Clark Kent lives in Smallville, but in many ways he''s out of this world. So is this spectacular series that provides a fascinating spin on Superman lore. Season 3 is marked by Clark''s inability to overpower destiny and its pressing call for his return home.
Clark, who has left Smallville for Metropolis, returns to Smallville to help his parents, who are desperately trying to save their cash-strapped farm and is happily surprised to find that Lex Luthor has survived a deadly jet crash. Lex and Clark''s ill-fated camaraderie is strengthened by this miracle but causes tension in the close-knit Kent family, as Jonathan fears that Lex will emulate Lionel and his unscrupulous ways, even while Lex has tried to establish his own identity.
