Episode recap/comments: This episode is about how circumstances trap people. The villain of the week is a schoolmate of Clark and Chloe's, named Justin who was run over by a large car/SUV half a year ago. Justin has a warped sense of justice as he's a promising artist with disabled hands as a result of the accident. After 6 months of recovery and rehab, Justin returns to school, still with disabled hands, but has developed telekinesis which allows him to move objects with his mind. He and Chloe correspond via email in the time he was in the hospital. He quickly wins over Chloe, much to Clark's dismay. Clark finally realizes that Chloe is attracted to him, and he now finds himself somewhat jealous of Justin. (And as circumstances would have it, Lana is becoming distant/bored with Whitney, while Whitney is trying to renew their relationship by being a better boyfriend now that his father is getting better. Lana has feelings for Clark but she can't do much until she breaks it off with Whitney, and she feels that it's a good time now that his dad is better and recovering. Lana and Clark talk about missed opportunities in love.). Given a clue on the license plate of the car that hit Justin, Chloe's DMV contact produces one viable suspect that leads him to blame Principal Kwan as the person who performed the hit-n-run on him which left him in the state he's in now. Justin confronts Principal Kwan at his home, and proceeds to run Kwan over via telekinesis with the very same car that ran over Justin 6 months ago. Later it is revealed that it was Kwan's son that was driving their family SUV when it hit Justin. The son turned himself into the authorities. Chloe, unnerved by the news, begins preparing an edition of the school newspaper on this unfortunate event with Kwan. At Justin house in his room, Chloe does a bit of snooping, and finds that Justin has a sketchbook detailing his sense of proper justice (his doctor's hands were severed in a "freak" accident caused by Justin, and he illustrated how he killed Kwan as well in the sketchbook. This freaks out Chloe, and she makes up an excuse to get out of Justin's place. She runs to Clark's farm/barn, but he's at the Talon, she tracks him down to let him know that she know that Justin is the one who killed Kwan. Justin tracks down Chloe at the Kent's barn, rips the cell phone away from Chloe in mid-conversation with Clark, and starts throwing Chloe around like a rag doll (the violence is kind of brutal - as was Kwan's death). Clark showed up as Justin is about to kill Chloe with a powered chainsaw, Clark puts his body between the chainsaw and Chloe and chainsaw explodes as it hits Clark's chest. Clark tells Justin that he killed the wrong man, that it was Kwan's son who was responsible for hitting him. Justin is outraged, but Clark simply throws Justin against a wall and knocks him out. The other subplot is the re-appearance of Lex's nanny who left after Lex's mother passed away almost 10 years ago. Lex's never forgave her for her sudden departure from his life. He loved her dearly so many years ago. She comes clean to Lex, telling him that his father sent her away, thinking she was just a clingy type of person only after the Luthor's money. Lex doesn't buy her story and when asked for Lex's forgiveness by her, Lex isn't willing to forgive. The kicker for the nanny is that she's developed terminal cancer and just wanted to make things right before she died. Lex finds this out from his father. Lex goes to the hospital where his nanny has been due to her illness. Lex does find the courage to forgive her, and she tells him how proud she is of the man he is today, Lex is gracious in accepting the assessment, all the while knowing that it's a mask he wears, inside, he's still not as moral he could be, and could've use her guidance in his formative years had she stayed. After settling the Justin mess, Clark and Chloe finally acknowledge that there's something between them, so they decide to give the relationship deal a try. Just when Lana finally strikes up the courage to end her relationship with Whitney, she finds Whitney stumbling into the Talon, white as a ghost. Whitney's father passed away suddenly. Lana bites her tongue, and doesn't pursue breaking up with him right then and there. No, she is trapped by the circumstances, and decided to be the good supportive girlfriend at the funeral for Whitney. She sees Clark in the rain in the cemetary, knowing that she's closing the door on Clark for the time being (probably knowing that Clark and Chloe are now an "item", thus closing off Clark at this time from another angle. Both Clark and Lana sort of acknowledge the state of their non-relationship relationship with a knowing glance between them as the rain falls.
