September 24, 2010 – Following in the previous season finale, Lois removes the blue kryptonite dagger from Clark’s body and hides as he heals. Chloe uses Doctor Fate’s helmet to see her future and later swaps herself for Oliver’s return from captivity. Tess wakes up healed in Cadmus Labs and discovers Lex Luthor clones. One clone escapes and forces Clark to choose between saving Lois or Metropolis; Clark pushes himself harder than before and saves everyone. Jor-El informs Clark that the darkness within himself will make him Earth’s greatest threat, but a vision of his adoptive father Jonathan reminds Clark that he can still be the world’s greatest hero. Meanwhile, Lois decides to take the reporting position in Africa and Tess unofficially adopts a child-aged clone of Lex. The season premiere to end all season premieres has come and gone.
