There's one rather big plot hole in Smallville season 5: Episode 7 - Splinter.

There's some really bad writing that doesn't make sense. Read on and I'll explain.

OK... So in Splinter... Here's wha happened....

A Silver meteor rock was sent to Lana, which claimed to be from Lex. However, Lex said he didn't send it.

Later on when it made Clark paranoid, everyone thought Lex was responsible for sending it, even though we (the audience) know it was Milton Fine A.K.A Braniac who sent it.

However, there's a gap in logic here. It wouldn't make a whole lot sense for it to be Lex.
Firstly, if Lex sent the rock and didn't want anyone to know he did, why would he sign his name? It doesn't make any sense. Lex is a smart guy. He wouldn't be so sloppy as to sign his name on something that he didn't want anyone to know he sent.
Secondly, what reason would he have for sending it? There's no way he could possibly know that it would make Clark paranoid is there?
Thirdly, Lana seems to think Lex sent it to break her and Clark up. But come on!! How is making Clark paranoid going to do this? It's just going to make him a threat to Lana and to him.

While, I did enjoy the episode, this whole thing makes no sense whatsoever! Why does everyone think it was Lex? What reason would there be? Am I missing something? I there a reason why it could be Lex? Can someone exlplain the logic behind everyone thinking it was Lex, because it just doesn't make any sense to me!

Well making Clark paranoid would of been a good way to break them up. They thought it was Lex because that was the only thing that made sense to them with the information they had. They knew Lex had an obsession with meteors, etc.

But if Lex had sent it theres no way he'd sign it. It could have been better written.
