  • Another Lois & Clark revelation episode

    I don't know why they didn't do this years earlier, maybe drawing out Clark and Lana for so long really mustered up mixed feelings. Like, it was building something up between Lois & Clark, and even though we waited 4 years for Lois to inadvertently tell Clark she loves him, well it is worth it.
  • A clever title goes here!

  • engagement party, Lois and Clark, Crazy kidnapping man...

    This is one of my all time favourite episodes of smallville... It is time for chloe and jimmy to see if they are really meant for each other when a crazy man kidnaps them to see if they are meant to be married... Well clark and lois come to there rescue when they fake to be engagement (awesome) to lore out the kidnapper... While on there adventure of pretend marriage... they also get caught due to the horrible force of meteor rocks against clark...

  • lois say's i love you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    lois and clark get kidnapped. he makes them take a lie ditector test and makes them show their real feelings. Meanwhile chloe and jimmy search for them. finally when the man asks if lois loves clark he tells her to tell the truth and she says YES!!!!!! Clark doesnt have a chance to say how he really feels because he stops him before he can answer. later when they are at work lois says she was just predending because she took the finger thing off. he looks disapponted. they should just admit that they love each other. but clark needs to get over lana in order to do that.

    lois+clark=love forevermoreless
  • The ideal episode for Clois fans, everyone admitting their faults (mostly), and we finally get a little taste of Clark and Lois' relationship. Plus the whole Jimmy/Chloe scene was amusing.

    The first thing that sticks in my mind was that fact that Lois admits she loves Clark. I mean, even I thought while it was too soon, it was still adorable. We never really got the sense that she loved him, just liked him a lot. The only thing that wrecked it was that we never got Clark's answer about if he loved Lois. The agony! Plus seeing his face when she said yes was priceless. And the whole idea behind the madman's torture of newlyweds was understandable. A man dumped because his wife betrayed him? Most people would just kill her, but this guy goes on a rampage against engaged couples, considering his shock torture as couple's therapy. It was also really sweet to see Jimmy and Chloe evolve as a couple, before I wouldn't have said that they had too much of a future, but now I can say if you truly want someone to live, you tell the truth no matter how harmful it can be. Still, it was a filler episode and had no real plot other than getting the audience to see that there was a possibility to the Lois and Clark future.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • When her tormentor connected the first lead to the contact on Chloe's chair, we saw an electrical spark. Since there was no circuit until the second lead was connected, there should not have been a spark.

    • Trivia: When Lois wakes up in the morning after the engagement party, she is seen wearing Clark's football jersey with a LuthorCorp logo on it. This is the same jersey Clark wore on the season 4 episode "Jinx."

    • Injoke: When Clark tells Lois to get on the elevator, and that statistically, it's still the safest way to travel, he echoes Superman's lines to Lois in Superman The Movie in regards to flying, which was in turn echoed in Superman Returns.
