Clark, Kara’s a lot of things… Reckless, headstrong, possibly psychotic. But she’s wrong about you.
-Chloe Sullivan, Smallville Season 7 Finale
It’s lines like this that make it 100% baffling that Smallville is headed for it’s eighth season. “Superman in high school” has become “Superman is unemployed four years out of high school, whines a lot about how things would be better if he had never come to Earth, and spends way too much time running to Metropolis.” The season finale raises a lot of questions about destiny and whether Kal El is here to save Earth or to destroy it, and it was actually a decent episode overall. When they do these story lines, you know, the ones related to the actual premise of the show, I don’t mind watching Smallville. I especially like episodes where they try to tie in Justice League or other D.C. themes. What makes me dry heave a little here is that I can now plan on watching at least fifteen episodes about “meteor freaks” that basically rehash and recycle episodes from every previous season.
