Clark in Trouble

From there, the mid-season finale will go down on December 10. It will feature Michael Shanks as Hawkman and Allison Mack as Chloe, making her first of four episode appearances.

"It is a great cliff-hanger going into the spring run, because there are a couple of pretty big twists in that episode," executive producer Brian Peterson tells TV Guide. "Things don't go very well for our heroes. Just when Clark is on top of the world, things kind of crash down around him."
