Well it seems like the past couple of weeks has dragged into what feels like months while waiting for a new episode of Smallville. The past couple episodes are obviously building to the season finale. There appears to be so much left in the background that appears to be left unnoticed, it would appear that Lex is actually dead, however I don't beleive for a second that he truly is ... Doomsday living in Chloes' basement could definately prove to be somewhat of a hurdle and that secret won't stay hidden long. I understand why the writers decided to throw in the Kryptonite funny money and it really does add some flow to the plotline. Lois is standing above the skylight looking down on Clark and Jimmy and he not been weakened ... Lois would definately have gotten her front page news and Clarkes' secret would end up as public knowledge. This story for me seemed to add some perspective to Lois' character as she gets a taste for heroism. She also in some ways gains a much deeper appreciation for what it is that Clark does as the RED BLUE BLUR. Kara seems to be keeping a low profile at the moment and with time running out for this season... I really would like to know just how Clark is going to assume his identity with the glasses... kinda hoping to see him fly as well. I don't believe that he is at this time unable to fly, I just don't think he has really thought about doing it or had a real desire to for that matter. All in all I have to say that I really feel the chemistry Lois and Clark have together is strong and getting stronger all the time.
Stiletto was an enjoyable episode and not dissappointing. I think this is a stepping stone needed to bridge the fans to bigger and bluer things.
I look forward to the rest of the season and hope desperately that this will not be the finale season.
