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'.

Did You Know?


Chloe (Allison Mack) sported a distinctive asymmetric hairstyle, a style Mack had adopted over the summer hiatus. However, it was felt that the look wasn't right for Chloe, so Mack wore extensions for the subsequent few episodes whilst her natural hair grew longer. Mack has often joked that no-one in Smallville appeared to notice Chloe's hair changing length over the course of one episode. See more »

Red Krytonite
17 June 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – 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.
