Chloe romanced by a 12-year-old. They tried to make it cute and innocent but it didn't make it any less creepy.
And if the producers can get Zatanna to be in every episode that would be great.

Smallville #9-13 "Warrior"
Friday, February 12, 2010 @ 8 p.m. ET/7 CT on The CW
Clark (Tom Welling) meets Zatanna (guest star Serinda Swan) at a comic book convention, where she tells him her father charmed a copy of the comic book "Warrior Angel" and it holds magical powers. A young man named Stephen (guest star Carlo Marks) steals the comic book and develops super powers, transforming himself into Warrior Angel and saving Chloe (Allison Mack) from a horrible accident. Meanwhile, Lois (Erica Durance) becomes jealous of Clark's relationship with Zatanna. Allison Mack directed the episode written by Bryan Q. Miller
#9.11-12: "Absolute Justice"
CWTV.com - Smallville
Sirenda Swan = Total Fantasy!
That is all.
Dude, they need to just make Serinda Swan part of the Smallville cast already! Did you see that scene where she was macking on Clark? Awesome Sauce!
Tonight was Serinda's night, with Warrior and Hex being shown on the same night!
In the animated music industry, there are two completely different but important girl groups: The Holograms, who are just Truly Outrageous, and the Misfits, who think their music is better. These are their stories.
Law and Order: Starlight Music. (dong-dong)
Watching this episode, I was just like "Oh, just call the kid Billy Batson and be done with it". I mean, except for the villianous turn at the end, it was very Modern Age Captain Marvel.
Saturday Morning is not just part of the week. It's a state of mind.
Between the comic book and the shoddy effects work, I kept waiting for Flabber to show up and the Big Bag BeetleBorgs theme to start playing.
"But I, being poor, have only my dreams. I have spread my dreams under your feet; tread softly, because you tread on my dreams." - William Butler Yeats
"You can't find the world's perspective in reflection, but you can find yourself."
"We came, we saw, we conquered, we... woke up!"
This was the episode this year I've been looking forward to the most. Obviously, because it's Chloe-centric and I love Alison Mack. When the spoilers first started leaking that Warrior Angel would debut, played by the actor who was Chloe's alternate-reality fiancee a few seasons back, the pieces seemed to easily fall into place. He would be her next love interest - the substitute Superman without the Doomsday personality to ruin things.
Obviously, I was disappointed to find my theory flawed. I like being surprised, but for Chloe to once again end up robbed of a happy ending is infuriating...even though it's having little effect on me. Chloe's been punched in the gut so many times over the years in this series, it's hardly news.
The issue was, I liked Steven. The actor did an excellent job of playing the kid-turned-adult, and he brought a real sense of happiness into Chloe's life. I really would have preferred a longer flight sequence over the city, though...but it's perhaps best that they kept the romance brief, given how it was all going to end.
Funny that this entire episode centered around the Warrior Angel concept and yet no one mentioned Lex. Wasn't he the biggest WA fan?
Zatanna being back was fun, if a bit forced. Her father placing that kind of curse on a comic is beyond silly. "Hey - I'll give someone powers and then they'll become evil...and if they happen to be a child, they'll grow up real fast too! That'll show them!" I love how even DC characters who don't appear on Smallville are still written badly.
Chloe turning to Oliver felt natural, but the pairing doesn't work for me. I could almost believe Chloe being bitter about Lois flaunting her relationship in her face, and then hooking up with a willing Oliver out of spite (it's a believable thing, even for Chloe). But then, I still don't see why Jenry had to die and why Good Davis and Chloe aren't making a go of a relationship this season. Boy are these writers annoying.
Plus, didn't Oliver KILL LEX last year, and then threaten Chloe with the fact that she killed someone while under Brainiac's control to keep her from telling? Did everyone just forget about that? I didn't.
Still can't understand half of what these characters are talking about. I got that the theme was "Fantasy can be fun", but the Clark/Zatanna conversation just sounded super wierd. Were they disagreeing? Arguing? Flirting? Couldn't make heads or tails of it.
I will say this though - Serinda Swan was charming again as Zatanna, A-Mack did a good job directing the show, Swift was charming too, Clark actually sounded like himself and smiled during the barn scene with the kid, the Comic Con was fun, I liked the jokes about Lois' outfits (seriously, girl is ho) and generally thought this was the most likeable episode of the season.
-Kid loses powers in Metropolis...then ends up in Clark's barn, two hours away? Hun? And THEN goes back to his family...who are at the Daily Planet instead of a police station? HUN?
-When did Zatanna actually get the low-down on Clark being the Blur last year? Far as I recall, she didn't, even though he did use some powers in front of her. Would have been nice to hear a line from her explaining how Ollie and Chloe filled her in (has Chloe been in touch with her because of Watchtower??)
-How did the kid find out Clark was the blur either? That was never explained, and his illustration was waaaay too on-the-point.
-How does the comic give him two costumes? And why even bother with the second costume if it would only be seen in 2 minutes of the show? (Again, a potentially neat guest character like the Dark Archer plays less-than-second fiddle and barely appears in the story).
-What was Chloe doing at the Comic Con in the first place? What did Lois mean by Chloe "being in her element"? Why would Chloe suddenly insist that Stephen tell her all about his powers and such while they're in the apartment? What's the rush?
Best line (from the least expected source): "I get to pick your costume."
Though I did like the "no sonic boom?" bit. And also, the magic effects at the start, when he transformed.
I want to slap Lois. Over and over and over. Who says their own name that often?

I liked the episode but I kept on getting the feeling that I was watching a watered-down version of Captain Marvel. Did anyone else get that vibe?
In an interview months ago, the producers stated that this episode would involve a DC hero but they didn't get the name rights cleared. Obviously it worked out for the better. Marvel didn't go evil, I don't think.
Most recently he did. In a retooling of the Shazam! mythos by Geoff Johns and Jerry Ordway. It didn't last long though.
I would like to fully the support the sentiment that Zatanna appear more often. Make it happen, Smallville people.
Once again, after being accused of hating "filler" due to my intense dislike of "Rabid" I enjoyed this episode and thought it was fun. I wouldn't say it ranks among the greatest episode of all-time, but I enjoyed watching it.
First, Zatanna is great. I enjoy Serinda Swan in the role and as I already said, am in favor of seeing her more often.
The whole thing with Alec/Stephen was kind of interesting and I kind of liked the story in a "Big" sort of way with Stephen not being as mature as Chloe would have expected. The whole Warrior Angel curse thing was a bit odd, but overall, I like the story we got from it.
I also echo the previous statements that Zatanna needs to show up again. I feel that Serinda Swan has done a truly outstanding job with the character and I would love to see her again - but please, don't have her come on to Clark anymore. That was the only thing about this episode I didn't completely enjoy because it made Zatanna seem a little promiscuous, and I'm not too comfortable with the idea of a superhero trying to get another superhero to cheat on his girlfriend (especially under magical duress).
As for the rest of the episode...wow. This was a fun, lighthearted romp in the Smallville world that we haven't had for a VERY long time, and it was a huge breath of fresh air from the relative darkness this show has been in for several years now. It reminded me of a season 1 or 2 episode where things were so much simpler and had such a lighter atmosphere. And bringing in the childlike innocence of Captain Marvel (ok fine, a Warrior Angel fan) just enhanced the lighter tone. I loved the Devilicus twist at the end too - it works off of the show's own continuity and references Superman's really early days where he was a villain in his first appearance.
I'm dissapointed. Not a single destrucity joke?
Hun? to Beat's comment/question.
And hun? to this as well.it works off of the show's own continuity and references Superman's really early days where he was a villain in his first appearance.
Yes to the comments about Zatanna trying to get Clark to cheat on Lois. Found this strange, especially since they didn't flirt in her first episode. And also, because it's not polite to casually force someone to make out with you when they don't wanna. Got a Lois/Aquaman "what are the writers thinking with this pairing?" vibe.
