When Chloe spots a meteor freak at a bowling alley during Lana's bachelorette party, she follows him only to see him get abducted. Chloe warns Clark and they investigate further. They uncover that one of their high school friends, Tobais Rice, who is blind and has meteor-rock powers, is being used by Lex to help him find meteor-rock infected people to add to his 33.1 facility. Meanwhile, Lana gets strenuously close to discovering Clark's secret. She suspects that Clark is a meteor freak when she thinks that Tobias has targeted him. However, everyone is shocked when Chloe ends up getting abducted for having meteor-rock powers she never knew had. Written by James Foster

Did You Know?


At the beginning of the episode, Chloe's bowling score on the electronic scoreboard is wrong from the 2nd frame through the 8th. See more »


Tobias Rice: Why would you do that for me?
Lana Lang: Because you may be putting someone at risk who saves people's lives on practically a daily basis. I can't let that happen.
Tobias Rice: Who told you about me? Clark Kent?
Lana Lang: Clark was here?
Tobias Rice: You seem surprised.
Lana Lang: Did you tell anyone about him?
Tobias Rice: What's to tell?
Lana Lang: Tobias, it's okay, you can trust me. I know that Clark's infected.
Tobias Rice: You must be talking about a different Clark Kent. Because the Clark I know is the most normal guy I've ever met.

The Unknown Ability of Chloe
12 May 2008 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

While celebrating her bachelorette's party at the bowling with Chloe, Lana is helped by the ability of the meteor freak Daniel Kim. The blind Tobias Rice, who has the ability to identify people infected by the meteor shower, points the teenager to Dr. Robert Bethany. Later, Chloe witnesses the abduction of Daniel by Lex's men in an alley and she tells Clark. However, Daniel returns without any recollection from the kidnapping. Clark discloses that the naive Tobias is helping Dr. Bethany expecting to have a cornea transplant. Meanwhile Lana follows her instincts believing that Clark is a "meteor-freak", while Chloe is kidnapped for having some mysterious power and is tagged with a GPS device beneath her shoulder.

The greatest question after watching this good episode is what is the unknown ability of Chloe? Clark is protected by the poor Tobias, and he is fond to see that Lana tried to protect that he is a meteor freak. The dark Lex Luthor is getting eviler in each show. My vote is seven.
