Poor Childhood
16 May 2006 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Lana Lang witness Lex Luthor having a nightmare with his baby brother Julian in the edge of the balcony of his castle and saves him from falling. She tells Clark Kent, who finds that Lex is submitting to an experimental treatment with Dr. Garner (Martin Cummins) in the Summerholt Institute trying to retrieve his seven weeks of lost memory. Clark looks for Lionel Luthor trying to save his friend, but he is betrayed by Lionel and delivered to Dr. Garner to reveal his secret in a kryptonite memory tank.

"Memoria" is certainly the best episode of the Third Season of Smallville. The dramatic story discloses the traumatic childhood of Lex, what happened with Julian and the reason with Lionel hates him so much. Clark also recollects his mother Lara in Krypton, and her concern with him. In the end, we see two opposite origins, one full of love and the other full of hate. Consequently, a hero and a villain are born. My vote is ten.

Title (Brazil): "Lembranças" ("Remembrances")
