Magnetic-Clark is suspicious when Lana suddenly becomes attracted to a fellow student and begins to act rebelliously, which eventually lands her in jail. Clark's suspicions are confirmed when he discovers Lana's new boyfriend has magnetic powers that can move objects and alter human emotions, but when he tries to free Lana from the paranormal hold that is controlling her, she tries to kill him. Meanwhile, Lex discovers Chloe has been delving into Lionel's past and tries to get her to join forces against his dad.
After a string of great episodes since the premeire, Smallville runs into it's first bad episode of the season and of course, it's focused around Lana and her newest meteor of the freak stalker. There's nothing remotely interesting or life threating about Seth Nelson and his Magento-inspired power as he can control metal. Kevin Zegers just bores in the role and doesn't make any impression showing that his different from any other meteor freaks. The most lame aspect of his power to control Lana by just touching because...wow...opposites attract like a magnet! Kristin Kreuk is unbearably bad throughout as she plays Seth's bad girl. I mean Lana, bad?...never! This is one of the few times where you just can't wait until Clark saves the day so the whole episode can be over already.
But it's actually not all bad, I like the development that Lex asks Chloe to help him take down Lionel. It's a great team up as they are about to get the truth of Lionel's murder of his parents which continues to imress as a storyline. All and All, Despite a brilliant sub-plot, "Magnetic" is sub-par and a funless filler!
