Now, I'm not saying Clark has any obligation to tell her, or even that he should; I do believe that is his decision and his alone. I'm just saying I don't understand why he doesn't. I think the real reason is simply that TPTB have decided that he can't.

Exactly. IMO, the show should either not make such a big deal of it, or they should give us a logical reason for him not telling her. Right now, they're doing neither.

I'd probably feel differently if everybody EXCEPT Lois didn't already know. That's what makes it so ridiculous to me.

Precisely! And I keep feeling like it would be safer for her to know. She gets in trouble almost as much as Chloe does these days, so I really don't see why knowing that Clark is the Blur would put her any more in jeopardy.

I think the whole Fake!Blur thing is messed up. If Lois had a close connection to the Blur before Zod started impersonating him, she should have noticed the difference, in both his voice and his demeanor. And if her connection wasn't that close, then everything she feels for the Blur is in response to Zod. Yuck.

ITA. And have you read the synopsis for the season finale? Not helping. :/

I appreciate that Clark as the Blur warned Lois not to believe anyone who calls from now on claiming to be him, but why didn't he tell her she's been working for a fake? And wouldn't it be helpful to know exactly what the Fake!Blur has been having her do, and what information she has given him?

I didn't think of this, but it's a great point. Ultimately, with this show, it always comes down to the fact that some characters need to act stupid for the sake of future drama. It's probably why I appreciate TVD so much - the characters are all of average intelligence, but no one is made to look dumb just for the sake of the plot. That's where the writing makes such a difference.

Tom was so gorgeous in Charade! Between the disheveled tux and the glorious grey tee, I was swooning every other second. :)

At least this is consistent! That still of him in the tux makes me so happy! <3

I feel this way, too. This is where I wish they hadn't let Jimmy in on the secret and then killed him off. I get that they have to have someone who is close to Clark who doesn't know his secret, and Lois is the only one left who fits that description. Virtually every other person who has ever been a series regular in the history of the show knows, plus about a gazillion meteor freaks and other bad guys, not to mention every character from the DCU.

Note to Smallville: Secret? I do not think that word means what you think it means. ;)

If they go the secrets and lies route, my head truly will explode.

You're so right. Or just to give us the perfectly painted scene. The Blur's call to Lois was all about love and sacrifice and heartache. Introducing a nuts and bolts conversation about the Fake!Blur would have totally ruined the mood. :)

Sharing the TVD love! Is that show amazing or what? And it just keeps getting better! Between Stefan falling off the wagon, David Anders' Uncle John, and the incredible chemistry between Damon and Elena, I can't wait for new episodes!
