CLARK DISCOVERS THAT JOR-EL WAS ON EARTH FORTY YEARS AGO
- Lana’s (Kristin Kreuk) great uncle (guest star Tom Heaton), who was
convicted of murdering his wife forty years ago, shows her a picture of
the man he believes really killed her aunt, and she is shocked to
discover the drifter looks just like Clark (Tom Welling). Sure that the
man is Jor-El, Clark’s investigation leads him to a Kryptonian medallion
that allows him to see bits of the past – and the life that Jor-El
started for him long before he arrived on Earth.
Rosenbaum, Allison Mack, Sam Jones III, John Glover, Annette O’Toole and
John Schneider also star. Directed by Marita Grabiak Written by Brian
Peterson & Kelly Souders
Lana Lang (Kristin Kreuk) is
visiting her great-uncle, Dexter McCallum (guest star Tom Heaton), now
an old man, in the prison hospital. They are talking about his wife and
Lana’s great-aunt, Louise McCallum, who died 42 years ago. Dexter was
apparently convicted of her murder, and has therefore been in prison all
this time. He is now old an ill, and lying in the prison’s hospital.
Lana tells him that her Aunt Nell (Sarah-Jane Redmond)
never said much about Louise, only that she died very young. Lana also
mentions that Nell never talked about Dexter, probably because he was
accused of killing Louise. He tells Lana that he is innocent, that he
loved Louise and wasn’t the one who killed her. Lana is not sure she can
believe him, and even if she did, wonders what she can do, forty years
later, to clear his name. She also asks him why he never contacted her
before. He tells her that Nell asked him not to, but now he feels he has
to because he is so ill.
We see Dexter remembering what happened the night of Louise’s murder. A
young Dexter (John Mann) was in the house, when he hears shots coming
from the barn. As he runs out of the house to the barn, shouting
“Louise! Louise!”, he sees a man running out of the barn. Dex enters the
barn, and finds a gun on the floor. He picks it up, in shock, then looks
further on, to see his wife Louise lying there, with blood on her shirt,
dead. He falls to the ground by her side, in tears, and holds and hugs
her. At that moment, Sheriff Tate walks in looking for them, calling
them by their first names, “Louise? Dex?” He sees Dex on the ground,
holding Louise, dead in his arms, and holding a gun. “Dex! What have you
done?”, asks a distraught sheriff. We get to see Louise’s face for the
first time; she is the spitting image of Lana.
Back in his hospital bed, Dex explains how he saw Lana’s picture in the
paper and saw the resemblance with Louise. He knew that if she was
anything like his wife, she would be the one person who could
understand. Lana is saddened by his story; she has tears in her eyes as
she stares at the old issue of the Smallville Ledger, with the headline,
“Local Beauty Murdered” and a picture of Louise McCallum. Lana seems to
be willing to believe him, but wonders, then, who did kill Louise?
Dexter tells her it was the man he saw running out of the barn, The
Drifter. She looks back at the old newspaper, where there is a sketch
issued by police of “The Drifter”, a man who bears a striking
resemblance to Clark Kent (Tom
Lana discussed this with Clark. He asks her what became of The Drifter,
and Lana tells him that he was never found, and that police believed
that Dex had made him up to cover his tracks. Clark gets upset when Lana
tells him that she believes Dex’s story, he tells her that hardened
criminals spend most of their time declaring their innocence. Lana
reminds Clark that The Drifter looks exactly like him, and that, unless
Dex could have predicted the future, there is a good chance that The
Drifter actually existed. Lana knows that Clark is adopted, and the
resemblance is so striking that she says it could have been Clark’s
biological grandfather or even his father. Clark thinks it is
impossible, but Lana answers, “Why? You must have come from somewhere.
It’s not like you just fell out of the sky”. Suddenly, as Clark keeps
staring at the sketch of The Drifter, he notices The Drifter has a
medallion around his neck with a symbol that looks like an “8”.
Clark and Jonathan Kent (John
Schneider) are walking through the caves with their flashlights, and
Clark is explaining how he thinks maybe Lana is right, maybe The Drifter
was Jor-El, he also mentions that the symbol on The Drifter’s medallion
was Kryptonian. After all, the messages on the cave walls did say that
people from Krypton had been here before. Jonathan is still doubtful; he
believes that Clark is trying to hard to make a connection. Clark
explains that until now, Jor-El was just a distant threat to him, and
they really knew nothing about him, but, if it is true that Jor-El was
here in 1961, walking the same streets Clark is, then maybe the two of
them are not so different after all. Suddenly, Jonathan sees the same
symbol from the amulet engraved and glowing on the wall. Clark touches
it and the wall opens. Clark puts his hand in the hole, and suddenly, a
whole series of images and short flashbacks seem to be “downloaded” into
his mind, without him being able to really understand any of them. When
Clark pulls him hand out of the hole, he is holding the silver medallion
with the Kryptonian “8” symbol.
Pete Ross (Sam Jones III) and Clark
are walking down Smallville High Street. Clark is trying to explain to
Pete that the flashes must have been from the past, but that they went
by too fast. Pete is very skeptical. At that moment, they stop to let a
group of people walk by, and Clark leans against a mailbox. Suddenly, he
gets a vision; it is a scene from the sixties.
A young man, looking exactly like Clark, in a leather jacket, is leaning
against the mailbox on Smallville High Street in 1961. He then slowly
walks down the street, looking around, like it is his first time there.
He walks past Fordman’s, a sports store (owned by Whitney’s (Eric Johnson) family). Across the
road, he sees The Talon, Smallville’s movie theatre is playing “Splendor
in the Grass” with Natalie Wood. A young lady, looking exactly like
Lana, is walking past The Talon, reading a fashion magazine. At that
moment, a man with a gun (Peter Benson) walks up to the young lady, and,
in a Scottish accent, orders her to hand her purse over. She tries to
pull away. He throws her to the ground saying, “Give it over, I know
you’ve got it”. As they are fighting, the young man in the leather
jacket superspeeds across the road, grabs the thief and uses his
superstrength to throw him across the sidewalk and against a pole. He
then heroically picks the young lady up from the ground. She is still
stunned by what happened, and can’t stop starring at her hero. At that
moment the sheriff arrives, and handcuffs the thief who is still lying
on the ground. The young woman is still holding onto the young man and
calls him her hero. “You don’t strike me as someone who usually needs
saving”, he says. “Thank you”, she replies. He picks up her purse and
her magazine and returns them to her. She introduces herself to him as
Louise. “You can call me Joe”, he replies. “Well, Joe”, she answers,
“You’re the most excitement we’ve had all year”. Meanwhile, the thief is
being pushed into the cop car saying, “Did you see that? He could have
killed me!” With the thief safely in the car, the sheriff walks up to
Joe, and introduces himself as Sheriff Billy Tate. He thanks Joe for
having excellent reflexes. “They surprise me too”, answers Joe. When the
sheriff asks Joe where he is from, Joe explains that he is just passing
through on his way home. “Lucky you”, says Louise. “Louise always has
stars in her eyes”, explains the sheriff. “There’s nothing wrong with
that”, answers Joe, as Louise and Joe stare at each other longingly. The
sheriff notices the attraction and tension between them. At that moment,
Louise’s husband Dex pulls up in his car. Louise seems none too pleased
to see him, but the sheriff encourages her to go to Dex, telling her he
will be by later to get her statement. “See you around”, she tells Joe.
As she walks away and gets into the car, she keeps staring at Joe, and
he returns a fascinated stare. The sheriff is observing it all. The
sheriff thanks Joe again and taps him on the shoulder.
At that moment, Clark comes out of his vision, as Pete is tapping him on
the shoulder, asking him what is going on. Clark tells him what he just
saw, and explains that The Drifter is called Joe. He tells Pete how he
thinks the medallion somehow downloaded all these memories into his
head, and the visions are triggered when he touches something Joe
touched. Pete is still not convinced and thinks it’s just a daydream of
a heroic tale. Clark is convinced there is a way to find out if what he
saw really happened.
Clark and Chloe Sullivan (Allison Mack)
are walking down the school hallways, and Clark wonders how she managed
to get a hold of the police records of the 1960s. “Since I caught the
clerk and his girlfriend playing Cops and Robbers on the job”, she
answers. He tells her that the robbery should have taken place in 1961,
since that is when Natalie Wood’s movie was playing at The Talon. Chloe
is curious on how Clark would know such details, but he cuts her short,
saying it is just a hunch. He then notices that pages are missing from
the record on the day of Louise’s murder. He then finds the entry for
the robbery, but doesn’t see The Drifter mentioned anywhere. However, he
notices the name of the robber, Lachlan Luthor, aged 45. Clark asks
Chloe to look into this, although she is reluctant at first to deal with
the Luthors again. He tells her he has to go meet Lana, since her Aunt
Nell found a box with some of Louise’s belongings.
Chloe goes to see Lex Luthor (Michael
Rosenbaum), who confirms that Lachlan Luthor is his grandfather.
However, he sarcastic comments, “I always assumed my father’s knack for
taking people’s money was inherited, but I hardly think petty crime runs
in the family”. She insists that there can’t be many Lachlan Luthors
running around in Smallville, but he explains that no one in his family
had set foot in Smallville before his father, Lionel Luthor (John Glover), bought the Cream Corn
Factory in 1986 from the Ross family. Chloe explains why she is so
interested. “You were hoping that my family sat around at Thanksgiving,
sharing old crime stories”, asks Lex. You’re family isn’t exactly a
Norman Rockwell painting”, replies Chloe. But Lex seems reluctant to
humor her any further, telling her she has met a dead end.
Clark apologizes to Lana for being so defensive, explaining that, when
you’re adopted, you dream about who and what your parents were, and your
worse nightmare is finding out that they were criminals. They start
going through the box of Louise’s belongings. They find pictures and
Lana finds a love letter, and Lana thinks that Dexter must have written
it. As they are silently reading it, Lana gets emotional, saying she
never thought that Dex could be so… She struggles to find the right
word. “Passionate”, says Clark. They both look at each other with a
moment of awkwardness. They then notice the initial “J” at the bottom,
but neither of them comment on it. She then finds a pearl necklace, and
asks Clark to put it around her neck. She turns away from him, so that
he can tie it, and as he does so, he gets another vision. He sees
Louise, wearing the necklace, turning around to face Joe, in they share
a very… ahem… passionate time in the barn together. Joe tells her he has
never felt this way about anyone. Clark comes out of his vision, shocked
by what he has just seen. Lana notices the look on his face. He stands
up in shock, telling Lana that he doesn’t think that the love letter was
from Louise’s husband, but from The Drifter. He tells her that they were
Lionel and Lex are walking back into Lionel’s office. Lionel is
congratulating his son on an great presentation, telling him that the
board was very impressed, even if it was all smoke and mirrors. “What
can I say”, explains Lex, “I guess deception runs in the family”. Lionel
smiles at the comment and replies, “And the day was off to such a sweet
start”. Lex explains that he thinks his father may not have been telling
him the truth about Lachlan. Until now, Lionel had always described his
father as a hardworking entrepreneur who came from Scottish nobility.
So, Lex is wondering why a Lachlan Luthor was arrested in 1961 for petty
robbery in Smallville. “Not all entrepreneurs can have the luxury of
being both successful and honest’. Lex still wonders why Lionel would go
to such lengths to hide their past. “When I was young and trying hard to
get a foothold in a world of over-achieving Ivy-leaguers, I quickly
found that confessing to the fact that I was born and bred in a place
like Suicide Slum, wasn’t gonna win anybody over at a cocktail party”,
explains Lionel. “So you took the liberty of re-writing our family
history”, asks Lex. “That’s right”, Lionel answers, “Why should I have
to pay for the sins of my father?” “Sounds familiar”, replies Lex.
Lionel does confirm, however that both his parents died in a fire. When
it happened, Lionel was moonlighting at a print shop. Ever since then,
he has consciously buried himself in his work.
Clark takes Lana to the barn where Louise was shot. Lana is not sure
what he expects to find here. They find Dex's old car under a sheet.
When he touches it, Clark gets a flashback again. "Earth Angel" is
playing, and Joe and Louise are by the car in the barn, late in the evening, kissing. Joe tells Louise he has to leave tonight, and Louise
replies that she is leaving with him. But Joe reminds her that it is not
possible. She tells him that he is the one she wants to be with, that
she can't stay with Dex anymore, that she doesn't love him. "Where I'm
from, that wouldn't be accepted", says Joe. "I don't care what people
think. I never have. Dex says that's my curse", says Louise. "No Louise,
that's a gift", says Joe. He tells her it wasn't supposed to be that
way, that he has to return home alone. When she asks him why, he tells
her, "Because it's my destiny and I can't change it. Louise, as much as
I want this, I can't have it. My father told that someday I'd understand
that my actions have consequences. I guess this is what he meant". At
that moment, Lachlan Luthor walks into the barn and points a gun at
them. Joe pushes Louise away, and Lachlan fires bullets straight at Joe.
The bullets bounce off him. Both Louise and Lachlan are shocked, and
Lachlan runs away, confused. Louise is obviously still in shock, but we
realize it is because one of the bullets hit her, right in the heart.
Joe catches her, just as she falls. "Louise, don't leave me", he says
crying. "I love you", says Louise, as she dies in his arms.
Clark comes out of his vision, shocked, as he stands there stroking
Lana's face. "Clark?", asks Lana. He tells her he knows who killed
Lex is speaking to a private investigator named Mason (Tim Henry)
about the EdgeCliff Condos, owned by LuthorCorp. He tells Mason to look
into it, because there should be some sort of connection with his
grandparents. Mason tells Lex that before the condos and the copy
houses, EdgeCliff was the worst part of Suicide Slums. The high-rise
stands at the site of the fire where Lex's grandparents died in. Mason
does tell Lex however that the fire was more like an explosion that took
out the windows of two city blocks. Mason explains that he used to be a
detective in that precinct back in those days, but was told to drop the
case. He said that the slumlords controlled City Hall back then. He
gives Lex his original report. Lex looks over it and is concerned by
what he reads.
Chloe tells Clark that his vision must be wrong because Lachlan
Luthor was in jail for robbery at the time of Louise's murder. Clark
insists it was him. Lana wonders how Clark knows all this, and tells him
he can't expect them to just accept everything his says, without him
explaining what's going on. "It's crazy", says Clark. "You past crazy
about four random clues ago". He tells them that ever since he read that
newspaper article, he's been having memories of 1961. Both girls looked
shocked. Chloe wonders if it could have to do with genetic memory, a
scientific theory that we store our ancestor's memories in our DNA.
Chloe checks her email and finds a response from the Smallville Ledger,
to whom she had asked for a copy of the police file from the days in
1961 that are missing from the log book. They show that Lachlan Luthor
was indeed released from jail that morning, which is strange since he
had just committed a robbery. They also see that it is Sheriff Billy
Tate who signed off on the release. In 1961, he was Sheriff Tate, now he
is Mayor William Tate.
Clark and Lana go to visit the Mayor, who explains to them that
having to arrest Dex for the murder of his wife was one of the hardest
things he ever had to do, since Dex and Louise where his best friends.
The mayor tells Lana that she bears a striking resemblance to her
great-aunt and wonders if anyone has every told her that. Clark asks if
the mayor remembers releasing Lachlan Luthor, but the mayor admits it
was too long ago and doesn't remember all the release forms he signed.
Lana tells the mayor that they think that Dex may have been innocent.
The mayor smiles, saying that for the longest time, he wanted to believe
that himself but finally had to admit that there was no Drifter, and
that Dex had invited his existence to cover up his own guilt. Clark is
looking around the office when the mayor. He looks at the shelves where
he sees Tate's sheriff old badge. His eyes then go down to the lower
shelf, and he is amazed by something as he looks at the Mayor's
signature on his inauguration certaificate. He touches the signature,
and in particular the "T" of Tate. A that moment the mayor taps him on
the shoulder telling him to be careful. This triggers another flashback
for Clark, a flashback that is happening a night or two before Louise's
Joe and Louise are in the car, kissing, when Sheriff Billy Tate walks up
to the car. At first Billy thinks that it is Dex and Louise making out,
but when Billy tabs Joe on the shoulder and Billy sees who it is, he
gets upset. Louise tells Billy it's not what it looks like, but Billy
tells Joe to get out of the car. Billy grabs Joe, but Louise stops him.
She tells him that Joe was just taking her home. Billy walks off,
telling Louise that she better make sure that this is what she wants,
because he thinks she is making a big mistake. Billy drives off. Louise
tells Joe about why she married Dexter. She tells Joe that Dex is a nice
man, he's safe, but she never wanted to marry him. She made the mistake
of telling her father about her dreams, that she wanted to go to
Hollywood and become a star, which is when her father arranged her
marriage to Dex. Joe tells her that he thinks that their fathers would
get along. He tells her that his father sent him here to teach him a
lesson. He says he didn't want to come here, and now he would give
anything to stay, but he can't. She asks him to take her with him, like
James Dean and Natalie Wood in "Rebel Without a Cause". She thinks it
will be romantic. "When I said I wasn't from here, I wasn't talking
about Smallville. Where I'm from, we have colors that you've never seen.
Our moons are so close they fill up half the sky. We have sunsets that
last for hours.". Lana laughs, saying she almost believed him for a
second. But Joe is not laughing. He takes her in her arms. She gazes
into his eyes, as he slowly flies up from the ground. At first, Louise
doesn't realize what is happening, but she suddenly looks down and sees
the car far below. She is amazed as they romantically drift around.
Clark and Lana show Sheriff Adams the email with the copy of the
Lachlan Luthor's release form. Adams doesn't understand why they would
want her to dredge up an investigation that was put to bed 40 years ago.
Clark tells her that the mayor knows more than he says, and that he must
have made a deal to release Lachlan Luthor in exchange for Luthor
killing The Drifter, and then they were going to pin the whole thing on
Dexter. But Adams says she would need both motive and evidence before
she can haul the leader of their community off to jail. Clark shows
Adams the love letter they had found in Louise's belongings. In fact,
the signature that they thought was a "J" for Joe, was actually a "T",
like the "T" from Mayor Tate's signature on his inauguration
certificate. Clark explains to Adams that Tate was the one who wrote
this letter to Lana, and that the handwriting matches the one from the
release form. Lana explains that Tate was also in love with Louise, and
that with The Drifter dead and Dex in prison for his murder, Tate could
have had Lana all to himself. Adams is still not convinced and is not
willing to accuse the mayor.
Jonathan and Martha are discussing Clark's vision. Jonathan thinks
that maybe this is just another one of Jor-El's tests, but Martha thinks
that it is ok for Clark to try and find out a little more about where he
came from. Jonathan is not so secure, explaining that everytime Clark
looks into this, it reminds him that they are not his real parents.
Clark comes home, and while they are talking, he notices his
grandfather, Hiram Kent's gun hanging on their wall. He suddenly
remembers that he saw the gun as one of the flashes in his first vision
back in the caves. He grabs the gun which triggers his next flashback.
He sees Joe fighting with a man, and Joe grabs the gun and fights the
man off. The man thinks that Joe is going to kill him, and tells him to
be careful, because Joe already has one murder on his hands, he wouldn't
want to commit another. Joe throws the gun back to the man, telling him
that he was only cutting threw his field, that he's not going to kill
him. He also says that he didn't kill Louise, that he loved her and
would never hurt her. The man gets up and extends his hand to Joe,
introducing himself as Hiram Kent.
Clark comes out of his vision, and Clark tells them that The Drifter was
on the farm with Hiram. The go to the barn where Jonathan shows Clark a
box of his father Hiram's belongings. Suddenly, he notices Joe's bomber
jacket lying in the box. He grabs it, and has another vision.
Joe is in the Kents' kitchen with Hiram and his wife, who is pregnant.
Hiram has given him one of his one jackets, so that Joe would be less
recognizable. Joe says that he has to go away, but Hiram suggests he
should stay, and that they would help Joe clear all of this up. But Joe
says that he has no reason to stay anymore. Hiram's wife tells him to be
careful. Hiram touches her tummy and tells his unborn son "Bye Gene".
His wife smiles and says, "His name is Jonathan". Hiram explains to Joe
that they are still undecided on a name. He kisses his wife goodbye. Joe
Clark tells his parents what he saw. Martha thinks that Hiram was a good
judge of character and she doesn't think he would have helped a guilty
man. Clark suddenly gets an idea.
Mayor Tate is in his office, reading and having a drink. Suddenly the
fire in the fireplace lights up on its own. The windows open, papers go
flying. Clark shows up, dressed with the bomber jacket, looking like
Joe. Mayor Tate thinks it's Clark and tells him that he doesn't find
this amusing. Clark tells Tate that he must have him confused with
someone else. Tate turns away from Clark, but he Clark superspeeds to be
right there, on the other side. Tate is shocked. He is starting to
believe this is a vision. Clark is wearing the medallion. Tate
recognizes it. Tate is scared. Clark tells him that he knows about the
deal Tate made with Luthor. Tate tries to run away. Clark asks Tate how
he felt when he found out that Lachlan had killed Louise instead of Joe.
"It was supposed to be you", says Tate, believing he is seeing Joe. Tate
runs to his desk to grab a gun. He shoots at Clark who avoids all the
bullets. "You can't kill me, I'm already dead", smiles Clark. "If you
ever want another day of peace, you will confess what you've done to the
Sheriff", he tells the mayor. But the mayor says he has no intention of
going to jail. He tries to put the gun to his own head, but Clark grabs
his arm before he can do anything. At that moment, Sheriff Adams and her
deputy walk in, they got a silent alarm from the mayor. Tate is alone in
the room, looking shocked. He starts rambling, telling Adams that
Lachlan was supposed to kill The Drifter and that he never meant to hurt
Louise, that he loved her.
Lana goes to visit her great-uncle Dex has they are sitting him in a
wheelchair and about to release him from the prison hospital. He still
finds it hard to believe that Tate would do such a thing. He tells Lana
that Tate came to visit him in prison every Sunday for two years. He
knew that Tate had feelings for Louise, but never thought him capable of
such a thing. Lana suggests that maybe the memories were haunting him.
Dex says that he was so in love with Louise, he was too blind to see
that she didn't feel the same way about her. He says he wished he had
known when to let go.
Lex is showing Lionel the report from the private investigator. He
explains that the explosion originated from his grandparents' apartment,
and there were traces of ammonium nitrate, meaning the fire was no
accident. Lionel admits that he knew that, but that he didn't tell the
police, because he know that whomever killed his parents would be
watching him. Lex is surprised that Lionel would pass up a chance at
revenge. Lionel explains that he was young and had no resources, and
then, later, he just was hoping to bury it in the past. But Lex assures
him that that is not going to happen until they find out who did this.
Lana tells Clark about the Dex's release. She thanks Clark for it.
Clark says that he feels that if The Drifter hadn't come along, this
would have never happened. Lana explains that she knows that what Louise
did was wrong, but in a way, she thinks Louise was really lucky to know
what it was like to really be in love, even if it was only for a few
days. Clark says it's a shame it didn't last, but Lana thinks that that
is not the point. "Maybe you have to be grateful for the time you had
together, and stop holding on to what could have been".
Clark and Jonathan are at the caves, standing in front of the symbol
on the wall that matches the medallion. Clark touches the symbol and
gets a flashback of when Joe was there, with Hiram. Joe tells Hiram that
he is supposed to return to his father but that there are too many bad
memories attached. He shakes hands with Hiram and thanks him. Hiram
tells him that he can always tell an honest man when he sees one, and
that he is sorry that Joe ran into trouble and that there are plenty of
good folk in Smallville. "I'll remember that. Congratulations on the
baby, he's happy to have you as parents", says Joe. "If there's anything
you ever need, you know where to find me", says Hiram as he walks away.
Joe pulls out the hexagonal key (the same one that we know as being part
of the spaceship). The key lights up and creates the symbol on the cave
wall. The whole opens up, and Joe places the medallion onto the hole.
The hole closes again.
Clark comes back from his vision and explains to Jonathan that he thinks
that Jor-El put the medallion in the cave wall so that his father
wouldn't find it, like it was some sort of journal. He thinks that
Jor-El's father sent him to Smallville as some sort of right of passage.
He tells Jonathan about Hiram's last words to Joe. "I don't think you
and mom found be by accident. I think you were chosen".

Original title: "Yesterday."
This episode was billed by the WB both on-air and on their website as
Joe/Jor-El is able to fly.
This episode is similar to several other shows that set the
modern-day characters in roles in the past, including Roswell 'Summer of
47' and X-Files 'Triangle.'
Why does Joe seem to be injured by Hiram hitting him?
In a close-up of Clark's hand holding the silver talisman, the hand
had a callus - how does invulnerable super-healing Clark get calluses?
When Clark touches the mayor's shoulder at his home, he gets a
flashback to when Tate confronted Joe and Louise back in the 60s, out in
the cornfields. But...in the flashback Tate leaves the scene. If Tate
wasn't there, and Clark isn't at the cornfield, how is he having
flashbacks to the scene? In the rest of the episode he has to be at the
scene, or touching something at the scene when stuff he's seeing
Somewhere between 1961 and ending up as a spaceship voice in 2003,
Jor-El picked up an English accent. :)
