Storyline

He is shot twice in cold-blood when a couple of junkies steal his car, and Lex has a near-death vision of having a possible middle class lifestyle with a pregnant Lana as his wife and their son Alexander.

Also, Chloe asks Clark to deliver many Christmas gifts to poor children, and Clark meets a sad and disappointed Santa Claus contemplating suicide. In the end, Lex concludes that love is cursed, based on the fate of Julian, Lillian and Lana, and power and money are the most important values in his life... which leads to him finally starting down the path of the dark side beginning when he secretly ...

The Best and Worst Day of Lex's Life
1 June 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Christmas Eve, Lex is in a dangerous neighborhood in Granville, Kansas, dealing dirty means to cut Jonathan Kent of the race to the senate. He is shot twice when a couple of junkies steal his car, and he dreams on having a possible middle class lifestyle with a pregnant Lana and their son Alexander. In his near death experience, Lex is a simple man beloved by the people of Smallville and best friend of Jonathan and Clark. Meanwhile, in the real world, he is submitted to a life-threatening surgery ordered by Lionel to avoid he becomes crippled. Chloe asks Clark to deliver many Christmas gifts to poor children, and Clark meets a sad and disappointed Santa Claus near suicide. In the end, Lex concludes that his love is cursed, based on the fate of Julian, Lillian and Lana, and power and money are the most important values in life.

"Lexmas" is another magnificent and certainly the most dramatic episode of this wonderful Fifth Season of "Smallville". The innermost desires of Lex are disclosed in his near death experience, and we see again that Lionel is the real villain and the reason of the evilness and malice of Lex. This complex character is my favorite in this series, and in this episode he oscillates between the best and the worst day of his imaginary life. The meeting of Clark with Santa Claus is corny, but also beautiful. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Uma Vida Melhor" ("A Better Life")
