SMALLVILLE “Odyssey” (S8E01)

Smallville - Tom Welling as Clark Kent and Justin Hartley as Oliver Queen

Check out some pictures from SMALLVILLE‘s Season 8 premiere episode, “Odyssey” airing on Thursday, September 18, at 8pm on The CW.

After hearing what the Smallville cast and crew had to say about the new season at Comic Con, I am so excited for what is coming up. The addition of Doomsday sounds great, although he doesn’t appear until the second episode. We do meet Tess Mercer, Lex’s “replacement,” in the first episode. I’m curious to see how she’s going to fill the gap left by Lex Luthor. Honestly, I don’t think anybody can replace Lex, but hopefully she’ll be good in her own right.
