Storyline

His further investigation shows that the call was made from the future because of a time/space porthole created by a massive electrical surge from a downed power line fitted with meteor rocks, during a coming thunderstorm. Clark must try to save Lana and change the future. Meanwhile, Lionel Luthor shuts down the obscure Merton Laboratory and the research that Dr. Lia Teng is developing with blood platelet, which were finally revealed to have been developed from the vital of Clark Kent's blood. Adam becomes aware that he has less than 12 hours to be injected with the serum, otherwise he will die. He escapes, kills Dr. Teng and her whole team, and Lex is framed as responsible for the mass murder. Adam then sets out to find Lana to know if she still has an extra vital of serum for him. Lex later meets with an FBI agent, named Frank Loder, who enlists his... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Bloody Episode
14 May 2006 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

While working as a volunteer with Pete Ross in Smallville Youth Center, Clark Kent receives a distress call from Lana Lang, who is shot by Adam Wright. His further investigation shows that the call was made from the future. Meanwhile, Lionel Luthor shuts down the obscure Metron Laboratory and the research that Dr. Lia Teng is developing with blood platelet. Adam becomes aware that he has less than twelve hours to be injected with the serum, otherwise he will die. He escapes and apparently kills Dr. Teng and her team. Lex is framed as responsible for the massive murder.

"Crisis" is a bloody episode, but full of holes. There is no explanation for the reception of Lana's cellular call from the future, and the sudden arrival of Clark saving Lana uses the same lack of clarification. The fate of Lionel Luthor and his interest in the serum is finally disclosed. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Crise" ("Crisis")
