There were some interesting couples on TV this week. On The Amazing Race, Ivy League partners Connor and Jonathan failed a geography lesson. Fringe, a show already teeming with evil twins, introduced us to a doppelgänger with frightening implications. Super-cousins Clark and Kara learned to fly on Smallville.
