Clark learns that one of the escapees from the Phantom Zone has landed in Seattle and slaughtered the entire crew of a working ship. Upon investigation, Clark comes face to face with a horrifying Phantom who sucks bones out of people, and a mysterious alien bounty hunter, intervenes on Clark's behalf. Back in Smallville, a patient with the ability to morph into different frequencies escapes for LuthorCorp's secret experimental lab, called 33.1 and seeks revenge on Lex by imprisoning him in another spatial period where he can see and hear everyone but no one can see him. Lana teams up with Chloe and Jimmy to try to find Lex before he is forever trapped in the alternate frequency plane of existence. Written by Anonymous

Some Shockers at Episodes' End
7 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Clark seeks out the third Phantom Zone escapee, while a meteor freak aims to get revenge at Lex in "Static."

A Phantom has massacred a port in Seattle, devouring people's bones for nutrition. Clark goes to stop him. Meanwhile, a meteor freak who escaped from Lex's secret test lab 33.1 gets revenge at Lex by trapping him in another realm of frequency waves. Clark's familiar Superman-logo looking crystal is unable to vanquish the Zoner, as it did the past one, Baern. Without a way to stop him, a mysterious dark man with glowing eyes comes to Clark's rescue. Meanwhile, Lana gives Lex the benefit of the doubt, claiming there is no 33.1. Near the end of the episode, Lex says quite a shocker concerning he and Lana's future.

'Static' is a little different episode, as a product of being directed by new crew member James Conway. However, the storyline involving 33.1 is progressed, and an important figure in the Superman story is hinted in this episode.
