Storyline

Lionel Luthor is shot twice in the Luthor's mansion by an unknown assailant. When Jonathan Kent is found drunk, with a pistol in one hand and a bottle of tequila in the other hand sleeping in his truck, he becomes the prime suspect of the attempt. All the evidences point to him, but Clark believes in his innocence and tries to prove that his father did not shoot Lionel. Clark and Pete team up to investigate leads Lionel had, and learns that the conspiracy to frame Jonathan goes back to the town sheriff. Meanwhile, Lex deals with his father's associate, Dominic Senatori, who thinks Lex was the culprit who shot Lionel, but Lex thinks Dominic is the guilty one. Meanwhile, Lana asks Chloe to investigate Henry Small after he refuses to take Jonathan's case. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Homage to "Rashômon"
27 April 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Lionel Luthor is shot twice in the Luthor's mansion. When Jonathan Kent is found drunken, with a pistol in one hand and a bottle of tequila in the other hand sleeping in his truck, he becomes the prime suspect of the attempt. All the evidences point to him, but Clark Kent believes in his innocence and tries to prove that his father has not shot Lionel.

"Suspect" is an episode of "Smallville" visibly inspired in Akira Kurosawa's masterpiece "Rashômon". Showing different perspectives of a crime, the surprising motives are disclosed only in the very end of the story. The destructive and evil character of Lionel Luthor is really disgusting. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Suspeito" ("Suspect")
