Here’s a preview clip from tomorrow’s episode of SMALLVILLE, Isis.
Lois (Erica Durance) decides to tell Clark (Tom Welling) she knows he’s The Blur, but she accidentally activates an ancient artifact that transforms her into the Goddess Isis, complete with superpowers of her own.
Oliver (Justin Hartley) and Clark reluctantly decide to ask Tess (Cassidy Freeman) for help with Lois.
Meanwhile, after Cat Grant (guest star Keri Lynn Pratt) witnesses Lois as Isis using her superpowers, she decides Lois is the Blur and sets out to prove it.
James Marshall directed the episode written by Genevieve Sparling.
SMALLVILLE airs Friday at 8:00 PM/7:00 Central, followed by a new episode of SUPERNATURAL on The CW Network.
From TV Guide we have our first look at SMALLVILLE’s Lois Lane (Erica Durance) as an incarnation of the ‘goddess’ Isis.
In the October 22nd episode, Lois dons an ancient amulet that transforms her into the Egyptian goddess Isis.
Not quite like the 1970’s TV Saturday morning version of Isis as the superheroic alter ego of a schoolteacher (Joanna Cameron), this Isis has a darkside.
It’s more like Lois is possessed by the ancient being, who plans to use Clark Kent’s (Tom Welling) body as a vessel to resurrect her dead husband, Osiris.
Meanwhile, her show of superhuman powers makes the vigilante-hating Cat Grant (Keri Lynn Pratt) suspect she is The Blur, the pre-Superman’s nom-de-voyage on the CW series.
Erica Durance’s costume is a lot more revealing than the one intended for the `70’s kid’s TV show by Filmation, created as a girl’s counterpoint to the live-action Captain Marvel on SHAZAM!.
The SMALLVILE version appears to based more on a recent comic book iteration of the character.
Eonline’s Ask Ausiello column reveals that the person who will be playing Isis on SMALLVILLE’s fifth episode this year is none other than Erica Durance, the CW’s series’ Lois Lane.
Executive producer Brian Peterson says “It’s an inhabitation story… Lois is actually going to be possessed by the spirit of Isis.”
To somewhat clarify things, this episode, entitled Isis, is NOT going to be the current DC Comics character Isis— but rather the Egyptian goddess Isis.
However, there is supossededly some nod to the DC character, who was inspired by the character created by Filmation to be a female counterpart to Captain Marvel on the 70’s live action SHAZAM TV series. (Played by Joanna Cameron, pictured.)
Also discussed was Alison Mack’s Chloe Sullivan character, who will appear in the season premiere, and then not return until mid-season “in a very impactful way in Clark’s life”, accoring to Peterson.
“It’s a great wrap-up to her character, and it also dovetails into the Chloe/Oliver relationship.”
Alison Mack, no longer a regular and concentrating on her stage career, will appear in five episodes in this final season, the series’ tenth.
