Dearly beloved, we are gathered here on Smallville to witness the union of James Bartholomew Olsen and Chloe Sullivan.  If there is anyone here who objects to this marriage, speak now, or forever...HOLY CRAP, there's a giant alien creature destroying the wedding!

That's right, tonight's episode of Smallville brings the wedding of Chloe and Jimmy, the return of Lana Lang, and the arrival of a gigantic alien destroyer called Doomsday.  Short of Oliver Queen being the stripper at Chloe's bachelorette party, what more could you want from an episode of Smallville?

takes a page out of Cloverfield, and the episode opens with home video footage of the wedding of Jimmy and Chloe. There are plenty of cuts and very grainy video footage, but even more depressing is the fact that the wedding is taking place in Clark's barn. The nuptials go off without a hitch, and there's a big kiss and cake, and everything's fine until...THUMP! THUMP! THUMP!

If you've seen Cloverfield, you know what happens next. There's a loud, scary noise outside, the electricity goes out, people freak out and run, trampling over one another while screaming "WHAT IS THAT?!" We see Chloe (Allison Mack) cradling an injured Jimmy (Aaron Ashmore) as a monstrous thing shows up.

Frustrating me, the episode actually begins eight hours earlier. Lois (Erica Durance) has taken over the wedding planner duties and is running the day with an iron fist, trying to turn the barn into a suitable place for a wedding. She should've started eight days ago, not eight hours.

Jimmy takes some time off from rehearsing his vows to tell Lois that Clark likes her. He ducks in to see his bride-to-be, followed by the annoying videographer. The two lovebirds fall even more in love, but that's ruined when Chloe gets a voicemail message from Davis (Sam Witwer), making her question in her mind whether she wants a boy or a man.

Oliver (Justin Hartley) arrives to let Clark (Tom Welling) know that Lex is alive, and that he can track him, but he needs Clark's help. Clark refuses to help on Chloe's special day, even though Lex is a huge threat. Still, Oliver guilts him into helping, but Clark still provides some warnings about going after Lex as vengeance for his parents. Clark doesn't give him the stolen router, but one of Oliver's cronies used wifi to download the info.
