"CLARK & LANA
Asma: Before Smallville, Superman was that alien with superpowers and a cute woman beside him. But Smallville brought this character into a different light. It has shown that Clark Kent didn't become a superman in the easy way, which reflects ancient stories of heroes. His path wasn't easy and along with it came a push to feel like a human and behave like them, but Lana Lang was the only one for whom and with Clark Kent allowed himself to cross the line between humans and aliens. He fell in love with her just as she fell in love with only him, even after he went to fulfill his destiny.
Lana Lang is the one who triggered Clark's other potentials when he tried to keep her safe; he sacrificed her intimacy because he wanted to spare her harm (ultimate love), yet she is the forbidden fruit. They are the version of beauty and the beast, the heavenly love of human and angel, the ancient myths of fairy tales between gods and humans. Though he kept his alter ego from her, Lana kept on loving him and looking after him. She even sacrificed herself by marrying Lex to protect Clark, even though he wouldn't tell her the truth himself, another kind of heroism.
Their love is what we all search for today, the one where you only care for the love and happiness of your significant other till death do you part, even if you don't share your life together. Lana sacrificed Clark when he finally came to her because she thought he is bigger than her life, and without her sacrifice neither Lois nor the world would ever know Superman.
So yes, I think Lana deserves to end up with Clark as a reward for several aching years of pain and sacrifice and their wish to be together. As he enjoyed her company before becoming important, I think she should enjoy the famous hero as well—though she cares not that he is Superman, because she sees him as Clark, the sweet and dorky boy next door."
