"Smallville" To Pull a Marissa?
Sweeps months (November, February and May) have become very dangerous on broadcast TV. This May it won't be any different as The CW gets ready to off a beloved face on its veteran series "Smallville."
The supposedly shocking storyline development was of course "leaked" to the media as E! Online reported that a fan favorite will be killed off in the sixth season finale of "Smallville" entitled "Phantom," which is scheduled to air Thursday, May 17.
According to the website, one of the major stars - Tom Welling, Michael Rosenbaum, Allison Mack or Kristin Kreuk - will see their character meet an untimely end in a shocking plot twist.
Obviously, there is no drama without Clark and Lex, Now if Lana were to get killed off the writers would upset some die hard fans as such twist would go against the series of comics the drama was based upon.
That means Allison Mack's Chloe Sullivan, most definitely a fan favorite, may be the one to byte the dust in the episode as the character had only been conceived for the small screen version and, as we have recently found out, she is a meteor freak herself. And we do know what happens to those.
If that happens will the show lose steam in the seventh season and ultimately call it quits? When FOX's "The O.C." tried a shot-in-the-arm approach last year by killing off one of the core characters, Mischa Barton's Marissa Cooper, the move may have cost the teen drama millions of viewers that ultimately led to its cancellation earlier this year.
As for the official "Phantom" synopsis, Lana (Kristin Kreuk) tells Lex (Michael Rosenbaum) their marriage is over, and Clark (Tom Welling) goes after Lionel (John Glover) when he discovers the real reason Lana agreed to marry Lex.
