Bridgette took the Stone of Water to switch places with Martha Kent for the day. Dr. Swann warned her against it, but she did it anyway, asking for Martha's agreement, which she does.

When Clark began learning of his past, Bridgette advised him not to get dizzy due to the text swirling around him. She also agreed with Dr. Swann that Clark should get Chloe to a hospital. She also remarked that Clark was just like his father as he put aside the possibility of Jor-El's wrath to help protect Smallville from the Meteor Shower.

She then gave Clark a pendant with a hologram of themselves and Clark's blanket to Martha, and was given a picture of herself, Dr. Swann, and the Kents from Clark's graduation.

Once he does and Kara leaves angrily, Clark zooms off as well, with Bridgette calling out to Clark.
Bridgette is with the gang when they make a plan to deal with Bizarro and comments that their plan to use Blue Kryptonite to destroy his physical form and let his wraith be is better than nothing. She then talked to the gang after Bizarro was stopped.
After Lionel's murder by the other Lex, Bridgette arrived and explained Veritas with Dr. Swann.

After Lana was made comatose by Brainiac, she comforted Clark. She also comforted Lex, saying that Lionel really did care for him. She also explained that it wasn't like when she lost her powers as she never experienced them, but she does say that no matter how bad things get, Lex will never be alone. Bridgette then attended Lionel's funeral with the others.
