This is such a wonderful idea. And I definitely think you've hit the best of the best. I would also include Crimson where Tom gets to play RedK Clark on a couple of different levels, and all with varying degress of "dangerous". I especially like how he goads Lex into a fight in the barn scene. Personally, I've always believed that kidnapping Lana and dragging her to the barn was really just a way to lure Lex. Because really, if he had wanted to kidnap her, why go to the first place Lex would look?

I also think another great "dangerous" Clark scene is from Oracle, when Clark is waiting in the barn for Lionel, convinced that Lionel had something to do with his fathers death. He's very chilling, sitting there in the shadows.

And I love his strut into Lex's office in Mortal, mad as hell, and ready to throw down. One non-powered guy to the other. I love the way Tom says the line "You want to see what I'm made of it?" ::love::

Oh, I'm so glad you liked it! I love all the scenes you mention, and you describe them so well. Originally I think I had a list of 18 possible episodes, and winnowing that list down to ten wasn't easy!

I have so much love for that scene in Mortal.

What was interesting to me was that there weren't any wildly out of control moments that I could remember in S7. I really think Tom gave Clark a new air of quiet strength this past season, and in that way brought Clark that much closer to the man he will one day be as Superman.
