Please note, our reviews are based on likes and dislikes. These contain major spoilers. If you haven’t already watched the episode we would recommend that you click off the article, and come back once you have watched the episode. Enjoy!

What I Liked

1. Been waiting for Morgan Edge to make his return and he finally did it. What a guy. The show has done fantastic at giving him such a huge turnaround for his character.

2. An amazing moment between Clark and Morgan, after Clark points out how ironic it is that this time last year Morgan was trying to destroy the world and now he’s trying to fight for it, Morgan responds by telling him he’s fighting for him. Such a great moment between the pair.

3. This episode is already filled with emotion-packed scenes. Clark, Jonathon, and Jordan take the screen for this one as Clark prepares for Morgan to throw him into the sun to regenerate his cells, the only downside is it could kill him. So as you can imagine this was a pretty emotional scene as the boys prepare for the fact they may lose their dad.

4. My god man seeing Lois on Bizarro world was incredible. Hearing people’s screams as buildings are destroyed and planes crashed was so intense.

5. Watching Kyle break down admittedly is heart-wrenching. I can never condone what he did but you can just hear the hurt and pain he’s suffering thinking he will never see his family again. After disappearing in front of Lois, we see him reunite with his family and how tightly he grabbed them. What a moment.

6. What a guy Sam is man. I know this is in my dislikes just purely because of the fact the shows now hinted Superman and Lois are no longer part of the Arrowverse but I have to respect everything else he just said about Clark. The respect he has for that man just goes above and beyond everything else. Compared to how he was in this first season, this moment from him was absolutely amazing.

7. Loved that little moment with Chrissy. She’s always been a character I couldn’t get used to, but after Lois told her their secret, her reaction was great. I think anyone’s reaction would be pretty similar.

8. I guess I have to call him Tal now, but after such an intense episode it was great to have a good laugh there at the end after Tal gifted Jonathon and Jordan a truck each. Clark’s reaction was absolutely priceless and not too impressed by the situation while Jonathon and Jordan were more interested in the sound system.

9. A great ending to a great episode. The Fortress of Solitude now has a new location, that can be accessed by the whole family and not just Clark and Jordan. This is a great touch because Jonathon is already missing out on quite a lot so to let him be involved in some way is nice to see.

What I Disliked

As much as I loved what Sam was saying about Clark given their history I do also have to put this in as a dislike. He states Superman is the only hero they have on their planet? How does that even make sense? What about Supergirl, Batwoman, The Flash, Arrow, everyone? The whole point of Crisis was that all worlds merged into one. Everyone was on the same Earth, but now apparently it’s just Superman?

Favourite Moment

Wooooow. I’m going to struggle to find the words for this one but here I am going to try anyways. I didn’t know what to expect after Superman got thrown into the sun but it just wasn’t that. That exceeded my expectations. His return was insane. Seeing him bomb through the city after Ally, the way everyone looked at him in relief that he was back and his final moment, of course, using every part of his power to stop Ally. What a guy man. Oh, and those effects, well played!

Standout Character

Superman takes standout this week for me. He had many emotional scenes with supporting characters such as Tal, his Children, and reuniting with Lois there at the end after saving the world. Not only that but his return after being thrown into the sun pretty much stole the moment.

Verdict

What a finale. Every single Character pretty much had an amazing moment. That is how a finale should be done. But there is one thing to take away from this episode which is a huge shame is the fact that seemingly Superman and Lois are no longer part of the Arrowverse.


Rating 10/10


We would just like to disclose that our reason for rating this episode a 10/10 despite having quite a big dislike is because the dislike is not referring to the actual story of the episode itself, but more of what removing Superman and Lois from the Arrowverse effectively means.
