Hi, can anyone tell me what the different colours mean in the appearance tables on the character pages? So far I've seen green, grey, red and yellow with Xs (which I presume mean the character appeared in that episode) but don't know what the different colours are for.
What's on your mind?

The Secret and Clark's Reasons
Rejection? Fear? Misconstrued honor?
Lex is accosted by Nixon on Clark's secret and asks Clark indirectly. 1.21 Lex admits being in ties with Nixon, but not the full story 2.01. Lex steals Clark's blood, but gives it back to Helen to try and reform their relationship. Clark and Lex reunite, Lex speaks of the darkness inside of him 3.02. Perry threatens Clark, Lex threatens to kill Perry 3.05. Throughout the season Lex stalks Clark. Lex apologizes for stalking Clark in 4.04. But instead of even trying to move on, decides to set up a trap. Everyone; Clark, the Kents, Lana, and Chloe are attacked by meteor freaks and kidnapped. All set up as a plan by Lex, to reveal the secret. Then instead of apologizing Lex denies it 5.02. Lex grabs Lana when realizing she knows the secret 5.12. You can't excuse his behavior here, just because Clark is lying. Instead of to continue and try and reach an emotional connection with Clark- Lex went for a controlling mindset and extorted his friend by using criminals and labs. Excusing this behavior while demonizing Lana for asking Clark directly is strange. Especially for the fans who excuse Lex stalking Clark. I understand that Clark is an alien, and that they have reasons to be suspicious. But if people keep telling you someone is not what they seem, as Lex and Lana are often told in the series it's best to just stay away from them. No way is asking someone if everything people say about them true toxic. Extortion is, but a lot of people try to redeem Lex from this.
Lana thanks Clark for saving her life, she describes the moment and he denies it ever happened1.22-2x01. Clark runs away, not saying why 2x23. Lana tries to visit Clark, but there are Morgan Edge's goons there holding Mrs. kent hostage.
Lana fights the goon, and he is impaled. SELF DEFENSE murder should not be demonized. In fact, the other murders in 4x22, 5x05, and 5x17. Were all self-defense or Clark was threatened. In 2 of them she was either literally a different person or possessed so why rant about- Even the justice system recognizes self-defense as not guilty. Why do fans make this bad, and Lex good? Whatever. Lana doesn't know why the goons were there. We don't know what her and Mrs. Kent did with the body. The whole situation is strange. Clark's life seems to be dangerous. That could be why he left, acts differently, and explain the entire hostage situation. I wish these points were brought up again properly.
Lana has no idea why all of these things happened. She asks Clark directly. She tells him; "You can tell me. You'd still be the same Clark Kent." 3.02 Van says Clark is meta-human and immune. Lana asks the same question 3.03. Alicia says she knows Clark better because she knows his secret 3.14. In 5x03 Lex implies the secret. Lana denies it, because Clark's records seem completely normal. Clark is acting different again, this shouldn't count as secret conversation because death is implied not the secret 5.10. Clana could be happy, but Lex realizes Lana knows the secret and they get into a car accident. And no she is not throwing herself at Lex or manipulating him about the engagement. He called because he was depressed and wanted to see her, she comes running. The same thing happens in 5x16. They're friends- friends call each other an check up on another. Similar instances happen when Clark needs Lana in Blind and Legacy. Lex knows that he and Lana are both suspicious about the things they have heard about Clark and seen him do. Lana denies the secret. But look at it this way- her boyfriend is an alien and she is talking to a drunk. Anyway after the reset she worries that she'll never know the "real Clark" as he stated years ago in 3x02. Lex calls, they talk about it. Lex manages to make Clark sound like a bad boyfriend, and tells Lana he wouldn't lie to someone he loves before caressing and kissing her in Reckoning. But please remember this is the same man that had everyone taken hostage by criminals earlier this season. It's strange at best to see him so gentle with Lana. Willing and capable to do anything to get her at this point. Please don't romanticize it. Heck even I romanticized it! Lex tells Lana he doesn't deserve a happy life.
For some reason this season Lana has a mindset where Lex can do nothing wrong up until the ending of Freak. Trust, because she's know him since she was 14? Devotion. Actually this point of Lana's character was meant to be explored back in season 3.19. Memoria in some deleted scenes, Lana tells the FBI Lex would never use the Talon for money laundering. She asks him directly, he says "of course not". There, it's over.
It seems that if Clark would have just lied to Lana instead of deflecting the conversation back onto her, she would've believed anything he said. Why didn't Clark just say he was meteor-infected? She thinks that he is and is just pretending to not be, because of her fear. Clark has some sort of misplaced honor, he wants true acceptance, not false pretenses. Except this causes him to hide his true identity, by deflecting all of their relationship problems. Meaning he is doing exactly what he doesn't want to do. It's easier for him to just keep deflecting the problem and breaking up with her. But his fear holds him back, they are both teenagers. Clark doesn't want to tell her he isn't HUMAN and be rejected, even if Lana tells him she'll accept his identity when he's ready. She has no idea that she has given her virginity to an alien. There is so much wrong with that sentence.
A lot of people refer to the G. teague murder, which was self-defense and spiritual possession. Plus they also weren't together. It has no effect on their relationship or friendship.
There is a lot wrong with this situation.
Lex wants Lana no matter what, whatever it takes and that is the difference. He'll just say whatever she wants to hear. Even putting a spin on things to make Clark sound bad and himself sound good.
Gosh it almost sounds romantic. But it's not. In fact their devotion to each other may seem romantic, but feel off. Some fans felt guilty or sick. While others felt elated that two friends were getting together. At first I liked the relationship, but slowly started feeling sick everytime they'd kiss. Even the ominous music is a tip off. Later, that same mindset of exploitation used in Mortal will be used this time on Lana in season 6. If I can't have; (Clark's Friendship) (Lana's Love). I'll (stalk Clark) (drug Lana ). Please don't fall into the romantic trap for season 6. This isn't BTVS or The Vampire Diaries or something.
I don't hate Lex. I'm just not a Lex apologist.

I wanted to thank you for your recent activity on Smallville Wiki. I am a hardcore fan whom has been interested in Smallville for only the past couple of years. I'm sure basically everyone else here got into it much earlier than I did. Before you started posting stuff here it was mainly dead, hardly any activity was on. I don't think that I am the only one right now having these feelings. You brought life back here, even changed the way I look at some stuff in the show. Your no hate just peaceful debate policy is great I wish it was like that everywhere. Smallville is a legend, that has failed to be delivered to the generation that were just babies as it aired. I am one of those people. I ran into Smallville by pure luck, due to my interest in the Arrowverse. But as I watched the show I realized it was it was on a whole different level. After watching the show, all I had was a massive instinct to rewatch it several more times, which is what I am doing right now, and absolutely no one to talk to about it, discuss it, have more fun out of it with. I found Fandom and almost nothing was here. I posted a few stuff, got minimum response and just continued rewatching. Since you started posting here, it has been so much more fun. I think there are at least a few more other people here sharing my emotions. So thank you!

Lionel kills his parents and abuses his family. "Misunderstood."
Lex commits stalking, extortion (mortal), genocide (freak), Medical fraud (combat). "His intentions are good.". That being said some of Lex's intentions when it comes to aliens are actually good, or at least misguided. So I still can appreciate Lex.
Clark lies all of the time. "Terrible"
Clark kills aliens who try to take over the world. "Murder awful."
Lana kills in self defense. "Murderer awful"
Lana believes ends justify the means in case of an alien invasion. "EVIL"
See picking and choosing contradicts the meaning of the show and doesn't even make sense. #Tryingtocurethefandom
Please no arguing. Just simple debating.
1. Princess of a Small Town A lot of people do not like the Mary-Sue, Princess, or Damsel in Distress Trope. But the image was created by the town as a girl they saw, a cheerleader who often did charity work, and was well-liked especially after opening the new teen-hang out in town. Although, she admits to Clark and Lex that she does not like being seen as the Cheerleader Princess in (X-Ray) (Nicodemus), but it's way people choose to see her. The character is 14-19 throughout her time on the show, and it's unfair to believe that a 100 pound teenaged girl could protect herself all of the time. Especially against much stronger males, who often have a tendency for a sexual obsession involving the character. Clark will often have to step in and save her at the end of multiple episodes in early seasons. But the kidnappings are often by people who pretend to be her friend and seem pretty harmless at the beginning. It's unfair to think that she is a willing target, or to expect her to be able to defend herself against metahumans.
2. Clex? The main reason Clark and Lex stopped being friends, or more as some fans like to imply. Although it's never shown on the show. Was not Lana. It was gradual, as since season 1 Clark began to hide his secret from his friends whenever they were approached by it and asked him. "Tempest" (Clark/Lex), "Perry" (Lex and Perry), "Commencement" (Clark and Lex). This also included his relationship with Lana. Who he thought would reject him, due to her fear of superhumans. Who throughout the show, especially in early seasons, are depicted as evil. Clark and Lex stop being friends after Lex sends criminal superhumans to attack his family and friends in the episode Mortal to see if Clark has powers. At the end of the episode they fight, and their friendship ends. Later, Lex uses his new relationship with Lana to hurt Clark, constantly mentioning a wedding or just alluding to Lana in general. Eventually Clark accepts the relationship, but still believes that Lex is bad for her. "Crimson" (Clark and Lex).
3. Clana 1st Relationship: The secret. Clark and Lana actually break up in season 3 and 5 over the secret, but both characters are heart-broken. And the breakups are led by Clark. In season 3, he says he doesn't want her to be disgusted in the "real him", she saw on red-kryptonite a couple of times before. This is a deflection of Clark's insecurities onto her. She actually doesn't know what he means by this, or the alien heritage and a common line in their relationship is as follows "You'd still be the same Clark Kent". In an episode in season 3 called Extinction, Van, a military kid tries to kill off meteor-freaks. He indirectly saves Lana. He thinks that Clark is a meteor-freak, and tells Lana he tried to kill him. This belief stays with her for years. Especially after Van implies that Clark has immunity to weapons, but a weakness in kryptonite.
"Exodus" (Clark/Lana) "Exile" (Clark takes Lana to a night club) "Phoenix" (Clark/Lana) "Extinction" (Lana is attacked at the pool) (Van tries to shoot Clark in front of Lana) "Obsession" (Adam's diary of Clark moments) "Promise" (Lana dreams of Clark saving her)
2nd (Actual) Relationship: Clark and Lana begin a relationship in Season 5, and he promises things will be different between them. The premier episode involves an alien invasion, which Lana witnesses. Clark manages to defeat the aliens, but loses his powers for a few episodes. They are able to start a happy, even physical relationship. But run into problems when he receives his powers back, and starts to pull away. He says they havn't been sleeping together because she has been too busy with school and studying. This is another deflection of Clark's insecurities, because she is studying Astronomy. Making her feel guilty for that to take attention away from the subject. Just like taking away attention from the fact that he acts like a different person sometimes and ran away all summer. Eventually they reach an understanding, and agree to slow down the relationship. But her growing interests in aliens and a possible invasion get in-between their relationship. Clark is worried, when Lana realizes that aliens could've been living on earth since they were kids, and says the topic should not be dwelled on. "Fanatic" (Clark/Lana) "Hypnotic"(Clark and Lana at the talon) "Fanatic" (Clark/Lana ending)
4. Lexana Lex and Lana begin a relationship which takes place in seasons 5 and 6. They were friends before for years. Despite being on supposed opposite sides they often share the same view points of meteor freaks and aliens being dangerous. Understandable, because most of the antagonists are such on the show. Being worried on a coming invasion they want to study the technology first without destroying it to protect earth from being taken over. She threatens to fire Dr. Groll. Lex set the whole thing up, they're happy. However, their relationship runs into problems when they realize that problems should be handled different ways. In Fallout, a scientist that works for Lex, believes that with the technology Lex could do something dangerous. Dr. Groll warns that the device could be extremely destructive and to keep it away from the Luthors. They almost break up at the end of the episode, with Lex believing the device would have been in the face of an invasion. And her disagreeing. He proposes however, when Lana discovers she is pregnant. She agrees to marry him and raise the baby. But suspicions of Lex's actions and run ins with Clark lead to problems in their engagement. The episode of choice this time is Crimson again! Yay! In short, a red-kryptonite no-inhibitions Clark kidnaps Lana, says he still loves her, proposes, and then tries to kill Lex. It was very umm.. Dramatic. Anyway at the end of the episode Lex implies he would've shot Clark if he got the chance, and that he wouldn't know what he would be capable of if she left him. It's foreshadowed that the pregnancy isn't normal at the end of this episode. Freak. Yay! A buddy from high-school, named Daniel Kim, reveals that he can move things with his mind. He's killed later this episode, after being kidnapped and experimented on at Luthorcorp. Chloe has also been kidnapped, but survives. Lex swears up and down on their kid that he had nothing to do with it. They later get divorced when it's revealed that their doctor was paid off to tell Lana she was pregnant and killed by Lex. But some fans defend Lex saying he really loves her. That disturbed me the most, his actions are not reasonable by "love".
The next season she tries to get revenge. It's however understandable, because Lex did do these things. Although this corresponds with his redemption arc, making it easy to dislike Lana here. Eventually their relationship and contact with each-other ends all together. And Lana breaks up with Clark at the end of the season to find herself and try to become a better person.
In her shoes, there's a lot of tragedy. At first the character responds by bouncing back easily at the young ages of 14 and 15. But at 16-19 she seems to be a bit more into retribution. Trauma can really change a person, but it's important to realize how these things built up over the years to change a person. Thanks for reading! If anyone wants to use this article or information feel free!

I found that in Season 9, there was a mistake in the episode number. I saw that there was two episode 12's.
I’ve not gotten that far yet. Where we meet other Heroes but ive seen pictures and they look very ..... Amature, cheap especially compared to the CW shows, I’m not hating at all. Just wondering
I actually think Black Canary’s look nice
Lionel Luthor was very powerful and evil, most believe he is more evil and influential than Lex. So, if Lex won presidency and Lionel was power-hungry to the extreme, why didn't he run for presidency? Lionel had the money and power over people to ensure his victory.
