Thanks, Val! Sorry I'm so late to reply, my online time is severely limited at my sister's house.

When Chloe and Clark were talking about moving on and not getting mired in the past, I thought that was a pointed message to the fans as well. The show is growing and changing, and I, for one, couldn't be happier about it. In spite of the horror that was the Lana arc, I still appreciate how PS3 reinvented this show after AlMiles left. How many shows can do that after seven years?

I think this episode was a good way to bring the feelings to light, but also to show that they need to be on hold...until next season. I think that works best, for the show, and the relationship.

Yes, absolutely, I agree with everything you said, you explained it perfectly. And Hex set up S9 so beautifully! I think we have the promise of a developing relationship between Clark and Lois, and a new role for Chloe with Oliver and the JL. Even so, by not having Clark say one definitive word about his feelings, they leave them open to debate. It wears me out.

Uh, oh, with every other "veteran" involved in a potential arc for next season, things aren't looking good for Jimmy, are they? :(

I have to think they're setting up some kind of crisis of conscience for Oliver, what with that scene of him with the ring in Requiem, and his brooding looks at the Lex headlines in this one. But I'm wondering if that will turn out to be a S9 storyline as well.

Tom was a delight! He obviously puts so much thought into his performances, and his instincts are spot on. I wonder how the episode would have been different if he had directed it. I'm so excited to see what he brings to Injustice!

I like Bryan Q. Miller, too. I think he gets Clark right. And like with this episode, I go back to Committed and watch the scenes between Tom and Erica over and over.
