  • A Interesting One

    The episode was simply a old freind of Lex's comes back. She is angry as he likes Lois now and she decides to cause some trouble. She sprays a bunch of the Daily Planet people. Which makes them fall in love who they find atractive. Lois likes clark,as jimmy likes a model and perry likes the cleaning lady. Which was genuis. So they all go to extreme measures to get what they want. Perry sings elvis to the cleaning lady and gets punched by her husband. Jimmy almost got hit by a truck not realzing. Lois does a sexy dance for Clark. Crazy episode. In the end Superman stopped Miranda from spraying the city. Which would of been a disaster. One of my fav lines is Clark. He says elvis never cheated on persilla,perry says he never met her. This was a strange episode yet very cool twist. Another good episode.moreless
