Why Smallville is Stupid

I suppose spoiler warnings are in order. So, if you haven't seen last night's episode, best avoid this here post.

Killing off Alicia was probably the DUMBEST thing i've ever seen on the show. And there have been some dumb things, like say, the girls becoming witches.

First, and maybe I'm wrong about this, but I don't think a little chloroform would have knocked Alicia out enough for her to have been hung. Second, we get no real explination as to why he killed her, it just happens. If you want to write her out of the show, fine, but come up with something better than strangling a teleporter.

Second...why the hell would Clark risk someone seeing him when he could have just let the empty car crash? I'm pretty certain he could see it was empty, and i don't believe he's so naive that he wouldn't have smelled a set-up, not after the fight he and Alicia had.

Dumb. Dumb. DUMB!

And why does someone else need to know? We lost Pete, I can accept it, but that doesn't mean someone needs to take his place.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is what is routinely known as Jumping The Shark.

You've been warned.

Apologies for the fanboyish nature of this post.
