TV Guide Exclusive Smallville Scoop: CW to Re-Air the Pilot
Hot on the heels of the news that Smallville will have a two-hour series finale, the CW has decided to re-air the pilot episode, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.
On Friday, April 8 (8/7c), you can relive the very first hour of Smallville, which originally aired on October 16, 2001, on The WB.
The episode features the crash-landing of Kal-El in Smallville, before jumping ahead 12 years to a teenaged Clark Kent (Tom Welling) saving a reckless Lex Luthor (Michael Rosenbaum) in a car accident, kicking off their iconic friendship-turned-rivalry-to-be.
Coming full circle, Rosenbaum is set to reprise the role of Lex in the series finale, airing Friday, May 13.
After the pilot, Supernatural will air a repeat, but both shows will return with new episodes the following week.
To get you in the mood- here is the clip with the great bridge meeting from the pilot where Clark and Lex meet and the obsession begins for Lex as he is confounded by the mystery of Clark Kent.
