I know I’ve experienced zombie days before, when the mind is just in a zone of numbness, and all you want to do is stare blankly at things while going “Nyaaargh.” Lucky for the people around me, I don’t exactly crave flesh and brains at those times. But Clark and Co. aren’t so lucky.
On Smallville tonight, the whole of Metropolis gets zombiefied, and it’s not the tame kind. It’s, as the title says so right there, “Rabid.”
Zod (Callum Blue) is turning more evil by the second, as he and his soldiers decide to release a virus into the air, transforming humans into zombies. Okay, I’m hoping this doesn’t also transform Smallville‘s usually unique plot into some lame shot of a cheap horror flick.
Anyway, the solution to the problem lies once again with Clark (Tom Welling). An antidote has to be made from the blood of another Kryptonian, but this means risking his identity to Zod. The stakes are even higher when it’s darling Lois (Erica Durance) who gets infected. Well, she’s not the only one.
Chloe (Allison Mack) pleads Clark to donate his own blood to save Lois and stop the epidemic entirely. Unfortunately, he can’t help but hesitate knowing how this would lead to Zod finding out about his existence.
“Rabid” was directed by Michael Rohl and was written by Jordan Hawley, and as I’ve seen on the preview clip here, this episode will certainly cause some sparks between Clark and Lois. So maybe being bitten by a zombie isn’t that bad in the end?
Also, word has it that Cameron Bancroft of 24 and Beverly Hills, 90210 fame will be guest-starring in this episode. He’ll be playing a character named Dr. Coats (not much thought into that last name) who’s working on the zombie plague.
Don’t miss Smallville‘s new episode “Rabid” tonight at 8pm on the CW, or else have your brain eaten by the undead. Fine, I didn’t mean that last bit.
