Read the entire interview at Den of Geek HERE. I had no idea either one of them was returning in S10!

I'm chuckling because I wonder if Ms. Slater was supposed to stay mum on these appearances. Normally they swear everyone so such secrecy, and save the surprise leaks for their PR machines.

I'm really looking forward to seeing Teri Hatcher's bit as Lois' mother. It's just kind of a VeryCoolThing to have the former TV Lois Lane play this role.

It is kind of another snicker though that all 3 lead females on this show had sekrit stuff about their long missing mothers pop up into their lives. Remember Lana listening to the tape of her long-dead mother? And of course Chloe's mom got to actually come back to life!

I'm too much a fan of Relic to handle Julian Sands as Jor-El. He just did not work me at all, although he did a fine job with what he was given. I liked Helen Slater as Lara, but wasn't a huge fan of her character in Blue.

Ah well. I'll just enjoy the pretty and hope for the best.

I wondered the same thing. Did they forget to give her the secrecy talk because they assumed no one was knocking down her door for interviews?

I'm looking forward to Teri Hatcher's appearance, too. I watched LnC faithfully, and I identified so strongly with her Lois. I've been a fan ever since. And now we'll have another Superman alum in the same episode!

Smallville has always been rather heavy-handed with the parental issues, haven't they? Clark, Lex, Lana, Chloe, Lois, and Oliver all lost their mothers at an early age, and Clark, Lex, and Lois all had distant, controlling fathers. The Kents really stood out as something unique and wonderful in Smallville.

As much as I love Julian Sands, I can't get past the fact that he looks a lot more like he could be Oliver's father than Clark's. And to put Sands and Slater side by side as Clark's parents is just laughable. How in the world did those two blondes produce that stunning example of tall, dark, and handsome?
