Absolutely BRILLIANT
4 February 2008 | by See all my reviews

well this was great. it never had the shocker at the start like season 2 and 3, but i still think that start was great and baffling.

and i didn't like the start episodes as of season 2 and 3 as much as this, nothing happened in them apart from the shocks.

this had great confrontation, emotion, story.

and whoever said Smallville makes good television, HA, don't make me laugh. They aren't going to answer all the series question in the opening episode of season 4.

I cant believe Locke tried to kill Jack as well, i like Locke more than Jack and Locke wouldn't have done that
