Aside from the fact that MR isn’t as physically attractive as he once was, the main problem with S6 Lex is that he’s no longer a sexy person. There seems to be no real reason for Lana to be with Lex, other than that she’s now pregnant with his child and she hates being alone. We know she’s not the type to stay because of money, so the relationship doesn’t make any sense. Lex, if Rage is anything to go by, is a truly horrendous boyfriend. It’s not the controlling, possessive shit (which I could easily get behind), it’s that he’s *cold*. I can’t imagine this Lex being a passionate or dirty lover. He’s cold and dry and slightly pathetic. This is *not* consistent character development and I don’t believe that my sudden lack of interest in Lex as an object of lust is just because he’s now being written as the villain. Because he made a VERY VERY HOT villain in Onyx.
If he could just ditch Lana and camp it up a little bit I’d be all over it. It would also help if he wasn’t incompetent and if he stopped whining so much.
More importantly, the pregnancy has been the surprise hit storyline of the season, with me and the majority of my flist finding it COMPLETELY HILARIOUS. Here is a poll on the subject. (You can answer the first question in one of two ways: what you choose to believe until it's otherwise explained or what you think SV *wants* us to believe. I don't mind!)
How did Lana get pregnant?
Zod fucked her without her knowledge.
The condom burst because Lex's sperm is evil.
Lex has been replacing her contraceptive pills with candy.
They used the pull out method. It failed them.
They had unprotected sex because they're both fuckwits.
What should Lana do now?
She should HAVE AN ABORTION FOR FUCK'S SAKE.
She should run away from Smallville and raise the kid on her own.
She should stay with Lex and try to make it work.
Bottle of gin, hot bath.
What will happen?
Miscarriage, because Lana's too perfect to abort.
Miscarriage, because abortion is too controversial for SV.
Miscarriage, because AlMiles would never let Lana get fat.
She'll have the kid.
He's as sexy as he's always been.
He's not as sexy as he once was but I still love him.
He's not doing it for me anymore, which is very sad.
