Smallville: "Escape" Review Season 9, Episode 15

"Escape" is first and foremost about relationships and it's definitely the episode's biggest strength. Lois and Clark have been fumbling through the semblance of a relationship for sometime now. While they make a cute couple they still suffer from their respective lives getting in the way of their time together. This week, they finally get that opportunity to be alone. Again, it's cute, and we've seen a lot of that from Lois and Clark but it's time for their relationship to evolve. The awkward "getting into bed" together scene is a phase I thought we'd left in the past with Lana Lang. Cute, yes, but Clark is a lot more assertive than that.

Later in the episode we thankfully discover that Clark has learned, from his father Jor-El, how to control his superhuman seed so he doesn't blow a hole threw the top of Lois' skull. I would have loved to have been a fly on the crystal walls of the Fortress of Solitude for that training session. For now we'll have to settle for the awkward, yet priceless, conversation with Chloe about the situation. It may not seem like much, but this is a big moment for Smallville, which has finally shed the ridiculous notion that Clark could damage a woman while having sex with her. I can't believe there were entire story arcs based on that silly premise.
