Clark has some weird dreams with the cave and about flying. When he puts the hexagonal key in a hole in the wall of the cave, he immediately learns how to decode the symbols. Then, while waiting for Chloe at the Kents' farm, his uncontrolled vision burns a symbol on the wall of the barn. Chloe publishes the picture in the front page of The Torch, and Clark soon receives an e-mail from a wealthy and prominent scientist from New York. Clark goes to New York and meets the reclusive and quadriplegic Dr. Virgil Swann, who tells Clark about his origins from the planet Krypton, his real birth name of Kal-El. Clark also finds another message in the spaceship which troubles Clark. Elsewhere, Dr. Waldon finds the hexagonal key left behind in the cave and when he puts it in the cave hole, he gets hit with the so-called Kryptonian knowledge which overloads his brain and ends up in coma, which further fuels Lex's suspicions about the cave and Clark. Also, Lana considers moving out of Chloe's house... Written by

Did You Know?
At the end of the episode, inserted between the fading producer credits and the end credits, Tom Welling
and Christopher Reeve
appear in a public service announcement for the 'Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation'. The segment is also present on the DVD-release, but unfortunately sometimes omitted during syndication. Sadly for the viewers since it shows Reeve in a good spirited mood, smiling, and even adding a final ad-libbed punch-line not present on the scripted cue cards, causing the entire crew behind the camera to burst out into a loud laughter. The segment is repeated in the season 3 episode 'Legacy', in which Reeve made his second and last appearance on the show, and final acting appearance altogether, before his death. See more

"We will be with you, Kal-El, for all the days of your life." What does this mean?
Dr. Virgil Swann
I'm not sure, but one thing I've learned about science is the value of patience.

Is that where Krypton is?
Dr. Virgil Swann
No, that's where Krypton was. I followed the signal's path billions of miles out into space. I was hoping to discover its origin but instead, I found nothing.
