I don't think Chloe's fleeting wish for Lois's life was jealousy so much as it was wistfulness for the path she left behind, the path she was on the last time her life was truly happy.

You read my mind. This is what I said in a reply to one of the comments on my review:

"And there are people saying that her missing that life in this episode is proof that it still runs in her blood, but I think you can miss something for a whole lot more than just that. To me, it seemed like Chloe missing her reporter days was indicative of how topsy-turvy her life has been the past two years, what with her meteor-infection coming to light, dying and coming back to life several times, her wedding ceremony going awry and then her marriage breaking apart. It seemed natural that she would long for the days when everything was less complicated, and didn't necessarily strike me as her missing the actual reporting part of that life."

GMTA! \o/

So to see Chloe embrace the role of Watchtower as the next phase in her life not only made me cheer, it seemed like a logical next step for her.

I would quote that entire paragraph, but YES. This is exactly how I feel about it too. And I love the "she can't reveal the truth anymore" concept ... I'd never thought of it that way.

The way Clark struck a heroic pose and manfully called 911 was hilarious, and the whole scene on the roof of the DP made me laugh so hard I could barely breathe.

Absolutely! I think the rooftop scene was my favourite of the episode ... it was so damn funny!

I guess there's no question that our boy truly has grown up. Last week he tried to get Tess drunk, and this week he looked directly at Lois's breasts and commented on them! :)


And how cute was Clark, with the big sigh of resignation and the self-conscious look around the bullpen before he handed them over? *draws hearts around them*

My second favourite moment of the episode. I don't think I've adored Clark more than I did in that moment. :D

He doesn't see Chloe as someone to protect and indulge, he sees her as a colleague, a strong and valuable member of his team, and I like that.

Yup. I took it as him not allowing her to mope, and that's a good thing, IMO. Sometimes people need to be shaken a little to see the good side of things.

I like Oliver's new office at LuthorCorp, especially the ginormous Queen family crest. Overcompensating much, Ollie? ;)

Hee, I noticed that too!

Pretty caps! Our show/cast is so gorgeous. :D

I hope you had a great birthday, T! ♥

Wow, we really are on track again, aren't we? \o/ I'm so glad someone is loving the show as much as I am right now. I thought this episode was good for every character, but obviously not everyone agrees.

That rooftop scene gets better every time I see it. Tom was adorable, and just as he did in Noir, he played the classic Clark Kent perfectly. It was definitely my favorite part of the episode.

I took it as him not allowing her to mope, and that's a good thing, IMO. Sometimes people need to be shaken a little to see the good side of things.

Yes, and Oliver's never been the type to baby anyone. Look at the way he always talks to Clark! :)

Thanks for the birthday wishes! Sorry I'm so late to reply!
