Episode Summary:

The episode starts with a video of Chloe stating that she has died and that Clarke is the only person that can figure out the person responsible. The person watching this video was Lois Lane the cousin of Chloe. Determined to find out the truth about the matter, Lois takes it upon herself to find Clarke and get justice for her cousin.

On her search for Clarke’s home, Lois crashes into a corn field. Suddenly a bizarre strike of lightning hits the field forming a pentagram like shape and in the middle lies Kal-El. When Kal-El got up he did not seem to remember anything, not even his name when asked by Lois.  He was then taken to the hospital where he was found by Martha Kent. Lois was ignorant of the fact that these were the people she was looking for and did not find out until they left the hospital.

Martha, determined to get back the Clarke she knew, showed Kal-El some pictures of Jonathan Kent and of his friends that he knew in order to jog his memory. But this did not work and he only seemed to recognize Jonathan and stated Jonathan was not his father. As he walked out side he fell to his knees because of what seemed like a headache but it was triggered by a Kryptonian crystal that Lex Luthur found on his expedition to Egypt. Suddenly he seemed to have figured out who he is and what he needed to do and told Martha that Clarke Kent is dead and his name is Kal-El and he must fulfill his destiny.

Mysteriously Jonathan Kent wakes up from the coma he was in at the same time.
