CARRIE FISHER (“Star Wars”) GUEST STARS AS EDITOR OF THE DAILY PLANET – Lana decides to enroll at Metropolis University at the last minute and is forced to join a sorority to find housing at such a late date. However, her new sorority sisters offer her more than a place to crash after they turn her into a vampire and instruct her to kill Clark. Meanwhile, Chloe applies for an internship at the Daily Planet, but the newspaper’s formidable editor may be more then she can handle.
Smallville residents face tumultuous times when the town’s major employer threatens to shut down as the series concludes its first season. The commotion starts when Lionel Luthor announces that the LuthorCorp plant is closing, despite turning its first profit in years. Lex suspects that the decision is his father’s retaliation for Lex’s rejection of an earlier offer to work in Metropolis, so he’s not taking the news lying down. Meanwhile, Clark finds his personal life in turmoil when he learns disparate circumstances may cause both Chloe and Whitney to leave Smallville. A performance by the band Remy Zero is also featured.
