On the worst connection evah so somewhat shorter than usual...






LOVED THIS WHOLE THING SFM. SO PRETTY. EXTERIORS, I HAVE MISSED YOU. (Could have done without the stupid Lovely Bones effects, though. What a waste of money.)

OMG SO HOURGLASS. <3333








Level 3 and 33.1 callbacks! Also my OTP are acting like last season never happened which is more than fine with me.

It's like how in the premiere of Alias S4, Dixon was like, "LET'S TALK ABOUT LAST YEAR," and Vaughn was like, "LET'S NOT EVER TALK ABOUT LAST YEAR EVER BECAUSE LAST YEAR SUCKED." LAST YEAR SUCKED, NEVER HAPPENED, MOVE ON TO THE GOOD OTP STUFF YAY.





"Foolish girl."
"What was that? Chloe, where are you?"
"Sorry, Clark. But I knew you'd only try and stop me..."


Interesting that it was mentioned the "flashforward" was supposed to be in the this episode originally. Since it's yet to be explained or mentioned by Clark at all, I'm thinking the flashforward was intended to be seen by Chloe first here as originally planned.






Shattered/Mortal callback!




"Chloe. I know you can hear me.
You're the strongest person that I know when you're fighting for the rest of us.
Don't lose that now when you need it the most. Don't give up, Chloe."


EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE




"Don't worry. Everything's going to be fine. I saw it. Clark...
I saw you, too. You were the world's hero. And you weren't in black."





"Goodbye, Clark."


CHLOE YOU AND YOUR CIRCULAR LOGIC ARE KILLING ME. "I WASN'T IN THE FUTURE SO NOW I'M GONNA LEAVE FOREVAR AND ALSO DELETE MY ENTIRE DIGITAL EXISTENCE." But I've been waiting for her to erase herself forever so w/e I AM HAPPY EVEN AS SHE IS BREAKING MY HEART.

Moving on...




GUESS WHO'S IN TROUBLE WITH DADDY AND GROUNDED?

I could rewatch Clark getting verbally bitchslapped all day long on loop. THANK GOD. It all hit home, too, until Boseid gave him an unnecessary ego boost (YOU SHOULD FEEL BAD, CLARK).

I'm honestly not sure if there's not something still weird with Fortress Sue (calling back to "rule them with strength" is some weird shit) but everything it said to Clark was true. And THANK GOD because I can finally watch this show again without hating Clark for his inexcusable behavior last year now that Clark is finally admitting, "Maybe setting buildings on fire when I'm in a crappy mood is kind of a dick move."




How are you
Are you ever coming back?
I have changed
And I've realized I was wrong
I was wrong
Now I'll never see your face anymore
Oh, my love
I'd give anything for one more day with you


I'm kind of bemused at people thinking the song reuse was a budget move, given the countless other callbacks in the episode. They've been unbelievably deliberate in how they've cut the promos this year to foreshadow returns or emphasize their callback choices, and they obviously went digging to go find the shot of Chloe from the other scene to put it in the Nature Boy promo.






Between following this scene with Darkseid and the fact that SV lives to rip off Joss Whedon, the inevitable Boseid *~twist~* seems a no-brainer, but this scene still made me cry something fierce. What a great scene. Definitely the most quality thing on Smallville in years.

Still. NO DON'T LISTEN TO FORTRESS SUE SON. YOU ARE BETTER THAN THE SON I RAISED. I WAS A BIG FAN OF YOU SETTING THOSE BUILDINGS ON FIRE WHEN I WAS WATCHING UP IN HEAVEN! I MEAN HEY WE ALL GET ANGRY SOMETIMES AND LOSE OUR TEMPERS. IT'S COOL.

Riiiiiiight. Bo was always so cool with the idea of Clark losing his temper and going psycho on the populace. He wasn't even allowed to play football ffs.

Okay, and I was crying at the beginning. When Clark went, "I feel like every time I do something right, I do something wrong!" I just cracked up because THAT IS TEN FUCKING YEARS OF THIS TRAINWRECK IN A NUTSHELL.

And then the best piece of dialogue evah: "We all make sacrifices, son, and every time we do, we lose a little something in the process."

BRB DYING.




IN CONCLUSION: LOL GROUNDED UNTIL YOU STOP BEING A DICK, CLARK. (Have fun waiting on that one, Fortress Sue.)

I can't wait until Kara shows up to be super awesome and continue the verbal bitchslapping parade. PLZ GET HERE SOONER, NEXT WEEK, I LOVE KARA SO MUCH.

OMG NYONYO FULL PICSPAM OF PRETTY!!! How I missed these!!!

The fortress scene where Jor-El bitch-slapped Clark-El into shape WAS THE BEST THING EVER! Everyone is complaining that Jor-El was too harsh but they can all STFU and stop making excuses for Clark being a terrorist for a whole season! I still can't even believe that they addressed Clark's doucheness from last year! I guess they realized that burning down buildings and finding new women to strangle every week was the farthest from Superman they could have gotten!

Thanks for all the gratuitous OTP hand/shoulder grabbage! ♥♥♥ I love how she didn't turn around right away at the beginning and he had to grab her and stop her from leaving and held her foreeeeever like she would run away if he didn't!

I knooooow. IT WAS SO AWESOME.

My favorite part was that she was holding onto his arms back just like Freak/Eternal. I wish that had been more in the shot T_T But the way he grabbed her shoulder and spun her around was really nicely shot. I really loved them this episode. ♥

Gorgeous picspam! Haven't watched the episode but your commentary is making me want to look up clips of Jor-El bitching at Clark. I heard it was a good one! Calling out Clark's terrorist behavior? Automatic win. On a shallow note, I must insist on a wind machine for the remaining episodes AM is in. *Love* that last shot of her in that Chlark scene. Papa Kent, call back to Hourglass, 33.1....ugh. I miss that show

lol, if it had been MR instead of Voldemort!Lex, I would have been totally happy with this episode. It felt oldskool and I loved how many callbacks they crammed in.

And yes, Chloe's hair looked rockin' this ep.

YAY PICSPAM!! Your picspams are pretty much the only way I a.) know what is going on and b.) see the pretty. And so much PRETTTTTTYYYYY. So glad people are finally calling Clark out on his serious dick moves from last season. And the Chlark scene seems like it was so cute. I love that they're hitting the Alias reset button.

I would be like, "Maybe if we're lucky it'll be like Alias where they were like YEAH! LAST YEAR SUCKED! NOW WE'RE GOING TO TELL REALLY DEEP AND MEANINGFUL STORIES! INVOLVING ZOMBIIIIIIIES!" except SV already did their zombie ep last year. ALAS.

Whoa! Gorgeous picspam! Clark got bitchslapped? It's about time!

Also my OTP are acting like last season never happened which is more than fine with me.

Really?! Tell me more! :)

Yup, Clark was like, "LOOK AT HOW AWESOME I AM!" and Fortress Sue was like, "Yeah, okay, I was just kidding myself when I kept saying you were going to be a hero. It's never going to happen. You tried to kill someone for like the thirtieth time, I THROW IN THE TOWEL." Then it put the suit on ice so Clark couldn't have it, and I laughed forever.

Chlark have totally reverted like S8 again - last year they never even touched and now they're doing the clingy arms thing like Freak/Eternal, and Clark holding her hand. Fever/Abyss-like speech while the other is unconscious. Between the phone call with Clark freaking out, and the preview for next week showing Clark has been worrying and calling her phone over and over again since he hasn't figured out she left yet, the tone is not unlike Beast. From strictly a Chlark standpoint it's totally back to their S8 status. I loved them this episode.

SO PRETTY OMG. You always make the prettiest pretties. *hearts*

Haven't seen the episode but the fact they verbally bitchslapped Clark like the little bitch that he is? GOOD. He deserves that and so much more...

Riiiiiiight. Bo was always so cool with the idea of Clark losing his temper and going psycho on the populace. He wasn't even allowed to play football ffs.
LOL forever!

I'm just amused it's apparently a running theme. Cat gets her turn next week, and then apparently Fortress Sue called Kara from the other side of the galaxy because it's decided it wants to trade Clark in for the better model. THIS IS GONNA BE GOOD.

I wasn't sure I'd ever see one of your picspams again, with how the show's gone (I only watched for AM's last ep till... whenever).

Lovely as always and I love how you manage to highlight only the very, very important stuff, such as Chlark and Clark getting smacked down like a terrorist toddler.

Love your large Chlark cap of him gripping the tiny blonde in his huge man arms. I remember being upset there was no hug, but seeing that takes some of the sting away.
