Following last week’s 200th episode of Smallville, fans are chomping at the bit to find out what’s in store for the soon-to-be superhero. In a change of pace, Lois becomes Clark’s newest antagonist as the ancient necklace she found while in Egypt transforms Lois into Isis, complete with superpowers and the thirst for a sacrificial lamb, or this case, sacrificial Kryptonian.
Make no mistake, while the DC universe contains a character by the name of Isis, this is not who Lois will be turning into. The Isis that will be taking over Lois is the Egyptian goddess, who happens to be the goddess of motherhood, magic and fertility. Before anyone makes remarks about Lois and Clark possibly taking the paternal route, remember that Kevin Smith has already debunked that possible occurrence in Mallrats. Smallville has also previously touched upon that issue.
While every episode since the season 10 premiere has been moving things along, this appears to be the first stand-alone episode of the season that doesn’t really do much to progress the overall story arc of the final season. I’m sure that this may disappoint some avid fans, but with Green Arrow back in full costume, Lois with superpowers and Cat Grant returning to prove to everyone that Lois is the Blur, this sounds like it’s going to be terrific episode.
Preview (courtesy of The CW)
Lois (Erica Durance) decides to tell Clark (Tom Welling) she knows he’s The Blur, but she accidentally activates an ancient artifact that transforms her into the Goddess Isis, complete with superpowers of her own. Oliver (Justin Hartley) and Clark reluctantly decide to ask Tess (Cassidy Freeman) for help with Lois. Meanwhile, after Cat Grant (guest star Keri Lynn Pratt) witnesses Lois as Isis using her superpowers, she decides Lois is the Blur and sets out to prove it.
Oliver shows Clark the perks of revealing his secret identity. Breakfast cereal, anyone?
