Lionel's Multi-Dimensional Parenting Tips! [Dec. 6th, 2010|11:21 pm]

I noticed some deliberate callbacks to previous episodes in "Luthor". Mini picpsam inside.



Many of Lionel's quotes to Clark Luthor had a very familiar ring!

"I MADE your destiny!"

"We are long overdue for a father/son talk."

"I have sacrificed everything for your sake."

"I alone raised you in my own image..."

The best way to control a rebellious son....

Lionel also enjoys the unexpected GRAB!

The parallels between Clark and Lex were one of my favorite parts of this episode. As horrific as I know Lex's childhood was, I wonder to what greater extremes AU!Lionel went when given a seemingly indestructible son. I think he ramped up his twisted game, with psychological torture to match the level of physical abuse Clark could withstand, and became a monster who was truly out of control. He certainly was frightening to behold, and in a way that left me disturbed and distressed. As opposed to all hot and bothered, which is how I felt watching Tom's very scary Clark Luthor. ;)

One of the reasons I think this ep should have been a two-parter would be to see Clark Luthor interact with Lionel - would he still be all alpha, or is he completely terrified of him?

I don't suppose there's a hope of Clark Luthor travelling dimensions for a future episode but I would love to see him again.

Always creepy...

Creepiest Lionel moment ever - when he does the double thumb eye brow stroke just before Lex's electric shock in the asylum. CREEPY!

I think this episode is more of SV trying to appease us Lex fans.
Very likely!

I loved how Tom played evil, and it looked like it was really fun for both Tom and John.
They seemed to be thoroughly enjoying themselves & were such fun to watch!

Bad Tom is hot! You'll probably find some nice source material for artworks too!
