Keeping my fingers crossed that it continues to be as good as 'Arrow'. The premise sounds pretty good, so here's hoping.

The next episode to watch for is "Justice". And you don't need to be a rocket scientist to know what that's about.

Holy shit! I didn't realize they were actually going to do that so soon. Fan-tastic!

I'm not getting too excited until I actually watch that episode. Because of rights issues,
Spoiler:
there will be no Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash or Green Lantern sightings. They will be replaced by Green Arrow, Impulse, Cyborg and Aquaman.

I actually had to look up the difference between Flash and Impulse. Part of me feels better that I had to do that. I always assumed that the appearance of Bart Allen in an earlier episode *was* The Flash. Apparently not. Still, even if this is a low-rent edition of JL, it's still pretty cool. Takes Smallville in a direction I didn't anticipate back in the first couple of seasons.

I can't understand if they have rights issues with characters shown in previous episodes.

Bart Allen hasn't been Impulse in many years. A few years ago he became Kid Flash, and now he is The Flash. So, when it comes to the show who knows what they'll call him. And I don't know how you could say that Green Arrow and Aquaman are replacing Batman and Green Lantern, when all of them have been League members.

Spoiler:
Yes, at times they were members of the league but I'm referring to the main core members and based on the spoilers that I have read, those two are in fact replacing/substituting for Batman and Green Lantern as original members.

Again Aquaman was always an original member of the Justice League, so it's not a fact at all that he's replacing/substituting for anyone. He's 1 of the Big 7 (Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter, and AQUAMAN). Green Arrow was the first member to join the Justice League outside the charter members making him the 8th member. The only character that isn't or hasn't been a Justice League member that is appearing in the episode is Cyborg.

I knew Rhia (sp?) was still alive.

Not a bad episode as far a FOTW episodes go.

I thought it was an okay episode (though the Excelsior kids flashback didn't do much but confirm Lex's loser status as a teenager).

The resolution for the FOTW was rushed once again.

Lois's investigative bent continues to be showcased.

Chloe's reaction to meeting Ollie was cute.

So Rhia is on earth...

Not the best Lex flashback episode, but it was still pretty good. The Kryptonite FOTW was bleh, but it's the first one in awhile so it will slide.

I did like how they set up the next episode, Fallout, in the background of this episode. I would like the show a bit better if they started to do that more, as every episode feeling like a standalone and never being mentioned again gets a little repetitive.

Of course, with

being a special guest star next week, I'm hoping I'm not laughing my ass off during the entire episode.

Not as strong as last week's epsiode, but still an improvement over some of the things we suffered through the past two seasons. Overall, this year is shaping up to potentially be one of the best yet.

The villain was meh and I got a low-rent Final Destination vibe from the first kill and the car crash but the character stuff let me look passed that. I also like seeing Ollie kick the crap outta Lex.

BTW, how did the second guy die. The station over here cut off when he got in the limo in favor of commercials.

They still list him for some mysterious reason. Perhaps he migh come back in some form similar to what happened in the Brainiac episodes?

Decent episode, as other have mentioned above i didn't care for Lex's flashback and it really didn't do much for me in terms of establishing his character, but I enjoyed it.

On the flipside of that, I actually wish they would do more Lex flashbacks. He is such a complex and interesting character, I would love to see more interesting and character developemental flashbacks.

I liked the angle the show is taking in terms of locating the zoners with Chloe using the satellites to find the craters. Cool

Loved the mention of Gotham.

Lana getting knocked out AGAIN and getting a concussion is getting VERY tiring, that girls damn brain should be mush by now.

Loved Oliver kicking Lex's ass when they met in Oliver's place.

More long hair Chloe is always good

Bart Allen is certainly not the Flash. That poor excuse for a series is perhaps the worst DC has at the moment. The Flash will only be back when Wally West shows up again.

Not that I have been watching much, but does Oliver know about Clark's super powers?

I'm waiting for Oliver and Lex to have the conversation about Clark just waltzing in on them anytime he damn pleases and they bitch about how utterly annoying that is.

lex must have shit for security, either that or he once told his guards that those high schoolers he was hanging out with were allowed in and never remembered to change their orders, as clark isn't the only one that has a long record of just walking into the mansion over the years
