Smallville Returns for Season 8

No Lana. No Lex. No Kara. And Clark is M.I.A. That's the scenario the Smallville 8 premiere brings us to. Things will never be the same on the Kent farm and that's exactly what needs to happen in order for Clark to grow as a character and for him to fulfill his destiny.

I must admit I'm already missing Lana and Lex, they were pretty much the back bone of the show for so long. But that last scene with Clark and Lois at the Daily Planet was a charming prelude to their inevitable relationship, which is the stuff legends are made of. Plus the scenes where Clark collaborated with the Justice League made me ecstatic to know that The Green Arrow (Justin Hartley) will be a solid member of this season's cast.

Also, the introduction of a new villain in Tess Mercer (Cassidy Freeman) could prove to be rather intriguing. Will she be able carve her own place in Lex's evil stead. I sure hope so! The battle between Clark and the dark forces is a big part of what makes Smallville so captivating.

What are you thoughts on the new season so far? Where would you like to see the storylines go?

I really liked your comments on Smallville. I missed most of Season 7 and the Premiere of season 8, but i do love the show. I am hearing that they are going to be allowing Clark to grow up and accept his destiny. Ironically for him growing up ultimately means putting on a cape and tights and living a double lifer and in real life someone doing that would be accused of not growing up. I really would like to see Bruce Wayne make an appearance. And I would like to see Clark fly and use all of his powers...if they want to continue to leave costumes out of it that is fine but I do like the costume. It is iconic.

If a young Bruce Wayne made an appearance on the show that would be pretty amazing but I don't think it's going to happen. But you never know! Smallville is definitely one of the best sci-fi/fantasy shows, that's why it's lasted so long. Good storylines, great dialogue and stunning shots. When Smallville ends it will be a bittersweet moment.
