In tonight’s episode of Smallville, Tess Mercer stumbles upon a mysterious Kryptonian box that was in Lionel Luthor’s possession, Clark gets thrown into an alternate world — one where it was not the Kents who found Clark in the field as a child, but Lionel Luthor instead.
On top of this shocking Smallville twist, Clark now has to pretend to be Clark Luthor. With that comes the truth that Clark Luthor is a known murderer and is hated by Lois Lane and Oliver Queen (who are still a couple) — all while trying to figure out a way back home.
Back in Metropolis, Clark Luthor has replaced Clark Kent and all hell is sure to break loose as Clark’s friends have to deal with an evil version of their super-powered friend — one who is capable of murder and doesn’t plan on returning to his alternate world.
Tess (Cassidy Freeman) acquires a Kryptonian box that once belonged to Lionel Luthor (John Glover). When Clark (Tom Welling) accidentally activates the box, he’s transported to a parallel universe where Lionel found Clark in the cornfields instead of the Kents. In this universe, Clark Luthor is a murderer and Lois (Erica Durance) is engaged to Oliver (Justin Hartley) and both of them hate Clark. Clark must be careful not to tip off Lionel that he’s not his son while trying to figure out how to get back to Earth where the monster Clark Luthor was transported in his place. Executive producer Kelly Souders directed the episode written by Bryan Q. Miller.
