Smallville, and Nor lets them land. Nor brings charges
against Clark and Zara for high treason and conspiracy --
they have made a false marriage, and Clark plans on
marrying Lois. The tribunal finds Clark guilty and
sentences him to death by disintegration. As the sentence
is being carried out, Ching finds an ancient law that
permits the two lords to face one another in battle to
settle the matter, thus, Trey reverses the procedure.

Lois discovers hat Colonel Cash, of the U.S. military, has the kryptonite and plans to gas Nor . . . and Superman. Clark almost kills Nor when Nor's men appear. The colonel sprays the kryptonite-laced gas, but Superman survives because he was knocked out by Nor's men, and they absorbed most of the kryptonite. Ching and Zara leave to rule over New Krypton,and Lois and Clark decide to get married as quickly as possible.
