"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.

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...
