I was surprised that I enjoyed this episode, given that it was supposed to be a Chloe/Tess episode.

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.

I think there is still an opportunity for Chloe to be held accountable for her actions(not likely to happen)

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. :)
