I'm not skipping any episode, there might be some vital piece of information we need for the season.

It sounds wacky at first, but maybe it will be fun.
I (almost) always enjoy alternate universe stories. It was always a treat when DC did their "imaginary stories" (that's what they were called before they became known as "elseworlds) issues of Superman or other comics titles.

I was waiting for that all episode since the Slade Wilson character in the comic books has just one eye. I guess he lost it in the explosion.


Elena Satine is insanely hot.

Re: Smallville: 10x09 "Patriot" - Discussion and Spoilers

Good episode. I don't read the synopses, so I never know what to expect. Aquaman was a big surprise. Then there was that hot redhead in the swimsuit who showed up with him. I did a George Takei style "Oh My!" when I saw her. Then I eagerly awaited the guest credits to find out who it was. I recognized the name... Elena Satine. Haven't seen her in anything, but her name and pics are popping up here and there. Anyhoo... Love her character. She is good for Arthur. On that I agree. They make a good couple.

A few other points...

- When Arthur was held captive, I wondered for a second if he was going to get his hand cut off.

- I'm surprised that Clark wasn't killed in the explosion. He was vulnerable due to exposure to the kryptonite. He should have been blown to bits. Then again, maybe he was and then reconstituted himself like the T-1000 once the complex was destroyed and he was safely away from the kryptonite.

It wice to see Mera on Smallville. She's another DC character I never expected to see on the show.

Speaking of Chloe, do you ever get the impression the producers don't care about the character or are happy about having her back? Everything with them is Lois and Clark.
As it should be.

Back when Lois was first introduced, Chloe was such a big part of Clark's life that I wondered how they could possibly get him with Lois, but they did. The development of their relationship has been handled quite well.

...and Chloe isn't a "real" character in the Superman mythos...
She is now. She's popular and she's been added to the comics (I got her first issue a few weeks ago). A lot of supporting characters weren't around from the beginning and have been introduced this way.

I wouldn't be so quick to blame Alison for not wanting to commit to a full season to the series, I think she has wanted to depart for the last couple of seasons to be honest and has had nuggets tossed at her liking directing episodes and a reduced contract just to keep her around. I've had a strong feeling that she wanted to leave after the sixth season ended.
Really? Never noticed that.

I liked that scene. Too bad the american audience didn't get the full frontal nudity. I hear they got the edited version where nothing is shown. That's what I like about canadian television. They show everything. For anyone reading this, I am of course kidding. Lois is the only one who saw everything.

They really seemed to step their game up with this episode, I thought it was top notch. I wish they could elevate the regular episodes to the level of the mythology episodes. Interesting interpretation of "Darkseid", I'm curious where they're going to take that.

So at this point are there any "secrets" left? I think all the players know the others and their roles now.

Isn't "mira" Spanish for look? Well I certainly did, looking at the comments it seems I wasn't the only one.

Re: Smallville: 10x09 "Patriot" - Discussion and Spoilers

I thought it was implied quite clearly that Slade or the Registration Act aquired LuthorCorps' Project 33.1 cells designs and we already know that Kryptonite is easily available in the Smallville universe.

It was a good episode until the part where Clark was trapped by those kryptonite bars. The scene cut to the place exploding so how did he manage to get out if he couldnt break through the bars? That whole part messed it up for me

Clark muttered "Man of Steel" so I assume he survived the blast of the rig despite already being somewhat weakened by the Kryptonite bars.

Re: Smallville: 10x09 "Patriot" - Discussion and Spoilers

It was probably just a low amount of Kryptonite, notice that he wasn't on his knees in pain, he was able to stand up right, so it wasn't a real powerful source, probably diluted or something. So he had enough strength to withstand the explosion.

I liked how the bullets ricocheted off him.

I had to double-check but I'm getting scared that I'm starting to be able to detect when Tom Welling directs an episode.

Re: Smallville: 10x09 "Patriot" - Discussion and Spoilers

Didn't care for this episode like I thought I would. It just seemed run-of-the-mill to me when it should've packed more punch.

I don't know why it took Clark so long to tell his colleagues about a planetwide threat. His concern over his own darkness doesn't work for me. I mean, it's Tess and Oliver you're talking about, which this show has explored their dark phases in great detail.

The casting was good. Hogan was a good choice for Slade and I'm glad he got the eyepatch at the end. I hope he cuts loose the next time he shows up. The actress playing Mera fit her wetsuit very well. I wish that Clark would've at least asked who AC and Mera's 'people' were after she made that comment. Or asked AC what's the significance of also going by the name Orin.

Re: Smallville: 10x09 "Patriot" - Discussion and Spoilers

Once again though, we have someone (AC and Merra) who have to encourage Clark to be a hero (he can't do it on his own)

Also, I kinda laughed when the wave of water knocked Clark down lol, the real superman would have still been standing there

I could be mistaken but this was the first time in quite some time I recall us getting to see Clark's "X-Ray Vision." And I miss the handful of times we got to see it as "see-through vision."

Re: Smallville: 10x09 "Patriot" - Discussion and Spoilers

Yep, good point once again Brent. This Clark is so self-centered and filled with self-doubt that he needs other already established heroes to encourage him to become the greatest one. Pretty pathetic if you ask me. How the how is he supposed to inspire future heroes, let alone an entire Legion of them?
