The League, The Martian, and the Red Kryptonite

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of Smallville, and especially of the next couple of episodes:

Justice
The Green Arrow (Justin Hartley) sends out for reinforcements and Bart Allen, a.k.a. The Flash (guest star Kyle Gallner), Aquaman (guest star Alan Ritchson) and Cyborg (guest star Lee Thompson Young) return to Smallville to help him take down LuthorCorp’s secret lab. During a break-in at the LuthorCorp facility, Bart is captured and tortured by Lex (Michael Rosenbaum) and Clark (Tom Welling) sets off to rescue him but is felled by kryptonite. An alarmed Chloe (Allison Mack) goes to Oliver for help, and the newly formed “justice league” springs into action to rescue Clark and Bart.

Labyrinth
Clark (Tom Welling) is attacked and wakes up in a mental asylum where the attending physician, Dr. Hudson, tells him he has been there for five years due to his elaborate fantasy that he has alien superpowers. In this new world, Martha (Annette O’Toole) is married to Lionel Luthor (John Glover), Chloe (Allison Mack) is deemed insane and Lana (Kristin Kreuk) chose Clark over Lex (Michael Rosenbaum). Lana begs Clark to agree to Dr. Hudson’s treatments so they can be together, but when a fellow patient named John, A.K.A Martian Manhunter (guest star Phil Morris), tells him the good doctor is actually a phantom and he needs to kill him in order to return to reality, Clark must make the toughest decision of his life.

Crimson
After Lois (Erica Durance) tries on lipstick made with red kryptonite, she becomes overwhelmed with desire for Clark (Tom Welling) and makes her move. The two share a kiss, transferring the red kryptonite to Clark and his inhibitions immediately shut down causing “bad Clark” to emerge. Fueled by the red rock, Clark decides to break up Lex (Michael Rosenbaum) and Lana’s (Kristin Kreuk) wedding dinner and kidnap the bride-to-be.

This season has been a blast, with Zod, the oh-so-wrong-but-oh-so-good Lex/Lana relationship, the escapees from the Phantom Zone kicking the crap out of Clark (who normally kicks the crap out of everyone), the Green Arrow, Lex turning more and more evil … And, if you’re interested, a 12 minute preview clip of Justice is on Yahoo TV.
