Storyline

When Lana is attacked in her apartment and Jason in his car by an invisible being, everyone believes that Alicia Baker was responsible, except Clark. However after a series of circumstances, Clark begins to doubt Alicia's innocence to the mysterious attacks. Alicia tells Clark that she'll offer to prove her innocence if Clark reveals his own superpowers, but Clark refuses. So, Alicia secretly shows Chloe the abilities of Clark, expecting people to leave them both alone. But elsewhere, Lois discovers that the real culprit of the attacks is the deranged Tim Westcott who's jealous of Alicia's abilities which leads to him murdering her, and then goes after Clark. Meanwhile, Genevieve Teague arrives back in Smallville and approaches Lex Luthor to get his help to separate her son Jason from Lana. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Quotes

Chloe Sullivan: Lois, if you found out something, something someone didn't want you to know about them, would you tell them?
Lois Lane: That depends. Is that person someone you care about?
Chloe Sullivan: Yeah.
Lois Lane: And does keeping the secret hurt anyone?
Chloe Sullivan: No.
Lois Lane: Then my answer is no. If I really cared about that person, I wouldn't tell them that I knew. But I would go out of my way to be supportive of them so that hopefully, one day, they would be comfortable enough to tell me themselves.

Alicia's death is not tragic
13 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Feeling sorry that someone has died is one thing. However, not every death can be qualified as a tragedy. With that said, a girl that forces the future hero of mankind to elope with her in Las Vegas dies, it's not as sad as a death should be.

Lana is attacked while she is in the shower; everybody, particularly Lana's boyfriend Jason Teague, blames her, and rightfully so, since Alicia takes Lana in the previous episode 'Unsafe.' In addition, Alicia faces trouble when a meteor freak jealous of her teleportation power is after her. Clark also suspects that Alicia attacked Lana again, and wants her to turn herself in to the police station. Alicia says she will if they both publicly confess their powers. Clark refuses, for good reasons, and in Alicia's anger she exposes someone to a secret that has gone to great lengths to be kept hidden.

This episode was refreshing compared to the last one. Alicia's despicable acts involving Clark's lives are paid for, while another one of her despicable acts in this episode proves to make for an interesting storyline in upcoming episodes.
