As Smallville rushes toward its final episode, many of the characters we loved (or loved to hate) over the previous nine seasons are returning, and the next episode has become a reunion of sorts, bringing back Martha Kent (Annette O'Toole), Lionel Luthor (John Glover) and Chloe (Allison Mack).
Here's how The CW describes the Feb. 4 episode [spoilers ahead]:
Clark (Tom Welling) is surprised to see Martha (Annette O'Toole) on the news speaking at a pro-vigilante rally. However, surprise quickly turns to horror when he and Lois (Erica Durance) watch as Martha gets shot on national television.
Meanwhile, Lionel (John Glover) reveals himself to the world and reclaims LuthorCorp from Tess (Cassidy Freeman) and Oliver (Justin Hartley). Lois and Chloe (Allison Mack) decide to cheer Clark up by showing him videos from thousands of vigilante supporters professing their support for The Blur. Videos were created and submitted by actual "Smallville" fans. Mike Rohl directed the episode written by Don Whitehead & Holly Henderson.
