Storyline

Lana Lang visits an elderly and sick man that has been in prison for more than 40 years accused of killing his beloved wife. He shows the picture of the suspect that resembles Clark Kent in an old newspaper and convinces Lana of his innocence. Clark Kent, through flashbacks, revives the passage of the a young stranger, named Joe, who may have been the young Jor-El in 1961 Smallville, and his affair with the old prisoner's wife (with Lana playing the young wife Louise). Clark begins to suspect that someone else may have committed the crime which leads to the corrupt Mayor Tate. Elsewhere, Lex suspects his father of deceiving him of the family past after seeing some of his family references are false. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Jonathan Was Found, not Clark
4 May 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Lana Lang visits an ancient and sick man that has been in prison for more than forty years accused of killing his beloved wife. He shows the picture of the suspect that resembles Clark Kent in an old newspaper and convinces Lana of his innocence. Clark Kent, through flashbacks, revives the passage of Jor-El through Smallville and his affair with the old prisoner's wife, and sees how and who committed the crime.

The successful series "Lost" uses the same presentation of "Relic", i.e., many flashbacks. I did not like this confused episode, since the story is very inconsistent and unfair. The conclusion that Jonathan did not find Clark, but was found by Jor-El indeed is the most relevant event of this episode. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Relíquia" ("Relic")
