When Lois is trying to convince the religious fanatics to let her and Clark go, the "bible verse" she quotes is actually from Pulp Fiction, part of Jules's "Ezekiel 25:17" monologue. See more »


At the end of the episode, Lois is holding a copy of The Daily Planet with the cover facing away from her. In the next shot it's facing towards her and in the next shot it's facing away again. See more »


Tess Mercer: Alexander, it that's what you want... you have a chance to make that happen.
Alexander: How can I ever trust Clark again? He made my father hate me. He took away everything I ever cared about. And the last time I was up here, I begged him to tell me the truth about himself. But as always, he denied who he really was.
Tess Mercer: Clark is not the bad man, Alexander. Lex is. He used you just like he used me. And you don't deserve what's happened. You don't have to buy into his memories. I will help you.
Alexander: Why? So you can...

Well balanced smart writing, refreshing Lois & Clark arc, rock solid production, dual "Tex" story, stellar acting, ambivalent ending and jaw dislocating cliffhanger
30 October 2010 | by (France) – See all my reviews

A Zod is bugging your mum ? Who you gonna call ? Al Septien and Turi Meyer of course ! They ain't 'fraid of no Zod(s) and the only masters who have the talent to overwrite such a pesky mumbling creature. Indeed even if Callum Blue was convincing as the General in season 9 I still haven't digested half the dialogs he pronounced. Seriously he wasn't back for an encore, like Chloe used to say, but the writers of the excellent Kandor, Conspiracy and Salvation were.

Since Hostage the audience has no doubt about Lois capacity to take care of herself and save the day. She's superb and definitely a role model we can count on. But when your boyfriend is Clark Kent it's not easy to affirm yourself and become who you are. Harvest was about settling things once and for all. Of course a couple is like a living organism and its redefinition is inevitable but sometimes it's wiser to be satisfied of what you have. Like in Escape our two love birds had planned a trip out of Metropolis but it quickly turned into a survival tournament. At the beginning while they were driving I couldn't help noticing the awkward close-ups to hide the fake background. But it was a minor issue considering the production was rock solid and even surprising. Indeed half the scenes occurred outdoor or in brand new sets. Moreover Lois & Clark skills were brilliantly used and their little adventure should make them grow on you even more. Their arc wasn't original nor scary but intense enough and as refreshing as a cold lemonade. And as expected it was filled with irresistible Lois moments. Her usual funny dialogs were used in the most uncommon situations and Erica Durance also managed to hot burn some scenes with her stellar acting. As for Clark what happened to him wasn't a first but definitely the perfect excuse to strike an other episodic home run !

After watching Isis I only had one name on my lips : Tess Mercer. As much as I love Lois & Clark I just couldn't resist her. Cassidy Freeman perfectly portrayed the mother in distress for her beloved child. It's specially disturbing and intriguing considering he's Lex Luthor's clone. In Harvest her role wasn't anecdotic, it was probably as much important as the others. From the acting to the dark ambiance their arc was captivating. I was specially impressed by their dialogs and the way they unveiled the dual nature of Tess. She's almost like a female vampire, mesmerizingly beautiful but so dangerous. However after Isis it's obvious it's not about turning her into an other Lex but develop a new character able to puzzle the viewers and twist the story in the most unpredictable ways. It's exactly what happened in this sixth installment and the performers can only be praised for their acting. The more we see them, the more demanding we become. Captain Freeman and her crew know it, that's why they keep delivering !

Two perfectly balanced arcs but one fascinating universe to bind them all. Six episodes aired, sixteen to go ! After Harvest you'll be certain of one thing, that the best is yet to come. The ambivalent ending could have been better but overall it successfully opened the gate of what should be the main plot of the upcoming episodes, if not of the whole season. In the one hand the last minute featured the brightest moment of the season and in the other a new nemesis rose. I couldn't help being slightly disappointed by the last because my expectations were probably too high. But I'm a dreamer so I still have high hopes that my wish will be granted ! Until then, pick up some bloody popcorn because even if Lois & Clark are no Buffy & Spike the harvest is upon us so you better be ready for it ! Show no mercy !
