SV meme day 3!  
It's Day 3 of the Smallville meme!

Day 03- Favorite Episode

Just one? Oh man, but there are so many that I love. Plus, I haven't even seen s9 so I'm missing 22 episodes. But that's probably a good thing. I don't need any more choices! All right, I got one. Not sure if it's the best out there but I loved it!



It's 8.07 "Identity"! I really loved that episode. I was thinking of "Justice" but this was more Clark-centric. It had everything that I could ask for- sneaky, reporter!Lois, Ollie getting back on the right track, awesome!Jimmy and of course, a perfect Clark!

I loved how Jimmy realized Clark was the Blur and how he was so supportive. He was even a great friend of Clark at the end. THIS is the Jimmy that I wanted to see more of, not the drugged up one who was stuck in love triangle after love triangle, which never felt very realistic for his character.

Lois fooled us all with Sebastian. I was so excited when I found out that she knew all along who he was and was not interested in him romantically. I laughed when she talked about the fortune teller. Smallville is not at all subtle, but I love them anyway. And the zip-up scene with her and Clark? *sighs happily* The last scene with the two of them, when she's all determined to get the story was also priceless.

Also, Ollie was himself again (at least temporarily) and I had hope. When he was all "who I really am is Green Arrow", I was happy. Plus, Clark and his phone conversation was so funny. They had some good moments in this episode. Oh, my OTP! How I adore you both!

Last but not least, Clark. I loved how he realized that people were not afraid of someone with powers (as he watched everyone in awe of who they thought was the Blur). The expression on his face was very telling; it was like he was opening his eyes to new possibilities. &hearts

Overall, a very made of win episode!

I really loved Jimmy in this episode! It was a rare thing when I got around to appreciating him on Smallville (I definitely prefer the comics version), but they definitely gave him some awesome there. I think he was a better character when he wasn't all about Chloe.

I totally agree. When they wrote Jimmy right, he was good, but most of the time, they didn't do that. Chloe and Jimmy had their cute moments, but overall, they were better off as individual characters than together. Somehow, they brought out the worst in one another. I liked Jimmy in this episode, because he was doing what he should be ... being a sidekick and a good friend to Clark. :)

Yup, it was definitely one of the best episodes in s8.

I just love that moment where Clark saw for himself that Metropolis wouldn't be afraid of him, but would welcome him instead.
Me too! You can tell in his face when Ollie is standing on the rooftop. :D

I loved Jimmy in this episode! Sadly, he wasn' t destined to be around much longer.

What I loved most was after a lifetime of people reacting with fear or uncertainty or immediately wanting to tell Clark how to use his powers, Jimmy was supportive and would always have his back. He was a bit in awe of Clark, but that and the support fits with Classic Jimmy in the comics. :)

How cool would it been to have Clark supported by a friend who had no agenda and simply wanted to help him?

Yes! Jimmy's supportive nature for Clark was so refreshing! :)

It is sad. I wish they hadn't wasted so much time with triangles and that stupid drug addiction arc.

I agree! Even in 'Doomsday', when he found out that Clark was the Blur after all, he didn't get upset, he was just really supportive.

It would've been so nice! He's yet to have a friend like that, and it's sad that they took away Jimmy so soon. :(

Mine would probably be Justice.
But, hey, I watch only the epioseds with Ollie and didn't watch Smallville since S08

I like Justice, but it was too focused on people who weren't Clark. Plus, Ollie and Clark have (for the most part) better scenes in 'Identity.

Do you mean that you haven't watched SV s8 or you haven't watched anything since season 8? Because this episode was in season 8. It was the 7th one to be exact, and Ollie was in it8

I didn't watch anything since season 8. I only watched the first episode of the season with Ollie speaking in Russian. but I already felt like Ollie wasn't the Oliie I liked so I couldn't watch the episodes. Perhaps that I'll be able to watch them later^^

Ooh, so you haven't seen the majority of s8. Got it. Sorry, I was confused.

Really? In 'Odyssey'? I don't think anything changed about him in that episode. I mean, he was his usual heroic self, insisting that they could save Clark, even when the rest of the team had doubts. The only time he was off was in the lab, but he was being mind controlled then and it was only for a couple of minutes. It was no worse than when he was on drugs in 'Rage'. In fact, it was a lot better.

Yeah! I'm a little behind xD

I really dislike that episode and think it was kind of ridiculous. All the Justice League being trapped? All of them? Not credible.
And really Ollie "killing" Clark in the end....
I don't know... It was just too much for me...

That's okay. I'm kinda behind, but I plan to catch up before s10 starts, since it's the last.

Actually, it is. Chloe accidentally gave away their location and identities. There was only two of them that were caught. AC is weak when he's not in water, which makes sense, and Dinah only has her scream to protect herself. It's not like they're Wonder Woman or Superman, both who would be harder to trap.

And really Ollie "killing" Clark in the end....
I don't know... It was just too much for me...

Again, he was under a mind control and he basically broke down when he saw what he did. I mean, in the season finale, he shot Clark on purpose. At least this one was an accident. Besides, it's not like he was perfect in s6. He shot Lex in 'Rage' too and Lex would've died then if Clark hadn't shown up and brought him back.

I just loved that episode so much! I don't think there's anything I can add, lol. I loved Clark realizing that he wouldn't be afraid by Metropolis, but welcomed. Loved Jimmy, loved Oliver, and especially loved Lois, and her determination to find out who The Red Blue Blur was. :)
Everyone was really awesome in this episode. They were all doing what they were supposed it and it was great.

Also, this:

Clark: You didn't hear me complain when I had to put on green leather to protect your identity.
Oliver: Clark, you made out with my girlfriend, man. What did you have to complain about?

That conversation was WIN! It made me laugh a lot. I was going "aww" when Clark told Ollie his parents would be proud of him at the end. Of course, the cape jokes are always entertaining. :D

I totally agree! They managed to make it nice and light, but still, it had a point (Clark realizing that people wouldn't be afraid of him). Always a good combination! :)

Jimmy!! *goes and sobs uncontrollably*
I know. I miss him too. *hugs*
