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 actually disliked this one a lot. Of the first 4, most certainly my least favorite.

Words cannot express how much I'm hating this Oliver crap, and that we've had back-to-back eps of Clark apologizing to Oliver, while Oliver says absolutely nothing back to him. Unreal!

I wouldn't liked that first scene if we hadn't had Clark backhand a completely innocent hostage, and then apparently never address the issue.

Toyman was great, but once again, he really has nothing of significance to do with Clark. And thats just a bummer.

Weirdly, this episode seems to have united TwoP and K-site....in not liking it!

I did like how chuffed he was to have Clark as a "fan." And that Clark figured out he was talking to a robot. The face-melting was cool.

I kept mentally willing Oliver to finish the damn speech! Toyman crafted it so beautifully - it said all I've been wanting to hear. (And Justin delivered it well, though I have no Ollie-sympathy.) But it peeves me that Ollie sees himself as Lex: not even close, pal! You will never hold Lex-rank in Clark's life.

Heh, yeah, so much for that poor guy. There was some callousness around the victims tonight. Lois, don't insult the traumatized lady! And Tess shooting Toyman in the knee seemed gratuitous. He'd totally work on the heart for his own kicks. (I fear Tess did this to avenge Oliver which makes it ever suckier.)

Still enjoyed it more that Savior & Metallo, though not so much as Rabid. But then, I was expecting maximum Oliver so having lots of Clark was a nice surprise.
