Pa Kent Returning To Smallville?

John Schneider will reprise his role as Jonathan Kent in the 10th, and final, season of Smallville, IGN reports. Just how he’ll do it is a bit of a mystery, considering that Clark’s adoptive father died during Season Five, in one of the show’s most moving episodes.

We’ve seen Pa Kent since his death, of course, as an apparition and as a hallucination. So this could be more of the same. However, he’ll be seen in the season premiere, titled “Lazarus,” which may provide a clue to the nature of his return. According to IGN, Schneider will appear in at least one other episode.

Smallville‘s final season promises “the classic reuniting of the timeless romance between Clark and Lois, and brings Clark face-to-face with his destiny as he overcomes his final trials and forges the iconic identity that will be known for all time.” It’s expected to feature guest appearances by many familiar faces from previous seasons.

The series returns at 8 p.m. EST/PST Sept. 24 on The CW.

    Lazarus Pit maybe?

    I highly doubt that they would bring that into the show. That's just opening up a whole can of worms involving explaining the concept of the Lazarus Pit and probably Ra's Al Ghul. I don't think the Smallville writers can integrate something something that's predominately from the Batman mythos and use it on the show. Sure, they've managed to introduce many characters and concepts from the DC Universe but let's admit it, it wasn't handled all that well.

    Although the Legion of Superheros and Justice Society episodes were pretty good–despite the acting. Though that may be because Geoff Johns wrote them.

    Clark makes a deal with Mephisto after dying coming back to life in a cocoon and then revealing his identity to the world… thus undoing all that had been and his dad's alive.

    wait, that's the worst story of all time. Who would do something like that.
