Moving closer to Davis Bloome's true identity
24 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The character of Davis Bloome is further explained and explored in this engaging sixth episode of the series. A series of attacks is occurring within Metropolis, and Clark remains on the watch during the night at the Daily Planet to make the necessary rescues, whenever possible. However, he has difficulty keeping up with the attacks and murders, and believes that it may be a result of the meteor "freaks" who have been taking therapy at Chloe Sullivan's Isis Foundation for those who deal with an acquired supernatural power. At the same time, Davis Bloome, the new paramedic in the city, begins to point the finger at himself, but Chloe, whom he increasingly spends time with, refuses to accept that it might be him. Only when Clark has a showdown with both a meteor freak and Bloome himself does he come to a realization of whom he thinks is the murderer. A wonderful episode to establish the need to be wary of not only Bloome but also those who have been taking therapy with Chloe, and also to see how the show's main characters, Clark most importantly, would be diverted from realizing that Bloome, though not responsible for all the murders, has still played a direct role several times. And then, of course, it's chilling to know that Tess Mercer knew of the meteor freaks' murderous doings.
