"Clark Kent is dead. Goodbye Chloe." Wow...this was a powerful episode/finale. I so love this mature, sometimes dark, Clark Kent. Someone said he's too serious, but the portrayal is that of someone trying to come to grips with saving people's lives...and he takes this very seriously. Perhaps it's not in keeping with the Superman comic in that it isn't light-hearted all the time...but this series has so much drama...how can you not love it. It allows us to feel every kind of emotion possible...and all of this in a single episode. It's genius how they are able to deal with so many characters and tie them all together in a coherent way. Thanks for another great episode.
edited 9 Feb 2011: Just saw this again and that final scene is one of my favorites of the series. Tom Welling does a great job portraying a Clark Kent that has turned away from believing in humanity...or rather in his own humanity. That final scene never stops moving me in the loss of hope portrayed by Chloe and Clark. I love this series....
