He will Rule the World! (?)
9 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Many events prepare for the Season finale in this 22nd episode of the second "Smallville" season.

Dr. Frederick Walden, who was induced with Kryptonian knowledge like Clark midway through the season because was also downloaded with the alien knowledge in the cave, escapes a mental institution and repeats "the day is coming..." while later writing "the last son will rule the world!" Unfortunately, Lionel hears this news and suspects Clark due to his own personal investigation of the caves. Meanwhile, Lex prepares his wedding with Helen. He asks Clark to be his best man, and the Kent parents to fill in for his own. Also, Lionel offers Chloe Sullivan her dream opportunity: the chance to be an intern at the Daily Planet, IF she spies on Clark and reveals secrets to Lionel. Betrayal fill this exciting episode.

This episode is the second part of three fabulous episode to conclude the second season.
