I enjoyed this review immensely. You make some incredible points I love the way you stated this:

was a valiant effort, but Clark had no balance, and even his best was not good enough to satisfy the impossible standards he had set for himself. He was stressed, irritable, and distracted. I love him to pieces for wanting to save everyone, but clearly, this couldn't go on.

I think this episode was a good starting point even with it's faults but I did have a slight reservation during the episode because I felt the beginnings of Clark's character after so much progress,regressing once again. And I couldn't agree with you more in regards of Chloe. I actually liked that their argument was something that Clark and Chloe got over but I found Chloe's behavior annoying and unfortunately not surprising. She got in lecture Clark mode and I'm so over that. I hope this is not something that will be consistent. I want to like Chloe again damn it!

Thanks! You know, although we saw Clark being too hard on himself and doing some questionable things, I really felt like this time he was different. He didn't get mopey, he got more determined. And he didn't back down when Chloe confronted him, or let her guilt him into feeling bad. He listened to what she had to say, but he came to the conclusion that he had overstepped his bounds on his own, based on the sum total of his experience during his investigation. All actions that convince me that at the end of the day, this Clark will be back out on the streets, fighting the good fight, and never again will he retreat to the loft to brood or lick his wounds. So if he took a step backward, I think it was a small one, and understandable given the new challenges he was trying to process.

Well, I suppose some might call it fanwanking, but that really is how I saw it in the episode. And I give a lot of the credit to Tom.
