Well, I have my doubts that Geoff Johns actually wrote his Smallville episodes to begin with. Other than a story outline and first draft, I find it unlikely given his schedule that he'd sit through doing multiple drafts.
The WGA has stringent rules about who gets script and story credit. No, every word might not be his, but for him to get a teleplay credit, he had to write a certain percentage of the script.

True, but there are examples of "known" writers having their scripts re-written to various degrees and the rewriters not being given credit in order for the "know" writer to get the credit (presumably for promotional purposes).

Add to that that nearly every script gets a rewrite/pass by the head writers of a show, and, usually, regardless of the changes made, the initial writer gets the credit.

I can see the Smallville writing staff working it where Johns gets sole credit.

Not saying that did happen, but that I can see them doing that.

the writers room and the producers.

If they don't rewrite scripts they become redundant and fired... Not that producers can fire themselves, but you get the idea, even if they receive the most perfect script in the universe, they still have to justify their salary even if they know that they are fucking up a surething.

That video makes "Smallville" more epic than it ever was!

8/10 for the episode.

10/10 for the final few scenes at the Daily Planet.

The slo-mo closing scene to John Williams' score was absolutely epic!
