Storyline

Clark has some weird dreams with the cave and about flying. 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 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 octagonal 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

Christopher Reeve Shine's Forever!!!
10 April 2007 | by See all my reviews

Smallville is my #1 favorite show! Tom Welling as Clark Kent leaves me speechless! I grew up loving Christopher Reeve, watched his movie's, read his book Nothing is Impossible. He is an inspiration to my life. Seeing Christopher on Smallville was unforgettable. Superman Returns sucked!!! I hated that movie!! Brandon Routh bares no resemblance to Christopher Reeve physically or in any other way! Is Brian Singer blind?!!!! Tom Welling on the other hand, I mean, the first episode of Smallville I ever saw, I thought that I was looking at a young Christopher Reeve again! Tom is unmistakably Christohper heir to the cape of the Man of Steel! He is a far better actor than Brandon Routh!!! Routh is Dean Cain's evil twin! I hate Dean Cain too!!! Christopher Reeve's interpretation of Superman was beautiful, and I love the interpretation of Superman in Smallville. It's the story that I never knew about Clark Kent!!! I LOVE IT! I LOVE TOM! I LOVE THE ENTIRE CAST! I LOVE THE THEME SONG!!! I LOVE IT, I LOVE IT, I LOOOOOOOOOVVVVVVVEEEEE IT!!! Christopher Reeve and Tom Welling are inseparable! Screw Brandon Routh! Drop Dead Routh! Christopher Reeve will be forever in my heart! All I have to say to Tom is, SUPERMAN RETURNS!!!! You are Christopher's heir to his best role!!! I LOVE YOU BROTHER, AND GOD BLESSS!!
