With Smallville coming to an end, the producers are pulling out all the stops and fast-tracking the long awaited relationship of Lois and Clark. As Executive Producer Brian Peterson reveals, fans can expect the iconic couple to take the next step in their relationship and solidify their future together with Clark proposing to Lois “within the next three episodes.”
Executive Producer Kelly Souders adds:
"The ring will come out of the pocket. It's something that we've always wanted to do. Obviously we work really closely with DC Comics and they have been fantastic this year about letting us kind of push things because it's the end and it's now or never. We always wanted to get the Lois and Clark relationship to that next level in the Smallville story."
Of course, with a proposal coming so soon within the final season of Smallville, it begs the question whether an engagement is the furthest that this relationship will progress in the series, or if we’ll eventually see Lois walk down the aisle to become Mrs. Lois Lane (as if Lois would ever change her name). Unfortunately, while Peterson was happy to reveal the impending proposal, he’s being tight-lipped about a possible wedding day.
"We can't really talk about a wedding, but that relationship is definitely progressing."
Considering that “we can’t really talk about a wedding” is a pretty good indicator of their plans, one can only speculate what the marriage of Lois & Clark would entail. In the franchises mythos, Lois and Clark have been married both in a typical human ceremony, but also in a Kryptonian wedding ceremony at the Fortress of Solitude. Since Jor-El hasn’t exactly been the biggest proponent of Clark’s extracurricular actives, perhaps a traditional wedding would be the best for everyone. Not to mention safer.
With the Darkseid storyline beginning to take shape and the Darkseid Elite just now forming, one has to wonder how Lois and Clark’s engagement will play into the villain’s storyline. Will the visitor from Apokolips use Clark’s feelings for Lois against him or go the typical route and just take her hostage?
Whatever happens, it will most certainly propel Clark into finally becoming the greatest hero the world has ever seen… with the wardrobe to match.
Smallville airs Fridays @8pm, on The CW
