'Smallville': John Schneider returns as Jonathan Kent for some father/son bonding

smallville-kents-320.jpgThe CW's Friday nights are going to be populated by a whole lot of dead patriarchs when new programming returns on September 24. We've already seen that "Supernatural" is reviving Sam and Dean's Grandpa Campbell (Mitch Pileggi).

The Winchesters aren't the only ones saving lives on Fridays, though.

When Jonathan Kent ( John Schneider) died of heart failure in "Smallville's" 100th episode, it was one of the most heartbreaking moments in the series. Now, we've got a first glimpse at his return to the Kent family farm in Season 10.

Jonathan Kent has visited Smallville as a ghost before, but his status this season is still unknown. Is he a ghost? A hallucination? A flashback? Or has he been reincarnated? We do know that Mr. Kent will be around for at least three episodes.

In these photos, he's only interacting with Clark ( Tom Welling), so the jury is still out. Welling and Schneider have always had excellent chemistry as father and son, and if these pics are any indication, their scenes are sure to be emotional.
