Arctic Was The Right Name For This One.... (Season Finale Rant)  
It most certainly left me chilled. There were good moments: Chloe, Chloe, Jimmy's proposal to Chloe (and where the F&^% did that come from? Lovelovelove, but still? You should have seen my face! "Jimmy, what are you...OhMaGah!"), Ding-dong the Lana's gone!!!!!, and, of course, the fore-shadowing Clois hug (tell me again that you're not already half in love with him, girl, and I'll still not believe it. Two episodes in the last three weeks kill that dead.

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*

I cannot remain spoiler free for Smallville. I JUST CAN'T! I love reading everyone's thoughts on the ep. Yours have been the most enlightening so far. :D

Also as for Allison Mack, it was rumored she signed a contract to return as a series regular yesterday.

I absolute LOVE that Lana is gone. But hate sappiness attached.
Lois: SV Lana Wickedkalalanekent on May 16th, 2008 05:51 pm (UTC)
*sags with the relief* THANK GOD! She had us all pretty damn worried. I hope it's true. I really do. It wouldn't be the same without Chloe.

And I am, too. *waves Mr. Pointy at her again, reassuring the little twit the race is NOT over* I promise you, the goodbye vid will make you want to gag. It's just... *shudders* I'd post the video, but I don't want to spoil you too bad.

I hope it's only a guest spot or two for a minute and a half next season. I want us to see her happy and then she goes away.

Spoiled?

Season 7 hasn't even started in England, we don't get it til July. I've been catching bits and pieces here and there but I like being Smallville spoiled. That way I can plan which episodes I want to watch. 7x18 Apocalypse anyone? :P

Was it really that terrible?
Lois: SV Lana Wickedkalalanekent on May 16th, 2008 05:59 pm (UTC)
More like infuriatingly annoying, as always, with her:

Rae: Jackinpainautumnrae89 on May 16th, 2008 08:08 pm (UTC)
Uh. Well when I watched this I managed to pause on Lana's face when it was in teh weirdest look. PMSL though...

Not sure about TW's face in this. Watch there are times when he is REALLY upset and then...not.

BUT THE HUG OF AWESOMENESS!
Lois: SV Lana Wickedkalalanekent on May 19th, 2008 01:45 am (UTC)
The HUG really did somewhat cancel out the awfulness if the icky. *shudders* I must honestly say I'm looking forward to next season. FLY THIS TIME, CLARK!

I hear you, that speech on the tape made me want to strangle her. As if he wasn't dealing with enough guilt, she laid all that 'you'll never know how much'! If he doesn't know after seven years, then yes, he will never know! *argh* Just poorly written scene!
Rae: SRSLYautumnrae89 on May 16th, 2008 08:09 pm (UTC)
I know. I just wanted to strangle her too! And her 'Don't come after me.' ARRRRRRGH! NO HE WON'T. Because the Cloisers will tie him down and you will NEVER see him again.
Lois: SV Clark BDAkalalanekent on May 19th, 2008 01:46 am (UTC)
Yes, yes we will. *goes to get the rope now*
