'Smallville' Season 10 'Abandoned' Spoilers Discussion

Christine Welles as Granny Goodness

For Smallville fans who have been wondering when this action-packed final season will being to slow down, the answer appears to be... not anytime soon.

While last week’s episode had Lois’s absentee family members, General Lane and Lucy Lane returning, there’s no doubt that fans of the series will be waiting with bated breath to see the Darkseid Elite finally coming together.

In the season 9 finale of Smallville, we caught a glimpse of Granny Goodness outside of Tess Mercer’s hospital room, but this iconic character has since been laying low in the series mythos. Fortunately, Granny Goodness makes her triumphant return in “Abandoned.”

Additionally, it appears that the Smallville producers dipped their hand into the DC archives once again, but this time they’re bringing out one of the Female Furies, Mad Harriet (played by Lindsay Hartley - wife of Justin "Green Arrow" Hartley).

Also making her Smallville premiere, albeit through video, is Teri Hatcher as Lois’ mom. If there’s only one worry to be had with this episode, it would be this. As fans now know, something that Lois’ mom tells her results in Lois running to Jor-El. Considering Jor-El doesn’t exactly treat his own son that well, there’s no doubt that Lois is probably going to regret her journey to the fortress.

With Granny Goodness, Glorious Godfrey and Desaad coming together, let’s hope that Darkseid’s plan begins to take shape soon.


Lois (Erica Durance) finds a video made for her by her mother, Ella Lane (Hatcher), before she died. After watching the tape, Lois makes a drastic decision about her relationship with Clark (Tom Welling) that takes her to the Fortress, where she comes face to face with Jor-El and Lara. Meanwhile, Tess has a nightmare involving herself as a child and a music box. Upon awakening, she finds the music box in Luthor mansion and sets out to find out who planted it there. Clark accompanies her to an orphanage run by Granny Goodness (guest star Christine Willes) who may not have the young girls’ best intentions in mind. One of the young women living there, Harriet (guest star Hartley), finds Clark snooping around and decides to take matters into her own very sharp hands.

If you’re posting comments here, assume that anyone in the conversation has seen the episode – if you haven’t seen the episode, I would recommend you don’t read these comments here until you have. You’ve been warned.
