Storyline

Still gravely pondering his place in life, Clark lets Lois drag him along to their Smallvillle high school reunion.

Trivia

Whilst Clark is sitting on his throne in the school gymnasium, Brainiac 5 causes time to slow down dramatically. As Clark gets up from his throne, he removes his crown & casually throws it onto the throne behind him. The crown falls in normal time & also bounces off, and re-falls onto the throne in normal time, despite time being severely slowed down. See more »

Goofs

When Suzanne Capra is talking to Clark she pushes her hair behind her shoulder to reveal her name tag. In the next shot when she gives Clark his name tag her hair is back in front of her shoulder and then behind it again in the next shot. See more »

Quotes

Lois Lane: Hero haters. Just when you think the world couldn't get more upside down, right?
Clark Kent: People probably don't want to put their hope in someone who's gonna let them down.
Lois Lane: He never would. Let us down. The Blur, I mean. And this person, for one, is gonna stand by her hero no matter how much mud they sling.
Clark Kent: Why?
Lois Lane: Because that's what you do when you believe in someone.

Homecoming
5 May 2011 | by ColcatronSee all my reviews

During the season 5, Smallville aired it's 100th episode "Reckoning" which was one of the most serious and epic stories, if not THE most epic story in the show's ten year history. It had drama, action and tragedy. Many people still believe "Reckoning" was the greatest of all Smallville episodes. It may have been possible to top it for the 200th episode, but in the end the producers chose not to try and compete. Instead we have "Homecoming", which is a fun throwback to the early seasons of Smallville.

Two major characters from the past return, Brainiac and Greg the bug boy, who appeared all the way back in the 2nd episode of the series "Metamorphosis". Brainiac takes Clark on an It's a Wonderful Life journey to reflect on his past, present and future. There are moments where the tone is heavy, but for the most part this is a light hearted story with many nods to past seasons. It was great to see the Smallville High set again, and the twist with the bug boy was a refreshing surprise.

Even though I've been watching Smallville since the beginning, and continue to go back and watch old episodes, it's easy to forget how far this show has come, and how much it's changed over the years. "Homecoming" is a nice reminder of the simpler show from classic seasons.
