Smallville “Fortune”

We all knew it was coming. This week’s episode of The Hangover Smallville showed us what our favorite characters Alan, Stu, Phil, and Doug Clark, Chloe, Lois, Oliver, Tess, and Emile look like when they are piss drunk off of a little bottle of champagne from Zatanna. I hear Mel Gibson was going to have a cameo in this episode but Zach Galifianakis Tom Welling refused. Ok, ok…I’ll stop. Yes, this episode was “heavily influenced” by the 2009 hit The Hangover, but at least for one episode we got to see our heroes have a little bit of fun.

What happens when a group of super friends can’t hold their liquor at an engagement party? Well it’s exactly what you’d think: Emile dresses up as Elvis with Tess as the hottest backup singer in recent memory; Lois loses her engagement ring in a game of black jack; and Chloe marries someone…possibly Clark! Oh yeah…and at some point they stole a monkey. Yep. You read that right.  A monkey.

So this was just a silly little distraction episode where everybody had cart blanche to be an *ssclown for 44 minutes and not worry about the darkness or the VRA or whatever the hell it is that has our rag tag band of misfits always so stressed out.  Seeing Emile dress up and singing like Elvis was random, but amusing nonetheless. And make no mistake about it, Cassidy Freeman has skyrocketed in my book to one of the hottest women out there, and her little go-go outfit she sported in this episode supports that.

Now don’t ask me to tell you logically why everything happened the way it did, but at one point in the episode Lois and Oliver had to dress up as Vegas showgirls to hide from a group of mobsters. While it was amusing to see Oliver in drag and I always welcome Erica Durance being in as little clothing as possible, I couldn’t helpe but feel like I had somehow seen this crazy scenario before…and then it hit me. This was the exact same scenario from Zack and Kelly’s Saved by the Bell: Wedding in Las Vegas!  I’ve tried to tell people this before, but I guarantee you in one way or another EVERYTHING in life comes back to Saved by the Bell. Still, it was a fun little sequence and was ironic to see Oliver prancing around in a bikini while Allison Mack gets to be a badass shooting up people like she’s Shaft. I think I maybe have just thought of a possible spin off…

The big news of the episode was that it wasn’t Clark that Chloe had married…it was Oliver! She’s taken a job in Star City (Oliver’s home turf) and we’re left to believe that they’re going to live happily ever after and I really hope they stick to that. There are a lot of rumors that Chloe will die or sacrifice herself, but I think they’ve dangled the Chloe dying carrot one too many times. At the very least hopefully they give us a few episodes of Oliver and Chloe (I refuse to use their shortened name…just can’t bring myself to do it) just being happy for once. No drama, nor running…just let the kids have their moment.

Now that the silly episode is out of the way hopefully that means it’s going to be nothing but kick-you-in-the-crotch action from here on out. A boy can dream…
