Any scoop on when Kristin Kreuk will be returning to Smallville? — Ian
Ausiello: Would you believe sweeps? Shocking, I know. According to exec producer Brian Wayne Peterson, who I cornered at The CW's press tour party last week, Kreuk's five-episode stint as Lana will kick off in early November. "She'll come back at a very inopportune time for Clark," he hints. In the meantime, while Ms. Lang's off "giving Clark some space," the man who would be Super will be growing closer to Lois. "They'll be working together this year at Daily Planet," Peterson says, "and some friction is going to come out of that." Not to mention several winks to classic Superman lore — beginning in the season premiere. Teases Peterson: "There might be a phone booth moment between the two of them."
My Thoughts: We really don't need a Cloisana triangle. I know SV loves their triangles but seriously? I can't handle it. I love the idea of Lois and Clark teaming up but I never really wanted romance this early. I hope they don't push it too far. The phone booth moment does excite me though. ;)
I'm just hoping Clark and Lana get some closure once and for all.
Now that Al Gough and Miles Millar are gone from Smallville, will the new show-runners amend their "No flights, no tights" policy? — Jeremy
Ausiello: Um… hell, yeah! "We are respecting everything that Al and Miles have set up," offers Peterson, choosing his words carefully. "All I'll say is we can definitely guarantee that there are no tights."
I have no idea what they're talking about but whatever. And AlMiles didn't even respect mythos. I don't see what respect you need to have for their stupidity.
Any other scoop about Smallville? — Patricia
Ausiello: Obviously, I wasn't going to cut Peterson lose without asking him about Smallville's most celebrated non-couple, Clark and Chloe. "We definitely touch on [her feelings for him]," he says. Adds fellow EP Todd Slavkin: "They've been best friends for a long time, and Clark would never get in the way of her pursuing her happiness. But oftentimes, feelings have a way of creeping in. That's all we'll say." Um, you've said more than enough, my friend. More than enough!
Episode 4 has the re-emergence of the "Fever" letter. However, Swimmer has already said that there will be no Chlark in s8 so I don't get where they're going with this. We've heard that there will be a Jimmy/Chloe/Doomsday triangle ... so are they trying to further cement the fact that this Jimmy and Clark won't ever be friends?
I guess we'll just have to wait until SV airs on September 18th or until more spoilers come out. If you want to share your thoughts, they're fully welcome!
