Clark Kent Meme - Lucy, Onyx, Spirit


I never much cared for Lucy.  But I can't help thinking that this episode was just done at the wrong time for the Lois character.  We just needed to know Lois a bit better before we got a sister.  And I also can't help but think that its really past time for some of Lois' family to make another appearance.

Onyx is a fun episode.  MR had such a blast with it.

And I love Spirit.  Its an episode that always makes me laugh.  I'm just sorry that JS never got to do a version of Dawn, LOL  And yes, I even love the Clana dance at the end, and I don't think it came out of nowhere, and I don't understand the whole idea that it wasn't earned.  I also don't think Clark owed that dance to Chloe.  Sorry.


I love this shot so much, I made an icon out of it.

I think the introduction of Lucy was to get to know Lois better..it showed Clark a more caring willing to do anything for her family side he hadn't seen before and the end Clois scene was just perfection!

I think you're probably right. But I don't think it quite worked. Though the last scene between Clark and Lois is very nice, which is why I included it. :)

The last Clois scene in Lucy is the best scene in the ep, which is why I include my blend from it.

I must've argued the prom scene in Spirit about 20 times. Bottom line for me, I don't think Clark, Lana or Lois did anything wrong. And I understand why Chloe felt badly, but by that time she had to know that Clark wasn't interested in her like that, that he was still interested in Lana, and she's really responsible for her own fun at the prom. Not Lois, or Clark.

Not to mention that we only saw 1 dance. I have no problem wanking that there was still fun to be had for Clark, Lana, Lois and Chloe, and more dancing to be done.

Great choices Valerie:)

I think the episode about Lois's sister happened too soon too and would have been better placed farther along. I did like what it revealed about what makes Lois tick but I never liked Lucy on SV either. I am a bit lost as to why they have never brought The General on at some point again. Michael Ironside is amazing but a very busy actor but we should have seen him on SV again by now or heard mention of the General at least. SV continuity again I guess...

CLANA dance...totally expected IMO and not out of no where even though of course as a CLOISer I was yelling at the TV dance with Lois but THAT would have been out of left field at that point in their relationship. As for Chloe....I think they dragged on the Chloe aspect of the triangle too long IMO.

I think it might be hard for them to get Ironside!, even though he enjoyed working on the show (and loved Tom like Whoa!). But yeah, can we at least hear something about him? Where he is? And Lucy too?

But SV has this problem with all its characters. It really does knock the writing down a few notches that they employ this "out-of-sight-out-of-mind" philosophy.

I think Spirit set up right from the beginning of the episode that this whole prom thing had stirred up Clana feelings, and they were both thinking about each other. So, when she walks in at the end, and they dance, it just felt really expected to me. There was no need to show Chloe all mopey over that.

I agree about Lucy probably just coming too soon. As someone already commented, they no doubt did it to show another side to Lois, but we have to care more for Lois first in order to care about her family dysfunction.

Spirit is definitely a guilty pleasure for me. Structurally it doesn't work since the teaser gives away FAR too much of the story, but that obviously doesn't matter as much for repeat viewings. I kinda liked Dawn as a FOTW: she was so true to her warped world view that she wound up killing herself! And like you, I never thought Chloe was owed a dance. She knew going in what Clark wanted and she encouraged both of them to work up the nerve to go, so why should she moan that they took her advice. In fact, she didn't. Like you, I kinda think Clark helped her enjoy her unexpected Prom Queen victory.

And to make matters worse, now that Lois has been on the show long enough for her family situation, and members, to really have meaning for us...they don't even bother to mention them. Frustrating writers!

I'm not sure why this even did that teaser with Spirit. It just wasn't necessary.

Dawn cracked me up, and the actress totally committed to the role. And because she did, the SV regulars really had something to work with when mimicing her. AOT was so damned funny.

I always thought there should've been a lot more Lex/Lois interaction. MR and ED were good together. Ah well.

I'm still in wait-and-see mode with S9. The actors cast so far are much more then I expected, but it won't mean a thing if the writing and story aren't there. And in the end, guest stars don't mean much if the storie for the regulars isn't getting its due.

*sigh* I wish I didn't feel so apprehensive.

I really don't see how Lois would've been doing Chloe any favors by pushing Clark to dance with her when she knew that Clark wanted to be dancing with someone else. It just doesn't compute for me.

Wow! If looks could kill, Lois would be dead after that first picture! The rest of the pictures are beautiful, of course! :-)

Lucy is one of my least-liked SV episodes. It wasn't the idea of meeting Lois' family that I didn't like, it was the character of Lucy herself. I hated her, like fiery passion hated her. I think I was supposed to feel some sympathy or concern for her.. maybe? But nope. I felt nothing but sympathy for Lois for having such a horrible sister in her life. Her distasteful personality really cast a huge shadow on that entire episode for me. I am more than happy to not have her ever show up again. However, I do enjoy the General. :)

I also found Spirit entertaining, both on a humorous level, and of course, the Clana dance which for me is one of the most beautiful moments in the entire series. It's also one of the earliest and biggest moments that made me really respect Lois Lane for putting what Clark wanted before anything else, including coddling her moping cousin. Lois was wonderfully supportive but frank with Chloe, and she totally helped Clark by realizing and respecting what was in his heart at that moment. I really loved her for that because it was giving and the *right* thing to do.

I honestly can't understand why anyone would possibly think that Clark owed Chloe anything. All he ever owed her, emotionally, was the truth. And that's something he gave her time and time again. Her misery was her own doing because she couldn't accept it for far too long. I hate when Clark gets blamed for HER continued pining!

Oh... and "Crown's MINE, bitch!" still KILLS ME! LOL!

I agree with you about Lucy, the character. And its even more frustrating for me, because she's a one-off character, and so it feels unresolved to me. I'm really not sure why the hardships of Lois' childhood are brushed off by some....oh wait, I know why.

The prom dance in Spirit was a beautiful Clana moment. And really, if someone had a beef with it, I would think it would be regarding the Jason angle, not that Clark should've been with Chloe.

But, like I said to Trish above, I've argued this point over half a dozen times, and I really find no fault with anything Clark, Lana or Lois did. And yes, I do think Chloe is responsible for her own moping. She was just crowned prom queen, she should be soaking up that attention, and feeling proud that she's so well liked by her schoolmates.

There is so much funny in Spirit. Not only do I like that Clark line, but I also love the way Tom says "Seriously Mr Kent, you can't stop me..." LOL
