Storyline

While at a local high school, Johnny gets a vision of a student going on a shooting spree and must find out who it is before it's too late. With the help of Rebecca Caldwell as well as school principal, Johnny tries to locate the student, but also learns that Principal Rowin's tough policy may be hurting more then helping, while Johnny eventually discovers that they are looking in the wrong place for the wrong student.

Can this be considered rehash?
4 August 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A difficulty in making a superhero program (and that's basically what Johnny is, a superhero) is not to give the town a look like it's modern day Iraq, with different problems every single day, making me feel like if I lived there I would think the place is cursed and want to move the heck out. I think Smallville is going through a similar problem. Batman and Ninja Turtles also faced that issue, but it wasn't a big deal because half the point of those shows were to laugh at the fact that the townsfolk were always running scared from something. But with TDZ and Smallville we're not as forgiving, we just have to get over the fact that more problems will face Johnny's hometown that yours or mine, and that usually their issue will be over in 42 minutes, or a matter of days in DZ time. But what I'm wondering is if it's too much to go back to a problem that takes place in a school, per SW. They already did the school having an outbreak theme last season, so giving the school a Columbine one, isn't that a bit excessive? Maybe not. Nice to see Rebecca back, and I like how the writers force us to remember that her character has a history of working with children, it's like a payoff for those who have been watching the show and recall that this was her specialty by not outright explaining it in this episode. I like getting rewards like that and I always look for them, the "oh yeeeas, I remember that," things the occasional viewers might not catch but us "real fans" might. So, I dropped it a bit under the 8 mark because it gave the school another issue to face when they just faced one a year before. But Rebecca kept it fresh and the story was still a pretty okay one.
