Quotes

Chloe Sullivan: I know your moral compass has a tendency to veer off course, but taking advantage of Lana when she's at her most vulnerable? It's despicable.
Lex Luthor: I think your reporter's eye is getting a little cloudy. You're starting to see things that aren't there.
Chloe Sullivan: I don't have to work for the DWP to know that there was enough electricity in that room to light up the entire state of Kansas.

Shattered Glasses and Heart
8 July 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

When the foster mother and chief of staff of Martha, Naomi, is brutally murdered, her dumb stepdaughter Maddie stays with Martha and Clark. The girl becomes close to Clark and speaks again, but when she discloses her power of shattering glasses, she becomes the prime suspect of Lois for the death of Naomi and her biological mother. While Clark investigates the origin of Maddie, her powerful father leaves the prison and abducts her. Meanwhile, Chloe witnesses Lex and Lana too close to each other and later she accuses Lex of taking advantage of a vulnerable Lana. Martha assigns Lois as her chief of staff.

In this episode, the treatment of Clark with the wounded little girl is amazing. The debut of Tom Welling as a director is a pleasant episode mostly regarding his relationship with Maddie. The attraction of Lana for Lex is disappointing, even considering that her heart is broken for breaking-up with Clark, since the guy is a despicable villain. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Frágil" ("Fragile")
