Storyline

Machinations are revealed
27 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Lana's future doom needs to be solved, and the complete truth behind the relationship of Lionel Luthor and Adam Knight, is revealed in the terrific episode "Crisis."

Clark goes with Pete to work at the teen hotline when he receives a call from the future from Lana, where she is running away from a man with a gun. Everybody, including Clark's parents, works to solve the mysterious problem and prevent it from truly happening. However, it is inevitable. Turns out, the man after Lana is Adam, who is desperately searching for the serum that will keep him from dying- again.

This episode is full of dramatic excellence, since something that has already happened in the future is trying to be solved in the present. The audience finally completely sees what Adam's purpose in the town was, and how it is connected to Lionel Luthor- indeed, Lionel was using Adam to spy on Clark Kent, and though Adam dies again, his obsession with finding out who Clark really is will not stop.
