Opening the Heart, Damaging Relationships
8 May 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

On the Valentine's Day, Clark and Lois are alone with broken hearts and meet each other in a party in The Talon. A woman in a stand offers a red-colored lipstick made of red kryptonite to Lois telling her that she would fall in love for the first guy she put her eyes on. When Lois sees Clark, she has a crush on him and full of desire, she kisses him. Clark is affected by the red kryptonite transferred through her lips and crashes Lex and Lana's engagement dinner party with Lois; he tells his true feelings to Lois, Martha, Chloe and Lana, and kidnaps Lana, opening his heart and damaging relationships.

The episode "Crimson" seems to be a plot point in the whole "Smallville" series. The "bad Clark" affected by the red kryptonite spoils his relationship with his mother and girl friends, inclusive the romance of Chloe and Jimmy. How his reckless speech will affect Martha, Chloe, Lana and Lois in future? The mystery about Lana's baby is intriguing with the last line of Lex to her doctor, but this episode has a huge flaw. How could a wrench or spanner be bent by a regular man without superpower hitting Clark? My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Carmim" ("Crimson")
