So are they going with the

Kara is older, she left Krypton before Kal, and has been here longer angle? If so will she be stronger and faster due eing exposed to yellow rays for a longer time then Kal? I mean hell, she's flying and she seems like she's been doing for some time.That's what they're doing with the current Supergirl in the comics


It kinda seems that way based on what I saw last week.

Thanks Jadzia!

Looking forward to seeing tonight's episode and learning more about Super Girl.

I wonder if she will keep the name Kara or go by the Alias "Linda Lee" as in the film, which sucked BTW.

The best part was when Clark caught Kara by the legs and body slammed her into the ground. Nice.

I like the new editor, Michael Cassidy is a good addition to the cast (he was good on "The O.C.", and the only one worth watching on "Hidden Palms"). Enjoyed him interjecting some family competition between Lois and Chloe.

Kara's presence is going to ground Clark to Smallville for a while longer. He's going to need to give her some secret identity lessons, though.

Spoiler:
A cloned Lana?! Did I miss something from last season? I know Lex had all those experiments going on, but this seemed to come out of nowhere.

And Lois getting it on the noggin twice for trying to get a scoop on the spaceship seemed a bit much.

The new editor reminds me too much of that quack Kevin Trudeau, but maybe that was an inspired bit of casting. They're both very feisty and cocky.

certainly didn't take long for him to find her even if she did "leave a trail for him to find." should be interesting to see how that story line develops.

clark manhandling kara was pretty funny. kara is certainly good looking

Lex finding Lana so fast, Lana being cloned, and Lois getting hit twice were all pretty lame.

The new editor seems ok.

Kara was pretty cool. Kinda of surprised she didn't know about Krypton. With another hot girl in, it is getting crowded. I think they really should have gotten rid of Chloe in the finale. Her character just feels like even more of a filler now.

Not enough Kara but I still liked tonight's ep.

I don't care about Lana, Lois, or Lois' cousin on this show and Lex needs a "Mercy".

Was Mercy ever on the show?

Solid episode. I don't really like the Lois/Chloe thing and them working together, but i do like the new editor guy, great addition. The Lana Lex story is getting a little tired, but if thats what they need to do to make him more evil that is a good thing. Loved Kara, that actress is beautiful, and has some great chemistry with Tom Welling. I am looking foreword to see what this season has to offer, interesting story line with the government knowing about the ship/crystal. I love Smallville.

Yes Giantobo. That's the "angle" they're using.

I have to agree. This was a really decent episode! Just about everything really worked - and well! Let's hope the writers can use everything they introduced and spark out with to keep the stories going like this every week!!!!

Great episode, I thought. Lots of mythos, and Clark seemed really Supermanly helping Kara out. Of course, Lana returns to Smallville next week, so we'll get lovesick Clark who could care less about his destiny because 'LAH-NAH?'

Great Episode. Just give me Kara flipping out trying to kill Clark, due to her fathers programing, and I'm happy.

Another top notch episode (season is off to a great start). For some reason I was ROFL during the "That's what happens when you touch my stuff" line.

I'm shocked you guys all liked the editor. The more Smallville I watch (and I've loved the show since the beginning) the more I feel like I'm watching Kid Nation. That dude's, like, what - 25, 26? Retarded. It even sounded like they had to throw his voice to make him sound older. Bring back David St. Hubbins as Perry White, I say.

I liked Michael Cassidy too. Young and nice to look at but how can he be the Editor of a Newspaper at his age?

Enjoyed the episode although the actress playing Kara could use a bit of help in the acting Department.
I thought it was pretty dumb that Lex could find Lana that quick but I guess they had to get her back.
So I wonder when we are going to find out more about Chloes powers.

Considering Clark's mom (now only a guest star at times) is married to David St. Hubbins, that's probably not going to happen easily.

Loved the 1st two shows, everything seemed to be clicking.

So, Lana really did die, just like the writers said, "one of the main characters will die".

Season 7 is shaping up to be a real "Super" season.

One small point, when Kara landed next to her space ship, she was standing next to some Kryptonite but felt no weakness.
