As tension builds in the final season of Smallville, Darkseid continues to take hold of Metropolis. In the February 4th episode of the final season, entitled “Beacon,” the Vigilante Registration Act sets its sights on the illusive superhero known simply as “The Blur.”
With the residents of Metropolis divided, two groups will rise to the top – those that support The Blur and those that support the Vigilante Registration Act. As these two groups take the street with the own perspective rallies, Clark finds himself unsure about his future.
In order to show Clark that the world does, in fact, need a superhero, his “friends” (purposefully generic) will show him a collection of videos from the internet, in which people will passionately explain what The Blur means to them. This, as you may have guessed, is where the contest therein lies.
In attempt to provide fans of the series with a chance of appearing in the final season of Smallville, The CW is asking viewers to submit videos of themselves expressing what The Blur means to them, with the winning video(s) making it in the episode.
While the premise my sound a little campy, the chance of appearing in an episode of Smallville will certainly have fans coming out in droves. Of course, only the best will make it past the team of reviewers that The CW will be using. So, if you plan on entering, make sure to write out what you want to say in advance, memorize it… and then give the best performance of your life.
Before you ask, it's open to US residents only. Sorry!
Do you believe in heroes? If so, The CW’s hit series Smallville (Fridays, 8:00–9:00 p.m. ET/PT) wants to hear from you. Fans of Smallville, from Warner Bros. Television, will have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to appear in an upcoming episode of the 10th and final season via the “Smallville:” Believe in Heroes Challenge", a 10-day promotion running from Friday, December 10—Monday, December 20, on CWTV.com.
- In the episode “Beacon,” to be broadcast on Friday, February 4, Clark (series star Tom Welling) is at an emotional crossroads, with Metropolis divided by a clash between supporters of the government’s Vigilante Registration Act and opposing rallies to generate support for indispensable heroes like The Blur.
- Clark’s friends assure him that he is, indeed, making a difference in his crime-fighting role as The Blur, and to prove their point, they show him videos from the Internet in which ordinary citizens express what The Blur means to them, what it means to be a hero – and what it means to have heroes and believe in them. One of these videos could be yours!
- And this is where Smallville fans come in!
Here’s how it works:
- Beginning Friday, December 10, at 11:00 a.m. Pacific Time, and continuing through Monday, December 20, at 11:00 a.m. Pacific Time, Smallville fans can submit their own video testimonial as one of these hopeful citizens by uploading videos to The CW’s official website at http://www.cwtv.com/smallville
- In these videos, viewers – speaking in character as impassioned citizens of Metropolis and around the world, fighting for the rights of their heroes – can express what The Blur means to them and talk about why they believe in these super heroes.
- “Smallville” producers and the CWTV.com team will review the submissions and select a number of the user-submitted videos for broadcast as the testimonials that Clark watches during the “Beacon” episode airing Friday, February 4 (8:00–9:00 p.m. ET/PT) on The CW.
