Doomsday Season Finale Review

Let me start off with saying that I'm still dumbstruck by the results of this episode seriously am in between major letdown and just yelling out ohhhh come on!


First of all I can't agree more on the fact that the fight between Clark and Doomsday was supposed to be epic a free for all of punches and explosions and all we got was basically 3 minutes of Clark getting beat up and then him tackling Doomsday to his supposed grave!!!


Second while I say that I'm dumbstruck it's because basically after the part with Lois vanishing and so forth I felt like I was in a dream or watching one it had no sense to me yes i was taken for a ride but it was like wanting to go to disneyland and be left off at Burger King!!!


I'm be a little bit hard for sure but it's only because I'm such a fan in general of the comics and series that I don't feel like there using all the potential the actually have this season was really good and the managed to get many people once again interested in the series but for the die hard fans that haven't gone anywhere since the beginning the where a lot of WTF moments.


But that doesn't say it wasn't a pretty decent episode it was, even the though it goes against my whole knowing mythology when Jimmy presents the watchtower to Cloe and for them to get back together only to have Davis stab/kill beastly psychotically ( very well acted) Jimmy was definitely the best/epic part of the episode totally outshining what was supposed to be the rest.


The rest of the episode from there sets up the next season with the appearance of the mysterious figure at the end ( which I'm pretty sure is Zod) to Cloe giving the camera to Jimmy little brother and connecting the visit from the Legion Clark did die at least part of him and with all this you can just see it coming next season I bet there gonna start out with Lois in the future seeing the Clark is all cold and Jimmy's little brother being like Jimmy and the world all amok just for her to come back and make a difference etc etc.


Anyway this episode left me with alot to say but it also left me with the notion of hope to see if the can fully bring out there potential in the next season. It was a pretty surprising episode for sure I would love to know wht everyone else thinks...

PS. Lois is plainly in the future as she touched the ring.

Well the 'twist' is that it wasn't the REAL Jimmy Olsen, it was Henry Olsen, presumably the older brother of the real Jimmy Olsen (which makes sense from an age perspective, as Jimmy Olsen was significantly younger than Clark Kent in the comics), also the ring can take you anywhere in time, so past isn't ruled out either.
But most importantly, the fight wasn't 3 minutes long. It was about 1 minute and 30 seconds. Thats from the little girl rescue to the explosion, so that's already being generous. This might be THE single biggest letdown of the series. And the metaphorical death of Clark Kent was one of the cheesiest side steps I've ever heard.
