Tess (Cassidy Freeman) learns that General Slade was found unconscious on a street corner, proof that someone has gained access to the Phantom Zone’s escape portal and sent him back. Clark (Tom Welling) decides to return to the exiled land to make sure other phantoms are not fleeing and is furious when Oliver (Justin Hartley) tricks Clark into taking him along.
With Clark’s powers gone, the two are immediately captured by the Zoners who take them to their new leader, Zod (Callum Blue), who is thirsting for revenge on Clark for banishing him to this Kryptonian jail.

SMALLVILLE airs Friday at 8:00 PM, followed by a new episode of SUPERNATURAL on The CW Network.
Entertainment Weekly reports that The CW announced early renewals of it’s genre series THE VAMPIRE DIARIES and SUPENATURAL for next season.
VAMPIRE DIARIES is no surprize, as it’s the network’s number one show this year. SUPERNATURAL is holding it’s own, now in it’s sixth season—and since SMALLVILLE has it series finale after ten years on May 13th, a show to anchor the difficult Friday night schedule is much needed.
The fact that both shows are produced by or in association with CW half-parent Warner Brothers Television couldn’t hurt, either.
As SMALLVILLE heads towards the end of its tenth and final season, The CW has put together this brief teaser of the 2-hour series finale, covering the show’s recurring themes, with glimpses of moments past and yet to come.
The SMALLVILLE Finale airs May 13th, beginning at 8:00 PM/7:00 Central.
Clark is shocked to find a mirror box in the barn. Clark Luthor surprises him and sends Clark Kent back to the alternate reality where Clark runs into a very angry Jonathan Kent (guest John Schnieder).
Meanwhile, back in our reality, Clark Luthor visits Tess and tells if she doesn’t side with him he’ll kill her. Lois asks Emil to help her bring Clark back.
Jeannot Szwarc directed with story by Genevieve Sparling and teleplay by Kelly Souders & Brian Peterson.
SMALLVILE airs Fridays at 8:00 PM /7 :00 Central on The CW Network.
TV Guide is featuring comments by the cast and producers of The CW’s SMALLVILE, as it heads towards its last episodes and series finale after ten years.
Tom Welling in a break from shooting a scene in the Phantom Zone for the episode airing April 29th had the following to say.
“This show, to me, has always been about Clark Kent — it hasn’t been about Superman. And it was very important at the end that we make sure that we wrap up the Clark Kent story.”
This is not to say long time viewers won’t get a peak at Welling in the iconic role. Executive producer Kelly Souders had advice for fans watching the series finale.
“I will just say to keep watching through the whole two hours. There is a very, very special moment that we love, and everyone who is looking for that moment won’t be disappointed.”
Series co-creator Al Gough (with Miles Millar), while no longer actively connected to the show, has his own suspicions.
“The last scene of the last episode was always going to be Clark putting on the suit and flying off into his destiny. And my guess is that, when we all see the finale, it will be some version of that. The wonderful thing about the show is that the people who work on it are just as passionate about it today as they were 10 years ago. Kelly and Brian (Peterson) found a gear for the show and made it work. I know it wasn’t easy. I’m certainly grateful to them that they were able to do that.” Allison Mack, who plays Chloe Sullivan, the only other cast member to appear in all ten seasons, came back for the finale after completing her contracted five episodes this year.
“It was important for me to pay homage to the character, the people I’ve worked with and the fans. I had a realization, while I was doing the middle five episodes, that this has been such a huge part of my life, and I am so blessed and so lucky to have had this opportunity. I wanted to make sure that I was respectful of that.
… I think that the writers have respected my character for such a long time, and she goes out with the same affection she came in with.”

I’ve got to say it’s a big improvement. Gone are the blue high-helled boots and the shiny, baby blue 80’s pants. A little more practical, and surprisingly less tacky. via Topless Robot
From TV Guide comes this first look at Booster Gold (Eric Martsolf) and the new Blue Beetle (Jaren Brandt Bartlett), in their upcoming appearance on SMALLVILLE.
In Booster, scheduled to air April 22nd, Days of Our Lives star Eric Martsolf describes his role of Booster Gold as , “a glory-seeking showboat from the future.”
“The episode takes place in Booster’s very early stages where he’s at his conceited best, where he believes he can do whatever he wants. He’s gonna stay for the photo op and bask in the glory of his heroic efforts.”
Episode author, DC Comics’ Geoff Johns says:
“The one thing Booster does prove to Clark is that people want to look up to this guy… They want to be inspired, and no one’s doing it for them.”
However. Clark Kent and his time-traveling rival have different values. “This guy (Booster Gold) always shows up at the last second to make a dramatic rescue, which is really suspect,” hints Johns, now creative head of DC Entertainment.
