I loved this episode and gave it a 10. For the second episode I thought it was one of the best. For example in the 1st season, does anyone remember the Bug Boy? One of the worst. Smallville has come a long way.
Lots of Clark; Lois and Clark the beginning; Action & Plastique; intro Davis; bad @ss Tess; BBF Clark and Chloe interaction; start of an evil team; classic Clark messing up on purpose on the obit so Lois could help him. If she only knew; beginning of Doomsday. The actors gave it their best.
That's the short version. The new Metropolis location looked awesome with the crises. I think the actors like it that they don't have to go on location. This is sizing up to be an awesome season.
