I was disappointed, though, that in finding herself, Lois felt she had to leave Clark behind.
That was disappointing. And even after having seen Salvation I wonder why a "break-up" was necessary.

It wasn't very fun watching Tess be abused again. She has become Smallville's punching bag, mentally and physically.
Not at all, especially considering it was done with Martha's knowledge if not tacit approval. I used to think Lex got more than his fair share of poundings but Tess really had a rough season.

There were plot holes aplenty.
There were weren't there? The plot at times did seem to defy all logic. I guess it would have been more annoying in a regular episode but I guess I'm willing to trade a bit of logic for an episode that offers the return of Martha and Perry.

that perfect, golden sunlight of the Kent Farm?
How great was it to finally be able to see something on the TV screen once again? I feel like this whole season has been nearly unbearably dark in both look and narrative. I hope season ten takes a much lighter approach.

There was a lot that Clark could learn from seeing himself mirrored in Martha.
So true. I hadn't even thought of it from that perspective! Though there is one thing I would never want to see mirrored -- an image sun bathed Lois bringing back memories of Clark's love for Lana, LOL.

Great review, I really enjoy reading your perspectives on the show!

Me, too. I guess to make everything more dramatic, but it kind of reminded me of all the times Clark and Lana broke up, only to come back in the next episode with nothing really changed. I mean, I'm glad they're still together, but I feel like Lois's behavior was a little immature, and OOC for the adult relationship I thought had developed between these two.

It really got to be a bit ridiculous. Let's hope they don't go there again in S10.

I'll admit that my squee over this episode exceeded my problems with it by a wide margin. :) And of course now, after the joy of Salvation, I feel very forgiving indeed.

I couldn't agree more! How fun was that bright and shiny glimpse into the future in the finale? I loved it! As hot as Tom looks in black, I hope we've seen the last of the Blur's current outfit, and the darkness that has characterized this season.

Ack! Don't give them any ideas! LOL!
