After Clark falls off the building with the blue K knife in him. We find Clark in a dream state or near death experience back to the cornfield with the cross talking to Jor-El. Jor-El would prefer Clark be dead due to him failing at what we don't really know, father of the year right there, and we see Lex in his white suit appear as well. Lois pulls the dagger out of Clark who heals.
Clark and Chloe meet up and talk about Cadmus, a secret project Lex may have had that no one knew about, but somehow the Daily Planet might have files on it. Apparently, the government or Checkmate took Ollie who are torturing him. Chloe puts on the Dr.Fate helmet to find him. Tess awakens in a lab full of Lex clones. One of the clones is a young Lex named Alexander and the other one is an aged Lex who is out of his mind. The out of his mind, Lex burns the place down.
After waking up from putting on the helmet, she tells Clark about Cadmus burning down and that he will be a great hero. Clark goes to the lab to find Tess chained up who tells him about the evil clone Lex. Evil Lex crucifixes Lois in the same cornfield even throws on the big S on her for some reason. Lex tells Lois she is Clark's greatest weakness, I see someone saw Kick-Ass. Lex burns the field and confronts Clark nearby. Lex gives him the sadistic choice of save Lois or save the people of Metrolopis from the top of the Daily Planet symbol from crashing on them. Clark almost kills the clone, but saves Lois and does a jump/fly to stop the Daily Planet symbol from killing people.
Ollie is released after Chloe turns herself in since you know, she doesn't have superfriends to help her out and the person who knows everything should be exchanged for a guy who can handle torture. Clark feels good about everything and almost puts the suit on only to have Jor-El cock blocks him and give him a speech about pride while locking the suit in glass. Lois leaves for Africa and leaves a letter for Clark. Then Johnathan returns out of nowhere telling Clark to give Jor-El the middle finger since something pretty dark is headed straight for him. We see the top of the building where the Kandorians portal. A gust of wind and dust turns int a giant swirl of black and we see MOTHER FUCKING DARKSEID!!! rise. Tess becomes a mother for the young Lex while we are all wondering what the fuck was the point of all this.
Its nice to see Darkseid as well as Johnathan and the shout out to the first episode was cool, but the rest is a disaster. I have no idea why they are stalling on the suit with this being the last season, something they mentioned in opening after the recap. Especially with Darksied, the baddest of the bads in all of comics being this year's villain. Getting rid of Chloe this way makes no sense either since she didn't even try to tell Clark or the others. Lois running away while knowing the biggest story of all is a bit of a cheat too. This really should be the season where they go balls to the wall, but they keep edging their bets for what reason, I don't know. I will say if they are going against Darkseid, Clark is going to need the League and that includes someone with a green ring, an amazon and the bat. As the first step in the last mile of the show, it felt we are already off to a bad stop or we only moved an inch.
Gough and Millar are no longer running this show, right? Even though we still get their logo during the closing credits? Because they were all "no flight, no tights" and all I'm seeing in our future is lots of flights and lots of tights. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

They left a couple years ago. I'm sure they would've planned for there to be tights & flights on the series finale anyways. I don't think we're actually going to see them on til the final few episodes- I'm assuming flight comes before tights. We could use a couple non-finale episodes of Clark trying to get the flying thing down with him going all Hancock with his landings until he gets the hang of it. I'd hate to have it "I couldn't fly for like 10 years and now all of a sudden I'm a pro at it!", that was more of a Heroes thing.
'Smallville's' Clark Kent prepares to suit up After 10 long years, Clark Kent of "Smallville" is finally ready to suit up - star Tom Welling reveals that his character will finally don Superman's famous red cape, blue tights, and "S" shield and take flight in the CW series's final episode.
"Some people might be a little upset that it’s taken this long, but I think that we have to embrace the fact that if we’d done it in the first season, the show would be over,” 33-year-old Welling, who spent more hours playing Clark Kent than any actor in history, tells the Los Angeles Times.
"The whole point was to try to elongate this journey or this transition that Clark has to becoming Superman," he adds.
Still, Welling admits it will be tough saving the big reveal for the very last episode. "At this point you’re like, ‘Why doesn’t he just put on the suit?’ I mean, come on — he’s doing the same stuff now, so why not? That’s the challenge — to make that last until the end.”
Ultimately, Welling – who is also executive producer of the CW's new series "Hellcats" - wants fans to feel that while "Smallville" won't be around, Superman hasn't abandoned them.
“I just want the audience to get the feeling that I got watching [the "24" finale] … a feeling of hope, and faith that he’s going to continue, and that he’s out there somewhere.”
Ugh! The stall tactics are just going to get worse as the season goes on. The Jor-El drunk daddy speech was one of the worst to come down the line. I am also not happy to see the Blur vs. Darkseid. Bad enough, he is already fought Bizzaro, Zod and Braniac as CK.
I know it's hard to talk about this episode, when the previews for next week upstaged it by doing a bit that was too ludicrous for WWE, but I still thought this episode itself was amusing enough. The stabbing rampage made the episode for me.
