Storyline

When Clark Kent buys a ruby class ring, the red stone is indeed red kryptonite. When he puts it on, his personality is instantly affected, and the former sweet and friendly teenager becomes dark, selfish and ambitious, hurting his stepparents and his closest friends. He dates Lana Lang, but the rebel Clark dumps her to be with the hot new-arrival in town Jessie Brooks in a night-club. But Jonathan does not give up on him and tries to save Clark from the effects of the red stone with Pete's help. When Clark learns that Jessie and her father are actually fugitives from a witness relocation program pursued by a corrupt federal agent, Clark decides to take matters into his own hands. Elswhere, the blind Lionel becomes more of an annoyance to Lex, forcing him to make some changes. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

In the comics, red kryptonite does not have a consistent affect on Superman. Its effects are completely random and sometimes can be positive. Also, generally speaking, whatever effect the red kryptonite has had it only lasts 24 hours. See more »

Goofs

During the opening scene, behind Jesse you can see the vice principal walk up behind her and reach out as he's about to put his hand on her shoulder, yet the very next shot of Lana, in the background you can see he's just exiting a room. See more »

Definitely the Best Episode of Smallville
22 April 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

When Clark Kent buys a ruby ring, the stone is indeed red kryptonite. His personality is affected, and the former sweet and friendly teenager becomes dark, selfish and ambitious, hurting his stepparents and his closest friends. He dates Lana Lang, but the rebel Clark dumps her to be with the hot new-arrival in town Jessie Brooks (Sara Downing) in a night-club. But Jonathan Kent does not give up on him and tries to save Clark from the effects of the red stone.

"Red" is definitely the best episode of Smallville up to this moment. The modification of the character and personality of Clark Kent leaves wounds in Lana Lang and Jonathan Kent, and I want to see the consequences of his acts in the next episodes. My vote is ten.

Title (Brazil): "Rebeldia" ("Rebellion")
