First of all, thank you so much for this comment! It's that perfect combination of logical, thoughtful analysis and ruthless snark that I love, and that only you can give us. :)

I think anyway you squint and look at this one, it sounds like Oliver is settling for Chloe because he can't have Lois, and apparently Chloe won't ask much from him. Pardon me while I swoon over how romantic that is *rolls eyes* Why are they bothering with this?

It makes no sense to me either, and I think most of Justin's answer there is him thinking out loud, trying to figure it out for himself. Chloe doesn't want much, which is good, because Oliver doesn't have much to offer? As I said upthread, he makes it sound like they're friends with benefits. And I don't think Justin is necessarily sold on the idea just yet.

So, Oliver thinks Lois is the love of his life, he's going to be having a fling with Chloe, but who knows, he might still have something brewing with Tess?

Honestly, I think this is Justin's way of saying, "How the hell should I know? I only work here." A lot of what Justin said in all of these interviews makes me think he's feeling a bit powerless at the moment.

OK, All sorts of ragey thoughts going on in my head now.

Oh, this answer totally set me off! You'll notice there was no favorite quote at the top of this interview, but I almost posted this one as my least favorite. Why does something have to be wrong with Clark's plan?! Why does the fight against Zod have to be a collaboration? I would say it should be Clark's plan, with him telling Oliver and Chloe what to do, except after Doomsday we know they can't be trusted! Is Zod going to be Doomsday redux?

And why can't Oliver start to understand Clark's way a bit more because he's spending time with Clark. Why does that need to involve Chloe?

I don't even get how this is supposed to work. Chloe clearly doesn't understand Clark anymore, how is spending time with her going to help?

And really, Oliver and Chloe think they are the right people for the job? Over Clark? Jesus-fucking-Christ!

I know! I get it, show, Clark isn't Superman yet. That doesn't mean he has to be wrong all the time! He is the hero of the story, and we should be allowed to see him shine!

WHY?? Why is it necessary for Oliver to have any meaningful direct interaction with Zod?

I agree! This is Clark's fight.

I think they think of it as them telling 2 different hero stories, as opposed to them thinking of how using Oliver can enhance Clark's story.

I think you're right. I just don't know WHY.
