Tom insists on being unrelentingly pretty, so here are 30 screen caps I loved from Echo
Love your 'caps! He's wearing Lexy purple!!!

Remember Truth in S3? It gave us insights into Lex and Lionel that reverberate to this day, and it did a much better job of meshing the dramatic and comedic elements of the story than Echo did.
Truth is truly one of the greats - every character got their showcase moment. This ep. was definitely not in the same league.

But holding Lex up as the example of ultimate evil seems wrong anyway. Nothing about him was ever black and white, and his last line on the show was to declare his love for Clark! I personally think Oliver could learn a thing or two about character from Lex.
Damn straight!

I suspect the mind-reading power was conceived as a great way to advance the Clois 'ship, and that the part about Clark's training was added on later to give the storyline more weight in the episode.
Bet you're right...Bryan Miller's script tend to be heavy on 'shippy contrivance.

Chris Gauthier was once again the quintessential Toyman. His performance hit the perfect balance between gleeful child and maniacal madman, and he threw himself into the role with delightful abandon. I hope the fact that Tess has recruited him means we'll see him again.
He's fabulous - Gauthier is obviously enjoying himself so much. (Maybe he's a fanboy?) Can't wait for him to face off with Clark again!

What makes this season's Clark work for me is Tom Welling's performance. He gives Clark a quiet dignity and inner strength that make him truly heroic. There is no mistaking his leadership, confidence, and determination.
Yes!!! It was another lovely performance from Tom again, moving from the comedic moments to the more introspective ones (and looking so damn fine all the while!)

I know!! And he looks amazing in it! It must be his way of remembering Lex.

That's true, and I remember how shocking all those reveals were at the time! It was an OMGOMGOMG episode! :D Lex broke my heart, poor baby. *sniffles* And I'll never forget the moment Lionel revealed his true nature without equivocation. THAT Lionel, who calmly explained why he murdered his parents, is the man who makes it impossible for me to believe he was ever reformed. Lionel was bad until the end. Magnificently so. :)
