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 »

Jitters anyone?
14 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Another great episode. This was like the hourglass episode as it explored more of the depth of Lex and Clark's character. It really dug into Lex and Lionel's relationship as well with it showing that Lionel has no care for his son at all as he goes into a dangerous situation at his Smallville plant.

Also, many burning questions will have to wait to be answered. What was going on in Level 3 of the plant? Were they spraying meteor fragments on the corn? Why wasn't Lex informed of it? What will become of Earl Jenkins?

I wanted them to show what would become of Earl. I felt it will be the first loose end in this series.
