Smallville Episode Recap: 8.11 “Legion”

Tom Welling, SmallvillePreviously on Smallville: Chloe and Jimmy’s wedding was interrupted by Doomsday, who put the smackdown on Clark and took Chloe away to the Dark Fortress.  Also, Lana showed up to delay the inevitable pairing of Clark and Lois while Lex was revealed to be alive.

Lightning Lad is fascinated by the cool Superman memorabilia in the barn, but Cosmic Boy just wants to leave because of the code about not disrupting the time/space continuum. Cosmic Boy lets Clark know that he will become an important figure in alien rights.

Chloeiac as she shall now be called taunts Davis’ silly crush on Chloe (Allison Mack) and she eventually lets him know the next step is to lock Davis in a chrysalis for 12 days so he can transform into his destiny, Doomsday….READ FULL RECAP AT BUDDY TV
