The Fandome was announced to be on October 16 2021. This is the 20th anniversary of Smallville's release. You all think its a coincidence? I hope not.
What's on your mind?
I can't wait to get this on October 19, 2021
Pete admitted his feelings for Chloe in "Truth" but they never discussed it and Pete eventually left the show. That annoys me because I think they would've made a great couple.

I'm just rewatching Smallville for the first time since it aired. Still as brilliant as it was back then.
Having just watched Nocturne I noticed a blatant error in one of the scenes.
The helicopter scene where Clark uses super-speed, super strength and invulnerability, all while Lionel Luthor is lying there on floor (blind). The idea is that he is imagining something miraculous is happening but, can't see to confirm his suspicions. Meanwhile, Clark knows this so is apparently all business as usual in taking down Byron. But the key thing here is, the pilot was still sitting there in the helicopter the whole time. He would have seen everything!
It's not mentioned in the Nocturne episode page so I thought I'd mention it here.
It's a bit late, but Tom Welling revealed he and Michael Rosenbaum were working on an animated adaptation of Smallville and taht they will try to get as many as the original cast members as possible. If it's happening at all, what do you think it will be about? Adapting the comics?

These are just my guesses of what these characters' personality types are.
And it’s like okay because he’s a dude.
Simone She hypnotised him and almost slept with him, when he clearly didn’t give consent by him own mind.
Those Vampire girls: They just jumped him and opened his shirt before he could react and started stroking him lol. If these was a group of young men towards a young woman, this scene would be very different.
Alicia Sure She was Clark’s girlfriend but she did force herself on him a lot, like when she teleported on top of him in his room, when he was sleeping and not fully dressed. And later on she gave him red kryptonite knowing fully well what it’ll do, it’s like drugging him, and tricking him into doing things without his consent or his awareness
Smallville Lex/Lana Analysis *edited version of This is My Last Post
I've read so much on Lana deserved Lex to hit her or the phantom pregnancy because she didn't realize he was evil. Or because she fell in love with a sociopath! She didn't "allow" Lex to manipulate her for all those years they were friends. If you're friends with someone at a young age, you may not think them capable of certain behaviors. Especially if they are overly kind to you. Lex is overly kind, because of his need for close bonds.
While experiences shape someone, in the end they have the decision to change. And Lex knows what he's doing is wrong, and has no intention of stopping. He begins to take pleasure in watching the experiments and torturing the subjects. He could try to change, but doesn't want to. In Freak, Lana becomes suspicious when meteor-freaks are being killed off. She knows Lex studies meteor-freaks, but doesn't think he's the one kidnapping them. Until the end of the episode, when he makes an obvious deflection and swear. Because he’s given into the darkness. He gave hcg (hormones- which are actually real and can cause phantom pregnancies). He does this because she was suspicious of whether or not his projects were really to help people or had ulterior motives after Fallout. His goading Lana into trusting him, by using the invasions in season 5 and 6 as collateral can be viewed two different ways. They were both traumatized after seeing the aliens attack, or Lex knows how to use this to his advantage- while he’s actually more worried about his experiments.
Whether Lex is as concerned about aliens taking over in seasons 5 and 6 as Lana is- debatable. But studying the spaceship after seeing aliens kill a force (Lana) or try to kill him (Lex) isn’t shallow or evil. Neither are the intentions behind this, and Clark recognizes this when him and Lex argue about it at the end of the season. Lex shooting his hand in Vessel, after being abducted represents his want to do right- but going about it all wrong.
Lex also has an obsession with Clark. His constant needs to compare himself to Clark showcases insecurities. That Lex might've had because of the way he grew up in an abusive household. However Lex has become someone who enjoys watching human experiments, then kills the subjects. Sometimes kills the doctors (Rage.) And drugs his girlfriend with hcg (human chronic hormones). It's understandable why she went after him, though her mental state and actions put her in the wrong. She is literally torn between lingering feelings, after this years long relationship/friendship and deciding Lex should die for his sins in Kara and Wrath. Lex's treatment of Kara this season, is also very similar to how he treated Lana last season. Using a medical issue and depression to emote trust.
These views are forceful in not trying to understand the character's situations. I know women who have been abused by a partner they thought they could trust, because they knew them for years. It leads to a mental breakdown, which is what the character is meant to be going through. Just like I know children who are spiteful because they've been abused by their father or mother. People either change and decide to help others- (Lana's decision not to kill Lex and become a hero in 8) or stay in their depression and cannot change (Lex's decision to not change). It's not their true nature, it's a bi-product of abuse. Lex deciding to let the darkness take over and kill his father represents continuing the cycle of abuse.
Comparing season 4 Chloe knowing the secret to Lana in season 5 is being unfair. Lana only asked 2x in season 3 telling him she'll love him no matter what and he changes the subject. She didn't ask again for a whole season! Chloe season 1-3 all she did was pine and try to find out. Even with Lionel Luthor. And she keeps secrets from him in season 4, but tell Jason and Lex- sure. Her and Clark are on outs, so she tells him when she realizes Jason and Lex are using her for the stones. Anyway a ton of people excuse Lex for stalking and holding Clark hostage. Which I will not do, even if Clark did lie. Asking Clark directly was fine, yes it would've kept weighing down their relationship. But Mortal is a turning point for how Lex handles problems. Yes, they saw him use his powers and a lot of people told Lana (Tara, Van, Adam, Alicia, Lex) and Lex (Nixon, Perry, Lionel) things about Clark to make them suspicious, but Clark kept pretending that they were imagining things. Telling them that they wouldn't understand the real-him when they ask directly. They also tell Clark they're willing to be his friend no matter what. Even after seeing him on red-K or when he ran away for a summer. He later started to use deflection to manipulate them into thinking they were the problem in the relationship (Lana not understanding Red-K Clark in season 3 and later moving to college/Lex not telling Clark about his one-night stand list/Lex stalking Clark VALID) and it caused big breaks in their friendships.

One person at a time
e's people that hate Lex and Lana or both or one and then there's people that say they're both evil and Lana's treated as perfect! debatable. Or that Lex is a child-predator! After the re-watch I truly don't know. I keep side-eyeing their scenes.
What's really irritating is how some people rant on how they have always hated the "angel in distress" or "perfect princess" or "cheerleader" and these are adults (and men even) being so obsessively immature and hateful of a 14-15-16-17-18-19 yr old character. Because they follow the cheerleaders are fake stereotype or expect a petite kid to be able to fight super-powered beings. Victim shaming/ blaming is the worst IRL and in forums.
The sad thing is it's been 20 years and people still don't understand grooming, gaslighting, abuse, or manipulation. They just make excuses to blame everything on either her or him and hate one or the other. Now I know I didn't have to. But I've read so much on Lana deserved Lex to hit her or the phantom pregnancy because she didn't realize he was evil. Or she allowed Lex to manipulate her for all those years they were friends. But if someone has known you since you were 14, and is seemingly a decent person, of course you aren't going to think them capable of certain behaviors. Especially if they go out of their way to be overly affectionate or gentle with you.
I’m surprised the alien research is read as evil at all after the events of the episodes Zod and Arrival, especially. Victim shaming/ blaming is the worst IRL and in forums. No, going after someone evil doesn't make you evil if they kill innocent people. And if you think aliens are going to invade, because you saw them massacre and heard their plans to take over the world, of course you will make a threat on someone's job if they get the property destroyed. Threatening the man's job and financial stability was an empty threat, but not out of evil intention or malice.
Yet no one trashed Lionel who took pleasure in abusing his son and wife or getting away with the murder of his parents. The fact that he's taken pleasure and malice in strangling his son. Along with poisoning him to cover up a murder. Even forcing drugs into his food to get him institutionalized and brainwashed. Lionel pretends like Lex and Lillian were crazy and he had to prevent them at all costs, but originally he goaded Lex into being evil. On purpose, for pleasure. He's never told off by anyone for these things. And people like to say he was never evil and only misunderstood. Some people also victim shame Lex, saying he deserved the abuse because he's going to turn out evil anyway.
Then there's people who are Lex-apologists and blame Lionel, Clark, and specifically Lana for Lex's descent to evil. While experiences shape someone, in the end they have the decision to change. And Lex knows what he's doing is wrong, and has no intention of stopping. He begins to take pleasure in watching the experiments and torturing the subjects. He could try to change, but doesn't want to. In Freak, Lana becomes suspicious when meteor-freaks are being killed off. She knows Lex studies meteor-freaks, but doesn't think he's the one kidnapping them. Until the end of the episode, when he makes an obvious deflection and swear. Because it's become his nature to be this way.
Or that Lana was the most despicable for trying to stop Lex in season 7. He gave hcg (human chorionic hormones) which are real by the way, because she was suspicious of whether or not his projects were really to help people or had ulterior motives. His goading Lana into trusting him, and constant need to compare himself to Clark is all to distract her and bring her closer to him. She's trusted this man with personal problems and her economics since she was 14. And that's part of her character too. Even in a deleted scene from 3.16 she tells the FBI Lex isn't capable of money-laundering. It's important to remember Lex isn't the victim here. Lex who's become someone that locks people in cages to experiment, then kills them after.
These views are forceful in not trying to understand the character's situations. I know women who have been abused by a partner they thought they could trust, because they knew them for years. It leads to a mental breakdown, which is what the character is meant to be going through and what people mock. Just like I know children who are spiteful because they've been abused by their father or mother. People either change and decide to help others- (Lana's decision not to kill Lex and become a hero in 8) or stay in their depression and cannot change (Lex's decision to not change). It's not their true nature, it's a bi-product of abuse. Lex's destiny represents continuing the cycle which is why he kills his father. Compassion and context is really important when watching this show.

In I think Season 5 or 6 Clarke mentioned this when thinking about his life with Lana,
Then many episodes after Kara mentioned something like everyone Clarke knows will get old and he won’t or something.
But how/when did Clarke know this to begin wit? because he was still growing and aging at that point
(Sorry wish I wrote this when I first thought it so I could give the exact quote and season Episodes, but I kinda binged watched them late at nights lol)
I think it was using red Kryptonite at the end of season 2. He basically drugged himself to remove his inhabitations to not feel pain and guilt, hurting his loved ones and committing many crimes, getting involved with crime lords...
What do you think?
What are your thoughts on the Chlark Dark Thursday kiss?
Personally I think it was mainly Chloe's emotions exploding, thinking it was the end of the world and the last time she would see Clark.
What do you think?
Whenever you see that name, you probably think some crazy person is about to start doing some crazy shipping don't you. Well, I'm tired of people seeing it that way. And yes I am Chlark fan, as every reasonable person could be.
I don't know if it's just me that doesn't immediately think of the romantic couple when seeing that name. Yeah, Clark and Chloe's romantic relationship at the end of season 1 was cute and hearth-warming to watch and I wouldn't mind it lasting longer. But I absolutely love Chloe (4th fav) and think him and Clark are much better of as BFF's.
