Fatality, Revelations and Healing Power
28 May 2008 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In a poor cabin in Quebec, an old man is possessed by a phantom escapee from the Phantom Zone. While a priest tries to exorcise the man, Lex and his army break in the cabin trying to capture the entity. Meanwhile Martha moves to Washington; later Lana tells Clark that she is leaving Lex and explains the reason why she married Lex. In return, Clark reveals his secret to her. Then the upset Clark runs to Lionel and he meets his mysterious savior that tells a secret about Lionel. The snoopy Lois discovers the secret behind the numbers said by Wes but she is severely stabbed in Reeve Dam and calls Chloe. Lex captures a boy possessed by the entity to use his DNA in his combat-army of super soldiers; however, the unexpected reaction of the alien jeopardizes his plans. When Lana is victim of an attempt, Clark arrives in the facility seeking Lex, but he faces the powerful phantom with unpredictable consequences.

"Phantom" is spectacular, certainly the best episode of the weak Sixth Season with revelations and fatality. Lana joins the club of those that know Clark's secret (I believe only Lex and Lois do not know). The amazing secret about Lionel surprised me, and in many opportunities I noted the ambiguity of this character but I could not imagine the reason of his behavior. The power of Chloe is finally revealed and I do not believe that Lana's tragedy has really happened. The powerful Phantom will certainly be the toughest enemy of Clark so far. Unfortunately, the distributor of Smallville insists in his usual subterfuge and ends this excellent series in its climax, leaving the fans anxiously waiting for the conclusion of the episode in the next season on DVD. In my opinion, this nasty procedure shows a total lack of respect with the viewers. My vote is ten.

Title (Brazil): "Fantasma" ("Phantom")
