Detailed Description:

By Nadine

Freak of the Week: Sam Phalen (Cameron Dye) is a detective of the Metropolis Police Department. His is the first episode villain to not have supernatural powers. He is just a corrupt cop, who witnesses Clark Kent (Tom Welling) saving a man from being run over by a bus, using his powers. He discusses Clark with Lex Luthor (Michael Rosenbaum) and gets Lex curious about Clark again, but doesn't reveal that he knows about Clark's powers. Phalen continues investigating Clark, and finds that he has been present at the scene of many accidents. He then blackmails Clark into helping him with his illegal police tactics. Clark agrees for a while, and when he tries to get back at Phalen, the detective frames Jonathan Kent (John Schneider) for a crime. Finally, as Clark is setting Phalen up for a museum theft, the cop gets killed in a shootout. The charges against Jonathan are dropped.

Character Development: Chloe Sullivan (Allison Mack) writes an article for the school newspaper about the connection between the meteor shower and the weird things that have happened in Smallville. Principal Kwan (Hiro Kanagawa) is not happy with the article and fires her. Lana Lang (Kristin Kreuk), who speaks to the Principal to defend Chloe gets hired instead. This causes an argument between Lana and Chloe, who believes that Lana got the job in order to get closer to Clark. Lana, however, proves to Chloe that this is not true, firstly by letting her ghost-write using Lana's name, and also by speaking to the Principal and getting Chloe re-hired. The girls agree to be friends, and that they both only have friendship feelings for Clark.
When Clark visit's the museum, it is his first time in Metropolis. Lana is also there with her aunt Nell Potter (Sarah-Jane Redmond) and Whitney Fordman (Eric Johnson), so is Lex with a visiting old flame old flame, Victoria Hardwick (Kelly Brook). Lex tells Clark that he should watch out for Whitney, using the great line: "Keep your friends close and your quarterback closer".
Lex asks Victoria what she wants from him, and she explains that she is working for her father, Sir Harry Hardwick, who is a rival of Lionel Luthor's (John Glover). She is here to try and convince Lex to work for her father at taking LuthorCorp over. Instead, Lex suggests that they both work together at acquiring both companies, but also agrees to look over her father's proposal.
Lex's starts wondering about Clark's secret, after having spoken to Phalen. At the end of the episode, we see him reviewing the security camera from the museum, where Clark used his supersonic speed. Lex spots the quick "shadow" that appears for a second on the video, and is left wondering...

How was Clark's dad finally released? The guy that set him up was dead, are we supposed to assume that it somehow got cleared up because of that?
Where did Lex get the video of Clark running through the museum? Hadn't all the cameras been disabled?
