I mean I think Clark is too dull and thick to know what his actual secret is, since when I cottoned onto the sum total of the massive secret he was hiding as he understood it is that "he is an alien with super powers" I really had to wonder how galactically stupid the lad is? Totally in the vein of Pushing Daises, he MURDERED LANA'S PARENTS!!!! For the first 6 seasons, he would have to not tell Lana that he'd killed her parents or she'd stop kissing him and inviting him inbetween her legs to make babies... ARRGH! That is some massive confliction dealing with the twofacedness that this girl would only "love" him as long as he persisted in a lie. More so you have to ask if the first "Meteor" strike wasn't part of some asteroid shield to protect his ship from the interstellar voyage which seemed to be immediate since Kryptonians totally use subspace and can use energy fields to create shields as well as build ships tough enough to take the worst licking space travel has to offer... That there's no way a mass that size could have been accidentally dragged through an other dimensional subspace to Earth. His father blighted the earth with mentally deranged demigods. I mean it seems that only crazy people have the mental drive to outwardly manifest meteor powers reflective of their inner turmoil, because lets face it sane people with these powers would just be competition for Clark's eventual manifest destiny. All this time he was supposed to have been making alliance and gathering footsoldiers but he never got so far into his training at the fortress to understand the legacy left to him. The meteors were effective threefold, first the initial devastation would hide the ship and allow it to land with out notice, and second the thousands of meteor Freaks popping up all over the world at exactly the same time puberty is developing Clarks Super powers was another camouflage effect planned out by Jor-El to hide his son inbetween a huge newly emerging population of Super humans... And third, and this is for the future, if Clark is really meant to take over the world, that is one hell of an Army that Jor-El built for him. Here's where it gets confusing. The Kents were chosen and vetted to rise Clark, but still their finding the babe of steel seemed to be an accident and amazingly complicated luck. There's no way that could have happened unless there was a Kryptonian agent left behind after the portals closed who arranged events to play out just so or someone had mesmerised/programmed Martha and Jonathan into rendezvousing with the crashed space craft and waiting infant. So really, the ship wasn't needed. And neither were the Meteors to hide the ship or the last son of Krypton's emerging abilities that would mark his as freakish and alone. All those Smallvillians had to die including Lana's Parents so that Clark could coast under the radar before he was ready to get things sorted. It's all dog wagging rather than the complications of mass transit. And this is without mentioning the three elements or Veritas. I might be over thinking this, but I seriously wonder if the writers on Smallville thunk at all about the implications about what a secret worth keeping all that time actually was... If the truth as I just said it were to become common knowledge Clark would end up owing the citizens and township of Smallville billions and Billions of dollars for an atrocious and unnecessary act of vandalism and terrorism... And why he never took credit for balding Luthor at the climax of last seaosn I will never know. Thy were both about to die, it was about the right time to finally give in to spite.
