SMALLVILLE Season Premiere: ‘Lazarus’

September 25, 2010 by  

Hey SMALLVILLE fans – what a season opener! I can’t say I was disappointed.The whole show just flowed together, touching on everything that left us hanging at the end of season 9 while raising a whole new set of questions.

I can’t wait to hear what you have to say about Clark and Lois. And Oliver and Chloe. Or the shocking discovery of Alexander and Tess. Boy do we have a lot to talk about!

Lois and Clark’s silent and mutual understanding of one another in this episode was great, similar to that of Superman and Lois in the original story. I loved the way Lois let Clark do what every hero has to do.

The letter at the end was a blow until of course until Jonathan Kent made an appearance! Yes, Lois is Clark’s other half and the most important person in his life now, but seeing Jonathan Kent and Clark back on the farm like the good old days was like Christmas for me. Tell me you weren’t dying for more?! That was the best!

And while we’re talking about the good old days, the Lex storyline was also a plus in my book. It would have been out of this world to see Michael Rosenbaum come out from behind that locked door at the Cadmus Lab, but the producers did the best they could with an older Lex clone. I don’t know if my mind was playing tricks on me, but Lex’s clone, who had all of Lex’s memories, did a pretty terrific job replicating Lex’s mannerisms. From his bald head to the way he played with Clark’s mind. Even down to the finger pointing. Everything was right on.

Clark racing against time to not only save Lois in her signature ‘S’ tank top (does Erica Durance always look good, even while being burned at the stake?!) but also to stop the Daily Planet from crushing half the Metropolis population — I was completely caught up in all the action.

Which brings me to that surprising moment where I thought Clark was actually about to fly. What a tease! And I can’t forget to mention the iconic Superman suit that Clark had in the barn. Watching Lois put all the pieces of the puzzle together, the suit being the last, was cool. Then of course she took a blunt object to the head! Season after season we’ve witnessed our star reporter get ‘conveniently knocked out’ before Clark’s true identity could ever be discovered. Now, after all this time, it was refreshing to see that she knows the truth about Clark.

Someone has to root for our favorite superhero, now that Chloe has traded places with Oliver after seeing a vision through Dr. Fate’s helmet. A vision we weren’t privy to see. Although we know now it wasn’t a final goodbye from Chloe tonight, it was still sad to see her off…and in a hostage situation to boot – one I suspect Tess will be in soon with our new toy burning hellion Alexander in the picture.

Sure their hallmark greeting card scene by the fire had me misty, but this is going to undoubtedly turn ugly. I haven’t figured out just yet what’s to come for these two and how they’ll play into Smallville. Will Alexander’s stay be for a while or what? Will there be a full season of evil Lex clones running around, along with the upcoming appearance of Darkseid and his crew?

I’ve haven’t been this psyched for Smallville in a long time! The series is definitely set to go out with a bang, so stick around for the ride and as always I’ll be back next week. In the meantime drop us a line and let us know what you think is next for Clark and the impending doom of evil headed this way!

    Too bad its ending this year. The premiere was good. Hopefully Michael Rosenbaum will return.
