A little darker
14 September 2007 | by Rcwilkinson123See all my reviews

Smallville's 19th episode gets a tad bit darker with the meteor freak Justin Gaines.

Justin is a student from Smallville High who loves to draw. However, he can no longer use his hands to do such a hobby, since they became dysfunctional after getting hit by a car. He is able to draw with his mind, however. For the second time in Season 1, Chloe has another love interest in Justin. Unfortunately for her, they are still guys who are mentally unstable with their mutations. It turns out that the driver of the car was Principal Kwan, as Justin avenges him. Clark's gotta stop this guy.

In addition, Whitney asks Lana if they can revisit their relationship. This comes right after Lex has given Lana extra grants on the Talon to keep the shop open after Lex had bought it from Lana's aunt.
