The CW's Official Description:
Clark (Tom Welling) is forced to use his powers in front
of Alicia (Sarah Carter, Black Sash), a new girl at school, but he is
surprised to find out she has powers of her own. The two develop a bond
through their shared secret, but things turn ugly after Alicia becomes
obsessive about sharing Clark with anyone else - especially Lana (Kristin
Kreuk). Meanwhile, Lana asks Lex (Michael Rosenbaum) to investigate Adam
(guest star Ian Somerhalder).
Allison Mack, Sam Jones III,
John Glover, Annette O'Toole and John Schneider also star. James
Marshall directed the episode written by Holly Harold.
Clark Kent (Tom Welling) and
Chloe Sullivan (Allison Mack) are on
a field trip with their Economics class to visit LuthorCorp. Lionel Luthor (John Glover) is there to give them a
brief introduction, and tells them a little about individuality and
knowing when to break the rules. Both Clark and Chloe seem bored, and
Chloe even seems uncomfortable with Lionel's speech. She makes a
sarcastic comment that Lionel overhears, and asks her if she has a
question, she doesn't answer. Lionel ends his talk and the group move on.
As Chloe and Clark are walking away, Lionel walks up to them and tells
them that it's nice to see them again, and that he is glad to know that
they are looking to the future. Chloe and Clark catch up with the group
who is taking the elevator down. As Chloe enters the elevator, she
sarcastically tells Clark, "Welcome to the Lionel Luthor exhibit. Next
floor, victims, sycophants and hatchet-men". The teacher doesn't allow
Clark to get into the elevator with them, saying "How about I split up
this jaded little fan club. Mr. Kent take the next cart".
As the door closes, Alicia Baker shows up next to Clark, she's obviously
also missed the elevator. As they wait for the next elevator, Clark tries
to act smart, saying "Elevators, too much demand, not enough supply".
Alicia tries very hard not to laugh, and doesn't respond. They get into
the elevator. Clark presses the button for the lobby, the door shuts but
nothing seems to happen, the elevator remains on the 39th floor. Then, a
bell rings, and the elevator crashes down at full speed. Both Clark and
Alicia are thrown to the ground. Clark takes a second to think what to
do. He notices the security camera in the elevator, and burns it out with
his heat vision. The elevator is crashing fast, and Alicia is screaming.
But she realizes that his stare caused the camera to burn. Clark then
punches a whole through the elevator wall, and grabs onto the rail that
the elevator is sliding down. It takes a few seconds for the elevator to
halt to a stop as Clark is holding on to the rail. Alicia is shocked, and
asks him what Clark just did. Clark, still struggling to hold onto the
rail, begs her not to tell anyone what she just saw. At that moment, the
doors start being pried open, and a voice from a LuthorCorp security
informs them that they are trying to get them out, that it won't be long.
Clark and Alicia realize that it wouldn't be long before security finds
out how the elevator is being suspended on the 19th floor. Without a
word, Alicia steps up to Clark, puts her hand on his shoulder, and they
both shimmer away. Since Clark lets go of the rail, the elevator crashes
down to the bottom, at the same time as Alicia and Clark reappear in the
lobby. Clark is shocked and asks Alicia what she just did. She tells him
that she knows he didn't want to get caught, and she wanted to help. She
is interrupted by LuthorCorp security and the rest of the class running
up to them, shocked and bewildered at what happened. She begs him not to
tell anybody now that he knows her secret. The teacher asks them if
they're ok, and Chloe wanders how it happened. Clark says he doesn't know
more than that they managed to get out before the cable broke.
Alicia is walking to school, and Clark catches up with her. He
thanks her for saving his life the day before, and she confesses that
it's actually a relief to be able to share her ability with someone. "Is
that what it takes to be friends with you?" asks Clark. "I guess I
deserved that", she answers, but admits that she's really not as stuck up
as everybody makes her out to be. She explains that she just doesn't want
to get close to anyone, in case they found out about her and thought she
was a freak. She feels it's better to be alone, even if it means that
people think she's a snob. She explains that her abilities only started
with the meteor shower, and she explains she can teleport herself and
anything she touches, "anything I wanna take with me", she says, smiling
coyly at Clark. She asks him if his ability started at the same time.
"Everything is pretty much related to the meteor shower, right?", he
answers in a round about way. They are obviously very attracted to each
other, and even when the bell rings for class, they find it hard to walk
away from each other. She tells him she can't believe that he's like her,
and he tells her he understands what she means. He watches her walk away.
Lana Lang (Kristin Kreuk) walks
up to the apartment above The Talon and opens the door with a spare key.
She calls out for Adam Knight (Ian Somerhalder),
but he is not there. She starts searching the apartment. Under one of the
shelves, she finds Adam's diary. At that moment, Adam walks in and asks
her what she is doing. She asks him about the diary, but he says he wants
it back, that it is private. She won't give it back and reads from it.
Everyday seems to be an entry about Lana and Clark's whereabouts and
interactions. She demands to know why Adam's been spying on them, but he
tells her she's no better, snooping in his apartment. She tells him that
first he threatens her, then he spies on her, and that she won't stand
for it, that she wants him to leave. He responds that tenant laws are not
that simple, that she can't just evict him, and that he's not going
Clark finds Alicia in the physics lab, and asks her if she wants to
work on a paper with him. She answers by asking him out on a date, which
he promptly accepts. They are both shy and obviously very attracted to
each other. On his way out of the lab, Clark bumps into Lana who wonders
why he is smiling so much. She tells him about Adam's journal, and admits
she thinks it's more about Clark than her. She tells him that he
shouldn't worry though, because she is going to get Adam evicted. At that
moment, Alicia walks out of the physics lab and walks past them, stopping
to tell Clark that she will see him at seven, smiles at Lana and walks
off. When Lana, amused, looks inquisitively at Clark, he gives her a lame
excuse about them being in the same class, obviously very upset that Lana
should find out that way.
Alicia and Clark are both in his barn, looking through his telescope
at the stars. She impressed him with her knowledge of astronomy. She
admits to being a science geek. Clark sizes her up and responds, "You
don't look like one". She asks him about how he managed to burn the
security camera in the elevator and he tells her about his heat vision.
She asks whether he's ever told Lana about what he can do, and he
explains that no, that was one of the issues of they're relationship,
that he could never be completely honest with Lana. "Like you are with
me?", asks Alicia. She tells him that she had once liked this boy, but
that he had freaked out when he found out what Alicia could do. Clark
tells her not to worry about what others think. Clark drives Alicia back
to her house. As he is walking her to her door, she admits that her
parents are very protective of her, and don't truly understand everything
about her abilities. She starts telling him that they even tried to stop
her from using her abilities, but doesn't tell Clark how they tried to
stop her. Clark explains that his parents, on the other hand, are great,
extremely supportive and very concerned. They get really close and are
about to kiss, but Clark pulls away, and they both giggle it off. She
goes inside the house, and he walks backwards down the steps and nearly
trips and he watches her go in. As he gets into his truck, we see that
Alicia has teleported from the front door to her bedroom window where she
can observe Clark drive off.
Clark is in his bed, sleeping (bare-chested, of course...), when
Alicia suddenly appears sitting on his bed, not wearing a lot more... She
startles Clark who knocks over his alarm clock with a big thump. She
tells him she didn't want to startle him, she just wanted to surprise
him. She tells him that she knows he wanted to kiss her earlier, and that
he should just do it. They get very close.. and well, you're gonna have
to watch the scene for yourself... Suffice it to say that they have their
hands all over each other, when Jonathan Kent (John Schneider) walks in, wondering
what the thump was and if Clark had fallen out of his bed. He is shocked
to find his son in a very "indecent" situation.
As Clark is walking down the stairs (he's dressed now), he hears
Jonathan and Martha Kent (Annette
O'Toole) discussing boundaries and limitations. Clark arrives in the
kitchen and informs her parents that Alicia is gone. "What'd she do
Clark, climb out the window?", asks Jonathan. "Actually, she teleported
out", answers Clark. He tells his parents everything, and that Alicia
knows about his strength and about his heat vision. Clark however,
defends himself by saying that he didn't tell her about getting sick
around meteor rocks. He explains that he feels really comfortable around
her, that they're a lot alike and that he thinks he has found someone he
can actually have a relationship with. Suddenly, we see that Alicia has
been listening at the door all along and has heard everything. She seems
very happy to hear about Clark's enthusiasm for her.
Back at school, Pete Ross (Sam Jones
III) tells Clark that Alicia's been spreading the word all over
school about Jonathan busting them in his room. Pete thinks it's awesome
and Clark seems happy by this reaction. He opens his locker and is
shocked to find Alicia's re-decorated it with pictures of her all over.
She walks up to him and asks him if he likes them. "Oh, I... I do..." he
stutters, but tells her that they may be moving a little too fast. He
tells her that he thinks that maybe they should be setting some
boundaries and limitations. "We're special Clark. People like us don't
have boundaries and limitations", she answers. She holds him close and
kisses him, calling him "sweetie" and "gorgeous", and tells him she'll be
thinking about him.
Lex Luthor (Michael Rosenbaum)
gives Clark some friendly advice about the situation Clark is in. He
hints to Clark that maybe Clark did something to encourage Alicia's
behavior. He wonders what Clark must have done that was so impressive
that she would develop that type of obsession for him. Clark asks Lex
what to do.
Clark shows up at Alicia's house. Mrs. Baker seems delighted to see
Clark. Mr. Baker also welcomes Clark. As he walks into their
kitchen, Clark sees all the trophies that Alicia seems to have won. They
tell Clark that Alicia is not here, but that they are thrilled to know
that she is dating "such a nice young man". Clark tries to explain that
they are not dating, but Mrs. Baker tells Clark that Alicia is special
and that if she thinks Clark is her boyfriend he should just go along
with it. He tells them he knows about Alicia's abilities. He asks them
how they kept her from teleporting. Mr. Baker tells Clark that they used
to keep her in a special room. Mrs. Baker then goes on to explain that
Alicia begged them to let her out, and promised not to abuse of her
powers, but now they never know where she is or what she will do. Clark
x-rays the house and noticed a room with walls made of lead. Mrs. Baker begs Clark to go along with Alicia. Clark walks out, and, as
Mr. Baker is closing the door, he tells Clark that there was another boy
that Alicia liked a lot, and that it didn't end well, and that Clark
should be careful. As Mr. Baker closes the door, we see Alicia standing
right there. She walks up to her father, saying, in a threatening voice,
"You shouldn't have said that Daddy".
Lana and Lex are in The Talon, and Lana has obviously asked Lex to
help her with the Adam situation. He is glad she called him and tells her
that he trusts her instincts. She tells him about the journal. He tells
her that he will take care of Adam, but she tells him that she looked
into tenant laws, and that it can take up to six months to get rid of
him, and that she can't wait that long. "Believe me, there are definitely
ways of getting rid of someone a lot faster than that", answers Lex.
Clark arrives back in his loft to find that Alicia has re-decorated.
She's added a picture of herself in a frame on his desk, but flowers and
candles all around. Then he notices something strange in the Smallville
Yearbook that is left open on the desk at the page where Lana signed
Clark's book. Alicia has used scissors to cross out Lana's face on the
yearbook. Suddenly, Alicia's standing right behind him. She says that her
parents told her he wanted to see her. He asks her why she's redecorated,
and she answers, "I thought you'd like what I've done to the loft. It's
more us now". She explains what she did to the yearbook by saying that
she knows he used to go out with Lana, but that it's time to move on. He
tells her that there is no "us", but she won't listen, telling them how
special they are, how they belong together and that the proof is that he
didn't tell Lana his secret, he told her. Suddenly she gets a call on her
cellpone, and she informs Clark that her father is in hospital, that he
has fallen down the stairs. She doesn't seem to upset about it.
They arrive at the hospital, where Alicia's father is unconscious and
on a respirator. Alicia seems distraught and hides in Clark's arms.
Sheriff Adams (Camille
Mitchell) shows up and asks to speak to Alicia. She informs Alicia
that they think there was an assailant, that Mr. Baker was hit on the
head, and that he was found in the basement that had been locked from the
inside. Alicia starts to cry and keeps hugging Clark, but Clark is not
buying it and asks her straight out if she did this. She tells him that
she did it for them, because her father was trying to keep them apart. He
tells her that she needs to talk to the sheriff, but she teleports away
before he can catch her.
Clark gets home, only to find Alicia waiting in the kitchen. Martha is
in the back, setting the table. Alicia tells Clark that Martha asked her
to stay for dinner, and that she's just trying to get to know his family.
Clark tells her that she needs to turn herself in. She angrily chops a
cabbage in half, and tells Clark that he is her boyfriend and that he
should be protecting her like she protected him. She threatens him to
give away his secret or to hurt his family, and then disappears.
Clark has told Chloe about Alicia's obsession and her ability. Chloe
reminds Clark that one of Alicia's weakness is Clark himself. Clark
realizes he knows her other weakness, and has a plan, and he asks Chloe
to help him.
Chloe shows up at the Bakers'. She pretends to look distraught and
asks Mrs. Baker where Alicia is, because Alicia's boyfriend Clark is in
trouble. Alicia shows up from behind her mother, and asks Chloe to
explain. Chloe tells Alicia that the sheriff suspects Clark of having
something to do with Mr. Baker's accident. Mrs. Baker is about to say
something but Alicia shuts her up. Chloe explains that the sheriff has a
theory that Clark was upset with Mr. Baker for not allowing Alicia and
Clark to see each other. Alicia asks if Clark is under arrest. Chloe says
that no, he's hiding out, and that he told Chloe to get Alicia, claiming
that Alicia is his only chance. She seems happy to know that Clark is
finally needing her, and asks where he is.
Alicia goes to the boiler room of the school where Clark is hiding
out. He runs to her and is happy to see her, but tells her that he needs
her help, that she has to give herself up to save him, because the
sheriff suspects that he did it. She tells him that she can't give
herself up, but that they can run away together. He tells her she's
right, that it is the only way. She seems really happy, so he tells her
he has an idea, takes her hand and tells her to come with him. He
pretends that he is about to take her back up the stairs, but then hears
a noise, and tells her they should hide. He pushes her into a
lead-painted room, where lead paint pots are still lying around. She asks
him if he is trying to trap her like her parents did. She keeps repeating
that they are meant for each other, but he won't listen. Suddenly, she
pulls out a meteor rock, and Clark falls to the ground. She kisses him
before she leaves, explaining that once she gets Lana out of the way,
they will be great together. She leaves him lying there and walks out.
Lana is taking the trash out behind The Talon when she finds Alicia
standing right in front of her. Alicia threatens her with a knife and
demands to know what is so special about her that Clark can't get over
her. Lana doesn't understand. She runs away and back into The Talon, only
to find herself face-to-face with Alicia again. Lana tries to tell Alicia
that there is nothing going on between herself and Clark, but Alicia
informs Lana that Clark is still in love with Lana. She also tells Lana
that Clark told her his secret, the things that he wouldn't tell Lana.
She then pushes Lana against a pillar, and Lana falls unconscious to the
Clark is still lying there, unable to move due to the meteor rock
lying next to him. Suddenly, he notices the pot of lead paint by his
feet, and manages to knock it over to spill over the rock. He then
superspeeds out of the room to The Talon.
Clark arrives at The Talon just as Alicia is kneeling over Lana to
kill her with a knife. He calls out to Alicia who turns around. Clark
throws a lead paint can at Alicia, and as it reaches Alicia he uses his
heat vision to burst the can open. The lead paint falls all over Alicia,
which means she is unable to teleport anywhere. He runs to Lana who is
just coming to and holds her tight. "Why Clark, why?", cries Alicia.
Lana comes to see Clark to thank him. She inquires about what the
secrets where that he seems to have told Alicia. He tells Lana that
Alicia said a lot of crazy things. "She also said that you were still in
love with me. But that was crazy too, right?", asks Lana. "Right", lies
Clark. They are interrupted by Martha welcoming Lana in, but Lana is
upset and says she has to leave. Martha tells Clark that one day, he will
find the person that is right for him. He explains that for a while, he
thought it was Lana, but that he could never be honest with her, and then
he thought it was Alicia, because they were alike. Martha tells Clark
that he is special. "Maybe that means I'll always be alone".
Lana walks in to the apartment above The Talon, and is startled to
find Lex there. She notices that all Adam's things are gone, and she is
delighted. She thanks Lex, but he tells her that he can't take credit for
this, that his security people have been unable to track Adam down. They
both wonder then, where Adam could be.
We see Adam, at the end of a long, dark lab, strapped down to a chair.
Lionel walks in, switches on the lights, and puts surgical gloves on. He
tells Adam that he had hired Adam to get become Lana's best friend and to
find out everything she knew about Clark. But instead, he has alienated
her. Dr. Lia Teng (Françoise
Yip) walks in, informing Lionel that she has his medication. Lionel
tells her that it will no longer be necessary, because Adam is no longer
a participant in their research program. But Dr. Teng tells Lionel that
Adam will die without the serum. Lionel walks out, and Dr. Teng follows
him out. Adam is left struggling to get out of the chair, begging for

Once again the Kryptonite doesn't affect Clark until it's pulled out.
It happened several other times with Pete, Clark's dad, and others. Does
everyone have lead lined pockets?
When Lana was reading Adam's diary, the dates she announced were
different than the dates provided by the Closed Captioning.
The message that Lana wrote in the Smallville Yearbook last year was:
"Best memories this year spent cramming at The Talon with the gang.
Thanks CS, CK, PR, LL for always sticking by me. You guys are the best.
Can't wait for summer, relaxing at Crater Lake, riding through the
fields, and of course, NO homework! Everyone come visit me at The Talon
for some iced coffee and other summer drinks! I'll see the rest of you in
the fall! Take care everyone!" Of course those initials stand for Chloe
Sullivan, Clark Kent, Pete Ross and Lex Luthor. Over that, Lana had
signed Clark's yearbook and written: "To Clark. The boy next door who
became so much more. xoxo Love Lana"
So the elevator first crashed from the 39th floor and stopped at the
19th floor, since Clark was holding onto the rail. There LuthorCorp
security tries to pry the doors open. But then Clark lets go of the rail,
since Alicia teleports them down to the lobby (we know it's the lobby
since the rest of the class is there, it may even be a floor below since
the class is seen running down a few steps). So wouldn't LuthorCorp
security wonder how, one second they're holding on for dear life on the
19th floor, and the next second, the cart is pulverized to the basement
and Clark and Alicia are safe and sound in the lobby? Surely Lionel would
have wanted an explanation of the elevator malfunction and found
something a little odd about this, which would have peeked his curiosity
about Clark further.
In the same way, when Chloe asks them if they're ok, Clark answers
that yes, they managed to get out before the elevator crashed. That could
only mean that they would have gotten out either all the way up on the
39th floor or when Clark temporarily stopped the elevator on the 19th
floor. If Chloe understood by that, that they had gotten out on the 39th
floor before the elevator even began moving, then how does she explain
them standing in the lobby seconds later (she didn't necessarily know
that the elevator had had a pit stop on the 19th floor). If Clark was
trying to say that they got out on the 19th floor, then LuthorCorp
security would deny that, since they were standing there trying to get
Aren't there any cameras in the lobby? That would get Alicia and Clark
on tape as they teleported there?
When Clark and Alicia are walking to school the day after the accident
you can see mountains in the background.
Clark is smart enough to burn out the security camera in the elevator
- why didn't he do that at the asylum in "Asylum"
when he was rescuing Lex? At least we never saw him do it.
When the teacher tells Clark to take the next elevator, she only
addresses him, she obviously hadn't seen Alicia who arrives a second
after the elevator door has shut. This strange, because there seems to
have been enough room for just Clark to get into that first elevator with
the others. Also, it seems unlikely that the teacher would have left
Clark on his own on a school trip to take the next elevator, just for the
sake of ending his conversation with Chloe.
Alicia asks if Clark is ready for a boring, complicated physics
explanation for her powers - he says he is and she says, "Basically, the
meteor shower affected my body and allowed me to teleport myself." Did
she really think that was boring and complicated?
