Scoop on Smallville's 'Unbelievable' Return and the Super Finale To Come

Of course the Smallville series finale will be 31 flavors of super, but will it actually be supersized? And what sort of unbelievably romantic moment can “Clois” fans look forward to?

An epic two-hour affair would seem to be fitting for a show wrapping a 10-year run — and in fact that is “a possibility,” executive producer Brian Peterson tells TVLine. “We’d love that, and it feels like the right way to end.”

At this early stage, however — the midseason premiere arrives Friday, January 28 — “We don’t know yet,” says exec producer Kelly Souders. But whatever The CW decides, “The beauty is that the last two episodes go hand-in-hand,” she notes, “so no matter what happens, it will be an event.”

And the title of said finale event? Is it safe to say that, in keeping with the show’s one-word nomenclature and Clark reaching his destiny, “Superman” will be the name of the game-ending game?

“That is not safe to say,” Souders reports. “We were actually just talking about it [on Friday], and we still don’t have a title. And literally, with the amount of stuff we have to lock down for that episode, the title is the least of our problems.

“It might be a no-brainer [such as “Superman”], but I”m not sure,” Souders allows. (As Peterson acknowledges, bestowing the finale with such a potent and important title is “a whole much bigger discussion.”)

The immediately good news is that while rumors are swirling that a Clark/Lois wedding may take place before the series flies away for good, fans of the supercouple to end all supercouples won’t have to wait four months for out-of-this-world romance.

Rather, “You will see an unbelievable Clark/Lois scene in the first episode back [airing January 28],” Peterson promises. “It is an unbelievable Clark/Lois scene.”

So… who’s ready for January 28? And if “Superman” isn’t the finale’s title, what would you suggest?

    I’d like to see Chloe see Clark as Superman, even if it is a small scene or a text message saying that she saw him or even just a mention that Clark and Chloe talked, if Allison isn’t in the finale or a pre web cam of her. I’d also like to see another scene with Martha and Jonathan.

    Whatever comes after this series has some big shoes to fill…or should I say big red boots? The CW does owe us a 2-hour event a’la “Absolute Justice.”

    Thank you Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders for having nurtured Smallville from its creation into its soon-to-be metamorphosis…Tom and Erica (CLOIS) have really blossomed into a phenomenon like no other romance..I truly believe this show wil morph into Clark & Lois Adventures or something like that..These two actors may or may not realize it, but they do have an “inner bond” and it does show in their interactions and their scenes and to really exemplify it all they have one heck of a supporting cast…. Metamorphosis could be a good title as it does imply change from one form to another in its lifecycle and Smallville is just that it is ready for its next stage in its lifecycle of things to come i.e. Blur to Superman

    Lord! It’s just a TV show!

    In my opinion the did a great job with the show. Much better than Superman Returns. I think they earned the right to take liberties with the story.

    I didn’t hear this much complaining when JJ Abrams blew up Vulcan.

    I didn’t hear this much complaining when Bryan Singer made Superman a deadbeat dad.

    Just relax guys, It’s a great show, quit nit-picking.

    I can’t recall if it had been used in a previous episode title, but “Ascension” could be awesome!

    I’m wondering what will happen with Chloe… In Season 8, when the Legion came from the future to help Clark, one of the guys said : “We don’t know anything about Chloe Sullivan, she is not in our database.” and later “I think the death of Chloe will make Clark fly.”

    It would be “awesome” if Lex would kill Chloe in the finale episode (not that I hate her and want her to die, but we don’t care since it would be the last episode).
