Searching the Origins
23 April 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The disturbed Rachel Dunleavy (Blair Brown) arrives in Smallvile claiming that Clark Kent is her biological son with Lionel Luthor, therefore brother of Lex Luthor. She asks for a DNA examination, jeopardizing the Kent. Meanwhile, Lana Lang visits Henry Small (Patrick Cassidy) trying to find whether he is her biological father.

"Lineage" is another great episode of Smallville, showing a search of the origins of Clark Kent and Lana Lang. In a certain moment, the situation seems to be in a check-mate for the Kent family, but in the end the plot resolves. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Em Busca das Origens" ("Searching the Origins")
