Michael's Return: The Lexening [Feb. 12th, 2011|04:24 pm]
tasabian
[Tags|, ]

It's nice of him to return but man, the fan-pressure was relentless on Thursday. I don't mean the polite fans who say stuff like "I love Lex. Would love to see you back" etc. That's fine. But other people were flat-out attacking him, threatening self-harm...I had to stop reading his twitter feed.

I did love seeing Michael trend for hours last night. And I know he'll do his utmost to give us an amazing Lex. Hope Tom gives him a big "welcome back" hug.

Poll #1680883 Michael's Return: The Lexening!

How'd they get him back? Your conspiracy theories?

Negotiations were already underway but the EW article raised the stakes
7(10.3%)
Michael didn't want to spend the next 20 years explaining himself to weeping fans
18(26.5%)
Tom: "When I said I'd do anything to get you back, I meant ANYTHING..."
43(63.2%)

How should Lex's "surprise" re-appearance be staged?

Jumps out of wedding cake: "Hello, Clark!:
8(10.8%)
Knocks out Oliver, mid-whine. "Hello, Clark!"
28(37.8%)
Sues Clark for custody of their love-child, Lucas Grabeel.
12(16.2%)
Wears Lois-wig and straddles Clark in bed. Clark recognizes him instantly but decides to just go with it.
26(35.1%)


You know who can say "no" to me? NO ONE. That's right, that's right.

- before they'd confirmed Michael, the show announced the return of Callum Blue as Zod. So now for villains we've got: Lex, Zod, Darkseid, Desaad, Granny Goodness and Alt!Lionel. What's Zod going to be doing? Holding everyone's coats?

- I've seen a few worried posts about Clark being lost in the shuffle. Given the way he's mostly been written this season, I think this is valid. Clark might as well have been a purse for all the plot-driving he did in Collateral and was Johnny-come-lately in every scene in Icarus.

- Greg Beeman would raise up my finale-hopes: he loves Clex and is more flexible with the actors than other directors. I hope Souders/Peterson don't write the script.

- I would rather see one amazing Clex scene than Lex sprinkled randomly through the show. If they structure the finale like a first season episode - ie, Clark's POV all the way through, I'd be pleased.

And I want lots of behind-the-scenes photos of Michael & Tom. LOTS!

I didn't hear Zod was coming back! I don't think I like that idea.

Do you think it's too much to hope for that Clark and lex will team up against all the other bad guys and declare their undying love for each other? I mean Clark knows he was wrong about lex now because of Tess (although her trying to give Alexander a cyanide cocktail was rather mean) and lex has been watching everyone from the sidelines. I assume so he knows clark wants to protect humanity not invade so, they can settle down and raise connor while fighting the other bad guys. and have lots of hot sex in-between trying to save the world.

Maybe Darkseid will possess Zod to better time-manage the villains?

PERFECT ENDING!

Wow--it was so hard choosing between "knocks out Oliver, mid-whine" and "Wears Lois-wig and straddles Clark in bed. Clark recognizes him instantly but decides to just go with it"

Lex doesn't need a wig, silly boy! Clark gets halfway to hard just hearing his sexy purr.

There's a search engine on twitter. If you enter his tag "mrosenbaum711" you'll see everyone who's tweeted him.

Heh, I loved that knocking out Oliver mid-whine is winning.

I'm really hoping for Beeman as director.

The Clex sex option usually wins my polls! I obviously under-estimated how much people want to see Lex smack Ollie.

Beeman would make a huge difference. *hopes*

I know it won't happen but I want a Lex-Clark team up against the bad guys.

Not having been watching this season I didn't know all those guys were turning up. It sounds like far to much and likely to end in an unholy mess. I hope Michael doesn't get short-changed by it - I honestly don't care about anything else, except perhaps Lionel. Knowing SV they will just throw everything at the finale and hope that everyone is so awed by the iconic-ness they won't notice.

Those haters on Twitter are lucky that Michael is a better person than I am - if I had people constantly whining at me to do something it would make me all the more determined never ever to do it as a 'fuck you' to them, because I'm a stubborn bitch like that.

There's precedent - in Justice League Unlimited Clark & Lex team up against Darkseid. Unfortunately it doesn't sound like they're going that way

JG has been fantastic in his two eps. But yeah, they've got an over-crowded field. (Kara is back too at some point.) I would much rather see a single amazing Michael/Tom scene than a bunch of hastily added Lex-scenes.

I hope the people who were tweeted mean things have apologized.

By anything Tom meant for sure something dirty, porny and NC-17. There will be for sure a lot more than just hugging going on on that set when he's back. LMAO. :D

I took the wig wearing option. ^__~

I haven't watch season 8&9 and i hope i won't have to to understand stuff. :S

Yes, one good Clex moment would be prefect. *begs*

I'm wondering if they could be going for something like the last ep of JLU with all the villains and heroes teaming up to fight Darkseid and his horde? Although I'm not really sure if that's the way to go if we're already worried about Clark being lost in the shuffle.

I want that SO BAD. I loved that ending. The reluctant partnerships aspect is so great with Clex.

What a rollercoaster ride! *cuddles poor Michael* I think Clark should punish Lex for his naughty ways by kissing him all over!

I love your polls! I like Oliver, but I'd pay good money to see Lex take him out. :)

I hope Michael has many tales to tell about his return to the show at the Con in Spain. Will everyone be less guarded because Smallville will be officially over by then?

Too many villains for sure. I wonder if this last-minute signing means significant changes in the finale script (I'd be happy if they cut previously announced guest stars to give Lex a meatier role, for example, or cancel any wedding plans). I'm so curious to know if the EW article and resultant fan backlash actually affected Michael's decision, or only made them move up an already-planned announcement (or spoil what they hoped could have been a surprise). I kind of hate to think the terrorists won, if you know what I mean.

It has to be Beeman, no one else can do this reunion justice. B&K kept the 200th episode for themselves, and I can't see them handing off the finale. Let's just say I hope that creating an episode this important is a collaborative process.

Lots and lots and LOTS of BTS pics! And joint interviews, with video! And a featurette for the DVD! And a Welling/Rosenbaum/Beeman COMMENTARY! I want it all!!

It is totally catching me off guard how many people need to see this!

It would so awkward to ditch an actor...maybe they can "montage" the wedding?

I want to know too...perhaps they'd begun to re-negotiate sometimes after the Michael's last SV tweet? I hope Michael was okay with how things played out and the epic trending last night made up for the bullying from some people the day before. EW needs to sit Tom & Michael down for an interview!

YesYesYes...and then Michael makes Tom go to the Spain Con! *dreams*

I have a fic that I've been working on where Lex tries to get custody of Conner from Clark.

I don't understand why Conner is identical to Lex in this universe. One would think he might look a little like Clark. Like… give him Clark hair, or something? It is all so confusing. I wonder if it would be less so if I watched instead of read about it.

That's the question mark on the show...is this kid going to grow into MR (whose Lex is supposed to be dead?) Or will MR return as original Lex? I don't think MR and LG ate scheduled to overlap so maybe alt!Lionel will take him back to the other dimension & he'll become elseworlds Alexander Luthor?

One would think he might look a little like Clark. Like… give him Clark hair, or something?
I though Lucas Grabeel looked a little more like a possible Connor than the younger actor...I don't know if they were playing up the resemblance last night or not?

I have mixed feelings about MR coming back ... if it's because he really wanted to then great (or if Tom gave him one hell of a blow job LOL *wink*) ...

I'm hoping for a Beeman script too ... Give me one good Clex scene and I'll be a really happy camper

Val just tweeted that Beeman is directing! Which hopefully means some scorching Clex and behind the scenes shots for his blog.

I love the "reluctant partners" scenario with them too, and I think they like to play that. *crossing fingers*
Yes! All the sexy-growly-staring!

I'd be v. happy to see a sexyhot smackdown between Lex and Ollie.
It makes sense because they're both very possessive of Clark!

As much as I like the "Tom seduced him into doing it!" explanation, I think the middle one is the closest to reality. Poor thing, being harassed by "fans" like that! I kinda liked that a lot of people ganged up to spam him nicely (and funnily!) with requests, but the rude ones really ruined it for everyone.

Knocks out Oliver, mid-whine. "Hello, Clark!"

I like Ollie, but this is PERFECT. (Also, the writers HAVE to write in a scene of him sexily eating a fruit or drinking from a blue bottle, Y/Y?)

What's Zod going to be doing? Holding everyone's coats?

AHAHAHAHA, the mental image! Coat-hanger!Zod would be AMAZING. He could even complain about it in his Alfred-like English accent!

I'm excited about Greg Beeman, too. He always seems like he's on the same wavelength as the fans, and genuinely seems to care about the story. *fingers crossed*

I know. Poor darling, he really got bombarded. Hope all the love afterwards, and the trending, made it better for him.

YES! I got to watch him tease a bottle at a Con last year & it is as sexy as ever!

I already left a comment on his blog praising his skill at Clex scenes! *hopes*

pouty lips, pouty lips!

About the dearth of Clark, my thinking is that Tom is already mostly onto the next project. As a guy who probably never has to work again, I'm wondering what that might be.
