"'What do you think?' Peterson responds with a laugh. 'No, no…. Metropolis has amazing plastic surgeons.'"
Well, Oliver Queen can certainly afford the best! Now I can watch without freaking out. Whew! ;) I do have one question, though. Is Clark even IN this episode?
‘Smallville’ Preview: Who Will Be Sacrificed?

This week on The CW’s ‘Smallville‘ (Fridays at 8/7c), Tess (played by Cassidy Freeman) breaks into Watchtower – but as a Checkmate agent or Kandorian sympathizer? Whatever her agenda, she is thwarted and then literally entrapped by the superhub’s top-shelf security system, as is Chloe herself.
When Chloe (Allison Mack) realizes that Team Zod is attempting to hack into the Watchtower server and download world-imperiling data, Clark’s right-hand gal is prompted to “make a drastic move,” says the CW.
Considering the episode’s title, “Sacrifice,” one must wonder: Will Chloe be forced to destroy Watchtower in order to save Earth from the Zod menace?
‘Smallville’ executive producer Brian Peterson appreciates – yet must dismiss – the theory that a what and not a who is the titular sacrifice. “No, there is an actual sacrifice,” he told Fancast. “One of our characters is in fact sacrificed.”
While Chloe and Tess deal with their dire predicament, Green Arrow gets embroiled in a brutal confrontation with Zod. The heated face-off leaves Oliver flirting with a flat line and a signature “Z” scorched onto his chest.
Whoa. Forget that aforementioned sacrifice whatnot. Should Oliver somehow survive, will ‘Smallville’ fans have to part with shirtless Justin Hartley scenes?!
“What do you think?” Peterson responds with a laugh. “No, no…. Metropolis has amazing plastic surgeons.”
Hopefully Ollie can hold on, because it sounds like Clark will need some serious backup when ‘Smallville’s season finale rolls around on May 14. Already, it’s been reported that the likes of Hawkman (Michael Shanks), Stargirl (Brit Irvin) and Martian Manhunter (Phil Morris) will resurface in time for a super rumble.
“We have a full guest list,” Peterson acknowledges, previewing the Season 9 capper. “And while I am not able to speak about who survives and who doesn’t, I can tell you that from Zod to Tess to Lois-and-Clark and Lois-and-The Blur to Chloe and Oliver, to the burgeoning JSA and JLA, it is a great bookend to everything we started this season.”

This only looks like a screen grab from Dancing With the Stars. It’s actually a sneak peek at the wet-’n-wild showdown Smallville‘s staging in its May 14 season finale between Clark and Zod. Our money’s on the future Superman, natch, but his nemesis’ dagger is made of blue kryptonite — you know, the kind that strips our hero of his powers — so at least he has a, um, fighting chance.
