Quotes

Clark: Dominic told me you got in a fight with your father before he got shot. Why didn't you tell the police?
Lex: So you're implying I pulled the trigger?
Clark: It's not like I haven't seen you shot someone before.
Lex: Get out of here before you say something you'll really regret.
Clark: I'm not going anywhere, not until I get some answers. Are you trying to frame my dad?

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.
