- see this is what Pete should be doing: giving back or taking a cue from Clark and helping people. This is good growth, not that he sticks around for long.
- Clark getting a call from Lana in the future. Notice the sports game on the radio.
- Who shot Lana Lang?! Or will shoot?
- Sheriff again. With a nod to the oddity that is Smallville.
- Oh no. writers Souders and Peterson! / Kenneth Biller director.
- How many of these vials are there? / Lex confronts Lionel about Metron labs. Because he wants to be put on charge
- Whatever happened to Lex wanting to restore his memories? Did they drop that?
- racist much Lionel?
- Uh oh. Bye bye Teng?
- Ohhhh. Clark confronting Lex about his knowledge of Teng.
- Lex spilling info. This is an interesting impasse between the two. Stepping close to the secrets they keep from each other. Lex being a Luthor and Clark knowing things.
- The farm? That’s not a safe place
- How did Clark not get there in time.
- Follow the tracks that were left Clark
- Everything falling into place
- What happened to the Sheriff’s involvement
- That’s not going to help Pa’s heart
- And now Chloe is knocked out. Head trauma all around.
- This is a perfect ep for the writers. A crime of passion which they love but wrapped in a Smallville story. Although we’re not really getting any motive. Or Adam not bringing up that this is all Lionel’s doing to spy on Clark.
- we’ve reached the future.
- Adam is looking for medicine
- He just kidney punched her. Yikes
- so how is she going to know where to call Clark? It was the hotline in the prologue.
- There’s a lot going on with the entire cast – and Clark in the middle. Is he being super careful not to tip that he has powers?
- Ah okay. He’s back at the Hotline
- So now Kryptonite can send signals through time. TV Kryptonite can do anything!
- Faster than a speeding bullet
- “Now I know why Lionel sent me to watch you.” / “I couldn’t escape him. How long do you think you can.”
- Bye bye Batman
- See – if he just would’ve said something earlier – that he was controlled by Lionel – this would’ve been fine.
- Lex almost arrested. / “I’ll help you bring down my father.”
- A new project head. Dr. Bergin.
- Right right. Lionel has a liver disease. That’s the phone call he had a bunch of episodes ago.
- Lana: “Maybe we have more control over our future than we think.” Nah. It’s destiny. Or at the very least, your show runners.
- Opera music. What? No. Lionel wouldn’t do this. What the fuck Smallville. That’s a grim ending for a show watched by youth.
- Lots of loose ends tied up. But it’s not as satisfying as other major episodes. Situational. But feels a little empty. Too over the top. The events move the story along but I don’t feel like the characters will change from any of this.
- Having the title be Crisis and dealing with a cry from the future, in the rain – almost like Flash does in DC’s Crisis. It’s a stretch but I’m going with it.
Next week: episodes 17-22!
