12 Most Memorable Episodes Of Smallville
Fans of Smallville aren’t completely over the fact that the show is off the air even though it has been six years since we said goodbye to Tom Welling as Superman and rocked out to Remy Zero’s “Save Me.” Thanks to a great ten season run from 2001-2011 and a continuation in comic books, fans got a lot out of the show and, even though it waned a bit in later seasons, it was undoubtedly one of the best TV series in recent years. With an outstanding cast and an intriguing storyline, Superman’s origin story series as Clark Kent retains loyal fans thanks to the surge in superhero material gracing both the big and small screens. This means there is no better time than now to look back on the best episodes the show produced. Check Out the 12 Most Memorable Episodes of Smallville!
12. “Homecoming” S10, E4
Even though Smallville was an impressive show from start to finish, many fans agree that things went downhill in later seasons, meaning that by season 10 it was about time to call it quits. As the final season, season 10 had to be noteworthy and the fourth episode into the season, “Homecoming,” ended up being one of the best of the whole series. As Smallville‘s 200th episode, it took us back to Smallville High and fans got some great flashbacks as the show started to say goodbye. It also amped up the final season with glimpses of the future, which featured Clark facing Darkseid for the first time, his future with Lois and a hilarious conversation that he has with his future self. Overall, this episode reminded us of how great the past nine seasons had been, how far the character’s had come and seemed to promise more good things before the season finished.
11. “Rosetta” S2, E17
Season two’s “Rosetta,” which features Smallville’s “freak of the week” plotline, stands out above many other episodes for several reasons. First and foremost, our beloved original Superman Christopher Reeve made his appearance as Dr. Virgil Swann, a pivotal moment for the series and an important moment for the fans of Superman through the years. After everything that came after, this might be hard to remember now, but a quick glance back will remind fans that this is where Clark learns more than ever before about his Kryptonian heritage, including his name “Kal-El” and that he is “last son of Krypton.” This is a defining moment for Clark. Reeves’ appearance not only gives the show legitimacy, but it is also considered a passing of the torch between the actors, which is a big deal for fans of the entire Superman universe.
