I haven't had time to do any kind of a proper re-watch, but I've watched bits and pieces of episodes, and I've found that I'm seeing everything through Salvation-colored glasses. :) I'm just really loving my show right now, and Tom's recent appearance at the Upfronts only reinforced that. S10 can't get here quickly enough for me!

I've tried a few times, but I've never been able to rank my favorite episodes. There are just too many, and my opinion can change on a daily basis. But before Salvation aired, Commencement was definitely my favorite finale (and I think it's worth noting that Beeman directed that one, too). I've actually taken a lot of grief for that choice, and for my love of S4 in general. Most people I know cite Covenant as the best finale, and by a wide margin.

Right now I'm calling Salvation and Commencement about even. The latter had the big special effects and the big story to go with them, but Salvation was such a showcase for Clark, had that super fun teaser, and did some amazing things with a much smaller budget. I loved them both.

It's amazing what a Clark-centric episode that validates his beliefs and actions and delivers on plot/action/romance can do for fandom morale.

It seems so simple, doesn't it? Are you listening, writers?
