Storyline

Clark discloses the Fortress of Solitude, his origin and abilities to Lana and proposes her. Clark tells Chloe that he has revealed his secret to Lana and Jonathan Kent wins the election to the Senate. But the happiest day of Clark ends when Lana dies in a car accident, and he summons the spirit of Jor-El and forces him to revert time. The unexpected price Clark pays to restore Lana's life is a complete new tragedy for his family when Jonathan takes her place after he has a meeting with Lionel over his campaign, and that Lionel knows more about Clark then he claims to. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The 100th, and the ending
18 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First of all, what is the name of the song used at the end of the episode, and who sings it? I thought that the way the episode went it was good. It was one of the better episodes that has been done on the show in my opinion. The twists and turns that go throughout are much better than the one-dimension that many of the previous episodes fall under. You definitely have to pay attention during the episode, it is not like some where you can pop in a few minutes in and understand what is going on, it just does not happen in this one. It also dives into serious emotions that people can relate to. This is definitely one of my favorite episodes that was put out there by the series, it hits on so much. The emotional output by the actors is some of their best yet. If you enjoy the show, this will be one your favorites.
