Lois and Clark go “Hangover” style in the most recent episode of “Smallville.” After Zatanna sends a magically spiked bottle of champagne to Clark (Tom Welling) and Lois (Erica Durance) for their bachelor/bachlorette parties, the gang blacks out after the toast. The next morning, they can’t remember anything about the night before, so they must try to discover what happened. Where’s Lois’ engagement ring? Did Clark steal an armored car? Each thread pulled reveals a little more of what happened overnight.
It’s full of fun moments – scientist Emil Hamilton becoming an Elvis impersonator singing with Tess Mercer (Cassidy Freeman), for example. This episode also introduces Amos Fortune from the DC Comics.
It doesn’t necessarily move the overall season plot forward, but episodes like this can be a fun change of pace. The “Smallville” cast, including former regular and now regular guest-star Alison Mack as Chloe Sullivan, get a chance to show their comedic chops.
