Welcome back Kara
24 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The return of Kara Zor-El is welcome in a very good episode of the eight season. Clark mysteriously re-obtains the Kryptonian crystal that created the Fortress of Solitude nearly four years earlier, having been sent in the mail after Maxima had obtained it in a previous episode. This crystal, however, sends both he and Lois to the Phantom Zone, an unwelcome return for Clark until he finds his cousin Kara there, still alive after being completely taken over by BrainIAC and sent there months earlier. In valiant attempts to free her, the wife of Zod, Faora, escapes and comes to Earth, using Lois' body to find her creation, Davis Bloome. Faora's character and visit helped Davis to further realize that he was designed to be a monster and a killer, and that with correct mindset he is invulnerable to earthly things. Through this he becomes more convinced that Lois really was possessing the soul of someone else, and that the someone else was speaking truth to him about being a creation meant to bring doom to others, on many worlds, but particularly Earth. It's also good to see Kara freed, but to also understand her need to remain connected to the still-alive city of Kandor, from Krypton, a city that has multiple connections to BrainIAC as its conqueror in comic canon. At the same time, Clark is at full understanding that although it would be great to help Kara reclaim Kandor, his calling, as he had told the alien goddess Maxima, is to remain on Earth and inspire hope in others, as he had stated in the previous episode.
