I'm not saying that you can't trust rural white folks, but it seems like whenever they appear there's always sacrifices to ensure bountiful harvests, torch burnings, and general unease with city folk.
Remember when Clark decided to get off his ass signified by his new red and blue costume at the end of the second episode of the season? We're now four episodes past it, and I don't think he's even worn it yet to fight crime.
Remember Darkseid, the all-consuming darkness that threatens to take over the world and remake in his own image? Yeah, neither do I.
It's feels like typical Smallville filler, though Lois knowing Clark's secret adds a little to it. And Clark found out that Lois pulled the Spear of Longinus out of his side! He wasn't saved, he was resurrected! Clark is Jesus!
With the scarecrow masks (ha, closest you'll get to Batman Smallville fans), the townsfolk kinda looked like the scarecrow from the Supernatural episode "Scarecrow."
Also, Clark's slow-mo slow-ass run to save Lois from the blue kryptonite fire was LOLZ. I do have to say though, the burn on his back was pretty hardcore. Clark loves you Lois, he just took a back full of fire for you.
Fire or knife indeed.
One reference to Cat Grant, about how they don't like her. Ha ha.
Nobody likes you, Cat Grant!
