Yeah, a definite shout out to the inevitability of Clark and Lois being a couple. And also perhaps a nod to "Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow" which ends with Lois' husband winking as he closes the door of their house (wherein their infant son has just squeezed a lump of coal into a diamond)

I definitely got a feeling like they were aping Moore's story there. The only problem, of course, is that when a mediocre story borrows from an excellent story, it just serves as a reminder of how much better the mediocre story could have been.

Superman winking to the reader in the final panel was already a tradition long before "Whatever Happened." It just fell out of favor for a while when Byrne rebooted things; I guess that sort of mild fourth-wall breaking was too much for his (overly) serious take on Superman.
