It was nice to see Pete again, and his instincts about Lionel are probably right. I don’t care how much of a ‘Vessel of Jor-El’ Lionel is, I still don’t trust him.
Wow, Lex was licking his chops at the end when Kara foolishly asked to live with him. He’s using the same charm on her that he used on Clark so long ago. The sad thing is, the charm back then was genuine. This time it’s pure manipulation, though in his own twisted way, Lex cares for Kara, and still cares for Clark. Unfortunately, he’s become his father, what he dreaded all along. Capable of love, but in a twisted, selfish way. And hurting other people as he goes along.
Kryptonite-laced gum? Kinda lame, folks. I did like Jimmy’s involvement in this story, and his desire to start things up with Chloe again. I’m sure I’m in the minority on that, but what else is new? ;) I am exhausted by Lana and Clark’s off-again, on-again relationship, but Chloe/Jimmy are more delightful than exhausting, at least to me.
I see they prevaricated on the previews for this week. The previews of Clark in a cage is for next week. I really wish that networks would give us the previews meant for the proper episode. It’s lame and weaselly, just like the new owners of LJ.
