What I'm Watching: Smallville

Smallville: Season 7, Episode 8 "Blue" (F)

I do not even want to touch upon any part of this episode which involves any deceased member of Clark's family coming back to life or blue kryptonite which takes away Clark's powers. Its inane nature collapses upon itself, and it does the talking for me. What I am interested in is this stunning revelation that my new favorite character, the Daily Planet editor, is actually the presumed-dead Julian Luthor, a.k.a. Lex's brother. I am glad that Grant/Julian is not just another shady character in league with Lex but actually his flesh and blood. I just hope they do something interesting with it. His relationship with Lois, however inappropriate and annoying, is one of the only things keeping this show going.

"Smallville" still has a bunch of episodes left but the next one is not until December 13th. Stay tuned.
