Storyline

Lionel calls Professor Joseph Willowbrook to the Kiwatche caves to show a recently found ancient object. Professor Willoebrook brings his assistant Jeremiah Holdsclaw, who takes the relic from the hands of Lionel. It transforms in a knife and makes Jeremiah as powerful as Clark. He runs away from Lionel's security men with the mythic knife. Professor Willowbrook insists that Clark is Namam, the man who fell from the stars, and in accordance with the Indian prophecy, that knife belongs to him and could be destroyed only by his greatest enemy. Jeremiah thinks that the enemy is Lionel and makes plans to kill him. Meanwhile, Lana decides to move to Paris to be away from Clark and make a fresh start. Also, a troubled Pete reveals to Chloe that his parents have decided to get a divorce. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Quotes

Lex Luthor: You know, I've been thinking a lot about this prophecy. I've got a new interpretation. Want to hear it?
Clark Kent: Sure.
Lex Luthor: This Naman guy is supposed to come from the stars, have the power of ten men, and shoot fire from his eyes, right?
Clark Kent: It's just an allegory, Lex.
Lex Luthor: I know. But if one person could do all that, he would be a formidable enemy. He could conquer the world. He could become a tyrant if nobody kept him in check. So I've been thinking. Anybody who'd be willing to fight him would have to be pretty ...

The Prophecy is Coming True
17 May 2006 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Lionel Luthor calls Professor Joseph Willoebrook (Gordon Tootoosis) to the Kawatche caves to show a recently found ancient object. Professor Willoebrook brings his assistant Jeremiah Holdsclaw (Nathaniel Arcand), who takes the relic from the hands of Lionel. It transforms in a knife and makes Jeremiah as powerful as Clark. He runs away from Lionel's security men with the mythic knife. Professor Willoebrook insists that Clark Kent is Namam, the man who fell from the stars, and in accordance with the Indian prophecy, that knife belongs to him and could be destroyed only by his greatest enemy. Meanwhile, Lana Lang decides to move to Paris.

"Talisman" is a reasonable episode of Smallville. The story is based on the Indian prophecy, and the greatest enemy of Namam is shown in the very end. The always undecided Lana Lang seems to have finally decided to move to Paris. Amen, since I hate this character. Pete Ross finds that his parents are divorcing and becomes very upset. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Talismã" ("Talisman")
