TERI HATCHER GUEST STARS AS ELLA LANE; DC COMICS’ CHARACTERS GRANNY GOODNESS (CHRISTINE WILLES) AND HARRIET (GUEST STAR LINDSAY HARTLEY) APPEAR — Lois (Erica Durance) finds a video made for her by her mother, Ella Lane (Hatcher), before she died. After watching the tape, Lois makes a drastic decision about her relationship with Clark (Tom Welling) that takes her to the Fortress, where she comes face to face with Jor-El and Lara... Meanwhile , Tess has a nightmare involving herself as a child and a music box. Upon awakening, she finds the music box in Luthor mansion and sets out to find out who planted it there. Clark accompanies her to an orphanage run by Granny Goodness (guest star Christine Willes) who may not have the young girls’ best intentions in mind. One of the young women living there, Harriet (guest star Hartley), finds Clark snooping around and decides to take matters into her own very sharp hands. Kevin Fair directed the episode written by Drew Landis & Julia Swift (##3X6008).
I didn't know what to make of the mention of Jor-El and Lara at the Fortress with Lois, but then this morning an interview with Helen Slater popped up in my Google Alerts, and in it she says that she and Julian Sands appear in an episode of Smallville!
The other way you've come full circle too is with Smallville, a seeming alumni club for those involved with Superman!
I have to say I think it's my favourite job in the last 10 years. It's so fun, and then when I did the conventions the fans loved the connection. It's been such a positive experience. They're so nice over there, and they make me very goddess-y over there! [laughs] Lots of make-up, and beautiful hair.
So, you're just doing some stuff on the final season...?
Julian Sands and I are doing an episode. I wish it was more because it was so much fun doing it. But I guess they've got it all written. We're just doing one episode.
Read the entire interview at Den of Geek HERE. I had no idea either one of them was returning in S10!
In other news, TVGuide.com posted an article about the Clark and Lois romance, with quotes that I assume are from interviews conducted at the 200th episode party, and Tom Welling had this to say:
It's always interesting to test the bounds of any relationship. It's interesting to see how they will become who they will be in the future.
Read the full article with additional quotes from Erica Durance at TVGuide.com HERE. I agree with Tom. And I hope we don't miss out on that now that Clark has actually seen what the future holds. I don't want the show to take anything for granted.
