Last week on Smallville, Clark got transported into a vortex where he got a glimpse of what life would be like if he had never arrived on earth, which resulted in his newfound desire to go back in time to Krypton to save himself as a baby.

Expect more action to ensue in the episode “Quest,” which airs this Thursday at 8pm on The CW.

Warning: This article contains spoilers.

The 19th installment of the season continues to tap into the Veritas mythology and Lex's quest to learn more about whatever he can discover in Zurich.  Lex (Michael Rosenbaum) is attacked by a cloaked stranger who carves Kryptonian symbols into his chest, which seems to be a message intended for Clark (Tom Welling).

Meanwhile, Jimmy takes an interest in the symbols in the Kawatche caves, and Clark thinks again about their symbolism.  Later, Clark and Chloe (Allison Mack) team up to conduct an investigation, and along the way, they discover that one member of the Veritas clan has survived and is hiding in a church.  Clark and Lex race to be the first to find this mysterious Veritas member, who holds the key to Clark's survival.

“Quest” is written by Holly Harold and directed by Ken Biller, who has not directed an episode of Smallville since 2006.

Smallville also stars Kristin Kreuk as Lana Lang, Erica Durance as Lois Lane, Aaron Ashmore as Jimmy Olsen and Laura Vandervoort as Kara.

Joining Smallville's ensemble in this episode is Robert Picardo, who is known for his role as Richard Woolsey on Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis.  Besides his Smallville appearance, this 54-year-old actor has several upcoming movies, including Universal Signs, Chasing the Green, Sensored, and the 2009 animated film, Quantum Quest: A Cassini Space Odyssey.

Fans can catch Smallville every Thursday at 8/7c on The CW.
