Smallville - Sacrifice - Season 9 Episode 19 - CW
This was a great episode. It was all about Zod, but . . at least the story is moving along and we should be getting pretty close to wrapping this thing up. I kind of got the 'it's always darkest before the light' kind of feeling this episode. We start out with Tess invading Watchtower because she wants to delete the files Chloe has on the Kandorians. But, it's not necessarily because she's in league with Zod. Actually, Waller and Checkmate are closing in on Watchtower, and Tess is just trying to keep them, and Clark, safe. At least that's what I think. Anyways, in the process Tess and Chloe get trapped inside of Watchtower when the security measures are breached. Tess has a tracking device that was put inside of her by Checkmate, but Chloe can't remove it because it's designed to burrow in deeper if it's presence is threatened. It's called a parasite tracker. Anyways, They have to figure out a way to get out, because Checkmate is closing in on them. And once they do that, Chloe has to figure out how to remove the device. Anyways, while this is going on, we find that when Zod gave some of the Kandorians their powers, he alienated the rest. They felt like they were left behind. And one of them, 'the future of the Kryptonian race', has been impregnated by Zod. Long story short, Clark tries to help them, but when Zod finds out he thinks that they are betraying him. So he kills the girl before he realizes that she's pregnant with his child. And of course he uses he death to unite the rest of the Kandorians when he blames her death on the humans. But before that, in his grief, he went out and destroyed Castle, and a few other Checkmate bases. I hate to say it, but I can see the writing on the wall already. The only way that Clark's going to be able to save the Earth, and his fellow Kryptonians is to put them all in the Phantom Zone. I don't know why he hasn't thought of this already, but . . that's really the only option he's going to have left. That, or turn the sun red so that they all lose their powers. But then . . so would he. Which would put them all at the mercy of Checkmate. In the process of all this, Ollie gets seriously hurt by Zod. Which moves Chloe's attention to him, in the hospital. And after removing the tracker, Tess is on the run from . . well, pretty much everybody. The only thing missing from this episode was Lois. She was nowhere to be found. We even see the Fortress as that's where Zod gathers his followers. There's only 1 episode left until the season finale. I think it's going to be a doozy.
