Now, the bad.
Lex at the Fortress was cool, to be sure, but that's mess number one to fix next year. I don't even have to go into the issues and canon destruction that causes.
Mess number two? What the heck are we going to do about the Chloe gacked by the FBI if Allison doesn't come home (and they had better pay her whatever she wants!)? That's one hell of a dangling plot point to me. Not to mention what it will do to Jimmy. And wasn't that a hell of a lot they put the poor girl through this episode?
A minor annoyance, but an annoyance just the same: Why is Lois taking Chloe's open spot so well? I understand that it is canon for him to be at the paper, and we can forget about the twelve-years tutalege since we've been doing that on and off for over two seasons now, but how does that make her look? If this is AlMiles yet again trying to muck up her character.... *takes a deep breath* That just really bothered me, especially in light of Chloe coming in during the conversation and Lois just taking off. That looks bad.
Major annoyance: Damn you, AlMiles, for pulling the same Lana crap as always. The Lana fans have been determined for a noble send-off of their beloved 'soul-mate' pairing. *goes to find Mr. Pointy from his storage (where did those icons go? The ones of the hand stab? We must find them again!)* Well, congrads, kiddies! Although the Mayor of Whineville did it in a video instead of face-to-face, she acknowledged that his 'destiny was far great than hers' and she' had to step aside'. Not only that, we get the 'never meant to be and we know that' and the teeth-grinding annoynace that is 'I love you...more than you will ever know'. *capslock!screams of rage*
WOULD YOU JUST GO ALREADY?! YOU'RE NOT TELLING US ANYTHING WE DIDN'T KNOW TWO SEASONS AGO!
*rips out every strand of her perfect hair out of her perfect head* See, this is why I hate this character. She just kills me. "Please don't come after me, huh?" I'll come after you! *picks up Mr. Pointy and races off to the right* You better hide AlMiles, too, Lana! 'Cause I'm after them, too.
*sticks head back in long enough to finish her entry* In summary, though? Interesting final scene, full of drama, but there's going to be more than the Fortress to clean up next season. Here's hoping all of us will be back.
'CAUSE WE KNOW THAT ALMILES WON'T BE!!! COME ON, LANA! LET'S RACE! *off and running with Mr. Pointy again*
