When Clark finds the hard drive hidden in the safe and removes it, the cover of the drive has clearly been removed, exposing the reading arm and disks. The internal components of a hard drive are very sensitive and, if opened up needs to be handled in a dust free clean room otherwise a speck of dust or a bit of moisture could ruin the drive. The ISIS room and safe would be covered in dust and debris, yet Chloe manages to link the drive to her computer and accesses the date without a problem or, apparent concern. She even covers the side with the spinning discs with the palm of her hand as she plugs it in, leaving it vulnerable to the static electricity around her body. See more »


Lana Lang: I didn't put the suit on for protection. I did it so that I could actually do some good in the world. You are an amazing woman, Tess. But it's hard to see when you're stuck in the dark shadow of an even darker man.
Tess Mercer: Why do you think I want Lex gone?
Lana Lang: You may have gotten rid of the microchip... but every second that you're consumed by hate is another second Lex is still in control of you. Don't be a victim anymore.

After Lana goes missing, Clark finds Tess in the Talon's apartment, and demands answers from her. We see what exactly happened to Lana after she woke from the "coma" Brainiac put her in.

Not as exciting as it sounds. "Power" is not only by far the worst episode of Smallville's otherwise strong 8th season, but one of the worst episodes of the show. Period. Lana is the main character in this. Not Clark. Not even Chloe. Lana. And the episode suffers dearly for it. A boring, sometimes hypocritical filler episode that makes Clark be a wuss around Lana - again - after progressing drastically in this season. Remember when Clark and Lois nearly kissed in "Bride"? Because I bet you Clark doesn't even remember Lois (Neither does Chloe, apparently).

Tess is the only good part of the episode, and she wasn't even that good. We are lucky Lana leaves in the next episode.

As for Allison Mack's directorial debut, she did the best with what material she was given.
