I actually didn't enjoy this podcast as much as I did their last interview with CF, about a year ago. The interviewer kept trying to be funny, which I found kind of annoying. Mostly he asked questions she couldn't really answer, because doing so would have involved spoiling what's to come, and she was very careful not to do that.

She said Luthor was fun because everyone got to play two versions of themselves, so that confirmed that we'll see both universes during the episode. She also talked about how much she loves playing a Luthor (which she doesn't think is something TPTB came up with until this season), because it gives her story much more weight, and opens up so many possibilities for Tess. She said she thinks Tess is embarrassed to be a Luthor, and that's why she hasn't told Clark yet.

She thinks it would be interesting for Tess to go super dark, and to explore what would drive her to give up all she has gained this season (with Clark and Oliver), but she doesn't know what will happen. She said Tess's instinct will always be to do what needs to get done, even if it's something morally questionable.

I think Part 2 will be her talking about her life and work outside of Smallville. It will be posted next week.

I have to agree about AOT. I always wonder if she was bored with Martha by the time she left the show, with the role of wife and mother and not much else, and just isn't that jazzed to revisit it. I feel like they had to give her the Red Queen persona just to convince her to come back last season. This time she seems most excited to be on set at the same time as JG. I love the way JS (who obviously relishes playing Superman's dad) gushes over Tom, and you could see for yourself at SDCC how deep and genuine their bond is. And I think that comes through in their scenes together. Of course the writing is a big part of it, but nothing in Hostage had anywhere near the emotional impact of that scene between Clark and Jonathan in Lazarus.
