Storyline

Clark confronts Bizarro, the last surviving escapee from the Phantom Zone, who has taken Clark's physical form and has all of his powers, but none of his weaknesses. The ensuing fight causes the dam to break and a torrent of water rushes towards the land. Lex, having just been arrested for Lana's murder, is submerged under water in a patrol car, but is saved by a mysterious young woman, who is a Kryptonian living in hibernation in a spaceship at the bottom of the nearby lake. Lois manages to pull Chloe to safety but her cousin is pronounced dead at the hospital. Chloe manages to revive and learns more about her meteor-rock powers. Also, Lionel is swept away by the flood, but is rescued by a mysterious person. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

Lex Luthor: You're the phantom. You took Clark's body.
Bizarro: Just a few cells. Clark's still alive. He's out there. And you will help me kill him. I need meteor rocks. A lot of them.
Lex Luthor: I'd never help you kill Clark.
Bizarro: Lex, redemption doesn't suit you. Why protect a Clark Kent who hates you when you can help the one who wants to be your ally? It's what you've always wanted. Isn't it, Lex?

Bizarro
14 April 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The season 6 finale was one of the high points in Smallville's entire 10 year run, so my expectations were about as high as it could get for the season 7 premiere "Bizarro".

At the end of season 6 we were introduced to one of the best DC villains with Bizarro himself. Like most Smallville portrayals of comic book villains, this is a very different interpretation of Bizarro from the comics, but making the character more menacing and more serious fits the tone of the show better.

Some Smallville premieres focus so much on tying up the loose ends from the previous season, that all ground work for the upcoming season is pushed to the 2nd episode of the season. "Bizarro" had just the right balance. It tied up the season 6 finale, while putting just enough teases out there for what was to come, with Kara's introduction and Lex's desire for redemption. This eased into the rest of the season less awkwardly than some past ones had.

Lex and Clark's characters are given a bit of a shakeup here and in the rest of the season. Clark begins to doubt whether he's taking the right approach to being a hero, and there's more to come, with a lot of doubt placed on whether or not Clark has fully realized his potential. For Lex, after 2 straight seasons of him being a full fledged villain, it was an unexpected change of pace to have him hoping to redeem himself for his actions.

This was a great start to what I see as one of Smallville's most entertaining seasons, while not actually one of the most original.
