Superman: [narrating] Luck. That's what it all boils down to, doesn't it? The smallest break one way or the other. It can save a life or destroy one. And you can't fight it, no matter how strong you are.

One of Superman's better episodes
17 April 2009 | by overtheedge27See all my reviews

Clark Kent interviews a man named Walker who is about to be executed in a few days for murdering a woman and stealing her necklace. During the interview, Clark (being something of a walking lie-detector) begins to have his doubts on whether Walker is actually guilty. He begins to investigate the case and ultimately finds evidence that could clear Walker, but unaware to him, before he drove off to the mayor's office with the evidence, his car had been planted with a bomb. Superman now has to deal with the dilemma of everyone believing his alter ego to be dead, and even worse, with the evidence clearing Walker being destroyed in the explosion, he now has to find a way to prove Walker's innocence before he's killed, even if it jeopardizes his identity.

This episode is one of the many reasons why I love Bruce Timm's adaptation of Superman. We get to see Superman use his brain as well as his muscle, Luthor is no where to be seen (don't get me wrong, he's a great villain, just a little overused), with the moment where a teary-eyed Lois, who always seemed more interested in Superman, reveals that she had feelings for Clark, or Superman commenting on how he needed to be Clark Kent or he'd go crazy, and a bone-chilling ending which I dare not give away. You'll just have to see it for yourself.
