I know this might be an odd comment but I think this is the best preview clip that has been released this season because it left me wanting to know exactly what Clark was going to say the minute the clip cut off. I don't think he has any idea about how to respond to the General's comments about the RAO towers because we, the audience, know that Clark already knows that his methods of bringing the building down were flawed. He admitted it to Jonathan in "Lazarus."

Isn't Michael Ironside incredibly well cast? What a difference a great actor makes in a role like this. He plays very well off of Tom.

This clip cracked my shit up. When Clark says, "It's good to see you, sir" and the General just kind of grunts at him? That is funny.

Someone on another board had a screencap of the General's list of chores. It's hilarious. He wanted him to clean the stables, regravel the driveway, recaulk the shower, fix the weathervane etc etc. All very tedious chores.

I really liked the way Clark stood his ground. He was polite for Lois' sake. I'm sure he's going to kill himself to be polite for her sake. But he's not going to be a doormat and I like that.

I'm looking forward to this one.

By the way...is Lois cooking in the background? That can't be good. LOL

I know! LOL! And didn't Al confirm on Twitter that Clark is definitely NOT cooking?

I've always wondered if Clark learned how to cook from his mother. He's been on his own for a long time now, and I like to think he's become an accomplished chef. Especially since Lois is particularly challenged in that area. ;)

I actually wondered if they were going to show him cooking for Lois at some point this season. I remember on "Lois and Clark" Clark was supposed to be a pretty good cook. You always assumed he had learned from his mother. He's also supposed to do all the cooking in the comics. Lois says outright that he does all the cooking and cleaning. So I wondered if they were going to bring that on to Smallville....

I still laugh out loud when I think of her serving him that pot roast last year and him trying to feed it to Shelby. And even Shelby wouldn't eat it. LOL

I'm not a huge fan of what happened to Lois in Persuasion, but that dinner scene was comedy GOLD. Tom and Erica were so good together!

I always thought it didn't make sense that Clark let the tower get as far along as it did, but I still don't have a problem with what he did in the end, especially with the way Tom showed us the depth of Clark's conflict over it. I loved that scene (although I think the imagery was unfortunate). But you're right, Clark himself has questioned that decision.

Michael Ironside is the bomb. I'm so glad he had room in his busy schedule to do this episode. And we already know he loves Tom, so I'm sure they had a happy reunion. I love how intimidating he is. My dad used to ask high school boys if they had a five year plan! ;) And you know I paused the clip on my very first viewing to read that list! At least Clark could super-speed through the whole thing in a matter of minutes.

I like the line Clark seems to draw between what's worth fighting about and what's not. He's picking his battles, and standing up for what the "vigilantes" do is a step toward becoming the public hero he's meant to be.

I'm looking forward to this one, too!

I didn't have a problem with what he did either. I agree with you about Tom's performance. It was clear that he was completely tortured over what to do. I really liked the scene as well.
I think the reason Clark is questioning it is because he has realized that it left a lot of questions with the public. If he had done it as Superman out in the open...he could have assured people that it had to be done. But because the act was shrouded in mystery....it could be perceived as a terrorist act. I like how this all fits into Clark's need to step into the light and show his face.

I'm with you. I love that Superman is so clearly nervous around Lois' Dad.

I agree...Ironside is the bomb. What a great actor. I really love when they have mature actors on this show. They have such a presence about them.

That's an interesting point. I hope we get to see Clark work through issues like that one to reach the same conclusion you have. I want to see him articulate his reasons for eventually going public, and to arrive at those reasons on his own, because of his personal experiences and beliefs.

I really love when they have mature actors on this show. They have such a presence about them.

I agree. For awhile it seemed that there were no "adults" left on the show, and I missed that. I'm glad to see so many return as we approach the end of the series.
