Thank you writers of Smallville for finally getting rid of the irritating Lana Lang, the one thing that has annoyed me season in and season out from the first to latest episode is the constant 'will they, wont they' dynamic surrounding Clark and Lana. Clark would have to be an alien to have not given up on that relationship earlier. Thank god that's over. Now we just need to wait out his pining. Lets hope he gets all angry and actually does some damage to Brainiac. I miss the mindless violence this show once had.
