smallville season 10 ambush General Lane Returns in Smallville Season 10 Ambush

This week, Thanksgiving comes early to Smallville. After surviving a meteor worshiping cult, Lois and Clark are back to reveling in their open and honest relationship and are ready for a delicious holiday feast. Of course, as it has been written, no Thanksgiving is complete without the rugged Michael Ironside.

Fortunately, that stipulation has been fulfilled as General Lane makes his triumphant return to Smallville and brings along Lois’ long-lost, thieving sister Lucy. This family reunion is short-lived as the Vigilante Registration Act and an assassination attempt on the General serves to really put a damper on the Thanksgiving spirit – if that is an actual thing.

Of course, even with the General’s life at risk, that’s not going to stop him from grilling his lovely daughter’s significant other. With spotlight in tow and years of interrogation techniques under his belt, nothing will stop the General from finding out what Clark’s true intentions are with his daughter. Unfortunately, the inquisition doesn’t stop there, as General Lane is dead-set on learning Clark’s deepest, darkest secret.

Building upon this season’s Darkseid storyline, the Vigilante Registration Act is the result of Glorious Godfrey’s influential powers to build up the public’s resentment of caped crusaders. Something that will certainly help Darkseid in his eventual battle with Clark. Additionally, while Michael Ironside is a welcomed addition to any series, this only begins the Lane family storyline. Next week, Teri Hatcher appears in VHS form as Lois’ mother and causes her to pay a visit to father of the year, Jor-El. Not only that, but the Darkseid Elite begins to form with Granny Goodness, Glorious Godfry and Desaad.


The General (guest star Michael Ironside) and Lucy Lane (Peyton List) decide to drop in on Lois (Erica Durance) and Clark (Tom Welling) for a surprise Thanksgiving dinner.  Clark and the General get off to a rocky start after Lois’ father bashes the superheroes and tells Clark he is trying to pass a vigilante registration law. Meanwhile, in an effort to stop the vigilante registration act from being passed, Rick Flagg (guest star Ted Whittall) lies to Lucy in order to lure Clark away from the farm long enough for him to assassinate the General. Lois is torn between making her father proud and her love for Clark.

  1. Can we please get a Splinter Cell movie from Ironside?!?!

  2. Lois meets Jor-El and Lara in the fortress!

    I really hope they get Michael Ironside to voice Darkseid.

    And Dean Cain might be coming back!

  3. If this episode is anywhere on par with last weeks… then i am there. That episode rocked.

    • yeah

  4. While this may be a crude comment, I’m going for it anyway.
    Lois and Lucy Lane sandwich. That is all.

    • HAHAHA. Maybe Clark will suggest that DSB.

  5. This episode looks promising. I’m liking all the past guests this season :D

  6. who watches smallville anymore

    • 2.95 million people… yeah :P

      pretty cool show

    • u dont watch it??????????? smallville is awesome =)

  7. Season 10 is shaping up to be Smallville’s best, there is only one thing wrong and that is NO FLIGHT or THE SUIT yet, The Blur needs to be retired it’s time for Clark to become Superman. Looking forward to the battle with Darkseid, hope they make a 2 hour movie episode. Would be one heck of a way to end the series, and a Cameo from Michael Rosenbaum would be nice.

    • Look at it this way; Smallville is the story of Clark before he’s Superman.

      Example: That 70′s Show ended with a New Year’s party for the coming 1980. The show ended with “5, 4, 3, 2, 1″. They never entered the 80′s because it was That “70′s” Show.

      I think him putting on the suit should be the final moment of Smallville :)


  9. OMG. It looks like the Clark/Lois relationship is going to get the Clana treatment – totally contrived plotlines to cause totally contrived angst that the Smallville writers seem to love so much. So much for the epic Clark/Lois love story. Looks like an episode to avoid if you ask me.

  10. Guys, vote for clois couple in this site:

    And… Lane family + clois + plot of Vigilante Registration Act + plote of General Lane’s killer = good episode :).

  11. Since the election is now over, I can watch this series and not be affected by the political mumbo-jumbo.

    Ironsides is King!

  12. Sounds like the writers are borrowing from Marvels Civil War story line. Might be interesting to see.
