absolutely dumbstruck by this episode. did this recession cut all writers and production budgets? no justice was given to doomsday-superman/ck brawl, that alone is infamy. then there's the ridicule of sending lois to another time, killing jimmy olsen (another superman universe must that is now out of the picture.... lex luthor is gone already) and bringing Zod back. Clark feeling guilty part was ok since that's where they wanted it to go.
As much as I am a fan of Smallville, I would've loved to see the show end. Make Clark learn to fly, turn into superman, have a mega battle with Doomsday and come out the victor and then have him fly around Metropolis now being Superman.
Why make another season of Smallville with Zod if they couldn't make a mega brawl with Doomsday?
