Storyline

After Jodi Keenan, the wife of a Special Forces soldier, sets off a pipe bomb in one of Lex's secret labs, Lionel is severely injured and Lex is taken hostage by the enraged spouse. Claiming Lex kidnapped her missing husband, Jodi threatens to blow up the entire lab with Lex inside unless he tells her where her husband is. Lex naturally denies knowing Jodi's husband, Wes, Clark sets off to rescue Lex, but is immediately felled by the kryptonite lining the earthen walls. Lex and Clark realize the only way they will make it out alive is by helping each other before the bomb detonates. Meanwhile, Lionel reveals to Lana why he forced her into marrying Lex, which leads her to investigate Lex's secret research of his 'Project 33.1' research as well as his work in tracking down the Phantom Zone escapees to capture and use one as part to create his army of 'super-human' soldiers.

Goofs

When Jodi Keenan and Lex Luther are down in the tunnels, Lex comments that a cell phone won't work because they are too far underground. Jodi says that her's will and hands him a satellite phone. Those phones require a line of sight to the satellite and wouldn't work inside a building much less underground. See more »

Quotes

Clark Kent: Chloe, I've x-rayed these tunnels over a dozen times, and they all just seem to lead to Reeves Dam.
Chloe Sullivan: Maybe so, but if Lex is willing to go up against Tomb Raider for them, I can't retire my reporter's notebook just yet.

Nemesis
13 April 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

We've seen so many episodes over the years where Lex is kidnapped and held hostage, but in "Nemesis" we receive a nice change in pace, as the kidnapping only sets the stage for a much more interesting story.

"Nemesis" is told mostly in real time, and is action packed almost start to finish. Although the action side of the episode is focused on Clark and Lex trapped in underground tunnels with explosions about to go off, the real core of the episode is Clark and Lex confronting each other one on one after 2 straight seasons of being at odds. Their interactions both increase the tensions in their feud and give way to some surprising actions on Lex's part.

My only complaint with Nemesis is that the scenes between Clark and Lex trapped together were so good, that every time it cut away to Lionel, Lana or Chloe on the outside, it killed a bit of the excitement. That and the action ends far too early. Don't get me wrong, seeing a darker side of Lana and the first hint at Project Ares was great, it just have fit better in another episode, or tagged onto the end. Minor complaint from an excellent season 6 episode.
