I could totally understand Lois taking a step back from the relationship to focus on herself and her career, but I still don't think her going so far as to break up with Clark rang true. And I am never going to be okay with being expected to connect the dots about what might be going on in Offscreenville. Sure, I fanwank constantly with this show, but that doesn't mean I like it. If the writers have something to say, say it onscreen.

That said, I also understand that the decision to cut certain scenes is made after filming is completed, when there is no opportunity to go back and add in a line of exposition to explain what was cut. I thought there were some glaring plot holes in Upgrade, but when BAG described on SHoE how the scene between Lois and John in the Talon basement originally played out, I realized it wasn't that the writers left things out, it was that there wasn't enough time to keep everything in the script.

For me, the question isn't whether or not Clark and Lois truly love one other; obviously they do. My problem is that I think having Lois break up with Clark the way she did made her look a bit capricious, and less willing to fight for their relationship than I think she is. But since it didn't stick, and my fears about more Triangle of Two nonsense turned out to be unfounded, it's not a big deal to me now. ;)
