Lois was dumb. How many times do airplane attendants tell you to hook up your own belts and oxygen masks before helping the passenger next to you? Apparently not enough for this Lois Lane, such that we get to see her bouncing around the airplane for the next few moments. But while that may be written off as a 'heat-of-the-moment' kind of mistake, there is no justifying the dephts of idiocy to which she sinks when she brings her toddler with her while on a stake-out of a known criminal mastermind who's already tried to harm her in the past. The causality I'm trying to figure out is whether Bosworth saw how stupid the character was and portrayed her accordingly, or if Bosworth had no intention of doing so and instead her doe-eyed performance contributed to the overall perception of Lois' astounding naivety.

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman
Um, I think people are forgetting that Lois had no clue Lex was on the boat, or had anything to do with the power outage in the first place. All she was doing was trying to track down the source of this strange event; there was no reason to believe there was something evil or diabolical behind it.

Maybe bringing her kid along for an interview wasn't the smartest thing for a professional reporter to do, but it wasn't this GIGANTIC error in judgement people make it out to be.
