I just watched the recent episode and was disappointed because it was clear from the start that someone would turn back time and change everything back to the beginning.
I mean, how cheesy was the scene where the old man approached Clark on the street and this little boy asked for his autograph?
When I read about this episode I hoped that he would only come up with his identity as Superman but the moment he chose to go public as "Clark Kent the alien from Krypton" you knew that you could basically forget everything that happens because in the end it won't matter anyway.
and even though this episode had some really nice clark and lois moments, the point where he just used the Legion ring (ignoring what Lois was telling him!!!) just destroyed it all.
I have to admit that even though i really wanted Clark to get that coffee with Lois I think they created a nice sad atmosphere for the very last scene.
but after we waited so long for smallville to come back I would have expected more.
especially some REAL progress for CLOIS.
