Lois does treat Clark differently than everyone else does, and I think that she, more than anyone else, allows him to set his burdens aside and just be himself, as a man. That's what I love most about her. And I was just beaming by the end of that phone call, too. :) The DP scene was so adorable, and then the phone booth scene was so much MORE.

I couldn't agree more that it's the man who makes the superhero. In fact, I did a picspam on that very subject a couple of months ago! :) I love that Clark makes the same choices, with or without his powers. That's just who he is, and that's why he's MY hero.

The Clana shippers are grasping at straws, but it still bothers me that the show left them even that slim opening by not giving us true closure on that relationship. I understand why, and I've read what Kelly Souders said about the kryptonite being a symbol, but I still think they were just being gutless.

As much as I love Chloe, and as fabulous as AM was in this episode at tugging at my proverbial heartstrings, a part of me is angry with her for not trusting Clark enough to tell him everything. And I have a feeling I'm going to be even more angry by the end of tonight's episode.

I don't know if you read spoilers, so all I'll say about Jimmy is that AA is doing a great job of portraying him on the edge. I don't like the storyline, but I can't fault the performance.

Okay I read Huzzlewhat's spot reaction and I have to ask: Is it really that bad? *eyes Beast warily*

Well, Clark was awesome in it. And super pretty! :) Tom's acting was wonderful, too. And don't read any further if you don't want to be spoiled.

Chloe made me yell stuff at my TV screen. I like Oliver better than most, so I was fine with him until the end, when he was a complete ass to Clark, and I loved how he told Chloe off earlier in the episode. Even if you believe she did what she did to protect Clark (and I think her motives were a bit murkier than that), she still lied to him all through the episode, called him paranoid when he said Davis was still alive, sent him on a wild goose chase to Alaska, and went to the farm and stole the octagonal key, which she used to help Davis escape from Clark. How can Clark ever trust her again?

I didn't hate it like the Lana arc, because it didn't make Clark look bad, IMO. And SW does creepy really well. In fact, all the acting was great. But there's no doubt in my mind that Chloe is the new Lana. She was the martyr supreme in this one.
