A missed opportunity [Jul. 16th, 2008|09:56 pm]

Happy birthday to nehellania!

Now, Smallville has missed many opportunities over the years....but one of the most regrettable lapses happens...



in "Aqua"! As written, AC was originally supposed to be Lex's swim coach! Can you imagine...these two swimming laps together?
AC: "Great form, Lex!"
Lex: *smirk*

Clark would lurk around the pool and get all jealous: "What are you doing with Lex? What's your agenda?"

Lex likes making Clark all jealous!

Now, imagine this scene with all three boys wet and wearing speedos:

Everyone, back in the pool!

Nevada just cooled off by 20 degrees!

I, conversely, just got very overheated. *snerk*

Wait, for serious? Lex was supposed to be in the pool for part of the episode and they wrote it out?!

I hate them. So much.

Yep! Kryptonsite posted this spoiler in June 2005....
"Lex introduces Clark to his new swim coach."

....Along with this tantalizing teaser of dialogue between Clark and AC:
"You were like a torpedo out there," Clark tells him. "I'm going to show our boy Lex everything I know," Arthur replies.
Woof!

Well that is just not fair! So absolutely, utterly and completely not fair. And then to leak it on K-site. That's like...that's like a form of inhuman torture that is in direct contravention to the Geneva convention I am sure. There must be laws against this surely? Can't they do an Aqua version 2 and see which one the fans like most? The promo clip should just have all three standing round a pool dripping wet and SV will obliterate every rating for every other show screened that night.

Yes! And it would be very low budget to film: one pool, three boys. no clothes.

They're all up in each others' faces and skimpy swim wear could only make it better!

this is an episode i never got around to seeing. wow, nice screen caps! the first one, with lex wearing a suit and looking down at AC, is very idea-provoking! [please pardon the edit, for stylistic reasons. *g*]

Lex looks like he might dip down for a kiss. "Serves you right for flirting with Clark. Now you're tied up and I'm looking at you upside down!"

Lex's speedo would be purple, surely?

We needed to see AC steering Lex around the pool with a flutterboard!

Now that's just cruel of them, to dangle this possibility in front of us, only to whip it away and give us the Aqua episode that we ended up with. These people are truly evil!

Yes, it's very wrong to proffer wet Lex and then withdraw him: three years later and I'm not over the disappointment.

But why?!?! It would have been so awesome! *sighs* And that dialogue snippet is to die for. I think they were just teasing to torture with that spoiler, the meanies.

I love that first cap. Lex was so deliciously in control in those scenes, and MR really seemed to be enjoying himself. And Clark was so obviously jealous of A.C. all through the episode. He only got over it when he realized A.C. was more interested in Lois than Lex. :D

*is still daydreaming about what might have been*

Bet he tickled the guy who plays AC!

It's a good episode for jealousy! Lex is not pleased when Clark brings AC to the mansion: "Another friend from out of town?" Miaow!
