Lionel Luthor is shot in Lex's manor – and Jonathan is found with a bottle of booze and the murder weapon, and Lana witnessed him arguing with Lionel. He's not the only suspect, though – Lionel's assistant Dominic claims Lex had motive and opportunity, Lex claims Dominic is responsible, and Chloe suspects Lana's father Henry Small. When Clark starts asking questions someone tries to kill him. It turns out the murderer is . . . Sheriff Ethan, who set up Jonathan and then shot Lionel because Lionel was blackmailing him into digging up blackmail info on Lex's LexCorp board members.
