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

I was surprised to see Callum Blue here, but I thought he did well, I still can't shake his character from Dead Like Me though, I was waiting for him to drop a few F bombs lol

Actually I'm of the opinion that the voice we heard from the Orb was Terrance Stamp as Jor-El as re The dagman's theory.

I hope he gets to fly soon too.

Will they finally be dropping that "no flights" rule?

Maybe her corpse won't rot now that it's away from the blue K.

That's how I'm used to thinking of him too.

Anyway, thanks for the discussion folks. I assummed that Lois went a thousand years into the future because of the Legion ring.

As much as I love Callum Blue, he is woefully miscast as Zod. I hope he grows into the role, but I don't think I can take him seriously as a villain.

I am so totally lost...

What the hell was the whole Zod, army, Tess plot? I didn't follow any of it. It made no sense to me.

I am guessing we'll learn more as the season progresses.

"Every fool knows you need a contingency plan."

Tucker. Buffy. The Prom.

Of course, one has to be economic with the contingency plans or you'll have 12 Zod, or proZod factions all trying to control the earth at the same time. An orderly queue seems wise? like how soldiers used to march slowly in phlanaxes towards lines of musket fire and replace the guys in front of them that got shot. This lot, in the army fatigues, were not going to be tapped until the rut with Zods Kid doomsday had completely run it's course for fear of stepping on each others toes and and overzodding the world domination, that if either side won out that they didn't have to worry about more sleeper Zod contingency plans to take over earth and kill Kal El.

but who ever is responsible for these soldierboys cheated.

"It" bent the rules by using Tess as "their" agent to get rid of the drift wood and bump them to the head of the dogpile of Zod wannabes.

Not that Zod's missus turning up at the same time last year wasn't confusing or stepping on toes?

^ It does look like Tess has become "Season 5 Sandoval".

(I wonder how many people will get that.)

This Zod may not actually BE a villain.

As I said in a prior post, this is a clone duplicate of Zod taken from before he became a villain. From the time when he was a war hero on Krypton. If and when he finds out about the original General Zod, about how he rebelled against the Science Council and was banished to the Phantom Zone and later escaped to possess Lex Luthor, caused Metropolis' "Dark Thursday" and later had his phantom essence destroyed, this Major Zod may be quite horrified himself. He may not be destined to walk the same path as the original Zod.

Which is quite possibly why he has no super powers?

Sandoval rocked so hard, but the rest of EFC was pretty dire.

I mean they had a guy with a third wing of DNA on his helix who was supposed to be super smart or super powered but he turned into a very ordinairy guy very quickly. It's like TV writers don't even watch their own shows?

It's pretty obvious they do, in fact, gain their powers soon enough. We saw a SuperZod in Lois' flash forward and the "Ninja Assassin" clearly had her powers when she traveled back in time.

As someone else mentioned, it's likely just a lack of them absorbing enough solar energy so far. They are, for all intents and purposes, newborns afterall.

Oh certainly.

Left with free will they get to chose loyalty to Zod or not. If they chose to follow l'll Zod then they'll be given powers. It's like how those rotc kids are just given cap guns when they march from one side of the football field to other and back again.

An average episode... not a very good start for the season for our friend ClarkBatmanSupermanNeo.

The babes were hot but too dressed and boy is the guy playing Zod really lame. Really bad casting there.
I hope he improves and never mention the Kneel line again... he makes me cringe when he says it.

BAG was good. After his work in TSCC he's really becoming a favorite of mine.

Sandoval's motivations inexplicably changed on a weekly basis. I have more faith in the character of Tess.
