Smallville: New 10x06 preview clip
The CW has posted the Harvest promo we saw last Friday after Isis, and a preview clip. Shallow fangirl that I am, I mostly noticed that a) Clark is going to be shirtless, and b) judging by how he looks dressed, it's going to be the highlight of the episode. :)

Smallville "Harvest Preview Clip":

Smallville "Harvest Preview":

So it looks like Clark and Lois are going to make love in Harvest (given the spoilers we've heard, I'm guessing that scene will be the last of the episode, with the General and Lucy surprising the happy couple by arriving at the Kent farm bright and early the next morning). If they do, I'll be happy to see it. I was afraid the show was going to go back to the ridiculous delaying tactics we saw last season. I just hope Clark tells Lois the rest of his secret first, but I think that flash of Virgil Swann's journal means that he will. I'm assuming we're talking about Super!Sex here; anything else would be a major cop-out.

I think it's cool that Smallville brought Connor Stanhope back to play Alexander. Will Lucas Grabeel be next? ;) I'm still totally torn about the whole Clone!Lex storyline. On the one hand, a clone could always have a hidden mutation or two, so if Alexander grows up to be EVOL, I can still hold on to the more complex characterization Michael Rosenbaum gave to Lex. And Clone!Lex is better than Fake!Lex. Plus Tess's role in all of this fascinates me. On the other hand, if the show somehow does the impossible and brings Michael back, I want to see him play the real Lex, not a copy of him (even if he does supposedly have Lex's memories). Mostly, though, I just wish we had a definitive answer about whether or not Michael will return. If it's no, just tell me, so I can accept it and move on.

To be fair, I imagine any kind of sex with Clark would be pretty super. :)

I adore Clois but all I can think of is shirtless Tom, Tom will be shirtless and and naked.

I'm hopeless

You're not the only one! ;) And we know there will be sex, because of the candles! Candles always equal sex on Smallville. :D

Clark shirtless? I'm all for it! I guess that alone will make this episode a much more interesting one than Isis. :D

Thanks for the clips!

And it looks like we get to see him in a tight henley as well! But no promo pics for this episode, evidently. *sigh*

I want the real Lex! *pouts*
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: October 26th, 2010 12:14 am (UTC) (Link)
Me, too! *pouts with you*

I can't say I would blame Michael for staying away, though.

I am REALLY excited for this episode. And shockingly...it's not just because Tom will be naked or because Clark and Lois will finally get it on. (Although those are valid reasons to be excited in my book because Tom's body looks better than ever right now and Clark really really deserves great sex.)

I'm really excited for the crazy horror storyline. The promo is deliciously creepy. The preview clip made me laugh. Although Clark and Lois have had focus in the first 5 episodes...they really have not shared more than a few minutes together this season in each episode. This will be the first episode this season where we will really see them working together side by side throughout the course of the episode. It looks like they are going to have to stick together to survive in this one.

I'm also realy excited to see what is going on with little Alexander and Tess. I'm really enjoying that storyline.

All in all, this is one of my most highly anticipated episodes. It looks scary!

I'm looking forward to this one, too. We've had a campy Halloween episode, now we get to have a scary one! With Al & Turi writing and Turi directing, it should be good. And the whole issue of Clark potentially being overprotective is a big one in his relationship with Lois; after all, that's what kept him from telling her his secret for so long.

I think Tom is in the best shape of his life right now. I can't wait to see the results of all that kick-boxing we heard about on Twitter! ;)

I love the way Lois watches Clark in the clip. She's just so delighted to see her Man of Steel in action!

I totally agree. I think it's a pretty interesting conflict between them because I can understand both perspectives. This is such a huge issue with the Clark/Lois myhtos relationship and I'm so glad that Smallville is going to address it in their own way and in a way that is totally relevant with the way the characters have been portrayed together on the show.

On the one hand, obviously Clark shouldn't have lied to her to get her off the story. He can't deceive the person he loves in the name of protecting her. If he has a concern about her safety, he needs to find a more honest way to get through to her that is fostered in respect and not dishonesty.

That being said, I think Lois has an important lesson to learn too. Lois is going to be Lois. I think Lois' bravery and boldness is part of the reason why Clark loves her so much. I don't think he would want her to change. BUT---Lois does need to learn that now that they are together---her safety affects them BOTH. When you are in a serious relationship like that...you do have accountability to the other person. If she's reckless with her life that doesn't just affect her anymore-it affects Clark too. His feelings and fears and concerns should be respected. They just have to find a way to meet in the middle and talk about this stuff with honesty.

I'm just excited to see them working together throughout the course of an episode again. It's been a long time since we've gotten that on the show. They work well as a team and it's often through that interaction that we get to see why they are so perfect for each other. So I'm really looking forward to it.

I admit I'm a scaredy cat and I get scared pretty easily. So hopefully I'll be able to survive the creepiness!

You know, I was thinking about the dance that shared at the end of Homecoming and it seems unfathomable that after those "ILY's" that they didn't have LoveSex that night. Right? Sparkly lights, romantic music, CLARK! I mean, how on earth could Lois walk away from that man after all that? LOL... I choose to think there was at least some Everything But happening. ;)

I agree! Not to mention what I think must have happened right there in that Daily Planet storeroom after Lois leaped into Clark's arms. :) But I still can't believe Lois fell asleep at the inn in Escape, or that Clark walked away after bringing her home from that trip. Or that they ever bothered to get out of bed the morning Clark snuggled up to Lois in Upgrade and kissed her awake!

Is it blasphemous to say - I'm looking more forward to the creepy Children of the Corn vibe I'm getting from all of this and seeing Lois and Clark working as a team to survive the horrors they will probably face than I am to them finally having sex? Because I am.

The sex will be the desert. Everything else before will be the meal IMO.

I think you're absolutely right. Unlike Isis, where the final scene is the only thing that made the episode worthwhile for a lot of people, here I think it will be the happy ending to an exciting and harrowing adventure.

I had to watch the clip several times to catch what was going on, because Tom's chest in that shirt was way too distracting and then to end the scene with him walking away like that! *faints* All I could think of was I'm going to see Clark shirtless in this one.

I really enjoyed Rabid last season and I'm thinking the creepy in this one looks good and fitting for Halloween weekend. I also think that Clark wanting to keep Lois safe and being over protective of her is a good issue to cover. Lois is...Lois and even though she gets herself in trouble, he can't expect her to not be who she is. Though it looks like she is going to get a little lesson in being more careful in this episode.

I'm thinking if Michael doesn't come back clone Alexander will grow up to be the new evil Lex. If Michael comes back, the Lex that was blown up by Ollie was clone Lex and the real one is still alive. That could be how the clone Lex in the premiere had knowledge of Clark loving Lois, which took place after he blew up. Plus, the clone in the tank looked kinda like the fake Lex that blew up. If any of that makes sense. LOL Still crossing my fingers and toes that Michael returns.

Can you even believe how good he looks? Yowza. And you better believe I'm going to savor this episode, because who knows if we'll see him shirtless again? Although I do have high hopes of at least a glimpse of him in skin-tight spandex before we say goodbye to Smallville forever...

Rabid was one of my favorite episodes last season. If Harvest is anywhere near as good, I will be a very happy camper. And I love that we're getting both a Halloween and a Thanksgiving episode this season!

Lois has told Clark that she's willing to take on any risk to be by his side, but I don't think it will be easy for him to fully accept that, or even let her brave the normal dangers of being an investigative reporter. I'm glad to see the show explore that, especially so soon after Clark tells Lois he's the Blur. They're destined to be true partners, and I want to see how they get there.

I'm maintaining that Fake!Lex was a clone no matter what. He had one of those creepy breathing masks and everything. I'd love it if Alexander were just a backup plan, and that if Michael came back he would be Clark's Lex, and our Lex. I hope the show sees it the same way.

Thanks for the clips! :)

Needless to say I look forward to the fun parts (including the glimpses of naked Tom skin!), but not so much to the creepy stuff. Besides, seeing Clark powerless and being slashed/stabbed again just 5/6 episodes after Salvation/Lazarus is somewhat redundant to me. I´ve seen too much Clark torture on this show, so that I can´t really stand it any more.

As for Lex, I guess I am one of those who don´t really care about MR´s return. However, having Lex back as a clone would be lame IMO, because what defines Lex most are his experiences (7 seasons of SV after all!), and a clone simply won´t have them. Even if he had some innate gene defect predisposing him to sociopathic behavior, he would not be Lex, but just another bad man. And the whole thing would smell of Henry Alexander Luthor, who was not the real deal. Then I´d rather opt for no Lex at all.
