Notes on Character:
Not much is known of Whitney's early childhood in Smallville. In high school he is the popular quarterback whose is dating the beautiful cheerleader Lana Lang. He is part of the popular crowd in high school that performs the yearly 'hazing' ritual, consisting of hanging one student as a scarecrow in the fields. When the series begins, the unfortunate student is Clark Kent, who is later saved by Lex Luthor. In fact, Clark's best friend Pete Ross joined the school football team just to avoid this hazing. Whitney's father Jack is very ill, and this seriously affects Whitney. Lana slowly finds herself experiencing a change of heart, and her relationship with Whitney starts deteriorating. Finally, Whitney's father dies of a heart condition, and Whitney decides to follow in his dad's footsteps and join the Marines. He and Lana share a heartfelt goodbye.
The following year, krpto-mutant Tina Geer, who had the ability to mould her bones into resembling anyone, developed an obsession with Lana, and transformed herself into looking like Whitney, in order to gain Lana's trust. This did not work, and Clark saved Lana. It was later found out that Whitney had, in fact, died in combat earlier that year.
Director: "Candy from Strangers" (2002).
