    human looking Doomsday is a pilot! Noticed his name in the credits and found him. Now I can't remember if his character just disappeared or got killed off. I'm re watching BSG up to 4.0 that I have on DVD so I guess I'll figure it out eventually.
    I'm assuming you finally got around to those BSG eps. Yeah, SW played Crashdown on BSG in season one and then in the
    Spoiler:
    3rd or 4th episode of season two he was killed.
    Spoiler:
    Baltar shot him in the back.


    heh. I was watching the movie The Mist the other day and he was in that as well. And guess what? He died in that one too.



    Anyway...on to this episode. I finally saw it the other night and it only makes the fact that they killed Jimmy off even worse.

    I knew they whacked him back after this originally aired so I was not looking forward to this episode. I loved Jimmy and AA played him perfectly and he was cute to boot. I always liked him and Chloe together. They had their problems but eventually always worked through them. (I've been rewatching S5, S6, and S7 recently.)

    Frak comic book cannon...it's not like they have followed it to a tee up until this point. Wasn't Doomsday supposed to kill Superman? (Though I suppose since he didn't kill Doomsday that's a workaround and this wasn't the battle.) Granted I didn't follow this season too closely...have only seen about half the eps...but their upfront reason...this Jimmy was too old ...for knocking off a great character is crap. And any sympathy I had for Davis disappeared like that.

    Anyway, yep the fight was too short, but meh that's not why I generally watch Smallville anyway. I liked the friction between Clark and Oliver, and that for all of Clark's good intentions, it didn't matter anyway in the end.

    Will definitely have to go back and watch this season from start to finish. But yay! that it's now on Friday so I can watch it as it airs otherwise it always conflicted on Thursday.

    IMO always implied.

    Ok, this episode wasn't the greatest, in fact it was the worst season finale for Smallville ever, but it did set the scene for Savior, one of the best Smallville episodes ever. I guess it really is the darkest before the dawn.

    That's a good way to look at it!
