Season 7 Episode 8


Aired Friday 8:00 PM Nov 15, 2007 on The CW



  • Trivia

    • The Dagger had gibberish Kryptonian on it. It spells out.... R T D S M E.

    • As established in "Memoria," Julian Luthor was born in 1992. That would make him 15 here, which is clearly impossible.

    • Kara's crystal looks very different in this episode than it does in previous episodes. In "Lara" for example, the crystal was rather thin, and had ribs, or finger grips. Here, it is much thicker and the grips are missing.

  • Quotes

    • Lois: (asks Chloe) Hey cuz, what's the latest headline?
      Chloe: Busy writing story...
      Lois: Looks like someone woke up on the right side of the bed this morning.
      Chloe: (hints that Lois slept with her editor) At least I woke up in my own bed.

    • Chloe: Blood and sweat on Clark Kent are never a good combination. Hey, listen, a little advice. Until your wedding day, refrain from wearing rings of any kind.

    • Chloe: Hey! Hey! Hey! I know the blue K is seriously cramping your style, but you don't have to grind your finger off!
      Clark: Chloe, I don't know what else to do. It's unbreakable.
      Chloe: Okay, look, considering what all the other flavors of kryptonite do, being normal may not be such a bad thing.

    • Lex: Look, for all I care, you can date every girl from the copy room to the boardroom, just not Lois Lane.
      Gabriel: I don't get it. What's wrong with Lois Lane, other than her bad spelling?
      Lex: The woman has an insatiable curiosity. It's only a matter of time before she connects the dots.

    • Chloe: Lois, gossip spreads faster than a bad rash. And sooner or later, people are gonna start scratching, assuming one thing--Lois Lane jump-started her career on her managing editor's Diehard battery.

    • Lara: I thought I would never see you again. It's... it's like a dream.
      Clark: A dream that started out like a nightmare.

    • Lois: What genius invented the keyboard? I mean, how hard would it have been to put the letters in alphabetical order?

    • Clark: Lana, we all make mistakes. I'm living proof of that. It's how we come back from our mistakes, that's what matters.
      Lana: How do you come back when you feel like you're at the point of no return?

    • Zor-El: Kal-El, the blood of the House of El runs through your veins just as it does mine. As much as you want to deny it, your destiny is to rule. And we can do that together as a family.
      Clark: You're not my family.
      Zor-El: If you weren't Lara's son, I'd end your life right now.

    • Gabriel: A compromising page 1 pic of our philandering mayor needs two eyes, a nose, and a mouth.

    • Zor-El: You're just as stubborn as my brother. Soon you could be just as dead. If you value your life, tell Kal-El to trust his uncle. You'll be better off in the end.
      Lionel: Kal-El is following his own destiny. I will do nothing to stop his course.

    • Clark: I saw what you did to Lionel. You don't want to save anyone.
      Zor-El: The weak must be sacrificed for the greater good. Something your father could never understand. He could have saved Krypton if he wasn't such a feeble-minded pacifist.
      Clark: Jor-El did the best that he could.
      Zor-El: Yes. And where is he now? What is he now? A voice. I'm here, in the flesh. Ready to serve my people.

    • Lara: (to Lana) You're worried I'll discover the darkness you're concealing. Don't let it overpower the goodness. You must fight it.

    • Clark: This is why I need you to give me a ride. I need to get this ring off my finger and go to the Fortress.
      Chloe: Look, Clark, my Yaris gets awesome mileage, but I seriously doubt it will get us all the way to the North Pole.

    • Lana: You grew up on a planet of human beings. It's okay to feel. Your emotions are part of who you are.
      Clark: Yeah. They're more dangerous than kryptonite.

  • Notes

    • Aaron Ashmore is credited but doesn't appear.

    • Terence Stamp is credited as Special Guest Star.

    • Helen Slater is credited by character name.

    • Kara mentions that she has been surfing with Jimmy while on a trip to Coast City. In the comics, Coast City is the home of Hal Jordan, Earth's Green Lantern. It's also an important city in Superman's history as well, as it was the city that was destroyed by the Cyborg-Superman, one of the four men who claimed to be Superman, resurrected after his battle with Doomsday.

    • Blue Kryptonite has appeared in the comics. However, its effects are quite different from that in this episode. Pre-Crisis, Blue Kyptonite hurt Bizarro like Green Kryptonite hurts Superman. Post-Crisis, it makes Bizarro speak normally and makes him kindhearted. Throughout the comics Blue Kryptonite does not appear to have any effect on Superman.
