In last night's episode of Smallville, Clark discovers his super-breath after his efforts to repair damage caused by Zod bring on cold-like symptoms. This leads to another excellent comedic opportunity for Chloe to help Clark harness his power. Why is Clark not dating her again?
Meanwhile a barn door accidentally blown by Clark almost falls on Lois, somehow unleashing heretofore unseen reporter's instincts. She walks into the offices of Daily Planet rival The Metropolis Inquisitor and is allowed to write an article that makes the front page. Only in TV Land.
The episode climaxed with Clark surreptitiously saving Lana and Lex by blowing out a warehouse fire. Just like the old days.
