Both Lana and Lex will be back semi regularly for about 8 episodes each. They will not be full time.Originally Posted by PWS;3004642;
Isn't James Marsters also supposed to be back as Brainiac for a couple of episodes?
Besides it is time for Clark to explode the transition of leaving childhood/high school/home behind and begin the first steps toward his destiny. That's what season 6 & 7 were doing. I truly hope the writers and producers are able to have a really satisfactory season 8 and then be done with it.
I also want to see the Legion of Super Heroes episode we were supposed to have season 7 but the writers strike screwed that up. We are also supposed to see Lori Lemuris, Kal-el's mermaid girlfriend. Lets explore more of the future Justice League.
