Investigating the Past and Disclosing Hidden Secrets
8 April 2006 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

When Lana Lang is hit by a blow of a gas pipeline in the field, she has visions of a criminal and sees Chloe Sullivan being kidnapped. Meanwhile, Lex Luthor is visited by the despicable reporter Roger Nixon (Tom O'Brien) that convinces him to open again the investigation of the mysterious events surrounding the meteor shower of years ago.

"Obscura" presents two different stories at the same time: the one about the power achieved by Lana Lang in her accident, but the most important is the one about the achievement of a piece of Clark Kent's spacecraft by Dr. Steven Hamilton (Joe Morton) in the fields and the investigation of Roger Nixon. I believe the series will take another route along the next episodes. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Oculto" ("Hidden")
