Flawed, but also Great Episode
2 May 2007 | by Claudio CarvalhoSee all my reviews

The deranged teenager Gabriel Duncan breaks in the control room of a nuclear silo in Smallville, kills the two security guards and starts the launch sequence to send one missile to reach Smallville in one hour. He calls his friend Chloe, who is moving to the university, and asks her to leave the town that he wants to destroy because of the population of meteor freaks. The army does not know which of the sixteen silos might have been broken in by Gabriel. Meanwhile, Clark and Lana sleep together in his room and early in the morning, Lana sneaks out of the house, but Jonathan and Martha see them. When Chloe calls Clark, he plots a simulation of a car accident with Chloe to force Gabriel to disclose his position. When Gabriel meets Chloe, Clark is deadly shot by the insane teenager, dying in the hospital. Lionel Luthor awakes from his catatonic situation in Belle Reve and Clark's body vanishes from the hospital.

"Hidden" is a flawed, but also great episode of "Smallville". The tense story has three huge mistakes: the first one, all the situations that happen within one hour; second, Clark arrives in the hospital with an enormous loss of blood, therefore one of the first procedures would certainly be blood transfusion; his revival would be a motive for a series of examinations, which would be impossible with his powers back. The writer should be more careful in these details. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Oculto" ("Hidden")
