Storyline

While practicing motocross with Pete, Clark Kent falls down through a hole in an underground cave and meets a young Native American woman named Kyla Willowbrook (Tamara Fieldman). Kyla is investigating some mysterious ancient paintings in the walls of the cave, and she and Clark immediately fall in love with each other. Her grandfather Professor Willowbrook and some ecologists are fighting against the construction of a Luther Corp building that will destroy the caves, but generate 1,000 new jobs in Smallville. Martha becomes split between the both interests, but the blind Lionel is motivated only by greed and self-interest to keep the project open, while Lana rallies the rest of the town in a protest to stop the construction project. Meanwhile, a mysterious wolf-creature kills a construction foreman, and threatens Martha and the blind Lionel. Following investigation by Chloe, Clark believes that the Professor Willowbrook is a mutant with the power of transforming himself in a wolf. ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The Legend is Revealed
19 September 2007 | by Rcwilkinson123See all my reviews

One of the most crucial episodes of 'Smallville' up to this point, and probably one of the most crucial for the series, presents itself in the 31st episode of the series.

Why, you might ask? Because the man who is destined to become a legend needs to learn the legend himself. And that is indeed what Clark learns in this episode.

After falling into a cave while motocrossing with Pete, Clark comes upon a beautiful Indian girl named Kyla, who indisputably resembles Lana Lang. In the caves, Kyla tells Clark about the legend on the walls concerning the hero Numan, who shoots fire from his eyes, is incredibly strong, and will be sent from the stars to save Earth. Clark, citing his recently newfound ability, immediately considers himself while trying to disregard the legend as a hokey native tale.

Meanwhile, LuthorCorp is trying to construct a new building right on top of the caves, which would generate many new jobs in the town but completely wipe out the caves and the suddenly important legend that Clark so needs to discover more. In their retaliation, a mysterious, mutated Indian tribe member attacks Lionel and Martha. It's up to Clark not only to learn the legend, but find this attacker. Could it be his newfound love Kyla?

This episode is wonderful for many previously mentioned reasons. The presentation of the Indian legend is a great, fresh new take on the self-discovery of Clark.
