Storyline

On Christmas Eve, Lex travels to a dangerous neighborhood in Granville, Kansas, dealing dirty means to cut Jonathan Kent of the race to the senate. 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 ...

Get in Lex's Head in this Terrific Episode
1 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The audience gets to understand why Lex continues to follow down an increasingly darker path this season with "Lexmas," a fabulous holiday-themed episode that will make anybody who sees it contemplative, grateful, and intrigued by Lex's motives and psyche.

Lex is in the Granville, Kansas slums planning to ruin Jonathan Kent's candidacy for Senator when he gets shot. He is taken to the hospital, and his father Lionel is told that he will be paralyzed unless Lex undergoes a tremendously risky procedure to revive the nerves from the chest down. In his coma state during the procedure, Lex has dreams of what his life could be if he makes the right choices. His deceased mother Lillian helps him through the journey. Meanwhile, Clark needs to make a Santa Claus-like run to deliver gifts when he runs into the jolly red fellow himself.

This episode is wonderful because of the holiday theme and exploration of Lex's potential. A great episode, and one to display to anyone with curious interest in the series.
