Smallville: New promos for 10x08
The CW has posted several promos for Abandoned on YouTube. The clip made me tear up, and I'm beyond excited to see Teri Hatcher on the show, but right now I'm more interested in the storyline with Clark and Tess. And I will never think of that sadistic monster of an A.I. as Clark's "dad."

Wow, Lois, amke me cry why don't you.

Oh, and that 30 second preview has me truly excited for the first time. I've been too wrapped up in the awesomeness of Ambush that I was content to wait. Now...not so much. I want it to be Friday NOW.

I lost my dad to cancer, so maybe I'm a little more sensitive because of that, but yeah, she made me cry, too.

There is so much going on in that short promo! This has the potential to be an amazing episode. I'm just excited that Clark and Tess have a storyline together! :)

Yes...I did it! I watched SPOILER vids but I loved them so and that last one, "There Was A Boy" was so well done. Thanks for sharing these T! :)

I hope I didn't corrupt you! ;) That last one gives me chills. The song is perfect.

I'm responsible for my own actions...lol....but you are a temptress! ;) Sad and intimate moment and I can't wait to see how it all pans out.

It's such a special way to bring Teri Hatcher to Smallville, and such a relatable storyline. I think it will be powerful.

Just the promos brought up a lot of feelings for me. I remember how hard it was for me as an adult to watch that terrible disease ravage my father. I can't even imagine facing that as a child.

I think that cover of Nature Boy is perfect for Clark's story, I just love it. Every time I watch the promo I get so excited for the rest of the season! I watch a lot of the CW shows, so I'll be looking to see if they air it during any of them.

I love the "There was a boy" promo! And it's nice to see a glimpse of scenes with Clark and Tess together. Thanks a lot for posting all the clips!

I am so looking forward to this storyline with Clark and Tess, and I'm interested to see what role Clark plays in helping both Lois and Tess face their childhood fears and traumas. It promises to be a big episode.

I am really excited for this episode. I felt so intensely satisfied with "Ambush" on so many levels. I feel like the emotional stakes just keep getting higher and higher each week for these characters...and right now...they have so much to lose. I know that's an odd comment. But I feel like now that we are getting into the nitty gritty of the season with these upcoming episodes....all the emotional development of the last few weeks really soldifies everything that these people have to lose and that they really need to hang on to each other. And I include Tess in that. I really hope that in some odd way they can all become some kind of family unit.

I think the cancer plotline is going to be tough for a lot people. So many people have lost parents to cancer/lost people close to us to cancer/fought cancer ourselves or been touched by it in a very intimate way.

I'm really curious how they are going to reveal what actually happened to Tess as a child. I think everyone is convinced at this point that Lionel was her father....but the question remains...what happened? Why was she abandoned like that? And what the hell is Granny Goodness doing to Clark in that clip? Why is he being tortured????

It also makes me really happy that the clip seems to reveal that Clark will go to the fortress at the end of the episode and see his parents. Big relief there.

Ambush really did put things on a whole new level for all four main characters. I wish every episode could be that good!

You're right, cancer has touched so many lives. My own father's battle with it made me stronger in some ways, and taught me a lot about both my father and myself, but mostly it just devastated me. I don't even want to think about what it would have done to me to lose him that way as a child.

I am SO curious about Tess, too, and I LOVE that Clark is in the middle of this storyline. I can't wait for this episode!

It also makes me really happy that the clip seems to reveal that Clark will go to the fortress at the end of the episode and see his parents. Big relief there.

WORD. Maybe I should have trusted that the show would know how important it was for Clark to be there, but I'm afraid past history has made me wary.

Why isn't it Friday already?
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: November 9th, 2010 10:20 pm (UTC) (Link)
I know! I hope Smallville can take your mind off your troubles, at least for an hour on Friday night. *hugs*

It really does!

I think so, too. I was so happy to see that they updated it! I hope they continue with that theme as the season progresses.

That first preview really hit me. My dad's still around but we've been dealing with him having cancer for a few years and I can completely understand Lois not wanting to see her especially as a child. This really choked me up.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: November 9th, 2010 10:24 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'm so sorry to hear that you're going through that. *hugs* My own father's battle was by far the most difficult thing I've ever had to face. It's a terrible disease.

I am really, really looking forward to Absndoned. And as someone who has also lost a parent to cancer, I'm sure Lois watching the tapes of her mother is going to be very emotional.

The one thing nagging at me about this ep though is this idea that AI Jor-El is Clark's "dad" (he's not, Jonathan Kent is). And I'm also not in favor of Lois going to the FoS to try and make peace, because I honestly think they are going to sweep too many important issues that the AI Jor-El has done in an attempt to allow Lois to play peacemaker. And I'm not OK with that.

So, I'm hoping the episode proves me wrong.

Honestly, I'm not a huge fan of the "There was a Boy" promo. Probably because of how heavily he's weighed towards the romantic part of Clark's life (as you know, not my favorite part of the show), and the almost complete omission of Lex.

The one thing nagging at me about this ep though is this idea that AI Jor-El is Clark's "dad" (he's not, Jonathan Kent is).

I couldn't agree more. The only way I can reconcile Jor-El's behavior over the years is to think of him as a computer program gone horribly wrong (I viewed the resurrection of the FoS in Abyss as a therapeutic reboot), but I know the show will never support that theory. I'm really curious to see where they go with this, because what the A.I. did in Lazarus is in serious contention for the most fucked-up psychological abuse yet.

And I'm also not in favor of Lois going to the FoS to try and make peace, because I honestly think they are going to sweep too many important issues that the AI Jor-El has done in an attempt to allow Lois to play peacemaker. And I'm not OK with that.

You're absolutely right, of course, but at this point, after seeing the clip they released today, I'm amazed they even let Lois tell him off. I'm as easy as ever, but hearing her say those words was sweet.

The "There Was A Boy" promo IS shippy. Oddly, it bothered me more before I saw Ambush, which gave me so much hope for a more balanced season going forward. I love the song, and a lot of the clips they chose from the past, and I have such an emotional response when I watch it! I just hope they give it some air time on the network.

Wheee! But I need to watch last week's ep. *runs*

It's one of the best!

This is going to be really hard for me to watch because I lost my mother to cancer in my early teens so.....I really empathise with what Lois is going through....still it looks really good so...

And that "Nature Boy" promo will never not be awesome!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: November 9th, 2010 10:54 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'm so sorry you lost your mother at such a young age. *hugs* I expect that this episode will feel very personal. I hope it's not too painful for you to watch.

I like this version of the "Nature Boy" promo even better than the first one. It's so different from the promos we usually see, and I love the otherworldly feel it has.

I'm going to need a box of Klenex to watch this episode. Erica is going to shine!
