5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best episodes of the season!!, April 8, 2009
This review is from: Smallville: The Complete Eighth Season (Amazon Instant Video)
Well we all can agree that Season 8 has turned out to be a pretty solid year for Smallville with some great episodes ("Identity", "Bride", "Legion", "Infamous" to name a few!) But "Prey" is definately up there with my favorites. It's such an underrated episode! First, Clark makes his debut as the Red-Blue Blur! The sequence of Clark sueprspeeding around Metropolis saving various people, even leaping a tall building in a single bound was truly epic. It was great to see Clark so determined to save lives which is a clear indication that the Man of Steel is about to arrive soon. Then, there was John Jones aka Martain Manhunter who returns as Metropolis' newest detective. It's a great new role for John Jones and obviously inspired by his comic book counterpart. Phil Morris is just excellent throughtout as John as always, especially the speech he gives to Clark about his identity at the end. Then you have Sam Witer as Davis Bloome aka Doomsday giving a terrific performance. Sam, for the first time, made you care about Davis and feel sorry for him. It's a great contrast to how powerful and vicious Doomsday really is. Lastly, there are some unpredictable twists, which Smallville rarely does anymore. We also get some more foreshadowing of Tess' villainous group of meteor freaks aka the Injustice League (who will soon appear in "Injustice", episode 21 of this season!) This episode was an intelligent, darker, maturer brand of Smallville...like the majority of this season has been. The storyines so far this season have been pretty amazing (Chloiac, the Red-Blue Blur and Doomsday) with only one really being lackluster (Lana...of course!) When I look back on Season 8, "Prey" will be one of the highlights for me!
