Revealing in the entire series' backstory
21 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Many questions concerning prominent, wealthy families that have one time or another been involved in Clark's life are answered in this very revealing and plot-progressing 146th episode of the series.

Lionel hires men to taser Clark and trap him in a kryptonite cell. What is Lionel's reason behind wanting Clark imprisoned? This is revealed when Lionel meets with Patricia Swann, daughter of the late Virgil Swann (played by Christopher Reeve), the doctor who told Clark his origins. Patricia believes that there was legitimacy behind a secret society among four prominent, rich families- the Luthors, Swanns, Queens, and Teagues- called Veritas, that discussed the coming of the 'Traveler' from a faraway galaxy. She accuses Lionel of killing these society members so that he could have the Traveler all to himself, and demands to see the Last Son of Krypton. She explains that Lionel has done his job as part of Veritas, and that she now must do hers.

Meanwhile, Lex is keeping Kara in his mansion, feeding her false facts about her past as to skew her memories. He is also monitoring her on camera, and wants to give her neurological treatment to try to regain her memories so that he may understand his questions about Clark. Chloe and Lana decide that they must try to save Kara and try to restore her memories and powers if Clark is to be saved.

This episode has everything that you want in a good episode of television: reveals, action, good writing, and fantastic acting. On top of all these qualities displayed in this episode, it also contains special effects that have come a long way on Smallville since its early seasons. A truly intriguing episode.
