Sheriff Ethan Miller
WHO SHOT LIONEL LUTHOR? – When Lionel is shot, Jonathan is arrested, but after Clark and Pete perform their own crime scene investigation, they realize that more than one person had the opportunity to kill Lionel – including Lex. Meanwhile, Lana is suspicious after she asks her father to take on Jonathan’s case and he declines for mysterious reasons.
Clark meets a Native American girl in a cave and discovers drawings on the walls from the girl’s ancestors that tell a tale mirroring Clark’s arrival in Smallville during a meteor shower. Meanwhile, Lana learns the results of a DNA test that could prove her kinship to Henry Small.
The plot continues to develop the show’s mythology, as Clark meets up again with Ryan, a teenage mind reader the Kents befriended last season. This time, Clark tries to protect the teen from a scientist who has been conducting cruel experiments on the boy. Meanwhile, Lex crosses swords with Smallville’s corrupt mayor over a potential business deal that could have serious ramifications for the town.
A strange woman arrives in Smallville and tells Clark that she’s his biological mother and informs Lex that Lionel is the father. And she wants Clark take a DNA test to confirm her story. Meanwhile, Lana decides to meet the man who could be her biological father.
A teen who is kept locked in the basement of his parents’ house during the day sneaks out at night and leaves love letters for Lana at her parents’ graves. Meanwhile, Lionel Luthor hires Clark’s mother as his personal assistant.
It appears that shrewd billionaire Lex Luthor has taken leave of his senses when he marries a woman he hardly knows. The new Mrs. Luthor is Smallville High School teacher Desiree Atkins, who has the ability to temporarily control a man’s mind by emitting a kind of pheromone mist. She and Lex wed shortly after they meet, and Desiree immediately sets out to steal the Luthor fortune by planning her transition from wife to widow. She tries to persuade Clark to murder her new hubby, but her powers don’t work on the Kryptonian so she’s forced to find another pawn. Meanwhile, Clark’s troubles aren’t over; he’s struggling with his latest gift—heat vision.
The adventures continue for the Teen of Steel as the drama kicks off its sophomore season with Smallville still in the grips of a devastating twister. Faster than a speeding bullet, Clark rescues Lana from the storm and rushes her to a hospital before he races home to aid his folks. But Clark soon discovers that his dad is missing and was last seen chasing a nosy newspaper reporter off the farm. Elsewhere, millionaire Lex Luthor has his own problems when his conflicted feelings for his father cause him to hesitate in a moment of crisis.
A head injury gives Lana the ability to see through the eyes of a kidnapper who abducts Chloe and keeps her bound and blindfolded in a dark room filled with giant teddy bears. Meanwhile, an ambitious newspaper reporter provides Lex with new information about the meteor shower.
