Lois Lane is furious at lover Oliver Queen for leaving instead of waiting till she 'makes it worthwhile' but ignores he witnessed a thug attacking a couple and was badly wounded by the carjacker he fought off. Clark reads an article about the Green Arrow striking there and drops by finding Oliver uncharacteristically careless and irritable; his X-vision sees Olliver injecting himself. It's a wonder drug developed for Queen Industries by Dr. Pamela Black, which almost instantly restores damaged tissue, but the scientist advices in vain against taking significant doses because lab mouse trials prove a major aggressiveness side-effect. Lex is vehemently against Lana -whose health problems are soon diagnosed a happy surprise- taking charge of fund raising for a half-way house, without telling her his reason for fearing contact with its clients, even on few occasions: he bribed Dr. Black to administer the wonder drug to its problem youths, one of which was the car-jacker. Martha Clark ... Written by KGF Vissers

Unbelievably bad
20 December 2006 | by See all my reviews

When I saw the teaser for this episode, I must say I was extremely excited. It looked as this was going to be an episode similar to "Arrow," which I really liked. I was disappointed, to say the least.

Almost everything that could've been good on this episode was done badly. Starting with the fact that the story is full of unbelievably dumb plot points, that could've made even a baby question their motives. First, is the story. The fact that Oliver Queen was getting a vaccine that will make him heal so he can be a superhero without those kind of problems was really good. I think this could've been used to make the fact that Oliver knows he'll never be like Clark relevant (which it is).

Sadly, the performance by Justin Hartley as the Green Arrow is extremely disappointing. I had really liked his work on other episodes, but in this one he was really, very bad. This episode actually made me wonder one thing that I didn't want to wonder... are the writers clear as to who is this show about? As far as I know, this is a show about Clark Kent and his becoming Superman, the Man of Steel. This is NOT a show about Clark Kent and Green Arrow, the latter's just a guest star.

On previous episodes (like Wither, Arrow, or Reunion) I'd really liked how the writers had handled the character, making him important but never deviating from the fact that this show is not about his adventures, but Clark's. In the case of Rage, this was not the case at all.

Then there's the whole Lionel/Martha unbelievably stupid kissing scene- well, almost kissing scene. I can't believe what they've done with the character of Martha. Not a year has passed since her husband died and she's already trying to kiss Lionel... who is incidentally, the man that was most directly responsible for her husband's death. Well, Jor-El too.

Then there's the computer-expert Chloe. She gets absolutely all the information she needs from her source on the chemistry labs, even the woman who manufactured the vaccine. This is so unbelievably stupid.

Todd Slavkin and Darren Schwimmer were one of the best scribes Smallville had ever had. They wrote the episodes that in my opinion had been some of the best in the series. But first they wrote Sneeze, which was an average episode, and now this... they really need to improve whatever it is that they're doing.

The only good thing I can say about this episode is the climax. Lex and Green Arrow pointing at each other, each with their own weapon of choice, and when they fire the crew really managed an awesome special effects job. Well, I guess there's another good thing I can say about this episode, and that is the dinner scene. It really made a contrast between the familiar Kent family reunion and the sad dinner at Lex's mansion.

I guess this is the way Smallville works, right? About 4 really great episodes and then an unbelievably bad one. I just hope things do get better. There really was a good episode in there, I just couldn't find it.
