Technically this season shouldn't have worked; the show's main villain and arguably most popular character, Lex Luthor (Michael Rosenbaum) has now departed; secondly they were introducing a villain which was virtually impossible to bring to the big screen never mind a television series in Doomsday. However whilst a massive void had been created by Rosenbaum's departure, it was filled suprisingly very well by the main cast of heroes who finally come into their own this season with performances and stories which intelligently test those who have big destinies to embrace in the Superman era to come.
Tom Welling finally begins to take his final steps to becoming Superman and is starting to demonstrate how capapble as lead he is while bringing a new found presence to Clark Kent. There is also an increased number of on-screen scenes between Welling and Erica Durance's Lois Lane and the result is a relationship which is as funny as it is touching and believable. Likewise other support characters like Chloe and Jimmy are tested by the new villain in town, Sam Witwer's Davis Bloome who is a great unique character to the series who undergoes a menacing and horrific transformation as the season unfolds. There is also a welcome return from Justin Hartley's Oliver Queen who now becomes a series regular after a successful stint in the sixth season and a brief cameo in the seventh. Queen's character is also successful to the season's story as his questionable methods bring him into conflict with Clark who is now trying to figure out what sort of hero he wants to become.
The Doomsday story is a well written one in itself and Doomsday is interpreted in a way which is both unique in style yet never undermines the characters standing in the mythology.

It was perfect, so good everything i wanted it to be but then they screwed up. Why did they have to bring Lana. I wish Erica Durance could have been contracted for more episodes cause she left a huge gap when she left for a few episodes midseason. The whole Lana Storyline was meant to give her character Closure, it didn't give it closure it messed up the Clark and Lois relationship for this season but it can be rectified next year. The first few episodes were amazing it was everything i had hoped for when i started watching smallville all those years ago. Clark and Lois finally start to realise they are in love with each other and we get some excellent episodes. The season ended poorly but the series coped well with the cast changes.
best episodes; Odyssey,Plastique,Instinct,Committed(The first almost solely Clark and Lois relationship episode yet),Identity ( we see Clark starting to clear up the streets of metropolis akin to Superman, The press dub him the Blur),Bloodlines, Bride, Legion,infamous,Hex and Stiletto.

Smallville Season 8 is an improvement on Season 7 and very nearly the best season of them all. However it has been let down by some shoddy writing in the middle of the season and also a very disappointing last episode.

The first problem is the re-introduction of Lana and the whole nonsense about her being some sort of covert, ninja type warrior who gets her hands on a alien body suit that gives her super-powers. Putting this story aside, bringing Lana back virtually stopped the season in its tracks as the story moved away from the genesis of Doomsday to a soppy love story that has the usual Smallville sad and predictable ending.

The second problem is the Season Finale where the fight between CK and Doomsday should have been far better. The whole thing was over in a couple of minutes and I couldn't help feeling let down and disappointed given the excellent story lines leading up to it.

Finally, my last gripe is that the effects around Doomsday could have been better! Doomsday is meant to be the ultimate destroyer not a bloke in a suit!

I am looking forward to Season 9 with it, hopefully, being Lana free.

I've been watching Smallville from the start, and while the show rarely reaches the amazing standards of other shows, it still entertains me enough to keep watching.

Season 8 of the show suffers from the law of diminishing returns, that Smallville has been experiencing since it began. I can't really pinpoint any oustanding episodes in this season, as I could with previous ones, but overall the arc of the season was good, discounting the awful 5 episode return of Lana and "Lex" as well as the disappointing finale.

New characters are always welcome when a show has gone on for as long as Smallville has, and Tess was a great addition in my opinion. DAvis was also very interesting, at least at the beginning of the season.

Despite the law of diminishing returns thing I mentioned earlier, this season is actually an improvement on season 7. It's more focused and has a slow burning story arc, but come the finale, nowhere near the excitment levels of previous finales.

I really enjoyed this season of Smallville. I've been a fan since the start and have watched this show fluctuate in quality over the years; yet it never really seemed to fulfil its potential. A potential it always had when armed with such a rich comic book mythos and such a talented cast of actors. Until this season that is. Not to suggest that this season is perfect and a year where Smallville fully realised that potential, but it is a season where the writers went a long way towards achieving this. It certainly helped that Smallville gained a new writer (Brian Q. Miller) whose episodes were excellent. And we were rid of Al Gough and Miles Millar (the old showrunners); this fresh blood helped inject the show with a renewed vision for its future.

The usual players that we've come to know over the years including daddy Lex, Lex himself and Lana Lang have all left the building. Leaving centre stage to Clark, Lois, Chloe, Jimmy, Oliver (he's back!) and two new characters name of Tess and Davis. I thought this change of line up truly reinvigorated the show and I particularly enjoyed Tess as a villain -- seeing Ollie again was also gratifying. Justin Hartley being well deserving of a regular spot on Smallville.

The season opens as Clark joins Lois Lane at the bull pen... as with anything hilarity ensues and Clark must learn to deal with this new situation. Something which takes him a good while. This season really sees Clark acting like a hero, accepting his destiny and going a long way towards mending the damage of his horrid relationship with Lana Lang. I found myself adoring Clark again. Something I didn't think would happen -- Tom Welling certainly looked a lot happier, as opposed to bored!

There are four main threads that hold together the plot of this season.
