This is pure speculation on my part, but I honestly think it's because AlMiles left. I don't think they had the same appreciation for Tom's contributions to the show that the current showrunners do, and I don't think Tom had the same freedom he does now when they were running things. And Clark was definitely a different character in S7. It may be my imagination, but I swear Tom came into S8 acting like a huge weight had been lifted from his shoulders, and I'll always believe that the change in leadership was at the heart of it.

I know some people miss AlMiles, and think the show has gone downhill since they left, but I don't agree. They gave Smallville to us, and they were wonderful storytellers, but I don't think they ever did right by Clark, or Tom. I don't miss them at all.

I was stunned when Tom signed on for another two years, and I almost fell over dead when he showed up at Comic-Con. I have to think something fundamental changed to make those things happen. Whatever it was, I'm beyond thankful for it!

Ooh, don't get me started! See what happens? :D
