Tonight on Smallville, the long-awaited – although previously revealed – engagement of Lois and Clark has finally arrived!
With ring in tow and a little help from Hawkman to deliver a shower of white rose petals, Clark Kent fell to one knee and proposed to his one true love, Lois Lane. Set in the streets of Metropolis, this superhero proposal took place next to a phone booth. In fact, it was the same phone booth where Lois first realized that Clark was, in fact, The Blur.
Of course, not everything is all “lovey-dovey.”
After the residents of Metropolis were taken over by Darkseid’s influence and after Colonel Slade kidnapped Lois Lane, Clark knew that he could not undertake this heroic endeavor on his own. With that, Clark asked for help from some of his superpowered friends. In this case, those friends included Green Arrow, Stargirl and Hawkman.
With Darkseid growing more powerful with each passing episode, the creation of the Darkseid Elite and the introduction of Colonel Slade (and his semi-transformation into Deathstroke), the malevolent forces have certainly reached their peak in this week’s episode. Unfortunately for Clark, this is only the beginning, as this hero has yet to be tested from the Apokolipian.
As the battle between Clark and Darkseid grows nearer, everyone is waiting to see Clark Kent take the final steps toward fulfilling his destiny for his battle against Prince Uxa. Even though that triumphant transformation isn’t likely to happen to until later on in season 10’s final 12 episodes, the producers are making sure that this heroic journey is as action-packed as ever.
Here’s hoping it stays that way!
The VRA is in full effect and things take an unfortunate turn of events after the Green Arrow (Justin Hartley) tries to stop a mugging but is attacked by citizens for being a super hero. Clark (Tom Welling) discovers that the civilians who attacked Oliver were all marked with a darkness tattoo. Carter Hall (guest star Michael Shanks) and Star Girl (guest star Britt Irvin) return to help Clark deal with Slade’s (guest star Michael Hogan) re-emergence after he kidnaps Lois (Erica Durance).
