  • What I Like About Alicia

    Unsafe-Alicia (from "Obsession") is supposedly cured and returns to Smallville to start things back up with Clark. When she pushes for more and he turns reluctant, Alicia exposes him to red kryptonite, and the two go off to Las Vegas to get married. Meanwhile, Lana questions whether sex may prove the key to winning Jason back.

    An enjoyable episode that features the return of Sarah Carter (Alicia Baker) to the series. There was just something about the character of Alicia that fit well with Clark, and it's obvious the writers saw that for this 2 episode arc the character has all to herself. Sarah Carter and Tom Welling immediately connect in their scenes together. The date scene is really romantic and both characters really understand each other very well. At the same time, Sarah plays Alicia's hostility well when it comes to her scenes with Dr. William McBride, play well by John Pyper-Ferguson. You really do feel bad for Alicia as she might have to lose the only person who understands her. While Clark and Alicia's reunion is an good storyline, it's filled with plot holes like Alicia knowing about Red K infecting Clark. It makes no sense how she would know that or how she found that out. Whatever the case, the Las Vegas wedding and the bedroom scenes between Clark and Alicia are very entertaining, especially since Smallville has never gotten this intimate.

    Iconically, Lana faces relationship issues of her own as she decides to..uhh...make love with Jason. I have to say the scene where Lana tries to set the mood and seduce Jason was one of those unintentionally funny moments you saver! I'm suprised Jensen Ackles could keep a start face during that scene at it one of the lamest scenes Smallville's ever done. We know this relationship won't last, so why do the writers continue to force they're so called romance which isn't really there. Anyway, the episode ends with a touching scenes as Martha is angry at Clark for disappointing them, yet Clark realizes that his in love with Alicia and can't help the way he feels. Then Clark consouls Alicia after she tries to leave, which is great moment between the 2 characters and well acted. "Unsafe" is pretty good episode with no much plot or action, but the relationship between Clark and Alicia definately carries it well.
