Your influence will reach far beyond earth  

I loved this episode. Yes, am I bothered that more people tell Clark his greatness. I mean by now he should take a hint and put on a red and blue uniform with a cape or fly. That is one of my reasons why I don't want a s9. It is just prolonging him being Superman, which he should have became by now.

We come from the future 
The beginning of the episode was awesome as we enter the barn a streamer is titled "To the Future", which is a cute throw to the new people we will meet.

Garth was great, some have coined him annoying but I disagree, I liked the boy's enthused spirit. Not only was he a Superman fanboy; he was the general audience's spokesperson as well.  ('Where's your cape?', my favorite is Garth's disappointed reaction "Can't fly? Rokk what's up with that!", "Are you sure we got the right guy?")   

Aw, hero worship. I felt bad they discovered their hero was not in full swing, but it's good that they still believed in him at the end. 
This episode reminded me of Action, in a way. Just no psychotic fanboy.

"You understand sacrifice more than anyone"
Saturn Girl seemed to be a Lana sympathizer. The last time the writers gave us one of those was in Trespass, of course he was very insane. 

It was funny how Lana at first thought the girl was delusional.  I do believe she is the first person to tell Lana "I didn't mean to scare you" and sincerely mean it. lol.  I felt sorry that this girl was asking Lana something that had incredibly been the fallout of the Clana relationship. Hence Lana's emphasis "Hells to the no. Do you understand?"  Later, Lana will tell Saturn Girl "You were only doing what you thought was best" pointing out there is no grudge against her request, also because in s7 she herself believed that killing was the solution too.

I never thought that Lana hero worshipped Clark until "the Clark I know would never doubt himself- He would never waver!"
I did enjoy the Clana scenes. :)

I found it annoying that she is always in black. I get it. Also, Lana's BS "I'm another person" WTFE. 

When the Legion mentioned Chloe changing her name, Chlois may have came to mind but I thought of something better WATCHTOWER.

I'm at the point where I don't care if Lana, Chloe, Lois, or Shelby is the reason why Clark will fly. I just want him to.

Fabulous review. I havent watched all of it, i have to do that.

Here to hoping we see Lana in something other than black. :)

I do NOT want Clark's flight happen with Chloe.

I doubt we will see Lana in another color, except that nice white coat she wears in the promos. :)

yeah, i noticed the symbolism of Lana holding the bride's flowers in tears.

I loved Clark in this episode. :XD

I'm glad Chloe knows his secret but I wonder why the writers decided to give her back the memories? hmm...

Clark was wonderful! :D

It is puzzling why they felt it best to have her remember again. I figured if she got it back it would be in Infamous or later.

Ya, I'm with you on this. I'd prefer of course if it were Shelby though, heh. ;-)

Really? Not for Lois? lol
Thanks for reading, sweetie. ;)

Well, Shelby is the cutest---

Heh, no. But honestly? I guess it's just a desire to avoid any kind of shippiness attached to his first flight at all. I think it'd be far more heroic if it were "random guy/girl" in trouble instead of Lana, Chloe or even Lois. Hell, I'd rather it be Tess actually. Then there'd be no room left for arguments like, "Clark flew for my girl" etc.

Having said that, I'm so eager for the flight, period, that it could be motivated by anyone/anything at this point, and I'd be OK with it.

lol. You have a point. *sighs* Shipping wars ruin everything. :)

I have this feeling on SV he won't fly due to the show's budget. CW sucks with no bendy-straw. :(
