Refreshing but screamy fantasy story, hilarious and insightful character development, burning Tess and Zod mind game, intriguing cliffhanger
4 April 2010 | by See all my reviews

After the jaw dropping Conspiracy and a cold winter break I was expecting Smallville to cool off and provide us with a refreshing and springful episode. It's exactly what Escape was and even if its fantasy story was ridiculous at times it was still good entertainment. Indeed with so many empathic characters and talented performers you can't disappoint the audience. First even if the story reached some over the top moments it reminded of the Ghostbusters II and all these scary films for teenagers. However it failed to spook me and most of the time I was laughing out loud because of the surreal situations the characters got themselves into. But don't get me wrong some jokes were hilarious and as I was in a good mood I didn't mind the rest. Moreover between two screams the writers managed to develop relationships like Lois & Clark and Oliver & Chloe. Tess and Zod continued their dangerous game and even if I don't like where it's heading it could lead to some intense and captivating arcs. Last but not least I found their dialogs about power, information and The Blur quite interesting because these poker players have different hands and it's hard to know who's going to win the game. It's even more intriguing considering how the episode ended, with an original and unexpected scene.
