Three Evil Witches in Kansas, 28 May 2006
Author: Claudio Carvalho from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

In 1604, in France, three evil witches, one of them Lana Lang's ancestral Countess Margaret Isobel Tharow, are condemned to the pyre by Magistrate Wilkins, and Isabel spits blood on a symbol on a page of a book. In the present days, Lana buys the book, and when she touches the blood entwined with the symbol, her evil ancestor possesses her body. She makes a spell, bringing the other two witches to Chloe Sullivan and Lois Lane bodies. The powerful trio tries to seize the three Kryptonian stones to increase their power. Meanwhile, a surprise birthday party for Chloe in the barn of the Kent Farm becomes really hot, and the trio cast spells against Jason Teague, Lex Luthor and a powerless Clark Kent.

"Spell" is a great episode of "Smallville". The story is excellent, and Lex finally tells Lana that he was the one that fired Jason, and not Clark. It is very funny when one of the witches believes that she is in the woods of France, instead of in Kansas speaking in English. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Feitiço" ("Spell")
