'Smallville' EPs: 'The Luthor name has a profound impact,' plus dish on returning characters


When it was revealed that "Smallville's" Tess (Cassidy Freeman) is actually a Luthor, jaws dropped. Tess, whose birth name is Lutessa Lena Luthor, was the product of an affair between Lionel Luthor and Pamela Jenkins, Lex's nanny.

"We were very excited that that didn't leak, somehow, because we've had that in the works for a very long time," executive producer Kelly Souders tells Zap2it. "It's going to have a very significant role in her life for the rest of the season. Some of it really comes to a head in episode 10. We'll see how it's impacting her and how it's going to start changing her life a bit."

Episode 10, airing Friday Dec. 3, is aptly titled "Luthor." It explores not only Tess's connection to the Luthor name, but also gives us a glimpse into what would have happened if it was Lionel Luthor, not the Kent family, who found Clark (Tom Welling) in that cornfield after the meteor hit Smallville.
