My Lana is a much stronger character. She's a cheerleader at the start of the series who's taking fashion and economics and plans on starting her own fashion company when she graduates.

I would have just like to have seen Lana a regular girl who Clark could never be with because they are so different and it hurts her more than it hurts him...unlike Smallville where she is the most powerful being on the planet and has Clark's balls in a vice grip.

Yeah they just completely mis-wrote Lana in Smallville (ducks from when Othello replies). Lana is a normal girl, she's been best friends with Clark and Pete since their first day in kindergarten but has ambitions of her own. Her interest in business gains the interesting attention of Lex.

Re: Smallville: 10x07 "Ambush" - Discussion and Spoilers

I liked it how they suggested that Clark was brainwashed into loving Lana.

What do you mean you didn't notice?

Clark is invulnerable. He barely (by some definitions of his powerset.) gets most any stimulation from world around him, but literature and movies have convinced him that when he is in love that he will feel butterflies in his tummy and go weak at the knees.

Clark mistook Kryptonite poisoning for love because of Lana's pendant.

He just misunderstood what was stimulating him where that Clark couldn't tell the difference between "love" and a near death experience no matter how often it happened.

Following this reasoning, all that brawling against meteor freaks and run ins with meteors most probably left him randy and sexed up.

Re: Smallville: 10x07 "Ambush" - Discussion and Spoilers

That's an interesting take. It works within the context of how they wrote Lana/Clark in Smallville as well.

Re: Smallville: 10x07 "Ambush" - Discussion and Spoilers

Yeah Lana over the last ten or fifteen years has not been...how should we say it...pretty clear about her feelings for Clark. Her son with Pete is even named Clark. She took over as LexCorp CEO for a while before being fired by a hologram of Lex for having sympathetic feelings towards Superman. Until her recent infection by the Insect Queen, Lana was mentor to Kara and rooming with her.

Re: Smallville: 10x07 "Ambush" - Discussion and Spoilers

How shallow is it to date a hero...think QB home town hero....very...a person on the outside who does what they got to do and doesn't worry about what people think is more appealing than a flash in the pan whomever... at least to a character like Lana and even Lois...these are gals who want depth in a man...at least from my point of view...I mean falling for a celeb is too easy and boring.

Still better than enlisting her with the Manhunters.

If Lois and Clark get engaged and later marry within S10...what would you think?...this is in the speculation...personally I think it would be ridiculous...however this is Smallville.

I think it'd be ridiculous. You know I wouldn't put another flash forward type deal past them for the finale. Especially if it's a two hour finale.

Re: Smallville: 10x07 "Ambush" - Discussion and Spoilers

It's the final episode. The most obvious thing they could do is to set the final episode 5 years in the future and then have a series of flash backs to tell us what happened 5 minutes after the previous weeks episode.

seen it done a dozen times.

Re: Smallville: 10x07 "Ambush" - Discussion and Spoilers

Same which is why I'd not be surprised if Brian and Kelly wrote a number of flash forward scenes for the finale. Maybe the first hour takes place present time or something then they flash forward to whenever say 2012 or something like that and show us what happened.

In my alternate Smallville as I've stated before it ends with Lex's return from a mysterious hiatus and retaining the knowledge of who Clark is. He has chosen to keep this knowledge for his own means which I might explore further in a proper sequel.

^ Dude we still have more than half a season to go. I'm sure all of those concerns will be addressed. I wouldn't freak out too much.
Hey no worries, I am not freaking out. LOL! Just speculating what the writers are planning. Seems from other posts most of us are on a similar page.

On the relationship between Clark and Lois, my personal feelings of her knowing this early in their lives aside, its more an issue of how fast they progressed within the season. They are not even half way into it. Seems a natural that some melodrama is coming to delay an engagement or wedding until later in the year.

On flash-forwards, maybe... But so much already has happened to Clark before he puts on the suit, stuff that usually happens once he is a fully realized Superman. Lois discovering his identity, meeting and defeating most of his main enemies. There might not be much need for that.
