Trivia

Chloe manages to forge the paperwork that shows that Clark is "Joe Fordman", a cop transferring from Coast City. This is almost as impressive as the time she forged Kara Kent's paper trail, which claimed that Kara was Clark's cousin on his adoptive father's side and raised in Minnesota for the past 19 years.

Quotes

Clark Kent: Whoever that is, he can't just operate on Jones.
Oliver Queen: Why? 'Cause he's Martian? I get it, Clark. It's fine. He's in good hands with Emil. Trust me. After I got poisoned, I figured, you know, guys like us, could probably use a specialist on payroll.

View of superheroes from different perspective
28 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Though critics are right in the fact that not much of the season plot moved forward in this episode, the show did serve to reveal more about the overall storyarc, and establish more of Clark's morals. Clark makes an investigation of who might of shot the Martian Manhunter by posing as a cop, only to learn that oftentime the police force has been jealous of the crimefighting pursuits of not just the Green Arrow, but the "red-blue" blur. Clark has the opportunity to see how outsiders occasionally view superheroes. Addiontionlly, Tess Mercer's heart is shattered when she has been used by Lex ever since her life had been spared by him in South America, probably not coincidentally around the first time BrainIAC surfaced on the Earth in a mortal body. The importance of the episode is for Clark to understands more what the world thinks of him and others who possess other meta-physical beings, and to establish the truth of what Lex is using Tess for.
