Talk Ville’s final episode of the season is graced by Lionel Luthor himself, John Glover. Michael Rosenbaum and Tom Welling revisit their memories with John, including how he was added to the main cast for season two.
John also remembers Annette O’Toole (Martha Kent) going to “bat” for him and how Lionel was essential to the family tropes of “Smallville.”
It just wouldn’t be right wrapping up this season without him. The mane, the myth, and the legend John Glover, aka Lionel Luthor, joins Tom Welling and Michael Rosenbaum as we officially wrap up our rewatch of Season 1 of Smallville and the finale episode Tempest. It was a treat talking to Glover. He remembered what it was like going from a guest star to a regular, how deep the theme of family was in the show, and his true opinion on the character of Lionel Luthor. The guys close the episode by discussing some of the fan voted ‘best of’ moments from Season 1. Any nominations and/ or selections surprise you?Talk Ville episode description
