Storyline

After Lex discovers that Chloe's mother, Moira, has the power to control meteor freaks, he develops a drug to wake her from her catatonic state in the asylum, then he threatens to kill Chloe unless she uses her power to help him recover several meteor-freak escapees from his lab '33.1'. Clark helps Chloe break into the asylum to rescue Moira and finally get to know her mother, and he is almost tempted to kill Lex, but lets him live... again. Meanwhile, Clark rescues Lana from one of Lex's 33.1 escapees, and she later discovers something shocking about her "pregnancy." Also, Chloe decides to write an article about Lex's 'Project 33.1', but Lex silences her by threatening to have her locked away unless she remains quiet about his secrets projects.

Quotes

Chloe Sullivan: My mother sacrificed everything to protect the world from scum like you. And if taking you down means spending some quality time behind bars, sign me up.
Lex Luthor: Well, I thought you might say that. That's why there's a Plan B firmly in place. A plan that makes prison look like a picnic.

The War is About to Begin
24 May 2008 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Chloe has a weird behavior forgetting part of her actions, and she discovers that her catatonic mother Moira Sullivan has awakened and is using her ability to control the power of meteor freaks including her. Further, she is arrested in another 33.1 facility and Lex Luthor is trying to force her to bring one escapee back to the site. Moira uses the fugitive to chase Lex, but he attacks Lana in the Luthor's mansion instead. Clark brings Lana to the Smallville Medical Center and after some blood tests, the doctor finds synthetic hormones in her bloodstream that faked her pregnancy. Clark helps Chloe and Moira, but he finds that Lex was using drugs to bring her back from the catatonic state.

In "Progeny", Lana finds that she was not pregnant and Chloe is blackmailed by the evil Lex Luthor.to avoid the article that Chloe is writing about the 33.1. This good episode shows Chloe selling her soul to the devil, and Clark promising the beginning of a war against the evil Lex Luthor. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Descendência" ("Descendent")
