I don't care for Reckoning.  Its an episode that I just don't think should've been written the way it was written.  It was an episode designed to put more guilt on Clark, and I just don't understand that mindset.  I also think its incredibly rushed.  The reveal to Lana, and her reaction to it was shoved into a teaser.  Ridiculous!  And Lana's decision to leave the Kent celebration to go consol Lex, without telling Clark just infuriates the hell out of me.  And I know its a bullshit contrivance, but still...  And do you realize that the big 100th episode doesn't feature a real Clex scene? 

Now, as much as Reckoning displeases me, I LOVE Vengeance.  Adore it to pieces.  Its one of my underappreciated eps of SV.  Tom's performace is so incredible.  The hitch in his voice when his mom wants him to wear the watch, the reaction to Lana touching him, the way his anger came through, the compassion he shows to Andrea, and finally the breakdown at the end.  He's terrific (as is AOT).  And I loved his chemistry with DQ.

Tomb is a dumb story.  A really dumb story.  But AM and ED give good performances, and Clark is a wonderful friend to Chloe in this one. 

And I apologize in advance, but I seem to have a lot of the same caps as others have already posted.

Holy Height Difference!

Me too. I remember watching it with my mother, and the both of us started crying, because it reminded us very much of my own father dying. It was superb. Just a perfect SV moment.

I'm torn on Reckoning. I agree the premise was dumb, but damn if the coda doesn't make up for it. That's one beautiful funeral.

Vengeance on the other hand, I'm not a big fan of. I didn't care at all about Andrea, the actress was painful to watch and I thought while it was nice of Lana to get the watch back, it just seemed too forced. But holy crap that final scene. Makes me cry every. time. Clark needs to do that more often.

It is a beautiful funeral (though I think there should've been more extras). One of the MANY reasons I wish Reckoning was a 2-parter is because I would've liked to see people gather at the Kent farm after the funeral.

I appreciate Lana getting the watch back for Clark in Vengeance because the Clana had become so painful at that point, so I appreciated the kind moment.

I hated Reckoning (I never ever watched it again!) and I really liked Vengeance. As for Tomb... is there an episode named Tomb? :D (Tomb features another example of why I couldn't ever like S5 Lois)

Gorgeous caps!

I've rewatched Reckoning, but I just hate the whole construct of it SO MUCH. Its sort of a mini-version of everything thats wrong with this show, in a way.

Lois is sort of abrasive in Tomb. I'm very glad they softened her up a bit when it comes to Clark.

Nice shots!

That 3rd one is just WOW nice choices

That still is from the deleted scene of Reckoning where Clark brings his Dad to the fortress. I think they should've kept that scene in.

Sad Clark :-( Why is it I'm still like oh so pretty.

LOL, because he is! I'm half convinced one of the reasons that this show always has Clark so sad is because Clark looks beautiful in his sadness.

Tom is so amazing! He really should have been nominated for an Emmy for Vengeance. Or at least a Golden Globe or something!!!

Unfortuntately no one on this show is likely to be recognized in that way, but it would be nice, at least, to see the fandom really appreciate Tom for his performances.
