Saying goodbye to “Smallville” – series finale ends Tom Welling’s run as Clark Kent
“Smallville” came to a conclusion tonight, after a 10-year run that spotlighted Clark Kent’s young adulthood as he grew into the man who would be Superman.
By series’ end, Tom Welling has played Clark Kent for more episodes of television than anyone else.
SOME SPOILERS AHEAD
Tonight’s episode was emblematic of “Smallville” as a whole – some charming actors, some cheesy dialogue, some unfilled promise but some great moments.
Welling and Erica Durance, who plays Lois Lane, have absolutely great chemistry.
While there were plenty of nits to pick about this episode, it was worth it for me just for a final Lex Luthor (Michael Rosenbaum)-Clark Kent scene, and for the closing moments of the Man of Steel.
Series finales can be difficult – and often end up as kind of a mess – but this one did manage to give closure to most of the characters who were still part of the show’s 10th season.
“Smallville” changed a lot over its 10-year run, and I probably enjoyed it more over the past couple of years as it became more explicitly “comic-booky,” and the focus shifted more to Lois and Clark than Lana and Clark.
What did you think about the finale and the series as a whole? Were you satisfied by the finale?
