But I'm very glad a close-up of those delectable nipples was selected!

Oh, you know I had to include that shot! Thinking about the logistics of filming that part of the scene makes me giggle. Poor Tom, all wet and half-naked, having to emote to a camera lens that must have been just a few inches from his chest and face. I love the actors for all they go through to make the magic for us, and the wonderful way they commit to every scene.

What's likable about Lois is she doesn't beat around the bush; she tackles life, work and love head on.

That's true. And I did see a hint of that confident spirit when she said to Clark across the bed, "Oh, I will be. I mean, I am." I loved the way Erica delivered that line. I'll admit I responded to the innocence of the moment, I saw it more as Lois letting Clark set the pace, and them both seeing their first time as an emotional connection, just as much as a sexual one. I'm such a sap! LOL!

Anyway, I think the fun (and the fire, for that matter) will be there, probably as soon as skin touches skin, in fact, but the sweetness of them standing on the brink, a little shy and a little nervous, touched my heart. Did I mention I'm a complete sap? *facepalm*

I was scratching my head at that too. It made for a weak ending and yet another veer out of character for Lois.

It really didn't work for me, and I think it was another example of Smallville knowing where they want the characters to end up, but not how they get there. They put the cart before the horse, and the story suffers.

There were a lot of fun little moments, and I credit the actors for making them sparkle.
