Well tonight was the tenth episode of the final season. Entitled "Luthor" written by bryan Q miller and directed by Kelly Souders. It featured the alternate world where lionel luthor is alive and well and raised and evil clark named "ultraman". Tonight was also the directorial debut of exective producer/writer kelly souders.

I thought bryan wrote a great script. I been waiting for yrs for a real alternate universe episode. Since we where teased with fake ones through the yrs or just dreams. The alt world being controled and ruled by lionel was pretty cool. It was a dark and crappy looking world. Also i thought it was a great touch that the alt world was in a grey tint. To help show us which world was going on.

Also i loved how evil lionel raised clark in the alt world. IT was also nice we got a refrence to not only gold kryptonite but also alt lex. To bad he was murdered by alt clark. Nice touch there with michael not around and all. I liked that clark also learned about the little lex clone and that tess is a luthor. They played it out well.

Kelly did great as a first time director. I wonder why she waited so long to give it a go. She did very well. Lighting were good in both worlds, blocking well and good camera moves and angles. She also got good acting out of the cast.

Acting was great all around. Tom did great as both real clark and alt clark. He had some great dramatic points to play off. Also i loved alt clark scenes with tess. Well done. Same with real clark in the alt world with lionel/ollie and lois.

John glover as the good old MB was a real treat. It was like he was never gone. He came back and was on top game. I am glad they asked him to return. Also he played evil lionel great. I loved seeing him play bad again. He was a great villain in the early yrs. His scenes with ollie, clark and tess were great. He had real emotion and dramtic timing and all that. Really cant wait to see how his 3 more episodes play out.

Cassidy was great as tess. She had some great development going on. She played caring, warm and touching stuff well. Her scenes in alt world with lionel was great. It was nice to see her get to work with glover.

Justin did good tonight as ollie. I thought his scenes were pretty good. We didnt get much real world ollie. But alt world ollie was pretty nice. He didnt see to different but still was a cool character.

Erica was also on top as lois. Her scenes were pretty good. Love her in alt world and real world. She played each lois pretty well. I love her work and she is doing great as lois.

So all an all a great tenth episode of the season. I liked it alot. Good action, good story, good drama. Also had some good special effects. I loved that alt clark was directly refrenced as ultraman. I was hoping for it and glad we got it. Alt world was nicely done and it would be neat if we got to see it again. Cant wait to see where the lionel storyline goes. Also next week promo was great. Cant wait to see how that episode turns out. Looks to be very good. All an all really loved tonights episode. Didnt have any issues much at all with it.

I've been a pretty vocal detractor of Tess this season. I've not really been nuts about her character ever since season 9. The revelation that she's a Luthor... ya know, two years ago, I would've given a crap. I just don't anymore.

The episode. Good. Very good. Love the comics stuff from this season. So this is the SV version of Earth 3. I like! Ultra Man was a nice touch. I guess we can assume he's dead now. Or the Earth 3 Oliver is dead. Ya know, one of the two.

And hey, Lionel's back! The MB version of Lionel, the one I think we've all kinda missed since season 4. Let's see, Clark is definitely a disappointment to this Lionel, Queen killed Lex and Tess is in control of Luthorcorp.

I don't think he's going to be a very happy camper there on Earth 1.

Going back to Tess, because I have ADD, I've always kinda wondered that she had a thing for Clark. Guess we can put speculation to rest there. She wasn't at all unfriendly to Clark Luthor's advances.

I think this was Kelly Souders directorial debut on the show. And what do you know, the cinematography was first rate. She knocked it out of the park! My hope is that she and Peterson have learned their lesson about the importance of visuals, color design and so forth on this show. Al and Miles structured it that way for a reason. Best to stick to what they set up so long ago.

Overall? An easy 5/5, definitely one of the best of this season.

Forgive me if I seem a little dense today (worked last night) but just what exactly is the 'MB version of Lionel Luthor'? I'll probably go 'DUH_UHH' when you tell me! Very Happy

Great episode, very well done. Cinematography and color grading was excellent. Still a damn great looking show to look at, although not quite as good as Mrs Aquaman......As much as the JLA film could've been a bit of a mess, I still like the idea of the League having to bring down a rogue Superman. When not constrained by playing young, wide eyed and naive Clark, Welling is certainly bringing some gravitas into the darker scenes.

And a killer last scene that made me laugh out loud. Well done.
