Dear Producers of Smallville,
We don't like Lana. She is not a compelling character. She was never a compelling character. We do not see why the character of Clark is interested in her when Chloe, the other female interest, is so much more....well...interesting.
Your episode with the boy who became Magneto was an interesting but the fact remains, we don't care if Clark and Lana are together. We know they won't be together and so any build up is a false one.
Tired of Lana
