Smallville 9x06: Crossfire (AKA: In Which SV Wins The Free Freaking World!!!)  



FR SRS?!?!?!?

When was the last time that SV OWNED an entire episode? I mean, seriously? Every plotline tonight made me scream my head off with the sheer force of its awesome! How long has it been since we could say that? The canon, it was mighty! And the canon being made for SV as we speak? Irresistible!

Have I mentioned yet how thrilled I am to have our snarky, sunny Ollie back? An Ollie who's determined to make a difference in the world? Other than making the fangirls squirm with glee over his lack of shirt? (Yes, I am aware that this could be his only reason for existing for some of you, but still...) And I love watching him seek out a quest to keep him focused and that's just what Mia will be. I already love the girl; a little thing with so much fight in her and a troubled past? Fun times ahead, I see. This is going to be a fun ride.

Oh, Zod. Zod, Zod, Zod. You really have no clue of the enemy you're making, do you? You thought you were so smart, crashing her presentation in front of the shareholders and then having the conceited notion that Kandorians are so high above humans? That's quite hilarious, since she took care of your little goon all by her little red-headed self. After that ending scene at the cafe, showing just how he underestimated our favorite villainess and just how much of a force to be reckoned this little human is, I have to agree with Anissa; I'm more than a little mad for her, too. I think we're going to have fun watching the Waltz of Treachery these two will be dancing the rest of the year.

Catherine, huh? It was SOOO good to see them go with a gentler Cat Grant. It really amazes me just how much this version looks and sounds like I imaged my Cat would have at this age. *LOL* Thank you, SV, for making her a LOT better than the L&C version and the comics one. I looove you! I knew she was going to beat them out for the position. Canon; sweet, sweet canon. I would love to see her again, especially if they don't wreck her personality in this version. I always felt a little sorry for what the writers did to her.

And Chloe, OMFG! CHLOE!!! Where the hell have you been? How long has it been since you acted like the character you are meant to be? Why the hell does she have to have to be Chlois when she's all too awesome just by being herself? I'm trying to remember the last time she looked like she was having as much fun as she did when she and Stuart were sparring behind firewalls! She was having a great time and this is the most brilliantly alive I've seen her since mid-season last year. Hmmm... I wonder if this guy is who the spoilers where pointing to? :D I could see it. Another plotline that may to prove to be a lot of fun.

Awww! The final closure of the Lollie hurt to watch, what with Ollie being so open with her and with all he's overcome, but I love that they seem to be playing this without the angst. I love them as friends. It makes me think of why my Lois and Richard have such a great relationship. They know each other so well and are totally capable of call each other on their bullshit. And this way, they never have to lose each other. The Lollie is dead; long live the Lollie.

Yes, I deliberately left the Clois for last. I'm not even sure if I have the language skills to tell you just how in love I am at this moment. I'll have a heart-attack if I freak out over it one more time. From the canon newscaster position from the 70s, to the barbs about the Clois' dating history, to watching poor Clark struggle with his feelings throughout the episode to the moment when Ollie and Lois discuss Lois' feelings for Clark in a way that made it clear once and for all that she's sure how she feels. And when Chloe finally told him baldface to stop thinking of everyone else for once, it did my heart SOO much good to see where he headed next.

And that kiss! Now THAT was a kiss to wait five seasons for!

Video made by shalala_go_rawr , who is totally my hero!

Literally swooned and bawled while it was happening. THIS is what we're been waiting for.

There are so many individual moments for them this time around that I'd be all night detailing them. :D Needless to say, it can only get better.</div>

And that's when you know it's good: when my Big Sister can come up for air long enough to watch SV and comment!

*snuggles you tight and offers Starbucks* How are you managing, darling? Head above water? I miss you like mad around here!

Awww! I know the feeling! Any job interacting with the public is just soul-draining these days. And BWAHAHA! on the kids with the gourd; sounds like me, Tiff, and April back in the day!

You are welcome, darling! And I would, but I have no cellphone to easily update with. Not only that, but I have a hell of a time keeping up with LJ even lately. I just need to work it out on how to follow your twitter and not really use mine.

So much love for this episode! =) CLOIS LIVES!!!

It was hard for me with the Lollie cause i thought they were a great couple. I just wish it lasted longer when they were together, enough so she didn't wast time with that dumb Grant Gabriel plot..Ugh

but yes it's time for clois now! So bring it on!

I think they should start flirting with Black Canary and Ollie! =) I dig canon!

Lollie really was a nice little distraction and played just the slightest to the Brois fans (she and Ollie were never involved in the comics or any other medium), but I did like them. They have each other numbers and have no issue calling each other on their BS. Lois actually needs that. And they forced one another to grow up, which they both needed. And I'm thrilled to death that they're still going to be friends. They need it.

And I think they'll play the Dinah card in time, but it'll be the end of the season before it happens. I'd love to see it. Goodness knows I'm a canon girl for the Superman fandom. ;)

I think this ep might actually get me reading and writing SV fic again! \O/ My gods, the EPIC AWESOME! Cat Grant, Mia Dearden, a decent end to Lollie, Ollie and Chloe being equally made of awesome, THE KISS!! XD Best episode in a long, LONG time.

The music video thing at the end, Mercy vs Zod: Round One, Chloe/Stuart and Chloe being happy as Watchtower, and of course the Clois all made me incredibly happy. *twirls*
Lois: Clois :: Never Alonekalalanekent on November 8th, 2009 10:49 pm (UTC)

I gotta say, though. I really loved this week, too! Is it just me or is SV just trying to seduce us these days?

And am I remiss in saying that suits all of the Clois fans just fine? ;)

*poke poke* Where are you?

I'm good! Got distracted from life and livejournal because I was having my baby! :-) Glad to be back, however!
Lois: Lois :: Smokingkalalanekent on November 9th, 2009 04:12 pm (UTC)
I feel you on RL being crazy! I'm amazed I'm keeping my head above water these days!

Okay, so dish! :D How did things go with the baby? It's been so long now that I can't even remember if it was a boy or girl! Brag, Mommy, brag! :D

Things went well with the baby. She came out perfect! :-) Her name is Zoe Cassandra Stephens and she's just over 7 weeks old now. She's a pretty good baby, too. Not too fussy! I went back to work on Monday. That was fun! I missed her so much!

Okay, that last anonymous comment was me. LOL
