    Huh, this episode looks interesting; I expect this to be an especially amusing episode given the premise.

    I think this looks like a very good episode. I like the sound of the storyline. I sure hope it rocks...After waiting so long for a new episode my expectations are kinda high!

    What? A new episode of Smallville? We're still in season nine, right? It's been so long I need a refresher course!

    Is this the episode where Zod and Clark were at the Fortress talking? Because I read the episode guide, and Zod doesn't know about the Fortress until a few more episodes when Clark is exposed to red kryptonite. By the way, in the trailer for this episode, were Tess and Zod in bed together?

    No, this is the filler episode before all that. It involves Lois and Clark going away to a B&B and finding that Chloe and Oliver are there as well. Awkwardness ensues.

    From the clip online I'm not looking forward to the episode too much. I'll check it out if I am home, if not, I'll stream it.

    This is also the episode with the Silver Banshee, which as an Irish-American I'm particularly looking forward to. I'm not thrilled about how she looks, I think they made a mistake straying away from the pure black & white look from the comics, but it could've been worse.

    I saw a picture that was supposedly the Silver Banshee & I thought she looked ridiculous...

    Which is a shame, because she's a cool-looking character in the comics and they got a beautiful actress to play her.

    I'm not really looking forward to this ep that much but it'll probbaly surprise me. However I'm super excited for the 2 eps after.

    I enjoyed the episode very much. While I was disappointed the ads on CW lied about the episode, oh well. thinking about it, the episode was supposed to be about the silver banshee not Clark confronting Zod about powers.


    My favorite part was the whole Shower with Chloe and Clark, I mean poor Clark, he didn't know what the hell was going on. First Chloe is attracted to him, then Lois walks in, and then suddenly Chloe comes to, realizes what's going on and runs away leaving Clark very confused.


    And the Clark and Chloe bed talk, funny but awkward as well.

    Mediocre episode overall; while there were a few amusing scenes the storyline was largely generic and cliche'd throughout, especially much of the dialogue. I'm sure they could've come up with better lines than, "Forever is a long time".
