But she gets accidentally exposed to a meteor-rock gas which gives her the ability to makes people tell the truth whenever she gets in close contact with them, thus exposing their innermost secrets. Chloe uses her new ability to explore her curiosity of journalist, hurting people, including her history teacher, Martha, Lana, and Pete, thus showing the dangerousness of the absolute truth when she attempts to question Lionel about his criminal past, and she gets more suspicious about Clark when she learns that he is the only one immune to her 'truth' powers.
