Rosenbaum says he's never coming back, and honestly, I can't blame him.


By the end of season 9, I was underwhelmed and didn't care. Season 10's Lazarus kicked off with a snozzle, and went from so so, to who cares, fairly quickly.

Honestly, I liked the season premiere. I look forward to what lies ahead in this final season. If Rosenbaum doesn't want to come back one final time, too bad for him. I sure haven't seen him doing anything else lately.

Yeah, I thought that was great. I can't believe that Tess is taking care of the little one, knowing what he will most likely become.

I loved that shot of the suit in the fortress at the end.

I think Clark was flying when he caught the Daily Planet globe. He said he thought he was, and it looked more like flying than a jump to me.

My theory is that Alexander was the mastermind behind the attempt on Lois. He used the other clone both to ensure Tess would take him away from Cadimus and to try getting revenge on Clark. Part of the reason for my guess is how he put one of his toys in the fire (I'm guessing to represent sacrificing the other Lex to further his own ends.)

I really like that theory. Tess doesn't know what she has gotten herself into.

By the end of season 9, I was underwhelmed and didn't care. Season 10's Lazarus kicked off with a snozzle, and went from so so, to who cares, fairly quickly.

I was underwhelmed as well. I mean, it was ok, but it wasn't amazing. I think what killed it for me was Erica Durance. I've always thought she was the weak link in the cast in terms of acting but she's always had this charm that made up for it, but she was just a cold fish to me. I laughed out loud during the scene where she was crying over Clark's body and I'm sure that's not the reaction they were going for. (And if Clark was human when he hit the ground how did he not splatter everywhere?)

I was also disappointed that, once again, they crapped all over Clark. He does the big hero thing in Salvation and five minutes into the episode we're hearing about how he was stupid and wrong. I did like Clark's talk with Jonathan though, and him admitting that destroying the building wasn't the right thing to do, but the whole conversation with Jor-el was ridiculous.

Also, how did the Lex clone know that Clark loved Lois? When the real Lex died Clark/Lana was still happening big time. The clones admitted Lex has been dead for years so something isn't adding up in my head. I suppose it could be proof that the real Lex is alive, but I don't know, even the clone said he was dead.

I dunno, I've stuck with it this long so I'll see the season out, but I might not watch live if the quality doesn't improve.

And like majorsal I have Chloe angst. :(

I loved the episode, especially seeing the suit in the ice in the end, that was very nice! I'm glad the evil Lex clone was killed off though. I still have hopes MR will return. But I really enjoyed the episode.

I liked the episode for Clark antics such as the globe catching thing. I thought he was flying too! I got really excited for five seconds before realizing he wasn't.

Lex clone could have been better. Wish Chloe kept on the mask. That was pretty heroic though what she did. Even though I regret her departure.

I actually liked the Premiere too. I just cant quite figure out what happened with Lois in the end. I mean the first secound she is about to give clark her present and after the hit to the head she simply dissapears to a far of country? That is sooooooooo Lana Lang.

Besides that it was a interresting start to the last Season. I also thought that Clark was flying when he catched the Globe.
As for how I saw it, after he catched it he slowed down a bit and then speed up again. That would be flying for me.

I just hope that Chloe gets rescued soon. It would be a shame to leave her out right at the end.

I really liked it, lots of "ooh"moments.

Though i wish that the whole chloe and the helmet thing would have been done better, thats how i assumed she would leave the show by becoming dr fate.

I reckon that alexander will become the Lex that Dr Fate spoke of and become clarks ulitmate enemy.

I just can't picture Clark in that outfit though. And with all the technology shown, we're to believe he won't be identified? I hope braniac comes back. The guy that plays him is just awesome. Nice to see that Justice league will stick around.

Brainiac will indeed be back this season. Just a different version of him, played by the same actor, James Marsters.

That is definitely what I have been thinking since seeing the episode. I guess we will have to wait and see.

So, the actress who plays Chloe has left the show?

Huh. Chloe was my favorite character. Really good actress. After the guy who played Lex left there were none (imo) who acted at her level.

I'd watch til the teen (and these people are LONG out of the teen thing) angst ratcheted up to unpardonable levels. Then change the channel/leave the room. :P

10 years the show has been on. And still Clark thinks keeping secrets from his love is a good idea. Despite all evidence to the contrary. Seen multiple times.

I liked the whole Justice League concept. But dislike the Superman goody-goodyness. And angst. Oh well.

No big loss, I've never been a fan, just a viewer anyway.

Though they didn't do what I was hoping for...Clark pull out the blue K and toss it and fly off. I thought that would have been a cool reveal, but I guess they are going to wait as long as possible before they let him fly. Oh well, it was nice to see Jonathan again. :)

I enjoyed the episode well enough. Meh, on the Lex clone stuff, but it does follow years of Smallville canon with Lex funding that kind of science.

I hate that AM is only going to be in a couple of eps this year.
