You know how, at the beginning of the season, some were having a problem with Lois having so much screen time? Well I was one of those who was never bothered by it simply because when Clark is playing off Lois he always tends to have a lot to do, and always looks smart and heroic. And those two things are why Rabid and Idol are my favorite eps of the season.

So after last nights episode, reading this OD just made me groan. Because Lois isn't in it, meaning another episode with Clark standing around getting talked to while Chloe, Oliver and Tess get the big character focus - and Clark will most likely be apologizing for everything again.

Come on SV writers, learn a different tune already. *eyeroll*

Given that filming ended yesterday, it's too late for any of this to change now. My only hope now is that out of Chloe, Oliver and Tess we'll only be left with one of those three next season. (And I tend to think it will be Oliver. After the events of Checkmate, Tess' name is about to be written down in a Death Note and Chloe will just leave for some reason since AMs contract is up and there's still been neither a word or rumor that it's been renewed.)

Rabid is still my favorite episode of the season, for a lot of reasons. Kandor is another one I love, so I know they can write Clark well, with or without Lois. I realize that the OD's can be misleading, but as you say, Checkmate doesn't exactly inspire confidence when it comes to how these writers will handle Clark.

I think it's time for Chloe to go, but I want both Oliver and Tess to stay. I have to agree, though, that things are looking pretty grim for Tess right now.
