When Clark opens the box from his mother containing "the suit", during his close up you see the superman shield reflected in his eyes. However if this was a true reflection, the symbol would be backwards. See more »

Lois Lane: [to Perry White] If you remember, I'm the one who said 2012 would just be another Y2K scare, and I was right. Not to fear, White... If there's a scandal in the Pentagon, yours truly *will* be the one to find it.

The best Smallville finale since Season 1!
14 May 2010 | by (Puerto Rico) – See all my reviews

After Season 8's horrible finale, this episode sure was a sight for sore eyes! Smallville didn't disappoint at all and we finally got to see some things that will make comics fans jump up and punch the air, as I'll admit I did! Sincerely this episode is the best one for all of the actors as each one gave awesome performances! Especially Tom Welling and Callum Blue.

I'm going to share with you guys what i said right after the episode ended: "Tom Welling is the best Superman since Christopher Reeve". I'm on the road to becoming a great director so maybe it doesn't mean much now, even though in the future it hopefully will, if i say Im extremely proud of everyone in the Smallville cast and crew because this season and especially in the finale they gave us the Superman we've always wanted to see.

Can't wait for season 10!!!
