Smallville Season 10 and Final Season Spoilers!

SMALLVILLE: Season ten promises the classic reuniting of the timeless romance between Clark and Lois, and brings Clark face-to-face with his destiny as he overcomes his final trials and forges the iconic identity that will be known for all time.

There will a time jump and return to the present timeline in Season 10

Breaking: ‘Smallville’ to end next season

The CW was hoping to announce at its upfront presentation Thursday that next season of Smallville — the show’s 10th — would be its last. But Welling — who was expected to deliver said announcement in person — jumped the gun and blabbed it to the press last night.

“Season 10 of Smallville will be the last season,” Welling told HollywoodLife.com last night at an event in Beverly Hills.

‘Smallville’ exclusive: Allison Mack bids farewell (but there’s a catch)

allison-mack

Image Credit: Jack Rowland/The CWI’ve got good news and bad news for fans of Smallville heroine Allison Mack. The actress has opted not to return as a series regular for the show’s 10th and final season. That’s the bad news. Here’s the good: You have not seen the last of Chloe — not by a long-shot “It’s amazing to think that Chloe Sullivan and I have been one in the same for over a third of my life,” says Mack in an exclusive statement. “I’m truly humbled by the love and loyalty of all the fans whose enthusiasm has carried me — along with a cast and crew which has become my second family — over the past 9 and a half years. Out of respect for the amazingly loyal fans and the place I will always have in my own heart for Chloe, I’m coming back for several episodes next season to tie up Chloe’s Smallville legacy properly. “It’s been a life-changing ride,” Mack concludes, “and I look forward to what lies ahead with the strength of a ‘superhero’ as my foundation.” Speculation about Mack’s uncertain Smallville future has been running rampant for months. Exec producer Brian Peterson recently told me he was “very optimistic” that Mack — the show’s last original female cast-member — would be back in the fall.

Smallville Season Finale Recap: 9.22 “Salvation”

Source: TVGuide.com
clickWhen Zod unleashes his army of Kandorians in the Season 9 finale of Smallville, Chloe calls in some old friends to help Clark win the battle. Posing as the Blur, Zod asks Lois to steal the Book of Rao from Clark, though when she confronts his actions, he refuses full disclosure. Meanwhile, Oliver disappears as he and Chloe try to fight the Kandorians, and Tess gets burned while trying to stop Zod.

The episode opens in the year 2013 and Perry White is the editor-in-chief over at the Daily Planet. Lois Lane is the big girl on campus, hunting down stories on politicians, though that changes quickly when she reads a headline saying Lex Luthor is running for President (What?!). Just then, a damaged plane is on a collision course with the Daily Planet. Before Lois can find her go-to photographer (Olsen!), Superman (in the iconic super suit) saves the day.

OK, so it was just a dream Clark was having, though when he wakes up, he finds a note from him mother saying “If you choose to stay.” Along with the note is a package, whose contents reflect the Superman ‘S’ in Clark’s eyes. The suit officially exists!

Lois goes to meet faux-Blur after receiving the note from him in the last episode. She is shocked to learn that Zod is the Blur, and though she’s skeptical at first, he convinces her to help him steal the Book of Rao from Clark. He says that Clark is trying to uncover his identity and reveal it to the world.

Over at Watchtower, Chloe tries to track down the Kandorians with Oliver’s help. Though he’s on a plane, Oliver decides it’s high time to get back to Metropolis to protect Watchtower, and by that he means Chloe.

Clark arrives insisting that the Kryptonite weapons won’t work for long on the Kandorians. He shows Chloe the Book of Rao, but he doesn’t want to use it because he’s seen his destiny, which is to save the people of Earth. She questions whether every trial Jor-El has put Clark through has led to this point: Leave Earth and lead the Kandorians on a new planet.

Zod goes to the Fortress to destroy the crystals Clark uses to speak with Jor-El. He fears that Clark will learn the true secret of the Book of Rao. He’s quickly interrupted by Tess, who is actually there to stop Zod from hurting Clark. After Tess beats him around with Kryptonite brass knuckles, Zod takes his revenge by burning her alive.

Clark goes to the Fortress to get advice from his father, but he’s too late: Zod has already destroyed the crystals, which also happened to be the only way to activate the Book of Rao. Zod appears, telling Clark that the war has arrived and his people are actively readying to take over the world. Though Clark tries to convince him that he can still get redemption, it doesn’t make an impression on Zod, who zooms off, leaving Clark to discover an unconscious Tess.

Back at the Daily Planet, Lois receives a plane ticket from Perry White asking for her to come to Africa. Lois uses this Clark-free time to do some digging on his computer. She discovers that he really has been looking into the Blur, which worries her.

Tess wakes up in the hospital and profusely apologizes to Clark for going to the Fortress. She reveals that he doesn’t need the Fortress to active the Book of Rao. She stole a console of crystals the Kandorians were planning to use in the towers and hid them in Clark’s crow’s nest. “Clark, this is my last chance to atone for my sins,” she says. “You are the only one that can save us and you’ve run out of time. The war has already begun.”

We then see flashes of the Great Wall of China, the Parthenon in Athens, the pyramids in Eygpt, and even the Washington Monument in D.C. with Kryptonian symbols burned into them by the Kandorians: They are claiming their territory.

At Watchtower, the Justice members phone in for a meeting with Chloe and Oliver. Stargirl, Black Canary, Hawkman, Cyborg and the Martian Manhunter are in the different locations branded by the Kandorians, who have since left. While Hawkman and Cyborg think they should strike first and ask questions later, Chloe insists they wait for Clark’s say-so to make a move.

Clark reveals to the group that he’s going to use the Book of Rao, which will transport him and his people off Earth. He says each of them will need to stand up, take his place and work together to achieve his destiny. They each salute Clark before signing off, though Chloe isn’t really in a saluting mood. “You’ve got to let her go, Clark,” says Ollie. “She’s trying to be strong. When your oldest friend leaves forever, there’s really no way to say goodbye.” Speaking of, Ollie pushes Clark to see Lois one last time.

Flash across town, one of Zod’s Kandorian underlings tells him that communications between the Justice members have all been cut off, leaving Clark alone in Metropolis. From this conversation, we learn that Zod has made the Kandorians believe that Clark will use the Book of Rao to destroy them.

Chloe freaks out when she learns the satellites are all out, but Ollie has a backup plan. He launched a satellite solely dedicated to Watchtower. That’s quite a present! Unfortunately, Ollie has to turn on the transponders at the station to get it running. Chloe gives him walkie-talkies to stay in touch, and they share a sweet kiss before he takes off.

Elsewhere, Lois digs through Clark’s things and discovers Virgil Swann’s journal written in Kryptonian, which includes a picture of the Book of Rao. Clark interrupts her investigation wanting to tell her something important: He’s always needed her.

Lois springs the news on him that Perry White has offered her a job in Kenya. Knowing this will help the transition, Clark basically tells her to go. She retorts that she would stay for him if they stopped keeping secrets from each other, but he coveys that leaving would be the best thing for her.

Tess flatlines at the hospital, succumbing to her injuries from Zod. Just after the doctors call time of death, a mysterious woman, who had been knitting outside of Tess’ room all day, enters. (Was that Martha Kent? She looked a little too broad-shouldered.) A mystery for next season.

Using the walkie-talkies, Chloe leads Ollie through the air ducts to the panel where he can turn on the satellite. Just as he shows up as a green dot on her computer, dozens of red dots also pop up. As they close in on him, Ollie yells that he loves her, with her yelling back the same. (Ah, Brian Peterson did tell me they would be forced to take their relationship to the next level.) “Chloe, they’re not Kandorian,” he yells before disappearing. Wait, what? Yeah, that also won’t be answered until next season.

Clark finds the crystals on the roof top, but realizes that Lois had removed the Book of Rao from his pocket. Meanwhile, Lois meets with Zod near the phone booth, though quickly realizes that he isn’t really the Blur. She even tests him before giving him the Book of Rao, which really peeves Zod, who says he doesn’t care whether she lives or dies.

In one of the coolest slow motion sequences, Zod shoves Lois across the street, then Clark throws him in the air with enough time to catch Lois before she slams into the phone booth. He sets her down and zips off into the shadows. She wakes to see him hiding in the alley and asks for his forgiveness for her misguided betrayal. Instead of speaking, he pulls her into a romantic kiss. (Now, I’m sitting here thinking, you must recognize his kiss…) The Blur zooms off, with Lois left saying, “Clark.”

Clark returns to the roof top with the Book of Rao, but Zod quickly arrives with his army. Clark tries to convince the Kandorians that the Book of Rao will not harm them, and that Zod has been a traitor all along. Zod, who must’ve forgotten that his people can now hear every sound, slips up: “Faora was a traitor. Do you think I wanted to kill my own child?”

One by one, the Kandorians remove their arm bands, giving their allegiance to Clark. “Kal-El, take us home,” says Vala. Clark places the Book of Rao in the crystals, which beams the Kandorians up. Zod has one last trick up his sleeve, though. Harnessing the power of blue Kryptonite in a knife prevents Clark and Zod from ascending with the others. It also removes their powers so we get a man-to-man fight. Blood is drawn and the battle wages on with Zod seemingly in the lead.

Clark finds himself backed onto a ledge, with Zod nearly about to stab him with the blue Kryptonite sword. When the knife impales Clark, Zod smirks thinking he has won, but really, Clark did it so he’d fall off the building with the kryptonite, enabling Zod to be beamed up with the rest of the Kandorians. I have a feeling he’ll meet sweet justice on the other side.

And as Clark falls from the building, the scene fades to black. Another season of Smallville has left us on a great cliffhanger, with plenty of time to discuss the revelations that unfolded:

Here’s my list of five topics to ponder between now and the fall:

-Who attacked Oliver?
-Did Lois really figure out that Clark was the Blur?
-Who will be there to remove the blue Kryptonite knife from Clark’s gut?
-Is Tess really dead?
-Who was that mysterious woman in Tess’ hospital room?

Exclusive: ‘Smallville’ boss ‘very optimistic’ Chloe will be back!

by Michael Ausiello

allison-mackImage Credit: Jack Rowland/The CWSmallvile fans worried about Allison Mack’s uncertain future on the show can collectively breathe a sigh of relief simma down now. And here’s why…

Executive producer Brian Peterson tells me he’s “very optimistic” the actress — who’s in the thick of contract talks as we speak — will be bringing Chloe back next fall for the show’s 10th season.

Asked whether it’s essentially a done deal (which is what I’m hearing), Peterson says, “We’ve learned the hard way not to say [it’s official] until everything is signed and dotted. So the best we can say is we’re really optimistic. And so is Allison.”

Translation: Chillax. She’s returning.

Smallville – Mega Buzz – 4/27

Seems like Clois sex is on the table on Smallville. Is it going to happen this season?
ADAM: As you point out, both Lois and Clark definitely seem up for it. As for whether they’ll actually seal the deal this year, there’s just one little problem, according to executive producer Brian Peterson: “They keep trying, but sadly and ironically, the Blur has come between Lois and Clark [to prevent them from] ever consummating their relationship.” I’ll leave you to argue (cry?) about Peterson’s use of the word “ever.”
Source: TVGuide

Smallville – MegaBuzz – 4/20

ADAM: Although Chloe and Oliver have been taking it slow, given their respective rocky pasts, executive producer Brian Peterson says their relationship is “forced to the next step” in the season finale. And don’t worry: The return of the Black Canary doesn’t pose a threat. “Their relationship is still pretty fresh, and they’re still trying to figure out how they feel about each other,” Peterson says. “So it feels premature to go there, but that’s definitely a possibility for future episodes.”

Smallville – First Look – Martha Kent Returns Home


Martha Kent (Annette O’Toole) returns home to Smallville on May 7, and, much to Clark’s surprise, mom’s got a new boyfriend — Perry White (Michael McKean)! Here’s your exclusive first look at what I’m sure will go down as one of the show’s most awkward double dates ever. (Meta trivia: O’Toole and McKean are married in real life.)

Smallville: Martha Kent and Perry White’s Return Shake Up Lois and Clark’s Relationship

Source: TV Guide

Smallville

This week’s episode of Smallville brings together Lois Lane (Erica Durance) and Perry White (Michael McKean) for their first meeting, though Perry’s return comes as a surprise to Clark as he shows up on the arm of his mother, Martha Kent (Annette O’Toole). TVGuide.com caught up with O’Toole and McKean — whose real-life married couple banter is hilarious — to get the details on the evolution of their characters since we last saw them and if they’ll return for more next season. Plus: Who really is the Red Queen?

Smallville producer: The finale is Clark’s redemption hour

TVGuide.com: The Smallville fans are very excited to have Martha Kent back on the show. How does it feel returning?
Annette O’Toole:
It’s so great to come back. I love the people up there and it was really hard to leave them originally. There was a lot of hugging and kissing before we actually started work. I haven’t actually done any TV or film since then, I’ve only been doing theater, so I thought, “When they say action, will I know what to do?” I did. [Laughs]

TVGuide.com: Michael, we haven’t seen you since Season 3. How does it feel getting to play this iconic moment of Lois and Perry coming together?
Michael McKean:
It’s great. I grew up reading Superman comics. Actually in Season 2, mainly due to my wife’s incessant bitching, they were talking about casting me as the principal of the high school, and it didn’t work out because I had a scheduling problem. I’m so glad because now I get to be Perry White for God’s sakes! I’m in the Daily Planet office, with the globe and everything. It was pretty intense. Plus, the fact of coming back after six years and seeing that Tom Welling has not aged a day [Laughs], it’s kind of infuriating.

Smallville word games: What is Clark’s destiny?

TVGuide.com: What you can tell us about how Lois and Perry will interact?
McKean:
At first she’s just this pretty girl that Clark has hooked up with, and gradually I start realizing that she’s really sharp. She’s the one-in-a-million kind of person who is born to knock over the ant hills and really see what’s going on inside. She’s a Woodward to my Bernstein, I guess.
O’Toole: You look a little more like Woodward. Taller.
McKean: I’m an old WASP is what you’re saying.
O’Toole: Yeah, well. [Laughs]
McKean: There’s a scene where I’m filling Lois in on something I’m working on and we realize there’s a confluence there that maybe we’re working on different aspects of the same story. It was a really fun scene to play.

TVGuide.com: Martha’s role is definitely more than just being a mother now. She’s a U.S. senator and a secret government operative. What do you think of this evolution?
O’Toole:
It’s fabulous! It’s something she probably should’ve been doing all along. She was studying to be a lawyer, decided not to do that. She threw herself into her marriage and the farm, and then wanted to have a family, that didn’t work out. She found this baby —
McKean: A super-baby! [Laughs]
O’Toole: Yeah, I love that she’s always going to be his mother, and always going to put his interests ahead of everything else in her life, but she’s got this other thing, too. When the kids grow up and leave, you’ve got to have your own life. She lost her soul mate, so I’m so glad that Martha has this. She’s doing good things in Washington.

Watch full episodes of Smallville

TVGuide.com: Is being the Red Queen a good thing? The promos seem to indicate that it’s Martha.
O’Toole:
I can’t talk about that, but I can say that Martha is a force for good. She’ll go as far as she thinks is necessary to protect Clark’s secret.
McKean: How far would any woman go to protect her child?
O’Toole: That sounds like a good blurb for a Lifetime movie. We’ve been in that movie, haven’t we?
McKean: I think so. [Laughs]

TVGuide.com: How will Perry and Martha’s visit affect Lois and Clark’s relationship?
McKean:
It’s definitely a turning point for Lois, and to a certain extent, it’s a turning point for Perry as well. The impact will be seen down the line.

TVGuide.com: Is Martha against Clark revealing his identity to Lois?
O’Toole:
No. She wants him to be happy. Martha’s greatest wish is for her son to be normal and loved. She’s not going to live forever, so she wants him to be happy.

Read our Smallville recaps

TVGuide.com: Would Martha rather he put his relationship first or save the world first?
McKean:
Why can’t you have both?
O’Toole: It’s like, can’t a woman be a mother and have a career? [Laughs] Why can’t you save the world and have a girlfriend?

TVGuide.com: Because Smallville has been renewed for Season 10, would either of you return next year?
O’Toole:
No one has said a word to us.
McKean: We’re going to have to see how they approach Season 10 and then we’ll know. We’re not being coy, by the way; we really don’t know. [Whispers] We have to pretend we’re not interested so they’ll get serious [Laughs]. We’re just teasing. We both have things lined up that we’re planning on doing and we’ll just see what’s possible.

Will Michael Rosenbaum or Kristin Kreuk return to Smallville? And will Allison Mack be on the new season?
A source tells me “no chance” for Kristin, even though she’s free now after being recast in Josh Schwartz’s new pilot. I’m also told that Allison Mack has not yet signed a deal for season 10, but, “I’m sure she’ll be there,” says this reliable insider. As for the bald beauty that is Lex Luthor, the answer is…Keep the hope alive? Says show runner Brian Peterson: “We have never ever given up hope, but at this point, that’s all it is. We have a great relationship with Michael; it just hasn’t happened yet. I would never give up hope until the final second.” It’s not the hell yes! we were hoping for, but it’s better than a no, right?

Massena in Austin, Texas: Producers have claimed Tess and Chloe are a lot alike on Smallville. What do they mean, and why are they having them interact more?
“That’s dead-on,” show runner Brian Peterson tells us. “They’re a lot alike and yet very different. Tess always has to be hooked to a hero, always supporting some kind of hero, whether they end up being good or bad. But Chloe has moved into becoming a hero in her own right. We haven’t quite developed Tess’s character as much as we’re going to.” Still, there’s more to come. “People will have a lot of fun in these last few episodes because there’s a lot of Tess and Chloe.”

See larger image With nine seasons running, the writers of “” are moving forward with Clark Kent’s transition to become the man of steel. A photo is released via LilMissX to reveal the first look of Clark in his Superman outfit. Instead of the red and blue tights, the outfit is pitch black with a silver “S” symbol on the chest. In the promo released for the ninth season, Chloe told Clark to embrace his Kyrptonian side and accept the fact that he is destined to save the world.

General Spoilers

Smallville – Live Comic-Con Panel

Brian and Kelly just teased that we may see a living Jor-El in the new season. (Eyes peeled in episode 2 for news on that)

Callum Blue tells us he is Major Zod, not general yet. He’s younger and more manic.

Erica says Lois comes back from future w/ amnesia and she’ll be getting flashes she doesn’t understand.

Justin Hartley says Clark and Oliver will never be best friends

Chloe and Clark’s friendship now? “They have a little bit of a rocky start,” so tune in, says Kelly.

Brian says they are thinking of doing a Green Arrow sidekick story as we speak.

Brian: “Just as Clark falls for Lois, she’s falling for someone else.” (Superman, perhaps?)

Q: Is there a chance for love for Clark and Chloe? Allison says that’s “dead in the water” and Clark is a little occupied with other women. Chloe will be dealing with the loss of Jimmy and stepping into more of a powerful position, so she won’t have time for a love interest. “Chloe and Oliver?” Justin wants it!

Q: Will there be a Smallville movie? They didn’t answer. (Hmm, curious that they kept mum).

Man dressed as Superman asks about the new suit Clark wears this season, and mentions that spandex is comfy. Says Kelly: This show is about the origins. They know there is a long arc to become really who Superman becomes. It’s a bumpy road. he’s not going straight to a tailor and figure it out the first time, hence the all black suit.

Justin says we will be seeing a lot more of the Green Arrow this season. “Last year I had a chance to play hime broken down a little bit,” but they jumped out of it and he figured out his problem. We find out this year that Ollie is struggling and that will go on for a while. Brian says in the first eight episodes you “will see him hit rock bottom.”

Q: What new characters from the DC universe this year? Metallo for the first two episodes, return Toyman and Roulette, says Brian.

Kelly says they actually had two different episodes for the season eight finale because they weren’t sure if they would end the show last year. They do have a series finale planned if season nine is the last, but that can change if they are picked up. Brian says they’re not worried about “stalling.”

Geoff Johns just came up to the panel. Geoff says he’s writing another episode. He wrote “Legion.” This year will be “Justice Society of America.” He gets Callum to say “Kneel before Zod.” For everything he’s heard about this season, Geoff says, “It’s going to kickass.”

Q: When is Clark going to fly? Brian says tune in to the season premiere because they address it then.

Tom Welling will be directing two episodes this season. Allison says Tom is her favorite director. He’s very supportive and gets very excited on set. Brian tells us Allison will be directing this season as well.

Q: Is Lex really dead? Brian says we know from mythos that Lex is “absolutely not dead.”

Kelly says you will be seeing more of Erica this season. 18 episodes in total.

Erica on Lois and Clark: “I think you guys are going to be pretty excited this year. lois is dealing with being smitten with Superman and still finds Clark irritating.” This season is going to be “spicy”

Zod returns: “Kneel before Zod!” Callum shown fighting with Tess. Lois is fighting in the future. Chloe with the gun. Oliver and Lois seem to be getting closer. Brian Austin Green looks freaky. Love scene between Lois and Clark. Showing a version of Clark in the future. Was that Lex on screen? Clark in a black cape with the S on his chest.

Sneak peek: Montage of Clark turning into the red/blue blur and his path to becoming a hero. “And he is not alone” Justice League is there with him! Aquaman, Black Canary, Impulse, Cyborg, Zatanna, Martian Manhunter, Supergirl and Green Arrow, plus the Legion. Don’t forget Watch tower.

Comic Con 2009: Clark Has New Suit on ‘Smallville’

For the first time since the show’s premiere, Tom Welling came in support of the panel at San Diego Comic Con.

Source: Ace Showbiz

Comic Con 2009: Clark Has New Suit on 'Smallville' See larger image” was one of the panels at San Diego Comic Con that came up with numerous hints for the new season. The session was attended by the main cast such as , , , , Cassidy Freeman; producers Kelly Souders and Brian Peterson; as well as new addition Callum Blue. Leading the presentation was a trailer which contains a lot of recap scenes from the previous season and a new footage from the ninth season. One interesting fact shared through the trailer is that Clark will don a new suit which is totally different from the old red and blue. It is pitch black with the silver symbol “S” across the chest, topped with black trench coat. There was also a glimpse of as the new villain, Metallo, whose main source of power is kryptonite.

After the screening and a talk about the stars’ auditions, the discussion moved to how the characters will relate to each other on the new season. Souders revealed Chloe and Clark will be strained, explaining further “They have a little bit of a rocky start.” Mack said their relationship will be “dead in the water” especially with Chloe needing time to recuperate from losing Jimmy. Chloe and Clark also share very little quality time because he will be busy with other females, one of them being Lois. Speaking of her character’s development, Durance spilled “Lois is dealing with being smitten with Superman and still finds Clark irritating.”

Hartley shared that there will be a lot more of Green Arrow on season 9, as in the case of Toyman, Roulette and two other new D.C. characters. Particularly for Arrow, the producers are brewing a story of him as a sidekick although Oliver develops a rift with Clark due to their love for the same woman, Lois. Blue, who is new to the cast to play General Zod, dropped a major hint when he revealed that his Zod comes from way back from “Superman 2”. He has yet to acquire his power and has no idea who Clark Kent is. The young Zod brings troops from Krypton’s past which he cannot quite control. Mack will again take a directing role this season, so will Welling who is now a co-executive producer. Sounders added that they are prepared of a series finale should season 10 is not in order.

Clark Kent’s new nemesis in Smallville’s ninth season will be Phantom Zone reject General Zod, played by 31-year-old Brit Callum Blue, whose credits include Dead Like Me and The Tudors. But seems Supes may have another force to reckon with within his very own junior Justice League. Justin Hartley, who plays Oliver Queen/Green Arrow, recently met with his producers who told him, “Oliver will be more and more fed up with the whole [superhero] thing and on a downward spiral. I also hear he may be revisiting the Lois [romance].” Hmm…seems a poison arrow could be headed right through Clark’s heart. Who do you like Lois with? Superman or Green Arrow?

Clark Kent is getting a little obsessed as the Red Blue Blur, his budding crime-fighting alias. “He is trying a little too hard to be a hero, and is leaving the rest of his life behind,” executive producer Brian Peterson told the magazine. John Corben (a.k.a. Metallo) is a new reporter at the Daily Planet who ends up with a Kryptonite heart. As for his backstory: “We know that there’s multiple versions of Metallo,” executive producer Kelly Souders explained. “We picked one of the different versions and I think people will realize which one after the first episode.” Regarding Zod: “We had a little peek at who Zod was a couple of seasons ago, which fans will remember. But this a different incarnation of Zod,” Peterson said. “We’re introducing him as Major Zod-this is before he became General Zod.” Souders added that “over the course of the season, the venomous side of Zod rises because he experiences a few key betrayals with our beloved characters.” Source: TV Guide Magazine

According to Justin Hartley, a portion of the ninth season will be about Oliver confronting his demons. “I think he is going to struggle with the things he has been afforded [as a result of] his powers,” he says. “He has sacrificed things and done things that haunt him… It’s bad stuff. We need to get to the bottom of it.” (Michael Ausiello)

The producers say that soon after mild-mannered John Corben (Brian Austin Green) begins his Daily Planet job, his fate takes a horrific twist that will change his destiny forever. (TV Guide)

Kneel Before Zod! Callum Blue Cast as Next Smallville Baddie

The CW confirms that Callum Blue, a British actor you may know from the WB’s short-lived Related or Showtime’s Secret Diary of a Call Girl, has been cast as Phantom Zone baddie Zod for season nine of Smallville. Blue will be a regular next year. As previously reported, Smallville’s other newbie will be Brian Austin Green as baddie Metallo. Terence Stamp played the part in the 1980s Superman film series.

Smallville Movie being planned?

This is being posted as a rumour. Would you like to see Smallville finish with a Movie? Let us know in the comments. If this is hoax, it’s a good one, as it comes with a few bits of convincing detail we are not sharing with you. Someone has written us, claiming to have gotten a glimpse of some signage being prepared for next month’s “Smallville” presentation at Comic-Con. His or her description: On black, with crimson/red text in the same font lettering that Smallville uses, and a transparent grey Superman “S” watermark behind the text:

METROPOLIS CHRISTMAS 2010

Then at the bottom is a banner advertising the Smallville presentation, with the time/place (can’t remember). Other info this untested source sent us suggests “Metropolis” is a movie-length project, and not a new series. Word is “Smallville” will conclude its 9-year run May 2010, so it makes sense that the CW would tack on a couple more production hours up there in Canada to make a Superman TV-movie that would run seven or so months after the series’ conclusion. But what if Tom Welling isn’t putting on the red cape for the small screen? It doesn’t seem like 18 months is enough time to slap together a big-screen “Smallville” sequel, but I also seem to remember Warner Bros. kicking the first three episodes of “Clone Wars” to cinemas without a lot of notice. This comes from an untested source, self-described as “Yoda’s Bitch,” so kindly take it all as rumor.

Latest from Ausiello – Are they casting Zod?!

It sure sounds like it based on this season 9 casting notice that just fell into my lap: MASON: Late 20’s early 30’s. He’s a handsome charismatic charmer who savors life. He appreciates good food, loves fast cars and sees beauty in every woman. There isn’t a detail in life that eludes his senses. He is a master of seduction… knowing what everyone wants and needs before they do. But don’t let his magnetism fool you. There’s more than meets the eye. His intelligence can’t be matched. He outmaneuvers everyone in his path. Though he longs to find a home, that vulnerability can be twisted — making him a force to be reckoned with.”Source: EW

Smallville Casting Exclusive: Brian Austin Green Is Metallo!

Source: TV Guide

It’s official — the new season of Smallville can’t get here soon enough. Brian Austin Green has been cast on Smallville as the DC Comics villain Metallo, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively. That’s right — the Terminator alum is now playing a cyborg himself. That is a pretty freakin’ super bit of casting, right? Green will appear as the kryptonite-powered villain (alter ego “Daily Planet” journo John Corben) in at least the first two episodes of Season 9, which takes flight Friday, Sept. 25 Interestingly, Smallville fans were waiting for news on big, bad Zod, given the events of the Season 8 finale, but that role still has yet to be cast. (I suppose you could say the show “zigged” instead of Zod.) Green’s Smallville gig comes on the heels of the Beverly Hills 90210 alum passing on the role of One Tree Hill sports agent Clayton. (And isn’t this role so, so much cooler?!) Prior to that, Green had been attached to the CW pilot Body Politic, but that series didn’t get picked up for fall. This past TV season, Green costarred on Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, which was canceled after two seasons.

Smallville Season 8 Finale Recap ‘Doomsday’ Jimmy Dies!

FinaleWatch: Death spares not ‘Smallville’

Source: Zap2it.com Recaps

On this Very Special Episode of ‘Smallville,” Clark finally learns the true meaning of carpe diem… though it comes far too late to save one that has been close to him for a long time.

“Cosmic Boy” Rokk makes a cameo appearance on the roof of the Daily Planet to present Clark with another Legion ring… seeing as how he destroyed the last one. Rokk also drops word that, because of Clark’s mad respect for Chloe, he is destined to die tomorrow. Rokk can be a real downer sometimes. Speaking of bad tidings, Tess has been robbed of her precious orb, while over in Edge City, Chloe and Davis do a little stargazing.

The next day, Clark is typing his “goodbye cruel world” letter to the masses when Lois shows up on one hell of a caffeine buzz. She’s mad that he’s not doing more to find Chloe. To shut her up, he whooshes to a nearby phone booth only to call her as the Red/Blue Blur… here to save the day. With his help comes a price: publish the letter. She hesitates on that demand while making one of her own. If he agrees to meet her, she’ll go through with it. He sets a midnight meeting for a downtown phone booth. Heh.

After a prolonged absence, Bart and Dinah (Impulse and Black Canary) return to help Clark plan his attack: lure Doomsday to the Luthor Geothermal Facility, where he (it?) will be blown to bits. Oliver appears in the barn to (once again) voice his disapproval at the idea. Clark notes that Oliver isn’t the man he once was, what with the killing of Lex and whatnot. It seems Bart and Dinah can be easily swayed, because later that night, they team up with Oliver to stop Clark in his tracks with an Evil Kryptonite Dart!

Somehow, Jimmy got his hands on a decryption key for Tess’ computer… where he literally stumbles upon Lois. Together, they find a program tracking Chloe and Davis, which allows for Jimmy to make a hasty exit. Lois stays behind to watch video of Tess acquiring the orb and the impending doom should she decide to use it. Speak of the devil herself, Tess tries to keep Lois from finding out more about the orb, which leads to a catfight in the newsroom.

This time, it’s Jimmy who plays hero to Clark, removing the dart. As his reward, his use of context clues finally yields a positive outcome: Clark confirms to him that he is indeed the Red/Blue Blur. Before there’s too much explanation, he whooshes away to the geothermal facility… where he’s too late to the Doomsday party. Turns out, Chloe is no longer calming Davis enough to keep from unleashing the beast, so it’s determined that he must die. Oliver lines up his shot, but Chloe forces the Black Kryptonite onto Davis, causing the man and beast to become separate entities.

Clark joins the Doomsday Downtown Destruction already in progress. He saves a little girl from certain death, but after the beast knocks Clark into next Thursday, that apparently is the last straw. Our hero musters all his strength to blast him and Doomsday out of Metropolis and straight into the geothermal facility… which proceeds to explode in a fiery fury.

Later, Jimmy takes Chloe and Davis to what was supposed to be his final wedding present to his bride: a new home overlooking the city complete with a large stained-glass window. His reasoning was that no matter where she is in Metropolis, she could always look up and see home. Jimmy also reveals his knowledge of Clark’s secret AND apologizes to Chloe for not being more understanding of her situation. It’s a good thing they kiss, because Davis takes the opportunity to impale Jimmy with a large pipe. He seems upset that Chloe wasn’t really on his side, but working for/with Clark all along. She begs for her life, which distracts him long enough for himself to receive a metal pipe through the chest, courtesy of Jimmy. While Davis immediately dies, Jimmy dies the hero’s death in Chloe’s arms.

Jimmy’s funeral is sparsely attended: Chloe is there along with Bart and Dinah. Oliver stands on the other side, shedding his single tear. Clark is there, too… lurking in the background. Later at the stained-glass house, our hero pleads to Chloe to get rid of the place. She envisions it as a literal WatchTower; a place where the League can assemble to do the most good. Sensing he may no longer be useful to anyone, Clark pouts that perhaps he cares too much about humanity. Clark Kent is now apparently dead, having walked out on Chloe (who is now literally all alone.)

We end the eighth season with Tess heading toward the light that has illuminated the Castle Luthor background. I can only imagine what she’s thinking when out from the orb appears a figure in human form standing in the middle of a burning symbol of Zod.

‘Smallville’: Find out why they killed Jimmy

Source: The Ausiello Files

Aaronashmore_lWARNING: Stop reading if you have not watched the season finale of Smallville. I mean it. Everyone else, onward and downward…

Talk about dodging a tall loophole with a single bound. In tonight’s season finale, Smallville managed to kill off an iconic Superman character without incurring the wrath of the evil mythos police. I’m referring, of course, to the death of Jimmy Olsen at the hands of a de-Doomsdayed Davis. The show later revealed (or strongly implied?) that the shutterbug’s younger brother is, in fact, the real Jimmy. Problem solved! Of course, that’s little consolation to Aaron Ashmore, whose three-year stint as faux Jimmy ended with a steel pipe through the chest. In this exclusive interview, Ashmore reveals why he was caught off guard by his dismissal, how he’d feel about a Chloe-Clark romance, and who he thinks really killed Jimmy Olsen.

When did you find out that Jimmy wasn’t long for this world?
AARON ASHMORE:
About six months ago, right around the time we finished shooting “Bride.” I knew that Jimmy was going to get hurt in that episode and go on a little hiatus, so I talked to the producers and asked, “Guys, where is this storyline going?” And they said, “Well, we have an idea to send Jimmy on a bit of a downward spiral and, in the end, sacrifice himself for Chloe.” That’s what I originally heard. I didn’t know that that was necessarily going to happen this season. It happened a little sooner than I had anticipated.

Were you disappointed?
ASHMORE:
Of course. I really enjoyed working on the show; to be sent off kind of sucks. But, at the same time, it works great for the story. And all things run their course. I guess Jimmy on Smallville had run his course.

Any chance he’s not really dead?
ASHMORE:
I don’t think so. Not that I’ve heard.

When word leaked that two major characters were dying, no one suspected Jimmy because of the whole mythos thing. Did you think you were safe because of that?
ASHMORE:
Absolutely. That was my first reaction. That being said, Smallville has taken some little turns here and there from the comic books.

So, Jimmy’s little brother is the real Jimmy, right?
ASHMORE:
That’s how I read it. There’s always been a bit of a discrepancy in how old Jimmy is compared to Clark and Lois, so this is a way of clarifying things. Jimmy [is supposed to be] 10 years younger than them, so Jimmy’s little brother showing up totally makes it stick to the mythos.

What reason did producers give you for killing him off?
ASHMORE:
I know when [the idea of] Jimmy coming to Smallville first came up, DC Comics had a bit of a problem because of the age difference thing. But the producers really wanted to bring the character in because they thought they could do some interesting stuff with him. I believe [producers] had reassured DC that by the end of the series — or at some point — they would rectify that [by making it clear that he’s] not the real Jimmy Olsen.

How do you think fans will react to Jimmy’s death?
ASHMORE:
It’s a mixed bag. It depends if you like Jimmy or not. There are a lot of people that probably think he’s a really annoying, bumbling kind of guy, which, you know, there’s no doubt about that. He’s not the hero; he’s the everyman. And I always questioned why people got so annoyed by that. [On the other hand], I think people who are big Jimmy fans are going to be bummed. But I think it’s a nice way for him to go. I think he redeems himself and [emerges as] a bit of a hero after being so self-conscious and jealous [this season]. He had a lot of good qualities as well, but he took a dark turn at the end. I’ll be interested to see how people take it.

Are you a “Chlark” fan?
ASHMORE:
Abso… well…. romantically, I don’t know if it would work. That’s yet to be seen. But there’s a very strong bond between those two characters. And you can see it in the show. Their scenes together are always really great, and they’re always played really well by Allison [Mack] and Tom [Welling]. The connection is really, really nice.

What’s next for you?
ASHMORE:
I’m headed to L.A. tomorrow to hit the job hunt. I ‘m in Toronto right now, where I just shot an episode of The Bridge. It’s a Canadian-produced television show that CBS picked up. It’s a procedural cop drama and I get to play a beat copy, which was really sweet. It’s tough after being out of the audition game for three years. I’m going to try and see what the options are.

Smallville Episode Recap 8.19 “Stiletto”

smallstilleto.jpgPreviously on Smallville: Chloe agreed to help Davis work on his homicidal tendencies because she’s just that nice (and stupid).  Clark tried denying that he’s a super-powered alien to Tess Mercer, but she’s way too smart for that.

Lois Lane is turned away from a fancy journalism gala, making her seem overly desperate.  She complains to Chloe about how she can’t get an interview with the Red Blue Blur, or even the lesser superhero the Green Arrow.  How can Tess Mercer figure out all these secret identitites, but Lois, who has been close to both Clark and Oliver, can’t?

A mugger attacks Chloe and knocks her out, but Lois arrives to kick some bad guy butt.  Even in five-inch heels, she still knocks down two grown men without breaking a sweat.  One gets away in Chloe’s car, but she steps on the other’s neck with her heel and gets an idea, so she lets him know that there’s a new superheroine in town – Stiletto.

Chloe wakes up in the hospital, eager to get out and back to Davis in the basement.  Unfortunately, her laptop, complete with all her Justice League notes, was in the car.  Lois is nowhere to be seen as she’s busy writing up a news story about Metropolis’ newest hero, Stiletto….READ FULL RECAP

Smallville Season Finale Spoilers!

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)

Question: Any Smallville finale spoilers that don’t involve the Grim Reaper?

The fight scene between Doomsday and Clark is going to be big. One might even call it ginormous.

Smallville: Will Chloe Survive?

Source: Kristin on E!Online

Smallville

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.

Allison Mack, SmallvilleMany 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.

Smallville, Tom WellingJust 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.

Smallville Preview: Will Lois and the Blur Make for a Hot Story?

Source: TV Guide Online

Erica Durance

This week on the CW’s Smallville (Thursdays, 8 pm/ET), the increasingly intrepid reporter Lois Lane decides that to “catch” a superhero, one must become one. Literally. In Part 1 of our Q&A with Erica Durance, the actress discusses Lois’ wild plan, shares the secrets behind her skintight outfit, and previews Smallville‘s next step toward the Superman mythology’s famous love “triangle.”

TVGuide.com: Let’s talk about this week’s episode, “Stiletto”: What is Lois up to?
Erica Durance:
[Laughs] When I got this script I had such a good laugh, and I was so excited. Just the whole aspect that Lois gets this bright idea of, “What other way to get a story than be the story?” Once again, she gets into a fight and has to teach a guy a lesson, because he tries to mess with Chloe, and that gives her the idea to become a superhero. She makes her own costume — because apparently she can whip out a leather outfit on a whim — and becomes “Stiletto.”

TVGuide.com: Does this ultimately fall under the heading of “ill-advised ideas”?
Durance:
She finds out, as time goes by, that perhaps it wasn’t her best idea. There are a couple of close calls with some of her friends, and she realizes that this is maybe not the best way to go about getting a story. But what I love about Lois is that she’s willing to go and give 200 percent to something like that, and if she’s wrong, she’s willing to say, “Hey, I’m human, and it was a bad idea.” But through all of this, she does get one thing — her first one-on-one phone conversation with the Red-Blue Blur.

TVGuide.com: A phone conversation, eh? Because in the spring preview I got from the producers, they said that the most romantic moment comes in this episode: “Phone booth. Lois. Red-Blue Blur.”
Durance:
What I find is really beautiful about it is that it’s starting that mythology that everyone loves — Lois Lane’s obsession and absolute love for the Red-Blue Blur and her kind of dismissal of Clark as this somewhat dweeby guy who works at the newspaper. But what’s really lovely is you get to see Clark see Lois in a totally different light — she’s smitten and sweet, and her barriers are down as she’s talking to the Red-Blue Blur — and that is really romantic. I loved shooting it.

TVGuide.com: So this episode will bring Lois and the Red-Blue Blur closer, but not necessarily Lois and Clark?
Durance:
It brings Lois and the Blur closer, and then from Clark’s point of view, he becomes closer to Lois, because he gets to see this side of her that is so honest and very, very generous. From there, [the writers] start building things for the remainder of this season.

TVGuide.com: What’s the hardest thing you had to do there in the stilettos?
Durance:
When I had to swing through the roof, on the wire [harness], and kick the guy in the face, that was really hard. Here’s a tidbit: I had two costumes — one I could wear while doing stunts and that I could somewhat move around in, and a “hero” version that I literally could not sit down in. They had to make me a “leaning post,” where in between takes I could lean back. I was like Hannibal Lecter.

TVGuide.com: Why couldn’t you sit down in the “hero” costume?
Durance:
Because it was all leather, from head to toe, and the boots were past my thigh. Plus I’m in 6-inch stilettos. When I think of all the strange costumes I have worn on the show, this one takes the cake!

Next week, in Part 2 of our Q&A: Erica Durance reflects on one of this season’s most challenging episodes, then looks ahead to a big season-finale showdown.

          Smallville Preview: Serinda Swan Has “Hex” Appeal as Zatanna

          by Matt Mitovich, TV Guide

          Serinda Swan has “Hex” appeal as Zatanna.

          This Thursday, Zatanna works her magic on the CW’s Smallville, and at least one person’s life might never be the same as a result. What brings the DC Comics character to town? Aside from granting Chloe a birthday wish, what other tricks does Ms. Z. have up her sleeve? And which of Smallville’s eligible gents is she hot to cast a sexy spell on? Guest star Serinda Swan shared with us a few of her secrets.

          TVGuide.com: So, “Serinda Swan” — a name as pretty as the actress who wears it.
          Serinda Swan:
          Aw, thank you very much! I had a thespian and a hippie for parents, so they came up with unique names for my sister [Ariel] and I. A “serinda” is an ancient Tibetan musical instrument, like a flute.

          TVGuide.com: When you landed this Smallville role, did you immediately start Googling to see what Zatanna looks like and what she’s all about?
          Swan:
          Only after I found out that I was Zatanna; I originally auditioned for “Cassie,” which was the character’s cover name. They wanted to keep this very hush-hush. It wasn’t until my agent got a call from someone at TVGuide.com offering their congratulations….

          TVGuide.com: That was me, kiddo. That was me.
          Swan:
          I was thinking it was you! So yeah, then I Wikipedia’d it and Googled it and read her backstory. That’s when the excitement started.

          TVGuide.com: Smallville fans can be very discerning, yet when you were cast, I saw barely any squawking. It was by and large, “She’s perfect.”
          Swan:
          And I was so happy for that. A lot of the stuff I’ve done hasn’t come out yet, so there was some, “She looks the part, but can she act?” That put a lot of pressure on me to make sure I nailed the character. So when I did go in [for the audition], I actually spoke [Zatanna’s spells] backwards. I reversed the sound, put it on my iPod and listened to it right before I had to say my lines, so that when the comic book enthusiasts reverse it on their computers — which I know they’ll do — it’s actually intelligible.

          TVGuide.com: Smallville was very faithful to Zatanna’s costume — and fishnets are even in style now!
          Swan:
          Yeah! I’m really happy with how accurate wardrobe was, from the top hat to the button-up tuxedo outfit to the fishnets, the boots….

          TVGuide.com: See, her tuxedo always throws me. My sons have every super hero action figure, but they never played with Zatanna — and I suspect it’s because she’s so “formal.”
          Swan:
          She is quite formal. They spice her up a bit in some of the other scenes where she gets to wear more “regular” clothing, but always with a magical twist to it.

          TVGuide.com: Before Zatanna pulls off the Chloe-Lois body swap, do we get any hint that she has mad magic skills?
          Swan:
          Well, the very first thing she does is perform one of her more magical spells as opposed to an illusion, so right off the bat you get that she is more of a trickster and a trouble-maker than a regular party magician.

          TVGuide.com: Does Chloe’s experience get filed under: “Be careful what you wish for”?
          Swan:
          Absolutely. [Laughs] But at the same time Zatanna thinks she’s being helpful. She has a little twinkle in her eye because she knows what’s going to happen. Most people are not careful what they wish for.

          TVGuide.com: Erica Durance plays Chloe for much of the episode?
          Swan:
          Yes, and it’s such a blast. It was so much fun watching that.

          TVGuide.com: In addition to Chloe’s wish, I understand Clark has one, too….
          Swan:
          Yes, he does — and it gets him into a bit of trouble, because it’s not a regular wish. It’s something that kind of turns him upside-down. But I can’t give away what it is!

          TVGuide.com: Does Zatanna flirt with Clark at all?
          Swan:
          She flirts more with Oliver. She’s a pretty flirtatious girl, so she gets in his face and tries to use her “other” skills on him. But she does try to work her magic on Clark as well.

          TVGuide.com: There’s this one photo where Zatanna is walking away from a tied-up Oliver. What did he ever do to her?
          Swan:
          Well, I’m trying to find my father’s spell book, and Oliver has something to do with where it’s hidden…

          TVGuide.com: Of course he does.
          Swan:
          Of course he does. So when I discover that, that’s what I do to him. Don’t mess with me!

          TVGuide.com: Why does Zatanna need her father’s book? To try to raise Zatara from the dead?
          Swan:
          Yes, that’s her whole goal. He died protecting her, as it says in the comics, and she feels that she can’t carry out the life that he could have. She feels she should trade her life in for his, so he can come back and do what he was meant to do.

          TVGuide.com: Zatanna is also known to mix it up with Batman. Is there any reference to Bruce Wayne here, à la he recommended her as party entertainment?
          Swan:
          No, this is more about her beginnings. She doesn’t even know all of her powers yet, until she gets her father’s book. There’s a line where she says she was only able to look at the book once, and that’s where she got her one spell, to grant wishes.

          TVGuide.com: Is the door left open for Zatanna to return?
          Swan:
          The door is left wide open, so fingers crossed! I’d love to come back. I know that she has quite a relationship with Clark, later on in her story, so I’d love to see that develop into an episode.

          Smallville Episode 8.16 Recap: “Turbulence”

          Cassidy Freeman, SmallvillePreviously on Smallville: Everything that happened was erased by the Legion’s time travel ring, but on the bright side, Davis Bloom killed Linda Lake as Doomsday slowly took him over.

          Davis Bloom is in church confessing his sins to a priest. This could take a while. Davis reflects on how he spends his nights riding around in his ambulance, chasing down bad guys and killing them, which keeps Doomsday dormant. I guess that’s good, right?
          Clark is feeling pretty good about himself because he’s upping his appearances as the Red Blue Blur to help inspire the masses. Chloe has her doubts, but Clark speeds off and shows her his quick changing ability. She’s not too impressed by his America’s Next Top Model moment.

          Hey, it’s some complete stranger lying in a hospital bed. Oh wait, that’s Jimmy. He’s been MIA since Doomsday’s wedding attack, so forgive me for not recognizing him. He’s in severe pain, but he tries to hide it claiming he just wants to go home. Jimmy is still worried that Doomsday might come back

          It’s affecting him a lot, as he wakes up with night sweats after having terrible flashbacks to his wedding day. He gets up and begs the nurses for more morphine, but no one is around. I guess this job market really is bad, since even a major metropolitan hospital can’t afford to employ anyone at night. A scared man runs by begging for help, and soon after that a man shows up to kill the first guy. Jimmy gets a glimpse of the killer’s face, and it’s Davis.

          The next morning Jimmy calls Chloe over and tells her that Davis was the killer. However, Davis is also there, explaining that Jimmy must have been delusional from a morphine overdose. Jimmy doesn’t buy it for one second, but Chloe sides with the man who tried to kiss her before her wedding day. It’s a pretty bad start to a marriage if she’s already siding with the man who wants to have an affair with her over her own husband.

          Chloe gets upset and cries on Davis’ shoulder. The problem is this happens not five feet from Jimmy’s hospital room, and he’s watching his new wife tightly embracing another, much hotter dude. His brilliant plan for revenge is to dress up like a paramedic and dig around Davis’ ambulance….READ FULL RECAP AT BUDDY TV

          New Smallville Spoilers: ‘Turbulence’

          3/19 New ‘Turbulence’

          SmallvilleTess invites Clark to a press conference in New York, but when an explosion rocks the private jet they are on, Clark must figure out how to save them without Tess learning his secret. Unbeknownst to Clark, Tess orchestrated the explosion to get Clark to reveal his powers. Meanwhile, Davis discovers a surprising way to control the monster within.

          Any good Chloe spoilers in the Smallville pipeline?
          Thanks to Zantanna (Serinda Swan), Chloe and Lois are going to be switching bodies in “Hex,” but there could be more crazy stuff for Allison Mack to come. Cassidy Freeman tells me, “I think it’s really interesting what they’re doing with Chloe. You have this show that has been on for so long, and you have this character that’s not really in the mythos and has had to create her own self. You can do anything with her and that’s kind of what they’re doing.”

          How about a good Smallville spoiler?
          How’s this? Meteor freaks start dying in Metropolis, but don’t be so quick to think Doomsday is the culprit.

          Smallville: Guess Who Finds Luthor’s Journal?

          Source: E!Online

          Smallville, Tom Welling, Cassidy Freeman The CW

          What would life be like for Clark Kent (Tom Welling) on Smallville if everyone knew that he is actually a Superman? What if there were a journal that held every detail about Kal-El, Krypton and Clark Kent? Well, in an upcoming episode Tess Mercer (Cassidy Freeman) discovers there is such a journal, and it’s not at all clear that she can be trusted with that info… We just chatted up Cassidy about Tess’ arc this season, and not only does she hold the key to Clark’s secret but she’s in grave danger herself and may not even be back next season…

          Tess and Clark are going for a little flight, and the episode is called “Turbulence”—plane crash anyone?
          Ding, ding, ding! It’s me and Clark. I approach him in a very different way than Lex did; I see Clark as an opportunity for security in a way that I’ve never felt before. I, like everybody else, need a hero, and I’m looking to Clark for that.

          Does Tess know about Clark’s powers?
          She knows what she’s read, she’s knows what she’s seen, she knows what she’s heard, but she wants him to trust her.

          Wait, read?
          Tess uncovers Lionel Luthor’s diary, and she learns everything.

          Smallville, Tom Welling Frank Ockenfels/The CW

          Clark shouldn’t trust her then, right?
          That’s a good question. We’ve seen that Tess can kill people, but she’s not predictable. You can’t really count on her to be one way or the other, but she does things she feels she needs to, even if that means doing a really, really evil thing.

          Fans want to see more of Tess this season—what can they look forward to?
          There’s another episode coming up which is called “Eternal,” directed by James Marshall. It’s super Tess-heavy, probably the most I’ve ever been in an episode. I say more words than I’ve said the entire season, and Tess and Davis finally meet.

          Davis Bloome or Doomsday?
          Both.

          Is she in danger?
          Yeah, she gets bitch-slapped. She definitely presses buttons. She’s out there; she’s like f–k all, I want to know the truth.

          It’s nice to see a little love connection with Oliver and Tess as well.
          We do have an interesting relationship. We haven’t touched on the romance of that; I think their romantic relationship lives in a certain time, and it may live again, but right now she’s trying to live her life without a man or a father figure or anyone telling her what she should or shouldn’t do.

          Michael Rosenbaum The WB/Brian Cyr

          Is Lex really dead? Could he show up in the finale?
          No one is ever really dead on Smallville, just like no one is ever really human.

          They’ve taken to humanizing you, though.
          I am one of the only humans on the show, really, or the only person who hasn’t been affected by Kryptonite or Brainiac. I love that about Tess; when she’s doing bad things, you’re rooting for her, and then when something horrible happens to her, you kind of feel bad for her in a way.

          The finale is still untitled, but do the writers have a plan now that they’ve been picked up for a ninth season?
          They were doing “choose your own adventure.” They were doing either a series finale or season finale. So now that we know that we’re going another season, they’ve had to pull things over to a season finale.

          The show is picked up for the ninth season, but are you?
          I officially have not had the invite back, but I hope that I’m back. I think that it would be awesome to have Tess back. That scene when she’s talking in the mirror to Lex and she shuts him off, that was really her turning point for me, because before she was this character that was always looking for Lex. She was really in the show to take on that role because Michael Rosenbaum left, and that’s the moment she starts to build her own character.

          Promise you will not die this season.
          I hope not. If they don’t bring me in [for the next season], I will promise you that I will storm into the production office, and there will be a beatdown until they put me in the show.

          Should Tess Mercer come back for the ninth season? What do you make of the elusive Lionel Luthor diary? Hit the comments with your thoughts.

          3/12 New ‘Infamous’

          Smallville

          Linda Lake (guest star Tori Spelling) returns to Metropolis and threatens to expose Clark’s secret unless he promises to give her exclusive information on the red-blue blur, so she can become a star reporter again. Refusing to be blackmailed, Clark tells Lois his secret and asks her to write his story for The Daily Planet.

          Multiple sources confirm that two pivotal characters will bite the dust in this May’s season finale. And in a bit of a departure for Smallville, both deaths will stick. “These characters will die and they will stay dead,” maintains my insider. “This is the real deal.” […] Eh, one more little tease won’t hurt anyone: One character qualifies as a Smallville vet… the other one, not so much. […] The Legion will return in the May finale — in some form. Also, I’m told this season’s final two episodes will focus on a manhunt for Chloe and Doomsday. Source: The Ausiello Files

Davis compromises and tells Chloe he’ll let them go “after we leave Smallville.” Jimmy confronts Davis and refers to him as “Cloverfield.” Davis backhands him and sends him flying into a wall. After that, Davis threatens Oliver. Chloe insists to the detective that she and Davis are “nothing more than friends.” Later in the episode, it seems that Davis has Oliver held in the Talon basement.

          CW renews ‘Smallville,’ ‘Gossip Girl,’ ‘One Tree Hill,’ ‘Supernatural,’ and ‘90210’

          Breaking: CW renews ‘Smallville,’ ‘Gossip Girl,’ ‘One Tree Hill,’ ‘Supernatural,’ and ‘90210’

          Michael Ausiello @ EW

          Cwrenewals_l Good news, fans of all things CW. The network just announced that it has renewed Smallville, Supernatural, Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill, and 90210 for next season. America’s Next Top Model has also been greenlit for two additional cycles.

          “As we continue to build The CW Network as a destination for young women, these six shows have clearly contributed to strengthening our schedule and our brand identity,” CW boss Dawn Ostroff said in a statement. “By securing these signature hits for next season, we’re furthering our commitment to deliver high-quality, original programming to our viewers, advertisers and affiliates.”

          While the Gossip Girl and America’s Next Top Model pickups were a foregone conclusion, the fates of Smallville, Supernatural, One Tree Hill, and 90210 were less certain. In the case of Smallville and One Tree Hill, a lot was riding on which of those show’s core cast-members would be returning. Smallville‘s renewal clearly signals that Tom Welling has successfully concluded his contract negotiations with producer Warner Bros, but the same can’t be said for OTH leading man Chad Michael Murray. The actor-writer’s participation next season is TBD, although insiders say he’s expected to return in some capacity.

          Conspicuously missing from The CW’s slew of renewals: The freshman gem that is Privileged. However, that doesn’t mean the show has been canceled, a CW source insists. “No final decision has been made yet,” the insider says. Translation: Watch tonight’s season finale, dammit!

          Reaction to all the renewals? Do you deem any of them unworthy? And does Privileged deserve a shot at another year? And what about fellow bubble shows Reaper, The Game, and Everybody Hates Chris? Sound off below!

Executive producer Brian Peterson said, “Lois returns in a big way, as she finds her feelings for Clark increasingly rivaled by her quest to get closer to the enigmatic Red-Blue Blur.” Linda Lake first appeared in a 2007 episode where she is hired by Lex to gather informations that would bring down Clark. She has the ability to turn to water which she uses to find saucy stories for The Daily Planet.

          Surviving Smallville: Lex dead? Lana gone?

          Clark and LanaSmallville characters faced pivotal crossroads last night in an episode that closed with one of the most heart-wrenching scenes of the entire series.  Deformed monster Lex Luthor was pulling the strings to gain revenge on key players who’ve destroyed his life: Oliver, Tess, Lana and Clark.  After surviving Lex’s first toy/bomb, Oliver (aka, Green Arrow) was determined to murder the madman once and for all—despite Chloe’s horrified objections.  But first, Lex schemed to separate Clark and Lana forever by forcing her to absorb enough kryptonite to kill the young Man of Steel.  Lana intervened before a raging Clark could rip into Lex, who was evidently perched in a Metropolis trailer.  But Oliver covertly blew it up with Lex’s own bomb, and authorities confirmed the remains were Luthor’s.  Is Smallville re-writing the future, or did the villain with nine lives escape again?  Later, Lana met Clark in the barn loft, and completely broke down as he staggered to kiss her one last time.  It was hard to watch, and surely harder to film.  Kristin Kreuk and Tom Welling were never better.  The super duo professed their undying love, before Lana fled…knowing she couldn’t endure the now-forbidden relationship.  Was last night the final time we’ll see Lex and Lana?  In the comic book world of Smallville, don’t count on it.

          The very creepy Winslow Schott has a conversation with a ventriloquist’s dummy about the joy of toys. Meanwhile, the LuthorCorp Board of Directors has a meeting to hold a vote of no confidence for Tess Mercer, but Oliver Queen (Justin Hartley) busts in to say he bought a controlling interest in LuthorCorp.

          The Board isn’t too pleased, but Oliver is distracted by clicking balls which he figures out are a bomb, so he ducks while the Board gets blown up. In a brilliant bit of editing, the falling, flaming debris smashes into the comet of the opening credits.

Rather than go another round with Clark (Tom Welling) in the sack, Lana (Kristin Kreuk) wants to go out patrolling with him. I think I know quite a few ladies who would disagree with her decision.
