Smallville executive producer Kelly Souders tells me "by the end of episode 3, Oliver's life is going to change forever." Uh oh. Might that mean that's the episode in which Smallville finally rights DC Comics lore and does away with the character of Chloe Sullivan (Allison Mack), who isn't a series regular this season? Could be, which would open the door to a romance between Oliver's Green Arrow and Black Canary, two super friends who end up together in the comics. Says Souders, "They're very fun together, but we're big Chlollie fans." Souders also told me she recently sent Michael Rosenbaum a dozen red roses and a private note in an attempt to sway him back as Lex Luthor before the series ends. "Nothing would be more exciting for us than to write for him again."
