The first half of Smallville Season 10 has been an epic cavalcade of return stars, befitting of this memorable final season. The season opened up with the return of John Schneider as Pa Kent. Sure, it was just a vision, but it was enough to ignite Smallville’s final season. Other guest-stars have included Teri Hatcher (Desperate Housewives, Lois & Clark) in Episode 8, “Abandoned,” James Marsters as Brainiac 5.0 in Episode 4, “Homecoming,” and the return of Alan Ritchson as Aquaman in Episode 9, “Patriot.”
Who’s next? How about John Glover (Lionel Luthor)? Lionel was one of the characters on Smallville that made the show great. His rivalry , or training, of Lex (Michael Rosenbaum) spearheaded the drama from season to season and kept the plot out of Dawson’s Creek doldrums. If you go through Smallville’s history, you can almost tie the show’s major downfalls to the deaths of its beloved characters: first Jonathan Kent at the end of Season 5, then Lionel Luthor and finally Lex Luthor. Well Lionel’s back. Now, if only Rosenbaum would take one for the team and cut his hair to make a finale return. Then all would be right with the world.
“Luthor,” guest starring Glover, premieres Friday, December 3 at 8pm on The CW.
About Smallville Season 10 Episode 10 : Luthor
Tess (Cassidy Freeman) acquires a Kryptonian box that once belonged to Lionel Luthor (John Glover). When Clark (Tom Welling) accidentally activates the box, he’s transported to a parallel universe where Lionel found Clark in the cornfields instead of the Kents. In this universe, Clark Luthor is a murderer and Lois (Erica Durance) is engaged to Oliver (Justin Hartley) and both of them hate Clark. Clark must be careful not to tip off Lionel that he’s not his son while trying to figure out how to get back to Earth where the monster Clark Luthor was transported in his place.
Executive producer Kelly Souders directed the episode written by Bryan Q. Miller.
