A clan of killer cultists made trouble for Lois and Clark, and Tess discovered Alexander's dark side on last night's episode of 'Smallville.'
Erica Durance's spirited performance was the best thing about this ep's goofy A plot, which featured a blue kryptonite-lovin' religious cult bent on sacrificing Lois to their vengeful god. Durance's eyes and voice really sold the terror in Lois' heart when she was stuck under that raging blue fire and surrounded by an army of Cletuses and Jebediahs.
But it was Lois' defiant and independent spirit that got her in trouble in the first place. During a drive out to the country to cover the Cherry Festival (!), Clark revealed that he pulled some strings to get her out of town and keep her from covering the anti-hero protest in Metropolis. Lois, as we all know, is the poster girl for the pro-hero mindset (It's not really a "movement" yet, is it?). Clark was only trying to protect her from the potentially violent wackos on the other side of the issue. (Geez, when did Metropolis become such a hotbed of ideological conflict?)
But Lois is Lois. She didn't appreciate Clark's sneaky efforts to keep her safe, and she sent him walking in the hot sun after their tire blew out on the road. Hoping to get back to Metropolis, she hitched a ride to the nearest train station from a creepy little country girl on a horse and buggy.
