right... since that got peoples attention lol

here are more spoilers...

Episode #7-1: "Bizarro"

Air Date: September 27, 2007

Written By: Kelly Souders & Brian Peterson

Directed By: Michael Rohl

Guest Stars: Laura Vandervoort (Kara/Supergirl), Phil Morris (John Jones)

  • UPDATED 8/13/07: John Glover does appear in this episode as Lionel, but his screen time is very limited. The preview clip shown at Comic-Con shows Lionel at the side of a river bank. Lionel returns in a much more major way in the season's fifth episode, "Action."

  • UPDATED 7/16/07: New spoilers from S.A.M.: Lex is rescued from a watery grave by a mysterious blond woman. Do the math and it's pretty clear who that blond woman may be.

  • UPDATED 7/11/07: More spoilers from S.A.M., regarding Chloe in the morgue: "Actually it's Clark who saves her. After being informed by the nurse that Chloe has been moved to the morgue, he hears her screaming and uses his supervision to scan the body drawers, where he sees her thrashing around."

  • UPDATED 7/9/07: E! Online is now reporting that Jimmy Olsen is NOT in the premiere after all.

  • E! also says that a female body is in the morgue. S.A.M. tells us that this is Chloe, but that "she is not dead."

  • UPDATED 7/1/07: John Jones, the Martian Manhunter, is in this episode.

  • The season premiere is NOT, nor was it ever called, "Vestige." Rumors went out that an "outline" was released, but it was really all the work of an overzealous fanfic writer. Unfortunately, this title has made its way to the Internet Movie Database, but it IS wrong.

  • UPDATED 6/26/07: Title Posted. Please do not repost this on other websites without a link to KryptonSite.com. (Hey! We called it twice on April Fool's - in 2006 and 2007!)

  • According to a chat at E! Online, the new Daily Planet editor will not be in the Season 7 premiere episode, although they ARE already in the casting process for the role.

  • Supergirl is coming to Smallville! Read "More Season 7 Spoilers" below.

  • No word yet on if Lana lives, though she is on the cast list for Season 7.

Episode #7-2: "Kara"

Air Date: October 4, 2007

Written By: Todd Slavkin & Darren Swimmer

Directed By: James Conway

Guest Stars: Michael Cassidy (Grant Gabriel), Laura Vandervoort (Kara/Supergirl)

  • UPDATED 7/16/07: New spoilers from S.A.M.: Lex, determined to find out who the blond woman is that rescued him, sketches the woman and has his minions searching for her. (The blond woman is Kara)

  • Also from S.A.M.: Lex also has his people looking for someone else, using voice recognition software. They find who they are looking for in China. Could this person that he has found possibly be Lana, alive after all? We don't know, but it could be...

  • UPDATED 7/10/07: Kara expects "Kal-El" to be a baby upon her arrival. She first looks for him in the nursery at the hospital; later, she thinks little boys at a playground may be Kal-El. (Thanks S.A.M.!)

  • After about two seasons of very little interaction, we finally get a scene between Chloe and Lex.

  • UPDATED 7/9/07: Title Posted. Please do not repost this on other websites without a link to KryptonSite.com.

  • Grant's last name is allegedly "Gabriel" according to online reports. Aren't there enough Gabriels in Smallville? (Gabriel Sullivan, the kid who shot at Clark, etc... And what would Gabriel Gray make of this?)

  • Aaron Ashmore (Jimmy) and John Glover (Lionel) do not appear in this episode.

  • Roles currently being cast for the episode include a scientist, an investigator, a boy named Cody, a "Black Suit," a Doctor, Dennis King, and two punks.

  • UPDATED 7/6/07: We hear the new Daily Planet editor, originally referred to as Greg, is now a "Grant." He will be introduced in this episode, since he's not in the episode before it.

  • TV Guide's Mike Ausiello has revealed that Grant will be played by Michael Cassidy of The O.C. fame.

  • Considering Cassidy himself is only 23 years old, chances are good that his character will be more of a "junior editor."

Episode #7-3: "Fierce"


Air Date: October 11, 2007

Written By: Holly Harold

Directed By: Whitney Ransick

Guest Stars: Michael Cassidy (Grant Gabriel), Laura Vandervoort (Kara/Supergirl)

  • UPDATED 8/13/07: Lana Lang MIGHT be back before this episode. (See Rumorville!)

  • UPDATED 7/19/07: Clark takes Kara to Smallville's annual Harvest Festival, where she decides to join the Miss Sweet Corn Pageant. So much for staying incognito.

  • Kara gets a job at the Talon and has a conversation with the establishment's folically-challenged owner. Lex is very curious about her...

  • Chloe gets the scoop on a major story for the Planet.

  • And, some more spoilers from S.A.M.: At the Sweet Corn Pageant, Kara encounters three tough competitors.... so tough, they kill one of the contestants using their various powers (heat, cold, weather), and frame Kara.

  • Clark and Kara have a surprise visitor in the barn.

  • UPDATED 7/16/07: Erica Durance and John Glover do not appear in this episode, but Aaron Ashmore does.

  • UPDATED 7/11/07: Title Posted. Please do not repost this on other websites without a link to KryptonSite.com.

Episode #7-4: "Cure"

Air Date: October 18, 2007

Written By: Al Septien & Turi Meyer

Directed By: Rick Rosenthal

Guest Stars: Phil Morris (Martian Manhunter), Laura Vandervoort (Kara), Dean Cain (Dr. Curtis Knox), ?? (Sasha Woodman)

  • UPDATED 8/13/07: Casting notices have gone out for Sasha Woodman, which implies they may be recasting the role. Hopefully Shonda Farr will be available.

  • UPDATED 8/2/07: Chloe is reunited with Sasha Woodman, the meteor freak from the first season episode "Drone." Sasha claims she is cured from her meteor-induced craziness. (Thanks S.A.M.)

  • UPDATED 7/31/07: Want to know Knox's secret? He's lived for thousands of years. How Vandal Savage of him! (Thanks S.A.M.)

  • UPDATED 7/28/07: Former Superman Dean Cain has been cast as Dr. Curtis Knox.

  • The possibly-villainous Dr. Knox has a special talent - he can "cure" someone from being a "meteor freak," forever changing their lives and rehabilitating them. This news, of course, is of special interest to Chloe. But Dr. Knox may have yet another secret which may mean his deeds aren't necessarily that good.

  • Dr. Knox is working for or with Lex Luthor, so expect some scenes between Dean and Michael Rosenbaum. He might also tie into the over-arcing Level 33.1 story.

  • UPDATED 7/24/07: John Jones, the Martian Manhunter, is in this episode.

  • John Glover, Erica Durance, and Michael Cassidy do not appear in this episode.

  • UPDATED 7/23/07: Title Posted. Please do not repost this on other websites without a link to KryptonSite.com.

Episode #7-5: "Action"

Air Date: Oct. 25, 2007

Written By: Caroline Dries

Directed By: Mairzee Almas

  • UPDATED 8/13/07: The list of "roles being cast" that we originally had for "Action" is actually for the episode "Lara." Our apologies for the mistake!

  • UPDATED 8/11/07: The life of the lead actress in a Warrior Angel movie is in danger. It sounds like some fans on the internet might not like her so much, because her character was not supposed to be a part of the Warrior Angel comic books at that point in his career.

  • There is a lot of meta-humor in this one, including a lead actor who tells his bosses that they promised him "no masks, no flights!"

  • Laura Vandervoort (Kara) does not appear in this episode.

  • UPDATED 8/10/07: Title Revealed. Please do not repost this on other websites without a link to KryptonSite.com. Another website recently felt the need to lift this and all of the other Season 7 titles we've posted, AND ripped off some of the spoilers, as if it's their own "scoop," and that's just really lame and frustrating.

  • Lionel Luthor returns in this episode.

  • This episode involves the filming of a movie based on the Warrior Angel comic books.

Episode #7-6: "Lara"

Air Date: Nov. 1, 2007

Guest Stars: Helen Slater (Lara), Laura Vandervoort (Kara), ??? (Zor-El)

  • UPDATED 8/14/07 (Thanks S.A.M.!): Some government agents have an aquamarine crystal in their possession. The crystal came from Kara's ship. While they are studying it, an intrigued Lex enters the lab.

  • UPDATED 8/13/07: Roles now being cast for the episode include a Hallwell Guard, Lead Tech, Manager, and Kevin. No title for this episode is known at this time.

  • Erica Durance (Lois) does not appear in this episode.

  • UPDATED 8/9/07: This one is called "Lara," and according to S.A.M., we'll also see Kara's father, Zor-El, in this episode.

  • UPDATED 8/5/07: One-time Supergirl Helen Slater guest stars as "Supergirl's aunt," which we can only take to mean that she is playing Lara, Clark's Kryptonian mother.

More Season 7 Spoilers

  • UPDATED 7/24/07: John Jones, The Martian Manhunter, will be back in Season 7. So far we know he will at least be in the season premiere and in episoe #7-4, "Cure."

  • New from the Voices From Krypton Podcast: There will be a reference made to the other "Kara" (from "Covenant") and there might be another confrontation or conversation with Jor-El on the way.

  • Kara will be more of a presence than Green Arrow, and she'll be in at least half of the episodes of the new season. If there is a Season 8, she'll still be around.

  • Look for tension and conflict between Lex and Lois.

  • Clark MAY fly in Season Eight.

  • UPDATED 6/11/07: The CW has issued a new press release talking about Supergirl's arrival and background. The release also contains new spoilers, including the tidbit that she will be taking a liking to Jimmy Olsen (new series regular Aaron Ashmore.) Read the press release!

  • UPDATED 6/11/07: TV Guide has revealed that Clark's Kryptonian cousin Kara, a.k.a. Supergirl, will be appearing - and this time it will be the real deal. Look for her in the Season 7 premiere. Apparently this "Supergirl" will be able to fly and can do some things Clark cannot yet do at this point. Kara will appear in "about half of the season's episodes."

  • UPDATED 6/5/07: New scoop from TV Guide's Mike Ausiello: Smallville's producers are apparently looking for an "extremely hot" thirtysomething actor to play a new editor at the Daily Planet. This character will appear in six of Season 7's first eight epiosdes and will be a love interest for Lois Lane. Hopefully this is not the big announcement we hinted at on Rumorville, since the last thing we need is more triangles.

  • UPDATED 5/27/07: Mike Ausiello of TV Guide spoke to both Erica Durance and John Glover at the 2007 CW Upfronts. Among the things revealed: Chloe WILL survive her whole "pass out after saving Lois" ordeal, according to Erica... and Glover confirms that Annette O'Toole will not be returning this Fall.

  • Does Lana live? Will Chloe be okay? Some speculation on who will and will not be returning can be found at Rumorville.

  • Annette O'Toole will not be a series regular in Season 7. However, Aaron Ashmore (Jimmy) WILL be. (Read the CW's Season 7 write-up!)

  • There is talk that Smallville could possibly go for eight seasons total. Michael Rosenbaum has announced his intention to leave the show after Season 7, but don't worry, he'll still be on the show through that time!

Thats all for now, but i will post more as i come across them :D

time for the weekly Smallville update...

again, Spoiler Warnings...

On the August 24 edition of G4TV's Attack of the Show and IESB.net, it was reported that Tom Welling has been approached to play the Man of Steel for Warner Bros.' big-screen movie adaptation of the Justice League of America.

This morning, we received word from Smallville's executive producer and creator Alfred Gough that this is not the case.

"Completely false. Hasn't been approached. He's under contract to the show through season 8,"
Gough says.The Superman Homepage heard a similar report last night when they seeked confirmation from Gough.
"Hasn't happened, won't happen,"
Gough told them.IESB still stands by their story.
"We have triple checked this out and all indications are that Tom Welling in fact is a go on the WB side I rechecked with my sources and they are all still saying yes, yes Tom Welling, yes Justice League, yes production starts early next year and yes Smallville will have to work around it. Believe me, the IESB will be the first to post a retraction on a story if we are proved wrong, but right now, this is what we are hearing."

Prior to this rumor's surfacing all indications had pointed to Tom having very little interest in ever wearing tights. If it happens, though, it sounds like the studio would have to wait until AFTER Tom's eight-year Smallville contract is up.

Lana Lang Lives?

================

It's the Smallville question of the summer: "Is she or isn't she?"

A poster on the KryptonSite Forum claims to have seen evidence that Lana Lang - or a character played by Kristin Kreuk, at least - is back as early as the season's third episode, "Fierce."

So now the question is, if she IS back... then how and when? Is it really Lana? Stay tuned... Season 7 begins on September 27.

Helen Slater as Lara?

=====================

A new interview on the Newsday website contains some very interesting tidbits and comments from Helen Slater, the actress who played Supergirl in the 1984 movie of the same year.

Most notable in this article was this:

"Smallville's producers are looking to bring me back, as Supergirl's aunt, Now... either Clark Kent has an Earth-bound aunt that we don't know about, or we may be seeing Lara, Clark's mother from the planet Krypton.

Also in the Newsday article, Ms. Slater talks about her movie, and how she hopes Smallville does a better job with Kara Zor-El.

"The character was just a female replica of Superman, so it never made a viable story, It didn't really tap into what Supergirl was experiencing. Hopefully Smallville gets it right."

Supergirl Spin-Off In The Works?

================================

Smallville adds Laura Vandervoort as Kal-El's Kryptonian cousin Kara Zor-El, aka Supergirl. But might there be more planned for her character than just a Smallville guest run?

An interview with Vandervoort's grandfather implies that following her Smallville stint, Kara will be going off to her own series.

Smallville's creators and the show's publicity have not officially said anything about a spin-off.

Big Things for Season 7?

========================

One thing that we keep hearing around here is that there will be big announcements coming this summer about Smallville's seventh season.

The last time we had this level of buzz, we got Aquaman, James Marsters, Tom Wopat, a character death, and one of the best seasons of the series. What could this year's announcements be?

No one's saying anything. A lift on the Batman embargo would be thrilling but unlikely. The return of the Justice League? Possible. Lori Lemaris, or the Legion of Super-Heroes? Who knows.

as usual, keep tuned for more Smallville news as the time for the new season approaches...
