I think it was important for Clark to make that decision on his own and to stop looking at Lana like she was his perfect fairy-tale princess.
Agreed. Hopefully, we won't see a return of 'Doucheville-Clark' and this storyline will firmly cement the end of the Clana relationship.
Then again, part of me worries that when he sees Lana, he'll get that dopey look on his face and be like 'Lois who?"
I pray I'm wrong.
