I worship at the television altar
Smallville, why do you hate the character I love?

Hence, "fake baby" which character issues apart, was such a crushingly dull story to watch.

I agree, and it was tragic how it squandered the considerable talents of the actors, especially Michael. I am in awe of the diplomacy and restraint he always employs when talking about the show. I know he's sincere in his appreciation for the opportunities Smallville gave him, and his love for the people he worked with on the show, but I think Smallville is fortunate that he's also a gentleman, a professional, and the good boy his mother raised him to be.

But since that plot-line led exactly nowhere and Chloe regained her memories quickly - what was the point of making Clark look bad?

Exactly! It made no sense, it infuriated the Chloe fans, and it just gave the Clark haters more ammunition. What were they thinking?

I wonder what Tom thinks about that? He seems to relish the lighter scenes this year

I think so, too. Are we imagining that? Does he even care, as long as his new paycheck is big enough? And I thought this season had been a ratings success with those early episodes I loved so much, so why turn back to the darkness now? I will never understand how TPTB come to the decisions they do, or why their vision for this show differs so fundamentally from my own.
