Storyline

While on the roof of the barn, Jonathan is contacted though the octagonal key and Clark saves him from a fall. Clark goes to the Kawatche caves with the key trying to find an explanation for what happened, when Lionel Luthor unexpectedly appears and expresses his suspicion towards Clark. Lionel goes to New York and secretly meets with Dr. Virgil Swann and proposes an association to investigate Clark. Meanwhile, the FBI is revealed to have bugs in Lex's mansion for a surveillance to obtain evidence against Lionel, and Clark becomes a suspect due to the interest of Lionel in the apparently simple "farm boy". Later, agents, led by Frank Loder, arrive at the Kent farm to search it for the missing octagonal key, leading Clark to mistakenly believe that Dr. Swann betrayed him to Lionel. Meanwhile, Lana cannot seem to make up her mind whether she wants to stay with Clark or not. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Quotes

Clark Kent: Dad? You okay? Mom and I have been worried sick about you. You can't just take off like that.
Jonathan Kent: How'd you know to find me out here?
Clark Kent: When I'm searching for answers, I turn to my dad. I guess it runs in the family.
Jonathan Kent: Your grandfather was the stubbornest man I ever knew. And believe me, Clark, I wasn't nearly the son you are. My mother used to say that he and I were like watching two sides of the same coin, duking it out. And I see the way you and Jor-El fight, and I wonder if maybe fathers and sons ...

Boring and Pointless Episode
15 May 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

While in the roof of the barn, Jonathan Kent is contacted though the octagonal key and Clark Kent saves him from a fall. Clark goes to the Kawatche caves with the key trying to find an explanation for what happened, when Lionel Luthor unexpectedly appears. Lionel Luthor meets Dr. Virgil Swann (Christopher Reeves) and proposes an association to investigate Clark. The FBI bugs Lex to make a surveillance and get evidences against Lionel Luhtor, and Clark becomes a suspect due to the interest of Lionel in an apparently simple "farm boy". Lana Lang does not decide whether she wants to stay with Clark or not.

I found "Legacy" a boring and pointless episode, with many inconsistent situations spread everywhere and none of them satisfactorily resolved. The romance of the mumbling crybaby Lana Lang and Clark Kent is very irritating. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Legado" ("Legacy")
