Lana lures Aethyr and Nam-Ek to the Luther mansion to try to stop them, and Clark arrives just in time to save Lana and trap the Kryptonian criminals in the so-called Phantom Zone, but Jor-El removes his abilities to punish Kal-El for not committing with his promise. Also, the comatose Lionel Luther ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Quotes

Clark Kent: [inside the Fortress of Solitude] I thought Krypton was destroyed.
Jor-El: It was, but here in your Fortress of Solitude, the geography of our planet has been replicated for your training.
Clark Kent: I know there's a lot I can learn from you, but I have to get home. That's where I'm needed.
Jor-El: The meteor shower is only the precursor. A dark force from Krypton has been awakened, Kal-El, and its sights have been set on Earth.

Losing the Abilities and Revelations
29 April 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Together with the meteor shower, two evil super powerful Kryptonians beings, Aethyr and Nam-Ek, arrive in Smallville looking for Kal-El. Clark Kent is transported with Chloe from the Kawatche caves to the Artic and the Fortress of Solitude is built in the ice. Jor-El begins to educate Clark, but when he sees Chloes needing help, Clark stops the class and promises Jor-El to return until the sunset. Chloe discloses to Clark that she knows his secret. Lois Lane helps Jonathan to rescue Martha from the debris of their house. Lana lures Aethyr and Nam-Ek, and Clark arrives just in time in the Luthor's mansion to save Lana and trap the Kryptonians in the Ghost Zone, but Jor-El removes his abilities to punish Kal-El for not committing with his promise.

"Arrival" is a great conclusion for the last episode of the Fourth Season. Clark Kent, without his powers, finally confess his love to Lana. Chloe reveals that she knows his secret and Luthor steals the alien spacecraft. The beginning of the Fifth Season is promising. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Chegada" ("Arrival")
