Clark (Tom Welling) stumbles upon a robbery of a
LuthorCorp truck carrying kryptonite and is stunned to realize he can't
stop the thieves because they are as strong as he is. To keep Clark from
going to the police, the thugs attack Jonathan (John Schneider) and
Martha (Annette O'Toole), leaving Clark feeling powerless and desperate
for a way to protect his parents.
Kristin Kreuk, Michael Rosenbaum, Allison Mack, Sam Jones III and John Glover

Zachary Ty Bryan's old "Home Improvement" co-star,
Jonathan Taylor Thomas, appeared in "Smallville" earlier this season (in
"Dichotic") and according to some reports may show up again in season 3.
The first on-screen meeting of Chloe and Lionel.
At the end, why don't the three guys talk about Clark
after they're arrested? They have no incentive to avoid spreading the
news about Clark's special abilities (he used strength, speed, and
heat-vision whereas they only had strength).
Why didn't Clark use his super speed all along? Are we to
assume he just doesn't think about it? Strength is all well and fine, but
speed applied to strength would have sent these guys flying. Does he
really need Jonathan to point out the benefits of using super-speed and
not get his butt kicked?
What does Lana mean she knows about being in the wrong
time and wrong place "metaphorically speaking"? She's been in the wrong
time and place literally speaking at least a dozen times throughout the
So is Donatello Whitney's horse or Lana's? Lana visits it
at the Kents' stable, and he was supposedly keeping Whitney's horse. But
then whatever happened to Lana's horse?
Couldn't Clark have dug the hole (and made it a heck of a
lot deeper) and then had Pete bury the kryptonite vials? Way to make your
buddy work for you...
When Chloe speaks with Lionel, at the end, you can see a
glimpse of the Smallville crew in the mirror.
Does Smallville jail really put a prisoner in an orange
jumpsuit just a day after being arrested? That's more of a
prison/institutional kind of thing, and they haven't put such suits on
Clark and Jonathan when they were arrested in the past.
Doesn't Clark still feel the effects of kryptonite even
if it's under dirt?? Lead is the only thing that blocks the effects and
in the second episode of the first season, "Metamorphosis", there are
meteor rocks under the floor and they still affect Clark.
When Clark hits Lex, Lex is on the phone talking to
someone, when Lex seems to stop in mid sentence and not reply wouldn't
the person who he was talking to alert someone or do something? Perhaps
even cancel the operation?
The bad guys drive off from the crime scene in a bright
yellow SUV which Clark clearly sees - why didn't he report that to the
police? Or are there a lot of neon-yellow SUVs in Smallville?
Clark hits a fence and tells Jonathan it hurts. Not only
does he not really show it, but he's impacted with lots of other stuff
(and had buildings fall on him) and he's never claimed it hurt or
appeared to be in pain.
So...apparently Kryptonite is fatal if ingested in lethal
form (see "Jitters", "Duplicity") but gives super-powers if inhaled
or injected as a tattoo. This doesn't seem to make much sense...
