Smallville is on its tenth and final season with its conclusion fast approaching. And what’s in store for the February 4th episode? The return of Lionel Luthor (John Glover), Martha Kent (Anette O’Toole) and Chloe (Allison Mack).
The premise the CW released? (Spoiler Alert):
Clark (Tom Welling) is surprised to see Martha (Annette O’Toole) on the news speaking at a pro-vigilante rally. However, surprise quickly turns to horror when he and Lois (Erica Durance) watch as Martha gets shot on national television.
Meanwhile, Lionel (John Glover) reveals himself to the world and reclaims LuthorCorp from Tess (Cassidy Freeman) and Oliver (Justin Hartley). Lois and Chloe (Allison Mack) decide to cheer Clark up by showing him videos from thousands of vigilante supporters professing their support for The Blur. Videos were created and submitted by actual “Smallville” fans. Mike Rohl directed the episode written by Don Whitehead & Holly Henderson.
It’s great that a few old cast members are reprising their roles for the final season of Smallville, but we’re all still hoping for a Lex Luthor (Michael Rosenbaum) return. It only makes sense for all the key players to make a last appearance in the show’s final run.
