TV Review: SMALLVILLE – SEASON 10 – “Lazarus” – Season Premiere
“And now, the final season of SMALLVILLE.” This is how it begins, a solemn reminder that SMALLVILLE will be no more after ten seasons, followed by a whole lot of confusion. Seriously, so much happened in “Lazarus” that it’s kind of hard to know where to begin. Clark (Tom Welling) being given a second chance after having a near death experience only to be told by Jor-El (Terence Stamp) that he is somehow failing in his duties as a hero. Even better, Clark has a full on hallucination when he receives a visit from his deceased father, Jonathon (John Schneider). Oliver (Justin Hartley) being held captive by someone or something. Chloe (Allison Mack) trading herself for his freedom. Lois (Erica Durance) discovering Clark’s secret, being kidnapped by a Lex clone (Mackenzie Gray), then bolting to Africa after Clark saves her. And yes, you read correctly, a Lex clone. Several actually, including a young (and now only surviving) version of Lex, or Alexander as he is known (Jakob Davies), that Tess (Cassidy Freeman) decides to adopt.
