Quotes / Second-Act Breakup

David: So basically, Lois breaks up with Clark because she realizes that shes being unfair by forcing him to prioritize his time between saving people and being with her. I wish Id remembered to take a picture, since I actually crushed an empty beer can in my hand when this happened. If this is reversed in the finale, its a cheap, last-second dramatic device thats totally unnecessary and just screwing with the viewers.
Chris: And of course itll be reversed, because weve seen them in the future in this very season, and theyre married. Either way: absolutely pointless.
