Fortune, due to air  February 25, is what producer Brian Peterson calls “…Our fun HANGOVER episode. Clark won’t remember what happened the night before”, courtesy of an enchanted  bottle of champagne sent by magician Zatanna. 
smallville-vegas1Erica Durance (Lois Lane) reveals “We all wake up in different places in bizarre situations involving weird outfits and animals.
I wake up out on the train tracks with Oliver (Queen, Justin Hartley) and realize I can’t find my engagement ring.”
The ring is in a casino run by supervillian Amos Fortune, and at some point Lois winds up in a showgirl costume. (Big surprise.)
She’d like to sport more conservative attire before the series ends. Assuming we actually see Lois and Clark marry, she said:  “It is my wish to wear a wedding dress. I think that would be a fantastic way to end the series.”

It’s also been confirmed that Zod (Callum Blue) will return at some point before the series’ end.

'Smallville' Casts Booster Gold, Blue Beetle

eric-martsolfEntertainment Weekly reports that SMALLVILLE has cast Eric Martsolf (DAYS OF OUR LIVES) as time-traveling superhero wannbee Booster Gold for the episode Booster.

JBartlett
Jaren Brandt Bartlett

Also in the episode will be Jaren Brandt Bartlett (THE TROOP) as the current alien armor-wearing Blue Beetle, Jamie Reyes.

According to TV Guide,  Sebastian Spence (FIRST WAVE) will appear as previous comic book Blue Beetle, Ted Kord. He was the second version of the character (inspired by the golden age  Beetle, Dan Garett), begining in the 196o’s for Charlton Comics, and later acquired by DC and teamed with Booster Gold as humorous team for a Justice League run in the 1980’s.  Sebatian Spence
Producer Brian Peterson describes the SMALLVILLE Kord role as a “captain of industry who has lost a valuable weapon…the scarab. He’ll cross paths with Booster Gold, Jaime Reyes, and, of course, Clark.” So at a guess, not appearing  in costume as a Blue Beetle.
DC Entertainment creative honcho Geoff Johns wrote the episode.
