Smallville Producer Sets Record Straight on Chloe-Clark Relationship


Few TV love triangles have sparked fan debate like the one between Smallville's Chloe (Allison Mack), Lois (Erica Durance) and Clark (Tom Welling).


On one hand, Chloe is Clark's longtime best friend, and though she has pined hard for the future Man of Steel, lately their relationship has been strained. On the other hand, it's hard to overlook the Superman mythology that says Lois and Clark are pretty much destined to be together. But Chlark 'shippers still haven't given up hope that the chemistry between Clark and Chloe will turn into something more.


So, We asked executive producer Kelly Souders to settle the debate once and for all: Will Clark and Chloe ever have a romantic relationship?


"I hate saying never because it's Smallville," Souders says. "But this year, fans will see that both of them have maybe moved on to people who are strangely more suited for each other."


Souders says Chloe and Clark's individual character development has created some basic differences between them.


"When you think of a guy who has just walked through life and had all the power in the world - even though he's had troubles, it's not such a challenge for him in some ways," Souders says. "Chloe is somebody who's had a lot of trauma in her life and has done an amazing job of pulling herself up by her bootstraps. But it gives both of them a very different outlook on life. In some ways, they were much more similar when they were younger [and] were more naïve about the world. They've both grown up a lot and Chloe has really come into her own, just as Clark has."


Even if romance is out of the question, fans of the duo's friendship needn't worry. "Their friendship will start blossoming again and they will come back together," Souders adds.

for all you naysayers--Chloe will be here until the final episodes of this season at the very least. This confirms that.

Of all the friendships that a lot of TV shows try to incorporate into their shows, the friendship between Clark and Chloe has to be my all time favorite. Mainly because in the Superman mythology and many other adaptations to it, their has never been a Chloe Sullivan, and that fact that she's apart of Clark's conscience and uplifting voice of reason just makes it more powerful for me. As for them being more than friends, they've tried it, and because it didn't work out that just meant that they are way better suited as being best friends.

Oh my goodness! Chloe needs to just go away! Clark is in love with Lois and they are destined for each other. Period. No ifs ands or buts. when is Smallville going to start following Superman mythology? What about Jimmy? Lex Luther? Red cape and blue tights Combo? The Clark-is-supposed-to-wear-glasses-and-how-can-he-have-a-secret-identity-if-he-doesn't issue? Above all, WHEN WILL CLARK FINALLY BECOME SUPERMAN? What is this "red-blue blur" nonsense?

Chloe is my favourite character from any tv show, she's smart, kind, a techno geek, loyal to clark through thick and thin. They've naturally made chloe step out on her own for now because she has realised her different outlook to what clark faces. But their friendship is one of my favs on any show. I don't get all these idiots going on about how they should be together, that's all well back like 4 seasons that that got buried. You can clearly see they have both ruled that out and I'm glad cause it would just be annoying. I really hope chloe will be there right to the end of the show, but obviously something is going to have to happen to her since she isn't part of the superman story at all, but she has been an awesome part of the development of the superman character. Please god have another season to finish things off where they bring back Lex Luthor and really end up at a point where thing have reached the point in clarks life where super man is set. That would just be the perfect end to the series.
