smallville lex luthor Finally! 'Smallville' welcomes Michael Rosenbaum back for series finaleThe will-he-or-won’t-he has been brutal.

As recently as last night, unnamed sources told Entertainment Weekly that Michael Rosenbaum had officially turned down an offer from “Smallville” producers to return for the show’s two-hour series finale. The producers, however, were still hoping he’d change his mind.

Looks like he did.

“I’m delighted to return for the series finale,” Rosenbaum tells Michael Ausiello’s new venture TVLine. “I’m simply doing it for all of the fans out there who made ‘Smallville’ the great success it is. I appreciate all of their passion, their relentlessness, and even their threats. Ha ha.”

Relentlessness? Where?

“It feels like the stars are aligning, literally,” say producers Kelly Souders and Brian Peterson. “We couldn’t be more
excited. And as far as the way he returns… there’ll be no doubt about
how Lex becomes the great rival in Clark Kent’s life. He is the villain of the story.”

We can’t wait… now we’re just hoping that this time, it sticks. Now only one question remains, Rosenbaum: Bic or bald cap?
