The Day Is Coming
1 May 2006 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Lana Lang gets closer to Clark Kent. Dr. Fredrick Walden (Ron LaBelle) recovers his conscience and repeats the sentence "the day is coming and he will rule the world" many times. He believes that Clark Kent is a menace to mankind. He escapes from the mental institution using a strong power he has achieved and tries to eliminate Clark Kent. Meanwhile, Dr. Helen Bryce returns for her engagement party with Lex Luthor, and finds her office broke in and the blood sample of Clark Kent stole. Clark is invited to be Lex's best man, and Martha and Jonathan Kent to replace his missing parents. Lionel Luthor poisons the relationship of Helen and Lex, and Chloe and Clark, but unfortunately he hears the revelations of Dr. Walden to Lex about Clark.

"Calling" is certainly one of the best episodes of "Smallville", with the story taking new paths and disclosing new secrets. Apparently Clark will learn more about his origins in the next episode. My vote is ten.

Title (Brazil): "O Chamado" ("The Call")
