Smallville's Tom Welling and Erica Durance

The CW's Smallville resumes its eighth season this Thursday at 8 pm/ET, with "Infamous," the first of eight new episodes.

In keeping with that theme of "eight," TVGuide.com invited executive producers Kelly Souders and Brian Peterson to tease the big moments to watch for this spring, from eight specific categories.

The twosome's teases may in some instances be short, but each one is still oh-so-sweet to speculate about and set the TiVo for. Here now is the producers' laundry list of especially super scenes.

The Most Frightening Moment
"Beast", Episode 20: "Chloe's Beauty and the Beast fantasy turns into a nightmare." 

The Most Iconic Moment 
"Infamous," Episode 15: "Lois, in Clark's arms, says, 'Guess I can't call you Smallville anymore.'"

The Most Romantic Moment
"Stiletto," Episode 19: "Phone booth. Lois. Red-Blue Blur."

The Most Comical Moment
"Hex," Episode 17: "Chlois gives a 'hexed' Clark a Superhero 101 crash course."

The Most Intense Moment
"Turbulence," Episode 16: "Every minute that Chloe is torn between Jimmy and Davis."

The Most Unexpected Moment
"One word: 'Eternal' (aka Episode 18). If we said any more, it wouldn't be unexpected."

The Most Action-Packed Moment
"Multiple-choice answer:
1. Lois in stiletto boots and a cape, in 'Stiletto'
2. Clark and Tess in a plummeting plane, in 'Turbulence'
3. Clark Kent vs. Doomsday in Episode 22, 'Doomsday'"

And the Most Devastating Moment
"We've titled the season finale 'Doomsday' for a reason."
