It's funny because when I first read the spoiler, I automatically assumed they were going to kill Chloe. Then you reminded me about the whole "Doomsday kills Clark," thing. :-(

I've been reading some random stuff where people are speculating how many episodes Tom is going to be in next season. I just automatically assumed he'd be in all 22 (or however many there are). I'll be really pissed if he's not in every episode but Chloe is. I know that TPTB forget sometimes, but this is NOT the Chloe show. One person was even suggesting that Clark only appear in 14 episodes and have Oliver/Green Arrow as the main character in the other ones. No!! I like Oliver, but again, this isn't his show. It never even occurred to me that Tom wouldn't be in all of the episodes, but what if that's how they got him to re-sign for another season? *worried*

I don't know, I suppose anything's possible, but I think it would be crazy to have Smallville without Clark, even for a single episode. I guess I could see him going for a deal that gave him more time off, or one that let him direct more and act less. I wonder if they'll tell us anything about Tom's deal, ever.

The site that suggested the season be split between Clark and Oliver has never been a strong supporter of Clark or Tom, IMO, so even though I rolled my eyes at that suggestion, I wasn't terribly shocked to see it.

I've seen speculation that Ausiello's referring to Chloe or Lois, but I still think it's going to be Clark. Not that I'd want it to be either of the other two instead.

I just had a random thought in light of the "2 deaths and stays dead" spoiler. What if they consider Doomsday and Davis as 2 separate deaths? That doesn't exactly go with part of one of the deaths being of a veteran character, but I really think that Ausiello must be twisting words somehow. I don't know. It's just a thought...

I think that's definitely a possibility, and quite frankly, I'll take that over them killing off anyone else, even if it would be a cheat of sorts. I agree, neither character could be considered a Smallville "vet," but that's the thing about spoilers: they're often a little bit wrong, or missing a piece. I don't think anything gets leaked to Ausiello without the full knowledge and cooperation of the show, and this spoiler is doing exactly what they want, I'm sure: creating buzz and controversy, and insuring that people will watch the show until the end of the season to see for themselves what will happen. And all the shippers can't help but be worried about the outcome. Stupid show.

ETA: Oh, and I no longer think it's Chloe, either. Or Lois. Or Tess, she's not a vet. Oliver and Jimmy, I'm not so sure about. *worries* And I don't think it will be anyone offscreen.
