    In all the areas I've seen, Supermans Kryptonian Parents have been killed. Movie, The Animated series, both dead. Anyone know if that was the same in the original comics?

    Can't watch this episode yet until Sunday, due to a blasted NBA game on the channel Smallville airs on.

    You know the woman in tonight's episode isn't going to be his Kryptonian parent, right? She's just a scammer, but still dangerous since a DNA sample of Clark Kent is, well, dangerous.

    Good episode with some interesting revelations about the relationship between Lionel Luthor and Jonathan Kent.

    The Pete Ross DNA swap out was so stupid. It would have been better if they got some of Jonathan's DNA to replace Clark's.

    What I like about Smallville is that it's able to use soap opera cliches and integrate them seamlessly into the Superman-Smallville mythos, and turn the cliche inside out while making the parents tragic figures all for the sake of protecting Clark's secret.

    I like the fact that Clark's parents in Smallville are more flawed than they were in the comics. Of course they're good people but they seem to have more issues and secrets.

    His parents are very important in that they shape Clark's character which makes him the hero he is and will be.

    Lex on the other hand does not have a good role model in his father. In this version though, Clark and his parents are offsetting Lionel's influence. Maybe in this reality Lex will escape his destiny and become a good person. I think the friendship of Clark and Lex is the most intersting part of the show.

    I will really hate it when they become enemies. Maybe the producers have something else in mind!

    Aye Mike, I really hope so. No need in this version for Lex become worlds greatest super evil. Nor any Lois Lane etc, way too much chemistry between them(Lana and Clark). This makes smallville quite interesting with approach.

    The Kents are tortured souls, having to do the devil's bidding in order to keep Clark.

    I thought it was funny to see baby Clark trying to rub Lex's bald head in the truck.

    How were they able to get a DNA sample from Clark if his skin is supposed to be invulnerable?

    They swabbed the inside of his cheek. Standard way of gathering DNA.

    Was Clark really able to restore the metal door of the DNA sample holding enclosure to pristine condition after he bent it open? Hmm...

    Patrick-

    Not only did Clark bend the hell out of that door, he did it with no gloves on! And I agree with using Pete for the DNA swab; that was just outright dumb. "Well, according to our DNA tests, Clark is not this lady's son. Strangely though, he is a black man..."

    Other than those two minor gripes, I really enjoyed this episode.

    Lineage was a good episode and I put it in my top five along with:
    The Pilot
    Tempest
    Nicodemus
    and
    Duplicity
    Once again this week, SMALLVILLE looked outstanding in HD.

    Well Clark couldn't have used his dad's DNA because he's adopted! It wouldn't make much sense if they had the same DNA.

    Suprisingly, something that has gone unmentioned, Lionel Luthor's scene at the end...

    The kid in the locket was obviously not Lex. So that would mean that Lucas is still alive. I wonder how this will figure into Lex's future.
