That was interesting, seeing the Silver Banshee show up in here. Kinda strange ep though.

This was a great episode.

I thought the slow motion was a little over used at the start, but i loved the freeze fame thing they did when Clark was rescuing Chloe.

I'll second that, the freeze frame sequence was excellent!

Does anyone have an idea who or what the red chesspiece at the end represents? It doesn't ring a bell for me.

No idea. All it means is that there's a new player in the game, IMO. For all we know it means Lex is back.

Did Geoff write this episode? The use of Checkmate was very consistent with how he wrote them when they debuted.

It is somebody whom John Jones is working with.

Maxwell Lord might be an option but the Martha one would be a big surprise.
I was hoping it had connections to Gotham.

Also Waller's reaction made it seem like another government group.

There's never been any reference towards a goverment agency or character which uses red chesspieces in comics as far as I know, so it could be something completely new for Smallville.
The first thing that came to my mind was that is was Jo'nn (red = mars).
But like Billy Batson said, he addmited working for someone, so it's probably not him.

Was the chesspiece the queen? I can't remember. If so, it's probably a woman.

Maxwell Lord is a good guess IMO. We know he's going to make an appearance in upcoming episodes, but woudln't he use a red King?
I'm not so sure about Martha, but who knows. It would be a good plot twist.

How come no new talk on the last episode and the identity of the Red Queen?

I just watched all the episodes in order on Tevo starting with the JSA one. Wow are these good! Im back into Smallville.
 
Thank you Jack Cole....

Watched this as well. I'm actually glad to see "The Blur" break it off with Lois. Maybe now the writers will quit portraying her as an annoying ditz and show why she'll be the Planet's top reporter.

I'm hoping next week we see Clark finally flying. I think that's hinted in the previews for the next show.

Didn't he fly in Friday's episode? When he was behind the tarp talking to Lois, didn't he shoot up and fly away?

Nah he leaped, although it did look like he flew for a second.

Wow...I really thought he flew. I missed a few episodes from last season so I wasn't sure if he finally realized he could fly.

Smallville is generally hit or miss. This one was more miss than hit, which happens. I am looking forward to the Bruce Wayne cameo at the end of the season.
