Smallville Finale
After 10 years, Smallville is airing its final episode tonight on The CW. The two-hour finale will wrap up the journey of Clark Kent, so he can finally emerge as the Superman we know. Producers Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders reflected on their years in Smallville as the end of it all approached.

The fact that we have such hardcore fans that have followed the show, I think that’...

At Fort Ryan, Kansas, Colonel Slade Wilson (“Battlestar Galactica” vet Michael Hogan) is preaching the gospel of anti-vigilantism. The more people put their faith in superheroes, the less they turn to their elected leaders. But Slade’s certain that once the secret vigilantes come into power, they’ll become malevolent dictators.

Lois and Clark are heading to the boonies to cover the “Cherry Festival” (really?) when they get a double blowout. Clark heads to the nearest town to get a new tire while Lois hangs back with Charlotte Cavanagh, a little farm girl straight out of “Little House on the Prairie.” But when Clark returns to the car with a fresh tire, Lois is nowhere to be seen.

Even weirder, as Clark puts the tire in the trunk, he cuts his suddenly not-indestructible hand. A local constable agrees to help Clark search for Lois, who is taking a horse-and-buggy carriage ride with Charlotte back to her Amish-looki...

Clark’s self-doubt lingers as the episode opens with a nice synergistic shot of some Time Warner magazines with superheroes on the covers. Lois pops by to remind Clark that their 5-year high school reunion is the next day and she does not want to miss it (never mind that she was enrolled in Smallville High for all of 23 days, five of which she actually attended). The on-hold status of their relationship notwithstanding, Clark agrees to go.

Back at Smallville High, a beleaguered guidance counselor looks back over a decade of dealing with meteor-rock malfeasants (in early seasons of SMALLV...
