You think so much about every part of the ep, have such deep and sincere points to make, and mostly I just sit here and think Tom is pretty. I need to be a better fan.

I think I agree with most of your points. I'm putting a lot of Chloe's current behavior on her whole Braniac absorption issue, because otherwise I would be mightily pissed at her, and I don't want to be. I hated her the first few seasons, then grew to really care about her, and I don't want to switch back. I'm thinking the whole Brainiac thing might be her reason for bonding so closely and quickly with Davis- perhaps the Brainiac in her somehow senses Davis's true nature, and sees him as an ally in his battle against Clark. Just a theory, of course.

Loved seeing MM, loved his scenes with both Clark and Jimmy. Poor Jimmy, he's such a likable character, and I have a feeling he's the one who's going to end up most heartbroken in all of this.

LOL! You don't need to be a better fan! And believe me, I spend A LOT of time thinking about how pretty Tom is! :D You know, I've been told more than once that I over analyze everything, so maybe all my points are things I dream up in my head. :) I can't help it, though, I'm just obsessed with this show.

I wonder if we'll ever know what of Chloe's behavior we can attribute to Brainiac. I have no doubt that she's been affected beyond her increased brain power, but I don't know how that plays out onscreen. Certainly Brainiac would be motivated to estrange her from Clark, don't you think? I like your theory that it's the Brainiac part of her that is drawn to Davis. That makes so much sense!

I didn't like Chloe back in S2 when she was so unreasonably jealous all the time, but I adore her now. I don't want to see her snipe at Clark, especially with the self-righteous tone they writers gave her in this episode. It reminded me so much of S6 Lana, and I didn't like her at all.

I couldn't have loved MM more. Phil Morris is the bomb. :) And I do like Jimmy. I think you're right about him, poor guy, but I hate the Chimmy, so bring it on! :D

After last night's ep, I guess we'll have some more Chloe/Brainiac questions, won't we? It's certainly confusing, to even try and figure out who's CHloe and who's Brainiac and who wants what.

I actually like the CHloe/Jimmy pairing, but only to a degree. That a could should be getting married when each of them have such doubts- not a good idea at all. But what I do like is the bond building between Clark and Jimmy, and between Lois and Jimmy. I like the idea that the Daily Planet 3 are coming together and forming a cohesive team.

More MM please!

Oh, yes, I enjoy the dynamic between all of them, and I love watching them work together.

I just felt so bad for poor Jimmy. He was so wounded when he thought Clark didn't trust him!

I know! I get that it's for his own protection and all that, but I felt bad for Jimmy, too.

YES! I agree 100%! It's exciting to see it forming, to see the future starting to come together!

So far I like all their scenes together, and all their possible permutations (L/C, L/J, C/J). I hope we get to see more of Clark and Jimmy together, especially at work.

Oh sweetie, you can't help it! None of us can! We all do that, we just stare at the beauty helplessly. But see, Tariel plays it back when she writes her reviews (I think she does, anyway), so she's already witnessed the beauty and can better prepare herself for it the second (or third or fourth) time around.

What a surprise it was to see you posting here! Such a welcome sight, though. *hugs* Intelligent talk happens around here, but mostly I'm like you--I stare at the pretty and sigh. LOL

Hey, I know you! Thank you for introducing Tariel and I, we've hit it off wonderfully. I love her introspective Smallville posts, they really do make me feel less shallow.

I usually do rewatch an episode, just to marvel at Tom again. So pretty, and so talented. Sigh.
