Smallville S9 spoiler clip on iTunes!
Remember that Smallville S9 spoiler Suzanne Gomez spilled on Twitter the other night? Well, now you can SEE it, in a sneak peek clip available for free on iTunes!

If you're outside the U.S. and your iTunes doesn't have the clip, here's a transcript to hold you over until it shows up on YouTube:

Scene opens with Lois walking through a mangled Sky Train car, talking on her cell phone.

Lois: Oliver, I don't know where you've disappeared to, but I'm already low on one superhero today, Chloe thinks I'm crazy, and I'm low on clues as to why some she-ninja is after me. Call me.

Lois picks up a scrap of black cloth, and is studying it intently when a voice comes from behind her.

John: Good find?

Lois turns around to see John Corben, who she assumes is a police detective, framed in the doorway at the end of the car.

Lois: Look, on a scale of one to ten of illegal things I've done in my life, this doesn't even hit the radar. Okay, that didn't exactly come out right. All I'm saying is you and your big boys in blue have bigger fish to fry than this little guppy, so I'm just gonna-

John blocks her exit.

John: How about a name?

Lois: Lois Lane. Daily Planet.

John: You're the reporter that's been missing for three weeks?

Lois: Missing? What the hell are you talking about? What day is it?

John: It's Friday. The 25th?

Lois: What?

Disbelieving, she grabs a copy of the Daily Planet from the wreckage and checks the date.

Lois: Where the hell have I been for three weeks?

John: [chuckles] I was kind of hoping you'd tell me. You were MIA until your name came up on the list of crash victims. Now, do you remember anything last night that would explain how a 7-ton Sky Train belly flops onto Main Street without a single fatality?

Lois: Guess we just need to chalk it up to a modern day miracle.

John looks past Lois to a Superman shield burned into the window of the train car.

John: We could, or we could chalk it up to a vigilante. On an ego trip.

Lois: Oh, is that what we call courage these days?

John: The infamous Blur. You know, the ends don't always justify the means.

Lois: You might want to stick to your night job, detective. Graffiti's not exactly the Red Blue Blur's style.

John: You know, you're right. Never used to be, back when the guy was happy pulling off a few modest saves, but then suddenly there was no red, or blue, it was just the Blur. Now he feels the need to leave his mark. All over the city, to, I don't know, prove something?

A police dispatcher's voice crackles over a radio. Lois turns at the sound.

Lois: Right, the rest of your posse to interrogate me-

John grabs her and kisses her, for a good five seconds. A cop in uniform interrupts.

Cop: Hey! You two want membership in the mile long club, you might want to try one that's still on the tracks. Get outta here.

Lois: Okay, Officer.

John: Not bad.

Lois smiles sweetly, and then stomps on John's foot with her heel, as hard as she can. She turns with a flip of her hair, and stalks out of the car. John watches her go, smiles, and laughs.

Thanks a lot for the transcript but... first clip and no Clark? That's always a disappointment to me.

(I hope you are doing fine!)

I know, I'm DYING to see him in more than those brief flashes we got in the trailer they released. And where are the promo pics? They're tormenting me!

Thanks for thinking of me, Carol! Things are very intense, but I'm holding my own, and learning lots. I just hate how all-consuming it is. Hopefully that will get better.

I love your icon, it's gorgeous!

So it is a forced one sided kiss then between Lois and Corben. That makes me feel better. Also I love the fact she's sticking up for TRBB

Yeah, he's an arrogant bastard! :D It's a great scene, I can't wait to see more!

Thanks so much for the transcript. Stupid Canadian iTunes. *grumble*
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: September 2nd, 2009 09:07 am (UTC) (Link)
It doesn't show up in Canada either? That always baffles me, they MAKE the freaking show there! I'm sure it will be up on YouTube soon.

It's a fun scene, they're great together!

Yay! Thanks for the heads up. I'm already a little bit addicted to iTunes, so this is awesome for me.

I'm more than a little bit addicted to iTunes. I recently had to buy a 1TB external hard drive just to hold all the shows I've downloaded over the years. *facepalm* I've been an iTunes devotee ever since the beginning, back when they only had two shows, LOST and Desperate Housewives. :)

But I originally joined iTunes to download the Aquaman Pilot. See how everything leads back to Smallville? :D

Thanks for the transcript! I feel better about the Lois & Corben kiss but where is Clark??? I need some Clark!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: September 2nd, 2009 08:12 pm (UTC) (Link)
I agree! I liked the scene a lot, but I have to admit I was disappointed Clark was nowhere to be found in it. :(

I love that we get a sneak peak but I was disapointed too it wasn't of Clark...but I'll take it at least now the rumor of who initiates the kiss can be laid to rest it's ALL John

Thanks for doing this
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: September 2nd, 2009 08:32 pm (UTC) (Link)
I was glad it at least clarified that the train wreck, and the look Clark gives Lois (*points to your icon*), happen in the present, not the future. I wasn't clear about that. And of course it was going to be a one-sided kiss, but I'm also happy to see the speculation about that put to rest.

I've been routinely checking iTunes every night when I get home from work, just to see if a preview shows up. I was so excited last night when I clicked on Smallville and there it was! Like you, though, I was disappointed Clark wasn't in it.

Thank you for this! Sounds good to me! :D

BAG was so good, and they had great chemistry together! I loved how Lois stuck up for Clark. I'm totally excited for S9!

Why would the first clip of the new season not have Clark in it?

Thats a bad sign.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: September 2nd, 2009 08:52 pm (UTC) (Link)
I know what you mean. All those thoughts went through my head: Did Tom ask for reduced screen time in S9, and this is the result? Is the show all about Lois now? Or Zod/DC characters/anyone but Clark? But I think the other possibility is that they're trying to build anticipation for who Clark has become, and entice viewers to tune in to the premiere to get their first good look at him.

Similarly, by this time last year we already had the Odyssey promo pics to swoon over. This year we haven't seen anything except that one pic of BAG as Metallo. But the one other image we have seen is this one, which also, to me, is all about the anticipation:

I'm hopeful that their focus is right where it should be, and that they're just making us wait for it.

Thank you so much for telling us about this clip!!!! It was awesome of course, but like others have said, Where's Clark!?!?!?! I hope there's another release of a sneak peek that involves him.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: September 2nd, 2009 10:08 pm (UTC) (Link)
I felt so special for finding it. LOL! After I posted the news on Twitter, it was fun watching the word spread, to SHoE, then K-Site, then DI, and then back to Twitter again. :D

I hope they're just holding Clark back for now, either for the premiere itself, or for another promo closer to when Savior airs. Smallville is kind of in the second wave of returning shows, so maybe they'll have a second promo to keep fan interest at its peak.

I thought you were going to be MIA. Good to see you back and Squeee! for season 9!!!

tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: September 3rd, 2009 08:56 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oh, I am MIA, believe me. My work schedule is insane, and I don't have time to read my flist, or comment on anything anyone else is posting. But when I found this on iTunes, I HAD to share! :)

I can't wait for S9!! *joins you in the SQUEEEE*
