Seeing Doomsday on this show is a bad sign in the first place.
So was having Lois on the show. I usually don't nitpick about things that are supposed to be cannon but, having Clark meet her, while still in Smallville, before he becomes Superman was something that always bothered me.

Well, I didn't mind it when it was a 4 episode guest shot. But when she became a regular and all she did was to be there for comic relief and add nothing to the show, that's when I started to get irritated with it.

And it is spelled "canon".

Clark will have been missing for several months and may appear with a beard.
Welling is the same pretty boy model who won't wear glasses on-screen for more than two seconds. Don't count on him wearing even a fake beard.

He looks like a mountain man in a baseball tee-shirt.





I like the idea of Chloe working for Ollie and being part of the JL. At this point, best use of her character and her computer abilities.

I also read that the Doomsday "regular guy" character is not going to be a bartender anymore but a paramedic.

I read that too, and I find myself wondering just how a regular looking guy is going to be passed off as 'Doomsday'?




I would've been happier if TPTB could've convinced Dean Cain to reprise his role as Vandal Savage for say, 13 or so eps, to be the show's 'villian'.

Hell, I'll be happy if they can just get him once or twice for a reprise.

How did Season 7 end anyway? I can't even remember if I caught it or not.

Lex discovered the Fortress and using the device left behind by Jor-El, he rendered Clark powerless and in the process, caused the destruction of the FoS. The final scene was of the two of them being buried under the rubble.

In other news, Chloe was arrested by Homeland Security for being Super-Hacker.

That's right. IIRC, the fortress collapsed, right?

Yup. Right on top of their heads.

This apparently will lead to Lex being 'missing' and I really don't know where this leaves Clarke. I'm guessing that the Fortress will somehow be rebuilt as the season progresses.

Re: Official Smallville Season Eight Spoiler Thread

This is more speculation than spoilers, but with MR, KK and LV officially out of the cast, I've been wondering who's going to top billing behind Welling.

Now I know you all are going to say that I'm biased, but after seven seasons and being the only other person than Welling to be with the show since the beginning, Allison Mack should get second banana, followed by Justin Hartley, Durance, Sam Witwer (Doomsday), Cassidy Freeman (Tess) and finally Ashmore.

But knowing CW, they'll want to push the new faces in addition to promoting the fact that this is going to be The Really New Adventures of Lois & Clark, so the cast list will probably go like this:

Tom Welling
Erica Durance
Justin Hartley
Sam Witwer
Cassiday Freeman
Allison Mack
Aaron Ashmore

Just a guess. I'd love to be wrong when September rolls around.

Re: Official Smallville Season Eight Spoiler Thread

Why Aaron Ashmore in last billing? That spot is usually about as important as second billing, with actors/characters of seniority getting it ("and John Schneider as Jonathon Kent" seasons 1-5, "and John Glover as Lionel Luthor" seasons 6-7). Of course, it would be great for Allison to be acknowledged as female lead, but last billing wouldn't be a bad spot either.

Its only good to be last in the credits when you have a special title to go with it such as "And" or "With". Otherwise, you are the chump at the end of the credits.

For example: Wil Weaton.

Probably because that's where he's at right now, and for some reason, I figured that's how CW will go with it.

Then again, since Millar and Gough are no longer in charge, my guess could be way off, so we'll see.

But yeah, I'd love to see Allison get acknowledged as the series' female lead. As far as I'm concerned, she is.

I think the Smallville take on Doomsday is going to be like the Hulk. The dude will get angry and then "Hulk out".

I really didn't mind her showing up or becoming a regular. The show has always really been a reimagining so it could do nearly anything. It doesn't have to follow canon. And when we're talking Superman there's like a half dozen or so versions of canon.
