Storyline

Kara desperately wants to make friends and fit in on Earth, but Clark tells her to keep a low profile until she can get her powers under control. Despite his warnings, when Smallville's annual "Miss Sweet Corn" beauty pageant comes around, Kara signs up and meets the competition; Tyler, Carly, and Tempest, three meteor-infected vixens who plan to use their powers to steal a treasure map to the hidden Smallville time capsule. Meanwhile, Lana returns to Smallville and wants to re-start whatever romance she had with Clark. In Metropolis, Agent Carter interrogates Lex in his further search for Kara's missing spaceship, while Chloe and Jimmy clash with the vain and egotistical Grant over the developing story in Smallville.

Mainly an Eye-Candy Presentation, thats all

This episode had less to do with Clark- and now Kara's- story than with giving Kara Zor-El actress Laura Vandervoort screen time to display her body, along with a couple of other women. A couple of other plot points keep this episode afloat, however.

Kara is desperate to fit in. To do this, she enters the Miss Sweet Corn Beauty Pageant. However, also in the pageant are three kryptonite-infected vixens, two of which see Kara display her superhuman strength power to save Jimmy Olsen from freezing in his car. They use Kara to help them obtain a Smallville treasure map located inside the town's time capsule. However, Kara double-crosses them, since they were so brutally mean to her already. In the meantime, Lex figures that Kara is the "angel" who saved him from death, and confronts her about that.

The plot point involving Lex thinking that Kara is the "angel" is what gives this episode any purpose. However, when Lex has to say a line involving not only being saved from death by Kara but also "from his evil ways," obviously Lex actor Michael Rosenbaum, who is usually the best actor on the show, didn't buy it, because he acted it so flatly that it was corny. The "vixens" were an annoyance. But it's good to have Kara "Kent" in the show.
