Storyline

In Smallville's two-part series finale, Clark and Lois are getting ready for their wedding but not before Lois gets her "superhero's wife" cold feet. Meanwhile Oliver - secretly taken over by the darkness - plots with the unholy trinity to get Clark out of the way - but not everything goes as he planned. Lionel tries to resurrect Lex who is in need of a heart. Clark consults Jor-El for one last time. Jor-El shows Clark who he was and who he has become now, in order to get him ready to take flight and save the world from annihilation and the darkness' control; his final trial to become the world's ultimate hero: Superman.

The planet Apokolypse resides in an extra dimensional plane just outside the bleed therefore it cannot move as a ship. This is most likely the shows concept on War World; a planet sized ship ruled by superman's other foe Mongul. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Chloe Sullivan: "This is the story of an amazing boy who grew up in the fields of Kansas in a little town called Smallville. When he became a man, he believed the only way to seize his destiny was to turn his back on both his parents and refused to see the darkness descending on earth. But all that was about to change. He was about to face his greatest challenge."

Superman, at last!!!
14 August 2011 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Three months after it was aired in the US, I in France just came at last to see Smallville's finale and... oh my God! I was screaming and laughing and crying in front of my screen: at last I was seeing the true Superman live again! Tom Welling was meant to wear the blue suit and red cape, he was made to be Superman; for the first time since the 1978 movie with regretted Christopher Reeve, I saw this symbol of hope, flying with his red cape in the wind and the mythical music theme of John Williams as a bonus. This final double episode was really satisfying, with beloved guest-stars and many brilliant ideas to link together the series with the universe of the comics. Of course, not everything was perfect, for example Lois and Clark's relationship was not quite as bubbly as usual, but they're cute nevertheless, and I believe that every fan found what they expected. I think we can congratulate Smallville's writers and producers for the coherence and inventiveness of the universe they created and its respect for its model. They took the stand for 10 years and they can be proud of their work.
