    Rene isn't taking anything for granted until she sees it with her own eyes. :)

    Although, like you.. the noticable absence of Jonathan from the most recent teaser makes me suspicious that it's him. I can see Jonathan having a grabber at that big political rally, perhaps on the eve of him winning the state senate seat.. or maybe right after winning it. All speculation, of course.

    I really did want to be surprised.. but I changed my mind so I *tried* to find out who it was by asking someone I know who is probably able to find out. Unfortunately, he doesn't want to know either! He wants to be surprised. Damn! :mad: ;)

    Jonathan dying, no. Jonathan dying at the hands of Jor-El for something Clark did... YES big time...

    Maybe if Clark hadnt defied Jor-el and not come back to Smallville, those Kryptonians would have killed alot more people, including Jonathan and Lana.

    That won't happen of course, I still don't understand how they're going to explain Jor-El's words "the life of someone close to you will be exchanged, for yours" "someone you love" .. I really hope he's talking about himself. But still, thinking about it, is a parent able to kill somebody to save their son's life? I say yes.

    We know that Jonathan and Lionel will have a fight, something tragic will happen during that fight probably.

    even so, you're still pinning Clark's father's death indirectly on him. It sets up all sorts of screwed up character motivations for him and also would make him despise Jor-El...

    I agree, I'm not liking it either. Have you posted your little speculation yet at The Kingdom?

    I still have this feeling that its Chloe.

    yeah I dont believe the TWOP rumors myself. The guy isnt exactly going out on a limb by saying it's gonna be Jonathan. That's like predicting the Colts to win the Super Bowl right now. It's nothing profound when you pick the most obvious candidate.

    His speculation is based from the script sides he has for Cyborg.

    or so he says. Even so, all the detail could be false. This thing is a pretty heavily guarded secret, if people who regularly get the sides like K-Site and DTS, dont know, I seriously doubt the random guy from the TWOP forums has them either...

    It's not that hard to keep a secret like this, all you gotta do is confuse people and tell lie after lie, lol.

    It won't be shocking or surprising, well maybe shocking yeah, it's still a death after all, but surprising for us.. no.

    Jonathan, Martha, Lionel, Lana & Chloe.. they're just 5. :)

    Actually they're less, Clark would never cry at Lionel's funeral lol, they're 4.

    The one thing that has me curious is WHY this certain Actor / Actress is out of no where leaving the Show. This has got to be a first for Televsion. I hope after the Episode airs we find out WHY. Obviously if this is a PERM death they written in the Show this Person dying to not have to worry about the Character.

    Spaceballs we're at the end anyway, we will be getting a Season 6 i'm sure.. I want the series to end there, actually I want the series to end now just for 1 reason, to see Tom in the suit lol.

    A death is necessary sometimes, it doesn't mean that this actor or actress has problems with the cast or with the show, everything has an end.

    WE are NOT at the End if theres gonna be a Season 6 :p

    I wonder what Suit they will use when the time comes. If I were a betting man I'd almost bet it'd be Chistopher Reeves as a homage to him.

    It is such a shame Chris is gone :( it would have been AWESOME if Swanne asked Clark to come to the Company Thingy & he hands Clark THE SUIT & Martha & Jonathan (if alive) be there & they ask Clark about a name & he thinks back to when Lana said something like "Are you man or Superman" (back in Season 1 or 2 I think) & Clark Picks Superman with Christopher Reeve being the one to give Clark Kent the Superman Suit it would have been soooooooooooooooo good


    Would have been a BEAUTIFUL moment to see Christopher Reeve handing Tom as Clark the same Superman Suit he wore (only made for Tom)

    I doubt they had a choice in the matter..characters sometimes get killed off of series, Alias just did (why I dno't know), waaay long ago 30 Something did it (remember the whiney show?) Lost seems to be making a trend of it. So if they decide to kill your character, you're just out of a job whether you want to be or not

    I think he is a little more than just some random guy. As Kalkai said he's the one that supplies spoilers to Ksite and I read up on the history of the guy and he just knows more than just random wild guesses.

    It's a ratings grabber, that's why, and it helps them save money at the same time.

    It's a win-win for the producers. They trim an expensive cast member and get a bounce in their ratings for Sweeps...

    With Lost think of when they killed Boone and Shannon... Boone was killed during the May sweeps and Shannon was killed in November, again during sweeps.

    As for whether the actors would welcome leaving....

    Ian Somerhalder didn't take the news well, apparently, of Boone's impending death. He grumbled to the press about it after the episode aired. However, he didn't burn any bridges and the Mouse House rewarded his loss of a steady gig by giving him a deal at the studio for future TV projects.

    Maggie Grace wasn't at all upset about getting killed off, it would seem. She has a movie career she'd like to pursue, but good luck with that unless her wooden performance in The Fog was due to the hack director....

    Probably the actor most willing to move on would probably be John Glover, I would think. He's hardly on anymore anyway since he has so many other things going on back on the East Coast. He works fairly regularly on the stage and shedding the responsibilities of working on Smallville probably wouldn't break his heart. It would give him time to do more of that stuff...

    As for John Schneider? If he's the one, would he welcome leaving? Who knows for sure but from what I understand, he's the only cast member who doesn't live in Vancouver while they are shooting. He flies in for his shooting days and then goes back to his home. He clearly has things that keep him elsewhere when he's not working on Smaville so maybe it wouldn't break his heart to leave either.

    How about Allison Mack? If Chloe is the one, would she like to return to LA and get other work? Yeah, probably.... She hasn't any major work outside Smallville since signing on. She's complained in the press about movies always not panning out almost every hiatus, so she might welcome leaving and getting on with doing outside stuff.
