Storyline

Jonathan Kent appears to Clark on his birthday and instructs him that he needs to kill Lionel Luthor because Lionel knows his secret. Meanwhile, Lionel comes clean to Martha about his knowledge of Clark's secret since his possession by Jor-El, and some of his scribblings from his now-telepathic link to Jor-El are revealed to announce that the "Vessel of Zod" is coming. Meanwhile, Lex has another meeting with Milton Fine who tells Lex that he is trying to make a vaccine to protect mankind against an alien virus. When Lana expresses suspicion that Fine is not who he appears to be, Fine reveals his real identity and that "Jonathan Kent" is just another copy of Fine (The Brainiac) sowing seeds of anxiety in Clark.

Quotes

Clark Kent: Mom, this isn't the first time I've seen dad. It's a long story, but Lana was in trouble. I tried to save her and had some sort of near-death experience. I saw dad; he was the one who told me Lionel knew my secret. That wasn't my imagination. What if this wasn't, either?
Martha Kent: If that's true... if it really was your father...
Clark Kent: Then what Lionel's up to is a lot worse than just knowing my secret.
Martha Kent: It would have to be for your father to suggest taking someone's life.

The Real Gift
9 July 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

On the day of his birthday celebrated with Martha, Chloe and Lois, Clark receives an envelope from Jonathan that Martha found with two baseball tickets and a message addressed to Clark. Clark visits Jonathan's grave, and his father appears and advises Clark to kill Lionel to save the human race from extinguishing. Later, Jonathan appears to Martha to convince her that Clark must kill Lionel. Meanwhile, Lex is dating Lana and shares with her that he had developed a vaccine to protect mankind against the virus collected by Milton Fine. When Milton meets Lex, he injects the virus in Lex and destroys the laboratory. Lionel convinces Clark that he is an oracle and shows the messages he has been written in Kryptonian. Chloe studies the pattern of the writing and Clark translates: "Zod is coming".

"Oracle" is another great episode of the Fifth Season of "Smallville". I could never imagine an association of Clark and the ambiguous Lionel, but it seems that the evil father of Lex Luthor is connected somehow to the origin of Clark. Lana Lang disappoints again with her relationship with Lex. The intelligent Chloe is a fantastic friend of Clark, and Lois Lane is extremely beautiful. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Oráculo" ("Oracle")
