Ten seasons, and hundreds of episodes was what it took to convince mild mannered reporter Clark Kent of Smallville to don his cape in the final episode, and embrace his destiny (symbolized in the ability to fly) as defender of the earth.
Some disappointments though in my reviewing of the season ender:
- Lex Luthor was resurrected – only to be mindwiped in the end by sister Tess, and he was not able to bring on his arch nemesis purpose into the series finale
- Darkseid being built up as a global threatening villain, only to be rushed being defeated in a few seconds by Superman pushing away his planet Apokolips.
- There was not even a fight between Darkseid and Superman.
