Ching and Zara are revealed to be Kryptonians who are here to bring Kal-El back to New Krypton. A handful of Kryptonians have managed to escape before their planet blew up and have settled on the new planet. However, the ruling families are in conflict and Lady Zara and Lord Kal-El, already married at birth, must go back to New Krypton to rule over the planet. If not, Zara will be forced to marry the evil Lord Nor. Clark and Lois must decide together whether he would go back to save his people, an action which would mean that he might not see Lois again, ever. Written by
