Two Days. Two Freakin' Days.  
I've waited ten years for this to happen. Don't let me and the rest down, Smallville. We've EARNED this.

ETA: I can get the recast of Rosenbaum. The storyline makes it necessary. We all saw this coming, especially since Rosey wasn't too anxious to come back. Superman HAS to have Lex Luthor. Period. It sucks that they couldn't talk him into it, but I saw this coming from a million miles away. It was a given with or without.

However, I am SO not down with the casting rumors going around about Ella Lane. One: someone have a blonde wig? Everything we've seen about SV!Ella makes that version a blonde. We've seen pics. Two: Annnnd they resemble each other how? Seriously? Oh, I get it. We all know how much she looks like her dad, right? *smirk* No. Just no. Sorry to the fans out there, but it just stinks of stunt casting. Not Cool.

Well, I take that back. I was doing okay until I heard about the stunt casting. F*&^ing retcon! And it's not just because it's You-Know-Who.

Well, I guess I'll have to see, I was waiting to see how Tess Mercer's character would pan out, and was doubtful but I really REALLY like her character. You just never know what side she's really on, and I like that.

I'm keeping an open mind, I totally agree that Lex is integral in the story arc, and you can't do Superman becoming who he is without Lex. It doesn't work. It's like Santa Claus without Rudolph. Just wrong.

As for Ella, IDK, I'm on the fence again, and quite honestly I sort of think her character is sort of not necessary in all of this. Maybe I'll be wrong. However overall the season looks like it's going to be great, and I hope it is.

I think Tess is another character that has things in common with canon, despite not being canon herself. She really has a great deal of Waller in her in that there's not good or evil, only shades of grey. No right or wrong, only survival of the human race at any cost. And that's what I love about her. People can talk all the noise they want; I find her a more than worthy successor to Lex. I'd like to see her fight on the boys' side, but I never want her to truly be black or white.

I hate that we won't get him back. It sucks. It sucks worse that Rosenbaum wouldn't come back just for one more season to give it the send-off that it deserves. They really didn't have any choice.

Actually, I think they're trying to wrap up Lois' issues about her past before they move her forward to be who she's finally going to become. A lot of who she is and the way she reacts to everything around her and all of her need to prove herself is wrapped up in her upbringing and the fact that her dad expected more from her than he truly should have. And the fact that that Lois didn't have a mom there to try to soften the blow. I think it may just be time to deal with it, to move her past that. That and Lois has always had such a love for her mom. I really wonder what they have planned.

That said, that's why I have an issue with the casting. And that's why the retcon irks me to no end.

I'm seriously excited to see what they do, especially since they're pulling out all the stops this season. :D

I would have been more upset it Lex hadn't come back. I'm willing to hold judgement on it till I see the final product. Maybe because i'm not so hard core in to the fandom as others i don't care too much about hair colour. Where did you hear about the casting rumors?

Oh, it's confirmed all around the 'net now. My biggest issue is that that ruins the continuity.
