What a wonderful picspam.

What I liked particularly is how you captured not only the love in the Martha/Clark relationship, but also the complexity of it. In the Memoria scene, Martha is tentative around Clark. You get the feeling that this is a moment she'd generally leave to Jonathan, but Jonathan isn't there. So, to see how that scene develops is lovely. Then there's Unsafe, where Martha takes a hard line with Clark, and an unfair one in my eyes. Then the moment in Solitude, where Clark's words seem to leave Martha a bit speechless (and AOT is just great there). Then Subterranean seems to show how far they've come, to almost equal footing.

A family moment I would add is Reckoning, both the scene where Clark tells them he told Lana and proposed, and also the scene where Clark and Martha are getting ready for the funeral.

I love these!!!!

The dynamic between Clark and Martha has always been fascinating to me, no matter what version of Supes I'm looking at. I think Tom and AOT were wonderful together, and I've been a big fan of Martha on Smallville, although I was really mad at her in Unsafe, and thought she had lost her mind in Crimson and Promise (it was encouraging to hear AOT express the same sentiment in the S6 Companion).

Both of the scenes you mention would make great additions to this collection. I wanted to include a happy moment from Reckoning, but found I couldn't call any of them my favorites, because I have such a strong aversion to anyone getting married so young! I don't know why that particular concept makes reality rear its ugly head for me, but every time I watch Clark or Lana talk about getting married I scream NOOOOO inside. LOL!

It makes me sad that Clark has no family left on the show now. Unless, of course, you count Jor-El, which I don't.
