Really? I would say the same about the Clark and Lana part.

I'm hoping they continue there string of good episodes but mentioning Lana in the synopsis sort of makes me think that's not going to happen.

I heard Kristin Kreuk is currently in Thailand filming the new Street Fighter movie. I wonder if she will be in any of these remaining episodes.

Another mediocre episode following a good one (as is always the case). The main story seemed pointless, but the tiny subplot was a good set up.

They could have saved everyone the trouble of this Bond, James Bond episode by just taking the last few minutes of the satellite telescope shots discussion and putting it in next week's episode.

That and 'Lex doesn't matter right now'. Yeah Clark, he's only close to finding out your secret, but don't worry or anything! Maybe he'll murder another hundred people or so until you actually give a shit.

So much for Clark growing up last week.

WGN pre-empted this with the White Sox-Yankees game, so my DVR only picked up the first 5 minutes. Crapola. Doesn't sound like I missed much though

To make matters worse, did anyone notice what was sitting on the table next to the two phones when Jimmy was cloning stuff off of Chloe's? That's right kids! A packet of Stride gum!!!! As if we needed a reminder of that damn episode after last week almost cleansed it from our memories....

So Lex is about to discover your secret and by the way your cousin has been abducted by Braniac who has tried to kill you on several occasions but only Lana matters?

I also like how Jimmy or anybody else hasn't asked where Kara is. Of course, she's been away from Smallville more than she's been in Smallville so I guess we know why they wouldn't ask.

Tom Welling must be preparing for the upcoming episode he is directing. He has barely been in the last two episodes.
Loved the dancing scene but the rest was just so-so.

I almost turned off the episode when Chloe and Clark were having their first conversation. Forget that the Jimmy plot sucked, but you have a forced conversation from your actors that contracdicts the ending to perhaps your best episode to date?!

Way to go writers!!...

Leave it to Lex to pull the episode back from the dregs. Wonder if the banker was working for the former 4.

They better not use timetravel as a massive "reset" button.

I used to be in the habit of watching previews all the time (regardless of show), but I stopped years ago for the most part.

However, since I found this episode so bad I felt the need to watch the preview for this week. Wow does the episode not only look good, but potentially epic! If the last 3 are the same as the previous week then I'd have wished they just dropped this episode and used the Lex pieces at the end of the Lionel episode or in this weeks'.
