Dug it. Even so, this was a kind of mid-season cliffhanger that usually either comes off really strongly (3.08, Shattered; 8.10, Bride) or really poorly (7.09, Gemini, which I've never been a huge fan of).

This one. Harder to say. We've got the engagement, Slade seems to have been banished to the Phantom Zone, Hawkman's dead and the VRA plot seems to have been really escalated.

But on the other hand... wtf was up with that ending? Plus, much like the King Lear reference last week, I don't think the Icarus thing was as developed as it could've been. Plus, it felt like Clark was either too reactive or else too inactive. True, Superman would choose his moment to act... but we should've at least gotten Clark's reference point on the arrests, interrogations, etc. Not a huge deal but it's like the episode forgot he was around for several scenes.

Overall? Not bad, not great, nothing really jumped out at me. I give it 3/5.

Icarcus ratings in, it scored 2.57mill viewers. Down a bit from last few weeks. But still good numbers.

I have a feeling the end is going to end-up being the "introduction" of the Blue Beetle or Booster Gold.

And some of the things said lead me to form an idea on what is going to happen by the end of the season, and why.

Ended up being quite a Justice League episode, but the cliff hanger seemed a bit forced. That's being picky, enjoyable show, I thought.

Here is my review on the episode finally.

Well friday was the mid season finale for smallville final season. It was a great episode. It was written by geneviveve sparling and directed by mairzee almas. This was good way to break the season. It was such a hear warming, sad, and dramatic episode.

Sparling wrote a great script. Was one of my favs from her. Also I thought it was one of her better episodes. The plot was well written and storylines flowed into each other very well. Loved the whole witch hunt plot on the heroes. It worked out very well and brought in some dramatic stuff. Also the fights were good withing the story of the episode.

The lois and clark stuff where real highlights to the epiisode. Loved that sparling had the proposal at start of the episode. To leave all the big action dramatic stuff for the rest of the episode. Loved seeing how the world is turning on the heroes. Can't wait to see where the story goes.

The fight scenes with slade and carter were great. Loved that carter died saving lois for clark. His scenes with clark and ollie were well done. Also loved how clark took out slade that was such a cool moment.

The funreal scene was touching and heart warming. Loved to see all the heroes there. Even with some of the actors not there physically to play the roles. Also the ending was very weird. So can't wait to see where they go with that. It was such a crazy point to leave use at.

Almas directing was great. It was done in great lighting, camera movment/blocking. Also the staging for the fights were done very well. Almas pulled off good work tonight. One of the best from this director. Pacing and editing I thought were also used very well tonight. The sfx scenes were used great. Also the effects themselfs looked top notch. Almas also got good acting from all the actors tonight.

Tom was on a roll tonight. He was nervous caring loving and a bold strong leader. Tom played it very good. He has grow so much in the past ten yrs and this was one of his best yet. Erica was also great tonight as lois. She played her scenes well off each other actor. She also been great all season long.

Justin and cassidy did great tonight. Both were caring and storng and bold. Loved the hero stuff and the other scenes they had. Also loved the humor justin had tonight. Cassidy also did great in her scenes as well.

Britt/emil actor/black canery actress did good too. Loved emil had a big part in episode. He did great tonight. Britt did very well tonight. Didn't have many scenes but was used well. She wasn't bad at all. Also bc actress was good too. Can't wait to see her bigger role in next episode.

Shanks was wicked great tonight. He was on the ball tonight. His scenes with ollie and clark were good. Also he did great in acting. Loved the death scene. It was sad to see him go. Would love to see him return. I hope it would happen.

All and all a great episode. Loved every minute of the episode. Can't wait to see were the season goes with story. Loved the wtf cliffhanger. Man it sucks we will have to wait six weeks for new episodes. Also loved the promo for returning episodes. Also the allison mack scene was great. Loved we finally got to see it. They used it well putting it tonight. One of the best episodes this season for me. Now time to wait for next new episode.
