But, dang it, it still grinds me that a) Lana'll never get called on any of her misdeeds, and b) we'll never get a decent, organic END to the Clana.

Those are my biggest disappointments as well. Lana did things of her own free will for which others have ended up in Belle Reve, or worse. In particular there has always been a double standard when it comes to Lex, and how he is judged for his actions. And it kills me that Clark is okay with everything Lana has done, and equated it last season with the money he stole during his summer in Metropolis under the influence of Red!K.

So many people posted about how that last loft scene made them cry, but all it made me do was roll my eyes and yell things at my TV screen. My husband felt compelled to remind me it was just a TV show. :)

I hope that was the meaning of that scene. I mentioned it in a post and was hastily reminded that Clark may well have been thinking that he never should've saved Lex that day at the bridge--if he hadn't, he could still be with LANA!

I saw those comments, but truly, I think that's the bitterness talking. Clark came there alone, to observe a private moment, a final goodbye (although there's no way Lex is really dead). I think that scene was all about the Clex, and I think Tom's acting in it was all about his respect for Michael. Just look at the caps:

Lana found her necklace in Trespass (most blatant snooping ever on her part), but left it there. They showed Clark looking at it at the beginning of Instinct. Is was in a box that he kept, inexplicably, in a kitchen drawer. Sure, Lana could have found the box innocently while looking for the coffee filters, but opening it was definitely snooping.

Some are suggesting that Lex has taken over Ollie's body.

You know, I had that thought myself for a split second when they showed Oliver in the wreckage of the LuthorCorp board room, with Lex's photo in the background, looking at the kryptonite ring, but I think it's much more simple than that, and just Oliver being consumed by darkness.

Thanks for your comment!

And thanks for the lovely caps! Oh, I so hope you're right. They've given us pitifully little in the way of Clex for so long!

I couldn't remember what happened with the necklace between "Trespass" and "Requiem," so I'm glad you could. (I'm pathetically inept at tracking the "objects" of SV, from the Octagon to the Stones...) Hee, that it was in the kitchen drawer--Clark has odd storage habits. Remember how he also kept that pic of Lana in her riding habit in the tool box in the barn?!

Gah. I HATED that Martha put Lana in Clark's room in "Trespass". After Jonathan died, in particular, she became such a POD. I mean, even if Lana'd been sort of a friend of the family (and, early on, I'd gotten the impression that Martha wasn't a HUGE Clana shipper--I think she just didn't want to see Clark get hurt, but I also liked to think her mother's instinct told her the Clana was a poor match) her son's had a painful breakup with this young woman, who's now engaged to and pregnant by her son's former best friend, with whom he's ALSO had a grave falling-out. Awkward, much? I know Clark's a generous person, but that was just all kinds of wrong! I call Bad Parenting on that one, big time!

Sorry, but thanks, for the vent!!
