I noticed there hasn't been a thread posted for this past thursday's episode "Freak". So I'm just wondering what everyone thought about it?
I thought it was a great episode, especially with the twist with Chloe, can't wait for more on that end. Smallville has seriously grown, not only in character development but in story as well, love it!
I have to say that I was also disappointed we didn't learn about the Lana's bun in the oven. However, it was good to find out that Chloe is a meteor freak. She was right when she talked about her exposure, so it's good to see they've actually taken that step.
I can't wait to find out which powers she is developing.
As for Lex, I am disappointed. We all know he's involved, and we all know he's lying but nothing is ever done to makes us doubt his involvement when something bad happens. The show seems to have finally gone from a "Freak of the Week" show to "OH MY GOD, Lex is an evil *******" show or "HOLY CRAP, I can't believe Lana Lang is such a dumbass". At least her trying to find out and protect the secret was good, but then she goes and just accepts what Lex is shovelling and it just makes her look bad.

Lana Still trusts Lex because he has made grand gestures when she is around, while his under handed and evils acts are all hear say and rumours. Well the baby could still be a meteor powered, because at no time in the episode did Tobias take his glasses of around Lana, so we still don't know for sure.
As for Chloe being a meteor freak, did not see that coming, but now I think about, it does make sense.

Boy you sure hit the nail on the head there."HOLY CRAP, I can't believe Lana Lang is such a dumbass". At least her trying to find out and protect the system was good, but then she goes and just accepts what Lex is shovelling and it just makes her look bad

Don't blame me, I voted Cthulhu
it doenst really matter about lana bun since
and chloe is not the only meteor freak
It's funny I say that personally because I use to love Lana in previous seasons and I use to hate Chloe, now it's the other way around. I'm just tired of her always hating Clark with Lex every week yet Clark saves her and Lex's life almost every show. I mean every week it seems like Lex and Lana just like to gang up and hate on Clark. I'm really getting sick of that plot line they have going. Anyways I guess we'll see.
Never a fan of hers but I can only stomach so much of her hypocrisy.
The revelation that Chloe is a meteor freak is interesting. Wonder what power if any they will reveal for her. Great Chloe/Clark friendship moment at the end. "Then consider me your own personal bomb squad."
IMO always implied.
I'm guessing Chloe's power has something to do with computers or technology, kinda like Micah on Heroes.
yah, but that wasn't the real cloe that he was talking to.
Does anyone remember a superheroine in the DC universe that had the first name of Cloe?
And the thought of her as the tower for the JLA just rocks.
Things we'd like to see in our favorite scifi...
I have the biggest hunch that Chloe wont get any sort of powers or she'll only have something very faint. But hey, it may also be what's left of her truth powers from season 4? I'm surprised no one else bothered to make that connection.
I just hope she wont die.
As for Lana's child... oh god is this ever getting boring. I keep expecting her to misscarry every episode that comes up. I mean, she fell through a window and almost hit the ground-- caught or not, it's a miracle that her baby survived that drop. What was it? 30 feet?
It's nice, however, to see her relationship with Clark going back to at least friends. The whole "I hate clark but love Lex as a rebound" thing was getting kind of repeatative.
I'm starting to wonder if powers are only activated by certain incidents. Such as when, for example, that guy got bitten by the bugs, that event made him into something bug like. Maybe Chloe hasn't manifested a power yet because she hasn't been in an event like that.
This Chloe-meteor-freak thing is FAR more interesting than anything to do with Lana. I hope they ditch the Lana business and go with this instead.
I liked this episode, despite Lana being a "dumbass" (no disagreement there from me) and Lex being stagnantly evil. That's what it's become. Stagnant. Lana or the baby must die for it to become interesting for me lol...
Creepy with that meteor freak scanning and GPS...that was the part I really liked. And the heat burning out the tracking device - yikes!! but great. Great chloe/clark friendship
Great Clark and Chloe moments with the Heat vision and Xray, and dealing with her being a meteor freak. I did not see that coming. Great writing
Lex lying to Lana shows how evil and deceitful he is. Makes me think the kid isnt his as he swears "on the soul of his unborn child" he did nothing...
Science Fiction is an existential metaphor; it allows us to tell stories about the human condition.
Isaac Asimov once said individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinder critics and philosophers of today, but the core of science fiction, its essence has become crucial to our salvation if we are to be saved at all.
They're gonna save Chloe's powers for a pivotal moment when she'll have to use them to save somebody's life. Probably Clark's.
Hm. Are there any DC female heroes they might be thinking of setting her up as?
