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. 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 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 ...

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.
