Lionel went to Reeves Dam with Lex to help Clark, taking a piece of kryptonite with him, and ended up using the kryptonite against Bizarro; this only made the phantom stronger. Bizarro then threw Lionel against the dam wall; Lionel was left unconscious as the dam cracked and began flooding.

BizarroEdit

Kara Zor-El (Smallville)

Lex is saved by a mysterious woman.

Lionel was dragged out of the collapsing dam by Lex when it finally gave way, but the two were saved by a mysterious blond girl. When Lex explained this, Lionel passed it off as simply Lex hallucinating while Clark saved them, until they saw from the forest debris that Clark was still fighting Bizarro. Lionel then regrouped with the others at the farm and helped Clark come up with a trap for Bizarro, leading to their search for the girl who saved Lex.

DescentEdit

Lionel Luthor4

Lionel's descent to death.

Lionel tried to warn Lex not to press him about Veritas, telling his son that Lex was actually the Traveler. Unfortunately, Lex did not believe any of this, and shattered the office window by shooting it. Lex tore the locket off of his father's neck and pushed him out the open window, letting him to fall to his death. Lionel had left his Veritas Key with Dr. Swann, who explained the organization to Clark, Lex, and Chloe, allowing to the retrieval of the missing pieces of the orb. Everyone later attended Lionel's funeral with Earth-3 Lex as well. Clark finally cemented the father/son bond he had with Lionel as well as the brotherly bond he regrew with Lex when he and Lex sprinkled dirt over Lionel's grave, the same thing Clark did at Jonathan's funeral.
