Smallville's Last Season


I'm sure we've all heard by now that season 10 will be Smallville's last.  Our own Mr Welling spilled the beans, and the CW and other media outlets were quick to confirm it.  It makes me giddy that we first heard this information from Tom himself.  That just seems to fitting to me.

So, I guess I'm asking the obvious question....Knowing that this is the last season, what is it that you really, really want/need to see in S10?  Is there one thing?  Are their 10 things?

And expanding on that, what characters do you absolutely NEED to guest star in S10?  And what guest stars would you just like to see in SV's last hurrah?


And I leave this post with this picture from the recent book signing.  I was so busy staring at Gorgeous Tom, I didn't even stop to look at the cover of the book.  My Tom is such a sentimental guy. ;)

I couldn't help myself. ;)

I love your list!

Truth be told, at this point, I could live without more Martian Manhunter. On the condition there Martian Manhunter does continue to show up from time to time.

I definitely want one more face-to-face encounter between Clark and Lex. Thats #1 on my wish list.

I'm not sad either. I think its time. I'm excited to know that there's no more reason to stall. They've got 22 eps to bring this puppy home. I love the structure in that.

I find myself really wanting to see Kara again on the show. And I don't remember even liking her so much when she was on. But I missed her, and I really like Tom and Laura together. Knowing that she ADORES him doesn't hurt.

LOL! I LOVE that book cover!! ♥

My wish list? Honestly, I haven't really thought about this too much, so this is totally off the top of my head:

1) Lots and lots of Clark. Strong, smart, noble, kind Clark. I want the episodes to revolve around him, and give us his POV. Like Salvation did.
2) Flight. And ONLY from Clark! I've had enough of other characters flying!
3) Lois knows. No taking that back! And more kisses like the one in Salvation!
4) More reporter story lines.
5) Cassidy Freeman back for sure.
6) Perry back as much as possible. And Martha can come, too. :)
7) Lex for the (two hour) finale at least.
8) More Emil!
9) Maggie Sawyer
10) More shirtless scenes for Clark (I had to throw in one shallow one).

When I saw the pics of him holding that book up, I just knew I had to play with them.

#1 is absolutely the MOST IMPORTANT THING!

Taking back Lois' knowledge of Clark's true identity would go a long way to undoing all the great stuff they did in the finale, and I'm not even kidding about that. No backsies!

Lex for the finale! Absolutely. I hope they can work it out with Michael.

I adore Emil. I was sorry that he didn't appear in any of the later eps. I hope he's back next season.

What makes you so friggin special?

He spent just as much time with me as he did with you. Even more, because I met Mr. Welling in Freaks and Geeks when he was a mere Frat boy. I take heart that that book looks pretty slim to me.


It's not all about you. NO.

  • The suit, the flight, the spit curl, and the sun in Metropolis must all be seen and savored.

  • The Luthors must rear their cobra heads ready to strike.

  • Jor El must beg Forgiveness and Defer to Clark's better judgement.

  • There must be a whole episode devoted to every shirtless scene that Clark has ever done. And Ollie can introduce it and narrate it, shirtless.

  • There must be first time sex in the sky with Lois and not just elevator foreplay.

  • There must be an announcement of a new series that Mr. Welling stars in, where he gives the shirt off his back to worthy fan gurls people, every week.

  • And there must be a Smallville Wake that lasts the whole last half of the last season.

    Now, don't be a Hater. :p

    (God, I loved Adams on Deadwood!)

    And I will have you know that me and my sister rented every ep of Freaks and Geeks, all so we could see Tom's 30 seconds, and listen to the commentary from Judd Apatow.

    I'm sort of hoping that Oliver gets this terrible skin rash in S10 that requires him to wear baggy sweatshirts all the time. ;)

    I want the first Clois sex scene to be in a unique location, but I'm not sure I want flying sex.

    I will bring the booze to the Smallville Wake. Lets do this up, Irish Style!

    That book SIZZLED! I loved it so much I had a copy bronzed and framed!
    What a writer, huh? He really paints a picture. I mean, my scene especially! I didn't think he'd put in the sexy sex sex I had with him but he totally did!

    Anyway, I guess that I want what everyone else wants from Season 10.

    1. Clark. Loads of him.
    2. Good characterization on everyones part, especially Lois'. Sometimes, for the sake of story, the writers completely screw with characterization and there is NOTHING I despise more.
    3. The sweet release of Chloe's death
    4. Kara back. Cause I loved her. Don't judge me.
    5. Clark flying.....obviously.
    6. WAY less Ollie
    7. Most importantly, HAPPY CLOIS! Happy, right Clois. Not Clois that is backseated for a stupid characterization or a useless FWB 'relationship'.

    Oh, and also I want Chloe to die. Deadsys, I NEED that to happen. Or for her to just leave and never come back.

    Also, I believe you owe me a nicely salted hat,dear?

    Wait, What? There's a *You* scene in the book Tom wrote for me?

    That cad. That Hot, Sexy, Gorgeous Cad. I'm so over him...and when I saw "over him", I mean I want to hover over him all the time.

    Loads of Clark for S10!!!! It must happen.

    I want Kara back too!!!

    And less Oliver works so well for me. Just look at the back end of S9? He turned into Chloe's boyfriend, and not much else.

    Alas for you, I don't think Chloe will be shuffling off her mortal coil.

    Do I owe you a salted hat? Oh yeah, I probably do. Ummm, its in the mail?

    Tom looks very content with his wonderful book!

    1) Since there are no casual viewers left, only obsessive fans, I want 22 episodes of tightly plotted arc. No detours into Oliver's man-pain; no waste-of-time "comedy" episodes like "Escape."

    2) Clark at the forefront of every episode. Lots of juicy speeches for Tom. "Salvation" is a good template to follow.

    3) Romantic moments with Lois to occur interspersed with action and reporting, not to take over entire episodes. If Lois doesn't know the secret by the first ep. to have her find out fairly early in the season.

    4) More episodes where Clark and Lois chase down a story.

    5) A decent exit arc for Chloe. Allison got a raw deal on plot this year. My preferred ending for Chloe is for her to take the Legion ring and go into the future.

    6) However, if Allison is only in limited episodes, I don't want her arc to derail the season as the S8 Lana-arc did.

    7) Would like Lana to get a mention and be de-kryptonited (doesn't have to happen onscreen if KK doesn't return.) Would be nice for Clark to get a letter from her, read by KK in voiceover, establishing their life-long friendship in canon.

    8) If Chloe is MIA for part of the time, how about adding another lady to Clark's world? I suggest this lady:
    Photobucket

    9) For Clark and Tess to regain their tense (yet hot) relationship of S8. After "Salvation", she deserves a little shot at redemption! No more Tess manhandling next year.

    10) Darkseid is hard to do on a budget...so better to suggest his presence through scary minions like Granny Goodness, then go HUGE for the final episode.

    11) If Michael returns, I want Lex on Clark's side of the Darkseid battle, as in Justice League. I don't want Lex back to play deux ex machina, as he was written in Requiem.

    12) I want the very final scene to be Clark and his mother - Martha giving her baby up to the world. I will WEEP.

    13) And lastly, I want a special edition dvd boxset featuring cast-favourite episodes from all 10 seasons, including behind the scenes footage and commentary from the cast, especially Mr. Reclusive himself.

    (Not too demanding, am I? *g*)

    Hahaha! Great picture.

    Oooh the very first post in the comments section has most of the things I want to see in season 10. Last season! Eeeeee!

    Thank you :)

    I have a feeling most of us want to see the same things.

    You are the luckiest girl alive. Tell me, what is it like having Tom Welling as your soulmate?? Btw, you are my new BFF. ;)

    Well, you know its hard having to share him with the world. But somehow, I manage. ;)

    funny, I think a lot of people want to be my BFF now. LOL

    LOL! He wants the WORLD to know of your epic love!

    Of course he does. It can no longer be denied. Not even with that minx, Maggie Q, looking him all up and down at the upfronts.

    LOL That book cover is awesome! Would you send a copy to me? I want to learn from your mistakes for when I get my own chance with him, which I'm sure I will. :D

    I'm thrilled that Tom himself announced season 10 will be their last! I hope it's a season totally focused on Clark, a pay-off to everything we were waiting for, a season that doesn't waste screentime in storylines or characters that go nowhere but finally does justice to Clark/Superman. And of course Clark has to fly!

    I can see it now...Tom's next book will be "Multiple Soulmates", My life with Carol too!

    I hope S10 is wall-to-wall Clark. *fingers crossed*

    I would never have pegged Tom for a tell all, but I guess the story of your epic love could no longer be denied.

    Things I need:
    - Clark, Clark, Clark!
    - Use Salvation as a template for how to use the supporting cast
    - Allow Clark to express POV
    - Flight
    - More journalism, with attention paid to the process rather than instant solutions
    - Lois to remain in the know (though I think it could be funny if she pretended not to know and Clark got jealous of himself)

    Things I'd like
    - Lex if MR is on board with it for a few episodes to the end. Like many others, I'd love to see him and Clark form an uneasy alliance against Darkseid. that would tie in nicely with the redemption theme the show seems to have adopted
    - Martha and Perry for as many episodes as possible, together or apart
    - Lana mention or cameo, just to demonstrate that Clark still cares for her but has completely moved on
    - Kara mention or cameo - what happened to her? I'd love it if she somehow got trapped by Darkseid when looking for the Kandorians
    - A proper send off for Chloe that doesn't derail the series the way Lana's did in S8

    He's just so happy, he needs to tell the world!!!

    Salvation should totally be the benchmark they use for next season.

    I'm hoping for a really good journalism arc for both Clark and Lois. It would be lots of fun if Cat Grant showed up on a recurring basis. I love the idea of Lois having an annoying rival.

    I love that Tom really wants Michael, Kristin, Annette and John S all back for next season. Now that he's a full-on producer, I think he's going to be making some calls.
