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

Quotes

Clark Kent: [reading Kryptonian] "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.
[Clark notices a picture of outer space on the wall with an area circled]
Clark Kent: 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.
Clark Kent: Planets just don't disappear. What do you think happened ...

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.
