While I'm glad that Clark is now "in control," how long did that take to figure out? Four seasons? Over 80 episodes? And Zod did it in one show? I think it makes Clark look slow on the up-take yet again and I hate that.

Actually - and I know you went addressing this comment to me, but it goes into something I wanted to mention on this subject for a while - I think seeing as it took Zod no time at all to figure it out, and that we saw a young Jor-El know what to do with Lana's Great Aunt, and that Bizarro seem to have no problem being with Lana?

I think, like the flying issue, the problem of NOT being able to was really all in Clark's head. It was never anything that he really had to be taught. He just had to trust himself. Have more confidence in who he is, which is something we've been seeing over the last two seasons, and especially this one.

I agree. We've seen Clark develop and grow tremendously since he decided to fully embrace his destiny at the beginning of S8, and even more so this season. His training is an important part of that, of course, but so are his activities as the Blur, his relationship with Lois, and his increasing willingness to take on a leadership role. The boy has become a man, and now the man is becoming a superhero.
