Storyline

In 1604, in southern France, Lana Lang's distant ancestor Countess Margaret Isabel Thoreau and two other evil witches are condemned to be burned at the stake by Magistrate Wilkins, but Isabel manages to spit her blood on a symbol on a page of their mighty book of spells. In the present day, Lana buys the book on eBay, and by touching the blood-spotted symbol, resurrects the evil countess who possesses her body. Isabel/Lana uses a spell to let the other two witches posses Chloe and Lois. The powerful trio vows to pursue its quest for the three (actually Kryptonian) magical stones which can bring them unseen power. The trio enters a 'surprise' birthday party for Chloe in the barn of the Kent Farm and Isabel throws a spell to make the spectacle really hot, so Clark is one of many boys dancing and drinking in boxer-shorts when his appointment arrives, a representative from Princeton University, who is impressed in a way which can't amuse Clark's parents. The vicious witches cast spells ... Written by KGF Vissers

Clark Kent: Lois, we can't do this tonight. The guy from Princeton's coming to meet me. Besides, my parents are out of town.
Lois Lane: Relax, Smallville. It's just gonna be a couple of people standing around singing "Happy Birthday". It's not gonna be Sodom and Gomorrah. Mr. Ivy League won't even know we're here. Trust me.

Absolutely Dumb
5 December 2007 | by Rcwilkinson123See all my reviews

This episode is way stupid. It goes like this: Lana has an ancient ancestor named Countess Margaret Isabel Thoreau who was burned at the stake, along with two other women, on the count of being witches in the 1200s. However, the evil Countess is not done wrecking havoc yet. She and the other two witches take over Lana, Chloe and Lois' bodies with the intent of partying, hurting Clark, and taking control of the town and beyond.

The only important thing to take out of this episode is that Lex tells Lana that it was him who got Jason Teague fired from the high school, not Clark. It is apparent that the real reason Lex got Jason fired is because he believes that Jason has ulterior motives for being around Lana and Clark, besides the fact that she has a relationship with a student.

This episode is ridiculous, inappropriate, and way lame. It is one of the worst episodes of an otherwise fantastic series.
