Super Dark Geekentity XIV : Season 10 entertaining Big Badda Boom
19 February 2011 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Two years have passed since Identity, season 8 episode 7, paved the way for Clark's recurring crisis. Should he come out from the shadow in respect of John Corben (Metallo) ? With Martha saying the sweetest thing to his son in Beacon, that he was the light, Masquerade was the most logical development. The first element that stroke me was the direction. All along it felt like déjà vu and once I was done with the episode I had to know who was behind it. Tim Scanlan ? Checkmate's puppet apprentice ! Remember his creative but inconsistent work ? Well he was back and it seems he has learned a few things since season 9. Indeed the story was filled with refreshing and well executed ideas. From the elegant reference to Dark City to the smooth transitions between some scenes it was obvious Scanlan and his team had fun so in the end it made the episode far much more entertaining than usual. In fact I'm surprised how the overall vibe was different than past installments. There were also so many cool sequences that I don't know where to start. Oliver doing his Green Arrow in bright daylight ? Checked, and I'm sure Prince of Persia fans enjoyed it too. White Chloe bugging red Chloe in distress ? Checked. In fact the whole hallucination part was good and the visual effects flawless. Clark's new ability ? Micro vision checked. I didn't even know Superman was capable of such a thing ! Smallville special ? I don't know but it was definitely impressive ! The Blur suiting up as Green Arrow in Red & Blue was also quite funny. Still it wouldn't have been over the top to make it hilarious by adding some cheesy soundtrack and begging Erica Durance to do her crazy magic like in Persuasion for example. Damn she was sexy in her cute little white top. Last but not least beside the exciting dark arc I was also quite pleased by the way Clark decided to finally wear his glasses. How smart to use Lois to convince him but still let him make up his own mind about it. I can't wait for other geeky moments because the one at the end was priceless. Go! Go! Clarky only 8 episodes remain before your inevitable take off.
