Smallville: Pete Ross Returns!
Post by: Sal
December 6, 2007 - Clark Kent is about to be reunited with an old friend, as Sam Jones III returns to Smallville in the role of Pete Ross. IGN TV has the scoop on Pete's return, which will take place in an upcoming episode called "Hero."
Pete was a big part of the early seasons of Smallville, becoming the first person on the series -- outside of the Kent family -- to discover Clark's superpowers and alien heritage. Pete eventually moved to Wichita, and Jones left the show at the end of Season 3. Since that time there have been occasional rumors that Jones might make a guest appearance on the show, but Smallville producers previously said that scheduling issues prevented that from happening... until now that is.
Those not wishing to know any of the details of Pete's return to Smallville should skip to after the below photo.
We've learned that in the episode Pete will have an encounter with kryptonite, which ends up giving him a superpower of his own. How this will affect his relationship with Clark remains to be seen...
The air date for "Hero" is still to be determined, but look for it in 2008. Meanwhile, Smallville will be airing a brand new episode, "Gemini", next Thursday, December 13th.
