The young man of steel is embracing his Kryptonian side by accepting his duty to protect people without being seen.
There was a new trailer of "Smallville" being aired during the series premiere of "The Vampire Diaries". The trailer, although short, gives a brief glimpse of Clark in his Superman suit watching over everyone in the city from the high tower. It also highlights on how people never see him in person but Lois can sense his presence.
Entering its ninth season, "Smallville" will come back to the TV screen on September 25 with episode "Savior". Clark tells Jor-El he's ready to start his training, but Jor-El sends him back to Metropolis to cut ties with Lois before he can begin. Chloe is shocked when Lois suddenly reappears after having been missing for weeks, but Lois has no recollection of vanishing into thin air with the Legion ring.
While investigating a monorail crash, Lois meets John Corben (guest star Brian Austin Green), a new reporter at The Daily Planet, with a negative attitude toward the Red-Blue Blur. Chloe begs Clark to use the Legion ring to go back in time to save Jimmy, but he refuses, driving a wedge into their friendship. Meanwhile, Oliver continues down a dark road, and Zod arrives at the Luthor mansion.
