Tonight’s Smallville series finale perhaps was the most enjoyable series finale I have witnessed. That’s not saying much. Conclusions: Smallville Series finale > than the movie Superman Returns, and I think there needs to be a debate but I still believe that Erica Durance has to be the best Lois Lane ever.
There were a lot of religious images throughout. I think that the writers played a lot with Clark Kent being sort of a Parable of the Prodigal Son times deux (Jor-el and Jonathan Kent) with Clark being the Prodigal, with perhaps Lex being sort of the eldest son type figure, wanting to be perfect, always outshone by Clark’s deeds.
Joel saw much of the same End Times/ Last Days themes that I did:
