And he really did craft a beautiful episode - it was dark, but not at all depressing.

I felt this way, too, and to be honest, I was surprised. S8 Clark doesn't get dragged down by the darkness, he rises above it! How awesome is that?

I can't get over how many people think that killing in cold blood is a perfectly valid option.

I've seen a little of this attitude, and it always boggles my mind. Not just because I feel like anyone who watches Smallville should know Clark better than that, but also because what they're suggesting is just WRONG. Is this what they practice in their own lives? Yikes. :)

I wonder who can bring Ollie back from the edge. He's on the slippery slope, and he's sliding fast. And I didn't really think about the fact that he must know what Tess did to Livewire and Mirror, but you're absolutely right. Even if Clark didn't tell him, Dr. Emil probably did.

I definitely felt sorry for Plastique; she seemed excited about the possibility of being a force for good in the world. She did turn on a dime, though, just like last time. The girl clearly has issues.

Parasite creeped me out, big time. Even the nature of his power seemed inherently evil, stealing other people's abilities. He's too much like Sylar on Heroes! :) And hey, where was he in Cure, when all those people were going to Curtis Knox to try and rid themselves of their meteor powers? Maybe he can set up a business on the side. He can change his name to The Cleanser. ;)

Parasite was creepy, which is why I'd welcome him back - I personally think the show should do a few FOTW episodes each year to just have some fun and show us what Clark can do ONSCREEN. Cause I hate that 99% of the RBB's career has happened offscreen so we really can't see what legacy Clark is forging. Anyways, Parasite is a great villain in Superman canon. His abilities changed significantly over time but in the usual version, he sucks humans clean of their life force. With metas, he absorbs the powers for only a fairly limited period of time and has to go back for another dose.

I've enjoyed a lot of the FotW episodes over the years, and I would love to see Clark in action as the RBB more. Not every episode needs to be steeped in whatever the current mytharc is. I'd also like to see more episodes of Clark investigating stories for the DP, and then dealing with whatever he uncovers. That's what I liked about all three of the episodes that Bryan Q. Miller wrote this season. Committed and Hex had Clark investigating with Lois and Chloe, respectively, and Bulletproof had him going undercover on his own. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing him in action.

Parasite sounds even more sinister in the comic book version, and his name makes perfect sense given what you've described. And I could easily see that actor taking him to the next level.
