After weeks of diverting from this season’s main antagonist, Smallville is finally returning to the Darkseid storyline.

Desaad has made his way back to Metropolis, but this time he’s not alone. Without Granny Goodness and Glorious Godfrey, Desaad has rounded up a sizable gang of minions to do his bidding.

In this case, Desaad’s bidding is to kidnap Oliver and Chloe. Now that Chloe is the head of the Suicide Squad and Clark’s closet companion, she’s the perfect person to infect with the darkness. Of course, infecting Chloe isn’t going to be as easy as it sounds.

With Oliver and Chloe captured, Clark begins to focus his attention on creating and maintaining a secret identity. In other words, he’s that much closer to becoming Superman.

Bring it, Smallville!

‘Masquerade’ Episode Description:

Chloe (Allison Mack) and Oliver (Justin Hartley) are mistaken for FBI agents investigating Desaad’s (guest star Steve Byers) recent string of murders and the pair are kidnapped by Desaad’s minions.
