Storyline

In 1604, in southern France, Lana Lang's distant ancestor Countess Margaret Isabel Tharow and two other evil witches are condemned to be burned at the stake by Magistrate Wilkins, but Isabel manages to spit her blood on a symbol on a page of their mighty book of spells. In the present day, Lana buys the book on eBay, and by touching the blood-spotted symbol, resurrects the evil countess who possesses her body. Isabel/Lana uses a spell to let the other two witches posses Chloe and Lois. The powerful trio vows to pursue its quest for the three (actually Kryptonian) magical stones which can bring them unseen power. The trio enters a 'surprise' birthday party for Chloe in the barn of the Kent Farm and Isabel throws a spell to make the spectacle really hot, so Clark is one of many boys dancing and drinking in boxer-shorts when his appointment arrives, a representative from Princeton University, who is impressed in a way which can't amuse Clark's parents. The vicious witches cast spells ... Written by KGF Vissers

Most Fun!
29 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was the most fun episode of Smallville to date. Almost every one has its playful side, but this season has been a bit more heavy handed, so this was really a breath of fresh air. It also gave several of the characters a chance to step out of their usual mannerisms. Kristen Kreuk stole the show by believably playing an ancestral witch with a grudge to settle. Allison Mack and Erica Durance, on the other hand, hammed it up too much, and were much less believable in their witch-possessed bodies. For instance, it's hard to believe that after 400 years, the witch in Lois Lane would be most enamored by her breasts. But still, the fish out of water humor was fun, too. Clark vs. the witches was also a good time. As an extra bonus, new glimpses of the caves and information about the stones was a good treat. Some fans might not like this playful departure, but I did (obviously)!
