I am really excited for this episode. I felt so intensely satisfied with "Ambush" on so many levels. I feel like the emotional stakes just keep getting higher and higher each week for these characters...and right now...they have so much to lose. I know that's an odd comment. But I feel like now that we are getting into the nitty gritty of the season with these upcoming episodes....all the emotional development of the last few weeks really soldifies everything that these people have to lose and that they really need to hang on to each other. And I include Tess in that. I really hope that in some odd way they can all become some kind of family unit.

I think the cancer plotline is going to be tough for a lot people. So many people have lost parents to cancer/lost people close to us to cancer/fought cancer ourselves or been touched by it in a very intimate way.

I'm really curious how they are going to reveal what actually happened to Tess as a child. I think everyone is convinced at this point that Lionel was her father....but the question remains...what happened? Why was she abandoned like that? And what the hell is Granny Goodness doing to Clark in that clip? Why is he being tortured????

It also makes me really happy that the clip seems to reveal that Clark will go to the fortress at the end of the episode and see his parents. Big relief there.

Ambush really did put things on a whole new level for all four main characters. I wish every episode could be that good!

You're right, cancer has touched so many lives. My own father's battle with it made me stronger in some ways, and taught me a lot about both my father and myself, but mostly it just devastated me. I don't even want to think about what it would have done to me to lose him that way as a child.

I am SO curious about Tess, too, and I LOVE that Clark is in the middle of this storyline. I can't wait for this episode!

It also makes me really happy that the clip seems to reveal that Clark will go to the fortress at the end of the episode and see his parents. Big relief there.

WORD. Maybe I should have trusted that the show would know how important it was for Clark to be there, but I'm afraid past history has made me wary.
