John Glover doesn't appear in this episode.
Pete has only one line in this episode, barely even one
scene, and they are both interrupted by the sheriff.
A trailer for season 3 aired after the 9/3/03 rerun of
Concerning the hotel room and the sheriff wanting a
warrant - some thought no warrant is necessary. Here is apparently the
current law - if the hotel room is currently occupied, it is considered a
temporary residence, subject to the same 4th Amendment protections as
your permanent home. So yes, police must either wait for a warrant to
enter the hotel room or get consent to search from the "resident." If,
however, the room has been vacated, if the customer has checked out, then
the police may obtain consent to search from the hotel manager, owner,
So...couldn't Andrew sue Lana now? It seems to be
relatively common knowledge that she has been training (note that Chloe
knows it, and doesn't seem to be one for keeping secrets) and Andrew
could claim he was already injured so she could attack him more easily.
And the sheriff is already bugging Clark even though he supposedly attack
a tougher (bunch) of opponents.
When Lex is at the hospital after Helen got attacked,
there is a blood stain on his shirt. During the train scene, which takes
place right after it, that blood stain is gone.
How did the sheriff find Lex and Clark? They were the
only ones that knew where to look for Paul - there seemed to be no way
she could track Paul or them to the train station, but the sheriff and
seemingly all of her deputies are there.
Lex tells Lana she always felt safe in the Talon...but
Tina attacked her there in "Visage". There was
also a mysterious fire or two in "Heat".
Even given that she kinda saw Clark throw Andy a good
long distance into her car, does the Sheriff really think Clark decided
to pick a fight with three older and (apparently) stronger guys? Or if
she really does believe Clark is that strong and doesn't have a mark on
him, she doesn't seem very suspicious of how he did manage to beat up
three guys. Wouldn't they run a blood or urine test for PCP and discover
Actually, the reason that the sheriff is dismissing
Lana's case has nothing to do with "hearsay," as Lana claims. That
typically refers to testimony from a third party as to statements made,
and Lana was the one being assaulted. Her problem is that there were no
witnesses to the event.
Lana seems kinda surprised at the thought of Lex being
vulnerable - apparently nobody's told her about all the times he's been
kidnapped, drugged, knocked out, gagged, and bound.
Given the times he's put his team of lawyers on Clark's problems, why
doesn't Lex offer to help him with the lawsuit?
The closed captioning says the Sheriff yells for
whoever's in the hotel room to come out, but on-screen she doesn't say
anything and just bursts into the room. The former would be correct
The train car has window instructions on it in four
languages, including French and Chinese. You're not likely to see that in
a Kansas train station although you would in Vancouver, Canada (where the
show is shot).
At the end Lex tells Helen he's not fighting Paul's
insanity plea. Ummm, it would be the prosecuting attorney that would
fight any pleas - Lex or any of his or Helen's lawyers would have nothing
to do with challenging Paul's plea.
One gets the impression the Sheriff isn't trying too hard
here. A local businesswoman hits the silent alarm. Dr. Bryce can testify
the three college kids were drinking and making lewd comments (which
wouldn't be hearsay). Clark can testify they attacked Lana (he shows up
just as Lana hits the floor). If the Sheriff was doing her job she should
have administered blood-alcohol tests and determine they'd had a lot to
drink. It's not the best case in the world but it hardly seems worthy of
casual dismissal either.
So is the guy's name Andrew (or Andy) Connors, or Andrew
Arthur. Because on the papers that Clark was holding (about Andy suing
him) It said Andrew Connors, but on the official
Smallville Torch website, in an article written by Chloe, she writes
his name as Andy Arthur.
