Good review. This episode very much disappointed me. I didn't like the ending to Clana; it pretty much dooms every woman Clark might love in the future inferior to Lana. Anyone he loves will always be the choice he made because he couldn't have Lana. I so wanted Clark to grow up and realize he had grown out of his love for Lana.

I disliked Ollie killing Lex. I would have much preferred a tempted Oliver who in the end realized revenge wouldn't bring justice and chose to pursue Lex via a different, more legal, manner. I don't want Oliver a killer, nor did I like how Clark was willing to kill Lex once Lex ruined his chance to have a relationship with Lana. That wasn't very heroic.

I'm not bitter that the show didn't go the way I had hoped it would, but I won't say it doesn't hurt. I'm not sorry we have another hiatus right now; I think Smallville and I need to take a little break. Because I kind of hate you right now, show.

I think I need a break too from Smallville. *hugs*

Thanks so much! *hugs*

This is how I feel, too, and for me it is the worst offense among many in this episode. I think Clark should be alone now, because any woman deserves better than what he has to offer her if she isn't Lana.

I didn't like Ollie murdering Lex, either, and to have Clark fly in the face of the very thing he just got finished lecturing Chloe about, just because it was about Lana now, was beyond idiotic. It made Clark look bad, and it was a perfect example of how this show is willing to tear down anyone, even the hero of the story, to make Lana look better. They made it look like she was a better superhero than he'll ever be, and the whole thing made me want to throw up.

I think you know how badly I have to be hurting to feel this bleak about my show. I'm usually the person who finds something to love when everyone else can't, but not this time. I'm crushed. :(
