Justin Hartley On Smallville's 300-Flavored Fight to the Death: Fans Are Gonna Go, 'Whoa!'

This Friday on Smallville (The CW, 8/7c) Clark’s journey toward his destiny takes a detour when a most unexpected reappearance by General Slade necessitates a trip to the Phantom Zone.

TVLine invited Smallville executive producers Kelly Souders and Brian Peterson to preview the end of the beginning of mild-mannered Clark’s extraordinary journey. READ MORE
