  • Supergirl 2.0

    Covenant-Kara, a beautiful superpowered girl from Krypton, entices Clark to join with his father and embrace his destiny. Clark is left without support after Pete's departure when Jonathan reveals the deal he made with Jor-El. At the same time, Clark's relationships with Lex and Lana take unexpected turns, leaving him with no one but Kara to turn to.

    A strong finale that feels more like a huge build up to the last 10 mintues, then rapping up all the storylines of the season. The introduction of Kara Zor-El aka Supergirl was a real treat and Adrianne Palicki (Kara/Lindsey Harrison) has great presence even undeniable wonder she brings to the character. It's actually a real shame when Kara turns out not to be the iconic hero but Jor-El's lastest scheme of luring his son back to his destiny. Looking back on it, this version of Kara seems a lot more interesting and better portrayed than the real Kara who appears 4 seasons later (Sorry, Laura Vandarvoort!). I especially loved the display of Kara's powers, like how she flips the car over in the teaser and when she shoots some powerful energy out of her hands and kills that FBI agent in the car.

    The tension surrounding Lionel's trial and jail sentence is played out well, especially how it effects everyone's safety. The most interesting development is how Lionel gives Clark the key to Lex's secret room in the mansion. It's a excellent development that Lionel use this as an opportunity to break Clark and Lex up. You actually feel bad that Clark and Lex might finally have a rift in their friendship but Lex's obsession is quite disturbing at the same time. Other great developments are when Kara reminds Jonathan about his deal with Jor-El and finding out it was an exchange for Clark to return to Jor-El one day. I was also impressed by Lana's depature scene as Clark disappears and leaves a white rose for her on the ground. It also saves from more mushy, fussy Clana dialogue.

    The cliffhangers of the episode really make this episode as the last 5 minutes are the most epic and shocking moments of the series. First, Chloe and her father are escorted into a saftey house only for it to explode seconds later. Then, Lex's drink turns out to be poision and he collapses to the ground in his mansion. Lastly, a kryptonian symbol appears on the Kent farm in a large fire. It's a truly powerful sequence which encorporates a really moving opera piece and the sight of Lionel getting his head shaved then smiling at the end is just so incredibly evil as he seems to win despite his defeat. Not to mention, the sight of Clark floating away naked into a black hole of nothingness leaves a dark tone as you wonder what Jor-El will do with him and what has happened to Jonathan who is now unconscious. "Covenant" isn't the biggest finale, but it's one of the most ambitious, with shocking cliffhangers and amazing developments that make it another highlight of Smallville's finest season to date!
  • Wow.

    A finale that had so much promise kept me wondering almost all the way through if it would be as captivating as the last two season finales. And surprise, surprise - it was!

    The appearance of the mystery girl had me wondering if this was Kara the Supergirl, only to have it turn out to be a girl used by Jor-El to lure Clark to him. I was wondering when Jor-El would finally want Clark for himself. The episode in itself was above average until the last five minutes, where it turns into pure gold.

    So many things happened before that - Pete already left, Lana flew to Paris, Chloe was willing to give up her freedom, and Clark learned about Lex's investigation. But that was only the beginning. The last five minutes were pure brilliance - I couldn't believe how great it was.

    Now I can't wait to begin watching the following season to see if Chloe is alive (okay, I know this one, but still, that was a damn finale), how Clark will return, what will happen Lana, and so much more. Now this is how you do a finale.
  • this was a good ep

    in the season 3 final of smallville and big things are going to take place clark meets this women claming to be from krpton and she knows his father and she wants him to come with her to forfill his destiny and pete is gone and lex is not really friend at this point and lana is leaving for paris and so he must make this decision and clarks dad reaveals the deal he make with jor el clarks real dad this was a good ep for season 3 final and that is why i gave this ep a 9
  • The season climax - a young woman claiming to be from Krypton urges Clark to leave Earth with her, Lionel is imprisoned but still ruthless, Lex has turned against him, Lana is leaving for Paris, Chloe is threatened over her testimony. It's spectacular.

    The setup scene for "Covenant" resembles the first "Terminator" film - an unclothed person performs an amazing feat of destruction (beautiful young woman wandering in the night whacks an approaching car and flips it into a pile of flaming wreckage). Can hardly wait to see if she'll enter a bar, demand someone's outfit, and head out on a Harley. Close - the bar is instead the Kent home, what a nice trick or treat outfit. Clark gets to answer the knock - "Hello Clark. My name is Kara. I'm from Krypton." Sounds like a fun new playmate - anyone who knows that planet should be welcomed.

    The Kent family has a nice chat with the newcomer - she claims to have entered our planet through a passage in the cave wall. Jonathan is challenging; she rebuffs him and uses the name Kal-El, saying she's come to take him home. Proceedings interrupted by the entrance of Lex, and Kara is gone in a flash. Clark clues us in to Lionel being jailed after his arrest last week, but Lex explains he may be out on bail soon unless witnesses attest to him doing harm. Clark volunteers to testify about Lionel's electroshock treatment of Lex at Belle Reve, against medical advice.

    Lex realizes angrily that Clark has known about Lionel's murder of his parents - but Clark never told him - to protect him. Lex relents. And Lionel is led into confinement - with his FBI friend nearby, who is defensive of his deal with Lionel, but then there was that new murder evidence dug up by Chloe, whom he referrs to as a "bleached-blonde Pulitzer wannabe." Lionel calmly asks agent Loder about details on Clark - expecting to be out on bail soon. Loder tells him their deal is over. At the Kents, Lex leaves in his M-B CL 550, and of course Kara reappears, clad this time, and telling Clark he was not meant for this world, but for hers. He refers to himself as Clark, expressing his independence of any alien's expectations. Not so easy to brush her off when she grasps his arm and they float slowly into the night sky. Since this is all too easy and convenient, one could expect Kara to be some sort of shape-shifter like Brainiac/Fine, so the writers have telegraphed something sinister simply by the absence of same. Clark is portrayed as too trusting yet again.

    She takes him to the cave - a fissure has indeed appeared in the wall. And Clark begins to suspect Jor-El is behind this event, and the dilemma is whether to follow Kara into the portal, or stay put. He declines the offer.

    Lionel remains in federal prison, when Lex arrives and jabs him with "Orange is a good color for you, Dad." Lionel admits failing Lex, but as underhanded as these two have always been, we can only suspect he's trying to control the situation again. He does reveal his fatal liver disease - and begs Lex to keep him from dying in prison. Lex sarcastically rejects the appeal.

    The plot is beginning to break down a bit - are the Kents going to keep Kara as a house guest indefinitely? If she has superpowers, they may as well put her to work mucking the stalls or tossing hay bales. Kara reveals Jonathan's failure to keep the "Covenant" with Jor-El, which required him to return Clark to Jor-El if Jonathan was given the power to return Clark from Metropolis, all in the season 3 premiere, "Exile."

    Kara detects someone listening in - it's agent Loder out on the highway - Kara intercepts him and fries the whole car and Loder into digital vapor. Clark is upset at this murder, Martha is angry at Jonathan for his secret deal, and Kara just has no emotions at all. Now the Kents may lose Clark, so the script builds up some tension by this point, and no one has to overact at all, directing is just right.

    Jonathan makes an unusual visit to Chloe at the Torch - asking her to get fingerprints off Kara's teacup. Does he really think she's an earthling? A zombie inhabited by a Zoner? Meanwhile, Lana drives out to see Clark. She's still Paris-bound, hoping yet again that Clark will tell her what she missed at their aborted dinner engagement. Ms. Kreuk has an entirely new hairstyle, and manages to make even this slightly disheveled look appear attractive. Clark starts to speak...but no, they're interrupted by the sight of Kara in the distance, Clark identifying her as his cousin.

    As Lana leaves, Kara begins to speak of the strong love that will come between her and Clark, as the only ones who can preserve the Kryptonian race. Now we begin to see the true motives of Kara, but really, Clark is not so easily seduced. Power, destiny, another's vision of how his life should be - these have all been rejected by Clark in many episodes - no different here. But he does have to fear her power and potential threats to family and friends - he puts their safety above all else. After this encounter, Clark receives a package from Lionel, containing only a door key.

    Lex has learned that Lionel's disease is as claimed, and confers with Chloe about continuing the case against him with her evidence. Lex does not relent - Lionel will die in prison - but this puts Chloe in a dilemma - she's not as hard-hearted as Lex, and she's going into protective custody until the trial. But she won't back down either. When one can't see the plot developments coming, it's evidence of a well-thought out story line, and excellent script writing, and this scene is more testimony to the skill of the Smallville production staff.

    Clark storms in on Lionel about the key - another surprise, as I expected Clark to use it somehow in Lionel's office - secret files, Swann stuff, kryptonian artifacts, something. Of course the plot ignores the potential conflict of a potential witness visiting the accused in prison. Lionel knows Clark will be a witness at his trial, buying into the version of events proposed by Lex. A sharp reply by Clark works well; "Buy into this - you're a murderer." He denies that, and says the key opens a door at the mansion. But Lionel offers answers Clark won't believe, behind the door.

    Clark enters the room - it's a secret cache of information about him, collected by Lex in his relentless pursuit of the mystery that is Clark. Even a pile of meteor rock, and he's careless again, as Lex finds him there. Lex claims it's all about him, not Clark - "More lies," Clark responds, reiterating his years of defending Lex to everyone. He storms out, later agonizing over his life with Martha, until realizing - Lana is leaving that day.

    With a tear-jerking background score, Lana is at the airport - but it's Lex who shows up for goodbyes. Their embrace is seen by Clark, too late again. She sees him there, but he's gone, leaving only the white rose he brought for her. This could be the sad ending of the episode, but there's more.

    At the courthouse, Chloe and Lex are alarmed that Clark has not shown up, but he arrives in time to testify, so Lionel does not get bail. Clark announces to Lex, "This friendship is over." This brings to mind many losses of relationship at this season-ender - even those that are troublesome are hard to release. Is all this enough to get Clark to jump the portal? Kara entices Clark with the promise of meeting his mother - Lara. "I'm ready," he says. Jonathan receives from Chloe the fingerprint i.d. on Kara. Hand-in-hand, Clark and Kara prepare to enter the brilliant light of the cave portal - just as Jonathan arrives, shouting that Kara is a human, a meteor-rock victim, being used by Jor-El to capture Clark. Jor-El's voice calls out - and "Kara" disappears into the light, her purpose served, as Clark shouts his defiance of Jor-El. Jonathan is enveloped in a rope of light, telling Clark to stay and be free, but Clark cannot let this happen to his father, and he is drawn into Jor-El's light.

    Packing even more into this episode, the finale is a stunning series of scenes set to a chorale without script - Lionel having his head shaved, Chloe arriving at a safe house in protective custody only to have the building explode in flames, Martha witnessing a burning kryptonian symbol in the pasture, Lex collapsing in agony after a drink, Jonathan prone on the cave floor, and...

    Clark, being transported away in an El family shield, into the clouds, as Jor-El intones, "Kal-El, my son, now you shall be re-born."

    What a finish. What a script. What a story-line. Smallville at it's finest, one of the essential episodes. Perfect season ender. Could not be better. Terrific. Let's hope that Season 4's premiere does not resolve these stirring events too quickly - they merit several episodes to play out, just to let us enjoy this tremendous dramatic build-up. Re-run rating A.
  • Great Episode

    In Kent Farm, Clark Kent is surprised in the middle of the night by a naked young woman claiming that she is Kara (Adrianne Palicki) from Krypton, and asking him to go with her somewhere through the Kawatche caves. Meanwhile, he decides to testify against Lionel Luthor to keep him in prison. Lionel sends a key of the secret chamber in the Mansion Luthor to Clark, and he finishes his friendship with Lex Luthor. Lana Lang travels to Paris and Chloe Sullivan and her father are included in the witness protection program. In "Covenant", there are many new situations to be explored in the Fourth Season, such as the travel of Lana Lang to Paris; the incident of Chloe Sullivan and her father in their new home; Lionel Luthor in the prison; but the most important, the end of the friendship of Clark and Lex. The "reborn" Clark will certainly be another possible attraction.
  • the best five minutes ever

    it was a really great episode for many reasons. you see despite all that he said clark what to find where do he really come from. kara told him that everyone around him would betray or live him, it happen. and about the end of the episode,when lionel shave his head. it was the greatest way of finshing a serie. everyone is in troble but we all knew that everyones is going to be ok.
  • By Far One of the best season finale's of Smallville!

    Chloe Dead, Johnathan Dead? Lex Dead? and Linoel in prison. i seriously cant wait for what's coming next. Honestly Jor-El ploy to get Clark was stunning and highly unexpected. Furthermore the powers that Kara has got me excited and waiting for when Clark can do the same things. Great Episode GO SMALLVILLE
  • An exciting season finale.

    This is a really good season finale episode, it gives a hint of what might happen in the future. So much stuff are bound to happen in this rich universe. the smallville myth is getting bigger each season, it's a rich universe on it's own much bigger and better than the previous superboy tv shows. This episode might be a cliffhanger, but we're assured that exciting stuff is ahead next season. This episode sums up the season with an exciting plot line. There's intrigue, there's mystery. It's a really enjoyable episode, I really had fun with it, it's an awesome episode.
  • A young girl with powers says she’s from Krypton and wants Clark to join he in reestablishing the Kryptonian race. As Lionel is in penitentiary he’s connection may have deadly consequences for his enemies.

    Clark is attracted to girls that have special abilities or “think” they know something about Clark his biological past. You can tell he wants to love someone but Clark he has to stop being so desperate to find that one. In good news Clark has good sense in being around beautiful people.
    Girls around Clark:
    a. Tend to beautiful
    b. Think there are Clark’s soul mates
    c. Expose themselves
    d. Try to kill friends/family or past girlfriends (Lana)

    A few things don’t add up:
    1. Where did Kara get her cloths from? Wasn’t she wearing Clark’s shirt after the Kent’s invited her in and before Lex showed up.
    2. Towards the end of the episode we see an overview of the Kent’s home and land. There looks like what will become a road leading to the Kent’s driveway in the backfield. In earlier episodes of the season. a stone road was already there...episode with Parry White.
    3. Pete and Clark would play basketball a lot together and the basketball hop was below Clark’s loft window on the right side. At certain shots of the Kent farm the basketball hop isn’t there.
    This season was better then one and two. This episode ended just has well as the season began. A lot of good scenes has when Kara kills the federal agent in the car. Lana leaving for Paris and Clark see’s her and Lex; but the song playing was what makes it so great. The special effects of Clark going into the cave. Last the transition from the explosion of Chloe’s save house to the fire that Mrs. Kent see’s in the field. What makes the ending even better was the twist we find out that Kara isn’t really from Krypton. Really hope Chloe doesn’t die...the ending is going to make everyone tune into season four to see what happens.
    Good quote:
    Lex: “Orange is a good color for you, Dad, although it might get a little old after 25 to life.”
  • A great episode from beginning to end.

    This is a really great season finale because throughtout the whole episode you wonder if Kara really is from Krypton and if she really is Supergirl. Then there is also the relationship between Clark and Lex. After Clark finds out that Lex is still studying him, they break off the friendship making them closer and closer to being enemies. Also at the end, there were a number of cliffhangers unlike the recent season finales. There is Lionel getting stabbed, Chloe and her father's safe house exploding with them inside, the sign on the Kent's field, wondering what happened to Clark getting reborn and wondering if Jonathan is okay or not. This is a fine example of Smallville being a great show.
  • YES!

    I can't tell you how much I love episodes where Clark learns something new about his heritage. Those episodes and "episodes where so-and-so finds out" are the ones that I actually wait for. I sometimes wish that they could all be like that (for about two seconds, and then I realize that if all of the episodes were like that, then they would be nothing special and there would be no room for normal character development, and we wouldn't care about the characters, and the show wouldn't have lasted two seasons).

    So, just because I have a special fondness for episodes where Clark learns something new, this episode gets a high rating.

    Also, the way Clark was stripped of everyone except Martha (Pete, Jonathan, Chloe, Lana, Lex) was beautifully done. I thought the bit with Lex was a bit rushed (Clark isn't known for being able to make 180-degree turns in his opinions of people like that), but they made up for it later.

    And the entire ending sequence with Mozart's Requiem in the background was amazing. It definitely made an impression (especially Chloe's apparent death and Clark's "incubation"), which is what you want in a season finale.

    Wonderful episode. I knocked it down a couple of notches because Kara kind of got on my nerves, but overall, it was wonderful.
  • This is the season 3 final of Smallville. A girl from Krypto comes to get Clark to come back to his home planet. Lana leaves for Paris

    This is the greatest Smallville episode ever. It was very dramatic and very entertaining.

    While being the best it was also one of the saddest. Watching Lana leave for Paris was a very sad momant, for we think Clark may never see her again (of course that will be wrong).

    The final scenes will be in my memory forever. So much happens in such a short space of time and leaves us with one hell of an ending. Certainly one of the greatest cliffhangers of any show ever. Will John die? Is Chloe dead? Will Clark ever see Lana again? Will Lionel get out of jail?

    A great ending for a great season of such a great show- which paved the way for the best season yet (season 4).

  • Great!

    This episode is really cool, and I think that this episode is one of the best finales ever, and well first of all Lana is finally leaving, and Clark recieves the visit from a female that comes from Krypton, and she has powers even more powerful than Clark, and later things get worse. Clark finds out that Lex has been investigating him, Lionel goes to jail, Jonathan falls into a comam, and Clark is dragged by Jor-El to fulfill his destiny. Cool!
  • Great Episode

    I love this episode, we have a girl thats from the planet Krypton, or so we thought. We have Lana leaving on her trip. The FBI agent learning all about Clarks secrets, and getting it in the end by Kara. It turns out that Kara is Just a girl who was missing since the Shower 14 years ago. Someone who Jor-El has gaven powers just like Clark. She's showing him that he will one day fly as she did. In the end we truly finds out about the true of her being there. Leaving us with a very good cliffhanger for the 4th season, in all I am giving this episode a 9.2
  • Very good episode it is the best series finale yet.

    The story revolves around the mysterious woman Kara, who claims to be from Krypton and invites Clark to join her in their acceptances of their true destinies. Of course, Jonathan and Martha are skeptical and downright suspicious of the girl. When her powers continue to come forward, with sometimes devastating consequences, Clark is convinced she is indeed from Krypton but does not want to join her given her less-than-moral behavior.

    Through Kara's mysterious appearance, Jonathan Kent's deal with Jor-El is exposed, and Clark begins to realize that he cannot escape the Kryptonian hold over him. Add to that the shattering realization that Lex has an obsession with the mysteries surrounding him. In a wonderfully disturbing sequence, Clark enters Lex's "locked room" and discovers the multitude of evidence and unexplained phenomena revolving around Clark Kent. Clark, disillusioned by Lex's secret investigation and by Lana's departure to Paris and by Pete's move to Wichita, begins to realize that Kara's (and Jor-El's) predictions were all coming to fruition.

    But when Kara's behavior is truly explained, Clark is repulsed but also resigned to Jor-El's power over him. He accepts Jor-El's invitation with unknowingly devastating consequences with Jonathan. Finally, a mysterious marking appears on the Kent farm
  • A tremendous conclusion to the finest season of the series.

    Season 3 was a whopper of a year for Smallville. With such fine examples as "Exile", "Phoenix", "Relic", "Shattered", "Whisper", "Crisis", "Legacy", and the finest of all them, "Memoria", "Covenant" is a rousing and quite ominous conclusion to a dark and creatively successful season.

    In fact, "Covenant" is one of the best episodes of the series. This bold and unabashedly dark episode leaves a cliffhanger for everybody, and the result is a stirring and nail-biting summerlong wait.

    The story revolves around the mysterious woman Kara, who claims to be from Krypton and invites Clark to join her in their acceptances of their true destinies. Of course, Jonathan and Martha are skeptical and downright suspicious of the girl. When her powers continue to come forward, with sometimes devastating consequences, Clark is convinced she is indeed from Krypton but does not want to join her given her less-than-moral behavior.

    But when Kara's behavior is truly explained, Clark is repulsed but also resigned to Jor-El's power over him. He accepts Jor-El's invitation with unknowingly devastating consequences with Jonathan. Finally, a mysterious marking appears on the Kent farm -- something which will be revealed in a fantastic fashion during the Season 4 premiere.

    But that's far from it -- Clark testifies against Lionel, who is now in jail. This leads to trouble for Lex and Chloe -- so wonderfully presented in the final sequences of the episode. Actually, this final sequence may be my favorite of the series -- of course, soundtracked with opera (perfect).

    Smallville is an entertaining series that is sometimes (unfortunately) a bit uneven -- but when this show is good, it is nearly unbeatable. "Covenant" is Smallville at its most exceptional -- with fantastic performances, convincing writing and plot development, and pivotal, nail-biting sequences that are artistically tasteful and entertainingly successful. "Covenant" is one of the best episodes of the series.
  • OH NO! Chloe is dead! The hottest chick is gone.

    This was a fantastic episode. We finnaly now know why Clark and Lex become enemies. I can't believe that Chloe is now dead. I always hated her character, but she was so hot. Lana moving away was a fantastic idea, and I really hope that she stays over in Paris. I loved the ending, with the music playing, Jonathan and Lex nearly dying and Chloe's departure from Smallville via death. Linoel is now one of hte top bad guys ever, the way he tries to get rid of the people who put him in jail. If the new season keeps this up, then I say the show is finally getting better.
  • After a very dark season this has setup the next season nicely.

    This season has travelled through some pretty dark places, even so, I was still wondering how the break with Lex would occur.

    And I wasn't really convinced when Clark found Lex's "CK" room, that that would be enough to cause the split. I mean, he already knew that it existed in one form or another. But it seems the writers felt it was, so, so be it.

    And "Kara" the cousin from California. She was pretty transparent, even my 11 year old picked that she was a fake and not from Krypton.

    But what I found astonishing, was rewriting the essential nature of Jor-El. I don't ever remember him being a sinister figure in the backgound pulling the strings in Kal-El's development..not in the comics, TV series or movies.

    Even so all the things that happened in this ep. were pivotal to the series so far and into the future.

    I knew poor Chloe would have to come to a sticky end - great shame 'cause I really liked her.

    The last 5 mintues were shocking and absolutely terrific, and completely made up for the fairly large holes in the plot that I mentioned above.

    A great last ep of the season.
  • Great Finale

    This episode was all around great, but the best part by far was the last sequence. Chloe and her Dad presumably getting killed in the explosion, Lex getting poisoned, and with Lionel getting his head shaved in prison, it was like three great characters were killed: Lex, Chloe, and Lionel's hair. Seriously, though, it was very well done, and provided plenty of cliffhangers for the next season.
  • A great episode with enough cliffhangers to fill the Grand Canyon!

    This truly is a great episode of smallville. It starts of with Kara meeting Clark and Clark thinking (again!) that he is not the only person on Earth from Krypton.

    This shows that the writers of Smallville really know how to write a season finale.
    It leaves the audience with enough questions to make them wanna watch the next season. And what a season it will be.

    What will season 4 mean for Smallville?

    Will Clark survive? Will he return to Smallville? Will Lex survive? Will Chloe survive? Will Lionel get off scot-free? Will Lana return to Smallville? Will Lex and Clark become friends again? Will Johnathon Kent Survive? Will Clark and Lana reunite?

    This episode is a masterpiece and one of the best season finales i have seen for any show.
  • Boom!

    Things come to a head in Smallville when Kara, a beautiful girl (guest star Adrianne Palicki) with superpowers, who claims to be from Krypton, comes to entice Clark (Tom Welling) to fulfill his destiny. Overwhelmed, Clark turns to his parents (John Schneider, Annette O\'Toole) for advice but is shocked when Kara forces Jonathan to finally reveal the deal he made with Jor-El. Also, Clark makes a discovery that ultimately redefines his relationship with Lex (Michael Rosenbaum), and Clark\'s relationship with Lana (Kristin Kreuk) takes a final turn.

    Episode Highlights
    The girl Kara in this episode turns out not to be from Krypton, but the original comic book version of Kara is Superman\'s cousin Supergirl from Krypton. In the 80\'s she was killed in the Crisis on Infinite Earth\'s mini series where the multi-verse was cut down to one Earth.

    Recently Kara has been reintroduced to comics in Superman/Batman #8 written by none other than Smallville\'s Jeph Loeb.

    It seems as though Lionel has decided to seek revenge for his murder arrest as Chloe goes into a house that explodes right before our eyes, and Lex Luthor collapses from an apparent poison. To make matters worse Jonathan has been zapped by Jor-El, Clark is now in Jor-El\'s hands, Pete\'s moving out of state, and Lana is moving to Paris. Clark ended his friendship with Lex before the house blew up and Lex was poisoned. Not a good week for Smallville, and to make matters even worse we have to wait till next season to see what becomes of everyone.
  • An amazing conclusion to the darkest season.

    This last episode of season 3 is very good since it let us learn about what kind of person is Jor-El. Also, the relationship between lex and Clark makes the first step toward where they will stand in the future. But the episode would not be that great if it wasn't for the last montage who really is among the most dramatic moment of the whole serie. The only real downside of this episode is how unsettle the things are between Clark and Lana. For god sake, why is there always something so insignifiant to keep him from telling his secret. This time, he his interupted by the fact that lana sees Kara in the field. You got to be kidding me...Because of this little scene, they wait another year to be together while they're still very in love. Sound silly to me.
