Storyline

Clark decides that he is ready to start his training at the Fortress of Solitude to become 'Superman'. However, the spirit of Jor-El insists that he return to Metropolis to cut his ties with the people he knows before he begins. Lois reappears in the city with no recollection of vanishing to the future. Her investigation into a monorail crash brings her into contact with a new reporter named John Corben. John is opposed to the "Red and Blue Blur", and has a secret power and identity himself. Meanwhile, Chloe's friendship with Clark deteriorates when he refuses to use the Legion ring to go back in time to save Jimmy. Elsewhere, Oliver turns down a dark path in his quest to rid the world of evil. General Zod makes his entrance at the Luthor mansion before Tess. Written by matt-282

Smallville Is Back And Better
26 September 2009 | by See all my reviews

After last seasons Doomsday season finale jimmy Olson and Davis bloom both departed from the show from sad deaths.Smallville had disappointed most people with a 10 second fight between doomsday and Clark that didn't live up to the hype If you don't know Smallville has moved to Fridays let's hope it's moved back to Thursdays or this show will have rating problems.the season 9 premiere of Smallville will Be my most watched recorded show on my TV. But now Smallville is back and better with the season premiere of Savior which in my opinion is the best premiere compared with season 3's. you even hear different music tone through out the episode. the acting by the cast is Perfect. I would give this episode 4 out of 4 stars for being just plain sweet.
