I can't believe no one's started a thread yet. Glad there was no kryptonite villain this week, but thought the violence was a bit much. Really, did we need to see Ryan's stepfather drop so many people with the shotgun? And why didn't he blink at shooting his wife but just dumped Lex out of the car? Loved the use of 'It's Not Easy' at the end, I love that song. And something my costume designer wife pointed out to me, they always dress Clark in blues and reds, and Lex in blacks and greys. Interesting.
