Well, Smallville's hitting its mid-season slump. I was really hoping we wouldn't get it this year since they've changed creative teams. So far it's not so bad that Dave's gonna be saying "I told you so," but Clark's back to being Dick Clark to everyone again.
I do like what they're doing with Davis, bringing in more and more Doomsday elements with him. This could be good. It's still tied to Doomsday being a Kryptonian creation and that every death makes him reborn even stronger. In a way I might even like this version better, as that origin felt forced on the character after he became popular in the comics-- here, it's become foreshadowing and the way of introducing the character.
And I'm glad they gave some resolution to Kara! I hope this means we'll see more of her. (Although didn't she and John Jones not get along? I thought Clark sending her to him didn't really fit. Did they make up at some point and I don't remember it?)
