After several people contacting me about it I've decided to open the Season 8 Spoiler Thread for Smallville. Please feel free to discuss known spoilers, your thoughts on spoilers, and even your theories on what is to come. Let's see if it can be as successful as the one from last year. I'll open with a new spoiler from TVGuide posted today: Chloe may not be returning to her job at the Daily Planet immediately in Season 8 if at all. Clark will have been missing for several months and may appear with a beard. Doomsday will not appear until the second episode rather than in the premire. Tess will have her own assistant.
