Does Clark ever use "charm person" on Lois? Most intriguingly, does he ever use this in ways that keeps Lois from seeing through his disguise? An alternate view might be this is exactly how Lois eventually learns the truth, his method of charming her is the same as Superman and Clark. However that seems a bit different. It is almost as if a non-verbal cue of "don't ask what I look like without my glasses, and never ask me to take them off" works on her.

Human Popsicle. Is it worth mentioning that it is Lois' idea to put herself in a deep freeze to fake her death in the final episode of season 2?

In Love with my alter ego. OK, I am not sure what we call this trope. However we have one point where Lois is overjoyed that Clark is alive, and then switches back to "if Clark's alive, that means Superman's alive." It is hard to figure how she deduces this without getting to the bottom of what is going on. True, she is assuming he went back to get Clark, and was hit by the exlosion then. The problem is that it makes no sense. Unless Superman saved Clark first, he would have hit ground by that point. If he saved Clark before Lois, Clark being alive means nothing. The whole thing does not add up. However we have Lois being glad Clark is alive in part because it means Superman is alive. She adds insult to injury by then fixating immediately on wanting to scoop the story on Superman.

H. G. Wells and time travel. As mentioned at the end of "Lois and Clarks" it is implied by Wells that there is a way to find the Lois in the alternate universe who was "Lost on assignment in the Congo". Since Wells has a time machine, he might be able to cross dimensions and go to a different time. It might be that he and the alternate universe Clark are going to go back to before alternate-universe Lois died, and then bring her forward in time, and create a situation where she looses her memory of what they did and can be brought back to the Planet as the long-lost reporter who has suffered amnesia for 4 years. I suspect if the show had run more seasons as originally planned, this change in the other Clark having a Lois would have eventually come up.

Clark Kenting: How much should we mention here. The "Pheromone, My Lovely" espisode gives us Lois seemingly admitting she thinks she projects onto Clark the traits of Superman, at least when she is not envious of or mad at Clark.

In another scene in the pilot of Lois and Clark, before Clark develops his secret identity, he sneeks down into a sewer to save a man, and when he shows up the man identifies him as having saved him. Despite the fact that Clark is entirely covered in grime, Lois totally dismisses the notion that Clark is the one who saved the man. She is very angry at having to work with a man she considers the greenest reporter at the Planet, but still one would think she would at least keep in her head this interchange when she considers the matter when she moves beyond being enraged at Clark. Of course maybe when she realizes how petty she was early on with Clark and that she under-estimated his skill as an investigative reporter, she might not be willing to inspect her own life with the same level of intensity.

It is not clear that Lois has ever told Superman her name before "A Strange Visitor" where just after rescuing her from being thrown from a plane along with Kent in a carzy attempt to entrap Superman by a cazed government agent, Superman says "You'll be alright" as Lois sees a missile coming at them, and then to get her attention says "Lois". She had talked to Superman so little to this point that she had not even asked him his name, she invented it after the flew off. It might be that she had actually told him her name, but since she did pass the polygraph on not talking with him, it seems we are supposed to assume that to this point Lois has been too overcome to even tell Superman her name. It is not at all clear how she explains this.
