Smallville - "Icarus"

Season Ten, Episode Eleven: Icarus
Written by:
Genevieve Sparling
Directed by: Mairzee Almas
Original Air Date: December 10, 2010

F.O.A.M.er David Cutler really had his eye on the ball last night, catching this super-quick glimpse of Aquaman/Arthur Curry on last night's episode of Smallville, "Icarus."

We never see actor Alan Ritchson, so this is clearly an extra or stunt player just filling in. But at the end of the episode, we see Clark, Lois, Green Arrow, Star Girl, and all the other heroes knocked out by some mysterious force, ending with a cliffhanger. (On a side note, I like how A.C. accessorizes all his outfits to his traditional Aquaman colors)

While its doubtful we'll be seeing Ritchson as A.C. in the following episode (news would have broken by now), its a reminder--to me at least--that Smallville may still have a surprise or two up its sleeve in its final season, at least when it comes to Aquaman.

Thanks David!

(By the way, you can see the final scene from the show here!)

I'm sorry if I'm being dense, but...what exactly is this photo of? All I can tell is that it's some guy sleeping (dead?) on the left. What are those orange and green things on the lower left?

Russell--Apparently Hawkman died in the episode, so they did a whole "viking funeral" thing for him.

That's Aquaman in the orange and green hoodie at bottom left. Stargirl, GA, Canary, Clark, Lois, and others were also in attendance.
