'Smallville' Season 10, Episode 9 Preview Clips: 'Patriot'

SmallvilleLate last week, we posted some images from this week's "Smallville" episode, which will feature the return of actor Alan Ritchson as Aquaman. The CW released a pair of preview clips today that further tease the November 19 episode, "Patriot."

The first of the two clips offers a trailer-style preview of the episode, opening with a shot of Ritchson emerging from the ocean with Elena Satine, who plays Aquaman's wife, Mera. The second clip is a scene from the episode featuring Lois Lane (Erica Durance) and Tess Mercer (Cassidy Freeman) discussing the new "Vigilante Registration Act" and the new general in charge of executing it: Slade Wilson (played by Michael Hogan).

Of course, that last name should ring familiar to comics fans as the alter ego of one of DC's most dangerous mercenaries, Deathstroke.

"Smallville" Season 10, Episode 9 airs Friday, November 19 at 8 PM Eastern on The CW.
