Storyline

Lex has been secretly trying to turn Wes Keenan, a military man who supposedly died fighting in Afghanistan, into a "super soldier" by injecting him with DNA pulled from the various meteor freaks he has captured. After a crooked senator, Ed Burke, who has been financing the 'Project 33.1', threatens to expose Lex's secret labs, he dispatches Wes to kill the senator. But Lois witnesses the attack and inadvertently becomes the super soldier's next target. Meanwhile, Clark tries to convince Lana to leave Lex, but she refuses and Clark becomes more suspicious about Lionel's involvement with Lana's motivation. Following Senator Burke's murder, Martha is asked to be his replacement in Washington D.C. which means leaving Smallville (and Clark) behind. Written by Anonymous

Les Luthor tests his ultimate weapon in a Luthercorp facility, the super soldier Wes Keenan, who is officially considered "killing in action" in a plane crash in Afghanistan by the US Government. When the corrupt senator Ed Burke threatens the Project 33.1 and the Luthor family, Lex sends Wes to resolve the situation killing the senator and his bodyguards. However, Lois witnesses the attack and recognizes Wes as the sweetheart and first kiss of her adolescence in a military base, emotionally affecting the behavior of the cold soldier. Meanwhile Martha is invited to be the substitute for the deceased senator Burke in the Senate.

"Prototype" is an engaging episode of this irregular Sixth Season of Smallville. The intentions of Lex disclosed in the end are the promise of a good Seventh Season, but the romantic situation between Lana and Clark is annoying. The ambiguity of Lionel is intriguing and exciting, and we never know the attitude that we might expect from this unpredictable character. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "O Protótipo" ("The Prototype")
