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.

In the past, Clark has been completely demobilized and incapacitated by kryptonite. However, he is somehow able to manage to get through the small opening in the tunnels although the tunnels had kryptonite all over. See more »


When Jodi Keenan and Lex Luthor 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 »

Helping Each Other
25 May 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

While inspecting the tunnels of an underground facility of Luthercorp, Lex meets Lionel and is surprised by Jodi Keenan, the wife of a Special Forces soldier Wes Keenan that wants her husband back. She bombs the tunnel, Lionel is badly wounded and Lex is trapped with her. Lex relates that Wes died in Afghanistan and Jodi does not believe on his word; in revenge, she hides bombs along the labyrinth of tunnels to avoid the rescue team to save Lex. Lionel asks Clark to help Lex, and when Clark arrives, he discovers that the place is covered with Kryptonite. Lex helps Clark and together the former friends help each other seeking a way out of the spot. Meanwhile Lana uses the information of a notebook she stole from Lex to get the blueprint of the tunnel.

In this good episode, the situation of Clark and Lex helping each other recalls the period hen they were best friends. Lex proves that is not totally evil when he helps Clark trapped under the stones in the tunnel. Lana shows that she deserves to be part of the Luthor family with her cynical attitude with Lionel and the information of the notebook. His intriguing insistence that is protecting Clark is a great mystery, one more secret of the Luthor mansion. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Uma Vingança" ("A Revenge")
