Brief comments *spoilery*



- Opening teaser was awesome! Clark using his smarts & a bunch of powers & saving everybody. Excellent rescue! And there was even some sunshine and a scene shot on location! Good Smallville, here's a cookie!

- The nerdy witness who just wanted attention was very endearing. I want him to turn up at every Metropolis crisis situation, pining for Clark's attention.

- We're supposed to be entranced by Clark's insight into Lois's thoughts but I actually felt more emotional for all the poor Queen company investors stressing about their money.

- Lois gets her best line of the season: "You can't lose me, Smallville. I have the internet on my phone!"

- Toyman is completely awesome for a) writing an insulting speech for Oliver and b) forcing him to confess to Lex's murder or get blown up real good. Bravo! If I could write a speech for Oliver that would be the precise one I'd choose. It's looping in my head right now! Toyman, you are welcome back any time!

- Of course, this being Smallville, Clark has to wreck it by apologizing to Oliver for ignoring his epic man-pain. And then Oliver looked in a window and - DAMNIT! - there was a stupid fake!Lex reflected there. Stop using fake Lexes!!!

Better than I expected and the last ep. I'll see live for a month.

I could barely see the Lex with the bad picture on my tv--I wasn't even sure it was him. I'm glad Oliver is at least feeling some guilt. And, yeah, I hated Clark's apology: Oliver's the new Lana, I guess. I immediately thought: why couldn't he ever say something half that understanding that to Lex?

IMO, Clark is able to take a more measured approach to Oliver because he's not crazy in love with him. With Lex, there was always that spurned-lover-angst thing going on. With Oliver, Clark talks like a sobriety counselor: there's much less emotion there. But you're right about Oliver being Lana this year - Tess is willing to kill to protect him? Clois are going to have a rift over him? I think Toyman has the correct attitude towards Blondie!
