General Season Finale Spoilers!
Any hints on what villains are coming to Smallville?
A few fan faves will be back next season, but we’ll have to wait a while to find out the rest. Says Brian Peterson, “We introduced several this year that we’ll probably bring back next year. We loved Zatanna. We looked at a few others that we want to introduce, but we’re going to wait for Comic-Con to release all that.” One hero you won’t see stopping by is Batman. Though the producers really want to have him on the show, Kelly Sounders says there’s still trouble with the franchise crossovers: “Obviously everybody wants to keep all the franchises going and give the fans what they want in each. If that opening ever, ever occurs, we’ll be all over it.” Source: Kristin on E!Online
Can you give more scoop on the Smallville finale death?
Just that there was a consensus in the comments section of our recent Smallville item about which character is dying, and it was not correct. That’s all you’ll get on that matter, but we will tease that executive producers Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders officially confirmed the return of Tom Welling and Erica Durance, so count them safe. Speaking of the finale, Cassidy Freeman says Tess Mercer is on the hunt for Davis, “Because I want Clark to accept the fact that he is Superman, and I don’t think he can do that until he fights Doomsday.” Throw down!

We get some Justice League action in the season finale airing May 14, and a bit of injustice is on the way, too, when Jessica Parker Kennedy returns as Plastique for the May 7 episode titled “Injustice.” (TV Guide)

Clip From ‘Smallville’ 8.20: Beast
In April 30 episode of ‘Smallville’, Clark finds out that Davis is still alive and Oliver tells him to kill Doomsday once again and for all.
Deemed as a dark episode of “Smallville“, “Beast” unleashes one of its scenes. Upon discovering that Chloe is aiding Davis to run away from the city, Clark approaches Oliver to reassure himself about the supposed death of Davis. Oliver convinces Clark that he did bury him in the ground himself, but Clark said the site is now empty. Clark is devastated when finding out that Chloe is protecting Davis. In an interview with E!, executive producer Brian Peterson said, “We want in the audience to the question is Chloe doing this because she’s starting to fall for Davis, or is Chloe doing this because she’s really protecting Clark? I think we walk that line pretty carefully, I hope.” Also in the episode airing April 30, Oliver discovers Jimmy breaking into Chloe’s apartment, but things get rapidly worse after Davis jumps from the shadows and attacks both of them.

Smallville: Will Chloe Survive?
Source: Kristin on E!Online
Smallville has taken a dark turn this season, especially with the introduction of Doomsday (Sam Witwer), who is the only DC villain able to kill Superman. That would seem like a rough break for Tom Welling, except that Clark Kent is not one of the two characters kicking the bucket in the season finale. Fellow fan favorite Chloe Suliivan (Allison Mack), on the other hand, has been considered very much in the line of fire, especially since producers tell us next season’s stories line up closely with the DC mythology—the same Superman mythology that does not include Chloe Sullivan. However, there’s hope on the horizon! Executive producers Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders teased some upcoming storylines for Chloe that could land her in the Watchtower next season, instead of a grave. That’s not the case for two other characters on Smallville who will be saying goodbye for good, and Brian teases there may actually be a third death. Plus, find out why Lois (Erica Durance) and Clark fans can expect to squee in the finale…
Are Clark and Doomsday throwing down in the finale?
Brian Peterson: It’s what everybody has probably been watching for the whole season. There will be a big throwdown between Doomsday and Clark.
Kelly Souders: Clark meets his match.
How does Chloe come between Clark and Davis?
KS: I think Chloe takes a very integral part in trying to keep the two fated nemeses apart from each other. It’s hard; trouble just seems to find Clark Kent.
BP: We want in the audience to the question is Chloe doing this because she’s starting to fall for Davis, or is Chloe doing this because she’s really protecting Clark? I think we walk that line pretty carefully, I hope.
Let’s talk about the major death. Is it two people dying or maybe one is just leaving the show?
KS: I will say it’s Smallville, anything can happen, but I don’t expect a dry eye in the house. It’s not one of those things where someone just goes down and walks out of it the next minute, unfortunately. There’s a lot of doom in Doomsday.
Many of the fans are worried that Chloe is dying since she is not apart of the Superman mythology.
KS: It’s a scary future for Chloe Sullivan because you never know what’s going to happen because of that exact fact.
BP: She has put herself in the middle of harms way this year.
KS: All we can say is her tragic arc has a very tragic ending this year.
So it could be either Chloe or Davis dying?
BP: Well there are two deaths, it could be one or the other, or both.
KS: Both or someone else could be thrown in that mix.
BP: The other thing I will just say for the people who watch on a deeper level, there’s a metaphorical death that happens on the show as well, so hopefully people can dig deep into their intellect and psyche and have fun with that.
KS: Actually all of [what happens] is in order to line up with the DC mythology, we’ll throw that out there too. Obviously we created our own version of Doomsday on the show, but ultimately, everything we do in the finale is in order to line up with the DC mythology.
So Chloe may never really find love then?
KS: Chloe’s love life is just one of the most doomed elements in television history. She has not had a lot of luck in love and I’m afraid that in the finale, she doesn’t get much luckier. Maybe someday, you never know. I’ll just tease that.
Heard that! Chloe could be sticking around! How about Clark and Lois’ love life?
KS: For Clark/Lois fans, I think they will be having many fits in the finale. We just watched part of it cut together and I have to say there’s one of the most quintessential Clark/Lois moments in the finale. It’s so good. They have such great chemistry.
Is there anything in the finale that’s really going to shock the fans?
BP: It’s a pretty heavy season finale, but I think it will launch a really great season next year.
KS: You’re definitely going to see the Justice League in a way you’ve never seen them before. Clark and Oliver’s (Justin Hartley) relationship is going to really be pushed to the brink. I think it’s going to be really shocking for the fans to see the season finale. Clark definitely emerges in a different place than he started the season in. [Next season] he has to overcome, he has to be Superman.
Just out of professional curiosity, does that mean we’ll see Tom Welling in some spandex tights next year? I know the fans really want to see that.
BP: Probably not as soon as you expect, but you never know. The one person who doesn’t want to see that unfortunately is Tom Welling, so that’s a bigger conversation.
Has there been talk of other members of the Justice League crossing over in the finale or next season?
BP: We started what will hopefully be a new focus of the show that we’ll be bringing in allies for Clark next year. We had a lot of DC villains this year and a lot of DC heroes and we’re hoping to continue that into next year. We teased a little piece of Chloe and her arc and how she might play a role in that next year.
Okay, heard it again! “Next year!” She must survive! So as far as next season, will Clark be running around saving the rest of the world and not just Metropolis next season?
BP: Clark may have some significant obstacles in his destiny next year. It may be the darkness before the rise of Superman. He’s going to face probably his darkest hour I would say. He really was on a trajectory this year, but he’s made some decisions that put him down a different path.
KS: He’s going to be paying the price for some rather large mistakes from the finale.
