If that wasn't bad enough, Clark needs to learn (again) that he isn't God, he shouldn't be controlling people's lives, they have a right to make their own decisions even if he disagrees, and Chloe doesn't betray him by having other relationships that include loyalty.
Even the Christopher Reeve "Superman," at his best, never seemed to learn that lesson. I haven't really been keeping up with Season 8 all that much. From the sound of things, it would seem that I haven't missed too terribly much. As much as I love Lana (and, aside from Othello
, I seem to be one of the few on this board who do), I agree that her story arc would have been better served being left as it was at the end of Season 7. Hell, I'll do you one better and say that it would have been ideal for her to leave as she did at the end of Season 6, with her faked demise in the car explosion.
