  1. Aaron Ashmore knocked this one out of the park, but the highlight was Clark changing in the phone booth. Otherwise, this episode gets a big fat "meh" from me.

    And, my God, could Chloe be any more annoying? I wanted to punch her in the mouth so many times. So, so many times.

    I've noticed that this show seems to fall flat when Lois isn't in it. Hmmm...

  2. Anon 1:18, I couldn't agree more on most of what you wrote. From the very beginning, I have hated Chloe and Jimmy together and tonight was just another great illustration of it. While Aaron's acting was great tonight, this show is about CLARK. The fact that they have made a love triangle between Chloe, Jimmy and Davis just angers me that much more because of the fact that Chloe might as well be married to Davis because she doesn't give Jimmy the time of day. I have always been a big proponent of Chloe's, but lately I just can't stand her.

    As for Lois, I hated the fact that she was introduced in this series in the beginning, but now most epiosodes with her not in it are dull.

    With all that said, I still love this show with all my heart and wouldn't stop watching for any reason. I hope it continues to do well and I hope for a great end to the season.

  4. The have made the whole Doomsday storyline incredibly dumb by mixing Chloe/Jimmy into it. Why can't he just be an alien coming to kick Clark's butt!?!?!? This episode ruined Doomsday for me I think. Every single time the showed a scene with Clark/Tess it was ruined by going to Chloe/Davis. Also, going to a commercial break with the cliff-hanger being a stupid love triangle is horrible. Next time reverse it and make the Chloe scenes better by following it up with Clark.

  5. The reason this episode was Clark-lite was because we thought that Tom Welling would direct Hex, but didn't because of his minor illness.

    This episode shows why both Chloe and Davis need to go. Jimmy returned in a very big way much like Lois did in Infamous. The writers have been listening to viewers that the Chloe/ Jimmy relationship never worked. I just wished Kara returned because I enjoyed the Jimmy/ Kara relationship more.

    The Clark/ Tess relationship was like the Clark/ Lex relationship from the earlier seasons. I like it when Clark outsmarted Tess in that he got her drunk and cut her oxygen off when she tried to breath through the mask. As for flying, he basically jumped out and glided down so this was the writers way of teasing us with flying.

    There's another foreshadowing involving Doomsday from Jimmy's viewpoint.

    Solid filler at best, but not the best work by Septien and Meyer.

  6. This was such a sad ep. Aaron Ashmore did a great job! I'm so happy Jimmy is finally back!
    What he said at the end to Chloe was very true, she's practically never taken his side in anything.
    I also agree with you others, the fact that Lois wasn't in this one made it less interesting.
    It was okay.

  7. I liked this episode for the reason that I think it could lead to davis/doomsday and chloe dying in the finale, chloe dying would have a major impact on clark because she is his best friend, I like allison alot but I don't like how they write her character at times, she can be so whiny and weak, I think it could work if she did die, then the show could focus on lois and clark...

  8. I agree - Aaron did an awesome job!! I think its sad that Chloe took Davis' side over Jimmys. It seems to me like they are just trying to make Chloe not likeable anymore. I did like how Tess opened up to Clark, it was nice to see her drop the tough girl exterior for a minute, even if it was just bc she was trying to get Clark to open up to her! Makes me wonder what the rest of season has in store for us. Maybe Chloe will be the one to die.

  9. I loved this episode, but Jimmy was a complete jerk. He wish he were the one dying instead of Chloe.

    poor chloe - the writers seems to be turning her into the new Lana "get with the hero's arch enemy bitch" Lang.

  11. Being an avid fan of the show, primarily for all the Clark and Lois growth, I felt that this epi was okay. I wouldn't watch it a second, third or forth time like I have with the first 10 episodes of the season. Anything with Lois Lane gets a multiple viewings by me.
    I just think it's time for Chloe to be gone already. But all the little hints that it could be her that dies will just turn out to be another psyche out by the writers. But we'll see, I guess.
    As for the flight. I was truly hoping that it wouldn't happen. So many of his abilities were wasted on the Lang. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see his first flight be to rescue Lois Lane!

    I don't know about everyone else but for me, I just think it's time for Chloe to be gone already. Allison is a fantastic actress but the character is becoming very very played out. And as for all the little hints that it could be her that dies, meh, it will just turn out to be another psyche out by the writers. But we'll see.
    As for the flight. And as much as I freaking LOVE Tess, I was truly hoping that him flying wouldn't happen. So many of his abilities were wasted on the Lang over the years. Now I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see Clark's first flight be to rescue Lois Lane!!!!!! Oh heck yeah baby!!!!! :-))))))
