Smallville: Clark Continues to Evolve
Interesting episode. Clark is finally venturing out in to the big bad world to protect everyone, not just the denizens of Smallville and Metropolis. It's about time, Clark. We're glad to see you stretch your superhero muscles.
So what did you think of the mysterious figure who helped out Clark in Seattle? We've got a couple of guesses. Our first though, on seeing the red flash and glowing red eyes as he flew away, was that it was the android Red Tornado. But the half-eaten Oreos tell a different story: they're the trademark addiction of J'onn J'onzz, the Martian Manhunter. Either could be an interesting addition to the growing Justice League.
We admit we were surprised that Clark left Lex to fend for himself, but we're glad that Chloe, Jimmy and Lana stepped up. Apparently geek boys have their uses! We can totally see Jimmy obsessing over Ham radios as a kid. Nice job saving Lex, although he did prove he's not to be trifled with by stabbing the bad guy. Was that necessary to protect himself and Lana, or just Lex's bad side coming out?
Finally, what do you think of Lex's proposal? We can't help but think that marriage won't go well, but that may be influenced by our knowledge that comic book Lex was married eight times. Perhaps they should have pursued couples counseling instead?
