New Smallville promos! - I worship at the television altar — LiveJournal
New Smallville promos!
There are a couple of new Smallville promos for S10, check them out below.

SpoilerTV has a clip from Lazarus with Tess:


The CW site has the promo that aired last night, but with an additional scene from Supergirl at the end. Watch it HERE.

I'm actually encouraged by both of these. It looks like we're not getting Fake!Lex or a clone, we're getting the real Lex. Maybe even onscreen, if you put the best possible spin on what Michael said at Insurgence. The clones are there to heal him, not replace him. Is Lionel involved somehow? And if Lex's DNA can heal Tess, does that mean she's a Luthor?

I still have a sick feeling in my stomach about Kara teaching Clark to fly (because that has to be what Laura was talking about in that CW Connect interview, right?), but at least he's being strong and self-assured in that scene with her. Maybe the episode isn't going to play out like I've been fearing at all. *is trying to be optimistic*

If by any chance you missed the Laura Vandervoort interview, here it is:

Less than a week now! I'm so excited!

I thought the short Boy Preview was amazing. Visually stunning, I'm excited.

I loved that promo, it's exactly what I've been waiting for! I think the song choice was inspired, and I like both of the promos that use it.

I think Friday will be bittersweet, wonderful and emotional, but a little bit sad because it's the last premiere we'll ever see. I can't wait for this season to begin!

I'm OK with the idea of Lex creating clones, because they aren't pretending its Real!Lex. That was always my problems with the fake Lex. But clones? Well, OK. And I like how relevant it keeps Lex to the final season.

This preview is actually the one they should've been showing for weeks now.

As for the Supergirl crap, I haven't changed my mind. Yeah, its great to see Clark being strong...but not if they have him apologizing, or caving in, or somehow pulling a "You were right, I was wrong" thing at the end of the episode. Every single thing I've heard so far about the Kara/Clark sounds like complete ass to me. I love Laura, and I like Kara, but I'm so, so sorry I ever expressed a desire for her to return. I should've known better.

I just don't want a Lex of any kind that isn't Michael, although of course that's still a possibility. I don't know, lately I've been wondering if I should try to somehow let go of all my expectations for S10 (if that's even possible). It sucks to feel let down all the time, and sadly, that seems to be the one thing I can count on this show to do. :(

I agree about the preview. It has the potential to really generate some excitement for the new season, but it may be too little, too late. I love it, and the song.

You're probably right about Supergirl, you usually hit the nail on the head when it comes to Smallville, but I'm still going to hope for the best. I want it too badly not to. *sigh*

I guess I don't think of clones of Lex as being Lex. They are, by definition, knock-off's. So, its alright with me if they have other actors playing them. But if the real Lex comes back, he can only be played by MR. And going by Michael's comments of late, I think he'll be making another appearance on SV.

I understand just wanting to go with the flow, and trying to enjoy it. I'm not built that way, because I hold onto way too much shit. But, really, I wouldn't recommend people be me. I don't give an inch, LOL

You're right about the clones, of course. But I think the writers would have a clone interact with Clark like Lex, would try to make him act and sound like Lex, and the director would be pressured from the top to do the same, so the actor would end up pretending to be Michael playing Lex. If that makes any sense. Ugh, I just don't want anyone imitating anything to do with Clex. It's just too special to me. I hope Michael signs, so I don't have to worry about it.

And you're still my hero. :)

And you're still my hero.

I would be so sad if you ever stopped liking me. Most people I don't care, but that would make me cry :(
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: September 19th, 2010 02:53 am (UTC) (Link)
Me stop liking you? That's just crazy talk! :) I'll never stop LOVING you! *hugs*

I haven't watched these yet, not sure if I want to be spoiled, but I really wanted to use this icon, so ... *waves*
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: September 19th, 2010 01:37 am (UTC) (Link)
LOL! That icon is great! And here's one spoiler you won't mind hearing: Oliver is rumored to be naked in the premiere. :)

Thanks for the vids and info!

I'm not in a very tolerant mood today, so I'll just say this (please, bear with me:) I hated Kara, I hated having her on the show and I hate her return. I do hope the Supergirl episode is less dreadful than it looks, to me, but I don't know why the CW is giving Kara so much relevance if, thankfully, she's just going to be in one episode.


tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: September 19th, 2010 01:54 am (UTC) (Link)
I did feel that it got to the point where Kara was stealing Clark's thunder in S7 with her easy mastery of her powers, but I always enjoyed her relationship with him, and the sibling vibe Tom and Laura brought to their scenes together. But I understand why you feel the way you do. I have been dismayed by most of what we've heard about Supergirl, but until it airs, I'm going to keep on hoping I'm wrong in my expectations.

After that, you and Val can both say, "I told you so." :) And you never have to be tolerant here; I just want you to feel free to be yourself.

I hope he comes back!! Is it Friday yet?

I'm keeping my fingers crossed. I really hope it works out.

Six more days!

Every time Laura says something about this episode my heart sinks more. And as much as I adore her, it somehow makes it worse that she's obviously so happy about it all. I get that as an actress she loves that her character has a significant role to play, but it bugs me that she doesn't seem to know enough about the iconic Supergirl to realize that what she's describing is all wrong. That's one of the things I love about Erica. She gets it, and is protective not only of Lois's characterization as an individual, but how she acts in relation to Clark as well.

I don't know what to make of what Al Septien said. The man co-wrote Salvation, so I assume he has some clue about Clark. Was he just running interference for TPTB, trying to placate us with false assurances? Does he believe what he tweeted, because he DOESN'T get Clark, and never understood why fans were upset in the first place? Or is the episode actually not what we fear it will be?

I wish B&K had as much love for Clark as they do for their shiny DC guest stars. I'm assuming it's Clark who dubs Kara Supergirl, but I take small comfort from that (and if it's not him, my head truly will explode).

I'm really digging the Lex clones for healing! I think it's a good set up and am crossing my fingers that Michael will return!

I'm sick over what I've heard from LV or read about Supergirl. I keep thinking it can't be as bad as it sounds and I'm just hoping I'm some how surprised in the end.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: September 20th, 2010 08:55 am (UTC) (Link)
When I saw that Tess clip, I had a big, "ohhh, NOW I get it" moment, and I felt so much better. I was sure we were going to see a substitute Lex, a clone who could never be anything more than a pale imitation of the original. I love this storyline. It's intriguing, imaginative, heartbreaking, and creepy. Now we just need Michael. In my wildest dreams, he shows up at the 200th episode party to announce his triumphant return. :)

The Tess clip also made me think that I could be just as wrong about Supergirl. I don't see how, in light of everything LV has said, but I'm clinging to hope.

All I can say about Supergirl is I am setting my expectations very low and am fully prepared to believe that the episode never happened :/
