Recap of Smallville episode 10.03 “Supergirl”

Correction to last week’s recap: I referred to the skull and crossbones logo as Deadshot‘s symbol, but that’s only because I’m dumb. It’s totally the logo for the Suicide Squad. Pay no attention to the crazy lady behind the curtain!

Episode 10.03 “Supergirl” Airdate 10.8.10

Directed by Mairzee Almas, Written by Anne Cofell Saunders

toastNumber of Drinking Game rules: 14. Not even a full beer!

A pretty good ep with some serious developments when it comes to Darkseid, Oliver, Clois, and Clark’s journey. It certainly had some of that early-Smallville trashiness (fetish Lois, what the what?), but I still dug it. And I have to say, Laura Vandervoort (Kara Kent) has significantly improved. She looks great and didn’t annoy me once, versus the EVERY EPISODE in which she annoyed me during Season 7!

Previously, on Smallville: Season 9 recap. Episode 10.01 recap. Episode 10.02 recap.

lazarus darkseid

“Three Weeks Ago.” Darkseid forms into a swirly, raven-y mass out of the consul at the crow’s nest. In a radio studio, Cat Grant‘s favorite shock jock Gordon Godfrey (played beautifully by voice pro Michael Daingerfield) talks a bunch of smack about “illegal aliens” because he is into all kinds of pissing me off. Darkseid swoops into the window and jumps into his eyeballs. POSSESSED! That should totally be a drinking game rule on this show.

jon hamm superman

Okay, so obvs the big news in the kryptoverse is that Zack Snyder is directing Superman. According to this article, the fanpersons want Snyder to cast Tom Welling, and everyone else wants Jon Hamm. Well although I am an avowed fanperson, I’ve got to say I’m on Team Hamm. (HAH!) Mostly because I can’t stand the idea of Tom playing some other universe’s Superman. He’s Smallville‘s Superman! Also, Jon Hamm LOOKS EXACTLY LIKE SUPERMAN.

Holy crap, my friends. Granny Goodness has been cast!

aquaman

Aww, our little fish stick’s all grow’d up! Arthur Curry/Aquman (Alan Ritchson) is getting hitched this season to…Queen  Mera! The newcomer will be played by Elena Satine. Continue reading

Recap of Smallville episode 10.02 “Shield”

b+

Episode 10.02 “Shield” Airdate 10.1.10

Directed by Glen Winter, Written by Jordan Hawley 

toastNumber of Drinking Game rules: 33

Fun ep–although there wasn’t much in the way of plot development, loads of stuff was set up for later in the season, and we received plenty of character development for Clark, Oliver, Tess and Lois. And man oh MAN Tom Welling is still acting his ass off! He WANTS IT this season. Get it!

Justin Hartley’s voice tells us: “Previously, on Smallville:” last week. And also Absolute Justice.

shield lois and carter

Cold open: Africa. Lois bitches on the phone to Perry White about the lack of cushiness in her current assignment, because she is super profesh. She strolls into an archaelogical tent, nosing around, when Carter Hall/Hawkman enters, looking hella hot in typical desert wear. He tells her, “You never know what fate has in store for you.” Continue reading

Recap of Smallville premiere “Lazarus”

Episode 10.01 “Lazarus” Airdate: 9.24.10

Directed by: Kevin Fair, Written by: Holly Henderson and Don Whitehead

toastNumber of Drinking Game rules: 49 (and this is why we take tiny sips, my friends)

Incredible episode, amIright? The art direction, performances, pacing, editing and writing were all top-notch. A ton of thrilling new story-lines were introduced without any sacrifice of development. I’ve watched it twice now and eagerly look forward to a third viewing!

Allison Mack’s voice tells us,”Previously, on Smallville“: this. and also 9 seasons of awesomeness.

Tom Welling’s voice tells us, “And now: the final season of Smallville.” Marla bursts into tears.

lazarus lois

We open where the season finale left us, as Clark falls all martyriffic from the crow’s nest, the blue Krytonite dagger in his chest. He crashes to the ground as Lois runs up to him, still chasing him after his identity-revealing kiss in the finale. As Lois attempts to wake him, Clark drifts into a dreamlike state of pretty deathiness.

lazarus limbo

He’s in a cornfield–THE cornfield, to be precise, from the pilot. He sees the scarecrow cross and his own grave, as Jor-El‘s voice tells him about a great evil facing the planet and chides Clark for sacrificing his life when the people of Earth still need him. Clark asks Jor-El to send him back to earth and Jor-El hems and haws about it. A bald man in a white suit, backlit by the sun, appears. Who could that ever be?! Not Michael Rosenbaum, that’s for sure. Continue reading
