Question: Thanks to you, I have become a Veronica Mars fan! I'll split the three bucks with you. Or I will settle for some Smallville scoop.

Answer: Lots of good buzz surrounding January's "Hydro" episode, which is directed by Tom Welling and features, as y'all know, Tori Spelling as a water-based gossip columnist. In addition to being tons of fun, I hear the episode features a pretty major (and surprising) kiss between Clark and ****.
