After losing his college scholarship, a depressed Whitney falls in with a group of three former jocks from Smallville High who have tattoos made from kryptonite-laced paint that give them the power to walk through walls and commit various robberies around town. While Clark tries to track down the robbers, without getting physically close to them because of their tattoos, Chloe is seriously injured during a robbery of Lex's mansion when she is thrown out a window. Lex has his own plans to find the robbery trio when they steal an incriminating computer disk from his mansion. Also, Lana learns that Lex is the one who bought out the old movie theater and Nell's flower shop. Written by Anonymous

Clark Kent: I just want to say I'm sorry.
Chloe Sullivan: For what?
Clark Kent: Letting you get hurt.
Chloe Sullivan: Well, I am perturbed with you, Clark. I'm also mad that you didn't put out the Chicago fire of 1871, or prevent the fall of the Roman Empire, making you directly responsible for the Dark Ages.

Whitney's having a tough time
14 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Whitney Fordman falls in a rough crowd after losing his college scholarship for football. He joins other thugs who use a powerful green substance as tattoos on their bodies to walk through walls and commit robberies.

Meanwhile, Chloe Sullivan gets seriously injured during the thieves' robbery of Lex's mansion. Clark must save the day without letting his secret be seen by Lex or Chloe.

This episode is interesting because it focuses primarily on Whitney, a character whose story in "Smallville" is essentially wrapped up one episode into Season 2.
