With Morgan still holding Jordan hostage, Superman and John Irons continue a desperate search for the boy. Lois attempts to use means of her own to locate Jordan. Meanwhile Kyle, Lana, and Johnathan all help out in the fight for Smallville.
Leaving off from our previous episode, the actions of Morgan Edge have left an effect on Jordan. Thanks to the newfound abilities of Edge, Jordan is now possessed by Zeta, Morgan’s father. Not yet in full control of Jordan’s body a mental fight now rests between Zeta and Jordan for full control. Meanwhile, the people of Smallville are standing in protest of the DOD. Wondering why the army hasn’t left the town yet, General Lane remains hesitant to tell people that Edge has escaped and remains a threat. However that secret is soon exposed when Edge returns and immediately starts taking people in the sky for his Defense Council. Selecting some of General Lane’s best soldiers it seems that Edge’s plan is coming together flawlessly.
“Last Sons of Krypton“ once again has no complaints from me. Everyone is involved in the defense of the world and Smallville from Superman to even it’s inhabitants such as Lana and Kyle. In the previous episode the longtime residents were all to ready to move thanks to the actions of the townspeople toward them. We see a dramatic shift in this episode, with Kyle taking Lana by the hand and reassuring her that they can still save this town. Although no longer a firefighter, Kyle still does what he can to save lives in Smallville and the townspeople ultimately forgive him and Lana.
“Last Sons of Krypton” was a great episode and a good way to end the season. Everyone seemed to get the proper ending that they deserved. John Irons even gets a surprise at the end that I hope puts his troubled heart at ease finally. We don’t really get any hints about what’s to come for season two in this finale, but it really wasn’t necessary. This entire season was so amazing I’m quite sure I’ll be watching season two regardless.
