Smallville 8.17 - Hex
Hex was an interesting combination of pure fun and serious mythos, as a crazy magic spell made Chloe take a hard look at her life and her dreams, and come to a realization that I think holds great promise for the future of Smallville. We met a great new character, Zatanna, straight from the comics, were treated to some wonderful performances, welcomed back Lois and Oliver, and took a break from the gloom and doom that I'm sure is hurtling us toward a heartbreaking season finale. I loved it!

Chloe has pretty much had the year from hell this season. She was imprisoned for months, was possessed by Brainiac, had her memory wiped, had her wedding crashed by a monster, lost her husband, gained a stalker, and was almost killed several times over. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. Add to that a birthday party where everyone you care about either doesn't show up or bails partway through, and I don't blame a girl for feeling a little down. I don't think Chloe's fleeting wish for Lois's life was jealousy so much as it was wistfulness for the path she left behind, the path she was on the last time her life was truly happy. All the burdens of the present made the past look very inviting, but Chloe soon realized that life at the DP didn't hold the appeal she once thought it did. A lot of Chloe's time in Lois's body was played very effectively for laughs, but the more important message was that while Lois's life may be perfect for her, Chloe now yearns for something completely different. And although I know many people saw that as an inexplicable change, it made a lot of sense to me.

Chloe has been a reporter since day one on this show. In fact, as we saw in Progeny, she has been one pretty much forever. And reporting for her has always been equal parts writing and investigating. What we've always seen on the show is her passion for finding the truth. But now the biggest truths in her life are ones she can never disclose, so I don't wonder that some of the thrill has gone out of reporting for her. All through S7, we almost never saw Chloe working on a story. All her time at the DP seemed to be spent working on something for Clark, or researching her meteor power. And then the Justice League found its way into the mix. Chloe's special skill set of brainstorming, problem solving, and computer hacking seemed tailor made to help superheroes keep the world safe, and I've rarely seen her more excited than she was in Siren, after her little adventure with Oliver. So to see Chloe embrace the role of Watchtower as the next phase in her life not only made me cheer, it seemed like a logical next step for her.

I think Chloe has been kind of adrift for a while now. What she was doing at Isis was a noble effort, but as Chloe herself said, she wasn't really qualified for the job, and I don't think it has been all that fulfilling for her. Clark seems to need her less as a sidekick, as he becomes increasingly more independent and confident, and more as a friend. She needs something more, something that will challenge her. For a moment she thought that was reporting again, but as she saw firsthand what that life had to offer her, and contrasted it with the way she was able to inspire Clark to rediscover his inner hero, I think she realized she had a higher calling, one that was about something much more than helping just one man. And so the spell was broken. Chloe as Watchtower has limitless potential, especially for S9, and I can't wait to see what happens next!

Chloe in Lois's body was a riot. I laughed all the way through this episode, thanks to the scenes between Chloe and Clark. Erica Durance did a great job of capturing Chloe. Her expressions, mannerisms, and speech inflections were very evocative of Allison Mack's Chloe, and there was a world of difference between the real Lois and the hexed one. I applaud her efforts in a very demanding role. And how completely awesome was Tom Welling? The man is just too funny! He has an amazing gift for comedy, and I wish we could see that side of him more often. The way Clark struck a heroic pose and manfully called 911 was hilarious, and the whole scene on the roof of the DP made me laugh so hard I could barely breathe. Everything about hexed Clark just screamed mild-mannered reporter, right down to his body language. He was adorable! I especially loved the incredulous way he asked Chloe if she had locked the door to the roof, and the way he threw up his hands to defend himself when she came toward him holding the pipe. hee! TW and ED were pure gold together, from start to finish.

What a contrast we saw when Clark's spell was broken, and he made that glorious leap to stop Zatanna. He was a true hero then, and it touched my heart to hear him speak about Jonathan so passionately, and to share his pain to bring Zatanna back from the brink. I also liked the other side of Clark we saw earlier in the episode, when he was full of snark, showing us the tempestuous side of Lois and Clark's working relationship. I guess there's no question that our boy truly has grown up. Last week he tried to get Tess drunk, and this week he looked directly at Lois's breasts and commented on them! :) Clark's side of that initial conversation in the DP showed us how close he and Lois have become. It's clear they talk often, and about subjects well beyond the scope of their jobs. And he immediately knew that something wasn't quite right with her. These two are tight.

Of course so much with Clark is inferred on my part. I've seen countless signs since the beginning of the season that Clark has feelings for Lois that go far beyond friendship, but it's all a matter of interpretation. Clark still hasn't uttered a single definitive word on the subject. I know that others watch and see nothing but simple friendship in his eyes, or ambivalence, or even regret that he will inevitably hurt Lois because he doesn't feel that way about her, and never will. I know what my fangirl heart believes, but who am I to say anyone who thinks differently is wrong? I understand why the show has hit the brakes so hard: we have an entire season of UST ahead of us now. I look forward to the flirty, snarky fun! And it even makes sense to me, given what happened with Lana. As I've said before, Clark needs time to process, and to heal. But the ambiguity continues to fan the flames of the shipper wars, and I hate to see this fandom torn apart.

I was so happy to see Lois find her inner strength and resilience after Infamous! She was having a blast at Chloe's party, not sitting in a corner pining for Clark. You go, girl, that's exactly the quality that captivates him, IMO. And I adored the way she teased him in their one scene together, reveling in the knowledge that he had saved and framed her rules. :) And how cute was Clark, with the big sigh of resignation and the self-conscious look around the bullpen before he handed them over? *draws hearts around them* I also liked that Lois made no secret of the fact that she was going on a date. I'm glad to see her moving on, even though it's obvious she's carrying a massive torch. Maybe next season will be Clark's turn to chase her. I'd love to see that!

Chloe's scenes bookended this episode, and Allison Mack positively sparkled in them. Chloe looked beautiful at her party, and my heart went out to her. Of course we all want our birthday to be special, and when it's not, it makes you feel like you're not special either. I would have been bummed, too. And Chloe's reappearance as herself at the end of the episode reminded me anew of what AM brings to this role: a life and vibrancy that jump off the screen, and a talent that is nothing short of magical. I think Chloe's Watchtower is going to rock!

I'm always happy to see Oliver join the party, but he still troubles me. Clearly murdering Lex haunts him, as it should, but I don't know where the show is going with that. I adore Oliver, and I think he makes a fascinating counterpoint to Clark in the hero game, but is he still a good guy? I hope so. And BTW, I don't count the way he talked to Chloe at her party among his sins. He doesn't see Chloe as someone to protect and indulge, he sees her as a colleague, a strong and valuable member of his team, and I like that. The way he ruthlessly manipulated her in Requiem? Not so much. :(

Zatanna was fun. She wasn't malicious, just driven to relieve the pain of her loss, and she was sympathetic to Chloe, wanting only to make her birthday wish come true. In the end she did the right thing, and I'd love to see her come back as a Justice League ally someday. Serinda Swan was beautiful and visually perfect for the part, and a good actress as well. Another example of fabulous casting by this show. It's always been their greatest strength.

Random thoughts: I thought Clark's gift to Chloe was especially thoughtful, a sweet reminder of their long and meaningful history together. What was with those flower barrettes? I haven't seen Chloe wear anything like those in years. I like Oliver's new office at LuthorCorp, especially the ginormous Queen family crest. Overcompensating much, Ollie? ;) There's something about a guy in a dress shirt with his top button unbuttoned, and his tie slightly loosened, that is all kinds of sexy. I don't care what anyone says, that was flying! I loved Lois's squeaky chair callback to Clark in Odyssey. And Tom is very, very pretty. :)

Hex was a great episode, and far from filler. I honestly think it was meant it to put the Chlois theory to rest once and for all, especially with Chloe's assertion that "after spending a day at the Daily Planet, I realized that's someone else's life," and Clark's statement that "there's only one Lois Lane." And while I don't think Clark ever really wanted to give up the superhero half of his life, the results of his passing wish to have nothing more complicated to worry about than his next deadline did serve to remind him that he is on the right path. It was nice to hear Clark articulate that, and reaffirm that this is the life he wants, especially when it seems certain he will face his greatest challenge ever in the episodes ahead. I appreciate his resolve, because I fear a reluctant hero would be ill-equipped to battle Doomsday.

Remember how I said Tom is pretty? I thought you might enjoy a few visual aids. :) My top ten caps from Hex:












Did you notice how neat and tidy Clark's shirt and tie are in the cap above? Hexed Clark buttoned that top button and tightened up his tie. There's nothing casual about this reporter! :) What a great little detail. I have to wonder if that was Tom's idea.

This is what happens when I can't send you silly birthday text messages. Sorry for spamming your Smallville review post. Hope your Birthday is epic!

My birthday was wonderful, and you had a lot to do with that. :) Thanks so much for more birthday wishes here! *hugs* And I forgot to tell you in my email how much I loved your card! It made me laugh. A lot. :D

He doesn't see Chloe as someone to protect and indulge, he sees her as a colleague, a strong and valuable member of his team, and I like that. The way he ruthlessly manipulated her in Requiem? Not so much. :(

My huge problem with the whole end of the episode is that it doesn't make sense for Chloe and Oliver to be all chummy-chummy in my books. He blackmailed her so she wouldn't tell Clark the truth about who killed Lex. I think Oliver is one of those morally ambiguous people, to who the ends justify the means. He's like Lex, only given "good" because, theoretically, his goals are "good". And so I really hated Chloe joining up with Oliver because I don't see him as a "good" guy.

Plus, I don't think Oliver really thinks of Chloe as "strong" or "valuable". His comments to Clark when Chloe was infected with Brainiac I thought were particularly telling. The fact that he's human and apparently can deal with the strains a superhero lifestyle brings, but Chloe, at least then, wasn't seen by Oliver as being capable of doing this.

And now I'm rambling. Sorry!

Let's see, I don't really want to say too much, mostly cause I'm trying to live in la-la-land and pretend this episode didn't happen :) Which probably tells you my opinion of this episode (and if you saw my poll after the episode, well, you probably already knew what my opinion was).

I think I may be the only person who didn't find the 911 scene funny. I actually cringed during it because I thought it was so bad.

There was a bunch of pretty. I can, at least, agree with you on that.

Lastly, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: March 31st, 2009 08:31 am (UTC) (Link)
I think Oliver is one of those morally ambiguous people, to who the ends justify the means.

I agree with this, and my problem is, I don't know if we're just supposed to accept that about him, or if the show intends to have him struggle with it and end up on higher moral ground.

I wasn't sure exactly what you were referring to wrt Oliver's comments about Chloe, but if it's the conversation he had with Clark at the end of Bloodline, I interpreted that to mean he didn't think that Chloe could handle the "Clark" stuff, meaning alien, Kryptonian, and completely different from what Oliver does with the Justice League. Plus, I think Oliver feels a much stronger bond to Chloe now that she's back to normal and without any meteor or Brainiac powers. Like him. But once again, I'm drawing my own conclusions, because the show never seems to have the time or inclination to explain the things I wonder about the most.

And thanks for the birthday wishes!

I really enjoyed the ep. My favorite part had to be Clark and Chloe/Lois on the roof, or when he sees a woman being mugged, and heroically...calls 911. And of course I got a chill when Chloe announced "Watchtower Online". Loved that.

I think one of the things this episode really displayed is how much Erica Durance brings to the show. She's been so underused this year. It's criminal.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: March 31st, 2009 08:35 am (UTC) (Link)
Hexed Clark was my favorite part of the episode. He was so funny, and so cute!

I was happy to have Erica back, and especially to have Lois back. That last scene between Lois and Clark was such a treat!
jlvsclrk From: jlvsclrk Date: March 28th, 2009 11:01 pm (UTC) (Link)
That roof scene was such a classic! Thanks for the review and the pretties. No, I hadn't picked up on him buttoning up - I love that reporter!Clark wasn't over the top different, just that little bit more uptight and deferential and "just the facts".

I had a problem with Ollie though - the regret about Lex's death was good but nowhere in keeping with where he was at in Requiem. I think this writer likes Ollie as hero and isn't in the loop as to where PS3 are taking him.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: March 31st, 2009 08:41 am (UTC) (Link)
I think this writer likes Ollie as hero and isn't in the loop as to where PS3 are taking him.

That's an interesting observation, and you could be right. Continuity is probably better this season than ever before, but it's never been Smallville's strong suit. I don't know what to think about Ollie, and I wonder if the issue of Lex's "murder" (in quotes because I don't think he's really dead) will even be resolved this season. I like Ollie as a hero, too.

Happy birthday!! ♥

I loved this episode so much, I could go on and on about it. lol
But you said it best:
TW and ED were pure gold together, from start to finish.

So very true.
I love the mix of chemistry and humour they bring to their scenes. They made this episode for me.
And rooftop scene was one of the funniest things ever on Smallville. :D
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: March 31st, 2009 08:50 am (UTC) (Link)
Thanks for the birthday wishes!

I could go on and on about this episode, too. There's so much more I thought about, especially having to do with Clark and his journey, and Lois and her role in his life, and where their relationship is going right now. This episode was a funny one, but it was also hugely significant for what it told us about the characters.

I've watched the scenes between Tom and Erica over and over, and each time I pick up some nuance I never saw before. I've said this before, but I really think the actors are telling us everything the script isn't about these two, and how they feel about one another. Maybe that's all in my head, but I don't think so.
anakaliaandrea From: anakaliaandrea Date: March 29th, 2009 12:25 am (UTC) (Link)
wonderful review. And I agree with you on everything about Chloe & the Clois situation.
Erica did great.
Tom did great.
Allison did great.
Great episode! =)

and rofl at the sexy 911 call Clark made. I cracked up so hard!!!

and there was plenty of Clois scenes I really enjoyed even if most of them for chloe as lois. still cute! (like the trip and catch)

now ps3 keep this up and bring us some chimmy love! lol
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: March 31st, 2009 08:55 am (UTC) (Link)
I agree that everyone did a great job in this episode. All the performances were wonderful!

The rooftop scene was my favorite, but I also really liked the last scene between Clark and Lois at the DP. So much cuteness!

btw, please check my latest post birthday girl. ;)

Thanks, Toady! *hugs* I had a great one, and all the LJ love was one of the very best parts! Thanks so much for thinking of me.
jeannev From: jeannev Date: March 29th, 2009 04:01 am (UTC) (Link)
Great review Birthday Girl! (and I promise, a birthday picspam is on the agenda!).

I absolutely agree with you on Chloe's path. To me, everything we've seen over the last 2 years leads down this path. And I understand that she wanted to be a journalist since she was a child, but Chloe grew up, and changed, and has had life experiances that few people in the world will ever have. She's discovered a higher calling. I have to say, life happens.

I also don't agree that this episode was really ambigious when it came to Clark's feelings for Lois. There was a definitely a "Look". They made a big deal of it purposely. We also find out that Clark is an enthusiastic participant in the banter sessions, as well as rather happy in their DP psuedo-partnership. And he framed her rules. Notice he doesn't deny it when Chloe verbalizes that she noticed the cow eyes. Obviously, if Chloe was way off base on the Clois stuff, Clark would've spoken up.

*But* I also think what this episode showed us is that Clark isn't ready to go there. He's not ready to really face what he's feeling for Lois, and make any sort of moves about it. And that makes sense to me. He went through the ringer with Lana, over and over again. The last time, very recently. He's probably not entirely convinced that bringing a human woman into his life as a romantic partner is workable. He's also devoting his full self to his new life (which I LOVE!). I think Clark is actually making good decisions when it comes to Lois. And in turn, Lois is also handling the situation remarkably well. I think this episode was a good way to bring the feelings to light, but also to show that they need to be on hold...until next season. I think that works best, for the show, and the relationship.

Oliver is still a troubling spot on the show for me. I really want some sort of climax on his storyline. I want Clark to know what he did. I want something from Oliver. Because of this, the Chloe/Oliver scenes didn't work as well for me as for some people. JH & AM's easy chemistry aside, I'm not sure I buy these two being so buddy-buddy with each other.

And I loved the comedy gold in this episode. Tom was WONDERFUL! So funny. The 911 call had me and my sister cracking up. But even better was the roof scene. Probably one of SV's comedy highlights. Tom and Erica were perfect.

I also really appreciated the script by Bryan Miller. I'm hoping this guy stays around for S9. I think he's got a good way with a story, and a gift for dialogue.

And yes, Tom is the Prettiest in the Land! Every week, its like he's more and more beautiful. Its crazy.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: April 1st, 2009 09:54 am (UTC) (Link)
Thanks, Val! Sorry I'm so late to reply, my online time is severely limited at my sister's house.

When Chloe and Clark were talking about moving on and not getting mired in the past, I thought that was a pointed message to the fans as well. The show is growing and changing, and I, for one, couldn't be happier about it. In spite of the horror that was the Lana arc, I still appreciate how PS3 reinvented this show after AlMiles left. How many shows can do that after seven years?

I think this episode was a good way to bring the feelings to light, but also to show that they need to be on hold...until next season. I think that works best, for the show, and the relationship.

Yes, absolutely, I agree with everything you said, you explained it perfectly. And Hex set up S9 so beautifully! I think we have the promise of a developing relationship between Clark and Lois, and a new role for Chloe with Oliver and the JL. Even so, by not having Clark say one definitive word about his feelings, they leave them open to debate. It wears me out.

Uh, oh, with every other "veteran" involved in a potential arc for next season, things aren't looking good for Jimmy, are they? :(

I have to think they're setting up some kind of crisis of conscience for Oliver, what with that scene of him with the ring in Requiem, and his brooding looks at the Lex headlines in this one. But I'm wondering if that will turn out to be a S9 storyline as well.

Tom was a delight! He obviously puts so much thought into his performances, and his instincts are spot on. I wonder how the episode would have been different if he had directed it. I'm so excited to see what he brings to Injustice!

I like Bryan Q. Miller, too. I think he gets Clark right. And like with this episode, I go back to Committed and watch the scenes between Tom and Erica over and over.

I don't think Chloe's fleeting wish for Lois's life was jealousy so much as it was wistfulness for the path she left behind, the path she was on the last time her life was truly happy.

You read my mind. This is what I said in a reply to one of the comments on my review:

"And there are people saying that her missing that life in this episode is proof that it still runs in her blood, but I think you can miss something for a whole lot more than just that. To me, it seemed like Chloe missing her reporter days was indicative of how topsy-turvy her life has been the past two years, what with her meteor-infection coming to light, dying and coming back to life several times, her wedding ceremony going awry and then her marriage breaking apart. It seemed natural that she would long for the days when everything was less complicated, and didn't necessarily strike me as her missing the actual reporting part of that life."

GMTA! \o/

So to see Chloe embrace the role of Watchtower as the next phase in her life not only made me cheer, it seemed like a logical next step for her.

I would quote that entire paragraph, but YES. This is exactly how I feel about it too. And I love the "she can't reveal the truth anymore" concept ... I'd never thought of it that way.

The way Clark struck a heroic pose and manfully called 911 was hilarious, and the whole scene on the roof of the DP made me laugh so hard I could barely breathe.

Absolutely! I think the rooftop scene was my favourite of the episode ... it was so damn funny!

I guess there's no question that our boy truly has grown up. Last week he tried to get Tess drunk, and this week he looked directly at Lois's breasts and commented on them! :)

HEE!

And how cute was Clark, with the big sigh of resignation and the self-conscious look around the bullpen before he handed them over? *draws hearts around them*

My second favourite moment of the episode. I don't think I've adored Clark more than I did in that moment. :D

He doesn't see Chloe as someone to protect and indulge, he sees her as a colleague, a strong and valuable member of his team, and I like that.

Yup. I took it as him not allowing her to mope, and that's a good thing, IMO. Sometimes people need to be shaken a little to see the good side of things.

I like Oliver's new office at LuthorCorp, especially the ginormous Queen family crest. Overcompensating much, Ollie? ;)

Hee, I noticed that too!

Pretty caps! Our show/cast is so gorgeous. :D

I hope you had a great birthday, T! ♥
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: April 1st, 2009 05:12 pm (UTC) (Link)
Wow, we really are on track again, aren't we? \o/ I'm so glad someone is loving the show as much as I am right now. I thought this episode was good for every character, but obviously not everyone agrees.

That rooftop scene gets better every time I see it. Tom was adorable, and just as he did in Noir, he played the classic Clark Kent perfectly. It was definitely my favorite part of the episode.

I took it as him not allowing her to mope, and that's a good thing, IMO. Sometimes people need to be shaken a little to see the good side of things.

Yes, and Oliver's never been the type to baby anyone. Look at the way he always talks to Clark! :)

Thanks for the birthday wishes! Sorry I'm so late to reply!

Just dropping in to wish you a happy bday! I haven't seen this ep yet, so I'm not going to read the review until later. But I don't have any money to send you a special little gift, so I figured saying hi and telling you how much I enjoy your posts and your kindness will have to do. I hope you spent today doing what you wanted, surrounded by loved ones.

Thanks for the birthday wishes! Knowing you're thinking of me on my special day is the best gift I could ever hope to receive! *hugs* I hope you get a chance to watch Hex, it was wonderful!

Yay picspam! Everyone look so pretty in this eppy.

Hex was an interesting combination of pure fun and serious mythos, as a crazy magic spell made Chloe take a hard look at her life and her dreams, and come to a realization that I think holds great promise for the future of Smallville. We met a great new character, Zatanna, straight from the comics, were treated to some wonderful performances, welcomed back Lois and Oliver, and took a break from the gloom and doom that I'm sure is hurtling us toward a heartbreaking season finale. I loved it!

You pretty much summed everything in one little paragraph. How do you do that?! Any way like you said it was far from filler and I really enjoyed the character insights. By the way I hope you had a wonderful birthday!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: April 1st, 2009 09:55 pm (UTC) (Link)
It really was a gorgeous episode, wasn't it? And yes, the character insights were surprising, given the lighthearted nature of the episode as a whole. I love how they did that.

Thanks for the birthday wishes! It was a good one! :)

Firstly, a very Happy Birthday to YOU! :-)

Next of course is the very detailed recap which is always well done! The pics are very pretty indeed and TW is truly a specimen of grand proportions, lol.

Additionally, I enjoyed Chloe assuming a better role than the somewhat confused MF therapist. At least we see more of her determined and ambitious side. Unfortunately for me it's hard to separate her from journalism/reporting.

The rooftop scene was classic.

Thx again and have a great day!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: April 1st, 2009 10:04 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thanks so much for the birthday wishes, and for your comment! I think anything that gives Chloe, and Allison, more to do, and a better opportunity to take center stage, has to be a good thing. I think the Watchtower story definitely has possibilities. And Tom in downright magnificent! :D

Hee!! I loved Clark striking that pose to call 911. Hilarious!!!

And oh, were those the pictures of your boy? Pretty you say? Huh. *giggles madly*

I hope you had a wonderful birthday and are now having a great time with your sister. *hugs*
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: April 1st, 2009 10:19 pm (UTC) (Link)
Clark was awfully funny in this one! :) And YES, that was my boy, and YES, he is pretty! LOL! Stop teasing me! *giggles with you*

I am having fun here, but it's the most exhausting vacation I've ever had! :) I spend half the day driving my niece and nephew all over town (school, dance class, acting class, guitar lessons, soccer practice, swim team, play dates, it NEVER stops!), and the other half holding the baby (WHEEEE!) so my sister can have five minutes to take a shower or eat something. Going online and catching up with my shows will have to wait until I get home, I'm afraid. :) I'm only here now because my sister took the baby to the pediatrician.
