"Nrama: What was it like for you all, just watching the show, to revisit Smallville High. Were there certain story beats that it was very important for you to include in the episode?
Peterson: I think the first one without question was the Lana (Kristin Kreuk) meet. Because it’s probably the minute that we all fell in love with Clark Kent. Because we saw his struggle that would launch the whole series... There are—we can’t tell you how many things got whittled off the list, sadly. And then, because it’s the two hundredth, we wanted to look back really at the pilot and the one hundredth, because those were such big benchmarks. And that’s why we just focused on those and chose those.
Nrama: What about people from the original cast, like Michael Rosenbaum (Lex Luthor) and Kristin Kreuk?
Souders: We would love for them to be back.
Peterson: We would love for them to be back. The door is wide open, so. If any of you have any pull, you let us know.
Souders: We loved writing for both of them. They were just such great characters, so we would love that chance again.
Nrama: Do you have any sort of, if the door got open enough for Michael or Kristin to walk through, do you have sort of stories in your head that you can plug them into?
Souders: Oh yeah. Probably write that script in about two days.
Peterson: Oh god.
Souders: Yes we do. We have. You know obviously all of these characters sit in our heads year round. So we know we have story ideas and places that we’d like to take them. They’re always sitting right there waiting for something to happen.
Nrama: To follow up on that question, is there a contingency plan on how to end the characters if this is the final season and you can’t get the actors back?
A new preview clip for Smallville's "Homecoming" episode contains a Lana Lang reference.
As Lois looks for her name tag during Smallville's High School Reunion, she finds Lana Lang's name tag instead. She holds it up and says, "Lang...wow old flames. *holds up name tag for Clark to see* I should have known this would happen"
In another interview, this time from examiner.com, the current producers of Smallville were onced again asked about the possibility of Kristin Kreuk returning to "Smallville"...
"'Smallville' turns 200 by paying respect to those who made it great...
The great question on many fans' minds is will you get to see some of the beloved past characters again, in present day, brought back for new episodes as the series comes to an end. Peterson and Souders reiterated that if all of the stars align, "the door is wide open" for many of them, especially Kristin Kreuk and Michael Rosenbaum. They joked that if any of us have any pull, now would be the time to use it. But regardless, Peterson and Souders do have plans to wrap up their story lines."
A Lana Lang (Kristin Kreuk) flashback is featured in "Smallville's" new trailer.
The Lana Lang part begins around the 11 sec mark and ends at the 17 mark...If you are NOT a fan of Lois, Clark/Lois, or everything else about this current show, then I suggest avoiding watching the trailer and the episode ;)
For those who don't care to watch the trailer: The Lana clip used was of Lana asking Clark "So what are you, man or 'Superman'? from the pilot episode.
I guess this is the Lana flashback scene that was being hyped...
In an interview by theflickcast.com 'Smallville' producers, Brian Peterson & Kelly Sounders, were asked of the possibility of Kristin Kreuk coming back...
FC: I know a lot of people miss Lana Lang, any word on if Kristin Kreuk be coming back?
BP: We would love to have Kristin back but like a lot of the other actors she’s very busy. So we have some thoughts, the door’s open, we would love to have her back. Right now, that hasn’t happened or worked out. But we want her back, we love her, we love Kristin.
*I REALLY miss Lana, but I personally wouldn't want her back on this show. I have a feeling most of her fans, like myself have moved on and distanced themselves from this current version of SV. As Kristin Kreuk once said, "The show's very different, and Lana -- it seems like she comes from a different "Smallville" time."
