Smallville: Lex and Chloe?

Forget Lex and Lana. After this week’s episode of Smallville, I’m convinced that a Lex and Chloe pairing is so explosive it could spark its own meteor shower.

Their few minutes of bickering proved that Michael Rosenbaum and Allison Mack have chemistry with just about everyone, and especially each other. I’m not saying I didn’t enjoy the Lex/Lana scenes, too. I did. But, Chloe and Lex sparring was spectacular. Cigarette, anyone? (And I don’t even smoke.)

I couldn’t help but chuckle when Lex voiced what Internet fans have been saying for years: why doesn’t Chloe have a boyfriend? We all assumed it's because she’s been pining for Clark. But, since that clearly is going nowhere, I’m with Lex. Chloe needs a man. And who better than our favorite follicly challenged billionaire? Their verbal badminton in this episode was one of the highlights of the season. Lex’s smug, arrogant grin after Chloe stormed out was a self-congratulatory nod that he one-upped her in this match. Brilliant. I can’t wait for the round two.

This episode was Tom Welling’s directorial debut. Congrats, Tom! Nicely done. Although I’m not a fan of the freak-of-the-week stories, (I much prefer episodes that focus on the main characters,) the special effects with the glass were incredible. But not as incredible as the Lex/Chloe standoff. Give us more, please!
