The writers don't write the ODs, publicists do. So obviously for one reason or another, they want Chloe fans watching. Remember, this is the CW, which means they want the young female demo. (By the way, I don't watch live and I download the episode for Chloe scenes and skip the rest. I would be willing to watch if we started to get some s1-s8!Chloe and some heroic!Clark.)

That they are going back to mentioning Chloe in the ODs had to be triggered by something. It may not be the supposed loud Chloe fans on the internet, but something did. (Where are these fans, I always get drowned out by Chloe haters being loud, bitching and whining?)

I remember back in the back end of s1, they did their research and found girls preferred Chloe over Lana. Then, we get s2 which tried to turn people against Chloe and into Lana's arms.

What I'm trying to say is that, in my opinion these ODs are catering to Chloe fans...why? don't know. Anyway, that's my opinion and thanks for sharing yours. :)

And thanks for sharing yours, but the ODs are only an overview of the episodes - and the ODs have been dead wrong about some things in recent years. Because this isn't season 1 anymore, and the network the show is on now is not the same as it was back then.

Know why Chloe's mentioned in the ODs recently? Because she's involved in the plot in some way significant enough in these episodes to get a mention. Same reason Lois will get a mention in an OD or not, or Oliver will get a mention or not.

They write these ODs to try and drum excitement and press for the episode in question, and word them to give a basic overview on what's going on that does that in the best way possible, not to specifically cater to one specific fan group and get them to watch.

And tariel's reply went into talking about the show as a whole, not just the ODs, which is what I was also responding to originally when talking about the writing.
