Storyline

When Lana is hit by an explosion of a gas pipeline in a field, she develops the power of clairvoyance from meteor-rock fragments where she has visions of an elusive serial kidnapper/killer and she sees Chloe Sullivan being kidnapped. Clark must rely on Lana's visions to find and rescue Chloe before she's killed. Meanwhile, Lex Luthor is visited by the despicable reporter Roger Nixon who convinces him to open again the investigation of the mysterious events surrounding the meteor shower of years ago when a witness reveals that something more came down during the meteor shower. Also, Clark ponders making plans to the school's spring formal dance by asking Chloe while Pete also as the same thoughts. Whitney tells Lana that he's thinking about leaving Smallville in the wake of his father's death. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

In previous episodes it is established that Clark and Chloe have known each other for years. However, in this episode Clark states they met in 8th grade. Given that they're freshmen - or possibly sophomores - this season they would have only known each other for a year to a year and a half. See more »

Goofs

Spelling mistake - on an Eddie Cole ad that reporter gives to Lex is spelled "NOTHING TO LARGE, NOTHING TO SMALL" when it should probably be "NOTHING TOO LARGE, NOTHING TOO SMALL". See more »

Quotes

Lex Luthor: I don't like riddles.
Dr. Steven Hamilton: Then this object will make you profoundly unhappy.

Investigating the Past and Disclosing Hidden Secrets
8 April 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

When Lana Lang is hit by a blow of a gas pipeline in the field, she has visions of a criminal and sees Chloe Sullivan being kidnapped. Meanwhile, Lex Luthor is visited by the despicable reporter Roger Nixon (Tom O'Brien) that convinces him to open again the investigation of the mysterious events surrounding the meteor shower of years ago.

"Obscura" presents two different stories at the same time: the one about the power achieved by Lana Lang in her accident, but the most important is the one about the achievement of a piece of Clark Kent's spacecraft by Dr. Steven Hamilton (Joe Morton) in the fields and the investigation of Roger Nixon. I believe the series will take another route along the next episodes. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Oculto" ("Hidden")
