Re: Smallville 8x05 "Committed" - Discuss/Grade <SPOILERS>

Well, she is living in his house, and probably sleeping in his bed and drinking his scotch... So that kind of makes sense, but leaving her as second to the running of the company takes 12 seconds for a change over of power... Meanwhile Lex's personal wealth and property would be tied up in probate for quite the duration not that all of Lionel's illegitimate offspring weren't clawing at the idea of a free meal... What happened to that half brother from season on/two?

I don't doubt that's what you heard because it might have been what they said but the diffence between what's concieveable and what you say is true, is probably a misplaced comma. And that's Exactly what got Ed fired and practicing law out of a bowling alley.

Re: Smallville 8x05 "Committed" - Discuss/Grade <SPOILERS>

I rewatched the first two episodes of season 8.

“Tess Mercer. My access is unrestricted. Per Lex’s written instructions I am now the acting CEO of Lex Corp and all it’s subsidiaries.”

Out of the gate, after a remark about penguins or some hodgepodge about the cold she said the above. Although according to the working theory that Lex isn’t dead, then no one can have been willed any of Luthor’s personal assets… O, they could be secretly married? Not a marriage of love mind you, but as a tool to afford Tess immediate power to work in his interest if something happened to the boy billionaire?

Y’know with Arthur already on the scene, a Lori Lemars story doesn’t seem outside the world of possibility considering AC has no idea about his legacy or destiny as the King of Atlantis which humorously enough should make him quickly infinitely more wealthy than Olvier’s + Luthor’s fortunes combined. Lets not forget the army. Thousands of superhuman fishmen willing to die and kill on his whim.

I was reading an old Adventures of Superman comic recently, and I had no idea that Lori was Telepathic. Well I suppose (comics) Aquaman is too, but there are dozens of notable undersea kingdoms supporting a wide variety of branches of homomermanus subspecies… But she seemed to use telepathy as a primary method of communication with no concern for the privacy of mundanes. It’s be that little teep kid all over again, and a love triangle all over again, except this time Clark loses.

Is it my imagination or is Tess’ new gaggle of Superfriends going to be called “The Justice League” before Olivers group actually patents the rights?

Tess is becoming annoying. Barking orders at your staff and threatening to fire them if they don't meet your ridiculously high expectations ("find the crystal or find a new line of work!") is no way to run a business. Does anyone think that Bill Gates became a billionaire by randomly firing staff ?
Actually, a little off topic, I've had several bosses like her who do do that.
Yeah, but how many of your bosses became billionaires?

Mind you, she became a billionaire through some kind bizarro inheritance scheme... Even so, Lex should have taught her something besides barking.
Lex wasn't the greatest boss in the world either, but at least he was a somewhat multi-dimensional character. Tess is like David Moyes, she has two emotions - angry and about to be angry. (The Brits here will know what I mean)

Lana or Doctor bitch that crashed his pane into the middle of the ocean?

I wouldn't mind the return of the British airess lex sent to the poorhouse in seaon one... Y'Know if someone was intent on revenging on the bald bugger.

I really don't think lesbians mean the maverick ratings they used to because it's less a peverse fetish and more every day Joe sixpack and hockey mom regularity.
