Looking forward to the episode, though i may watch it on the non-hd channel. Last few weeks the episodes keeps freezing. Someone told me it occured on both channels, but i caught a little of it at work on a non-hd channel and it was fine, then i watched on my dvr in hd and it did the same thing.

Holy moly, that felt like the longest break-up ever on TV.

It was kinda funny to see Dean Cain and Tom Welling mix it up on-screen, though Dean Cain's acting was a little hammy.

Lana is definitely up to something, but is it really Lana?

Has Lex really turned a new leaf, but gets misunderstood because of the baggage of his past won't let people see his turn for the better?

Kara and Redeyes need to get a room, or something.

So is "knox" supposed to be Vandal Savage?

EDIT: I guess he's loosely based on him.

This Martian Manhunter knowing Jor-El/Kara's family thing just doesn't work for me....

I fully agree with that. Even if you ignore the comic history (which one, take your pick! ) it just seems too weird for Mars and Krypton to have had any interaction. Overall, I'm just not into how they're handling Kara/Supergirl anyway.

Didn't Jimmy move away last season to take some photography job? Or am I remembering that episode wrong?

For someone who hasn't been around too long, she seems too familiar with things going on around her (except for using chopsticks).

Still with all the (minor) gripes, I'd say this show is definitely more back on track than it has been in a long time. Admittedly good/great episode which has me anxiously anticipating next week!!!!

I understood why the ending happened. But I hope it's not going to end up as Clark/Lana season 2-4 type of deal.

good episode. the whole clark/lana lying thing is starting to drag on, but hopefully it will pick up a little. her spying on lex was entertaining though.

the extremely long breakup saw that coming a mile away. yes, it does seem to me also that chloe is looking a little rougher this season.

Forgive this silly question, but understand that I'm barely giving a shit about the Lana and Lois characters in this Superman show....

But are we talking more than one Lana? Is one a clone and was that a reveal? I know she used a dead(?) clone to fake her death, but did she activate one or more?

I think that's unkown. Would make for an interesting plot line.

How many Red and Blue combo outfits does Clark actually have and why doesn't anyone else realize that he has been wearing the same thing for 6 years?

Another bra shot of Chloe this week. It's becoming a common occurance and i for one am not going to complain.

Pretty decent episode. Seems like they're doing there FOTW episodes much better this year.

I thought it was a good episode, with the exception of the final scene.

Yep, I'm having the same issue.

As for the break-up, I think she should have told Jimmy about being a Meteor freak. It could have made for some great scenes down the line. I think they took the easy way out.

Decent episode. Not great, not bad. Is this our "movie ripoff" of the year already? I was waiting for Knox to have his head removed.

Mostly liked it, except for the infinitely too long break-up scene. Ugh. MM being tuned in to Kryptonian history is very strange, but hopefully leading somewhere interesting. I can definitely handle Lana better when she's not with Lex and she and Clark aren't pining away for each other.

I wouldn't complain were it not for the fact that chloe seems to have aged 15 years over the summer break and her once youthful, perky and cherubic visage has now become a bucket of smashed assholes.
