Day 18- Best Friendship

Chloe/Clark may be the popular answer but it's not mine. I did enjoy it, but I've had a lot of issues with it over the past couple of years (if I'm honest, even parts of s7). So I went for another friendship that I adore.



Anyone who knows me should know how much I adore the Chlo-Lo relationship. Erica and Allison had chemistry from that first scene in s4. Their hug was just so natural and they just took off from there. They're another reason I always say season 4 is my favorite. It was when we had the best Chlo-Lo. I love that Lois gave Chloe advice back in 'Pariah', when Alicia showed her the secret. She was so awesome with the way she did that, and it was good solid advice. Oh, yeah, let's not forget the whole "welcome to the bullpen, Ms Lane" back in 'Facade', when Chloe supported Lois going into journalism. See, show? You could've had them both working there just fine! But let's not go there right now. I'm focusing on the positive. Even when s5 was full of painful Clana, Chloe and Lois had some nice scenes.

It's obvious how much they mean to each other. Chloe broke down when she found Lois, stabbed and dead, at the end of s6. Her tears brought Lois back to life! Then, when Chloe went missing, Lois fought to find her and get her back. No offense to Ollie and Clark, but Lois got there first and HER plan was better. She had even infiltrated the facility and was the one who ended up locating Chloe. I was angry that we were gypped a Chlo-Lo scene after that. Chlark got a hug! Why was Lois tasered and forgotten about?

Other than 'Odyssey', s8 had some nice Chlo-Lo moments, even when one of them wasn't around. I loved how Chloe warned Clark about breaking Lois's heart. It was a nice parallel to Lois doing the same thing in s4. I wish the show wouldn't give them scenes only when it's convenient.

Even though Allison won't be around for much of s10, hopefully they give Chlo-Lo a nice sendoff!

I'm worried that Chlo/Lo won't get a proper 'ending' either. It feels very much like the writers have forgotten that they're cousins. It's a shame because it was and could've continued to be soooo good.

It really does. The show just hates platonic relationships. That's what I've decided. And yes, it could've been awesome! So much lost potential. :(

I do miss the Chlo-Lo. IMO it started dying in S7 when Lois started working at the DP. Grr don't get me started on the blondie now. lol It's so sad they don't give enough attention to it.
IMO, it started in s6, where Chloe didn't take Lois seriously as a journalism. 'Arrow'. anyone? I was not impressed. And in s7, they even ended up cutting the one Chlo-Lo scene that could've been good in 'Siren'. *sighs*

From what I remember, both Clark and Lois will have the proper ending with Chloe in S10. I really hope so. It's needed!
I hope so! They both need closure with her.

I really appreciate the Chloe/Lois relationship as well. To be honest, I would have preferred more exploration of that than half of the ships on the show altogether.

Same here! Friendships can be so much more fun than relationships. Instead of the Lois/Grant nonsense in s7 and the Chloe/Jimmy/Kara triangle, they should've had Chlo-Lo teaming up at the Planet. It would've made s7 way more interesting.

I really miss the Chlo-Lo too. It saddens me that their friendship wasn't explored enough and imo was pretty much forgotten about. Even when Clark said something about Chloe and Lois back in "upgrade" I felt a knot in my stomach because they not only forgot about them being family but had Chloe chlorform her own cousin in just a few scenes before he says that. Gah it saddens me just thinking about how I went from loving Chlo-Lo to cringing any time I see it on the screen now.

Yup, they started out so good and then it all went so bad. :(

Did she really? Wow, SO not looking forward to see that scene on catch-up.

Gah it saddens me just thinking about how I went from loving Chlo-Lo to cringing any time I see it on the screen now.
I totally understand. It is either mentioned that something happened off screen or just shoved in where it's convenient.

Lol, this answer is a no-brainer ;p & Yes, they NEED a good send-off, or it'll ruin the show for me, 'cause its the final season.

Hee! It really was for me. I just love my Chlo-Lo. And they better have a good send off, but I'm not setting my hopes on it, considering how they often get pushed to the background.

i wanted more epic bffship for them!! they are so cute together
I know! There was good stuff in s4, and parts of s5, but it just went downhill from there.

i love how chloe wanted to BE lois in the hex episode aww <3
I don't know how cute that was meant to be, but 'Hex' was a funny episode. :D
