I was surprised that I enjoyed this episode, given that it was supposed to be a Chloe/Tess episode. Having said that, there was not nearly enough Clark in this episode for me but what we did have was well written! My favourite scenes were with Clark & Faora. Sharon Taylor was stunning as Faora.

I am not on the Clark blame train so I didn't walk away thinking the events that unfolded were all his fault but I can certainly see why many would come to that conclusion.

Sacrifice was supposed to be the episode where she was finally held accountable, where she reaped the consequences of her questionable actions this season. Was anyone surprised when that didn't happen?

I think there is still an opportunity for Chloe to be held accountable for her actions(not likely to happen)and I think she has paid a price for her questionable actions(i.e. her sloppiness) but she hasn't been held accountable for what she has done to Clark. I also want her to be held accountable for what she did with Davis & her role in Jimmy's death. But I don't think that will happen. I think TPTB have a different definition of being held accountable than I do.

I am intrigued to see how the Clark/Zod showdown will play out. All I can say is Clark better come off as the hero he is!

Either way, I will watch for Tom! Beautiful caps!!

I felt the same way. I went into it apprehensively, figuring that whatever focus was left after Chloe and Tess's scenes would go to Oliver, and the episode didn't play out like I expected at all. The story Justin gave us was nicely balanced, and in spite of his relatively short screen time, Clark's presence and importance were unmistakable. The Clark/Faora/Zod storyline drove the action, and the Chloe/Tess/Watchtower part was definitely secondary to that.

I was especially happy to see that Justin didn't use this writing opportunity to emphasize his own character, or give himself all the good stuff as an actor. :) I loved Oliver in this episode.

Yeah, I'm not holding my breath. :)

I think she has paid a price for her questionable actions(i.e. her sloppiness) but she hasn't been held accountable for what she has done to Clark.

I guess she paid a price, but it seems like so little compared to what everyone else sacrificed. Sacrificed! Get it? ;) And I've accepted that she will never be held accountable for all she's done to Clark, this season or last. I don't think the show holds her culpable at all. I agree that Chloe had understandable reasons for doing what she did, but that doesn't mean she should be given a free pass for all her actions.

I think TPTB have a different definition of being held accountable than I do.

No kidding. BP and his defective dictionary. :P

I am very excited for the finale now, though, as you well know. :)

I loved Oliver in this episode too, it was interesting to see his take on Oliver and to see he gets it!!

I completely agree, I think it goes back to BP's definition of "held accountable".

Now two more episodes to go, the spoilers look good particularly the ones from today :D Bring on the final episodes!!

I know! That was so awesome! His Oliver truly is one of the good guys.

I am pumped for the final two, even with Ausiello's hint. :)
