Story of revealing and almost revealing of secrets.Great confidant Chloe
25 March 2008 | by sharpcourseSee all my reviews

I've always known Chloe to be the evenly good girl that is portrayed by Allison mack(permit me to start with this)but in this episode,she nailed it.

1st off,I'd go over the story.Linda lake is a very nosy overzealous,cynical and very very FREAKY top columnist at the daily planet.She goes over to write a very bad story on Lana Lang after overhearing her conversation with Chloe.They both now decide to do a private investigation on this columnist but the tables are turned:Lana almost discovers Clark's secret.

Meanwhile after a secret rendezvous between Lois and Jimmy Olsen and a little photo deal,Lois discovers (or rather becomes very suspicious)that "Ollie is the Green Arrow".She tells Clark this and Clark Decides he wants to help a friend keep his secret,posing as the green arrow and saving Lois in an alley(a scene which sees Clark finally kiss Lois),only for Oliver to appear in the middle thereby convincing Lois that GR was an impostor.On seeing the photo shots and hearing the story from Jimmy, Chloe figures out that Ollie really is the Green arrow(being the Fort Knox of secrets that she is),she knows that its Clark who knows the Green arrow's secret that helped Oliver pull this off.

Tom welling's directing is very remarkable in this episode.In fact,I loved this the most in the sixth season.Especially the scene where Chloe invites Clark over 2 hear Lois talk about her kiss with the Green arrow.Allison Mac really knows how to get it done,being in the middle of everything.

This episode could really have been named secrets because of the almost unraveling of secrets that is involved in this one.
