Good review.
I always understood Clois might not be together on the show, because this is Smallville it's supposedly supposed to be before Clois. So therefore Clana comes in.

Clark hasn't been handled well, neither has Lana. but they stopped handling her well after season 4. lol. I am upset at the writers, but I don't think I could quit the show. lol.
I am re-watching season 1 right now, to remember the good ol' days and why I fell in love with the show. i need the boost right now.

Clana certainly has been annoying these last few years. The good thing would have been to let them have a good relationship and get it out of the way (a few season ago); figuring out that parting as friends would have been the right thing for them. Realizing they aren't truly meant to be. Being mature about it. And when the time came, Lois would eventually hold the key to Clark's heart, because of destiny. Instead of dragging it out and screwing it up and making Clark have all this emotional baggage to deal with these last few season. Off and on with Lana. And now it ends tragically and dumbly. It could have been so much better. but no. PS3 was smoking something when they wrote the last 2 1/2 episodes.

I agree also about the Clark finding another way to save the city and Lana. He did with Chloe and so many other things in the past. He's smarter than that. (heck, I could think of a few other ways he could have gotten rid of the bomb..lol) But the writers figured it was the easy way out for clana. I so hate them right now.
I feel for Lois, she is in the middle of it all and it's not even her fault. She deserves better. So does Clark. and so would've Lana...especially if they took a different route with her the last few seasons.

Oliver got screwed up too. So wrong.

I don't hate Smallville. I still love it. It just sometimes decides to go the wrong way. It always finds its way back though. And I am praying that it does starting in March. And if we have a season 9, I pray to God they make it up to us fans. We deserve better than this and so do the characters.

Yes, absolutely! Why is it so difficult for PS3 to see this? They could have had a bittersweet parting, with a lovely kiss goodbye and the promise to always be in each other's hearts, but still agreeing they were not meant to be together. I would think that would have satisfied Clana and Clois fans alike, but I guess they thought that would have been boring or something.

I won't be quitting the show. :) I just need some time to regain my perspective, and so this hiatus comes at just the right time for me. Watching earlier seasons sounds like wonderful therapy, I think I'll try that, too. Tonight I retreated into my Lois and Clark DVDs, and lost myself in a world where Superman adores his Lois, and the two of them together always make me laugh and smile.
