In the 5th episode of season 9 "Idol", these two spray paint an "S" on the roof of a badguy's limo, to catch the attention of their idol, the Blur.
Later, the duo visit Watchtower and see all of the high-tech gear that Chloe has within, Jayna asks Chloe if she's actually met the Blur, and if she is the Blur's sidekick. Chloe tells them that Watchtower provides support to all of the heroes of Metropolis. Jayna wants to tweet her "group" about what she has seen, and Chloe warns that if she says one word to anyone about it, any trace of her virtual existence will be evaporated. Chloe starts trying new things, like carrying a gun.

Smallville Season 9 Trailer
This is the most recent trailer for Season 9 of Smallville.
Instead of Roy Harper, Jr.’s version, “Smallville” will pick up the female Speedy. “It’s the newest version of Speedy,” Peterson explained. “Her name is Mia Dearden.” Like the comic, the show will present her along with the dark past, including being HIV positive. “She has a sordid past and crosses paths with Oliver [Green Arrow] in some shady places,” Executive Producer Kelly Souders added. “But he gives her hope.”
Justice Society (yesterdays version of a Justice League, are in their 40s and come out of retirement to see how todays modern Justice League operates.
Justice Society of America: a team that preceded the Justice League by a generation.
The Justice Society will be heroes that come out of retirement to see how the current generation operates. The Justice Society returns to give these screwed up guys of the next generation a needed smack-down, Geoff Johns says. The characters appearing are not yet known and will rely on legal clearances, but Johns says the characters will be in their 40's and Jay Garrick (golden-age Flash) and Alan Scott (golden-age Green Lantern) will not be appearing. The "Smallville" version of the Justice Society is most likely a smaller number of members, than their comic book counterparts, just like Smallville's Justice League.
Major Zod and a platoon of troops from the Kandor of the past arrive in Metropolis
Major Zod arrives in Smallville with a legion of troops from Kandor of the past, he and his troops are without their Kryptonian superpowers. Major Zod is between 20 and 30, described as handsome, charmer, master of seduction, and very intelligent.
Mason is probably a human identity for Major Zod.
Faora and Basqat will be among the Kryptonian cronies we'll see with Zod.
Last season revealed that Faora is the wife of Zod.
Fiona, described as "sexy and hot". She wears a faded military jacket and turns against Major Zod (Callum Blue), her leader. Together with another soldier named "Basqat" she imprisons Major Zod.
Which is probably why Zod is talking like he is in the Comic Con trailer.
As season 9 progresses, the venomous side of Zod will develop, do to a series of betrayals by the other Smallville characters.
And about the scene used for casting him:
- The scene takes place on the Queen Industries jet, and involves Mason with Tess.
- Tess is surprised by Mason's voice, who asks her if she's "All work and no play?"
- Tess tells Mason that she hoped he would have mastered more than a lexicon of cliches by now. He tells Tess she can stand down, because "it's me," and Tess says that "precisely who 'you' are is a little nebulous at the moment." Mason reminds her that it`s "exactly the way you like it." He then keeps trying to find ways to try to seduce her.
- It sounds like Tess might "betray" Mason. In a later scene, Tess returns to the Luthor Mansion to find him inside, waiting. He mentions that she "turned on him" but he "survived it," and then works on psychoanalyzing Tess yet again.
- He tells Tess "I trusted you!" and tells her that he was the one shot she had at a fairy tale ending. She pulls a gun on him, and reminds him "You still need me." He realizes she's right.
Alia (Monique Ganderton)
Alia, a "beautiful, sexy femme fatale assassin with mysteriously intimate ties to Clark and Krypton.
She's an expert fighter, especially with throwing star and a sword. Martial arts background.
Zombies attack Metropolis
Lois wakes up a zombie
Tess Mercer as a zombie
In episode three, called "Rabid", Lois and Clark are "in the trenches fighting zombies," Peterson reveals. "And when they catch their breath from fighting zombies, [romantic] sparks will fly."
The episode is about a virus infecting Metropolis that turns people into zombies. Both Tess and Lois are infected by the plague. Dr. Coats (Cameron Bancroft), a virologist who is working on the zombie plague. Oliver burns the current Green Arrow costume in this episode.
Mild-mannered reporter has taken over some of Clark's duties at the Daily Planet.
But he is transformed into a cybornetic organism, and has a mysterious benefactor.
Could that benefactor be Lex Luthor? This season will make it obvious that Lex Luthor is still alive, but he is hiding in the shadows during much of this season.
These are pics, of Metallo, that I lifted off of the most recent Season 9 trailer.
