Clark works hard to clean up the destruction done by Zod and develops what he thinks is his first cold apparently caused by his powerless time in the Phantom Zone. However, he soon discovers it is a new power: super breath! Meanwhile, Lois lands a job at The Inquisitor, the local tabloid and begins to investigate Clark, which forces Chloe to try to keep her off Clark's tail. Lana moves in the Luthor mansion with Lex, who believes someone is following him, which quickly proves to be true after he is kidnapped by a renegade government agent after he had witnessed Lex commit crimes during his possession by Zod. Also, Lionel meets with Oliver Queen, a young and reclusive millionaire and an old boarding school friend of Lex's, who arrives in Metropolis and offers his business to Luther Corp.

Chloe Sullivan: Clark, with a sneeze like yours, that says a lot about your lung capacity. Now just take a really deep breath and blow it as hard as you can.
Clark Kent: That is a steel door. It's not a birthday cake.
Chloe Sullivan: I don't see anything else working. Come on, let's see what you got. Huff, puff, and blow this door down.
[Clark takes a deep breath and blows down the steel door]
Chloe Sullivan: Good thing you didn't have garlic today.

Fairly good episode... but something's wrong there
15 November 2006 | by andremarekSee all my reviews

Sneeze is the second episode of the sixth season of Smallville. It's pretty good, although there are some ironic elements, it does have a lot of good stuff in it.

I liked the introduction of Green Arrow and the mystery that is surrounding his character. I also liked the character that kidnapped Lex and his sadistic way of trying to learn about Lex's ability. But let's face it, the second episodes of every season this series has had so far have been much better. Mainly because the situations around the season finales hadn't even been solved yet. There was always need of two episodes to solve whatever has been going on the past season, but with this season ultra fast and conclusive "Zod" (don't get me wrong, I think this was a good episode, but with some mistakes too), Sneeze was just a regular episode that could've been fitted at the middle of the season and the change would've had almost no effect whatsoever in the continuity.

Maybe I'm being too harsh on the writing, but it is a fact that the events that happened during the last season finale could've lasted for at least one more episode and the narrative would've felt better.

I'm really hoping that as time passes, this season of Smallville improves. It's not that it's bad, but after the fantastic season 5 I was just hoping for something else, something better. I'm looking forward for next week's Wither, in the hope that this does get better.
