"Brainwave" is in the comics but this is a new version? Lana trying to kill Chloe does not seem to disturb the school authorities.
The first mention of Chloe's cousin, Lois Lane. We see inside the Daily Planet. Clark has really messed Lana up so Adam has a struggle.
There is more continuity of characters that have been introduced in this series. Lex wants his forgotten months back. That will mean remembering that Clark is not human.The series moves imperceptibly towards the ultimate conflict between Lex and Clark.
