Thank you for the lovely review. I like the clone theory as you explained it - for one, it's a lot less problematic than a time travel loop since Zod has a major role to play in Krypton's past. And that's a great point about why Lois's time travel jump stopped at one year in the future - becasue potentially at least there is no more.

As for the rest, all I can say is yes, I totally agree and share the urge to squee and fist pump and say "atta boy, Clark" at random moments. I love your take on the Chlark interactions particularly - she tried so hard to push his buttons that she wound up pushing mine and I find it hard to talk about her dispassionately.

I really don't want it to be time travel with Zod. Lois's time travel is already confusing enough! :)

I know a lot of Chloe fans are saying that her behavior in Savior was OOC, but I disagree. We saw Chloe and Clark become more and more alienated as S8 went on, until they were leading almost completely separate lives. I think their estrangement is what led to Chloe deciding to follow her own plan for saving Davis instead of trusting Clark, and it was also the reason that Clark didn't realize sooner that Chloe was lying to him.

This friendship is fractured, which is tragic, and I do hope it can be repaired. But right now, Chloe is hurt, angry, and grieving, and given that, her actions aren't OOC, they make perfect sense. Even so, Clark is right and she is wrong. And I still want her to apologize to him.
