Storyline

Lionel Luthor is shot twice in the Luthor's mansion by an unknown assailant. When Jonathan Kent is found drunk, with a pistol in one hand and a bottle of tequila in the other hand sleeping in his truck, he becomes the prime suspect of the attempt. All the evidences point to him, but Clark believes in his innocence and tries to prove that his father did not shoot Lionel. Clark and Pete team up to investigate leads Lionel had, and learns that the conspiracy to frame Jonathan goes back to the town sheriff. Meanwhile, Lex deals with his father's associate, Dominic Senatori, who thinks Lex was the culprit who shot Lionel, but Lex thinks Dominic is the guilty one. Meanwhile, Lana asks Chloe to investigate Henry Small after he refuses to take Jonathan's case. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Who did it?
19 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Lionel Luthor, blind and not able to see who is entering his mansion, is shot twice in the back by the intruder. A great mystery ensures as to who did the shooting. Jonathan is a prime suspect after being found drunk in his truck near the mansion. Many other suspects ensue, though no one could have predicted who the real culprit is.

This episode is interesting because of the investigation, but the writers cheated in not giving the audience any clues to find out who the real shooter was. This dampened the revelation at the end since the audience couldn't have possibly guessed correctly who it was due to the writers shortcomings.
