1st pic of Smallville finale's Clark Kent/Lex Luthor reunion

Smallville's finale has been 10 seasons in the making—and we don't just mean the fact that the "no tights, no flights" rule we started with is finally being tossed out the window because Clark Kent will at last be putting on that famous supersuit.

No, we mean that the Clark Kent/Lex Luthor rivalry which has been a subtext of the series since the first episode is going to come to its dramatic conclusion, thanks to the return of Michael Rosenbaum as Lex.

It looked for a while as if Rosenbaum wouldn't be back, but luckily for all of us, the actor changed his mind.

Check out the confrontation between Tom Welling and Rosenbaum above. Is that a smile we see on Luthor's face? It can't be for any good reason, we're sure.

The finale airs Friday, May 13. You'll be tuning in, of course ... won't you?
