Who Will Die on the Smallville Season Finale?

at . Comments

Smallville has been renewed for a 10th season.

But this good news comes with a caveat: Not all characters will return for it.

Producers have told Michael Ausiello that a major cast member will be killed off on the May 14 season finale. Who is especially vulnerable? Let's take a look at a few of the potential victims...

Chloe: There's a lot of Chloe ahead this spring. But Allison Mack doesn’t have a contract for next season. That's a major red flag. Also, her character doesn't exist in the DC Comics universe? She'd be easy to eliminate in that regard.

Lana: Indeed, Kristin Kreuk was rumored to be on on the Smallville set last month.

Perry: We know he's returning this season. But might he not stick around for long?

Martha: See above. Replace "he" with "she."

Oliver: Would be as shocking a death as that of Jimmy Olsen last year. But just because it's unexpected, doesn't mean it's impossible? Need proof? See Olsen, Jimmy.

Tess: Michael Rosenbaum is unlikely to return as Lex because he's attached to a new show. That doesn't bode well for his character's placeholder.

Zod: Probably the strongest odds. After all, he's this season's major villain - and there's only one month remaining in the season.

On an Escape

Clark and Lois are safe. All other Smallville characters? They are fair game for the Grim Reaper.
