Storyline

While in Metropolis with Clark, Jonathan Kent is saved from an uncontrolled truck by a very fast teenager, Bart Allen (who will later become the superhero, 'The Flash'), who also pickpockets his wallet. When they arrive back in Kent Farm, Bart is there waiting for Clark where he confides in Bart the Flash about his powers. Bart and Clark become fast friends while Clark tries to persuade Bart to give up his quick and easy life of crime before it gets him in real trouble. Meanwhile, Lex Luthor buys a worthy manuscript with inscriptions in kryptonian, and he shows the unique document to Clark. But when Bart the Flash finds out, he decides to steal it to sell to a powerful mobster willing to pay a huge sum for the artifact. Also, Lana discloses the secret of her tattoo to her boyfriend Jason. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

When Clark breaks into Bart Allen's hotel room and goes through his wallet, he sees 3 IDs: Jay Garrick, Barry Allen, and Wally West. These were/are names of all the Flashes. Jay Garrick is the original WWII-era Flash (who sometimes watches over Bart), Barry Allen was the pre-80's Flash who died in "Crisis on Infinite Earths"(and Bart's grandfather), and Wally West was the Flash during the 2nd Crisis (and Bart's official guardian). Bart Allen himself has been known as Impulse, Kid Flash, and the Flash. See more »

After the truck jumps on the sidewalk you can see the ramp they used to get the truck onto the curb. See more »

Quotes

Clark: I saw you save my dad from that truck this morning.
Bart Allen: Man, nobody sees me when I'm doing my thing.
Clark: Maybe you're not the only one who can move like that...
[reading names from ID cards]
Clark: Jay Garrick, Barry Allen, Wally West, whatever your name really is.
Bart Allen: It's Bart. Not that matters because I'll be a thousand miles away before you can even blink.
Clark: I don't know. I can blink pretty fast.

A Fast Episode
25 May 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

While in Metropolis with Clark Kent, Jonathan Kent is saved from an uncontrolled lorry by a very fast teenager, Bart Allen (Kyle Gallner), who also pickpockets his wallet. When they arrive back in Kent Farm, Bart is there waiting for Clark. Meanwhile, Lex Luthor buys a worthy manuscript with inscriptions in kryptonian, and he shows the unique document to Clark. Lana Lang discloses the secret of her tattoo to her boyfriend Jason Teague.

"Run" is another reasonable episode of "Smallville". The lead plot seems to be stuck, going and coming back to the same point. I recall from other movies that the origin of The Flash is a laboratory accident where a scientist called Barry Allen, who is hit by a lightening, achieves the power of super speed. He uses his ability to fight crime. I believe that Bart Allen might be the same character, as indicated in IMDb, but this teenager is a juvenile criminal and therefore the origin of the superhero would be totally different from the other movies. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Fugindo" ("Running Away")
