Quotes

Clark Kent: Why are you so obsessed about my mother? Do I ask you questions about yours?
Chloe Sullivan: No, I guess not.
Clark Kent: Yeah, that's because she hasn't shown her face here in years. If you want to find somebody's mother, find your own.
Chloe Sullivan: [near tears] I know where she is, Clark! The difference is she's not interested in me.

Family Revelations
17 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Similar to "Lineage's" previous episode "Redux," this episode considers family relationships in the main characters' lives.

First, a woman named Rachel Dunleavy arrives in town claiming that Clark is her son. Clearly disillusioned, Lionel is actually helpful to the Kents in proving her crazy and avoiding the potentially dooming DNA test that would have ensued had authorities believed Rachel's story. It is also revealed that Lionel helped the Kents work around the adoption documents to take in Clark- revealing that Lionel is much closer to understanding that there are intriguing mysteries behind Clark's past than anyone would feel comfortable with.

In addition, Lana contacts the man she saw in a photo album with her mother, named Henry Small, to try and inquest whether or not he is her real father.

This is a fabulous episode.
