The secret is out! ...Well at least it was for a little while. When I reluctantly heard in the rumourmill that Clark was going to reveal his secret to Lois, the cynical part of me knew it was too good to be true - and I was right. This, the fifteenth episode of Smallville was one of the better ones of the season. I liked that we didn't see any repercussions of Lana's departure, and Clark didn't mope about like a lost puppy. Instead, we began focusing on the newest and altogether more interesting pairing, Clark and Lois.
This episode, although very obviously about people fearing what they don't understand and Clark's secret being known to the world, was really overshadowed by the Clois drama. I rejoiced a little inside when Clark picked up the desk Lois was standing on and she finally saw and knew the real him. However, in true superman style the reverse had happened by the end of the episode and Clark and Lois couldn't even be honest enough to tell each other how they really feel. Which in all honesty, I found highly frustrating. However I suppose it is well written as I know I will continue to watch not just because this season of Smallville has seen it come back to what it once was, a great show, but also to see Clois finally become a reality. I just hope they don't leave it too long.
Doomsday, AKA Davis did surprise me slightly in this episode. We all knew someone would have to be sacrificed due to Clark using the legions ring and changing events, and I'm pretty sure no one would shed a tear over Linda Lakes demise. However, in a way Doomsday leaked over into Davis' persona which he hasn't done before. Which makes me think that eventually we will lose Davis altogether - even when he isn't the beast, and he will just become a violent and extremely dangerous entity.
I felt Clark was naive in this episode as well, which has been a trait lacking in him this season. I have said before like I felt he had grown up, but him thinking that the world would just accept him for who he is, knowing how celebrities get hounded was a unrealistic notion. Overall, I good episode. I enjoyed Lois' reappearance, it was a refreshing change, and I have really missed her. I just hope she and Clark sort themselves out and get together soon...
