Smallville episode 100 (spoilers)
Today's New York Post had a small blurb about it, and I was quite interested to see what happened. Something between Clark and Lana? And Clark loses someone close?
After the first part, and those of you who saw the episode know what I mean, I thought, "WOW!" It was my first guess as to what would happen, but it also seemed so obvious that, nah, the writers couldn't possibly do that. Yet that's precisely what they did...and yet not what they did. "Smallville" meets "Groundhog Day," in a way.
I was shocked when Clark used his powers to run there. He knew Lex saw him, but Clark no longer cared. It no longer mattered that anyone knew his secret.
Small update: guessing that that person dying would be almost a cliche, my guess all along as to who would die turned out to be correct. But the first part fooled me.
It dragged a bit at the end and certainly heaped on the schmaltz, but overall it was very enjoyable. The acting wasn't as overdone as it could have been, which is a credit to them all.
One question, though. Never having thrown liquor into a fire, would throwing a glass of whiskey into a fireplace really make a bit of a flame for a second?
