Bizarro is the new Clark... but for how long?
1 February 2008 | by Rcwilkinson123See all my reviews

A famous villain- make that two famous villains- from Superman mythology plays a key role in this exciting episode of 'Smallville.' While Clark is frozen in the Fortress of Solitude, his more-bizarre carbon copy from the Phantom Zone has taken over his life- including intimate time with Lana Lang. Lana and "Bizarro" have grown closer together while Clark has been stuck up north. Meanwhile, Bizarro is determined to destroy the "Boy Scout," if he is indeed still alive, and confronts the re-booted Brain Interactive Construct- call it BrainIAC 2.0- in order to find a way to do this. Meanwhile, Jor-El decides that Clark needs to stop the Phantom, and frees him. However, BrainIAC 2.0 has his own agenda to defeat BOTH Clarks.

In the meantime, Grant Gabriel, the clone of Julian Luthor, Lex's long-dead baby brother, decides to break away from the iron grip that Lex has held over him and meet his "father" Lionel. This is a decision that Grant may unfortunately, due to the evilness of Lex, may come to regret.

'Persona' is a fantastic episode that continues a season that Smallville truly hasn't seen before in the form of truly interesting minor story-arcs concluding, only to open up windows to new story arcs. The only regret of this seventh season is that it may end prematurely due to the writers' strike.
