Smallville TV Series-Season Two
Season Two had a fewer "freaks of the week" appear on the show, and instead focused more on character development, especially on Clark discovering his true origins and accepting his destiny. Clark began hearing calls from his biological father, Jor-El. A memorable moment of the series was the appearance of Christopher Reeve, who played Superman in the 70's and 80's film serials, as Dr. Virgil Swann. Swann provided Clark with information of his origins, in a "passing of the torch" moment between Reeve and Welling. Lex's relationship and short-lived marriage to Dr. Helen Bryce was also a major highlight of the second and third seasons. The show volleyed Clark and Lana's relationship, never actually allowing the two to become an official couple for most of the first 4 seasons.
Clark starts the new school year with a new ability: heat vision and a new vulnerability: red kryptonite. He shares his secret with Pete and continues to battle villains infected by green kryptonite, but the quest to discover the mysteries of his own origins occupy most of his attention this year. Pete becomes even closer to the Kent family after learning Clark's secret. Lana moves in with Chloe and Gabe Sullivan after her aunt moves away and finds her biological father, Henry Small. Lex battles fiercely with his father for control of LuthorCorp while falling in love and marrying Dr. Helen Bryce. Chloe tries to resolve her conflicting feelings and complicated relationships with Clark and Lana.
Season Two takes place during Clark and his friends' Sophomore Year at Smallville High School.
