Storyline

Clark examines a rural hamlet where blue kryptonite in the water has no known negative effects. However when a bell rings, tho local deputy regretfully knocks out the nosy reporter 'at the wrong time and place'. Lois has a car crash nearby and is nursed by an Amish family. Yet when she wants to leave, she discovers their chilling true intention, as the extremely aberrant sect does with one female every year. In the Luthor mansion, Alexander insists to be called Lex and his aging condition requires 'regular' birthday parties. Mercer's plan to give him a cure if the original lex's research allows so is reconsidered as she realizes this clone may be too perfect. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

When Lois is trying to convince the religious fanatics to let her and Clark go, the "bible verse" she quotes is actually from Pulp Fiction, part of Jules's "Ezekiel 25:17" monologue. See more »

Quotes

Tess Mercer: Alexander, it that's what you want... you have a chance to make that happen.
Alexander: How can I ever trust Clark again? He made my father hate me. He took away everything I ever cared about. And the last time I was up here, I begged him to tell me the truth about himself. But as always, he denied who he really was.
Tess Mercer: Clark is not the bad man, Alexander. Lex is. He used you just like he used me. And you don't deserve what's happened. You don't have to buy into his memories. I will help you.
Alexander: Why? So you can...

low of the season
30 October 2010 | by samuel_mortonSee all my reviews

I think I understand the premise of this episode: Clarke without powers in the episode after he proclaims his ability to Lois. What will happen? Although there is something quaint with such a premise, is seemed rather unnecessary. I didn't need a Amish cult to prove that Clarke and Lois love one another sacrificially with or without powers; it has been proved throughout the last two seasons.

The sub plot involving Tess Mercer and young Lex was less compelling than it was confusing. In a series which seems to veer away from fatalism (Clake), the writers seemed quite keen for other characters always to be evil.

In the overall arch of the season so far I felt this was a somewhat an ebb. This is season 10; it is no time for plateau episodes, nor recapping what we already know. Get on with it!
