Storyline

Lex is surprised when his father, Lionel Luthor, arrives in Smallville and officially closes down the Luther Corp Fertilizer Plant, thus firing all 2,500 employees to force Lex to move to Metropolis to help him run his evil corporate empire from there. Undaunted, Lex tries to hold off his unscrupulous father by meeting with the foremen to buy back the plan to put it under local management. But Lionel, not to be outdone by his own son, tries to stop the workers by threatening to have the banks forgo on their mortgages. Meanwhile, Clark Kent invites Chloe Sullivan to the spring prom, upsetting Pete who now has nobody to ask. Whitney invites Lana to a picnic to tell her that he's joined the Marines and will be dropping out of school and leaving Smallville for boot camp the following day. The snoopy and despicable reporter Roger Nixon from The Inquisitor steals the piece of Clark Kent's spacecraft from Lex's mansion and finally finds the truth about the Kents. Before leaving town, Whitney... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

Remy Zero, who performs the theme song "Save Me", make a cameo appearance as the band playing at Smallville High's spring formal, lip-syncing the hit song. See more »

Goofs

In the opening, Lex is standing on the Luthor logo used for the helicopter landing pad, watching his father's arrival. In the next scene the helicopter lands on the logo, and there has been no indication that Lex has moved. See more »

Lex: I believe the term is "Cry havoc and let's slip the dogs of war!"

Lex: Funny, I never saw the distinction.

The Best and Last Episode of the First Season – To Be Continued
9 April 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Lionel Luthor fires all the employees from the Luthor's Plant to force Lex Luthor to move to Metropolis. Clark Kent invites Chloe Sullivan to the spring prom, and Whitney Fordman joins the Marines. The snoopy and despicable reporter Roger Nixon (Tom O'Brien) from The Inquisitor steels the piece of Clark Kent's spacecraft from Lex's mansion and finds the truth about the Kents. Meanwhile, three tornadoes threaten Lana Lang and Smallville. A beam collapses over Lionel Luthor putting his life in danger.

"Tempest" is definitely the best episode of the First Season of Smallville; unfortunately, this is an episode to be continued. There are many action along this story, and as a curiosity, Remy Zero performs the theme song "Save Me" at Smallville High's spring prom. My vote is ten.

Title (Brazil): "Tempestade" ("Storm")
