Smallville's Tess Takes on a Motherly Role Towards Lex Luthor

Lex Luthor has returned to Smallville - well, a younger, cloned version of him.

As far as we know, Little Lex is the last surviving clone, as the creepy older version burned down the lab in the season premiere before his demise. Now, Tess (Cassidy Freeman) is keeping the little tyke in her care in hopes that he won't grow into the monster Lex Luthor is known to be in the mythos.

"She feels more hope that maybe at a young age, it won't turn into something horrible, that she can have some control over this very innocent child," Freeman says. "She takes a liking to him and she has a mothering quality to her that she's never really been able to share."

"It's like, how do you throw a puppy out even if you know it's going to turn into a mean dog? It's just so innocent that you hope maybe you can have an impact on it."

Tess is known to have hidden motives, though. So what's her deal this time around? "Honestly? Being loved and loving someone, and knowing that she can do good," Freeman responds. "I think she believes that if she can make this kid good, that she will have redeemed herself in some way."
