Allison Mack Returning For ‘Smallville’ Series Finale

Published 3 years ago by , Updated June 27th, 2013 at 3:12 pm,

The prayers of Smallville fans wanting to see more than five episodes with Chloe Sullivan (Allison Mack) have been answered, as the fan-favorite character will be returning for one more episode this season – the Smallville series finale.

Even though Allison Mack’s five episode commitment for this season ended with The Hangover inspired episode “Fortune,” Chloe Sullivan marrying Oliver Queen (Justin Hartley) and moving away to Star City just didn’t seem like the appropriate send off for such a beloved character. Fortunately, Chloe will be making her return to Metropolis one last time, to witness the transformation of Clark Kent (Tom Welling) into Superman.

While both Warner Bros. and The CW have not confirmed Mack’s involvement in the series’ finale episode – which will also see the return of Michael Rosenbaum as Lex Luthor – TV Line is reporting that a “well-placed source” told them that Allison Mack is currently on set for the filming of the Smallville series finale and that she ”will be a part of the grand send-off.

From the beginning, Chloe has been Clark’s proverbial sidekick – always helping him out when in need and making sure that his Kryptonian secret remains, well, secret. When it was announced that Mack would only be reprising the role Chloe for five episodes in Smallville season 10, fans were rightfully upset.

Despite Chloe’s recent episodic involvement falling on this season’s parody episodes (“Collateral” = The Matrix and “Fortune” = The Hangover), it was still nice to see her return, and, more than anything, it showed that her involvement in the series – even if the episodes weren’t the best – still served to elevate the overall entertainment value of the 10-year television drama.

Now that Chloe will be returning for the Smallville series finale, the character will have a chance to receive a better ending. Although, one has to wonder whether the ending she might receive – now that she’s involved in the series finale – might be, well, final as in: dead.

Like many fans, I would hate to see that fate come to Chloe, but given the fact that Darkseid looks to be behind Lex Luthor’s impending return and considering that it’s the series finale, the producers might decide to go right at the heartstrings of every fan watching. Since very little information has been released about the Smallville series finale, this is pure speculation.

  1. I know it will be announce today on this site but John Schneider is also returning for the finale and more people probably are Annette and Michael McKean. I hope to see Jimmy’o in the finale.

    • I heard that Annette might return, but Papa Kent too? Hooray!

  2. Well i hope we will see some Justice League heroes one last time
    before the series is over – cause i will be upset then,

  3. Let’s get right to the point! Lex and Clark will meet again so I would like to hear Clark say “the real Lex” because this would show he’s not a clone! We need to extend this show some how into a movie or another T.V. show called something else? Tom Welling be a real hero and save this show!

  4. I totally agree with you, as i’ve mentioned before that they should have
    another 2-hour movie special slated for summer or fall season, infact i wouldn’t mind at all if they could even make a 6 hour mini series with Superman (Tom Welling) & all the members of The Justice League of America, i would watch it for sure!

  5. I’m so excited to see the final handfull of episodes but sad too as that will be it.

    I sure hope they don’t kill Chloe off and I’m hoping we get to see all the past series regulars even Lana :-)

    Wish Tom Welling would continue on as Superman some how but it will never happen and that just makes me so very very sad. Next to Chris Reeves he’s the best Superman/Clark Kent. My opinion of course.

    • According to IMDB Lana and Pete will be in the finale

      • I dont think so sorry to say but lana had a good send off in the 8th season and ross the boss could never get over c.k. secret it why he left. it would be kind of nice

  6. i love this show and i love Chloe sad the show will end but i do have all the season on dvd.

  7. I have all the DVD’s sets too so far, but will trade it in when the complete Smallville TV series is made in a collectible set with hours of extras, including never before seen out takes, alternate endings etc. maybe a mini smallville book / comicbook & including 12 colorful postcards of the cast of smallville, that be so cool!

  8. good decision folks. Allison Mack as Chloe Sullivan is one of the most important person in Clark’s life removing her in the finale is not justifiable. i love chloe sullivan there protective and a loyal friend. in our life we had one trusted friend.

  9. i’m so sad that smallville is ending. and i’m tired of series ending with the expected murder\suicide\annihilation of city, country, or world. can’t we just have a logical ending with things following their backstory. like maybe we get to actually see clark and lois get married with the parents of the groom in attendance and the general giving lois away, mr. and mrs. green arrow standing up with them. then when the minister asks if anyone opposes the marriage, lex and lionel bust thru the doors, green arrow joins them. the kent\luthor combo kid joins the fray and at the end, the kents and luthors are dead. the combo kid and chloe are mortally wounded giving their lives to protect clark. emil fixes green arrow. and clark rips off his tux, grabs lois and flies off into the sunset, with a cloud of black dust swirling around the bodies of the luthors. what do y’all think about that/.

    • i have to say that would be a disappointing ending for me.

  10. I am sad to see such a great, original series come to an end, but that’s how it is with all good things! Is there a chance for a Justice League series in the future, as we have been introduced to the various characters and it would be interesting to follow their exploits as well?

  11. This is one show i could never tire of, i think the cw is making a big mistake in cancelling it. they need to get more indepth into how he becomes superman he was supposed 2 spend 12 years training before he dawned his suit. theyre trying 2 jam pack way 2 much of supermans career into 2 short of series. 10 years just isnt enough time

  12. I totally agree with you on this, with just a few more episodes left- it
    now seems like their running out of time fast, hope they really consider
    making a special Superman TV movie based on life after smallville or even
    a special 6 episode mini-series would be cool with me too.

  13. Well, I don’t dislike Chloe like I did Lana but my favorite will always be Lois. I thought Lana’s time in season 8, I think it was 8, was really pointless whereas Chloe’s return was more beautifully done. I don’t mind her being in the finale too as long as the ORIGINAL LEX is back. I still wouldn’t mind rubbing it in Lana’s face about Clark and Lois though. (Evil laugh)>;)
