Christopher Reeve again. It is taking too long to find out what deal Jonathan and Jor-El made and what the Kryptonian Key is going to do. Lana deciding not to have a relationship with Clark gets tedious. She listens to Lex.
The theme of father-son conflicts is central. Lex helps the FBI to spy on Lionel - but tries to keep them away from Clark. Lionel tells Clark that a son's love for a father is special; after all, we only get one. Does he suspect that Clark has two? In any case, Lionel murdered his own parents and has a terrible relationship with his son.
Dr Swann knows that the bullet-proof masked thief in Metropolis was Clark. He thinks that Clark is not ready for responsibility yet.
