Lex wants everything that Clark has...that has been a theme explored on Smallville that I really like. I enjoyed Lex and Lana but once again the writers proved inept at trying to write a decent relationship. Relationships on "Smallville" are like relationships on soap operas but with less killing. Lana was Lex's trophy wife. I think Lana actually loved Lex and saw the good and potential that Clark saw but then was revealed the horrible and ugly side. Indeed Guy inadvertently dropped a thought in my head, Lana could be Lex's real life Kryptonite ring!!! As for the clone storyline...I didn't like how that was handled. I think it could have been better if it was revealed that part of Project 33.1 was that Lex was involved in cloning humans in an attempt to create a clone of himself. This could easily lead to him coming back on the show if he truly died in that explosion (I still think part of his consciences still stuck in Ollie, yes yes I keep repeating this because it's the only logical way for Ollie to be acting like he has) he could come back as a clone and use his advanced technology to transfer the original Luthor's memories and consciencness from Oliver!!! That is if Ollie comes back from where ever the Parademons or Female Furies took him.
