Clark Kent: What are you?
Gloria: I'm just a girl that loves nature.
Clark Kent: You're not human. You're not even from this planet.
Gloria: No. But I think I'm gonna like it here.
Clark Kent: Wherever you're from, go back. Now!
Gloria: I can't. My world is gone. It was paradise. It was lush and green and full of life. But towers of steel replaced the forests, upsetting the balance of nature. So I tried to correct it.

Park Ranger? Try Alien!
7 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Clark battles the first Phantom Zone escapee, and relationships grow stronger, in 'Wither.' Mysterious deaths have been occurring in a national park near Smallville. Clark is suspicious of the reason behind it, and he's right- Gloria, the park ranger, is more than meets the eye. Meanwhile, Lex holds a costume ball with all proceeds going towards the revamping of Metropolis in the aftermath of Dark Thursday. Oliver Queen attends, and takes Lois Lane with him. The audience also finds out that Chloe Sullivan has a little thing going with a familiar name from the Superman story... Jimmy Olsen.

The appeal of this episode is the arrival of the first Phantom and a hint at Green Arrow's ability. Not a great episode, but a good one.
