This episode proves that Jimmy-centric episodes are rather weak. Along with 'Noir,' the Smallville powers-that-be are now 0/2 in the Jimmy-centric episodes department.
First of all, there are plenty of plot-holes. Story-wise, Clark isn't looking for BrainIAC or trying to stop Lex from getting to Zurich. Insteead, he's wasting all his time in the hospital sitting by Lana. There are three things going on in his life, and he decides to tend to by far the least important matter. Stupid pining over Lana. Truly disgusting. I can see why the government would believe Chloe to be a terrorist with evil plans, but the storyline was poorly executed. No more episodes mostly starring Aaron Ashmore! Jimmy as James Bond was only ever-so-slightly cool, because of a couple cool gadgets. But nothing worth dedicating an episode about.
The only thing that saved this was the more-important subplot involving Clark's hearing Kara's transmission from the Fortress, and a message from Virgil Swann's diary from 1989. The temporary sub-plot was no good. A '7' rating is generous.
