Storyline

In a high school party nearby a frozen lake with kryptonite at the bottom, arrogant football player Sean Kelvin has an accident and drowns under the ice. However, he mysteriously survives with the power and need of taking the heat of other people and freezing things. Meanwhile, the Kents have financial difficulties and need a loan to save their farm, and Lex Luthor invites them for a meeting at his mansion and offers the necessary money in a lower interest rate to the reluctant Jonathan. Sean freezes and kills his girlfriend Jenna Barnum, and invites Chloe Sullivan to date him with the intention to use her body heat for his own survival. Clark, who is going to a Radiohead concert with Lana, quits the date to save his friend first, and his stepparents later, while the jilted and angry Lana returns to the arms of her boyfriend Whitney. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

When Clark is about ask Lana to concert, Lana is seen reading a book at the coffee shop. The book was Doctor Zhivago written by the Russian author Boris Pasternak. One of the themes of the novel is loneliness, which aptly reflects the mood Lana was in, before Clark asked her out for the concert. See more »

Goofs

When Whitney is about to run down Sean, the rear window of Whitney's vehicle appears to be smashed before they leave the road and crash the car. However, the window is not smashed - it has water droplets on it giving it a shimmer, just like the driver's door window. See more »

Sean Is Not Cool!
14 March 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In a high school party nearby a frozen river with kryptonite in the bottom, the arrogant football player Sean Kelvin (Michael Coristine) has an accident and drowns under the ice. However, he mysteriously survives with the power and need of taking the heat of other people and freeze things. Meanwhile, the Kents have financial difficulties and need a loan to save their farm, and Lex Luthor invites them for a meeting and offers the necessary money in a lower interest rate to the reluctant Jonathan Kent. Sean freezes and kills his girlfriend Jenna Barnum (Tania Saulnier), and invites Chloe Sullivan to date him with the intention to use her heat for his own survival. Clark Kent, who is going to a Radiohead concert with Lana Lang, quits the date to save his friend.

"Cool" is another great episode of this excellent TV series. This well written episode shows again a very charming cast, a great cinematography and music score and also fantastic special effects with the power of Sean. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Encontros" ("Dates")
