Trivia

During the conversation between Lionel and Lex, there are quite a few quotes exchanged between them. The quotes were from the famous war book 'Art of War' by Sun Tzu, which happens to be Lex's present from Lionel when he turned fourteen. See more »

Quotes

Lionel Luthor: Despite your intense studies, it seems Jonathan Kent, after yesterday's theatrics, has surged ahead of you in the polls.
Lex Luthor: I didn't have anything to do with that.
Lionel Luthor: No, no, of course you didn't. But it looks as though your disciples tried to follow in your footsteps. They have succeeded in creating quite a mess. How does it feel, Lex, to have people worship you?
Lex Luthor: Being the idol for a cult of psychopaths isn't exactly a power trip, dad.
Lionel Luthor: No, but I suppose being a state senator would be. Isn't that why...

Crazed Lex fan goes to great lengths
1 December 2007 | by Rcwilkinson123See all my reviews

Sometimes political races can get desperate, insane and dirty. And that's how a crazy Lex Luthor supporter, the president of "Students for Lex" at Central Kansas U., gets in this tenth episode.

Lex Luthor is campaigning when he speaks to the group at his mansion. Going by his saying of "go the extra ten miles" and "do whatever it takes to win," the students go after Lex's opposer Jonathan Kent to effectively give Lex the seat. The president goes even further than her fellow supporters would like, to radical lengths of support of Lex, when she learns that Jonathan survived their attack. Clark must stop her and an attempted assassination of his father at Jonathan's main rally meeting.

This is a pretty exciting episode. It is not at all a weak episode, definitely worth watching, while not one of the three or four best of the season thus far. It is interesting to see more of the increasingly heating Senate race between a man who steps further and further into darkness against a man who is the father of his former best, and only, friend.
