Smallville: Season 9, Episode 12 'Warrior' Review

Loved the outfit Lois, that was the only bit of 'Warrior' shown here though.
Why is everyone kissing Lois and Clark, except Lois and Clark! If you understand what I meant there, it was just painful having Zatanna's magic fingers all over Clark, couldn't Clark pull away before their lips touched, or even before she climbed on top of him! I wasn't even pleased with Lois' retaliation kiss, it didn't matter the other guy wasn't even hot enough for it to mean anything, and it only proved that she kissed him out of revenge, to appease her insecure conscience.

I am actually disappointed here. Ever since the writers placed Lois and Clark together, things kind of got mellow between them. Lois became more forgiving and Clark became more distant. It is really starting to get me very upset that there hasn't been a decent kiss between Lois and Clark in weeks!

The only possible advancement would be Chloe finally having her first crush since Jimmy and that very suggestive scene between her and Oliver in the end. Did Chloe really not know how to shoot that bow? As for Oliver, he was actually placed in odd scenes; like passing by the Daily Planet to see Lois and bounce into Clark afterward. Then we have the writers playing with the chemistry everyone wants to see happen between Chloe and Oliver.

Other than those plots, the other scenes with Zatanna and the boy wasn't really worth fulfilling an entire episode. Did Zatanna really need Clark's ex-ray vision to find the book? It just seemed too easy and predictable a storyline, especially the scenes with the boy-turned-superhero-turned-villain-turned-boy again. I was actually disappointed with the limited difficulty expressed here.

The writers need to work on tying up some loose ends and try having the absent stories like Zod, Tess and Amanda Waller, dealt with on a smoother scale. Zod made a huge suggestion about his plan and the towers, and Waller and Tess had this huge conversation to have - what happened to those? These should be acknowledged soon enough and I am probably still upset that there weren't really enough Clois scenes to take my mind off the other stuff. It just felt as though it missed something, and I didn't appreciate how friendly Clark was with Zatanna in the end and how clumsy they made Lois with the phone cord, as if she needed to be. Zatanna had to use her powers to get Clark to kiss her, Lois just needed to give him a look, or through another box his way.
