Smallville: What I noticed about Crossfire [Nov. 4th, 2009|08:37 pm]

I think there's a SERIOUS conspiracy going on here, for reals! (Spoilers for "Crossfire" and "Kandor" inside.)



In this scene, Clark is about to be handed a microphone and I went: "Whoa! Unexpected Oliver!" It's not actually Oliver but he looks remarkably similar...

Not!Oliver calls Clark "Big Boy"and leers at him.

And then does this, which is somehow weird and phallic. Hand at crotch-level, why?


So...one Oliver lookalike isn't a conspiracy, but look who's coming up next week in "Kandor". This is Jor-El? We've seen Clark's daddy and he was not a rangy, spiky-haired blond.

I think this is an older Oliver from the future who has come back in time to mess with Clark's head, I really do.

Argh! That's Clark's dildo and Lex's purple testicle thingy. Stop playing with precious Clex artifacts, time-traveling Oliver!

Soon every SV role that's not Clark will be filled by Oliver. "I'm all around you, Clark. You can't escape me. "


Oh, and "Crossfire" also had Tess killing this bald guy to prove she is more bad-ass than he was. I am suspicious of that symbolism!


We are not amused.

sheesh!

Really how can two blondes produce a brunette? Now Slater & Sand's characters producing Kara, yeah I can see that. But genetics is genetics, Kryptonian or not. And yes there have been comments about how Clark looks so much like his biological father. which BTW in an earlier season Welling played in a flashback episode! OOOPSS!!!

Maybe this " Jor El" is an alternate earth or a genetic imperfection where his hair turns blonde. Yeah, that's the ticket.......

I do like how you point out the phallic and homoerotic elements in Smallville. The Clark scrapbbook thing looked waaaay not what a straight man would do! Maybe Clark is metrosexual?

Smallville is at its best when it's homoerotic!

Smallville tends to develop continuity amnesia - writers probably forgot that episode ever happened, which is a shame. Tom could play Jor-El again..
