Smallvile 8x06: Prey  
Okay, belated thoughts on Prey.

Okay, so I watched Prey last week and I loved it. Sadly, no Lois, but we got a Lois mention and I'm not actually one that needs to see her every week. It's hard in a pre-Superman show because she can't be there when the action is going down because we don't have an official Superman yet. So she wouldn't have been able to do much anyway.

1. Chloe and Davis were great. I loved them. Great chemistry.

2. Why are they making me like Davis? No. Bad. I don't want to like him! Grr. But he's awesome. I loved it when he broke down to Chloe.

3. Clark and Chloe confrontation. That was very well done. I rather enjoyed that. Both had real reasons for feeling the way they did and so it made the argument much more real. I appreciated that.

4. Jimmy had something to do! I love Jimmy. I always have. But it gets tiring when he's just there for Chimmy angst. This is what Jimmy is good at. I want to see more photographer/reporter aspiring Jimmy. And I love that he is so enamored with the red and blue blur. That is such a Jimmy thing! He's such a hero worshipper :)

5. MM. A cop. OMG. Much love. I want to keep him. He is perfect in this role as sort of helper/mentor to Clark. He's great. I squeed whenever he was on the screen.

6. Clark was a little overzealous in this one, but it didn't bother me. He was called on it more than once and he is learning. One day, he'll find the balance. But right now, he's on the journey there. Love it.

7. Chloe and Isis. I really love Chloe at Isis. I love that she wants to help these meteor infected so much. Who else will do it? And it still lets her investigate and help Clark on the side.

So much to love in this episode and just not enough time to cover everything. And was meteor freak kid the kid from SPN's Bugs? He was bugging me (haha) all episode because I know I'd seen him before.

I am beside myself waiting for the episode tonight :)

I totally agree with you on the points you liked in this episode. It wasn't my favorite of the season but it wasn't bad. Better than a lot of s7.

Chloe and Davis were great. I loved them. Great chemistry.

They really do!

And I love MM ... he's awesome.

Clark was very hot and I liked him being proactive.

I did miss Lois though and I'm very excited for tonight's episode! :D

S7 had a lot of potential. I didn't even mind Clark and Lana together. It just had too many problems, but many of those problems I saw as a misdirection in S6.

But it was a fantastic episode. Identity was even better :)

Smallville, IMO, is never lacking in potential. It's just that it fails to rise to it most of the time. At least pre-s8.

I think that the Clana could've been handled so much better. I was very disappointed with the way she dumped him. I thought that their relationship deserved better.

S8 is wonderful though, thank goodness! I am very pleased with PS3! Good riddance AlMiles! ;)

IA with you!
I really liked this episode too! Except I thought it was a little more boring than usual. It REALLY needed Lois imo
But I loved Chloe/Davis and I loved Jimmy too!
And proative Clark? Too awsome for words.

I'm really loving the proactive Clark. I missed him so much.
