First Look At Lex And Clark Reunited In Smallville Finale

Although The CW’s new TV spot gave us a glimpse of Michael Rosenbaum’s return as Lex Luthor in the Smallville finale, Entertainment Weekly now calls dibs on the first photos from the May 13 episode.

As you can see, there’s Lex, wearing a glove on his right hand, talking with Clark (Tom Welling), and basking in the glory of … something. Here’s the official episode description:

BE THERE AS SMALLVILLE WRAPS UP CLARK KENT’S TEN-YEAR JOURNEY IN AN EPIC TWO-HOUR SERIES FINALE — The story of Clark Kent (Tom Welling) culminates in this epic two-hour series finale as Clark takes the last step to becoming the Man of Steel. With surprise guest appearances, nods to the first few seasons of the series and Michael Rosenbaum’s return as Lex Luthor, this final episode wraps up a decade-long story following one’s man’s journey to becoming the world’s greatest superhero. Erica Durance, Allison Mack, Justin Hartley, Cassidy Freeman, John Glover, Annette O’Toole and John Schneider also star. Kevin Fair directed “Finale Part 1,” which was written by Al Septien & Turi Meyer (#3X6022) and Greg Beeman directed “Finale Part 2,” written by Brian Peterson & Kelly Souders (#3X6021).

The final, two-part episode, appropriately titled “Finale,” airs at 8 p.m. ET/PT May 13 on The CW.

    Actually, there was footage in that Lex trailer from a few days ago. So anyone with a screencap from that had the first photo.

    I vaguely recall that second image being a callback to a flashforward or somesuch from a verrrrry early episode of the show.

    That glove…. O.J. was telling the truth

    Smallville “wraps up a decade-long story following one’s man’s journey to becoming the world’s greatest superhero”. Which is, of course, the story of Lex as Darkseid.

  • Kevin

    Yup. President Lex as depicted in “Hourglass” in season 1 and “Armageddon” in season 7.

  • Jacob

    Lex will not be Darkseid.
