As much as I hate Lana, I must say:

Best. Proposal. Ever.​

:)

Also, bringing Lana back was the worst tease ever. I had actually given a small cheer when she got T-boned.

The only thing that could have made me more upset was if they then ended up killing Chloe instead of Pa Kent.

Between the crush-coal-into-a-diamond-thing and the "did you spin the earth backwards on it's axis?" line, I thought they were getting way to heavy-handed with the movie references. Then I realized that the bulk of the Smallville demographic probably never saw the movies and probably weren't even alive when they were in theaters. Then I feld depressed and old. :(

"I won't let her leave my side". Yeah, great job Chloe! :up: Although I think that she secretly was hoping that Lana would die again... the look on her face when Clark told her he proposed (and the look in the previous episode when he said "I just lover her so much") spoke volumes as to the fact that she's still heartbroken over him. I wish I could be there to comfort her. :D

Wow, I tried not to read too deeply into the spoiler/speculation thread, but most of the guesses were pretty much right on.

After seeing James Blunt's music video to "You're Beautiful" two or three times this week, I was thinking he looked a little like Clark, but they way they used the song's lyric "but I will never be with you" was inspired in both time lines.

busyba - WORD.

On every one of your points.

WTH was up with lois and the water and the toaster? Completely random nonTragedy.

What was in the picture Lionel showed Jonathan? Him in a compromising position with the cows?

They had it backward. He should've saved Jonathan and let Lana die. And we would've had a great setup for the Clark-Lex enmity in the future. And Clark would have thought long and hard before revealing his secret to anyone again. Especially Lois.

But no. :(

Seriously, is Martha going to run that farm all by herself now? It was unbelievable how Jonathan somehow managed to keep it afloat without any help or any insurance (since he would've been blackballed by the insurance industry after the 10th truck was destroyed). Now it's going to be even harder to take. Unless Lionel puts the moves on her again. Won't that be fun? :rolleyes:

Chloe's got to die before the series ends, as well. That way, Lois will take up her mantle as a reporter, and Clark will REALLY think long and hard before telling anyone else his secret.

I was hoping it wouldn't be, but knew it had to be.....Jonathon. Dad Kent. So sad.

I was cheering when Lana bit it. I so don't like her. Oh well. Sigh.

I liked the 'spin the world on its axis' reference, because I DID see the movie and I DID read the comics....so as old as I am, it was still nice to hear. And because of the movies and the original comics, thats how I knew it would be him.

Interesting - in the first run thru, when Lana dies, Jonathon in the truck stops to hold Clark back and never meets up with Lionel. Wonder what happens to that whole line after that? Do they just meet later? Does Lionel drop the blackmail?

Also, interesting how the shadows at the grave are there - Lana and Clark, Mrs Kent and Lionel coming up behind her.....

The most important question is:

What the hell was up with those pictures of a dead Jonathan in the fortress that I found on some French website? Damn French got me again! I wonder if they were shot as red herrings or that they will be used in a flashback during a future episode? Damn I was so happy to see Lana in a pool of blood. Was it just me or were there some very abrupt edits in this episode? Would it have killed them to let Lois's t-shirt get wet when she was on the floor in all the water?

In the first timeline lois almost fell off of a stool but lana grabbed her...in the second timeline I'm assuming she fell into that table behind her with that water she kept asking lana about.

I'm assuming the picture is a spaceship or maybe clark as a baby coming out of the spaceship? I think lionel help falsify Clark's adoption papers so he may have dug deeper.

In the first timeline, because Clark proposed, Lana was there to catch Lois before she fell.

Me too. That was practically porn for me. :D

Then who decorated the Talon?

You know - this episode was a big middle finger to people who watch it. First the Lana death tease, a flight, 'dead' Lois so Chloe could assume her name, some real conflict between Clark and Lex, classic Chloe comment of Clark coming out of the closet...then *Poof* it's all gone.

Yeah plus if the first timeline had remained I'm pretty sure Lex saw Clark run in at the last second, would have been a great push to kick off the battle between them.

He absolutely saw. That was a far bigger shock to me than the accident. That was a total "HFC!!!" moment for me.

There were so many hints about a reset button.

Lex Seeing Clark
The Obvious Events at The Planet (Your Fired, Flower Girl, and Wrong Number)

I thought it was a great episode, sucks to see Bo Duke bite it though.

I was waiting for Stephen Tobolowsky to walk up to Clark and shout "BING!" ;)

WORST. EPISODE. EVER!!!!

What a letdown. I specifically avoided spoilers about this episode and didn't have any idea or even any preconceived notions about who was going to bite it. I was really hoping they'd turn the mythology on its ear and not have Jonathan bite it, but have Lana die and have it be Lex's fault so that would always be the issue between he and Clark. At the halfway point, I thought I was going to get my wish, but the second it reset, I knew it was Pa. Lana Lang is my most hated character in all of TV and I actually got to see her dead and then it turned out to be just a ruse.

The ep was extremely well done and I liked the way the did the story and everything, but man am I pissed right now. What a freakin' waste. Pa Kent was ten times the character that Lana is.

Well it ended the way it probably had to. Pa Kent dying and Lana breaking things off with Clark and not knowing his secret. So any bets on whether kryptonite infected zombie Jonathan Kent shows up eventually?

Lana had to die, even if briefly. As I watched the proposal, reveal, trip to the fortress, winning the election, too many things were "perfect". The first 10 mins I kept waiting for the alarm to go off and Clark wake up. If it had been a little less perfect I wouldn't have been expecting the big reset from minute two.

I think the Lois almost falling was part of the tease. Someone is going to die, so lets see how many times we can fake out the audience.

Most people have assumed that Pa Kent was going to kick sometime. If someone were taking odds a few years ago only a small percentage would have expected him to last this long. So the first half of the show was just to jerk us around. They might as well have just had Lana come walking out of the shower and have it all be a dream.
