Like some of the commenters here, I liked the SMLL romance. It has been part of the SM mythos from the beginning. That being said, I have no objection with the writers exploring the SMWW dynamic. After all, part of the reason you do a reboot is the characters have gotten stale and you need to shake things up. If it means that it takes a while for the SMLL thing to re-emerge, that's OK by me. But when it does, I hope that it's not "damsel in distress" theater all over again. I'd like her to fall for Clark, just as himself, then find out he's SM. And maybe even have a problem with the SM thing, lots of adjustments need to be made perhaps.
Anyway, I'm glad the writers are mixing things up a bit, so we can see the limits of the characters in the new timeline. These stories don't wreck the characters, they help define them, IMO.
