Storyline

Clark and Pete apply to community work in an institute for the aged to be close to Lana Lang who's also volunteering there. Clark's favorite patient is Cassandra Carver, a blind old lady that foretells the future, and who realizes that Clark is not from this world. Lana takes care of Harry Bollston, an unknown former murder. When Harry falls in a lake full of kryptonite nearby the institution, he becomes young again. The young Harry Volk then seeks revenge against the descendants of the members of the jury that sentenced him in the past by killing them. One of these descendants is Jonathan Kent. Meanwhile, Lex approaches Cassandra to ask her information about Clark, and she has a vision of disaster involving Lex. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Quotes

[first lines]
Pete Ross: Man, I don't know how I let you talk me into this.
Clark Kent: Every Smallville High student needs to complete 30 hours of community service.
Pete Ross: Yeah, but we could have served our community by lifeguarding a girls' swim class instead of hanging out with the denture crowd. I mean, what's the attraction?
[Lana comes into the picture]
Lana Lang: Hi, Clark, Pete.
Clark Kent: Lana. I didn't know you were volunteering here.
Pete Ross: Yeah, right.

The Future Enemy of Mankind
15 March 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Clark Kent applies to community work in an institute for the aged to be close to Lana Lang. Clark's favorite patient is Cassandra Carver (Jackie Burroughs), an old lady that foretells the future. Lana takes care of Harry Bollston (George Murdock), an unknown former murder. When Harry falls in a lake full of kryptonite nearby the institution, he becomes younger again. The young Harry Volk (Eric Christian Olsen) revenges the descendants of the members of the jury that sentenced him in the past trying to kill them. One of these descendants is Jonathan Kent.

"Hourglass" is a reasonable episode of "Smallville", but not my favorite. The story has some flaws, like for example how the Kents could explain the death of old Harry Bollston in a pit for corn. However, the scene when Cassandra Carver sees the future of Lex Luthor is very impressive. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Destino" ("Fate")
