Smallville and Zombies?
10 October 2009 | by brussel_sprout-1See all my reviews

Okay, I think this was a good episode. It had a lot of moments involving development of the relationship between Lois and Clark, which we know to be inevitable. What was interesting is the previous comments noted by Metallo aka John Corben that The Blur lives apart from the 'rest of us'. It seemed to have an effect on the way Kal El just jumped back into Clark's life. As for Oliver's dark spiral, it only serves as a reminder that somehow Clark is set apart from the world. Jimmy's death inspired him to move on and fight harder, while Oliver struggled with his feelings. The only part I didn't like is the 'cure' does it help Tess?
