Re: Smallville 10x04 (#200!!!) "Homecoming" - Discussion and Spoilers

Man, it's too bad we can't watch that "future" version of the show instead, because those characters were actually pretty fun and exciting to watch!

It turns out Welling can actually pull off a pretty cool Clark when he doesn't have to be so damn morose and insecure all the time.

And just think, it only took us 10 short years to find out!

Shucks! Missed another episode! Oh, well. I'll find time to watch it somehow. However, based on the comments in this thread, I guess I didn't miss much!

Actually it was excellent. It was slow the first 30 minutes or so but there is a lot of great stuff in this episode. Brainiac 5(James Marsters) was great, there were nice moments with Clark at Jonathan's grave and the moment with Greg Arkin was a nice touch. The future stuff was awesome and it was nice to look back at the Torch & the flashback with Lana. Great stuff with Oliver Queen. This episode was one of my favorites.

Wasn't Greg the bugboy killed? I seemed to recall an air-conditioner or something like that being dropped on him following his and Clark's fight. It seemed like it would've squashed him pretty good, left him pretty fucked up, or at the very least his actions wouldn't have made him very available for a high-school reunion in eight years.
I just saw the Bug Boy episode on Thursday. This big heavy thing falls on Greg Arkin and then dozens of tiny bugs come out from underneath it and they scurry away. I guess he turned into bugs and later reconstituted himself.

Re: Smallville 10x04 (#200!!!) "Homecoming" - Discussion and Spoilers

Okay that was boderline awesome and everyone knows that I love Brainy right? I loved all the scenes between Brainy and Clark, and I told you guys that the episode that Jonathon died was a crucial turning point for Clark and the start of his dark self doubt arc. Hopefully now he really does understand what a douche he's been and will take what Brainy has shown him to heart.

The future scenes were pretty sweet, and oh in case anyone was wondering...yes I did cry a couple of times. The first was when Brainy introduces himself to Clark and shows him the ring and the second time I teared up was when Future Clark meets his younger self. I knew that Clark would think of his older self as stuck up...no Clark, you're not stuck up, it's called being a leader and having confidence in yourself.

Re: Smallville 10x04 (#200!!!) "Homecoming" - Discussion and Spoilers

I loved how Brainiac in his actions with the guidance counselor basically said with all the S1-S4 freak of the week non-sense...It is time to move one, we are done with this.

As I said it was kinda slow then picked up with the Brainiac 5 reveal. Lot of nice moments here and hopefully the rest of the season with pick up where this leaves off and doesn't go backward.

Re: Smallville 10x04 (#200!!!) "Homecoming" - Discussion and Spoilers

I should add though I would have written this episode differently and included Chloe...and yes that would mean that the entire season would be differently structured. Lois really didn't belong in the Smallville scenes. They didn't have Pete's name tag there or a mention of him which I found amusing.

Re: Smallville 10x04 (#200!!!) "Homecoming" - Discussion and Spoilers

Pete didn't graduate from Smallville High so I am fine with no mention of him...it does suck no new Chloe scenes...fine with the flash backs...same with Lana.
I think they dragged the whole knowing who Lois is and her not realizing that no one should cause she only went to the school for 5 days way too long...I am fine with her being there.
It was great they established the brotherhood between Kal-El & Brainiac...both created by Jor-El. It wasn't perfect...but nothing on TV is...it is my fav 4th ep & right up there with "Reckoning" & "Memoria" over all.

Yeah I actually found it interesting how they "Smallvilleized" Brainy and actually made it work within the context of the show.

I prefer how Smallville has done Brainiac...This was a very nice thing I hope they get Marsters back to do something later...maybe Brainiac 5 can be involved with the Booster Gold story later in the season.

Michael is from the 26th century though I think so I'm not sure how. You know what would have made this episode even more perfect? If they had Future Lois say to Clark "Should I call Bruce?"

Re: Smallville 10x04 (#200!!!) "Homecoming" - Discussion and Spoilers

Brainiac would be aware of Booster taking a ring and let it play out till he needs to step in...I really want to see Marsters again as B5.

A Batman nod would be great but they(PSW) don't seem to willing to slip it in.

Nope can't violate the all imposing embargo! Booster doesn't use the same time traveling technology that the Legion uses (which Brainy invented by the way). In my "Smallville" re-write that I'll post, Clark encounters Brainy and the Legion much earlier than he did in the actual show and they actually make reoccurring appearances.

For half a second that's exactly who I thought Oliver was going to talk about when he brought up JFK.... Which in itself was also a nice direction to go in.

What I am amazed about is that Welling knows!

Welling knows that his Clark is a Deush which is why his Superman was looking down his nose at the boy in the elevator.

Hope renewed.
