'Smallville' Preview: A Force Will Rise In 'Icarus'

Smallville: "Icarus" Preview

As the battle between Clark and Darkseid grows nearer, Smallville fans are waiting to see Clark Kent take the final steps toward fulfilling his destiny. Even though that triumphant transformation isn’t likely to happen to until later on in season 10’s final 12 episodes, the producers are making sure that this heroic journey is as action-packed as ever.

With Darkseid growing more powerful with each passing episode, the creation of the Darkseid Elite and the introduction of Colonel Slade (and his semi-transformation into Deathstroke), the malevolent forces reach their peak in this week’s episode of Smallville, titled “Icarus”.

After the residents of Metropolis are beginning to be taken over by Darkseid’s influence and Colonel Slade kidnaps Lois Lane, Clark knows that he cannot undertake this heroic endeavor on his own. With that, Clark must turn to help from some of his superpowered friends. In this case, those friends include Green Arrow, Stargirl, Hawkman and perhaps some other well-known DC icons.

In the clips below, you’ll catch glimpses of what awaits fans in this episode, including the formation of the episode's superhero team; Oliver Queen being overcome by citizens influenced by Darkseid; Clark’s proposal to Lois; and Colonel Slade taking his final steps to truly become Deathstroke.

Of course, glimpses just aren’t enough to hold one over until Friday. That said, there’s also an extended look at Lois confronting Colonel Slade. In the clip, Lois ends up with Slade pressing a gun against her forehead, an act that results in her kidnapping and makes up one of the three majors plot lines contained within this week’s episode.

As promised, this week’s episode contains Clark’s proposal to Lois. For an in-depth look at Lois and Clark’s engagement and the subsequent superhero-filled engagement party that follows, take a look at our complimentary piece ‘Smallville’ First Look: Clark’s Superhero Proposal To Lois.


The VRA is in full effect and things take an unfortunate turn of events after the Green Arrow (Justin Hartley) tries to stop a mugging but is attacked by citizens for being a super hero.  Clark (Tom Welling) discovers that the civilians who attacked Oliver were all marked with a darkness tattoo.  Carter Hall (guest star Michael Shanks) and Star Girl (guest star Britt Irvin) return to help Clark deal with Slade's (guest star Michael Hogan) re-emergence after he kidnaps Lois (Erica Durance).
