Re: Smallville: 10x01 "Lazarus" - Discussion and Spoilers

I finally caught the episode. I thought it was pretty good. Mind you, I haven't kept up with Smallville in years and the last full episode I saw was the "Absolute Justice" TV movie type episode that aired a while ago. With that said, I was a little confused at what was going on but I was able to pick up on things.

I think it's really cool that we're seeing the Lex clones angle, which I always thought was a cool element from the comics, and the little Alexander clone did remind me of young Spock in The Search for Spock -- I'm sure that was probably intentional on the producers' end to have Alexander grow exponentially but with his hair. Meaning Rosenbaum could conceivably return if he wanted to without shaving his head (which is neat). As much as I enjoyed the actor playing the older Lex clone, that scene would have played a lot better with Rosenbaum as Lex. I like what they're doing with the whole Lex clone plot arc, but if we don't see Rosenbaum as Lex at one point or another it's going to be a disappointment regardless of what they do with the arc in my opinion.

It was really tantalizing to see the red and blue Superman suit and to see Clark approach it with a sense of wanting to wear it, but then ultimately disappointing to see Jor-El snatch it up and then store it in the Fortress. I have a feeling Clark is going to have to prove himself this season to be worthy of wearing the suit. It's kind of frustrating because at this point I just want him to wear the damn suit, but I get what they're going for thematically. Trying to drag it out as much as possible to sustain tension and suspense.

I think I might actually watch this season in its entirety, since it is the final season after all.

You didn't get excited about seeing Darkseid!? I know I did. I didn't think it would happen this soon.

Yeah, Darkseid is cool. I guess I'm more of a Lex fan.

FIVE MINUTE SMALLVILLE

EXT - Metropolivocerville - Dawusk.

Clark falls 50 stories from the top of The Daily Planet building. Despite being impaled with Blue-Kryptonite. and thus unpowered, he lands on the ground relatively intact. Lois find him.

LOIS: "Oh Clark?! Clark?! I love you! Don't die, or at least stay dead long enough for me to play homage to the "death of Superman" comic page! Hey, what's this blue thing?"

:yoink:

LOIS: It's shiny! I'll toss it over there and run-off, 'k thx bye!

EXT - Ethereal Purgatory Farmfield - Daytime and Partly Aurora Borealisly

CLARK: What? Where am I? What am I doing here? Am I dead? Won't somebody SAAAAAVVVVEEEE ME?!

JARNELL: Clark. I've been telling you for ten years now, stop being a douche, accept your destiny and become the hero people want you to be.

CLARK: What people? The people of the Earth?

JARNELL: No. The three million people who've been watching you and putting up with your crap the last nine years.

CLARK: Oh, them. Eh, who needs them. I've got a contract. No flights. No tights.

Jarnell: Dammit, I'm sick of hearing that. That's it. I'm cutting you off. 'k thx bye!

EXT - Metropolivocerville

CLARK: (Wakes up. ) Huh. That was odd. I was in a dream that I was in a cornfield. Thankful there was no Kevin Costner. Well, I better go run off and take care of some things!

:SUPERSPEED!:

LOIS: (double clicks her mouse to Clark's super-speed.)

INT - SOMEWHERE - Darkfilter Time Of Day

CHLOE: Clark! How's it going?! What are you doing here?!

CLARK: My dad warned me, when I heard about Lex I came!

CHLOE: :stifles a laugh:

CLARK: What? Why do you always laugh when I say that? It's important that I come before Lex.

CHOLE: (Rolls on floor, laughing)

INT - Spooky Lab Set #237c

TESS wakes up and peels a slab of gelled cum of her face. This causes her only mild disturbance. She finds a bunch of Lex clone pods, a younger version of Lex and an older version of Lex. She's somehow less disturbed about this than she is on how she woke up here, naked, a few minutes ago.

OLD LEX: Hi! Lex is cloning myself.

TESS: Can I say it?

OLD LEX: Say what?

TESS: You know.

OLD LEX: No, what?

TESS: Send in the clones!

OLD LEX: That's it, I'm lighting you and all my clones on fire. 'k thnx, bye!

INT - Dark Torture Dungeon Set 445aa

SHOW PRODUCERS: Contractual obligations say that Justin Hartley must appear shirtless at least once every episode whether the scene makes any sense or is relevant. This scene fulfills that obligation. See you next week.

INT - JLA Room - Day

CHLOE (dons a roman helmet): Oh man, the things people will say about this.

CLARK meets up CLONE-LEX

CLARK: Shouldn't you be carrying your brain around in a dish?

CLONE LEX: Hey, I've got very bad genes, okay! It's not like my father grew up to be a handsome man!

CLARK: Well what should we do?

CLONE LEX: What we always do. Have a battle of wits that I'll win with one of my cerebral lobes literally tied behind my back, we'll say things that'll reference things set to come in the mythos, we'll have a pillow fight, I'll die and then a better-looking clone of mine will fight you in 25 episodes. Good?

CLARK: Good.

CLONE LEX: Oh, and I've put your girlfriend in danger and also put some people in Metropolis in danger. Since you've never ran to South America in five seconds, or ran to and from Maine in one second. You can't possibly stop the globe and save Lo...

CLARK: Done and back. What were you saying about me?

CLONE LEX: Shit! And Spider-man 1 was such a good movie, too!

INT, or EXT. Not sure which. - Fortress of Solituide - Daytime, it's always daytime at the north pole.... Sorta.

CLARK: What's this place still doing here? Where's the drowning polar bears? Man, that Al Gore and his scissor lift is full of shit.

JARNELL: Didn't I tell you to stop being a douchebag?! That's it, I'm locking up your favorite clothes!

CLARK: But those are Brandon's.

JARNELL: Whatever. Done.

EXT - KENT FARM - Bright, Sunny, Non-Metropolisian Daytime.

CLARK reads a letter. The next morning. Inside there's a letter from Lois. Who's in Africa. Standing in the middle of a dune. She got there, and mailed a letter, in less than a day.

BO KENT: Sup Clark.

CLARK: Am I dreaming, hallucinating, or did I OD on my Viccodin?

BO: Some of both. Remember when I told you you were a good boy, that your real father was an asshole and that I'm the one that's raised you to be good, moral and kind?

CLARK: Yeah.

BO slaps him in the back of the head.

BO: Well maybe you should watch the first Five Seasons on Blu-Ray :to camera: Available at CW.COM! :to Clark: And re-fresh your memory. Get over yourself and become fucking Superman!

CLARK: It's the last season! Just give me 20 more episodes!

BO: Fuck. This show's going to end like Voyager isn't it?

They seem to have taken the "Superman Returns" suit and re-did it to the appropriate bright red color instead of the awful dried-blood maroon.
That suit shown was 100% unaltered.

It's naturally brighter red but Singer put a filter when filming so that it was darker.

Smallville crew just used a prop since they needed something for the scene. The suit will get modifications behind the scenes even though in the show it's in ice.
Correct. It is 100% exactly the same. Unaltered prop.

Re: Smallville: 10x01 "Lazarus" - Discussion and Spoilers

Also, I was a little confused over the Clark/Jonathan scene. I thought it offered a tender moment, however they didn't explain why or how Clark was able to just "see" Jonathan. I know Clark needed that type of moral boost, but it just kind of seemed arbitrary and to come out of nowhere. I was half-expecting Clark to have seen him in that near-death purgatory type of "inbetween" that Clark was in at the beginning of the episode, but it didn't happen. That would have made more sense than Clark suddenly having a hallucination of his father just for the convenience of the plot.

Okay, but as a friend of mine pointed out, how come he hasn't appeared previously when Clark needed help in the past? Why now? It was just a random appearance that didn't have a lot of thematic credibility or reason. I have no problem with ambiguity, but that was too much for my taste.

Re: Smallville: 10x01 "Lazarus" - Discussion and Spoilers

He's appearing again later in the season...and I assume Jonathon is who sent Clark back from limbo earlier in the season. The suit shown in the episode is indeed an unaltered prop from "Superman Returns" the last comment from Welling was that he had not seen the suit that he will be wearing and Peterson and Saunders at comic con said Tom would be fitted with a "version" of the suit shown in the episode but they talk too much and end up contradicting themselves so who the fuck knows.

Well, I hope they modify the suit. The suit as worn by Routh would be very awkward looking on Welling if it wasn't specifically tailored. Routh has a much narrower frame whereas Welling has a much broader frame.

I'm glad that I'm not the only one who likes the Luthor clone angle.
