Clark tells Oliver that he must kill Davis, but Clark deals with the fact that he can't take a human life. This leaves the justice league to take the affair on their own hands. Then, Rokk Krinn teleports from the 31st Century to give Clark another Legion time-traveling ring so Clark can exile Davis/Doomsday to the future. But in a surprising twist, Lois confronts Tess about her nefarious plans involving a mysterious crystal and in the fight, Lois accidentally finds Rokk's ring, and gets zapped into the future. Meanwhile, Chloe gets in the middle of Clark and Oliver's fight about Doomsday's human carnage, in which Dianah/Black Cannary and Bart/Impulse intervene. Jimmy finds out Clark's identity, leading to a fateful showdown when Clark attempts to use black kryptonite to split Davis from Doomsday and seal the beast in a large hole in the ground. But nobody is prepared for what Davis will do afterwords. Written by lneira1

Did You Know?


At the end of this episode Chloe gives a young boy Jimmy's camera and explains he might follow in his brothers footsteps, this may be an allusion to a younger Jimmy Olson due to the age difference of Jimmy, Clark, and Lois in the comics, movies, and cartoon series. See more »


When Clark is typing "Goodbye note" from the "Red-blue blur", the message is shown on the screen, and few seconds later the word "goodbye" is zoomed in. Above the "goodbye" is written "And if I die" which was not in the original text (when the whole text was zoomed out on screen). See more »


Chloe Sullivan: That's the reason I went with Davis, to protect Clark. That's the only reason.
Jimmy Olsen: It all makes sense now. But the way I see it, you are as much of a hero as he's ever been. What you have gone through. What you've risked.
Chloe Sullivan: And what I've lost. I've lost so much. The only thing I really miss is you.
Jimmy Olsen: Well, now you found me again.
Chloe Sullivan: [they kiss] I'm so sorry I left, Jimmy, but I promise, I never left you.

Not as bad as One would Expect
29 October 2016 | by themanofhopeSee all my reviews

Smallville Season 8 was the season that I expected to be absolute trash and it completely surprised me. The season had a lot of hate when it was starting up since the old writers of the show were leaving, the most interesting characters in the show which were Lionel and Lex Luthor left, the season's budget was even less then the last and lots of fans quit the show. But thankfully, season 8 proved everyone wrong. The season got a lot closer to the Superman mythos as Clark Kent became the Red/Blue Blur, he started working at the Daily Planet and Doomsday become the season's enemy. Doomsday was actually an incredibly smart decision for the season's criminal and he was very engaging and his story arc was done really well while the buildup of his character was near perfect. The season also gave more depth to characters that the viewers had lost interest in like Jimmy Olson and Olliver Queen aka Green Arrow. The freak of the week episodes were also done better in this season and some of the freaks were actually kind of interesting and more deep then you would expect them to be. With all that said, the season did have it's faults like bringing Lana Lang back which no one needed, not having enough action sequences compared to the older seasons and being a lot less interesting cause of the loss of the show's most valuable characters (Lionel and Lex). The season finale was also extremely disappointing and the final fight between Doomsday and Clark Kent was about 45 seconds long. Otherwise the season was pretty solid and brought hope back to people even after they thought all was lost.

Smallville Season 8 gets an 8.3/10.
