Smallville 8.06 Prey (2008)

Clark is now spending his nights rescuing everyone he can but arrives too late on a scene of intense supernatural violence. He finds an unconscious Davis Bloome but Bloome later confesses to Chloe that, during inexplicable blackouts, he thinks himself responsible.


This is an almost entirely broken episode with random scripting and an entirely non-sensical story. Chloe and Clark have an interesting trust issue which is the best thing about this episode but it’s so badly handled (Clark apologises then disses Chloe all in the same conversation) that it undermines what could have been a fascinatig dialogue. I hate to say it, thanks to her run of good episodes where she wasn’t being bolshy, I missed Lois this week.

This Smallville episode contains strong violence, inferred extreme violence, gory and unpleasant scenes and non-sexual nudity.
