While looking for a birthday gift for Martha at a local jewelry store, Clark intervenes when two thieves try to rob the place using the powerful scream of Nathan Dean (Micah Alberti), a meteor-rock mutant with the ability to project ear-splitting screams. The combination of the scream with a bijouterie of kryptonite deflecting Clark's heat vision back to his face makes Clark blind. Without this sense, his hearing uncontrollably increases. One of the criminals, Masterson (William MacDonald) is arrested. Nathan kidnaps Pete to force his mother, Judge Abigail Ross (Felecia M. Bell), to release Masterson. Meanwhile, the blind Clark listens to a phone conversation between Chloe and Lionel Luthor about Lex and himself. After Clark informs Lex about his father's intentions for them, Chloe is mistakenly taken as Lex's informer and she gets fired from her intern job at the Daily Planet by Lionel. Written by

Did You Know?
While most of filming and exterior shots of buildings were primarily done around the Vancouver area, the exterior shot of the Smallville courthouse is actually of the Massachusetts State House in Boston, Massachusetts. This may have been shot specifically for this episode, or it may have been stock footage from Warner Brothers. See more
