Storyline

Chloe and Lois are attacked by two thugs which one of them is hit by Lois with her heel, she starts feeling a bit heroine about it so she recruits Jimmy for the picture so she can convince the people she is Metropolis' new hero, with the name of 'Stiletto', so she can take away the famous red and blue blur. However, Lois may end having contact with this red and blue blur when Clark wants to try to track down the mysterious 'Stiletto'. While Clark tries to help Chloe recover her stolen laptop computer with all of the Justice League's files on it, she continues to hide Davis in the basement of The Talon. Elsewhere, Jimmy is working as a bartender at a nightclub where the thugs who robbed Chloe and Lois reside and are plotting to kill Stiletto to reclaim the city for themselves. Written by lneira1

Trivia

The portmanteau 'Blur-etto' - used in the episode by members on the superhero appreciation website discussing the pairing of the Red-Blue Blur and Stiletto - is a joking reference to combined character names by fans as shorthand for specific relationships. See more »

Lois Lane: [in British accent] Lois? Who's Lois? I'm Stiletto. I should get back to my cave.

The Lane, the Kent and the Red-Blue Blur followed by Little Red Riding Chloe
27 April 2009 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Even if this season has already plenty of great episodes the writers keep surprising us. Again this one was mostly about the whole new Lois and Clark arc but the Doomsday one was also covered. Finding out who Stiletto was even surprised me because I hadn't read anything about it before watching the episode.

In Bride, Erica Durance's emotive performance astonished me and in this one she confirmed that impression. In fact I had to admit that when she was first introduced as Lois Lane I wasn't really into her but now I even compare her to Teri Hatcher. Indeed even they often use her sex appeal to appeal the male audience the character remains genuine, funny, clumsy… Considering how human she's I'm pretty sure many girls identify to her, and that's a great thing because she kicks ass. An other great thing was Clark's development because he keeps getting closer and closer to the whole Superman icon. The time when Tom Welling's acting bored me is also long time gone and now I keep waiting for the weekly Dailyplanet scene where we see Clark and Lois teasing each other. You can't get tired of it, it's pure cosmic love. This time it was even better than usual considering what he did and what happened thereafter.

That was for the bright part because the creature is now lurking in Chloe's lair. She's my favorite character but I have to admit that Allison Mack's previous performances weren't as strong as they should have been. For example I remember a scene when she was supposed to be really sad but only looked like an actress faking the emotion. In this episode she got darker and darker but it felt real. So it's great and very inspiring to see that hard work pays off. She keeps growing on us but also on Allison apparently. In fact now she's almost a tale character and could be featured in Charles Perrault or Lewis Caroll's works. But this time Jimmy also joined the party and in some way it seems the marriage isn't over yet because their characters mirror themselves. It's quite smart from the writers because it makes Chloe and Jimmy even more genuine. If you already liked them you'll care even more for them after watching this episode.

Last but not least, like if it wasn't already enough, all these elements were brilliantly edited together. Of course there were two distinctive story arcs but it felt like they were about to collide, for an ultimate episode. It's even more exciting considering three episodes remain. The last scene will also probably be remembered as one of the best Smallville one, right beside the scenes from episodes like Identity or Bride.
