First aired November
Lana: Louise McCallum. No one every really said much about her, just that
I had a great-aunt who died young.
Dexter: I'm guessing they never mentioned she had a husband.
Lana: No. But I don't think you can blame them. You were convicted of her
Lana: If you were so anxious to see me, why did you wait all these years
Dexter: Your Aunt Nell. She asked me not to.
Lana: I don't mean to be rude, Mr. McCallum, but even if I did believe
your story, I don't know what you want me to do.
Dexter: I just need somebody in Louise's family to know I truly loved my
wife, and I'm not the man who killed her.
Dexter: Louise! Louise!
Old Dexter: It was 42 years ago, and I can still hear those shots.
Dexter: Louise... Louise! No!
Old Dexter: Sheriff Tate arrived.
Tate: Dex! Louise! You out here?
Old Dexter: He found me with the gun and Louise dead in my arms.
Tate: Dex... What have you done?
Old Dexter: I swear to you. That's what happened that night.
Dexter: When I saw your picture in the paper, I couldn't get over how
much you looked like Louise. I thought if you are anything like her, you'd
be the one person who could understand.
Lana: If you're saying that you didn't kill her, then who did?
Dexter: The man I saw leaving the barn, a drifter. He killed my Louise.
Clark: What happened to this guy, this drifter?
Lana: They never caught him. Dexter said that people assumed that he made
the story up so that he could cover his tracks.
Clark: But you believe him.
Lana: Well, why would he lie to me? It's not like he's gonna get the last
40 years of his life back.
Clark: Lana, convicted murderers spend half their day trying to
convince people they're innocent.
Lana: Clark, that drawing looks exactly like you. So unless Dexter
could've predicted the future, there's--there's a pretty good chance that
drifter was real. It could've been your grandfather. Even your father.
Clark: That's impossible.
Lana: Why? You must've come from somewhere. It's not like you just fell
out of the sky.
Clark: I think Lana's right. It is Jor-El.
Jonathan: From 1961?
Clark: These cave walls said that people from Krypton have been here
before. Why not my father?
Jonathan: Clark, son, don't you think you're trying just a little bit too
hard to make a connection here?
Clark: You saw the medallion he was wearing. The symbol's Kryptonian.
Jonathan: Okay. Let's just say that it was Jor-El, and from everything I
know about him, it's not that far of a stretch to believe that he could kill
Clark: That's the thing, we don't know that much about him. Up until now,
all Jor-El has been to me is some distant powerful friend, but if he was
here, walking the same streets as me, maybe we're not so different. Maybe
he's more human than we thought.
Jonathan: Clark-- Clark. Isn't that what you're looking for?
Clark: I knew I'd seen it down here.
Jonathan: Clark. Clark! What is that?
Clark: The images I saw must've been from the past.
Pete: Clark, you really need to lay off the late night television.
Clark: I'm not kidding, Pete. I had all these flashes, but they went by
so fast, I really couldn't make sense of them.
Young Man: Excuse me.
Man: Give it over!
Louise: Get away from me!
Man: Give me the money! I know you've got it! Give it!
Louise: My hero.
Drifter: You don't strike me as someone who usually needs saving.
Lana: Thank you.
Mugger: Did you see that? He could've killed me.
Tate: Tell it to the judge.
Louise: Thanks. I'm Louise.
Drifter: You can call me Joe.
Louise: Well, Joe, you're the most excitement we've had all year.
Tate: Watch your head.
Tate: Well, I guess we owe you our gratitude. Hi, I'm Sheriff Billy
Tate. Some reflexes you got there.
Joe: They kinda surprised me, too.
Tate: I haven't seen you around Smallville before.
Joe: I'm just passing through on my way home.
Louise: Lucky you.
Tate: Forgive Louise. She's got stars in her eyes. Always has.
Joe: There's nothing wrong with that.
Dexter: Everything all right?
Tate: You go on home, Louise. I know how Dex hates to miss his bridge
game. I'll drop by and get your statement.
Louise: See you around.
Tate: I appreciate your help.
Pete: Clark, what's going on?
Clark: It's like I was back in the '50s. I was standing right here where
Clark: That's the name of the drifter. Pete, do you remember when I was
in the cave and I got all those flashes? I think this medallion downloaded
me with all his memories. When I touch something of his it triggers one.
Clark: Louise was here too. The drifter, he saved her.
Pete: Well, of course he did! Clark, back here in the 21st century, we
call that a daydream.
Clark: There's got to be a way to find out if what I saw really happened.
Clark: Since when can you take police records out of City Hall?
Chloe: Since I caught the clerk and his girlfriend playing cops and
robbers while on the job.
They both laugh.
Clark: Well, the robbery should be around June 1961. That's when
the movie was playing at the Talon.
Chloe: Okay, I don't mean to give you the third degree, but how do you
know all of these--
Clark: Chloe, I told you it was just a hunch that the drifter was there.
Chloe: Yeah, I get that. But it's the robbery outside the Talon
with the Natalie Wood movie playing that's a little more detailed than your
Clark: Well, as curator of the Wall of Weird, just go with me on this
Clark: There's some pages missing, all from the day of Louise's murder.
Chloe: Someone gets a D in subtlety.
Clark: Here, the robbery.
Chloe: You see our heroic drifter anywhere?
Clark: No, but look at the name of the robber.
Chloe: Lachlan Luthor. That's--that's Lex's grandpa. Oh, come
on, I had a 3 megabyte file on Lex. I know his favorite cereal. Maybe he
Clark: Well, you're gonna have to find out. I gotta meet Lana. Nell found
some of Louise's things in the attic.
Chloe: Wait, Clark, this is where I'm gonna have to bail. The last time I
researched the Luthors, Lex almost got killed.
Clark: Please. You're gonna have to deal with him sooner or later.
Lex: I always assumed my father's knack for taking people's money was
inherited, but... I hardly think petty crime runs in the family.
Chloe: Well, Smallville wasn't exactly teeming with Lachlan Luthors. Your
grandfather has to be the one who was arrested.
Lex: Chloe. No one in my family set foot in this town until my father
bought the cream corn factory. Isn't an age-old robbery a little off your
usual teen beat?
Chloe: Well, this one's pro bono. Lana's really worried about her
Lex: Something tells me you're not here because of Lana.
Chloe: Anyway, we think Lachlan met the drifter, and we were just
Lex: What, that my family sat around at Thanksgiving sharing old crime
Chloe: Your family isn't exactly a Norman Rockwell painting. Look, Lex,
we're just trying to find what we can.
Lex: I wish I could help you, Chloe, but I'm afraid you've met a dead
Clark: Hi, Lana. Look, I'm really sorry about being so defensive this
Lana: You don't have to apologize. I kinda dumped a lot on you all at
Clark: I guess it's just when you're adopted, you dream about where you
came from and what your birth parents were like. The biggest nightmare is
that they were criminals.
Lana: With all the strange surprises I've had in my family, I know it's
not easy. There are only a few of Louise's things. But I think we'll
be able to find something. It's a love letter. Dexter must have
written this. Wow. Who knew he could be so, um...
Lana: Only an initial? Could you?
Louise: I couldn't stop thinking about you all day.
Joe: I've never felt this way about anyone. All I know is I want to be
Clark: Lana, I don't think that love letter's from her husband. I think
it's from the drifter. They were in love.
Lionel: Congratulations, Lex. That was an excellent presentation. The
board was impressed. It was smoke and mirrors, but, um, skillfully done.
Lionel picks up a bottle of champagne that has been chilling on the
Lex: What can I say? I guess the, uh, heart of deception runs in the
Lionel: And the day was off to such a sweet start. (Pops the
champagne open and pours a glass.) Um, deception, huh? You think I've been
deceiving you about something?
Lex: You tell me. You've always described Grandfather Lachlan as a
hardworking entrepreneur who came from Scottish nobility.
Lionel: What are you driving at, son?
Lex: Maybe you could explain why a Lachlan Luthor was arrested in 1961
for petty robbery in Smallville.
Lionel: Not all entrepreneurs can have the luxury of being both
successful and honest.
Lex: Why would you go to such lengths to hide our past?
Lionel: When I was, uh, young and trying hard to get a foothold in the
world of overachieving 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.
Lex: So you took the liberty of rewriting our family history?
Lionel: That's right. Why should I have to pay for the sins of my father?
Lex: Sounds familiar. Is the, uh, memorial in our family plot even
real or do I have grandparents wandering around Suicide Slum?
Lionel: No, no, they... they both died in a tenement fire.
The only reason I'm alive is I was moonlighting at the-- at a print shop
when it happened. Ever since then I've, um, buried myself in work.
Clark: This is the barn where Louise was shot.
Lana: Clark, it's been over 40 years. What do you expect to find here?
Joe: I have to leave tonight.
Louise: I'm leaving with you.
Joe: Louise, I told you, that's not possible.
Louise: I can't stay with Dex anymore, I don't love him. You're the one I
want to be with.
Joe: Where I'm from we wouldn't be accepted.
Louise: I don't care what people think. I never have. Dex says
that's my curse.
Joe: No, Louise. That's a gift.
Louise: We're not that different, Joe. I'm willing to try.
Joe steps past her.
Joe: This wasn't supposed to happen. I have to return home alone.
Joe: Because it's my destiny. I can't change it.
Joe: Louise, as much as I want this, I can't have it. My father
told me that someday I'd understand that my actions have consequences. I
guess this is what he meant.
Louise: It's not fair. We should be together.
Joe: No. Louise? Don't leave me.
Louise: I'll never leave. I love you.
Joe: Louise... No. No, Louise. Louise...
Clark: I know who killed her.
Lex: The Edgecliff Condos. They're owned by LuthorCorp, but I'm missing
the connection to my grandparents.
Mason: Well, before the condos and the coffee houses, this was the worst
part of Suicide Slum. That high rise... stands on the site of the tenement
your grandparents died in.
Lex: So my father's story's true. They died in a fire.
Mason: Yeah, if you call an explosion that blows the windows out of
two city blocks a fire, yeah.
Lex: Sounds like you have your doubts.
Mason: I was a detective in that precinct. Back in those days, when they
told you to drop a case you did it. The slum lords controlled City Hall.
Well, I'm retired now. It doesn't really matter.
Mason: I think you'll find my original report enlightening.
Chloe: I don't mean to rain on your parade, Clark, but Lachlan Luthor was
in the jail at the time of the murder.
Clark: I know it was him.
Lana: How? You can't expect us to keep following these weird hunches
without telling us what's going on.
Clark: It's crazy.
Chloe: You passed crazy about four random clues ago.
Clark: Ever since I read that newspaper article I've been having memories
Clark: It's like some weird deja vu thing.
Chloe: Well, could it be like reincarnation? You know, like past lives?
Chloe: Or, uh, genetic memory. Science has theorized that we store our
ancestors' memories in our DNA.
Chloe: Anyway... Well, wherever your hunches are coming from,
they're eerily accurate. Look at this. I asked the Ledger to email me the
newspaper's police blotter from the day that was missing in the logbook.
Clark: Lachlan was released from jail the morning Louise was
Lana: He only spent a few nights in jail for armed robbery?
Chloe: Yeah, and look at the name of the deputy who released him.
Clark: Billy Tate.
Chloe: More affectionately known now as our honorable Mayor William Tate.
Tate: Dex and Louise were my best friends. Arresting him was the hardest
thing I ever had to do. (To Lana.) You bear a striking resemblance to your
great-aunt. Has anyone ever told you that?
Clark: Mayor Tate, can you remember booking someone named Lachlan Luthor?
He was released the same day Louise was killed.
Tate: It's hard to keep track of all the arrests that I've made.
Lana: We think your friend Dexter is innocent.
Tate: Trust me, of all people I wanted to believe that more than anyone.
But finally I had to admit there was no drifter. He made up the story to
cover his own guilt. Careful with that , young man.
Tate: Hey, you two lovebirds.
Louise: Billy, it's not what it looks like. It was just--
Tate: Sure. Okay, big shot, out of the car.
Joe: I don't know what business this is of yours, but--
Tate: I think you've overstayed your welcome. You better move along
before you cause any more trouble.
Louise: Billy, he was just taking me home.
Tate: You better make sure this is what you want, Louise. 'Cause I think
you're making a huge mistake.
Louise: I never wanted to marry Dexter. Don't get me wrong, he's--he's a
nice man, he's just... safe. I made the mistake of telling my father my
dreams. I want to go to Hollywood, become a star. The next thing I know,
he's putting me together with Dex, saying what a great wife I'd make. I
finally gave in. And here I am.
Joe: I think our fathers would get along. See, I'm not what you'd
call a model son. My father sent me here as sort of a lesson. I didn't want
to come here. Now I'd give anything to stay. But I can't.
Louise: Then take me with you.
Louise: We'll be like James Dean and Natalie Wood in "Rebel Without
a Cause." It'll be romantic.
Joe: I don't think you understand. When I said I wasn't from here, I
wasn't talking about Smallville.
Joe: 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
Louise: You almost had me there. For a second I was actually believing
you. Oh, my God.
Adams: So you want me to dredge up an investigation that was put to bed
40 years ago?
Clark: The mayor knows more than he's telling.
Adams: Oh, yes, that mysterious drifter of yours.
Clark: We think that Mayor Tate made a deal to drop the charges on
Lachlan Luthor if Lachlan killed the drifter. They were gonna pin the whole
thing on Dexter.
Adams: Well, you make a great storyteller, Mr. Kent, but not much of a
detective. See, I will need two small things called motive and
evidence before I'm gonna haul the leader of our community off to jail.
Clark: Look. The handwriting on the police log matches this love letter.
It's the same signature.
Lana: He was in love with her as well. With the drifter dead and Dexter
in jail for his murder, Mayor Tate could have Louise all to himself.
Adams: I don't know if you kids can hear yourselves, but you might want
to be careful about who you're pointing fingers at. If you'll excuse me, I
got a few cases in this century to attend to.
Jonathan: Martha, we can't even tell if these visions are for real. I
mean, for all we know, they could just be another test from Jor-El.
Martha: Jonathan, when have you seen Clark this determined for no reason?
I know this is hard, but we can't blame him for wanting to know about his
Jonathan: Every time I hear the name Jor-El, all I can think of is that
we are his real birth parents. We're just the people who were lucky enough
to find him, that's all.
Martha: But right now he's here with us.
Martha: Clark. Have you had any more of the visions?
Jonathan: Listen, son, I'm, uh, I'm sorry I doubted you. If you'd like,
we can go over to McCallum's barn, see if you missed anything.
Martha: What is it?
Clark: That's grandpa's gun. I saw it in the cave when I had my first
Joe: I don't want any trouble. I'm just cutting through your field.
Man: Easy there, son. You already got one murder on your hands if you're
the one the whole town's looking for.
Joe: I didn't do it. I'm not a killer. I loved her. I'd never hurt
her. You g-- you gotta trust me.
Man: I'm Hirum. Hirum Kent.
Jonathan: What is it?
Clark: The drifter was here. He was here on the farm with Grandpa Kent.
Jonathan: I haven't opened this... since the day my father passed away.
Martha: Maybe something in here will trigger another memory.
Jonathan opens the trunk. He reaches in and pulls out a belt with a large
Jonathan: Clark, your grandfather wore this old thing every single day of
his life. It was his favorite belt.
Martha: I wish you could've met him. Do recognize anything from
Mrs. Kent: At least you won't stand out as much if they stop you.
Hirum: I know all the back roads. We'll take them.
Joe: I appreciate your help, but I'll find my way on my own.
Hirum: I am not sending you out alone. Are you sure these friends of
yours are gonna show up?
Joe: They'll be there.
Hirum: You're welcome to stay and try to clear this thing up.
Joe: I've got no reason to stay anymore.
Mrs. Kent: Be careful.
Hirum: Bye, Gene.
Mrs. Kent: His name is Jonathan.
Hirum: We're still deciding.
Hirum: Come on, let's go.
Joe: Thank you.
Clark: Grandpa helped him escape.
Jonathan: Now, look, I-I'd like to believe you, Clark but--
Clark: He wanted to name you Gene.
Jonathan: After Gene Autry. We had all of his old records, but...
Mom finally won out.
Martha: Hirum was a pretty good judge of character, Jonathan. I don't
think he would've helped a guilty man.
Jonathan: Well, I don't think that an old bomber jacket's gonna prove
Clark: I'm not too sure about that.
Man: Sheriff Tate.
Tate: Mr. Kent. I'm not sure how you got in here, but I don't find this
Clark: I think you've got me confused with someone else.
Tate: The police are on their way.
Tate: Where did you get that?!
Clark: I knew you'd remember me.
Tate: This can't be real.
Clark: You've done a pretty good job of hiding what's real. I know you
made a deal with Lachlan to kill me. But how did you feel when you
found out that you killed Louise instead?
Tate: It was supposed to be you!
Clark: You can't kill me. I'm already dead.
Tate: Mother of God!
Clark: If you ever want another day of peace, you'll confess what you've
done to the sheriff.
Tate: No! I'm not going to jail!
Clark: You're not taking the easy way out.
Adams: Mayor Tate. You okay? We got the silent alarm.
Tate: He's trying to kill me!
Tate: Lachlan was supposed to kill the drifter. I never meant to
hurt Louise. I loved her.
Dexter: I never expected to see this day. It's still so hard to
believe about Billy. Did you know he came to visit me every Sunday for the
first two years I was in here?
Lana: I'm sorry. I know he was your friend.
Dexter: I guess I always knew how he felt about Louise, but I never
imagined he could do a thing like that. And him confessing after all these
years. It doesn't make any sense.
Lana: Maybe it had been haunting him.
Dexter: It be a terrible thing when love consumes you and takes over. I
was so in love with Louise I just couldn't see she didn't feel the same way
about me. I wish I'd known when to let go.
Lex: The explosion originated in your family's apartment. There were
traces of ammonium nitrate, Dad. Your parents' death was no accident.
Lionel: I've always suspected this. I--oh... I knew my father
had enemies, but uh...
Lex: That's not what you told the police.
Lionel: I was young, but never naive. I knew automatically that whoever
did it would be watching me.
Lex: So you knew they were murdered. It's not like you to pass up a
chance at revenge.
Lionel: I had no resources. I couldn't pursue it.
Lex: Then. What about the last 30 years?
Lionel: I couldn't bring them back. There was nothing I could do so... I
chose to move on, forget about it.
Lex: But you can't, can you?
Lionel: No. I owe you a thank you, son. Your grandparents were
murdered. They deserve justice. Oh, I was such a fool. I always thought
their murder could stay buried in the past.
Lex: We both know that's not gonna happen until we find out who did this.
Clark: Lana, how is Dexter?
Lana: I think he's just relieved that his name's finally been cleared.
Clark: Personally, I think I'd be more relieved knowing I wasn't getting
locked up again.
Lana: I am not quite sure why, but I think Dexter has you to thank for
Clark: You're the one who believed in him.
Lana: Yeah. He was wrong about the drifter.
Clark: I'm not so sure he was. Nothing would've happened to Louise if she
didn't fall in love with him.
Lana: I know what Louise did was wrong, but I can't help thinking she was
lucky. Even if it was only for a few days, she knew what it felt like to
really be in love.
Clark: It's too bad it couldn't last.
Lana: What if that's not the point? Maybe you have to be grateful
for the time that you spend together and stop holding onto what could've
Jonathan: What is it, Clark? What are we doing here?
Clark: I'm not sure.
Hirum: What are you doing with that thing?
Joe: I was supposed to return it to my father, but there's too many bad
memories attached. Thank you, Hirum.
Hirum: I can usually tell an honest man when I see one. I'm sorry you ran
into trouble here. There's plenty of good folks in Smallville.
Joe: I'll remember that. Congratulations on the baby. He's lucky to have
you as parents.
Hirum: If there's anything you ever need, you know where to find me.
Jonathan: Clark. What did you see?
Clark: He buried this here because he didn't want his father to have it.
It acts as some sort of journal. I think Jor-El was sent here as some kind
of rite of passage. Grandpa Kent was down here too. He told Joe that if
there was anything he needed...
Jonathan: What is it, Clark?
Clark: I don't think you and Mom found me by accident. I think you
