Meanwhile in the real world, he is submitted to a life-threatening surgery ordered by Lionel to avoid becoming crippled. 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 ...

During the scene with Lana hemorrhaging after giving birth, and Lex being escorted out, we see him pounding on the door and disturbing the blinds, yet in all other shots of hospital rooms in Smallville, the blinds are on the insides of the rooms, not the outside of them. See more »


Clark Kent: Listen I don't want to be nosy but, I was just wondering, Santa, what are you doing up here? I mean, why are you going to jump?

Excellent version of Dickens's A Christmas Carol
4 March 2007 | by (China) – See all my reviews

One of the best in Season Five, with Clark in his first Lanaish Christmas trading his very precious time with Lana for helping to deliver the gifts, his talking with the mysterious depressed "Santa"(It is the only part I consider lame because Santa could not possibly die from committing suicide by jumping from an eight story building, could he?!), and Lex's interpretation of his dream, in which he had the happiest and saddest moments of life. This episode just pull people closer to Lex's real desired life and in what ways he is going to get to it, ways that make him become a person he will be. Along with the few other episodes in the previous respective seasons, this screenplay writer did a fascinating job adding bits with much subtlety a Westerner could summon, explaining to his audience who eventually turned a man into a devil, power-hungry and full of hatred.

Ten stars should give this show enough credit.
