Smallville’s 10 Most Popular Couples Ranked From Worst To Best
From 2001-2011, Smallville was one of the most beloved shows on TV. Way ahead of the surge of superhero films and series we are now experiencing, the show boasted a talented young cast and told the story of a young Clark Kent learning about his powers and dealing with life before becoming Superman. Despite the seeming impending doom of Earth and the people on it because of “meteor freaks” or worse villains, there was a lot of focus on relationships and fans saw many hookups, breakups, makeups and even some marriages over the course of 10 seasons. Take a look back at the beloved show and 10 of its most popular couples ranked from worst to best:
10. Clark and Alicia
While most Smallville fans know Clark Kent had two major loves in his life: Lana Lang and Lois Lane. Looking back on the series, he had quite a few love interests and flings. One of these flings also happened to result in one of the entire series’ worst storylines. Things were off to an interesting start with Clark and Alicia when it seemed as if he had revealed his powers to someone and had no way to hide it. From there everything went downhill because even though it was nice to see Clark rebel a little bit and not have to hide his true self from someone, Alicia was obsessive, and eventually used red kryptonite to persuade Clark to marry her in a Las Vegas wedding. The relationship ended up being one of the most exhausting fans had to suffer through and were happy to see Alicia out of Clark’s life following her death in season four.
9. Clark and Chloe
There is really one way to describe the relationship between Clark and Chloe went it crossed the boundary from platonic to romantic: Awkward. From the very beginning of the series it was made clear that Chloe had always loved Clark and it was awful to watch her fawn over him while he remained seemingly the only person who was oblivious to her affection. When they finally moved towards being a couple by attending the spring formal together, it was clear they did not have romantic chemistry. It was awkward enough when most of the relationship was one-sided on Chloe’s part, but even when Clark made an attempt it was clear she still liked him much more, making for a horrible couple.
