Also, the comatose Lionel Luther ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Quotes

Chloe Sullivan: I wonder who's more freaked out right now. Me, knowing I'm in a hospital where they get their medicine via dogsled... Or you, finally finding out I know your secret.
Clark Kent: How long have you known?
Chloe Sullivan: I guess I've always had my suspicions. The quick exits, the miraculous recoveries, the lame excuses. But I think when I saw you catch a car like it was a beach ball, that kind of confirmed everything.
Clark Kent: Why didn't you say anything?
Chloe Sullivan: I figured if you wanted to tell me you were part of the superpowered ...

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")
