Question: Please give us a hint about the special guest that will appear in the season finale of Smallville and then return next season! --Jorge
Ausiello: I'll give you two: He shows up in the final scene and he's going to cause big problems next season.

Question: How about you give us another clue as to who is dying in the Smallville season finale? --Kendall
Ausiello: I've said all I'm going to say on the subject. I lied, here's one final hint: I can confirm that there is a twist, but it doesn't involve anyone coming back to life. Okay, now I'm done.

Erica Durance Interview

Now that "Stiletto" has kicked up her heels and gotten some good phone from the Blur, the CW's Smallville (Thursdays at 8 pm/ET) is just three weeks from its Season 8 finale. Here in Part 2 of our Q&A, Erica Durance shares a glimpse at the season-ender, in which Clark and Doomsday will go toe-to-toe (or at least cotton windbreaker-to-bony protrusions)

TVGuide.com: Before we tease the season finale, I want to rewind a bit and talk about the episode "Hex." To accurately play Lois-as-Chloe, did you work with Allison Mack, or did you study her mannerisms from afar? The result was pretty spot-on.
Erica Durance: Thank you for that. I was duly nervous to do that because of how good Allison is, and also because I know that the fans love the Chloe character. So I really wanted to make sure that I gave it my best effort. I did two things: I studied a lot of Allison's episodes, from this year specifically. And then, and this was really lovely, she would run over and…

Flo in Los Angeles: Can you give more scoop on the Smallville finale death?
Just that there was a consensus in the comments section of our recent Smallville item about which character is dying, and it was not correct. That's all you'll get on that matter, but we will tease that executive producers Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders officially confirmed the return of Tom Welling and Erica Durance, so count them safe. Speaking of the finale, Cassidy Freeman says Tess Mercer is on the hunt for Davis, "Because I want Clark to accept the fact that he is Superman, and I don't think he can do that until he fights Doomsday." Throw down!

Will Chloe Survive?

Smallville has taken a dark turn this season, especially with the introduction of Doomsday (Sam Witwer), who is the only DC villain able to kill Superman. That would seem like a rough break for Tom Welling, except that Clark Kent is not one of the two characters kicking the bucket in the season finale.

Fellow fan favorite Chloe Suliivan (Allison Mack), on the other hand, has been considered very much in the line of fire, especially since producers tell us next season's stories line up closely with the DC mythology—the same Superman mythology that does not include Chloe Sullivan.

However, there's hope on the horizon! Executive producers Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders teased some upcoming storylines for Chloe that could land her in the Watchtower next season, instead of a grave.

That's not the case for two other characters on Smallville who will be saying goodbye for good, and Brian teases there may actually be a third death. Plus, find out why Lois (Erica Durance) and Clark …

Latest from TV Guide

The fans of Smallville's Lois and Clark are dying for a "Clois" scoop. Please tell us something wonderful cough-kiss-cough happens in the finale? — Heinzy
MATT: Yet again you twist my arm and make me Q&A Erica Durance. Now while she was thoroughly handcuffed as to what she could say about the finale, she had plenty to share about this week's episode, "Stiletto." As Lois lands her first one-on-one with the mysterious Red-Blue Blur, Erica says, "What's lovely is you get to see Clark see Lois in a totally different light —totally smitten and sweet, with all of her barriers down — and that is really romantic." As a result, "Clark becomes closer to Lois, because he gets to see this honest and generous side of her. I was pretty thrilled about it.

Louis Febre on Beast

Thanks to marenh for the following.

Louis Febre who scores the show twittered today that "Beast is d-a-r-k."

1) The dialogue is incredibly creepy, I'm sure the score will match and exceed it.

2) Ah! Good question. Creepy, in a deep, unsettling sort of way that goes beyond the obvious!
Dark really is a good description.

Latest from TV Guide

To help pass the time until Smallville returns on April 23 with the final four episodes of the season, executive producer Kelly Souders answered questions from the CW series' superfans here at TVGuide.com. Read on to see what Souders had to share about Clark's destiny, Lois' future, Chloe's crises, a surprising pairing and much more.

Clark can fly but simply hasn't finalized it yet, in my opinion. When will we see him mastering this ability? — Tombstone25
Kelly Souders: Clark Kent won't really become Superman until he takes to the skies. We all have our stumbling blocks; his are just airborne. Until he can fully embrace his double-life, he'll have a hard time getting off the ground. But, we will say, his "leaps" are getting closer and closer to the real thing.

Are there plans to explore more of Lois' past in future episodes? Because we Lois fans are dying to learn more about her. And if she and Clark don't kiss soon, we might go just a lit…
