Smallville 8.8 “Bloodlines” Lowdown

Smallville 8.8 “Bloodlines”

Clark receives an anonymous package containing the crystal that Tess (Cassidy Freeman) found in the Arctic.  When he removes the crystal, it activates and sends him and a visiting Lois (Erica Durance) to the Phantom Zone where they run into Kara (guest star Laura Vandervoort).  Kara opens a portal for Lois to return but Zod’s wife Faora escapes with her and takes over Lois’ body.  A possessed Lois goes on a rampage in Metropolis.  Allison Mack, Aaron Ashmore and Justin Hartley also star.  Michael Rohl directed the episode written by Caroline Dries.

Not a terrible episode, but not a great one.
