LOIS:  Look, Clark, I know that I got a little thorny when you raised the red flag on A.C.
CLARK:  I was just trying to look out for you.
LOIS:  And I appreciate it.  I’ve just never had someone to help guide me through the shark-infested ocean of romance. … Not that I can’t fend for myself.
CLARK:  You know, I think I was wrong about our friend A.C.

WHY DO THEY KEEP PARALLELING CLARK/LOIS WITH KARA/LENA???? THEY DON’T HAVE TO. THEY PROBABLY SHOULD DO THAT WITH MON-EL AND KARA IF THEY WANT THEM AS ENDGAME… YET HERE WE FUCKING ARE…. WHYYY??? IT MAKES NO SENSE. WHY PARALLEL THIS FRIENDSHIP (how they want to make it look so far) WITH A SHIP THAT IS ALWAYS ENDGAME AND THE MOST WELL KNOWN CANON COUPLE IN THE UNIVERSE? EXPLAIN
