"Finally, IGN.com has confirmed who the "hero" will be - Pete Ross, returning to Smallville for the first time since Season 3's "Forsaken."
- Pete won't really like the changes that have gone on since he left town. He's surprised to learn that Chloe, Lana, and Lionel all know Clark's secret - and he's especially surprised to find Lionel Luthor hanging out at the Kents' home.
- Much like a Season 1 "freak of the week" story, Pete obtains temporary "Elastic Lad"-like stretching powers thanks to something involving meteor rocks. He's using these powers when he saves the lives of Kara and Jimmy.
- Lex uses Pete's past feelings for Chloe to his advantage.
- Pete may have some unresolved bad feelings about keeping Clark's secret and the direction it has taken in his life."
I don't know what to think about this. It will certainly be an interesting reunion for Clark ... after Pete Ross is half the reason Clark feels he can't tell anyone about his abilities.
And the part about Lionel makes me laugh because I remember people commenting on "Rage", saying that Pete would have a heart attack if he saw who was there. :)
I can't see Pete trusting Lex though so I'm wondering how that plot will play out. But the whole unrequited love angle ... I worry that AlMiles will screw it up. Pete has a meteor induced ability? Sure, why not? Because everything else isn't completely screwed up yet.
What do you guys think?
