As if Lois Lane didn't make enough of a nuisance of herself now living at the Kent farm, she brings in Einstein, a golden retriever, who is the latest victim to be hit by her car, and she meanly calls him 'Clarky', while Clark, kind as ever, hopes to keep him as a pet if the owner isn't found, which his parents hope. Clark soon finds out it's a surviving dog of an experiment to give canines superpowers with daily injections of steroids mixed with meteorite fragments (kryptonite) produced at LuthorCorp, which Lex insists to Clark that the project was abandoned after animal activist protests, thinking they were all put down. Only later Clark finds out, the hard way, the dog and a Rothweiler are abused by evil Josh Greenfield and his kid brother Zack, who run the Smalville animal shelter and abuse dog whistles to control the super-dogs as weapons for robberies.

After Lois hits the dog, she exits her car and runs to the dog. As she passes the back of the car, her tail lights are off. When she reaches the dog, her tail lights are on. See more »


Lois Lane: [to vet] We call him Clarky.
Clark Kent: We do not call him Clarky.
Lois Lane: Is it the "y" part you don't like? Because, we could always just make it "Clark." But then that would get really confusing, and, hey, maybe you should consider changing your name. You could be "Skipper."

Taking the Chance with Loyalty
7 June 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Two trained and powerful dogs rob Smallville Cooperative under the command of the brothers Zack and Josh Greenfield, but one of them escapes and is hit by Lois Lane's car. She brings the wounded animal to Kent Farm, and Clark Kent finds the secret of the animal and becomes attached to it, while the criminals look for the animal for a next heist. Meanwhile, the mysterious relationship of Lana Lang and the Teague's ancestors is disclosed a little more.

"Krypto" is a reasonable episode of "Smallville". Lionel Luthor is back, and the enigmatic relationship between Countess Margaret Isobel Tharow and Genevieve is becoming interesting. I liked the way Clark tells Lex that he is going to take the chance with Krypto's loyalty. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Krypto – o Supercão" ("Krypto – The Superdog")
