What an Awesome Episode
15 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Huge threads of mythology, family alliances vs. family struggles, particularly in the House of El, and shockers abound in this thrilling episode that rivals most of the finales and premieres of this series.

Clark takes the blue crystal with his mother's DNA to the Fortress of Solitude to re-awaken her. She is more like a clone, but Clark refuses to accept this, believing that she has to be his actual mother. However, a major nemesis' DNA is also awakened through the crystal in Zor-El, Jor-El's brother who once attempted assassination on Jor-El. Tricking Clark's mother into giving Clark a blue-kryptonite ring, which is victory on Krypton, but failure on Earth, the mineral wipes away Clark's powers. Clark must find a way to destroy Zor-El before Zor-El can use the motherboard of crystals in the Fortress of Solitude to eclipse the sun and destroy mankind, where he wants to rule and form a new Kryptonian race with Lara. Also, new editor Grant Gabriel is NOT AT ALL what he seems to be.

This episode is mind-blowing. The mythology episodes are some of the best in the series, and this one is no different. It ranks in the top three as far as mythology-related episodes go. Clark must fix the mistake that he made in activating the crystal to see his mother again. Kara must fully accept that her father was evil, and probably an ally with General Zod. And Clark now must pay for the mistake of activating the crystal with a yet-to-be-revealed punishment from his father.
