“A lot of tears” is what Kristin Kreuk promises when Lana Lang bids the CW’s Smallville (if not Smallville, Kansas) a final farewell. As the original cast member’s final three episodes unspool, TVGuide.com welcomed the chance to chat with Kreuk about Lana’s super secrets, her big-screen butt-kicking, and the change that she hopes to bring to the world one small step at a time. (Smallville airs Thursdays at 8 pm/ET.)
TVGuide.com: Word has it that Lana might have left town last spring under rather different circumstances than she led us to believe. True?
Kristin Kreuk: Very true. There’s a lot of stuff going on with Lana that nobody knows except for her. The audience will slowly begin to understand as my remaining episodes air. You’ll find out why she returned … and why she was gone in the first place.
TVGuide.com: On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate the shock factor?
Kreuk: It’s Smallville, so I’d say a 7.5. Considering there are always weird creatures on the show…. [Laughs]
