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.

He was about to face his greatest challenge."

A perfect ending to the greatest comic book series of all time and one of the best Superman stories ever told.
10 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

Thank you Smallville cast and crew for 10 years of incredible characters, stories, and one of the most memorable experiences in TV history.

It's great to see so many elements of Smallville being used to influence similar shows like Supergirl and The Flash, but there will only ever be one champion of superhero TV shows, one icon, one legend, one Smallville.
