8 Reasons Why This Week's Smallville Is Golden
If you follow me on Twitter (and really, why wouldn’t you?), you’ve already gotten a taste of my enthusiasm for this Friday’s Smallville (The CW, 8/7c). But only so much can be expressed in 140-character blasts. So if no one minds, allow me to elaborate — in a teasey, rather spoiler-free manner — on why “Booster,” which was penned by Geoff Johns and directed by series lead/exec producer Tom Welling, is a bit of Smallville gold.

Born Luthors: Smallville's Cassidy Freeman On Clinches With (Evil) Clark and the Joy of Lex
This Friday at 8/7c, The CW’s Smallville resumes its 10th and final season with a “universe swap” à la the December episode “Luthor.” So, while our Clark (played by Tom Welling) is in alt-Earth doing his best to set straight a distraught (and alive) Jonathan Kent, Clark Luthor once again is on the prowl over “here,” hoping to partner with his (adopted!) sister, Tess, in all sorts of ways.
Cassidy Freeman spoke with TVLine about her latest run-in with that Clark, as well as previewed the moment many have waited for: Tess meeting her other brother, Lex. READ MORE & WATCH VIDEO
5 Smallville Episodes Left, 8 Burning Questions!
With The CW’s Smallville set to resume its final season this Friday at 8/7c, TVLine spoke with executive producer Kelly Souders about the last five episodes.

Question: I’m dying for more information on Castle and Beckett sharing the same hotel room in Castle‘s upcoming L.A. episode. —Ashley
Ausiello: It’s not as contrived as it sounds. There’s actually a very plausible explanation for the slumber party. “Beckett booked a hotel on a cop’s salary that’s located all the way out in the valley,” explains exec producer Andrew W. Marlowe, “and Castle has a two-bedroom suite at a high-end hotel in Beverly Hills.” Um, duh. The Valley vs. 90210? Take it from an L.A. sorta-native — it’s a no-brainer. Anyway, one thing leads to another which, in turn, leads to… sex? “She certainly thinks about it, and considers it,” teases Marlowe. “She’s emotionally raw because they’ve come out to Los Angeles in the aftermath of the murder of her training officer, so she’s dealing with those emotions and kind of where she is in life. We call it our ‘Walls of Jericho’ moment for any [viewers] out there who are fans of It Happened One Night.” (Someone please CliffsNotes that last sentence for me in the comments; I cover TV, not movies.)
Question: Any scoop on The Big Bang Theory? —Amanda
Ausiello: An upcoming episode sounds as much like Grey’s Anatomy as it does BBT. When Howard breaks it to his overbearing mother that he and Bernadette are engaged, …READ MORE
