//I think I didn't express that very well in my review because I split my thesis into two separate paragraphs. :P//

No, I think you did a great job explaining your interpretation. And like I said, I can definitely see it as a viable option, and it most likely is, come to think of it. But I dunno, much as I normally can't stand Jor-El and his awful "tough love" methods, this may have been the one time I felt he didn't exactly have a trick up his sleeve, so to speak.

I certainly agree that the people in Clak' life could not even concievably be standing there, alive and kicking, if it wern't for him - considering just how many times hes saved them and whatnot. And in that sense, I can completely see your fanwank as applicable. I just wish this ep was better spaced out. A two parter might have really helped in filling in these blanks. I'm not sure why SV doesn't believe in two-parters, several times this seaon alone, I've felt the need for them.

Stupid writers.

I have a vague memory of hearing AlMiles talk about two-parters on one of the DVD commentaries. Something about how every season essentially started out with a two-parter to resolve all the cliffhangers of the season before, and how they wanted to get away from that. Maybe they just said no more two-parters, ever. I agree there have been a number of times this season alone where the story would have been better served by a longer, deeper exploration of events.
