That is a good point Shalgal. I never really thought about it. But it doesn't necessarily mean that she formally "left" Adam, or that there's even a contradiction.
Of course it might mean just that, that she did leave. If she really was in love with Zack (and young and stupid on top of it), she might have. I mean in "Fool For Love" she was going to leave them to be with Richard Saunders...
I've got one other inconsistancy for you: It isn't so much of a timeline thing as a possible continuity error. Did you ever catch that moment in "Understudy" where Nikki says to Shalimar "You had a family that loved you"?? According to what we were told at the end of S2, that was not the case. Did Nikki mean that Adam was her family? If not there's a MAJOR hole in the character's origin.
No I thought she meant that Adam was her family. I think that is why Nikki was so jealous of Shal that she wanted to kill her. She wanted to have her life and her family. (Thinking that her life would be MX team member and her family is the entire team.)
Since Shal is back with Adam I don't truly feel that she formally left him, just at some point she wanted to be on her own with out him. Get a little experience under her belt.

I agree. In Understudy, I thought [after seeing the S2 finale] that Nikki must have been referring to Adam and the MX team.
And I agree on the "Ex Marks the Spot" bit too. Shal just needed expaerience, and yes it would explain why Shal never met Lexa. And it's believeable, since a feral, and a feline feral at that, would have a bout of "I need my independance"

I guess its asking a lot to have the series confirm that type of stuff. I mean, the good guys (Adam) maynot even be the good guys any more... (Who knows whats going to happen to Adam and his relationship with the team when he gets back )

How will the team react to Adam...boy that's hard to say. And I wonder, after some of the things that Lexa has said, how Shal will react to him, specially since their relationship at the end of s2 was a little shaky...

It would be cool if Shal was kind of standoffish with Adam, you know, wary of him, after they were so close (e.g. S1). Or maybe she will end up being the only one who bothers to still believe in him...
I loved Shal and Adam's relationship on the show. I just feel terrible about them changing his character in such away. I don't even know if I want to see the episodes where he comes back. (Yes, I'm in denile that Adam did any wrong. In my perfect world Adam never hid anything from the team.)
In the first season i always thought he told the team everything. NOw that i know he kept somethings from them i get suspicious about him but i still like him and think he wanted to tell them things but couldnt or thought that they didnt need to know these things. I still cant wait for him to come back
