. Because in the AU that is this show, Clark's one true love isn't destined to be Lois Lane. No, our Clark's heart will always belong to Lana Lang.
I think that unfortunately, this is sad but true. I just don't understand why they had all of the Lois and Clark flirting and whatever else this season if they were going to do this Lana arc. Maybe they didn't know all along what they were going to do with Lana's return, but even the episodes still to come don't seem to make sense with what we just saw in the last few episodes.

I also still don't understand why Clark thought it was okay for Lana to put on the suit or skin or whatever it was instead of destroying it.

I have to make special mention of Justin Hartley's magnificent bare chest.
I definitely enjoyed looking at Justin's chest. Is this a running inside joke on set that they only put him in a shirt when it's absolutely necessary? Not that I'm complaining...And the handcuffs? Guh!

Why does the Super!Sex always have to be so violent?
I don't understand that either. I guess it's supposed to be comic relief or whatever, but I would have preferred to see a soft, romantic love scene...

I've been having issues with my iTunes lately and haven't been able to download any episodes since Bride. I have no idea why, but my iTunes just stopped working all of the sudden. :-( I guess I need to call their helpline.

Another place to find screencaps: www.tvscreencaps.com. There aren't as many as on KeAKAck and I'm not sure if they're HD, but they're better than nothing.

If there's a Season 8 Companion Book, I'll be very curious to see what PS3 has to say about this nonsense and how they justify it.

Yeah, what you said. :) I think we pretty much agree on everything, although duskwillow's review HERE has made me hopeful again. She has a great way of looking at things.

I just don't understand why they had all of the Lois and Clark flirting and whatever else this season if they were going to do this Lana arc.

Yes! I think having Lois fall so hard for Clark when they knew they were going to give him another ride on the Clana-Go-Round was a bad idea. Go ahead and let them snark and even flirt a little, but don't have Lois admitting the depth of her true feelings in Committed, or show us all those meaningful looks and the almost kiss in Bride. Lois deserves better than that.

I also still don't understand why Clark thought it was okay for Lana to put on the suit or skin or whatever it was instead of destroying it.

I had a big problem with this. It was inconsistent with how Clark usually acts, as well as with what is the right thing to do. To me, it made it look like Clark was willing to break all the rules if it's for Lana, as did his intent to kill Lex after Lana absorbed all the kryptonite. I hate that they went there.

iTunes help has always been prompt and perfect for me. You could try reuploading the current version of the iTunes software first, that might work.

Thanks for the screen cap link. It's always good to have another source for the pretty! :)
