    No Lana wasn't holding Clark back, Clark was the only person holding himself back. Lana's little speech was just the writers copping out and trying to give the Lana haterz what they've always wanted - Lana to exit and admit she was holding Clark back.

    Or maybe it was symbolic of Al Gough & co. exiting and that they have been holding Clark back with their poor writing......

    I think she was a good part of the reason. He wanted always to protect her. And wanting to make her life perfect. He was over obsessed. Look how many times he did not do anything to lex even though his bf Chloe was threatened with death because Lana might get hurt. Yes, she was holding him back because the way he is written, he would worry about LL getting hurt. And look at the difference with Lois. She does not know his secret, but knows he is meant for something better and is pushing him big time.

    As with all things, having Lana has its advantages and disadvantages. The Martian Manhunter did say Clark's humanity if both a strength and a weakness. Loving Lana is part of Clark's humanity. My impression is that there are more advantages than disadvantages in having a wife like Lana for Clark. Lana should be able to support rather than hinder Clark's mission. I would like to see Clana work out rather than fail in Season 8.

    Seriously, the writers just fed the Lana haters more to feed on by having Lana say she's holding him back! It's compete BS.

    Who was the one that stopped Clark's from listening to Jor-El due to being told all season that Jor-El was wrong? MARTHA, JONATHAN.

    Who was the one that kept not listening to Jor-El in season three? CLARK.

    Who was the one that stopped Clark from competing Jor-El's mission in the season four premiere to build the FOS? MARTHA.

    Who was the one that stopped Clark's training in season five's premiere by sneaking into the FOS? CHLOE.

    Who was the one that stopped Clark's training in season seven due to having to be taken care of? KARA.

    So, yeah. Lana didn't take part in any of those things indirectly, yet she's the one holding Clark back? Whatever!

    I agree with eas...Clark used Lana as an excuse to himself and, she DID give him plenty of opportunities to move on, but he didn't.

    It's not Lana's fault. S6 would have been the perfect time for him to start embracing his destiny. But then he wanted to catch/kill all the Zoners, which I can understand. But by the time he defeated Bizarro the first time, he should have begun.

    He obviously didn't learn his lesson from "Reckoning", or else he wouldn't have gotten back together with Lana.

    She was used as nothing more than a stall tatic after S4 . And No. You cannot compare SV to "Superman III." Clark was already Superman and he was already in love with Lois Lane. He was Lana's friend in the film, not boyfriend. Yes, Lana held Clark back.

    Notice how the blanket was left outside in "Action" but it was present in "Crusade"?
