    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.

    She'll be working for Oliver, I'll bet. I can see her becoming like Oracle.

    A beard is better than long hair, I suppose. :guffaw:

    I would do an episode where he fights the proto-Justice League first and crushes them.

    Let me guess, his name will sound enough like "Otis" to invoke the memory but not quite ? :)

    Never know. I know I'll still be calling Tess TESCHMACHER even though it's Tess Mercer.

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

    I just wanted to get in on the first page cause this is gonna be like 20 pages long...
    So What has been said about the doomsday character? Is he a mild mannered paramedic by day and a "thing" hellbent on the destruction of earth and Supes at night?

    Supposedly the Justice League will come and rescue him. How they do that, I do not know.

    Seeing Doomsday on this show is a bad sign in the first place.

    So are we calling him DINO now ?

    I like it :p

    Any news on what they will do to explain Lex's departure from the show after last season's cliffhanger ?

    And any info on what Doomsday will look like ? Will they make some CG creature for him to transform into or will he be just a human with powers ?

    I was not aware of that.
    Does it stand for Doom in name only or something ?:)

    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.

    Now where are those pictures of Welling with a beard about a year ago at a baseball game:)

    There really going for that "lost for several months, working somewhere else and sporting a beard" cliche lol

    Channeling Jack from "Lost" Clark will now say "I'M NOT GOING BACK!"

    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". :p

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


    :devil:


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

    :confused:


    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.
