"Clark (Tom Welling) is stunned when Kara (guest star Laura Vandervoort) returns to Earth and tells him Jor El sent her to stop the dark force that is coming because he doesn't believe Clark can handle it. Meanwhile, Lois (Erica Durance) confronts Gordon Godfrey (guest star Michael Daingerfield), a shock jock radio DJ who has been crusading against heroes, after he threatens the Green Arrow (Justin Hartley). However, after Godfrey is possessed by the dark force, he takes Lois hostage and Clark and Kara have to come to her rescue."

I'm going to assume the "dark force" is an early form of Darkseid.

Clark is not yet Superman and is not ready for Darkseid. He needs all the help he can get. I love Supergirl.

I don't like the sound of that. :( I hope they don't mess up Darkseid.

supergirl appears before superman? he is supposed to inspire her, not the other way around

This must be the episode where that bald guy tries to burn Lois in the cornfield.

GUNSMITH - 9/19/2010, 9:05 AM
DEADPOOL-LETS JUST HOPE THEY LEARNED FROM THE DOOMSDAY RUN, ITS THE END,NO HOLDS BARRED, 10 FREAKING SEASONS THEY BETTER END STRONG.
THABATMAN - 9/19/2010, 9:18 AM
I agree with Gunsmith. they need a super epic fight scene between those two for this series finale
blueorangeny - 9/19/2010, 9:40 AM
I think what I read is bullshit. So you telling us, their explanation is that JorEl sent Kara to help Clark because Clark still doesn't have the balls. Like I said in the past, this show it is what it is. Moments I hate some I see decent.
Smallville4Ever - 9/19/2010, 11:55 AM
amazing how people still BITCH, though people are entitled to their opinions, how about we actually WAIT and see what Darkseid looks like first before we cast judgment and make a damn fuss. @deadpool, i gotta admit though that Clark isnt ready for Darkseid, and Im gonna be pissed if this season goes south, it might be half and half, the only season i didnt care for was 3.

The producers said it would be 'darkseid but not what you would expect' and now this dark force that can possese people. Does anyone see a link between this and the final crisis darkseid? Only 6 day to omega. Cant wait
THABATMAN - 9/19/2010, 12:49 PM
I agree with you @Smallville4ever
TheDarqueOne - 9/19/2010, 1:37 PM
@LEEE

I know what you are saying but I am still looking forward to it. I also understand why people would rather see Darkseid in a movie. Somehow I do not see a long titanic fight because it is Smallville.

For a show that was never supposed to be about real SuperHeros I am just so thrilled that in the end I got to see elements of the JSA, JLA, Legion and Teen Titans. I never expected Smallville to give me that.

The dark Force is Beiber Fever
YourMomNaked - 9/19/2010, 3:03 PM
I thought the Zod finale fight was [frick]ing badass. Shame some people forgot about that bit of redemption! At least this Superman throws a [frick]ing punch ;)


chopfer15 - 9/19/2010, 8:02 PM
@weneedrevelation - dude, awesome clip. Though it isn't sticking to the source material (as usual for dc animation). In the comic that fight is much better, mainly because you finally see Supes cutting loose against a GOD. Don't understand why they would change it, other than to empower supergirl fans. Just dumb. Fun to watch, but dumb to change that much.
Spoiler aler!!!
At that point in the comic, supergirl isn't able to figh
chopfer15 - 9/19/2010, 8:06 PM
Spoiler alert for comic readers!!
At that point in the comic supergirl is supposedly turned to ash by Darkseids omega beams. This inspires superman to beat the holy crap out of darkseid and place him into the Source wall.
The way they did it in that clip is so obviously looking to build up supergirl, and completely misses on the chance to Finally show superman cutting loose.

Where's the hot photo's of girls that look like Supergirl? That's the only reason why I clicked on this article.

Jeezus!
Jolt17 - 9/19/2010, 11:35 PM
LOL @LEEE! I'm just going to say that too!

Guest star of Darth Vader in this episode!
dnno1 - 9/20/2010, 3:50 AM
Supeman opened a can of wupaz eh? Darkseid should have known better than to tug on Superman's cape.
TheDarqueOne - 9/20/2010, 6:25 AM
Nice Jim Croce reference Dnno1.
dnno1 - 9/20/2010, 9:13 AM
@TheDarqueOne - That isn't the first time a reference like that has been made in a DC Animated movie.
chopfer15 - 9/20/2010, 7:50 PM
Totally disagree. The movie isn't called supergirl, it's called apokolips. The reason they did this was ONLY to placate supergirl fans. It doesn't make sense for her to fight darkseid. The redeeming moment for her was jumping in the way of the omega beams. She isn't strong enough to fight darkseid, she'd die from one hit of omega beams. They explained superman being able to survive them because his power level has increased from solar exposure over the years. Supergirl is powerful, but not on that level...yet. It just comes down to DC animation never wanting to show supes cut loose (for what reason I'll never know), and frankly to get girls to like it.
