Storyline

Tracking the amnesiac and powerless Kara to Detroit, Lex is shot by Kara's jealous fellow diner employee Finlay, whom now holds both Kara and Lois hostage. When Lex falls into a coma, Lionel helicopter lifts him back to Metropolis and uses his last dose of a drug developed for experimental mind penetration so as to retrieve life-saving information from uncooperative terrorists. The program was abandoned because it wrecked the interrogator's central nerve system, but Clark feels confident his Kryptonian brain must withstand it in order to find Kara. Once he enters Lex's mind, Clark meets the key characters, but Lex is split into his dark side and the young Alexander, a good kid traumatized by his mentally abusive parents heading for divorce, eager to help Clark escape his evil counterpart and desperate for his friendship.

Fracture
19 April 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Clark must enter the mind and memories of Lex in order to find out where Kara and Lois have disappeared to. This is a more surreal episode than we usually see from Smallville. It's essentially an examination of Lex's psyche, with extreme versions of an evil Lex and a young "good" Lex portrayed as characters inside of Lex's mind. Just like in season 3's "Memoria" and season 6's "Reunion" the flashback scenes involving young Lex are dramatic and very effective, particularly the scenes between young Lex and Lionel. "fracture" at times feels more like an episode of Torchwood than Smallville, and the episode is much darker than the rest of the season, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. One just shouldn't expect a fun action story.
