Always Hold On To Smallville: Episode 126 –– Promise

2 mins read

This week Zach is joined by Craig Byrne, webmaster of Kryptonsite and K-SiteTV and author of several companion books on the series, to discuss the one hundred twenty sixth episode of “Smallville,” “Promise.”

We talk the multiple POV format of the episode, how this is a pivotal turning point (a “Crossroads” if you will) of the series, and Craig being on set during the filming of the wedding! I promise you’ll enjoy the latest Always Hold On To Smallville!

Kryptonsite has always been the hub of “Smallville” fandom, and I highly recommend checking out both it and its sister site KSiteTV which covers all genre television currently on the air!
