Storyline

Metropolis, three months later. Clark Kent (under the influence of the red kryptonite ring) has becomes a criminal, heisting banks, going to night-clubs, and living under the alias 'Kal'. But he comes into conflict with not only his Kryptonian-marked chest, but a ruthless and greedy gangster, named Morgan Edge, who wants an ever increasing percentage of the stolen loot, and also begins to suspect Clark's alien origins. Meanwhile, Lex Luthor is declared dead, but he is living with the weird Louis Leery Jr. in an isolated desert island. Back in Smallville, Dr. Helen Bryce comes to his funeral and meets Lionel Luthor in the mansion where secrets are disclosed. Lana Lang and Jonathan Kent try to bring Clark back to Smalville. Unsucessful after Lana's pleas to Clark, Jonathan makes contact in the cave with the spirit of Jor-El who imbues Jonathan with Kryptonian super-powers to combat Clark and bring him home... in exchange for a price. Also, Chloe enjoys her new job at the Daily Planet, ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Red Krytonite
17 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

I always did love Clark when he had some red krytonite in him. It made him have a backbone & not be as soft as he usually is, but I love him just the same badass or no bad ass.

This time around Lana & Chloe are not as annoying to me. I guess because I have seen the show all the way to the end & I loved how everything worked out.

So crazy how the deal that Jonathan Kent made with Jo-El sealed his fate... I know Clark looks back on his rebellious teenage years & regrets the decision he made this episode.

Also, this episode started Lex's transformation into the dark psychopath he will eventually become.
