Antagonists: Lex Luthor and Winslow Schott
Winslow Schott, the "Toyman", was a former employee of Queen Industries who was hired by Lex to kill Oliver. He planted a bomb at the LuthorCorp Plaza, but Oliver was only hurt and survived. Schott then tied Oliver to his bed in the hospital and placed a bomb hidden in a toy in his room. Oliver could free himself and used the toy bomb to kill Lex so that Schott was blamed for the murder.
Trivia: Lex tells Clark and Lana: "Do you know what people remember about the greatest star-crossed romances? Not how the lovers met, but the way the relationship tragically ended...." One other example would be William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, which ends with the lovers committing suicide.
