  • Her scenes with Jimmy seemed sweet, but they lack the chemistry she has with Clark, and especially Davis

      “Abyss” is the ninth episode of season eight of Smallville on the CW. This episode was fantastic and really set the stage for a huge confrontation between Clark and Doomsday, who will apparently emerge from the new character Davis.

      The mood of this episode was dark and dreadful, as if something bad was going to happen regardless of what Clark managed to do. His best friend Chloe starts losing all of her memories. Although this sort of plot


      device has been used in a lot of different shows in a lot of episodes, it was really effective here. The scenes with Chloe losing individual memories were atmospheric, almost as if they came from a comic book or graphic novel.

      The episode focused only on Chloe, Clark, Jimmy and Davis, so it gave the viewer a lot of time to contrast and compare the various men in Chloe’s life. Her scenes with Jimmy seemed sweet, but they lack ...


      • the chemistry she has with Clark, and especially Davis. Davis makes Jimmy seem like a little kid, and that is not the sort of comparison that bodes well for a guy hoping to get married the next week.

        This was a great episode because it pushed the plot forward in so many ways. Chloe is cured, but doing so allows Brainic a chance to make a much more valuable acquisition. Brainic’s messages about Doomsday will excite almost all

        comic book fans, because it looks like we are finally going to have a supervillian on the show capable of going toe-to-toe with Clark. Clark will have to do anything he can just to survive.

        Even without Lois Lane or the Justice League or Tess Mercer, this epsiode still rocked. I cannot wait to see what happens with Davis, and whether Chloe will really get married next week. I give this moody, intense episode a 8 out of 10.
