On the next episode of Smallville (Friday, November 6, 2009), Julian Sands steps in to play Jor-El, the father of Superman.
What will this mean for Clark? How can Jor-El still be alive? We all know that Smallville has taken its own direction in telling the story of Superman. We just need to sit back and enjoy the show. Can Clark find his father before Zod does?
Jor-El (guest star Julian Sands) mysteriously arrives at the Kent farm searching for his son, Kal-El, but meets Chloe (Allison Mack) instead. Convinced the Blur is Jor-El, Zod (Callum Blue) enlists Tess' (Cassidy Freeman) help in finding him to force him to reveal the secret to his powers. Clark (Tom Welling) realizes Jor-El is alive and on Earth and races to find him before Zod does. Erica Durance and Justin Hartley also star. Jeannot Szwarc directed the episode written by Turi Meyer & Al Septien.
