    I thought the episode was first rate the story is finally falling into place and like the reviewer wrote the writing was spot on and it looks like metropolis is were the action is so buckle up super fans looks like this season could get interesting.

    I was also very impressed with the episode, particularly with how hardened Clark has become. Last season, he was finally acting like Superman in terms of going with his gut and knowing he could really change the world. Now, I see him being tempered into Superman by harsh experiences and by his newfound that comes from a person who never gives up, even if he's in another country, near-death and without his powers. The determination he had in his repeated escape attempts and the confidence he strode with while looking for Chloe and telling Green Arrow he didn't need a babysitter were both awesome. Tom Welling's really becoming Superman.

    I thought it was a nice opening to the season. The whole cellphone number quickly tracking them business was a bit much for me. I would have thought that if they are communicating clandestinely then they would have disposable cellphones that couldn't be traced to their secret identities and would be changed regularly. Even if they did have sophisticated encryption that only Chloe could hack into. At least now they know they need to get new ones.

    I liked it myself. They finally made Clark a more proactive character. They also made him more believable as a leader, which he should become this season. Next week is a freak of the week, but at least she references a DC villain and they will also be doing an episode soon where Clark decides he needs a secret identity. Though how they transition to that is going to be a problem since he never wears glasses or acts nerdy as Clark. I'm really glad we'll see more Erica Durance this season. She's great as Lois and the dialog between her and Clark was fun. I am hoping to see some really good banter. So I am looking forward to what they do this season. Especially when Geoff Johns guest writes an episode with the Legion of Superheroes.

    My family was somehow dissappointed to see that much change in Clark, hardning of his character was a bit too much for my 14 and 15 years old. We all hope that he will be back with Lana who represent the the first and real love he ever had.

      Oh I agree Tom is the hottest Clark/Superman ever. Love the new "Dark Knight" look of the sets and his "Matrix" like costume. I've heard it's doubtful Welling will don the tights. That's okay because I don't think I could take it. The whole cast seems to have a new zest in their characters. Keep it up writers. You may just gain some new fans and bring back some old ones.
