You used my favorite line! What's funny is that now when I watch the show, I say to myself, "Oh, that would be a great quote for Tariel to use in her cut." LMAO Can you believe it? HAHA And that was the best line, I thought.

How much did you love Heroic!Clark?! I absolutely thrilled at the sight of him saving the day, nothing but a blur as he sped from crime scene to crime scene at the behest of the police scanner, leaving dazed criminals and thugs scattered in his wake. I especially liked seeing him fight regular crime, the underbelly of the human existence, rather than an exotic array of meteor freaks and aliens.

YES YES YES!!!! It was what I've been waiting for!

He was literally leaping tall buildings in a single bound, people! And it was a heartbeat away from flight itself! Awesome.

YES!!!! I had tears in my eyes! "He almost flew!" I kept saying that over and over. Yes, I talk to myself during my shows.


Was Clark wrong? Yeah, I think so. He's never believed that the end justifies the means; that's Ollie's mantra. I fault Clark more for undermining the trust those kids had for Chloe than for investigating them in the first place, though, because that in turn undermines everything she's trying to accomplish at Isis. But I think Chloe was wrong, too, for not trusting Clark with the names in the first place.

Nah, here we disagree. I think Chloe was the only one wrong in this instance. If Clark had threatened someone to get the information, or hurt someone, I would agree that he was in the wrong. But he was simply using information, information that may be confidential but when has that ever stopped Chloe before? This is a new Chloe; the old one hacked into numerous secret files and didn't care that she was invading privacy. Suddenly now it's wrong? Because it was her responsibility to "protect" those kids? Nope, I'm not buying it. Clark had every right to ask her, simply because in the past she would not have hesitated to hand over information that would help stop a killer.

In the past it's usually been Lana who gets their special attention, but now that she's gone, is it Chloe's turn? I sure hope not, because I like Chloe, but in this episode I found her pretty annoying

That's how I've been feeling for the past few episodes. I don't mind that Chloe is getting a lot of attention; she now has second billing, as Allison rightly should. What I don't like is the way Chloe snipes at Clark and puts him down (that's how it feels, anyway) and talks to him like a child. It's getting worse with each episode, and maybe it does have to do with Brainiac, I don't know. I'm sick of her treating Clark like he has no brain, though. Like he's somehow doing everything wrong. And yes, her telling Clark he should join the group...WTF is right. She is NOT qualified to run the meetings. She is a meteor freak, but only in a small sense. She has not felt the ostracizing that most of the freaks have, except perhaps around Jimmy. And that's in the past. I love Allison, and I used to love Chloe. She needs to snap out of whatever she's doing, though, because this is not the Chloe we all know and love.

and saying she feels an ease with Davis she's never felt with Jimmy? Does this mean I can go back to hating the Chimmy, and stop trying to be a good little fangirl and accept it? Because this is making my head hurt.

HAHAHA no kidding! I like Jimmy (somewhat; he's kind of a weenie at times), and I like Chloe, but I just don't see it between them! Chloe needs someone more intense. Jimmy's just...boring. I'm sorry, maybe that's why she likes him. He's easy. His darkest secret is that his dad's alcoholic Maybe she needs the simplicity. But I really like Davis a lot and I think he's much more suited to Chloe.

Well, except when he pulled the Chloe card to pressure Davis into letting him ride along in his ambulance, that was lame.

See? Weenie. *nods*

In every episode certain quotes just jump out at me, and i write them down. I have fun deciding which one to use. I usually try to pick something that Clark says.

Clark's heroic moments always fill me with this crazy combination of joy and pride. I've been feeling that a lot this season!

I've adored the Chlark friendship for so long, and I don't want to see that lost on the show. To see Chloe in trouble, however, and in danger of losing herself to Brainiac, and then brought back from the brink by Clark, is a story that could be wonderful if they handle it well. But this episode didn't seem to have anything to do with that.

I like Jimmy a lot. I just don't think his love life is the best story for the character or the actor. And I find the Chimmy neither believable nor charming. I do think it's hilarious that even TV Guide comments on how much the fans hate the relationship! :)
