Storyline

Former Luthor Corp employee Earl Jenkins, and who also worked at the Kent farm, has an unknown disease that violently shakes all his body. He arrives at the Kent farm during a party Clark throws while his parents are out of town and claims that the disease developed following an explosion at his former workplace: Level 3 of Luthor's Smallville plant which was experimenting with meteor-rock laced fertilizer. Trouble is, there is no Level 3! Determined to prove his case, Earl breaks into the plant and takes a class touring the plant hostage. Lex arrives with the police and trades himself for the hostages, while Clark stays behind to try to help Lex and find out more about 'Level 3' which Lex claims to know nothing about. But Lionel apparently knows about the mysterious secret underground level when he arrives with his personal goon army determined to keep the secret experiment under wraps... at the expense of anyone, even his own son Lex. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

The fourth episode to be filmed. "Jitters" was originally slated to run as the second episode. However, because of constant changes and retooling to the script it kept getting put back in the schedule. This explains why the episode had three directors - Michael W. Watkins, Greg Beeman and Philip Sgriccia. See more »

The Legacy of Lex Luthor
17 March 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The former employee of the Luthor Corporation, Earl Jenkins (Tonny Todd), has an unknown disease that violently shakes all his body, and claims that it was contracted in an inexistent Level 3 of the plant. He accidentally kills a man, and kidnaps Clark Kent's high school class during a visit to the plant, trying to contact Lionel Luthor (John Glover) and prove his assertion.

In my opinion, "Jitters" is the best episode of "Smallville" up to now. The last scene of this dramatic episode is very touching, when Lex Luthor, my favorite character of this series, observes close to his own father the reaction of the Kent family when Clark Kent returns safe and sound to their arms. My vote is ten.

Title (Brazil): "No Limite" ("In the Limit")
