OG: He's got the Anakin thing going. AG: Kinda. I think there's more to it than that. A lot of it is his father. After a while, how much hounding can he take from that guy? OG: A recent episode had Clark worried about how his powers might hurt Lana when they have sex. Shouldn't that issue have come up earlier in the show when he was having sex with Lex Luthor? AG: [Long laugh.] Yeah, you know, perhaps. OG: That's more than I thought I'd get out of you. AG: [Laughs.] ...with the gay subtext. OG: There's been lots of speculation about who will evolve into the Lois Lane that Superman fans are familiar with -- the Lois Lane currently the show, or Chloe Sullivan. AG: No, it's funny, I've been hearing the rumors that Chloe is really Lois Lane. Then we put in that Lois was her cousin. When you actually put Lois on the show, you'd think that would quell that. I don't think Chloe goes into witness protection and comes out as Lois Lane. OG: So, people aren't responding to these big hints you're dropping. AG: When you actually introduce the character on the show, that to me would be the big hint. But people can dare to dream. OG: When Sam Jones III left the show, fans expected he'd drop back by for a guest appearance. Is that still a possibility in the future? AG: We tried to do it twice last year. And he couldn't do it for scheduling purposes. We tried with "Jinx," the football episode. We wanted Clark's team to be playing Pete's team in that championship game. Then, he was going to come back and be Chloe's prom date. We went on the road with Sam on these both times and there were scheduling problems with shooting commitments. At this point I don't think we would bring him back. I don't see it -- certainly not this season and I can't imagine next season there's a reason to bring Pete back. Gosh, he was so well serviced when he was a regular character. OG: I wrote that again and again. AG: [Laughs.] OG: What about Bruce Wayne? Is that still being worked on or have you given up on having him as a guest character? AG: We can't do it now with the movie [Batman Begins]. Dammit, it was really good. Now they're making another one. That dream unfortunately has died.
