Storyline

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 Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

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 »

Seeking the Truth, Finding Some Answers
30 April 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Clark Kent has some weird dreams with the Kawatche caves. When he puts the octagonal key in a hole in the wall of the cave, he immediately learns how to decode the symbols. Then, while waiting for Chloe Sullivan in the Kent's 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 receives an e–mail from a wealthy and prominent scientist from New York. He schedules a meeting with Dr. Virgil Swann (Christopher Reeve) and learns about his origins in Krypton.

The greatest attraction is this episode certainly is the participation of the former Superman Christopher Reeve disclosing to Kal-El his origins. The story is basically centered in Clark seeking the truth about his origins, and being partially satisfied with the answers. My vote is nine.
