Storyline

Lana tells Clark that she is moving to the Metropolis University and she is accepted in the Tri Psi Sorority, a sisterhood with hot vampires led by Buffy Sanders, and Lana is transformed in a vampire. Meanwhile, the chief-editor of The Daily Planet, Pauline Kahn, denies an intern position to Chloe, but in the end she proposes Chloe to write a good story to prove that she might be part of the team of reporters. Meanwhile, Lex intimidates Professor Milton Fine, but in retribution he shows a dossier about the secret experiments that Luthorcorp is performing in the campus of the Kansas University. When Clark sees Lana at Chloe's room, he believes she is with a hangover; later, he goes with Lana to a Halloween costume party promoted by the Tri Psi. When Lana attacks Chloe, Clark discloses the truth about Buffy and her sisterhood of vampires and tries to find a means to save Lana and Chloe when she gets bitten by the evil vamp Lana. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Quotes

Lex Luthor: Interesting lecture you've been giving, professor.
Professor Milton Fine: I hope you've been taking notes.
Lex Luthor: Oh, just the highlights. You've been painting me as the poster child for corporate villainy. Some of the things you say come dangerously close to libel.
Professor Milton Fine: It's only libel if it isn't true.

The sub-plot saves this episode
29 November 2007 | by See all my reviews

A lame temporary storyline of sorority vampires is kept from being bitten in the backside by an intriguing sub-plot involving the increasing rivalry and threats between Lex Luthor and Milton Fine.

Lana applied late to Metropolis University, so the only housing near campus she can hope for is the Tri Psi sorority. Turns out, all of the sorority members are vampires, bitten over time and sworn there forever by Buffy Sanders, a meteor freak who was infected when she was bitten by infected vampire bats, who live in caves with stalactites that are filled with kryptonite. As is tradition, only one girl is initiated into Tri Psi per year, and this girl is Lana, who in turn is transformed into a vampire. She gets sharp fangs, sleeps during the day, parties at night, and drinks others' blood. Blah blah blah.

The cooler part of this episode: Lex learns that Milton Fine is ruining his image in Fine's college class, and discovers that Fine is researching Lex's ethically questionable projects for a book. Lex knows that Fine has Clark as his special assistant for this research. Lex threatens Fine's professor job, while Fine threatens to reveal Lex's projects publicly.

By the end of the episode, the audience has to be asking themselves two questions: "What in the world was the vampire thing all about?" and "Is Fine good or evil? What are his motives?" And are his motives ever so insidious, it's worse than Lex could ever think of doing at this point in his increasingly dark life.
