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.
