"Checkmate" (Season 9) (Episode 17) (April 9, 2010)

Not a particularly interesting or exciting episode, IMO. I did like the Matrix-like scene when Clark rescues Chloe, and enjoyed seeing J’onn using his powers. Otherwise, lies, betrayals, secrets. Yadda, yadda, yadda.

Clark, you’re right not to trust Chloe. How many times has she stabbed you in the back? Same for Ollie, and they’re doing it to you again by hiding those K-weapons or whatever Chloe had stashed!

Amanda Waller: Lady Kick-Ass! ;)

She also has good taste! Her comment about Clark being nice to look at and having her cake and eating it too? Oh, a woman of discernment! ;)

The trouble with secret agents is that they have to lie so much, they forget how to tell the truth. Who knows if Tess is truly going underground or not? Maybe she’s a double-double agent or something, LOL!

Sadly, the Government persecuting the JSA and now the JLA would probably be how things would go in the real world, just like the Superhero Registration Act over in the Marvel Universe or the world of DC’s The New Frontier. No way would Government types allow super-powered beings to run around freely. Can’t have do-gooders helping save the world unless they’re on the Government payroll, right?
