And I don't know enough about the comics to have any idea who that old lady at the hospital was supposed to be, or the red dots that converged on Oliver, but I'm guessing one or both of them was the Darkseid/Apokolips hint Brian Peterson teased in his recent round of interviews.

The old lady was more than likely Granny Goodness, and is probably going to be recruiting a revived Tess into the Female Furies; and it was probably the Parademons that attacked Oliver. Which yes, all relates to Darkseid, and which has me both excited and scared to death about how they are going to pull this off. The fangirl comic book geek in me has wanted Darkseid for SVs final season (for whenever that would be) since at least season seven. The realist comic book geek in me is wondering day and night how they are ever going to try and pull it off however.

But the finale left me so satisfied that I'm again a Positive Polly. This episode really was titled appropriately, because it honestly healed a lot of what I was feeling about the show up until the moment the episode finished airing. Any problems I had that keep me from being over the moon happy with it are still rather lessened by the fact that Clark POV on the whole situation was proven correct and he was so Superman this my heart ached with the joy of it.

Great review, as always. And yeah, try going back and watching some of the eps from the season now. Checkmate made me so angry the first time I watched it when it aired, but now I can watch it without any anger at all, since I know how it all ends now. It does put eps like Checkmate and Sacrifice in better perspective IMO.

Thanks for the links, which of course led me to click on many other links! :) It will be interesting to see what the show does with that storyline. Don Whitehead said on Twitter that Brian and Kelly know exactly what they want for S10; let's hope it's something good!

I know what you mean. I feel like this episode restored my faith in Smallville, and I don't think I even realized how much it had been eroded.

I haven't had time to start a re-watch yet, but now I'm moving it to the top of my priority list. There were a number of episodes I had problems with because I was certain they were foreshadowing things that would make me explode. And of course those things never happened. :)
