Woulda been cool if someone pointed up to the sky when Clark was flying toward Apokolips: "Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird! No it's a plane! Is that a man? No It looks like a Superman!

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.

To be clear, did she left because she was written out or was she written out, because she left the show?

I'm just glad the damn show is over and done with.

Maybe in a few more years someone else will give it a shot, and make it something worthy as a Superman serial. If and when they do, they can always look back at Smallville as an example of what not to do. So I guess it serves some kind of purpose.

God knows why she she left as a principle, but then she came back for a three episode story arc the following season after Clark and Lois started inching toward each other, which made nearly absolutely no sense as she was stealing super powers from a mad clone of Lex Luthor. We thought, "hey cool, now Clark can't dent her pelvis" but her powers quickly became Kryptonite based and her presence was completely toxic to him now literally rather than just figuratively.

Oddly she sat out on Zod's occupation. Even after we saw a year into the future where the Kryptonians won and held the earth where the only thing that stood against them was Green Arrow and Chloe.

As a person who doesn't even like Superman as a character, I have enjoyed most of the ten year run of this show and thought they gave it a fitting sendoff.

I haven't seen much Smallville, but what I have seen was was boring mess, and this was no exception.

Enjoyed the last 15 seconds though.

Kristen Kruek wanted to leave the show after season seven when her contract expired. However, due to the strike cutting the season down, she came back for a five episode arc in season 8 to, presumably, make up for the episodes she otherwise would have been in (plus some extra).

Not really.
There were much better Smallville-episodes than this finale.

Re: Smallville10x21&22 "Finale" Discuss/Grade

I think this is the worst finale I've ever seen of a show that's ending. A whole lot of Clark doing nothing, stupid angst, and then what, 10 minutes of Superman?And what was up with the Jonathan Kent ghost?, and the whole "remember Smallville, it made you into the person you are" was really lame.

The comic part seven years in the future was ridicilous. Yeah, basically tells the world who Superman is, not like anyone will be able to tie the dots...
And they still are'nt married seven years?, what?, come on.

I'm really glad this stopped showing on tv a couple of years ago, because if I had to watch 10 seasons of this, I would have gone insane. But since it did afterall give us Superman (albeit only for 10 minutes), I'll give it a Kal-El (Below Average), instead of a BIZARRO (Poor)

And President-elect Luthor in 2018? Come on, that's not even a presidential election year. He would've been inaugurated in January 2017, but why call him President-elect?

For Pete's sake, this is the same show that depicted state representatives of a bicameral legislature as being relevant.
