Sebastian Kane: How do you know me?
Chloe Sullivan: I was in that facility with you. I know all about your ability to read people like Braille. Now, tell me. That man who stopped you the other night; how much of his story did you get through?

Wonderful episode to establish further the purposes of Clark
24 August 2010 | by Rcwilkinson123See all my reviews

The seventh episode of this season brought a major Superman feel to a great season thus far. When Jimmy Olsen takes a picture that captures the "red-blue blur" in action, he begins to increasingly realize that Clark fills the description, though Lois still doesn't know. It's for this reason that Clark reaches out to Oliver Queen, the partying Oliver Queen who tries to shirk from his Green Arrow calling a bit, to help him protect his identity. The way in which Green Arrow is portrayed in protecting Clark's identity is thrilling. A great way to help the audience see how Clark is realizing how he must dress and act in Metropolis in order to keep his heroism acts continuing. There was also wonderful connections to past seasons in this episode, tying in great continuity to the earlier seasons of this series when Clark was still with his mortal parents, not really knowing yet who he was or what his calling would be. Perhaps the only personal disappointment in the episode was Chloe being written to do something that is completely out of her character. It ended an otherwise fun episode on a low note.
