Lois Lane's family is making a return visit to Smallville!
General Sam Lane (Michael Ironside) and Lucy Lane (Peyton List), the father and wild-child sister of Lois (Erica Durance), are set to return to in a late-October episode, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.
General Lane and Lucy were last seen in separate episodes during Season 4. The General, however, has been mentioned numerous times, including last season when Lois called to discuss her wedding to Clark (Tom Welling) while under a persuasive spell.
Details on the duo's arrival are sparse, but we hope the General's return has something to do with Lex Luthor, who became the General's boss in the comic books.
Ironside, 60, has appeared in such films as Top Gun, Total Recall and Starship Troopers, and he's voiced Darkseid (who happens to be Season 10's villain) in the Justice League and Superman animated series. List, 24, recently starred on ABC's Flashforward and recurs as Jane Sterling on Mad Men.
Smallville's 10th and final season premieres Friday, Sept. 24 at 8/7c on the CW.
ETA: A little spoiler from Ask Ausiello.
Question: The new Smallville promo shows Chloe holding Dr. Fate’s helmet, but what I want to know is if she actually puts it on? —Thom
Ausiello: Y** she does.
