^ After the ratings for Friday's ep even I think that they really need to make this season epic because it'll be the last one. The demos were horrible.

Well, the show has been on for nine years. That's almost unchartered territory for a fantasy/sci-fi show.

That shitty season finale last season did nothing to help them.

So, wait. Zod and Friends are clones? Was this established in the episode or is it just fan theory?

Also, is Metallo already Metallo? When Lois stomped on his foot, he didn't really react to it.

If Souders and Petersen really do have a master plan for the entire season, I'm all for it. I just hope it doesn't result in having to sacrifice Chloe for Clark to become Superman.
I have a feeling though that is the route they're going to take.
That idea has been around for years. End of season 3 - house explodes with Chloe in it. She must be dead! Nope.

It came up again, most predominately, during last season when it was widely reported that two cast members would die, one of which being male and the other's gender being a secret.

It was implied by the dialogue in the episode (they had undergone blood tests immediately before the battle) and through spoilers.

Remember folks, we've still got ... the Wonder Twins.
How the heck would that encouraging to anyone???!!!

I think some would cheer Guy Gorman or Nuclear Man turning up because....well... its an established character.... though not good ones... umm... or likely even really resembling them... or even called by that name... but Smallville's Producers have discovered they can market the show to the online fandom this way...

Even when they have actually done a fairly straight on depiction of a character (minus age issues) they kill them off... ...telling us that it actually his older brother... using his own brother's name as a nickname.... Sounds like Michael Jackson's kids, He nicknamed his first son Michael Junior - Prince... than decided to really name the second one that as a legal name.... so he calls the second kid Blanket instead.....

I wondered how long it would be before Miss Teschmacher knelt before Zod.

No, he's still just an ordinary human in "Savior".

Re: Smallville 9x01 "Savior" - Discuss/Grade <SPOILERS>

Procutus PM'd me a question, and I hope he doesn't mind me posting it here, because I think it is an interesting question and I too would like to hear what you all think.

Brent;

I'm confused; how do you figure that Lois only went one year into the future? I thought the ring was designed to send someone into the 31st Century; hence Rokk telling Clarke to send Doomsday into the future so that the Legion could deal with him.

Your theory makes sense from the point of view of Lois' dream and the length of the season, but why did she only go forward a year?
I'm dumbfounded on this one too. My guesses are either that the wearer of the ring can control the time field, and thus Lois didn't know how and she misused it and it only sent her 1 year into the future. This makes a lot of sense since Clark is able to use it freely to travel into the past and all, so the ring wearer must be able to control where they go.

Or, maybe the ring wearer has to be "super powered" to use it correctly? Has any non super power being used it before?

Or, what if time is now screwed up and there is no more future beyond one year? There's an idea to chew on. And that Lois was destined to go to the future and to come back with that knowledge so the knot in time gets fixed and the future restored.

Remember, time was altered when the Persuader came back and destroyed Clark's Phantom Zone crystal there in the barn. He was supposed to use it on Chloe/Brainiac to banish Brainiac into the PZ. What if the reason they didn't know about Chloe was because the crystal would not actually have separated them and he'd have banished Chloe to the PZ as well as Brainiac? And Clark would have still had that PZ crystal to use to banish Doomsday too (as well as the one in the Fortress). Thus he would never have actually killed Doomsday, thusly never activating the Orb and creating clones of dozens of Kryptonians that are now on Earth, who bring about the destruction of everything.

I love a good time travel puzzle, I hope I am right about this. It will just make this season all the more fun as I piece things together.
