Have an insanely rare post from me that actually involves Smallville in a positive light!
And can I point out that after the ‘I love you’ from Clark stopped Lois from killing him that Lois, LIKE CAS after Dean’s ‘I need you,’ was STILL BEING MIND CONTROLLED. In fact, she actually tried to kill Clark again after a bit. And that in no way lessens the power of Clark and Lois’ love for each other in that scene.
Just saying, because of all the people who were weirdly mad at the thought that the tablet broke Naomi’s control and not Dean’s ‘I need you.’
Very cool comparison anyway. I love this trope :)
