She steals his security card and breaks in the Luthor Corp. laboratory trying to find evidence.

Quotes

Chloe Sullivan: I guess it's my turn to come clean. When you found me on the bridge, I was on my way here. I was gonna ask your parents all the questions you would never answer. Look, I know "I'm sorry" has become a recurring motif in our relationship, but...
Clark Kent: No, Chloe, uh... Look, I appreciate your honesty, but you weren't yourself.
Chloe Sullivan: I really wish I could believe that. But there have been so many times where my curiosity's gotten the best of me. Maybe this is just who I am.
Clark Kent: No. You're going after the truth. ...

The Dangerousness of the Absolute Truth
16 May 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Chloe Sullivan visits a former friend of her father in Luthor Corp. to know if he is blacklisted, since all his applications are not accepted and he is not able to find a job. She steals his security card and breaks in the Luthor Corp. laboratory trying to find evidences, but she accidentally is exposed to a sort of gas that makes people tell the truth, exposing their innermost secrets. Chloe uses her ability to explore her curiosity of journalist, hurting people and showing the dangerousness of the absolute truth.

"Truth" is a great episode of Smallville, showing the real feelings of many characters. We see a needy Lex Luthor looking for parental love; Martha Kent's fears about Jonathan Kent recent attitudes; Pete Ross's feelings for Chloe; the application of Lana Lang in an art course in Paris; the confirmation of the crime of Lionel Luthor against his parents. It shows also how people in general hide some of their feelings in order of not hurting the others. I recalled Jim Carrey's "Liar Liar", where his character can not lie, getting into troubles. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Verdade" ("Truth")
