and Lex against the powerful and greedy industrialist. But Clark's quick kinship with Kyle causes a rift between him, Lana and Whitney who both dislike the mysterious hermit. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

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 »

When Lex swipes his credit card to buy fuel before they head to Metropolis, he swipes his back to front, not scanning the magnetic strip through at all. See more »

A Persuasive Shake of Hands
20 March 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The evil tycoon Bob Rickman (Rick Peters) intends to build a very pollutant plant in Smallville, and he needs to buy Jonathan Kent's farm. Rickman is famous because of his capacity of convincing people, but indeed he has a powerful gift of changing people's mind with his shake of hands, and he uses his power against Jonathan. Meanwhile, the eremite Kyle Tippet (Gregory Sporleder), who was the former partner of Rickman, helps Clark Kent and Lex Luthor against the powerful industrialist.

"Hug" is another good episode of Smallville. In this episode, Clark Kent realizes that he is invulnerable to bullets, and that Lex Luthor is his best friend. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "O Aperto de Mãos" ("The Shake of Hands")
