I love your wonderful enthusiasm and optimism. Its very welcome in a bleak fandom landscape. LOL

I honestly think it comes down to something very simple with Clana...its the only thing they have to do with Lana. She's not going to go totally evil. They played with that arc, then pulled back on it. I can't believe anyone truly thought they wouldn't. And she's not going to go back to Lex. They'd never let that happen with Lana knowing Clark's secret. Plus, I believe it would be well and truly sick to have Lana go back to the guy who faked a pregnancy and miscarriage, and then later smacked her. I think the door on Lexana is closed and locked shut. Doesn't mean they won't throw out a bone to Lexana shippers, i.e. Wrath kiss, Fracture sex scene. But its just the same lame tease they give to other shippers who aren't going to get what they want.

So, what to do with Lana? She has to be with Clark. It sucks, but I think its just the most convenient place for them to put her.

but no man who utters the words, "It looks like Gumby found his Pokey,

*grooaann* Who wrote that line? What does it even mean? Gumby and Pokey weren't doing it. Just, EWWWWWW!!!

And everything you said about Clark? Yes, yes, x100!!!

I didn't hate this episode, but I was disappointed. I wanted so much more for Pete's homecoming. This just wasn't what I had in mind at all.

I agree that they don't know what to do with Lana. But I kind of wish they would just let her go, then. I really thought KK would just say no to coming back, but I guess she traded a movie opportunity now for more Smallville torture later.

Who wrote that line? What does it even mean?

It actually made me think that the writers watch Supernatural. :) Do you remember that part of The Kids Are Alright?

And everything you said about Clark? Yes, yes, x100!!!

Yay! I'm glad we agree!! I was reading some of the episode thread at TWoP, and I couldn't believe what some people were saying about Clark. You weren't kidding about that place! I love how you defend him, though, you're always so logical and eloquent as you point out how wrong they are. I'm still your biggest, albeit mostly silent, fan!

I know what you mean about Pete's homecoming. I would have liked it better if it were happier, and I still can't believe they didn't have even one scene with Clark, Chloe, and Pete together, but I did find it believable, and I thought SJIII did a great job.

Thanks for the nice words. I figure TWoP needs a few never-say-die Clark defenders.

I truly don't believe KK will be around for many eps in S8, so we might finally get that ending. We just need to hang ona bit longer.

I don't know SPN eps by name. Which one was that?

It's the one where Dean goes back to see Lisa, the woman with the little boy who looks like a mini Dean. When he's trying to convince Sam to go, he describes the incredible weekend he once spent with Lisa, a yoga instructor. He calls it the bendiest weekend of his life, and refers to Lisa as Gumby girl. Then he says, "Gumby girl. Does that make me Pokey?" It was pretty groanworthy, but somehow Dean can make lines like that almost bearable. :)

Ah yes, now I remember. But SPN can pull off jokes like that, especially since he's using "Pokey" as a double entendre.
