Thanks so much for your comment, Valerie. I can't tell you how hard it was to NOT give in to rage on this one, and maybe I should have. I find myself totally bummed today, to the point where everyone in my RL is asking me what's wrong. All over a TV show, of all things.

I still believe Clark can be a good Superman. A fine hero. But I think he'll be a sad, broken, lonely, guilt ridden hero who does what he does out of a sense of loss, disappointment and a pathological desire to atone. And thats depressing as all hell.

Exactly. And part of what bothers me about it is how wonderfully Tom could portray Clark's lighthearted moments, and what a joy that would be to see.

I am completely boggled by those who loved this episode (and there seem to be quite a few out there), or at least the ones who aren't die-hard Clana fans. It was character assassination all the way around, everyone looked bad at some point. Well, except for Lana, of course.
