No offense, people, but y'all amuse me.
By Smallville's standards, this episode was nearly superb. I mean, the entire Season 10 sucked. All of it. The entire Darkseid arc was laughable, and frankly, so was Callum Blue's Zod.
To me, Smallville was never REALLY Superman anyway. Jor-El, an invisible god from an ice cave? Clark Kent and Lex Luthor best buddies? Lois Lane living on the Kent farm? Killing off Jimmy Olsen before Clarke became Supes? Come on! Smallville was never meant to be a Superman prequel or anything...
It was a decent closure of a bad TV show for teenage kids.
P.S. Erica Durance was a good Lois. Far better than Kate fucking Bosworth.
