Poll time everybody. :D

Rank 'em... What's the best SV finale episode so far?

S1 Tempest
S2 Exodus
S3 Covenant
S4 Commencement
S5 Vessel

Now put 'em in order of preference. Here's mine:

1. Commencement
2. Vessel
3. Exodus
4. Covenant
5. Tempest
 
Hmmm... I'll have to watch Vessel a couple of more times before I vote. It certainly didnt have the "wow" factor that Commencement had but the story was so tight.

I think I'm going to go with Vessel. It had a much tighter story line than Commencement. Commencement was super spectacular visually but story wise it was a set up episode.

Vessel
Commencement
Tempest
Exodus
Covenant
 
(1) Commencement

(2) Covenant

(3) Exodus

(4) Vessel

(5) Tempest
 
The best was Commencement

worst was Vessel
 
The best, most spectacular season finale, hands down, was Commencement. Not sure how I feel about Vessel yet. Ask me again when season six starts.
 
Woohoo, I'm the only one that voted for "Covenant".

anywhoo,

1) Covenant - S3
2) Commencement - S4
3) Vessel - S5
4) Exodus - S2
5) Tempest S1


Sorry, the end with the opera music, and Lionel looking evil, and Jonathan being choked,Chloe blowing up,Lex poisoned,Clark being pulled into the cave wall, Lana leaving, and Martha running in slow motion, just took my breath away when it all happened at once.

Plus it was followed up by one of the best season openers of the series.:up:
 
Commencement was by far the best setup for any season to follow. . . .Just wish they would have closed more of the doors it opened :(
 
Ok someone remind me what each season finale ep was about(as in what happened)(I already know about vessel)

Season 1 Finale - "Tempest"

As a massive tornado rumbles towards an unsuspecting Smallville, Clark is on the verge of discovering the first connection to where he came from when the missing piece of the spaceship is found and breathes life into the fallen craft. Meanwhile, Lex is hit with a one-two punch after his father closes the plant and orders him back to Metropolis and the shifty reporter he hired to spy on the Kents discovers Clark's superhuman abilities and the spaceship hidden in the storm cellar. Rock band Remy Zero performs the "Smallville" theme song, their hit single "Save Me," in the episode at the high school formal.

Season 2 Finale - "Exodus"

Apprehension surrounds Clark when he is caught between two choices—his life in Smallville or his destiny to rule the Earth. Meanwhile, circumstances keep Lex and Helen apart as they are planning for their wedding. Also, after being hurt when Clark didn't tell her about Lana and him. Chloe considers Lionel’s offer to investigate Clark.


Season 3 Finale - "Covenant"

Things come to a head in Smallville when Kara, a beautiful girl with superpowers, who claims to be from Krypton, comes to entice Clark to fulfill his destiny. Overwhelmed, Clark turns to his parents for advice but is shocked when Kara forces Jonathan to finally reveal the deal he made with Jor-El. Also, Clark makes a discovery that ultimately redefines his relationship with Lex, and Clark's relationship with Lana takes a final turn.

Season 4 Finale - "Commencement"

Clark begins to piece together the reason he was sent to Earth after he has a nightmare that something horrible is going to happen to Smallville and heads to the cave to seek answers from Jor-El. His biological father tells him he must reunite the three crystals immediately or a disaster of epic proportions will befall the planet and even Clark won't be able to stop it. Meanwhile, Lex first helps Lana escape Smallville after the events of "Forever" then takes shocking action to get one of the crystals away from Lionel. Realizing the crystals are connected to Clark, Chloe tries to stop Lex from discovering the truth.


Season 5 Finale - "Vessel"

Brainiac unleashes a deadly virus, which will kill millions of people, and refuses to give Clark the vaccine unless he agrees to release General Zod. Clark turns to Lionel, who once again channels Jor-El. Meanwhile, Lex is stunned by his newfound powers and shares the discovery with Lana, who decides to stand by her new man, unaware of the shocking turn Lex’s life is about to take due to Brainiac’s evil machinations.

Season 5 Finale - "Vessel" - Beamed off Earth by Zod

For those who dont want to read. that much :D
 
I didn't understand Vessel. It may be because I haven't seen all of the season 5 episodes.
 
Commencement was by far, the best finale.

It was 90 minutes, also.
It left me wanting more, and the Batman Begins clips at the end were great, too.
 
Commencement was only about 50 minutes minus commercials, Vessel was about 43.

And how can you determine its quality on a Batman commercial.
 
1. 522 - Vessel
2. 422 - Commencement
3. 121 - Tempest
4. 322 - Covenant
5. 223 - Exodus

All great episodes though.

First off all, I didn't say Commencement was good because of the Batman Begins clips.
I just said they were great to see at the end of the episode.

Like putting the extra icing on the cake.
 
My rankings:
1. Commencement-loved the pace, the building tension. And the arrival of the ship portended great things that was later followed up by SM's strongest season.
2. Covenant-the only thing that puts this one over Vessel for me, is the Lionel haircutting scene. It was reminiscent of the Godfather movies.
3. Vessel-For an hour, this was a great episode. There were a few things that I would've done differently, but over all great entertainment. SM still has some life left in it.
4. Exodus-I loved the airplane scene, when Lex learns about the treachery of his Mrs. Luthor.
5. Tempest-Not a bad closer, but the following seasons each ramped it up.

I thought that too. It was very Lexcentric, but I'd be interested to know your reason Serene.
