As seen in this exclusive image from the Season 10 premiere of The CW’s ‘Smallville,’ a piece of Clark’s destiny – his true love, Lois – is in danger of going up in flames when someone lashes her to a cornfield crucifix.
The image harkens back to the very first season of ‘Smallville,’ when local boy Jeremy Creek – and then far-from-local boy Clark himself – got “hung up” by some overzealous pranksters.
Take a closer look (as I did, ahem), then read on….
What’s interesting to note is the slightly different mood to this “crucifixion” image versus the one that hit EW.com on Friday. There, Lois appeared distraught, her mane matted by fear/dread; here, she almost seems ascendant.
Maybe a super friend is just out of frame, heroically carrying her to safety? (I’m just spitballing, of course.) Whatever the case, I’m pretty sure my MacBook Pro here just got new desktop wallpaper.
You all have weeks to speculate on just how Lois’ apparent predicament plays into the season premiere, which is titled “Lazarus.” ‘Smallville’ returns for its final run on Friday, September 24, at 8/7c. Be there.
