Wow, what an insightful, passionate review. I feel like I agree with you on practically all counts. It even made me a feel a little bit emotional! What's wrong with me?!

I don't think anyone has a more clear vision of the man Clark Kent is meant to be than Tom, and when he is given the artistic freedom to direct himself and craft an entire episode, something magical happens.

Exactly. Actually that WHOLE paragraph put this episode into such a profound context! This episode really centred in upon Clark's character in a way that took full advantage of Tom's own unique and personal perspective. It gave a very distinct, introspective quality to the episode.

Will Ollie decide he has more in common with Tess than Clark?

That's a good question, and I wonder if you're right...

I believe in you, Clark Kent. You go take care of Doomsday the best way you know how; just promise me you'll come home safe after, okay?

I feel the same waaay! I actually stand by this character, after all those seasons.

And I think I have to give thanks to both actor Tom and director Tom for the insane amount of pretty in this one.

Yes. He is too gorgeous. That is all. :)

Thank you! *blushes* What a wonderful comment.

Exactly. I was disappointed when Tom got sick and couldn't direct Hex, because he has such a gift for comedy, but now I just think he was meant to direct this episode instead. No one else could have given this story the same insight. How I wish he would record a commentary for it!

He looked amazing in this episode, scene after scene. He took my breath away.
