Storyline

While returning home with Lois, Martha is hit by a flash of light followed by a thunder and contracts a lethal Kryptonian disease. Clark fears that Jor-El thus makes him pay for his resuscitation and asks for help from Professor Milton Fine, who tells Clark that Jor-El was a dictator on Krypton, who destroyed their great leader General Zod and the planet but sent Clark to Earth to dominate the world; the death of Martha would only be prevented by destroying the Fortress of Solitude. Meanwhile, Lionel convinces Chloe to investigate who Milton Fine really is. When Lois, feeling offended because Lex called her a "muffin peddler", meets Chloe, the double visits LuthorCorp., where the truth is revealed: Professor Milton Fine is actually a Kryptonian artificial intelligence unit, created by Jor-El but re-programed and corrupted by the Kryptonian rebel General Zod, who was executed for treason, and had his spirit banished to the hell-dimension of the Phantom Zone.

Trivia

This technically marks the first appearance of General Zod, Jor-El's greatest enemy, on the series. However, he only appears briefly in the distance. Terence Stamp, who supplies the voice of Jor-El in Smallville (2001), played Zod in Superman (1978) and Superman II (1980). See more »

Quotes

Chloe Sullivan: You got to experience the chills and thrills of journalism.
Lois Lane: Thanks, but no thanks. I don't know how you do it, chasing story after story that only leads to dead ends. I'd never be able to let go.
Chloe Sullivan: That's usually how it starts.

The Truth About Professor Milton Fine
30 May 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

While retuning home with Lois, Martha is hit by a flash of light followed by a thunder and contracts a lethal Kryptonian disease. Clark believes that Jor-El is charging for his resuscitation and asks for help to Professor Milton Fine. He discloses to Clark that Jor-El was a dictator in Krypton, who destroyed their great leader Zod first, and the planet later and sent Clark to Earth to dominate the world. Further, the salvation of Martha would only be achieved though the destruction of the Fortress of Solitude. Meanwhile, Lionel convinces Chloe to investigate Professor Milton Fine and find who he really is. When Lois, feeling offended because Lex called her of "muffin peddler", meets Chloe, the double decides to visit the LuthoCorp., where the truth about Professor Milton Fine is revealed.

"Solitude" is one of the best episodes of this excellent Fifth Season of "Smallville". The naivety and pure heart of Clark once again jeopardizes him. The loyalty and skill of the snoopy Chloe once again saves his life. The love of Martha for him and the good advices of Jonathan show why Clark is such good person. Last but not the least, live your life to its fullest with those you love is the great message of this show. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Solidão" ("Solitude")
