It really didn't need explaining. A lot of personal computers come equipped with cameras these days and DVD burners are pretty common and cheap. My iMac has it all built-in right off the shelf, software and all, and it is three years old. It didn't stretch my imagination to think that there was a computer there at the asylum somewhere that was able to do the same. Hardly a "huge 'wtf' moment". For me it was more of a "She's gone! She's gone! Ya-hooo! She's finally gone!" moment. Particularly with Lois walking in right after Clark first watched it and he fell right into her arms.
Okay, yeah, I get you. Even still. The fact that she woke from a coma and with the implication that she woke, made a video, and completely high tailed it out of town within a day's time really stretched credibility. Then again, I thought, "Hey, this is Smallville. Run with it."

Really though if Lex was working on a super "suit" shouldn't it be green and purple?
Haha! I totally was thinking the same thing!

I will say the retcon explaination of what happened to Lana over the last seven months was pretty interesting but as I stated in another post totally unneccessary. The way things ended last season with Lana leaving Smallville to go do her own thing and leaving Clark her infamous breakup video was great. I have found it amusing that they've forced all these new martial arts moves on Lana thanks to Kristen's role in Street Fighter. I wonder if that was one of the stipulations of her even agreeing to do do more episodes was them "promoting" or hinting at Street Fighter. Certinally Smallville fans would be aware of her role as Chung Li.
I just thought it was more of the random Lana-Fu we've seen over the past 8 years.

I've been a big proponent of the series ending this season as well. I'm curious if CW will give them a ninth season and what their plans will be. I assume that Doomsday will be dealt with at the end of the season. Unless they do a 24 and suddenly introduce another plot which would be meaningless. Didn't I read somewhere a few that Tom was in neotigations for a ninth season?
Kryptonsite has reported that a ninth season is all, but a done deal. I'm guessing there will be an announcement one way or another within the next few weeks.
