Clark Meme - Cyborg, Hypnotic, Void


Cyborg is a pretty good episode.  I liked Victor a lot, and Clark was a good mentor for him.  But honestly, whenever I watch this episode, I can't help but think about how sick Tom was during the filming of this episode.  And if you look at the stills, he doesn't look well.  His eyes are glassy in many caps.

Hypnotic.  Sure, Tom Welling doing love scenes is the Hotness!  There's just something about how he approaches those scenes.  I think its because he doesn't look awkward, like, At All.  And I can get over the end of Clana (though it should've been ended in Reckoning, and remained so for the remainder of the season).  But what I can't get over with this episode is Lex setting up a situation where Clark is taken advantage of sexually.  Because thats the bottom line.  He created a situation where Clark was UNABLE to say "No" to Simone.  It bothers the hell out of me, and its always bothered me even more that so many just don't hold Lex responsible for this at all.  Yet Clark gets nailed to the wall if he looks at Lex the wrong way.  Bah!  Sorry, this episode always makes me rant.

Void.  Pretty awful episode.  And the fact that Lana apologizes profusely to Lex, but not to Clark for nearly getting him killed burns my ass every single time.  As does Martha leaving her son, who is obviously upset about something, so she can step out with Lionel.

I understand hating Hypnotic for the why Lex was written in that episode, much like I hate Promise for how Clark was written. But I don't understand just acting like it didn't happen.

Its just one of those lightening rod episodes, I guess.

There are people (the Lex apologists) who insist that Lex didn't send Simone there to break up Clana, despite the fact that its the first thing she talks about in her progress report. No way could she have known he'd be interested if he didn't tell her to do it.

And then they say Lex had no way of knowing Simone would turn it into a sexual situation. Which I can sort of believe because its Lex's MO: he thinks he can control people and never thinks of them as going beyond what he specifically hires them to do. (Think Roger Nixon, think Hamilton, think of a whole long list of lackeys.) Point is, when you hire people you KNOW to be morally dodgy, you can't escape the fact that you are complicit in what they do.

Sorry for the rant, but Hypnotic is one of my hot button issues too. Especially since I can't believe Simone didn't have sex with Clark, despite what he later said to Chloe. I mean, come on!

Simone not having sex with Clark is totally ridiculous. I don't know why the show is so ludicrous with this stuff.

Of course Lex sent Simone to break up Clana. The first thing she tells him is that Lana Lang won't be sending Clark anymore Valentines. I don't really think it reflects any better on Lex that he didn't have any control over how she achieved that.
