Just as Clark and Lana are making progress and he finally sums up enough courage to ask Lana out on a date to a local festival, an old flame rekindles when Lana's former beau, Whitney Fordman, returns from the Marines to make up for lost time. But something is wrong with Whitney for he isn't himself, and Clark sets off to find out what's wrong and why Whitney doesn't remember some things. But the big twist is that the real Whitney was killed in action in Indonesia, and that the meteor-rock shape shifter Tina Greer (from the 'X-Ray' episode) is impersonating Whitney to get romantically close to Lana. Soon, Clark finds himself in a bind then Tina traps and immobilizes Clark in his storm cellar tied up with Lana's kryptonite necklace, until help comes from of all things... the spaceship. Meanwhile, Lex confronts Helen Bryce about her employment with Lionel and questions her motives for being in Smallville. Written by fonzdaman

Could it really be Whitney?
19 September 2007 | by See all my reviews

Great news has hit Smallville, and particularly Lana's heart: Whitney Fordman has returned from fighting in the Middle East as a Marine and wants to reunite with Lana. However, Whitney is acting a little strange. He is acting really compulsive and possessive of Lana. Turns out, there may be more than meets the eye.

In addition, Lex begins to question the motives for which Helen is getting closer to him, similar to how he questioned his last woman Victoria.

This episode is really mysterious, and ends with a surprising and exciting conclusion.
