Wow, that was bad.
An hour-and-a-half of everyone telling Clark how awesome he is and that it's his time, so long as he embraces both his human and Kryptonian side (a conflict he's resolved how many times now?). He's ultimately inspired by a Jor-El induced montage of.....himself?

Follow with another "his greatest challenge) foe that is built up over an entire season only to be easily dispensed with in about 2 minutes.

Return of Lex - that is pretty pointless, does next to nothing except kill Tess for no reason and gets his memory wiped...wha??? So he doesn't remember anything, but he's still evil and Clark's Nemesis, just because? Their relationship building over the first seven seasons now means....nothing???

Return of Chloe....that also does nothing.

CGI Superman suit for a couple of minutes.

Major letdown. Hoped the writers could pull something great for the end. Instead got overly forced, excessive attempts the pull your heart strings and another easy-way-out for the "greatest hero ever."
