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.
