Smallville-Finale ”Finalized” [Fanedit]

Another stab at making a shorter version of the Smallville series finale. I’d previously done this with the aborted ”Circle” edit meshing up ”Homecoming” and ”Finale”, and it was up here for a time before FE.org’s Bionicbob pointed out a continuity error which necessitated a takedown…and then of course I lost the edit and the files in a crash so production of it was again stalled.

Fortunately, I happened to find my ”Finale” DVD rip still haunting an old save drive of mine so I thought I’d take out the old motor and see what I could do with just the ”Finale” material. Years of editing experience has given me the confidence to finally put this puppy together in a way that I hope is somewhat compelling and emotionally satisfying

SPOILERS FOR THE EDIT

The key omissions and changes to this particular edit are as follows:

-No possession of Oliver Queen by Darksied

-No flash forwards to Chole reading the comic book to her kid or the scenes at the Planet at the end

-Lois and Clark’s wedding isn’t ruined and delayed for seven years, and is pretty much the penultimate scene

-Lois does not board Airforce One.

-Tess does not erase Lex’s memories.

-Episode ends with Clark getting the suit and the pep talk from his fathers before zooming out of the Fortress

Clark saving the world from Apokolips at the end BEFORE he gets the suit is a trick you can only really pull off because of the artistic choices the actual people in charge made not to commit to showing Clark in the suit fully. You only get a red and blue blur in long distance. While you have to sort of suspend disbelief SLIGHTLY here, I think it’s something you don’t have to dwell too much on. It does the job for me.

Another continuity nitpick is Clark knows where to find Tess…sadly, I don’t have much to really cover exactly how he knows where to find Tess’ car, but with the planet already in orbit around the planet, you can just say he was on his way to the Watchtower before happening to stumble on Tess’ car.

I might redo this edit down ever so slightly the line as there’s something ‘off’ about Tom Welling’s utterance of ”And now the series finale of Smallville”, but for now, here’s what I have so far.

How SPECTRE Should Have Went

And here it is. My SPECTRE fanedit. I cranked this one out in under two days. You’ll find a few things missing from this one…for example Swann’s kidnapping is cut entirely and she accompanies Bond right from the get-go. Also removed is her entire drunken ramble to James before going to bed. The ending is the same as the sample I posted below.

I decided to cut the Mexico fight at the start and just head straight into Bond’s mission for the deceased M in Rome.

Fanedit.org Problems

On the off-chance that any of my friends from Fanedit.org are visiting this blog,  I did as instructed and used the “Contact Us” option when I logged in with my second account (prior to it being merged with my original), but all it did was take me back to the main discussion selection page. I don’t want to be a pest, and since I’ve been instructed not to try to create double accounts again, I’m just going to cut my losses for now and wait until all of the sites’s bugs are fixed….if they ever are. Wraith only just recently managed to get back in after a year so I’m not holding my breath.

 

I will continue to post edits here.
