Nice review, as always. You have a wonderful way of expressing yourself.

I'm not quite as over-the-moon about this ep as you, but I thought it was solid enough. I had some quibbles. But I'm trying to just not say much instead of raining on others peoples parade. So, I'm keeping it short.

I like the clone angle. Honestly, I haven't even tried to come up with a theory, because I'm often wrong about SV, so why bother? But this is probably the most plausible theory I've heard thus far.

And thanks for the Pretty caps. :)

Oh, and I totally agree with you that Tom was made to wear black.

Thanks, Valerie. I really did like the episode. After watching it a bunch of times, I've come to the conclusion that their objective was to set the stage for the path each one of the regular characters will travel this season, and I think they succeeded there. As usual with Smallville, they packed the episode as full as they possibly could. I can always think of scenes I wish they had had time to show us.

One thing I noticed when choosing the caps was how unrelentingly dark the episode was. I hope the entire season isn't like that. I know Metropolis will never match Smallville for warmth and color, but even in the cold city you get sunshine!

I was ridiculously pleased that we got a scene with just the black tee, without the coat. Tom looked amazing!
