The AW Poll – “Smallville” 8.15


“Smallville” – Season 8, Episode 15 – “Infamous”

Linda Lake (guest star Tori Spelling) returns to Metropolis and threatens to expose Clark’s secret unless he promises to give her exclusive information on the red-blue blur so she can become a star reporter again. Refusing to be blackmailed, Clark tells Lois his secret and asks her to write his story for The Daily Planet.

Smallville Facts

  • The sound effect used for the sound of Kryptonite radiating is the same as the one used in “Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman” (1993).
  • Lex Luthor’s mansion is the same mansion used in X2 (2003)
  • Jensen Ackles, who plays Jason Teague in Season 4, was the second choice to play Clark Kent. If Tom Welling had not accepted the part, the role would have gone to him
  • Kristen Bell (I) auditioned for the role of Chloe Sullivan.
  • Although he plays the lead character, Tom Welling has admitted in interviews that he is not a fan of the Superman comic books.
  • ‘Milo Ventimiglia (I)’ originally auditioned for the role of Clark Kent. Although the role went to Tom Welling, the producers at The WB liked him so much they gave him the role of Jess on “Gilmore Girls” (2000). Ventimiglia now plays a different comic book-style superhero on “Heroes” (2006/II).

“Smallville” returns tonight at 8/7c on The CW.

Smallville 8.15 – “Infamous” Trailer

So the writing’s been a little lackluster lately for this season of “Smallville”, especially for those who remember the recent horrendous “Power” episode…yes, where Lana Lang receives superpowers (ugh, geez…).  Then again, “Smallville” has always had quite the fickle record for quality episodes, and as this trailer shows, it looks like it’s picking itself right back up once again.

The show continues March 12th with “Infamous” where, as seen in the trailer, Clark reveals his powers to the world, even to Lois.  While my curiosity’s certainly piqued by the direction this show seems to be taking, I’m also baffled as to how the writers will actually pull this off.  After all, Clark currently doesn’t wear glasses.  Neither does Superman (aka “the red-blue blur”).  Hmm, that’s a problem…

Well, we can only speculate on the resolution to this dilemma for now, and seeing as there’s an episode of “Hex” coming up with a guest appearance by Zatanna, a magician character in the DC mythos, I have the slightest feeling she may play some role in this.  Of course take that with a grain of salt – I’m only theorizing here 🙂  But however the writers do choose to disentangle this plotline, they had better seriously not screw this up.  “Smallville” is, indeed, nearing “Superman” territory at this stage of the show and here’s hoping that the writers are well aware of the thin ground they’re now treading on.
