I'd been planning all week on writing a long semi-rant about how Smallville so often goes wrong by having people behave OOC for the sake of the plot.

This is so true, and they've been doing it for years. It's always struck me as lazy writing, and it usually puts me in a position where I struggle to decide if I should take the behavior at face value, and be frustrated with the character, or "blame the writers," and purposely ignore something that has become part of show canon. I understand why they had to break up Clark and Lois, but it still doesn't make sense to me, and I don't think it cast Lois in the best light.

I didn't like the Martha/Maxwell Lord connection much either, but at least I found it plausible. I think a lot of boundaries get crossed when a mother is trying to protect her threatened child. That doesn't make it right, though.

Of course now that I've reveled in Salvation and watched it countless times, I'm inclined to forgive the minor quibbles I have with how they led up to it. :) And I loved that final scene between Clark and Martha beyond all reason. ♥
