It's Hard Not to Shed a Tear
6 February 2015 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

I have memories of this episode from way back. It involves a little blind girl whose family has split due to the great guilt of her father, who was the driver during an accident which caused the girl's condition. The girl lives with her mother and enters a contest that would involve a trip around the world for the winner. But she uses her mother's name and wins. This is counter to the intent of the contest. When Clark and Lois visit, they find out about all the extenuating circumstances. Also, the little girl is adamant that there was nothing in the contest about who got to go around the world. She also makes it clear that she has not belief in Superman, hat he is a myth. This is heartbreaking on so many levels and the show really plays it nicely. The mother is portrayed as guilt ridden herself and the little girl is quite believable in her role. One of the better episodes. One question, doesn't it get a little cold at around 30,000 feet, not to mention the lack of oxygen. Just saying.
