Clark is attacked by the Persuader in his barn, but before he is killed a trio of superpowered aliens, called the Legion, shows up and saves him. While inhabiting Chloe's body, Brainiac informs Davis that he will soon become the creature "Doomsday" permanently, and places him in an ice cocoon for the metamorphosis. Rokk, Imra, and Garth inform Clark that today was the day he was supposed to destroy Brainiac for good, but because the only way for him to do that will be to kill Chloe. Brainiac begins sucking the knowledge from every human mind through the world's computer network when he is attacked by the Legion. Before the Legion can kill Chloe Clark intervenes and convinces them to focus their powers and pull Brainiac out of Chloe. Afterward, the Legion takes what is left of Brainiac with them back to the future to reprogram him for something positive.

That was a good episode, but I think the last shot of Doomsday was the best part.

I liked the Legion (all except Lightening Lad) and the mention of Brainiac 5 was cool. It was kinda funny hearing them talk about his cape and flying so much. You could tell Geoff Johns wrote this episode.

I'm a little tired of the Clark/Lana talking for 30 minutes at the end of every episode so that was boring to see again. It's a little disappointing that Lois and Jimmy weren't in the episode.

They're still moving in the right direction with Season 8 (at least IMO) - Can't wait to see Doomsday in the next few episodes now.

Yeah, that's not at ALL what I thought Lighting Lad would be.... The other Legion members, though, were quite well done.

I enjoyed the episode very much. I think it had an interesting concept and it gave the audience a feel of "but wait, there's so much more to come". I agree about the Lana moments being long-winded. I can appreciate that they want to make the most of Kristen's time, but heart-to-hearts with Clark are a little old. I thought Allison Mack was exceptional in this episode.

Yeah, she was good. Her "lost memory" didn't stay lost very long though.

It's spelt Lois.

I thought this episode was pretty good, although out of the regular missing cast members, I thought Oliver should have been in here.

I don't read comics at all, but I thought the Legion members were pretty good and their powers are pretty cool. All in all, it was a pretty good episode.

Since Clark now has a ring where he can contact Legion members, does anyone think he'll ever use it?

I'm glad that Chloe remembers who Clark is. If she forgot he charater development would fall back to early season four, with the exception of her marrage to Jimmy. I fact the scene in "Abyss" when Chole can't remember Clak's abilities was over done. I mean it almost seems like she's doing a lame attmept at covring up or not acknowleging Clark's abilities. I'm glad her memory was restored and that she wasn't killed off. Ok, so who thinks that Brainiac will be back? (hint Saturn Girl makes a reference to hoping "that Brainiac 5 will be more useful")

YAY!!! Chloe got her memory back thank god! Couldn't be more happier! :D:D:D

Excellent episode, loved it. And go figure I actually liked Lana too, never would have thought.

I thought that was just a reference to the comics so if he does return he'll probably be a member of the Legion. (probably)

Very good episode last night. I was very impressed with the Legion, and loved all the references they made about what Clark will become. And Doomsday at the end there, was so awesome.

It says a lot when my favorite part of an episode this good is the quick set up for the rest of the season at the very end of the episode.

This episode was incredible. You gotta love all the Superman references. Hopefully the Legion will show up in a future episode.

Only thing which Should have maybe been in the Episode is Oliver talking to Clark about Chloe maybe, Lightning Lad was abit irritating but he kind of made you think would any of us be like this meeting someone who is a pillar of history.

Lana normally does my nut in but she was ok this ep!

This episode was almost the perfect episode, unfortunatly I'm not a huge fan of the Lana thing/ She was great early on in the show, heck she was still pretty good up until season seven. It's nothing agains Kristen Kruck, I think she's a great actress. I just think that the show needed to move on a lot sooner. But besides that it was the perfect episode.
