to sleep. The next morning he confronts her,
but she avoids the subject and also tells him that she's
canceled their Hawaii reservations. At one point he
changes into Superman in front of the clone, and she is
thrilled to know that she is Mrs. Superman -- she can
have anything she wants. She goes on a massive shopping
spree, and Clark begins to suspect something is
Meanwhile, Lex has kidnaped Lois, and she is extremely angry. But, that anger quickly turns to tears when she learns that the clone is married to Clark. After talking to his parents, Clark begins to believe that the woman is not Lois. He asks Perry about Lois' skiing accident, scans Lois-clone's ankle and discovers that it has never been broken.

Luther has in a bank which only Lois can get. Meanwhile,

Meanwhile, Dr. Mendenhall, who begins to treat Lois, programs his patients to kill people he has been hired to assassinate. The patients then have strokes so that they can't talk. When Dr. Deter senses that Lois is getting closer to Clark, he restricts his access to her because he is falling for her. Lois, however, can't fight her journalistic instincts and helps Clark to figure out Dr. Mendenhall's scheme (although she tries to kill Perry).

better be looking out for Lois' best interest, and Lois
goes back to work. But Max tells her that her feelings
for him are appropriate, and Clark struggles with not
being able to tell Lois the truth about their
Herkimer develops a machine which sends waves through the city, making everyone but Clark and Lois vulnerable to suggestion: Clark is unaffected, and it causes Lois to have flashbacks, although she doesn't remember Clark yet. When Herkimer's break-in at an electrical plant leaves behind a clue which looks like the work of Bad Brain, Lois, Clark and Deter talk to his mother. She shows them a picture of the two boys when they were kids, but, when they leave, she tells Herkimer to kill them because she blames them for Bad Brain's death.
Out of desperation, Clark tells Lois that he loves her, that she loves him and that they were going to getmarried. Lois freaks out and runs to Max, who then, by hypnotic suggestion, tries to make her forget Clark and think she loves only him. He tells her she must quit the Planet. When she does, fortunately, another wave hits, and she remembers Superman saving her and kissing her numerous times. Lois then figures out that Herkimer is the boy in the picture. She and Max discover his machine and another wave hits. Lois remembers everything and punches out Max. Then she and Clark take another flight above the city, and he slips her engagement ring back on her finger.

|Lois and Clark attend Lois'
high school reunion, where they learn that the spouses of
two of Lois' friends have disappeared. The woman behind
it, Annette Westman, is a former classmate who was
unpopular in high school. She has developed a shampoo
which shrinks people, and she plans to use it to make the
popular people feel lonely, like she felt and then have
them confide their pain to her. Clark uses the
shampoo, but the effect is not immediate, and he
encounters an exterminator in his apartment -- the man
who works for Annette. Clark finally tells Lois
that he is shrinking. Lois' friend tells her that, when
her husband was taken, one of the neighbors saw an
After getting some discouraging news from Dr. Klein, Clark tells Lois that she can't see him. When Lois goes to his apartment, however, she struggles with Annette's assistant, who drops the shampoo. Lois then takes the shampoo to Dr. Klein, who is less than optimistic. Clark leaves an article on a scientist's research regarding shrinking but tells Lois that he can't put her through any more of the pain that she is experiencing. Lois realizes that the name of the exterminator company is the school's mascot backwards. And Dr. Klein tells Lois that the doctor whose research was used worked for a cosmetics company -- the one Annette owns.
Thus, Lois goes to Annette's to get the research notes so that an antidote can be made. Clark shows up at Annette's as well. When Annette tries to shoot Lois, Clark saves her and also knocks the shampoo onto Annette, which disintegrates her. Lois forgives Clark for pushing her away,and she decides, with Clark's blessing, not to change her name when they are married.

Jon Tenney as Ching;
Rosie Lee Hooks as Mrs. Cutler; and Shanna Moakler as

|After Clark saves someone, he
gets a telepathic message from Zara. He meets Zara and
Ching in their ship, and they tell him that they and
about a thousand others were sent from Krypton at birth
as an experiment to search out a more stable planet,
which they established as New Krypton. Zara tells Clark
that she and he are of noble blood and that they were
married at birth. She tells him that there will be a
civil war if their houses are not joined. Clark tells
Lois all of this and tells her that Ching and Zara expect
him to go back with them and rule on New Krypton.
Meanwhile, Lord Nor (the voice at the end of "Through A Glass, Darkly") sends an assassin, Tez, to kill Clark because he will marry Zara and be ruler if Clark is dead. Tez, who is able to look like anyone, goes to Smallville to find Clark. Lois is upset, and Clark tells her that he won't forget who he is. But Zara and Ching warm them of Lord Nor and Tez and alert them to their ruthlessness. When Zara and Clark place their hands on his spaceship, they get a message from Jor-El. He tells Clark that creating peace for the Kryptonians is his destiny. Tez takes Martha's form and tries to kill Clark. Lara tells Clark of Kryptonian ways. He tells her that he loves Lois and that he won't leave. But she tells him that he has not yet made up his mind. Lois tells Clark that she feels he is drifting away. He tries to reassure her, but he is called away to a isaster.
While he is gone, Tez takes Jimmy's form and then tells Lois that there have to be mourners left behind. Lois goes to Zara and Ching and tells them to leave. Zara tells her that there will be riots, murders and civil war without Clark. She also says she has feelings for Ching, but she tells Lois that there are more important things than the love of two people. Tez tries to kill Clark again and seems to get stronger with every encounter. Lois and Clark go to talk to his parents. They tell him about when they fought for civil rights and people asked why they were doing it because it wasn't their fight. But it was something they believed in. They asked Clark if what Zara and Ching were asking was something he believed in.
Finally, Lois and Clark decide that he should go to New Krypton, and they tell this to Ching and Zara. Clark defeats Tez, who kills himself for failing in his mission. Lord Nor tells Clark telepathically that they will battle again on New Krypton. Lois gives Clark her wedding ring, and they pledge their love to one another. They agree that they are married in their hearts. Clark points out his star, and Lois says that she will look to it every night. At the Daily Planet, Superman addresses the world and asks them to look inside themselves for a hero. He then says goodbye to his parents and Lois, and flies off with Ching and Zara. Later, as Lois is sitting in her apartment crying, Clark sends her a telepathic message: "Lois, I love you."

Lois: Your wife.
Clark: On Krypton.
Lois: Oh, well, we're not on Krypton.
