Do we really need a female Lex Luthor?
14 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Not the greatest episode but it definitely brought a little life to Jimmy's character that I've never seen before. I've never really cared for him or Aaron Ashmore in the role but I was glad to see a Jimmy here that fought back. It added a new dimension to him that I've been wanting to see.

The big annoyance though was that Chloe not only didn't believe the truth about Davis but she went as far as to protect him over Jimmy. Can't really blame the guy for being so upset with her. Although I do think going so far as to say he made a huge mistake marrying her was a little too much. Dealing with Clark and his secrets are one thing but sticking up for someone like Davis, that she barely knows, is entirely different.

I always love whenever they hint at Clark's future as Superman and this episode was no different. One thing about this episode that didn't sit right with me though is Tess. Since her first appearance I've never liked her and more and more she's starting to irritate me. Lex was a great character and Michael Rosenbaum brought so much life to it so naturally writers decide not to think outside the box and instead choose to create a female version of Lex that just doesn't work.

I wasn't surprised that Lois didn't appear in this episode. It seems to be the custom to give viewers just a small appearance of her and Clark and then send her away and act as if it never happened. I'm not looking for an all out love confession at this stage but I'd at least like to see her make an appearance.
