Last week on Smallville, Lex was attacked by a cloaked stranger who carved Kryptonian symbols into his chest, a message intended for Clark.  Chloe and Clark discovered that one members of the Veritas clan has survived and was hiding in a church.  And Clark and Lex raced to be the first to find this mysterious Veritas member, who holds the key to Clark’s survival.

This week, the seventh season of Smallville comes to a close.  Read on for spoilers on the episode called “Arctic.”

The seventh season finale promises some major changes for at least one relationship, and marks the return of a character that viewers might not have expected to see again this season.

In “Arctic,” Lex (Michael Rosenbaum) has at least one surprising ally on his side in the form of Kara (Laura Vandervoort), who is behaving very strangely.  Kara informs Lex that he is fated to defeat the Traveler and offers to take him to the Fortress to learn how.  Clark (Tom Welling), on the other hand, is shocked that Kara would go to Lex but it is revealed that Brainiac is disguised as Kara and she’s actually trapped in the Phantom Zone.

In due course, Lex finds the Fortress of Solitude and discovers Clark’s secret, which eventually leads to a showdown between Lex and Clark.

Meanwhile, Chloe (Allison Mack) is arrested by the Department of Domestic Security, Lois (Erica Durance) is surprised to learn that there was a time when Clark and Lex were very good friends, and Lana (Kristin Kreuk) wakes up from her comatose state.

This installment, which also marks the departure of Michael Rosenbaum, is directed by Todd Slavkin and written by Don Whitehead and Holly Henderson.

Catch the season finale of Smallville this Thursday at 8/7c on The CW.
