Lex Luthor rescues his gambler, estranged, half-brother Lucas from a dangerous situation involving Chinese triad gangsters, and brings him to Smallville to help him in a commercial dispute against their father, Lionel. However, Lucas stays side by side with Lionel in his plans of getting his hands on all of Lex's money to feed his gambling habit. The homeless Lex is lodged by Jonathan and his family, while Clark Kent tries to fix the situation with the crafty Lucas before he can carry out his plan to rip off the Luther fortune. But who is playing who? Meanwhile, Clark asks Chloe to put a good word for him to get a job at The Talon which is then bought by Lucas, and Lional reveals that he has regained his eyesight but does not inform anyone.

When Lucas is 'signing' Lionel's buyout agreement, Lucas places the pool cue onto the table with his left hand. When the shot changes, he makes the motion to switch the pool cue to his left hand from his right, and the sound of him placing the cue on the table can be heard a second time. See more
Do you remember the fable of the frog and the scorpion, Lex?
Yeah, dad. The, uh, frog helped the scorpion across the river. The scorpion repaid his kindness by stinging the frog.
"Why did you do it?", the dying frog asked him. And the scorpion replied "Because it is my nature." Believe me, Lex, your brother will never change. I've watched him over the years. The boy's a sociopath.
And I wonder which side of the family tree he got that from.
