Smallville 10x08 / Supergirl 1x01

My dearest Kal-El, our love will always be with you. I can already see you carry within you your father’s independent spirit. – But more importantly, your mother’s never-ending bravery and her compassionate heart.– Quickly, before it’s too late. We may not have been able to save our planet…– … but we are confident you will become Earth’s greatest savior. And never doubt that, just as you are a part of us, we will always be a part of you. Farewell, my son.

\S/ 

Kara, my brave daughter. By now you have become the woman I knew you would grow up to be. And though you were sent to Earth to protect young Kal-El, your destiny is not tied to his. There is no correct path in life. You will lose your way many times. What’s important is that you find your way back to the brave girl you always were. Be wise, be strong and always be true to yourself.

So I’ve been binge watching Smallville, and Lara-el, Clark Kent’s birth mother, looked familiar. Turns out she plays Eliza Danvers, Alex’s mother and Kara’s adoptive mother. But there’s more, because Dean Cain, who plays Jeremiah Danvers on supergirl played Dr. Knox on Smallville, and both actors have played supergirl and superman respectively. 

I’m sure half of you have heard this before, but I thought it was really cool
