"You live in your mother's house, and you work in a basement, is that correct?" hee!

It's clear from that comment that The General thinks Clark is a complete and utter loser. If they fully go the way of the comics on this, that opinion he has of Clark isn't going to change all that much sadly, for both Lois and Clark.

I love Michael Iornside in this role, and it makes me sad they didn't bring Lois' dad and sister back long before now. Though doing it now does make for some great drama now that Clark is a more active hero with an alter ego, which he wasn't when the General and Lucy first showed up back in season 4.

I've been waiting for this episode since it was announced. I think this is the ep that will finally really get down to all the story lines starting to come together.

I've been wondering if Smallville would go the way of the comics with how the General feels about Clark. Lois is being very conciliatory in the clip, and I figure the episode could go one of two ways. Either the General will be adamant in his disapproval of Clark, and that will contribute to the more antagonistic relationship we expect Lois to have with her father, or else Clark's actions over the course of the episode will change his mind, and that will bring Lois and her father closer together.

I would have loved to have Michael Ironside back for every season. He's a great actor, and the General's relationship with Lois has so much to do with the woman she becomes. It would have been nice to delve into that a bit more.

I think you're right about the significance of this episode. Much like Hostage, it's about a lot more than just a family reunion.
