Which may say a lot more about me than about the show.
Okay, here's a thought.
M and G are *okay* with Clark breaking into ATMs, robbing, wandering around clubs, beating up people, but okay, he *doesn't get laid*? There's something disturbingly after-school specially when sex is the *real* evil. And possibly the only un-illegal thing he could be doing in his life of bizarrely restrained debauchery.
Anyway, nothing useful, I want to see the arc and ponder the many, many ways Lana makes me want to spork things--random things at that. Perhaps her. Just. Go. Away.
Hmm. Apparently, my Lana-bitterness is alive and well.
The entire RedK thing is becoming strange, what with the entire fact that the writers seem to be on a kind of fannish crack about what it actually does. Red to Rush, there was some overlapped consistency of behavior, and I'll buy the theory that it's important how Clark was feeling *at the time* he put it on, as that decides what parts of his personality come red-glazed. He was rebellious during his first thinger, and his second, he was all in the adrenaline zone. Okay, I can work with that.
But what the *hell* is with the boy now? ClarkLex list had some excellent theories, but it comes down to the fact that M and G simply don't want to deal with a sexually active Clark and we have to somehow work around that. Both earlier experiences showed Clark practically going down on anyone who was vaguely sexually attractive, but this one--and let me get this straight--takes them *clubbing* and goes home alone?
See, I get it. He's Saving Himself For Lana, in a Very Special and Very Moving Episode Where They Give Themselves to Each Other, or Almost Do It and Then Stop to Preserve Their Friendship. Or whatever flavor of the week we're going for.
On the other hand....
Lex is hot. It's depressing on some level that he's sunburned, cut up, recovering from malaria, and pretty much at this point certifiably insane, and I'm still staring at his bare skin thinking, God is good. And man, did they give writers the out of a lifetime. And if someone within the next six months *doesn't* write how Clark's alien penis magically cures Lex of his secondary personality and brings him back to sanity, I'm going to be so bitterly disappointed you have no idea. I may have to write it myself.
Denialville has *never* had it so good.
Other things of note:
SuperJonathan. I didn't start laughing until I realized this was a Serious Plot Point. Because--SuperJonathan. Like putting nitrus in a tractor, people. This just can't end well.
Helen. One day, I'm sure your actions will make some kind of sense. Okay, I'm not sure of that at all, but I'm so glad I hated you early on and suspected you of evil. You totally lived up to my expectations.
If Lex doesn't go completely evil Real Soon Now, we have to assume it's because they have him locked up somewhere he can write letters home with crayons. Jesus Christ, it's like aversion therapy to vaginas.
God, I love this show. *happy*
Now must read the LJ recaps that will explore this stuff, since well, I'm pretty much left staring at Lex all naked and sickly and not a little completley nuts, thinking...
*sighs* Stupid fannish obsessions. Two at once. Grrr.
Tomorrow! The tale of the Haggling in Mexico! Or, how it is that we weren't killed on the street while staring blankly at a map.
