I am not a fan of Justice.  I so wish I could be, but I've always deeply resented the way Clark, and his history with the other "heroes", was handled in this episode.

I love Labyrinth.  Its a gorgeous episode to watch, Tom gives an incredible performance, and SHELBY!

I like parts of Crimson, but I thinking taking a Red K episode, mixing in Lois/Clois, and then turning it into a Clexana episode was just a huge mistake.  And I hate Martha Kent at the engagement party with a passion.

That was a great visual from Justice. I just wish the episode had supported that moment with the story.

I actually like the Clois stuff from Crimson. I think they should've made the episode more about the RedK Clark and Lois' madcap adventures, with Chloe and Jimmy on their heels, trying to avert disaster. I just didn't need the Lexana angle of that episode at all.

Tommy was amazing in Labyrinth - so beautiful, panicked and vulnerable. And I love both the Clex scenes.

He was fanastic. And on screen for 37 freaking minutes. The SV record! And the Clex was very emotionally charged.

I´m glad to see that others didn´t like the overrated Justice episode either. I found that Clark was written quite jerky and self-righteous in this episode, which is why I´ve disliked it up until today.

Thanks for the gorgeous Tommy pics! :)

Justice is definitely one of those eps where Clark is thrown under the bus so other characters can look good. The writer of the ep, Stephen DeKnight, all but admitted that very thing.

And you're welcome. Its my pleasure. :)

Labryinth is still one of my favorite episodes Tom has done
He was so good at playing crazy LOL

Crimson was a fav of mine course I could've done with out the Bhlana mess too I mean come on dude she's supposedly pregnant and engaged to be married GET OVER IT

Justice I actually liked I guess all the eyecandy blinded me to the poor writing of Clark

Tom is such an underrated actor, period.

I really thought they pushed it too far with Crimson, when they could've made it light and fun. But thats sort of SV's MO, unfortunately.

And there is never enough eyecandy in the world to make me forgive bad Clark writing. I'm stubborn when it comes to My Clark!

Tom did such an amazing job conveying so much in this episode with those amazing eyes. I just want to give him a big hug.

Justice...I so wanted to like this episode 'cause I wuv Steve DeKnight and I'm was a comic book geek growing up but I didn't like how the group treated Clark either and the only parts I like was the explosion *yeah baby strut*, Clark walking in on Lois holding up lingerie and his reaction, and the Lollie break up which I thought was well written and very well acted.

Crimson...loved Clark and Lois but could have done without turning it into Clana and Clexana soapfest too. They should have kept it fun and light but slip into seriousness of them nearly getting going too far but being stopped and then dealing with the ramifications of this redk love potion day always lurking in the background. But sadly AlMiles usually like to tease with fun CLOIS and then always revert to what I think they loved....

He looked so positively broken as Labyrinth went on. I adore the scene where he's torn between Lana and Chloe, and he's looking back and forth between them. Its so wonderfully done.

We're pretty much of the same mind with Crimsona and Justice. They could've, and should've, been better eps.

ITA about all three, but especially Labyrinth love. I can never understand people who write it off becasue of what Clark said about still loving Lana. Of course he does, otherwise she wouldn't have been such potent bait. And I don't blame him for missing the obvious subtext that she is in fact more deadly than kryponite to him because that seemed totally in keeping with his character.

Crimson I quite liked right up to the barn scene with the Lana kiss and proposal, and even then I just shrugged and compared it to how he behaved with Alicia. Yes, it would have been fun if they'd sticked more to Clois, but it was too soon for that and the writers were obviously determined to have their Clexana. So given that, I kinda enjoyed what Kal said to Martha and his anger at Chloe, if not his taunt at the end, I mean, I understand keeping your friend's secrets, but not telling your other friend that you're a bridesmaid with bridesmaid duties? I just wish the show would know when they were crossing the boundaries of acceptable behaviour. Was what Clark did to Lana kidnapping. Not exactly to my eyes but it certainly makes him look bad.

Sorry for babbling again. I should know better than to try and reply late at night.

I can understand the frustration with the ending of Labyrinth, because it certainly did seem to show that Clark's weakness for Lana was a detriment to him. And if thats not the message they wanted to send, then I think the episode should've been structured differently. I think the problem is that they send messages like this, then turn around and make Clark all about Lana, which definitely confuses the issue for fans. Are we supposed to be rooting for them or against them? But its typical of this show to not pick a side.

I really loved Clark crashing the party in Crimson, because I think he was masking some justifiable anger at all those people. But I could've lived without him grabbing Lana, and the whole barn scene (which I always thought was far more about Lex then Lana anyway).

They do like their "flip-flops". Yeah I didn't like it when Clark under RedK kidnapped Lana either and IMO it would have been more powerful to have just left it at Clark crashing the party and what he said leaving a bad taste in everyone's mouths.

I think that they feel like as long as they play both sides, they don't have to make a commitment. Of course, that sort of writing is crap.

There were a lot of ways to write Crimson so that it was a far better episode. But I'm fond of saying about SV writers....they never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity.

Legion was a better ep for Clark, which makes it a better ep for me. Justice was too much about pushing Clark to the side to make the other heroes more important and heroic.

I can certainly understand people having issues with the storyline of both Labyrinth and Splinter.
