SPOILER. Highlight below text to read

From kryptonsite.com:

Female villain: Doomsday won’t be Clark’s only nemesis in the upcoming season. The executive producers are tight-lipped about a new female villain they will be introducing, but they can say she will be familiar to many fans and will set her sights on Clark in ways Lex never could. Intelligent, brilliantly manipulative, and dangerously sinister, our gorgeous new villain has one more weapon in her arsenal: Her mutual attraction with Clark may prove to be as deadly as kryptonite for him.

Lots of possibilities there, but my first guess is Maxima!

Lex discovered the location of the Fortress and flew there. Chloe and Clark figured out what he was up to and Clark super-sped up there where Lex put two-and-two together once he saw Clark with him. He told Clark that if he was simply honest with him in the first place he could have made Clark a hero whereas Clark countered he could never trust Lex because Lex is basically a selfish person.

Lex then took the crystal in his possesion and placed it on the crystal dais of the Fortress, bringing it down on both of them. Tune in this fall for the next exciting episode!

LOL. Now I remember watching it. I guess it didn't make any impression on me. Clark would still shield Lex from the falling ice, unless the crystal depowers Clark.

A lackluster finale. But it did accomplish things. Lana's gone and Lois and Clark had a "moment".

I'm eager to see how the new writers do Season 8. I think it'll be better.

Oh, and cool beans to Allison Mack coming back.

Chloe is my fave character on the show.

Things I want to see for next season:

~Clark flying. Please.

Totally agree. Clark is looking really stupid by him not figuring out how to fly. He's had these powers way longer than Kara, and she can fly!

~LuthorCorp becomes LexCorp.

~The Green Lantern Corps.

~The return of Martha Kent. Possibly her father as well. Maybe we find out he's been paying the mortgage all this time and he becomes more of a father figure to Clark, but Clark learns why Jonathan didn't like him as well.

~An Elseworlds episode where what would have happened if Clark was honest with Lex from the beginning.

~Corporate warfare between LexCorp and Wayne Enterprises with Lex facing off against Lucius Fox.

~An appearence by the Phantom Stranger, confirming with Clark his destiny.

~The Legion.

~Mon-el.

I love all of these. It would inject a lot of great stories into the serie's staleness.

~Diana of Themyscria. Please make this happen.

~Lois and Clark on a date.

I can't believe just how much Clark regressed as a character without Martha. He's like the proverbial boat without a rudder right now. His parents are gone. Pete Ross is gone. He's out of high school and college. All he does is work on the farm and occasionally help people. He needs to be more than that. He's barely searching for his roots at that. Lionel sometimes seemed to know more than Clark about his origins and that's just wrong.

Tom and Erica work very, very well with each other. Especially when Lois has something over Clark. Tom plays the role of squirming, uncomfortable Clark well (remember when he and Lois were chewed out by Jonathan and Martha after being caught coming out of the shower?) and I love it when Lois thinks she has something over Clark.

I was really hoping at least there'd be interest on Clark's part in Lois at this point. Especially when Lois planted one on him when he was dressed as Green Arrow. With Lana reduced to a smaller role hopefully that will happen.

I heartily agree that Martha needs to be on the show. Jonathan & Martha are the reason for Clark's moral compass.

I've been saying and thinking this all season. Martha needs to be on the show again.

I'd also love to see the Phantom Stranger in a Halloween episode which allowes Clark to communicate with Jonathan one last time. (Like the Talking to the Dead episodes in Babylon 5 and Buffy.)

Thank the stars that Chloe is coming back. She's the only one who seems to light a fire under Clark about discovering his origins and destiny. While he was mooning over coma Lana, she was freaking about Lex getting the keys to open that safe deposit box. Clark needs Chloe to continue to smack him upside the head and say "Snap out of it!"

A tad OT, but the new Smallville Justice figures are out and they look great. Much better than the first wave from a few years back. I'd love for them to make a Kara, Chloe, Lois and Jimmy figure for the next wave.

This is cool idea and a great story. Jonathon needs to do more guest appearances in the episodes for the same reason Martha needs to be in the show.

That's one of the reasons why I totally love her character. I'm really curious about Brainiac's comment about Chloe when he tried to kill her this last episode.

Yeah...that was my favorite part of a mostly lackluster finale. The look of fear on Brainiac's face as he took a step back and said "What in the Hell are you?" Ha, ha...that was sweet!

Chloe sure had an action packed finale--from sleuth to she-who-scares-Brainiac-girl to coma girl to 'look-at-me-I'm-magically fine' girl to proposed to girl to arrested girl!! I'm glad Chloe is the center of attention, but, even for her, this rapid turn of events was mindblowing! Every commercial break seemed to bring Chloe to a new place!

Why didn't Clark just run at superspeed and punch Lex before he put the stone or whatever into the device at the FoS? Clark needs to stop being written so stupid. Jor-El will probably tell Clark that he is tired of cleaning up his messes and erase lex's memories and refuse to allow the Fortress to be rebuilt until he embraces his destiny.

Or the show will act like nothing happened and go 'la-la-la' forward!
