Quotes

Clark Kent: I saw what you did to Lionel. You don't want to save anyone.
Zor-El: The weak must be sacrificed for the greater good. Something your father could never understand. He could have saved Krypton if he wasn't such a feeble-minded pacifist.
Clark Kent: Jor-El did the best that he could.
Zor-El: Yes. And where is he now? What is he now? A voice. I'm here, in the flesh. Ready to serve my people.

Clark's Kryptonian mother, Lara, and Kara's Kryptonian father, Zor-El, were both introduced a few episodes earlier. Now in "Blue" they carry what is arguably the biggest episode of season 7 up until this point.

In many Superman adaptations, Kryptonians are portrayed as being perfect moral beings, with Zod being the only exception. Smallville has always made things unpredictable, with even Jor-El's motives and actions sometimes being questioned. Previous episodes established an interesting past feud between brothers Jor-El and Zor-El, and only 2 episodes earlier Zor-El was outed as a mad and villainous character. In "Blue" we have the introduction of Blue Kryptonite, which we learn here can completely strip Clark of his powers. The writing is more clever than your average episode, with most of the twists coming as a result of careless mistakes on the heroes part. Zor-El finds Clark and Lara by deceiving his daughter Kara into giving them up. Clark loses his powers by being given a family ring by his mother.

The strongest element of this episode is the acting. While one can always expect great performances from recurring special guest stars, like Christopher Reeve as Dr. Swann, James Marsters as Brainiac, or Helen Slater here as Lara, it was surprising to have such a dynamite performance Christopher Heyerdahl as Zor-El, considering he's more or less an unknown with a less than outstanding resume. It's only too bad that he only made the two appearances as Zor-El.

The side plot involving Lois and Grant Gabriel became distracting at times. Although it is necessary for Smallville to occasionally feature a non relevant side plot to move stories along for the season, I wish they'd keep it out of larger scale episodes like this. Still it's only a minor annoyance in an otherwise epic episode.
