Storyline

Lana Lang finds some poems from a secret admirer in the gravestone of her parents in the cemetery. Later, she meets the author, Byron Moore, a weird teenager kept locked by his parents in the basement of their farmhouse. They believe the boy is abused by his parents, but soon they realize that he was the subject of an experiment of a laboratory of Luthor Corp, which made him powerfully evil and super-strong when he comes into contact with sunlight. Meanwhile, Martha Kent is invited to work as the assistant of Lionel Luthor, and she accepts the invitation under the reluctance of Jonathan Kent. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

A Dangerous Alliance
17 September 2007 | by See all my reviews

This fifth episode of Season 2 is surprising because it introduces a partnership that few could have imagined- the pure-loving mother Martha Kent with the evil and twisted mind of billionaire Lionel Luthor.

Of course, Lionel's motives are deeper than just believing that Martha would make a good assistant, and that he wants to help keep the Kent farm, which has been in the family for generations, above water.

In the alternate but temporary storyline, Lana, with Clark, discovers that a boy is kept imprisoned by his parents in their home because of the effects that sunlight has on their child. The boy becomes super-strong with exposure to sunlight radiation, similar to Clark's ability. This was a result of LuthorCorp testing that was investigating the mysterious effects of a mysterious green substance.

This is another solid episode.
