Yes, we do have to talk about 9/11’s impact on this show again. We can quit when it stops being so omnipresent. And alarming.

As season two kicks off Clark gets boner powers and Pete finally gets a role in the plot, while Dr. Hamilton continues to mosey through his episodes being both inscrutable and delightful. Oh, and Lionel is blind now. It’s handled as tactfully as you’d imagine.
