Smallville: Ten Times Chloe Saved Clark - I worship at the television altar
Smallville: Ten Times Chloe Saved Clark

I put this together for Celebrate Chloe! week at sv_char_love, and for all the Chloe fans on my flist.

In Abyss Clark says to Chloe, "You've been the best friend and ally I could've had, Chloe. The truth is, you've saved me more than I ever could've saved you." To celebrate the awesomeness that is Chloe Sullivan, I bring you ten times Chloe saved Superman himself, Clark Kent.

1) 4.19 - Blank. Clark has lost all his memories, and is completely vulnerable. Chloe, who keeps his secret without his knowledge, sticks to his side like glue, gently explaining what she knows of his special abilities, convincing him not to rush to reveal his powers to others, and protecting him from those who would exploit him.

2) 4.22 - Commencement. Chloe finds Clark unconscious on the floor of Lex's vault, surrounded by kryptonite and with one of the stones grasped loosely in his hand. She drags him away from the deadly green rocks, and distracts Lex while Clark super speeds away. Lex is furious that his precious stone has gone missing, and forces Chloe to go with him to the caves, demanding answers all the way. Chloe protects Clark once more by shoving Lex into the cave wall and knocking him down, giving Clark the chance to continue on his journey to the Arctic without interference.

3) 5.08 - Solitude. Chloe learns that Milton Fine is not who he claims to be, and follows Clark all the way to the Fortress of Solitude to warn him. When she gets there, she finds Clark incapacitated, with a meteor rock on his chest, while Brainiac prepares to release Zod. She quickly throws the kryptonite as far away as she can, freeing Clark to defeat his enemy.

4) 5.16 - Hypnotic. Clark is under Simone's hypnotic spell, and she has ordered him to kill Lex. Chloe stops him with a meteor rock, and Simone changes tactics, hypnotizing Lex and telling him to shoot Chloe and then himself. Chloe wrestles with Lex for the gun, which accidentally goes off, killing Simone. Everyone else is safe.

5) 5.20 - Fade. Graham overpowers Clark with a meteor rock and buries him with it outside the Talon. Unable to find Clark, Chloe thinks fast and calls his cell phone, following the sound of his ringtone to find him. She and Lois dig him out, and Chloe throws the kryptonite away.

6) 6.03 - Wither. Gloria has trapped Clark, choking and impaling him with her otherworldly vines, and he is suspended in the forest in agony. Chloe comes looking for him, Taser in hand, having figured out that electricity will kill the vines. She zaps the massive tangle surrounding Clark and sets him free.

7) 7.12 - Fracture. Lex is dying, and Clark is in danger of never escaping the labyrinth of his mind. All medical measures have failed when Chloe steps up and offers to help. For Clark's sake she uses her meteor power to heal Lex, even though it could mean her death.

8) 7.14 - Traveler. Chloe knows Kara is the only one who can rescue Clark, but first she needs her powers back. Chloe takes Kara to the Fortress, and makes an impassioned plea that we will never forget:

"Jor-El! Out of all the planets across the universe, you decided to send your only son to this one. To Earth! You trusted us to protect him! Now please, Jor-El, I need you to trust me. I love your son! He's in danger and he needs our help!"

Jor-El is convinced, Kara's powers are restored, and Clark is saved, all because of Chloe.

9) 7.19 - Quest. Clark goes to Montreal to confront the last surviving member of Veritas, and finds Edward Teague, a madman who straps him to a kryptonite-laced altar and carves up his chest in a hideous ritual. Chloe realizes the danger Clark might be in, and takes Oliver's private jet to follow him, coming to his rescue once again.

10) 8.08 - Bloodline. Clark is trapped in the Phantom Zone, and Chloe uses her enhanced brain power like never before to activate Clark's crystal and pull him, and Kara, back to Earth. It's clear that Chloe will take any risk to keep our hero safe.

Ten reasons why I freaking love Chloe Sullivan, right here.
My favorite has to be the "I love your son!" scene. She spills her heart and Jor-El is like, "*SHRUGS* I SHIP IT!" and saves the day.

Textual proof how awesome Chloe is!

My apologies to you both for that stray comment! For some reason, I missed that it was a link to tariel22's journal, and not still on the sv_char_love comm! Carry on. :-)

All I can say at the moment is SQUEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

*composes self*

Wow, this is so awesome. Chloe and Clark have a connection on this show like no other. Thanks for sharing this, and reminding us of the awesomeness that is Chlark!

I'm so glad you enjoyed it! It was fun to put together!

This is awesome! I love seeing how strong Chloe is...How willing she is to be whatever Clark needs her to be...Now if only HE'D get a clue!!!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: February 18th, 2009 08:02 pm (UTC) (Link)
What really jumped out at me as I collected these pics is how brave Chloe is. She never hesitates, even when she's up against the most impossible odds. Clark is incredibly lucky to have her by his side.

Icon LOVE! ♥

Chloe Sullivan, superhero in her own right. :D

I love the "Commencement" one because it is just awesome watching that tiny girl try and drag that huge hunk of a man away from all that kryptonite. I love "Solitude" because there is nothing fancy or elaborate about it - she gets in, throws the rock away, and runs off to hide. That's the mark of a girl who's gotten the hang of it. I love the "Hypnotic" one because in the midst of all that confusion, she still goes up to him and asks him if he's alright. :) I love the "Traveler" one for obvious reasons. I love the "Quest" one because OMG, look at her go!

And you know, I love all the others too. Just sayin'. :D

Chloe Sullivan, superhero in her own right.

WORD. Yes, yes, yes, I love these scenes for all the same reasons you say. And she never backs down, she never hesitates. When it comes to protecting Clark, she just gets it done!

I just love their relationship so much; they mean the world to each other.

Awwww. Chloe. <3

I haven't watched Smallville in years but I still miss her.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: February 18th, 2009 08:10 pm (UTC) (Link)
She's definitely one of the biggest reasons I still watch. She's a vibrant, captivating character, played by a wonderful actress.

I was always excited to see AM and MR have a scene together, they were always amazing together. I think it's because they're both such talented actors; together they raise any scene to a whole new level.

Splinter is another great one! Thanks for mentioning it. I love how shocked Jonathan and Martha are to find out that Chloe knows all about Clark. It shows how sure of her Clark is, that he never felt the need to get their approval for his decision to tell her everything.

What Chloe did in Fracture was huge, and still she didn't hesitate. *loves her*

Thank you so much for your comment! It means the world to me that you would enjoy this enough to save it!

I love my girl and she was amazing in Traveler but also in Bloodline. I just love all the risks she'll take for Clark

Toby! Your post about this comm is what inspired me to make this! I wasn't sure I could pull it together in time, so I didn't comment on your entry, but thank you for the heads up. It was wonderful to steep myself in amazing Chloe moments as I collected the pics for this post.

I love my ship!

Thanks so much for this! It will brighten my whole day! :) Gotta agree that the Traveler one is the best!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: February 18th, 2009 08:32 pm (UTC) (Link)

Re: I love my ship!

That scene from Traveler was one the highlights of that entire season for me. I love her passion in that moment, and her courage, and her vulnerability as she opens her heart completely to an entity known to be both capricious and cruel. That she was able to move him was HUGE.

Thank you for your comment! I'm so glad you liked it!

Thanks for putting this together!

"Solitude" and "Traveler" are among my favorite episodes of the series.

Reminds me of some of the good ole days of this show and why Chloe always had me invested even though some of the other characters were complete crap.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: February 18th, 2009 08:35 pm (UTC) (Link)
You're welcome! It was a labor of love, believe me! :)

Chloe never fails to captivate me. Allison brings such life and depth to the character, and her performance is always a joy to watch.

This is amazing and wonderfully done. Thanks so, so much for sharing.

You're very welcome! Thanks for your comment!

Thank you for this. I love your Top Ten Pic spams. I don't think I can pick a favorite here. Each one is great.

I love in Blank the conversation Chloe has with Clark, how she gently explains to him how she thinks he got his powers and how amazed she is with him that he uses them to help people. I Commencement I love how she'll help Clark even though she has no idea what he's doing. She's completely loyal.

Gah, I could go on about all of them, but I'm going to be late for work so I'll stop here.

Thanks so much for this.

I Commencement I love how she'll help Clark even though she has no idea what he's doing. She's completely loyal.

I love that insight! You're so right, she never hesitates or questions, she just does whatever she can to help and protect him. And I love that her reporter's curiosity makes her follow him through the portal and see it all for herself.

It means a lot to me that you enjoyed this, I know what a big Chloe fan you are. Thanks for your comment!

Very cool Tariel. I love caps of Chloe saving Clark. Sometimes he saves her and other times she does the saving. Such a wonderful partnership.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: February 18th, 2009 09:32 pm (UTC) (Link)
Exactly. They are a team. They both are completely committed to one another, and put the other's happiness and well-being above their own. I really don't know of another friendship like theirs.
anakaliaandrea From: anakaliaandrea Date: February 18th, 2009 03:38 pm (UTC) (Link)
Great job pointing these out. It's nice to remember why we love and respect Chloe Sullivan. She rocks as a friend!!! =)
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: February 18th, 2009 09:34 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thanks! I think Chloe is pretty much the best friend anyone could ever have. I'm so glad Clark has her in his life.
