Cyrus' "origins" about being adopted by an elderly couple
sounds suspiciously like the comic book Superman's origin, where for much
of their lives Martha and Jonathan are/were pretty elderly, relatively
Once again Principal Reynolds gets mentioned, repeatedly,
but we never see him.
The meteor rocks are called kryptonite for the first time
in this series.
When Pete asks Clark if "Kryptonite" starts with a "c" or
a "k," it's reminiscent of "Superman: The Movie" when Lois and Superman
were on her terrace and she asked him if "Krypton" was spelled with a "c"
or a "k."
John Glover doesn't appear in this episode.
This is also the first time that meteorites are called
meteorites, instead of the unscientific "meteor rocks".
So where the heck did Cyrus' healing power come from? Are
they natural (like Ryan), or green-meteor radiation induced? Presumably
natural, since he gives off yellow energy and it doesn't hurt Clark
(maybe he's related to that guy in "The Green Mile"). Then again, he was
practically at ground zero at the meteor storm. They never really say.
Just how stupid are these bullies to pick on Cyrus again
after they thought he blew up their truck?
How did the bullies find Cyrus' tower? If they were
following him, wouldn't they have attacked him when he was alone, at any
point before he got where he was going?
Okay, they explain why Cyrus happens to have "dreams"
about Clark's spaceship...but how did he happen to come up with the exact
coordinates of Krypton?
Just as in Rosetta, they talk about Krypton being
"millions of miles" away - this is a pretty trivial distance in
astronomical terms. Why don't they just say "light years"? It's like the
writers don't even seem to have heard of the term.
Chloe says Cyrus planted the magnesium strips behind the
blackboard, but the fire burst out on the front of the blackboard. If
they were on the front, someone would have seen them...so, where were
Clark and Cyrus break into the school and then "sneak"
out...right through the front door under the bright lights and all.
Why is Clark so convinced Cyrus is right? Part of Cyrus'
case rests on the fact that someone's coming from Krypton to pick him up
and "take him home." But Clark knows Krypton disappeared. Does this mean
Clark doesn't trust Swann's explanation, or thinks some other survivors
are going to show up, or doesn't he want to break the bad news to Cyrus,
or what? Still, he seems awfully convinced Cyrus is heading home - maybe
it's just wishful thinking.
So didn't Cyrus' real parents have any family or friends? It seems kind
of odd that in over a decade no one picked up on the fact before Chloe
did that the missing/vaporized kid and Cyrus might be the same.
So the scene where Cyrus comes to heal Whitney's horse,
he rushes over and takes his hat off. The camera pans out as he heals the
horse, then the next scene has him coming up beside Clark on the OPPOSITE
side and he has his hat on securely. Even if he put his hat on quickly,
it's still impossible....bad editing jobs.
