Tv Season Info

Series 7 picks up where the sixth series ended with bad things happening at the Reeves dam. Lex's secret laboratory complex is destroyed, and Clark's Bizarro doppelganger is unleashed. The dam bursts, and Smallville is on the verge of being swept away in the floodwaters unless Clark (Tom Welling) can overcome a being that's even stronger than he is. Soon afterward, Clark meets his cousin Kara (Laura Vandervoort) and teaches her how to control her powers in public. But Jor-El (Terence Stamp) tells him Kara's father is evil and that she is not to be trusted. Meanwhile, Lana (Kristin Kreuk) obtains some of Clark's powers and uses them to fight Lex (Michael Rosenbaum), but Brainiac (James Marsters) attacks her, which puts Clark back on the villain's path. Elsewhere, Green Arrow and Black Canary join forces; and Clark battles Jack the Ripper (Dean Cain).

Audience Reviews for Smallville: Season 7

  • Jul 26, 2020
    The addition of Supergirl is a great help (even if they aren't sure what to do with her sometimes) but the story is a bit more confused than most seasons.
  • Apr 01, 2019
    This was the best season of The show in my opinion it tied with Seasons 1 , 2, and 5 for effective use of story.
  • Nov 23, 2018
    Beyond disappointment that despite a strong start? ends up on a filler note, bad writing and just a lazy finale that brings even worse excuses to begin with. (5/10)
  • Feb 09, 2018
    Undoubtedly the weakest link in the series
  • Mar 05, 2017
    Smallville's Seventh Season can easily be categorized into three distinct parts, each containing their own strenghts and weaknesses: 1. At the beginning of this season, Kara Jor-El (better known as Supergirl) is introduced. The developement of her character is a welcome breathe of fresh air to the show, while the description of her Kryptonian parents' relationship to Clark's Kryptonian family provides some intriguing backstory into the politics of Krypton. At the same time, however, the Clark/Lana soap opera continues, milking that relationship for all it is worth (a would-be touching moment in the finale is rendered midly emotional as a result). 2. The middle of the season struggled to find it's footing. On one (positive) hand, Clark takes a very interesting romp through Lex's twisted mind in "Fracture", while Braniac (always a well-acted, interesting character) returns to wreak more havoc on the House of El. On the other (negative) hand, the Grant Gabriel character arc completely fails, the much-hyped "Gemini" episode fails to deliver its potential, while the return of an old friend in "Hero" proves to be anti-climatic and contrived. 3. The final portion of the season, however, is what boosts my rating from three stars to four. The final seven episodes of the series deal with the mysterious "Veritas" society (of which Lionel Luthor is intimately involved in) that know of Clark's Kryptonian heritage. The quest to decipher "Veritas" leads Lex Luthor to take the final step (in a chilling scene) towards obsessive madness, puts Lana, Chloe, and Kara in mortal danger, and ultimately sets up a long-awaited Clark/Lex showdown. To conclude, though the opening portions of the Smallville's Seventh Season were average at best, the "Veritas" angle brings back the intense drama that Smallville fans are used to. As the show progresses into what may be it's final (eighth) season minus a few long-time cast members, the look of the show may be quite different than ever before. In recent seasons, Smallville creators Al Gough and Miles Millar have been heavily criticed for tampering with the heralded Superman cannon. However, with the depature of Gough and Millar following this season, perhaps the new producers will spend more time explaining how Clark ultimately became the Superman we all know and love.
