SV writer on Clex romance [Apr. 8th, 2011|07:11 pm]
tasabian
[Tags|, ]

Smallville writer/producer Kelly Souders said this about the show today:

"We actually think of it as the Clark/Lex love story"

A journalist at the event tweeted:

Smallville has a Clark/Lex romance. The writers room thinks it.

Thanks to tariel22 for the Link

What does this mean for Clex in the finale?



Souders: "the focus has been about how these two guys have impacted each other's lives. And I think, starting in the pilot, realizing how it was always just such a twist on the way we always imagined them, as mortal enemies. And in fact, they showed up in the pilot as something quite different. I think in the finale, what our goal was, is obviously we're launching them towards the future, where they are going to be mortal enemies. But what we didn't want, was to make their last interaction something that was just a catfight between them. So we go one step further I think, in showing how they will impact each other, in making the greatest hero and the greatest enemy we'll ever know."

If there's no catfight, I hope at least they end up in a pile of tangled limbs, with the heavy breathing and the parted lips and hands going everywhere and Clark's damp hair tickling Lex's ear...

Y'know I may not like where this season has gone, but yeah NO ONE can deny the connection between the two. They will always be connected, 1and if the show shows that? I will dancing in the street!!!
Oh and your idea? It'd be the ending of all endings!

Give him the Kiss of Lethe, Clark, with tongue, and make it last hours!

That... um, sounds ominous. They're going to muck it up, I just know they are. o.O Gah.

((And what do they mean "such a twist"? Supes and Lex being friends when they were young is in the comic ORIGINS... a twist, yeah, an unknown one, no. Do they think they were being original?))

If they want to be original, the final scene should be Clex entwined on a rug by the fire!

I'm hoping the Michael/Tom chemistry will salvage however their scenes are written...

That would be original and we would LOVE it! ^__^ If this is about a love story, that's definitely how it should end. :)

Yeah, Michael and Tom have always been able to sell it to us no matter what before. They're definitely the best. ^^

I'm telling you they walk off the screen hand in hand with their son to raise him together. *grin*

You know there actually is a Clex-baby on the show now? Conner, aged 16.

Yes, though I didn't realise he'd aged up to teenhood so fast.

He actually does look like a plausible TomMichael offspring! But, as is SV's wont, he seems to have just vanished from the narrative; the actor has no further episodes.

I definitely love your idea for the ending. ;) Don't forget all the panting, moaning, and groaning. *g*

If a fraction of this sentiment makes its way to the finale, I will be pleased!

The really sad thing though is that they turn around and SAY this again after all these years... but they haven't shown it bar in those first couple of seasons. I do hope Clark is all repentant and wanna-save Lex instead of "YOU R EVIL LEX I WUZ RONG EVAR 2 TRUST U EVERY1 WZ RITE ABOUT U". Because I would understand a final enemies thing far better if there had been a LOT more of Clark cutting Lex slack, trying to understand, feeling mopey about how he might not have done enough to save Lex from the lightswitch of evil ... the usual deal.

It wasn't as great as in the early seasons but they still had Clex-heavy episodes like Nemesis, Fracture, Arctic in the later seasons. Even with Michael off the show, there have been Clex shout-outs from time to time. Last season Zod asked if Clark had ever had a friend who had been "the other half of his soul" and Clark said wistfully "yes, a long time ago."

Clark also yelled at alt!Lionel this season "Lex was my closest friend and you destroyed him..."

So I think the desire to give us some old school Clex in the finale is there...but there may be a gap between wanting & achieving. (I do have faith in Michael & Tom though.)

There's often a gap on SV between what they want to do and what we actually see onscreen...but hopefully Michael and Tom can work their magic chemistry (and squeeze in a few touches...)

I still can't believe we're going to see Clark and Lex again. Together, in the same room!!
I hope at least they end up in a pile of tangled limbs, with the heavy breathing and the parted lips and hands going everywhere and Clark's damp hair tickling Lex's ear...

*gasps* If only!!
