Friendship and Betrayal
22 May 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

While visiting Lana in Metropolis, Clark opens a package addressed to Lana apparently sent by Lex Luthor and is wounded and infected by a splinter of silver kryptonite meteor. Clark has paranoid delusions, and sees Chloe, Jonathan, Martha, Lana and Lex plotting against him. He defends himself against his "enemies", jeopardizing the lives of his dearest friends and family.

In "Splinter", Clark feels the side effects of the silver kryptonite, becoming paranoid and dangerous. The mysterious Professor Milton Fine uses his powers to save Clark, but the ambiguous conclusion, associated to his class about friendship and the betrayal through the examples of Cesar / Brutus and Jesus / Judas, questions his real intentions with Clark. Meanwhile the real intentions why Lex discloses the spaceship to Lana are also not revealed. Am I also paranoid? My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Paranóico" ("Paranoid")
