Re: Smallville Summer Hiatus Discussion Thread

Clark's not ignoring that sweet little blonde thing. He's just pursing her at negative speed.

Does that come before or after Ludicrous Speed?

Re: Smallville Summer Hiatus Discussion Thread

They dropped the ball with the Clark/Chloe romance potential. Just like they dropped the ball with Clark/Lana by having the two of them break up and then get back together. They should have at least explored the possibilty of a relationship between those two other than Clark telling Chloe that he "only thinks of her as a friend" and Chloe accepting it. Although she didn't accept that during season three when she agreed to investigate Clark on Lex's behalf (we know what that got her).

Re: Smallville Summer Hiatus Discussion Thread

Remember how they got together in Lexmas?

If that was "magic angels working for destiny" rather than a dream... It is completely possibly that they are capable of living happily ever after.

I felt that the potential of a Clark/Chloe romance could have, and should have been examined a bit more deeply after the events of 'Vessel' (where she layed one on him, big-time). I just re-watched the ep recently on DVD and that sure didn't seem like a kiss between friends. Instead, what we got in the next ep was the Wholesome Olsen.

Ah, the roads not taken!

Re: Smallville Summer Hiatus Discussion Thread

This is why people have to invent sliding technology.

In some early the Authority comics they started sharing boot leg recordings of "not dead in that reality" rock stars cross dimensionally because it's just a bloody good idea... "I got the copy of Elvis and Jim Morrison singing smells like teen spirit, gosh they became fat bastards."

Re: Smallville Summer Hiatus Discussion Thread

Yeah Post Vessel was a perfect opening for them to develop a romance, Lana was with Lex, Lois and Clark hadn't been developed yet, we knew that it would eventually happen...a half a season arc of them together would be nice instead of back tredding with a lame excuse from Chloe that she kissed him because she thought everyone was going to die. I actually thought they should have got together back after going to junior prom together...but then the damn tornado hit and Clark had to go save Lana.

Re: Smallville Summer Hiatus Discussion Thread

I think the original plan was for Chloe/Clark following Vessel, with Jimmy just being an obstacle to that. Clark didn't seem too happy when Chloe just brushed off the kiss, and was at some points visibly uncomfortable at the idea of Chloe and Jimmy together.

But then the plan changed (I hear because TPTB thought it'd be the last season, ha!) and we got Clana again.

That was back in the days when I actually thought Milfred were going to have Chloe = Lois Lane; i.e., Lois dies and Chloe uses it as a pen-name.

From an in-house canon standpoint, it made a lot of sense.

Or there was an accident and they intergrated? Souls and all.

Interestingly, that idea was kinda resurrected with Henry "Jimmy" Olsen.

^ Except the "real" Jimmy Olsen came completely out of nowhere, while Chloe's been around since the start of the show.

"The Real Jimmy Olsen"

I think I hear a fusion punk album in there somewhere.

I'm just referring to the broad strokes.

Here's my idea of the final scene in the series finale of Smallville:

Clark is busy Red/Blue Blurring around Metropolis. The camera pulls back and pans above the city skyline into the sky where it stops on two figures: Superman (in costume) and Metron in his Mobius Chair. Superman turns to Metron with a raised eyebrow of confusion. Metron, saying nothing, shrugs, opens a boom tube and enters into it, followed by Superman. Fade to black
Yep. would love to see Kirby's DC Fourth World characters in Smallville, like Granny Goodness, Mister Miracle, Big Barda, Kalibak, Orion, and definitely, Darkseid. Hell, I'd love to see a New Gods show! -- RR
