When Kara ripped Lee's heart out of his chest after using his feelings for her to get close enough, not so much.

I agree with you that the angst really stopped being fun after UB. (I didn't really find the LDYB bunkroom scene fun though either. It showed Kara being mean rather than just hurtful out of her self-protection instincts. I saw that as OOC for her.)

However, and you know I like your take on Lee, so I mean this comment with complete respect... I don't really think it's fair to imply Kara meant to "use Lee".

Don't get me wrong, I hate hate hate that Kara went and married Sam after the K/L night on NC. I don't think she purposefully was using him though. I think they both had been in love a long time...hence the Zak comments when they're talking that night...and finally managed to let their defenses down enough to admit that love openly to each other.

Unfortunately for all of us, that admission made Kara vulnerable, which scared her to death, and so she ran. I hate the way Kara crushed Lee (but she was also crushing herself!!) with her marriage to Sam. IMO, Kara had always been so afraid of being hurt, that she would hurt herself willingly before allowing someone else the slightest chance to hurt her first.

During UB I think Kara did start to see how her instinct to protect herself...even if it meant killing a part of herself...hurt others too. I feel like that was new for her and maybe helped K/L move forward in some ways...at least in my personal canon.
