Doomsday

I’ve just finished watching the season finale of Smallville, entitled “Doomsday”

I think all in all the episode was ok, it did not have the factor to it that was as wow as some of the previous smallville finales. I liked how they used Jimmys death. In the Superman graphic novel “The Death of Superman” it ends with a picture of Superman dead in Lois’ arms with Doomsday dead nearby.

Previously Clark split Davis from Doomsday, so in a sense there was the Doomsday beast -that Clark went after, and then there was the human side with all the evils of human nature. It is the human side that kills Jimmy, out of pure jealousy as Chloe says she loves Jimmy and also finally states that she was only staying with Davis to keep him away from Clark.

Jimmy has been fatally stabbed, and then just as Davis is about to go all woman beater on Chloe, Jimmy pushes him onto some spike thing and Davis is dead too.

The image now is Chloe with Jimmy in her arms, and Davis dead. This matches the depictation in the superman comics, and i think is a very good take on it to change around characters in such a way is effective and non predictable, and it also gives more effect to the scene.

Clark vs the Beast is what pissed me off. Its basically Clark takes a punch – through a wall, Clark gets hit again, Clark superspeeds into Doomsday (possibly flying now…) and puts him down a big hole in a geothermal plant where it is blown up and Doomsday is trapped underground.

Then cut to funeral scene.

Wait…. is Clark alive?! WHAT JUST HAPPENED WITH THAT EXPLOSION!

Jimmys funeral and you hear his name as “Henry James…” Chloe then hands his brother the camera and says “i guess this is yours now” … so the little brother is the link into Jimmy Olsen remaining in Superman as he is meant to? His name is James? Dunno. Maybe.

Funeral ends and OH LOOK ITS CLARK! He’s wearing a big trench coat, and tells Chloe that he is going to forget his human self and be all kryptonian and hard core and save the world – No. The cold, Dark Clark Kent does not work.

End series with  a shot of Zod materialising in his actual form (previously he needed a host).

Lois is stuck in the future too apparently… she stuck on the legion ring… stupid bitch.

So next series of Smallville will see multiple things – Zod vs Clark – Zod vs Superman is shown within the Superman movies… so they’ll have to tred lightly oO
Formation of Justice League – Chloe now lives in a tower that see’s all of metropolis and she calls it the WatchTower. So the Justice League base is established… now to get Green Arrow, Flash and Black Canary back…..

Theres also Setanna and Aquaman now so that makes 6 if you include Clark … because he’s blatantly only gonna be gone for the first episode or two with his whole “HUMANS FUCKING SUCK” mood. He’ll come back… Seriously.

Wonderwoman and Batman will never come in smallville in any form, the original creators / people with rights banned them from smallville… so we’ll just have to make do with some other hero…

Like…

Spiderman (Fuck that)

    I’ve never seen Smallville before, but everybody seems to like it. Sounds very clever.

    GAH! I know! The Clark/Doomsday battle was suppose to be epic and it was over in three punches. We’ve built up the whole season for this fight scene and NOTHING HAPPEND.

    To be honest, I hope the next season is the last. Right now, it’s just desprately holding onto life. Just finish up the Justice League arc, the Lois and Clark arc, the Clark becoming Superman arc, the Zod arc, and the Doomsday arc (because we know it’s not finished) and let it die in peace.
