Smallville 8.07 Identity (2008)

Clark’s efforts to keep his night-time activities a secret hit, at super-speed naturally, a big speed bump when Jimmy Olsen manages to snap a picture of him in the process of rescuing Lois. Meanwhile, there’s a memory-reading meteor freak-of-the-week in the area and he’s looking for the crystal that was taken from Tess.


After last week’s clunker, Smallville delivers a decent solid episode with a couple of great hooks including the pre-title sequence where Jimmy takes a snap of Clark doing his thing and the climax involving Chloe. I think it a mistake to reference Iraq but it’s what American television writers do when they want to make a journalist sound serious and responsible. On a better note, it was nice to see a flip side to season six episode Hydro (the one where Clark pretended to be Green Arrow) and that it results in Oliver Queen finally crawling out of his bottle.

This Smallville episode contains strong violence.
