  • Lex Luthor—who may or may not possess a residue of Brainiac within his consciousness—is coerced into joining Grodds latest organization. Partnered with Dr. Polaris and the Key, Luthor is sent to Blackhawk Island to retrieve the Spear of Longinus, an ar

    The title reference refers to a passage in the Bible from the book of Mark 5:1-5, 5:9-

    They came to the other side of the sea, to the country of the Gerasenes. And when he had stepped out of the boat, immediately a man out of the tombs with an unclean spirit met him. He lived among the tombs; and no one could restrain him any more, even with a chain; for he had often been restrained with shackles and chain, but the chains he wrenched apart, and the shackles he broke in pieces;and no one had the strength to subdue him. ..

    This episode was okay, not what I would call a
    favorite, at least not yet. Maybe after I watch it again I will appreciate it more.

    It was great to see Grodd again..he has always been a favorite villian on the show since the \\\\\\\"Brave and the Bold\\\\\\\" episode.

    It was great seeing Lex again, the opening scene with him being chased in a van by the police was interesting. Although I would have very much liked to have seen an actual prison breakout like they did in Injustice For All\\\\\\\" The scene where Lex is seen riding in the van talking to an imaginary individual was a shocker.

    Grodds manipulation of Lex in his weaken state was unexpected, and it will be interesting to see how that plot thread developes. In my opion Grodd has no intention of honoring his pact with Lex. If Brainiac was dangerous, then Lex/Brainiac is extremely dangerous. Flash and Hawkgirls brother/sister relationship dynamic is always a breathe of fresh air. All in all a solid episode, though not a favorite.
