And I'm still not sure of the details. I mean even with Lionel receiving and carrying out orders from Jor-El, why has he chosen to go along with them and be a better person? How did he go from the MB at the end of Season 4 to wanting to help Clark this season? But then why does he continue to urge Lex over to the dark side in some episodes, and then in others be self-righteous and try to make him feel guilty for his wrongdoings? And even when he supposedly had good intentions (like trying to take the company away from Lex to teach him a lesson about humanity), why did he act so MB-like in his behavior? Does the line "I have returned" ring a bell?
