I know it isn't what they were saying neccesarily, but you could almost interpret it that defeating Zod in that way is something the writers are saying his dad would be proud of him for.
Which I just don't like.
Man, i'd really have loved just one line or two where Clark expresses to his mother his regret that he couldn't find another way.
Have her trying to console him that he had no other choice. But have him shaking his head and saying that his Dad told him he needed to decide whether to be a good character or bad, and that he'd blurred that line and that wasn't something he ever wanted to do again.
How simple would that have been?
When Martha said
"your Father would be so Proud ".
She was talking about well Clark shouldered the burden That Jonathan knew he would one day have to carry .
