I was sort of emotionally exhausted after watching this and way more than a little confused about how I was supposed to view this relationship and these characters - and that's just never a response I like having to a SV ep. ::sighs::

I have to say, for me, I've watched it twice now, and I realize this might be a very unpopular opinion - but I'm not even noticing a whole lot of Clark POV. He seems to merely be agreeing with Lois' (IMO) halfbrained reasoning for most of the ep, endlessly flipflops and then has that last scene where yeah, he briefly articulates his thoughts.

I think I had a lot of expectations from this ep, given how terrificly well it started, and for me, it just imploded towards the end in the worst possible way.

Thankyou for allowing me to express my opinion so freely here. Please know that I still tremendously enjoyed reading your review. :-)

That's very interesting to ponder! Now I want to watch it again. I know I was disappointed when he let Lois's speech about why the Blur was keeping her in the dark sway him from telling her the truth. For Clark's POV, I liked the kitchen convo with Chloe and the barn scene the best.

I was completely swept up in the performances, especially Tom's, and had a rare moment where I totally embraced the angst. It really was worlds apart from my normal experience watching this show. My cold stone of a heart felt nothing during the final loft scene in Requiem, for example. :) And now, with some distance, I have to admit I'm leery about what happens next.

I think we're headed for a breakup, and I'm fine with that, I'm just worried about how the show is going to handle it. I would love to see both Clark and Lois spend some time alone, figuring out who they are as individuals, outside of this famous couple.

Thank you so much for your comment! You know I always love hearing your thoughts on the episodes.
