 Pretty well said Joe.  In 10 seasons, off the top of my head, I cannot remember a time when they had 3 good ones in a row, yet they've done it here!  Granted, I am not sure if this gives me more hope for the finale, or scares me, but lets hope they keep the roll going.

They should have been doing Darkside stuff.  Now they have to cram it all in the last ep and series final.  It's a great job getting to 10 seasons but they needed better writing on this. 

I should just put needs better writing on my sig for all my posts.  Pisses me off that all this great tech for visuals these days but no writing to back it up.

Episode as awesome. Callum Blue is amazing and like i said before if he were playing Zod in the new Superman movie id embrace it a hell of alot more.

You will bow down before me, Jor-El. I swear it! No matter that it takes an eternity! You WILL BOW DOWN BEFORE ME! Both you, and then one day, YOUR HEIRS!

Callum Blue is Zod , Terrance Stamp would be so proud \m/

I love the touch of clark when he battled olie the "red cape" on his gladiator uniform. Nice Superman Touch.

Awesome episode sorry it all has to end , was an amazing ride, been there since season 1 .

At first I ws taken back by the Ollie explaination on how him and Clark worked together, the 2 sec wrap up after they were saved.  I thinking if they were working togther, why stab Clark.  But he is the Green Arrow, has all the Agility and aiming focus, so he could pull it off.  Not hitting the heart I mean.

 

Good directing.  Makes me think I can get a job directing in Hollywood.  The regular directors stink.  Hartley should step in more often.

Really had a blast with the 300 imitation. Loved the episode

 Another solid episode in my opinion.  Really like how they use Zod.  Did they explain how he got into the Zone anyways?  I was watching it late at night so I may have missed it.  I know he said something about the Kandorians turning on him.  

I'm dying to see the finale now. I know they didn't do much with this Darkseid thing all season but i'm starting to be fine with it because we've all seen everyone's reaction to the Smallville version of DC baddies.  And I just know the moaning and bit@hing we are going to hear in the finale when he shows up in whatever form.

Yeah, this week was a good one.  I'll agree that about the only issue I had with it was that Clark and Oliver felt that they would be just fine without any weapons in the Zone.  I mean, Clark knows that he loses his powers there, so why exactly wouldn't he wear or bring some more protection at least?  One other thing: if Zod has had access to the Zone's gate this whole time, why didn't he ever use it to return to Earth?  Ahhhh, nitpicking.  Sorry...

The action was tight and I enjoyed the "Zack Snyder"-ish feel to it.  I was also really pleased with the solid continuity like the idea that the spirit Zod from Season 6 joined with the clone Zod and resolving the Slade Wilson issue without having to really show him.  The homage to Superman: The Movie was cool, too.  Was that Ursa and Non trapped in the Zone window with him?  And yes, something FINALLY having to do with Darkseid happened.  The solution/quest involving Oliver's search for Orion's bow seems interesting...

What really got me psyched was the teaser for next week.  Sure, we got Lois getting Clark's powers (AGAIN), but Kara, Granny Goodness and Toyman are back (I always liked his over-the-top character).  Plus, did you see that group shot of the Legion of Doom?  Solomon Grundy, Black Manta.  Friggin' Captain Cold!  PLUS, finally saw some pics online of Rosenbaum back in action for the finale.  That guy owns the bald cap!

 PS- Justice has finally been served for the actions of 10 years ago.  God Bless America.

Joe, I agree with the grade ande loved the action, but WTF, they did it again.  The premise makes no sense at all!

Slade gets sent through the portal, Clark and Ollie go to investigate.  They learn that Zod has the crystal.  Fine.  But then Zod tells them since he got Clark's blood, he can use the crystal.  So why doesn't he?!  He could go back to Metropolis and be all super powered again.  But instead he chooses to stay and rule the phantom zone?  Why?  It doesn't make any sense.  I was scratching my head on that one for minutes on end.

And touche' on the no weapons thing.  Clark goes to the phantom zone, where he regularly gets his ass kicked or is taken prisoner by people with knives and spears, and he goes... defenseless. Amazing.

Other than that, good action, although it seemed like a little contrived way to have Clark and Ollie fight.  And they're working together, so they know that after Ollie STABS HIM, Zod is going to step in to make the finishing blow so Clark can grab the crystal.  Oh, that all follows.
