** Spoiler Warning, this post discusses plotlines that include Smallville episodes up to the episode that aired in the US on 10/18/07. **
As I stated before, I followed Smallville for the first two seasons. Then as it gradually left the comic book fan base for the teen soap opera fan base, I gradually left myself. I watch an occasional episode when I happen to catch it, but I don’t make it a point to sit down and watch Smallville. Last night, however, I set my DVR to start recording Smallville episodes because I was pretty confused about what I saw.
I happened to catch the season finale a few weeks ago. I hadn’t seen Smallville in quite a while, needless to say I was a little surprised to hear Clark tell Lana all about being from another planet (can I just say, FINALLY!). I was also convinced by the end of the episode that Chloe and Lois were girlfriends, in the relationship sense of the word. I found this confusing but was the conclusion I came to watching the episode.
This week, I find out that Lana didn’t blow up in the car (gee didn’t see that coming) and I find out that Chloe has been dating Jimmy Olsen?! So that kills my lesbian Lois Lane theory which I have to say from a comic fan perspective is a relief. Then hey there’s Supergirl, what is she doing in Smallville? I also so far have never seen Clark fly so I don’t know if he has figured that out yet or not, but if Supergirl can fly, hopefully he will catch on pretty soon.
Lastly, what happened to Clark’s mom? Was she just not in this episode? To satisfy these questions and to try and figure out exactly what is going on, I have started recording Smallville and will try and fit in a time to keep up with it, if anyone can shed some light on what I have mentioned, please do.
