Storyline

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. Meanwhile, Jason and his secretive and manipulative mother, Genevieve, are revealed to know more about Lex and his apparently ... Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

When asked by a vetenarian what he's going to call the dog, Clark states that he was thinking of calling him "Krypto". First appearing in the 1955 Superboy comics, Krypto is the name of the Kryptonian dog that Jor-El sent to Earth to test the spaceship Clark Kent/Kal-El would take to earth. Krypto a.k.a. Superdog would have the same abilities as Superman and would aid him in his adventures. See more »

Goofs

Genevieve Teague says that Countess Margaret Isobel Thoreaux's heirs were going to wipe out all of Duchess Gertrude's heirs. She then tells Jason that they were Gertrude's ancestors rather than her descendants. See more »

Quotes

Martha Kent: You know, when I was a little girl, we had a dog that looked just like this one. Maybe that's why I liked him so much right away. His name was Shelby.
Lois Lane: I can live with that.
Clark: Well, it beats "Clarky".

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")
