'Smallville': Behind the scenes of the Luthor family reunion

Like her co-stars, "Smallville's" Cassidy Freeman did her fair share of campaigning (and crossing her fingers) for Michael Rosenbaum's return to the show as Lex Luthor. It's something we spoke with her about before Season 10 had even aired, and we knew that like the fans, she was invested in Lex's return.Our hopes for a scene between Lex and Tess only increased when we learned that they're half-siblings - and luckily, we'll get to see that in the two-hour series finale on May 13. Freeman, who learned of Rosenbaum's return from KryptonSite, says in this behind the scenes video that she'd never met Rosenbaum before his arrival on set."I hadn't met Michael before yesterday," she confirms.

'Smallville' first look: Chloe and Oliver attend Clark and Lois's wedding

The "Smallville" finale is shrouded in mystery -- the official episode description contains as little information as possible, and surprise guest stars have been kept under wraps. We do know one thing for sure: Chloe Sullivan (Allison Mack) will make it to the wedding of Clark Kent and Lois Lane. And, since she's maid of honor, we can see that Lois's taste in bridesmaid dresses is not at all terrible!Frankly, Chloe looks adorable, and we're so thrilled that Mack decided to return to the series for one final bow so that we can say a proper goodbye to the girl we met 10 years ago. "She ends in a very healthy and levelheaded way," Mack has said. "I think that the writers have respected my character for such a long time, and she goes out with the same affection she came in with."She'll be joined, of course, by her date Oliver Queen (Justin Hartley) who... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/05/smallville-first-look-chloe-and-oliver-attend-clark-and-loiss-wedding.html
