As always, love the review. You've expressed beautifully why I find myself so unmoved by Chloe's situation. I do wonder though if Allison overplayed the snideness in previous epiosdes, because I think the showrunners expect us to sympathize with her. She just seems so unconscious of just how culpable she's been in this whole mess, just as she was up to her neck in last year's fiasco.

Anyways, enough of the negativity! I thought the Faora-Clark-Zod-Checkmate stuff was all top notch, and though the death of Faora and her child was horrific, well, it was meant to be. Now we can really believe that Zod will destroy the earth if he doesn't get his way.

I love your fanwank about the Fortress, and yes, such an asinine 'test' is entirely in keeping with the sadism shown by the Ship at the end of S2 in particular. Otherwise, this is a plot hole that goes all the way to China.

Thanks! You make an interesting a point about AM's acting choices. So much of Chloe's hostility and disdain is a matter of nuance, in tone, expression, and body language. Who is making those choices, AM or the director? And why so completely cold and contemptuous? It boggles my mind that Tess, who is a cold-blooded killer, is so much more sympathetic to me. If I didn't know better, or if AM were a less accomplished actress, I'd probably be wondering if she were mad at TW and letting it show! LOL!

I agree. What better way to show us what a monster Zod truly is? *shivers*

Otherwise, this is a plot hole that goes all the way to China.

Something all too common on Smallville, unfortunately. ;)
