This post contains spoilers from Season 7 of Smallville.
I’m almost caught up in Smallville now, and I just got to the episode where Dean Cain guest stars as Curtis Knox, M.D. About two-thirds through the episode, it’s revealed that Knox is an immortal, and has been alive for centuries. Once again I am grateful for the time I spent watching JLTAS, because otherwise I would not have recognized that Knox was a version of Vandal Savage. These random tie-ins with the comic are what keep the show interesting for me now, because it’s otherwise time for the 30-year-old Welling to put on his red tights and end the series.
