Clark is attacked and wakes up in a mental asylum where the attending physician, Dr.Hudson, tells him he has been there for five years due to his elaborate fantasy that he has alien superpowers. In this new world, Martha is married to Lionel Luthor, Chloe is deemed insane and Lana chose Clark over Lex. Lana begs Clark to agree to Dr. Hudson's treatments so they can be together, but when a fellow patient named John, A.K.A, Martian Manhunter, tells him the good doctor is actually a phantom and he needs to kill him in order to return to reality, Clark must make the toughest decision of his life.

Did You Know?


Pictures of Victor Stone, Arthur Curry and Oliver Queen were shown in Clark's parallel world, but the people pictured were not the same people he met before. In Clark's delusion, Oliver Queen is a security guard, Raya is a nurse, Milton Fine is a doctor, Arthur Curry and Victor Stone are patients, Jor-El is the name of a handsoap, and "Phantom Zone" and "Fortress of Solitude" are titles of books. 331 is the capacity of Clark's ward.

John Jones: You're not crazy, Kal-El. We don't have much time, so listen to me closely. I believe you're from another planet.
Clark Kent: What makes you say that?
John Jones: Because like you, I'm not from here. I come from Mars. You can't trust anyone.

A real mind-blower
10 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You better see this episode from the beginning, because if you start to watch it any later, you will be confused as to what is happening to Clark's life.

Yet, that is the twist; Clark is stuck in an alternate reality. Lana is devoted to him. Lex lost most of his legs and is in a wheelchair due to the bridge accident when he swerved to miss Clark in the pilot of the series. Martha is married to Lionel. About the only constant is his most loyal friend Chloe, who still believes in who he is. And, oh yeah, he doesn't have any superpowers. He is in a mental institution for putting himself in a fantasy world where he does have powers, and is ridiculed for believing so. Aside from Chloe, there is one mysterious figure who believes in Clark: a black man who in the alternate reality is also a resident of the institution, who believes he is from Mars.

Clark must stay true to everything he believes is actual reality, and not get brainwashed by the institution's psychiatrist, who is in fact the fourth Phantom Zone escapee.

This episode is utterly mind-blowing and shocking. Plus, it provides a fresh twist from the usual type of "Smallville" episode.
