A Slower Episode
13 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

'Slumber' is an accurate description of this episode, besides just describing the storyline. This episode kind of sleeps its way through from beginning to end, with nothing incredibly compelling about it.

Somebody has bought the Lana house. It is a girl named Sarah and her 'watchdog' uncle. Lana and Clark visit the house one day, and realize that Sarah's uncle is drugging her to remain asleep. However, due to Sarah's unique meteor-infected powers, Sarah reaches out to Clark in her dreams for help in overcoming the "Traveler."

This episode is solid, but not memorable at all. Perhaps there is one rather exciting special effects-related scene near the end of the episode.
