What I’m Watching: Smallville

Smallville: Season 8, Episode 6 “Prey” (C-)

I’d think a man from Mars who was able to live among humans for years would possess a bit more subtlety than our good friend “Jones” does here. Receiving confidential, secretive identities from Clark sends him right to all their homes so that his source is immediately outed? Not exactly meteoric police work. I'm glad to see Davis back in the spotlight, especially since it's clear that he's going to play a bigger role now that he's been revealed as the killer. It's hard to decide whether he is aware of his destructive powers or whether he's actually innocent, and I'm still not sure. I'm sure all will be made clear soon. I know that I never used to say this, but I'm actually missing Lois, and I think bringing her back for more episodes and reducing the screen time of Chloe's support group would do this show some good. Also, Tess and Oliver should be featured more prominently every episode.
