General Lane Returns in 'Smallville' Season 10 'Ambush'

Peyton List as Lucy Lane and Michael Ironside as General Lane

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.
