In this darkly take on a Christmas Carol/It's a Wonderful Life, Clark begins to wonder with Lana still comatose and Kara held captive in the past by Braniac, if things would be better if he never arrived on Earth. The spirit of Jor-El then transports Clark to an alternate reality of what Smallville and the rest of the world would be like if he never existed; an alternate adoptive version of Clark Kent living at the Kent farm; Chloe is engaged to marry another guy, and Lex Luther is the ruthless President of the United States, with Kara as his right-hand person/assassin, and Milton Fine/Brainiac as Lex's chief adviser.

This is the third episode directed by Tom Welling. His others are season five's "Fragile" and season six's "Hydro". See more
In the alternate time line shown to Clark, Lex has been elected President of the United States. Lex must have also amended the Constitution because a person has to be a minimum of 35 years old to hold that office. There is no possible way Lex is 35, that would make him 15 years older than Clark, which is clearly not the case. See more
You will not keep me from the task I was programmed for.
Zod is still alive?
And trapped... in the Phantom Zone. With the humans gone, I will use Kara to release him through her Fortress.
She'll never go along with it.
It didn't look like she had much fight left in her. But she'll heal. She's healthy. So is Lex Luthor... the vessel. Together, they will repopulate the planet, and Krypton will rise again.
