'Smallville' Season 10, Episode 21 (Series Finale) Recap

'Smallville' ended its ten-season run with an alternately exciting and disappointing finale, which, if you think about it, suits the series perfectly.

The show has always offered a consistent mix of the inspiring and the awful, even from the perspective of a Superman/comic book fan like me.

I loved seeing this story come to life on the tube, and, in some ways, this modern re-telling of Superman's early years was more thrilling and fun than almost any other Superman origin tale. But, at its heart, 'Smallville' was always a sappy teen soap loaded with clunky sci-fi/fantasy mythology elements.

The show carried on in that often clumsy, unsophisticated vein all the way to the end, but there's one thing 'Smallville' always got right – the depiction of Clark Kent as a beacon of light for all humanity.

'Smallville' Showrunners Brian Peterson & Kelly Souders Weigh In on the Series Finale

Tom WellingIt's the end of an era. A decade-long journey reaches its conclusion tonight, and as one door closes on Clark Kent, farm boy, high schooler, "The Blur," another opens to reveal a much larger destiny: The birth of Superman.

To say that expectations are high would be an understatement, and executive producers Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders seem well aware that they have a lot of fans to please with the 'Smallville' series finale.

While it's impossible to satisfy everyone, it's clear that no one involved in the creative process of producing 'Smallville' takes this ending lightly, and as emotional as tonight's episode may be, I believe it will also be a fitting climax for one of TV's most enduring genre shows.

AOL TV caught up with Souders and Peterson this week to discuss the challenges of writing such an eagerly anticipated finale, and what fans can expect from tonight's episode. Because I know that some fans are trying to avoid spoilers and others are desperate for clues, I've split the interview into two parts: spoiler-free at the top, and spoilers at the bottom -- so feel free to join us after the jump to preview the finale!

10 Best. Series. Finales. Ever.

by Kim Potts, posted May 9th 2011 6:00AM
'Stargate Universe' (Mon., May 9, 9PM ET on Syfy) and 'Secret Diary of a Call Girl' (Thurs., May 26, 10:30PM, Showtime) air their series finales this month, but it's the end of 'Smallville' -- which flies off into the TV sunset after 10 seasons (Fri., May 13, 8PM ET on The CW) -- that got us thinking about the memorable ways some of our other shows have bid TV land adieu.

'Smallville' finale

Our top 10 series finales list includes a couple of polarizing picks (you either loved or hated that Journey-blarin', onion-ring-noshing ending for a certain family of New Joisey-ans), a couple we're pretty sure you'll agree are gems and a number one pick that we'd argue is the most clever, most unexpected TV series finale ever.

WARNING: In case you're still catching up with some of these shows on DVD ... there be spoilers ahead.

'Smallville' Star Cassidy Freeman Talks Granny Goodness, Michael Rosenbaum and Tess's Journey

Cassidy FreemanAs the unpredictable Tess Mercer (aka Lutessa Lena Luthor), Cassidy Freeman has spent the past three seasons of 'Smallville' vacillating between villain and trusted Super-sidekick, acting as both CEO of LuthorCorp and the interim brains behind Watchtower in Chloe's absence.

Though her generally straight-laced character has a tendency to keep secrets, the effervescent Chicago native has none of Tess's cool reserve, and she was happy to drop a few hints about what's coming up for Ms. Mercer after 'Smallville' returns from hiatus tonight at 8PM ET on The CW.

Join us after the jump for Freeman's thoughts on meeting Tess's absentee half-brother, Lex Luthor (Michael Rosenbaum) for the first time, her most memorable moments from filming the show, and the conclusion of Tess's story as 'Smallville' comes to an end. Spoilers ahead.
