SPOILERS: Smallville - Get Ready For Conner Kent
TVline has broken the story that Alexander Luthor, whose proved impervious to a needle penetrating it on last week's episode, will be revealed to be Conner Kent, made up of the DNA of both Lex Luthor and Clark Kent.
Here's what Michael Ausiello writes, "As foreshadowed in the final seconds of Friday’s episode (as well as a certain AA Asterisk Quiz), Luthor clone Alexander (played by Lucas Gabreel) is actually… Conner frakkin’ Kent! Although I can’t say when exactly his secret identity will be revealed, I can confirm (via the exclusive photo above) that an upcoming episode contains a not-too-subtle nod to the character’s super-powered lineage. (Turns out Conner is something of a Blur fanboy.)
“Conner’s journey is manipulated by a master,” showrunners Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders reveal exclusively to TVLine. “Luckily, someone knows more about Conner’s life than he does. But he should be wary of strangers bearing gifts.”
What are your thoughts on this development (which this Voices From Krypton editor had suggested in some conjecture of the weekend)? Sound off below.
