Storyline

When the foster mother and chief of staff of Martha's, Naomi, is brutally murdered, her adopted daughter, Maddie stays with Martha and Clark. The girl becomes close to Clark and speaks for the first time in years. But when she discloses her power to shatter glass, she becomes the prime suspect for the death of Naomi and her biological mother after Lois voices her suspicions to it. While Clark investigates the origin of Maddie, her powerful father, who also has the same ability, breaks out of prison and abducts her. Meanwhile, Chloe witnesses Lex and Lana too close to each other, and later she accuses Lex of taking advantage of the vulnerable Lana. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Clark Kent: Hey, Maddie, what you drawing?
[no response from Maddie]
Clark Kent: You're quite the artist, aren't you?
[still no response]
Clark Kent: You know, I'm an artist too. What, you don't believe me? All right, well, I'll just have to prove it to you then. Now, prepare yourself, because this is gonna be a self-portrait. You might not be able to tell the difference between this and an actual photograph.

Fragile
16 October 2006 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I really did like this episode. Emily Hurst, (Maddie), was a good actress. In my opinion TW did a VERY good job directing this, I mean it was a LITTLE shaky but good enough for me! I loved seeing how Clark's softer more calm side come out. It was like all the weight of the world wasn't on his shoulders. I've heard, (from sources), that Tom Welling is GREAT with kids and I think it really showed.

This episode was good and should've put a smile on everybody's face. I hope that Smallville keeps up it's good run and see more loving episodes like this in the future... not that I don't love them all... I have them all!

Thanks
