Laura Vandervoort made her awaited return to Smallville on Friday night's episode which was fittingly enough titled, "Supergirl". A really fun episode and I thought Laura was awesome in it. She had her full red and blue colors going on. Kara had this confidence to her that I don't think we've really seen in that character. Yeah, Kara still had her moments that drive Clark crazy such as saving the crowd at the beginning of the episode and fully showing her identity as a hero. She seemed to be the one that was having to show Clark some things that he wasn't realizing. That leads to her talking of how he still is unable to fly. That gets us to the training scene of him taking off but then stalling as he got way up in the air. He crashes back down to Earth landing in the barn. Hilarious scene. She also had to inform Clark of how Jor-El had disowned him and that Jor-El was now relying on her to stop this big bad that is coming. Saying the words big bad reminds me of the Buffy days and puts a smile on my face. The story of the episode also focused around Gordon Godfrey, played by Michael Daingerfield, who had written a book about how the super heroes are super menaces. He was of course overtaken by this dark smoke that arrived at the beginning of the episode which led to the book and the media blitz. He had a lot of plans including him planning to out Oliver as being the Green Arrow. That put Lois on the case to help protect Oliver including her framing Gordon in a club. Lois ends up not realizing what she is up against with Gordon. Kara and Clark make the save. The ending of the episode was one that will get people talking with Oliver deciding that it was time to come out of the shadows. He revealed to the press that he was the Green Arrow. Very good twist. This season has been awesome so far and if you're not watching it, you're really missing out. This Friday will be the big 200th episode of the show. What a landmark for Smallville to reach 200 episodes. It looks like it will be a lot of fun with them playing off of the show's past with the high school reunion. TV Guide has this exclusive trailer of the 200th episode. Really looking forward to it!!
