Lord of the Flys

After being approved in Zara and Ching's tests, Superman learns that they want him to leave the Earth (and Lois) and go back with them to rule New Krypton, or the planet will be ruled by the evil Lord Nor.


Zara and Ching want Clark to come back with them to New Krypton to become their leader. It also is revealed that Clark and Zara have been married at birth, which is a common ritual up on Krypton. Clark's rival on New Krypton, Lord Nor, sends an assassin to kill Clark, as Clark is struggling to decide whether he should go to New Krypton, or stay on Earth. Ultimately, the assassin is destroyed, and Clark decides to leave Earth behind. The episode, and season, ends with Clark bidding fairwell to the world, and flying off. As his ship is leaving, he telepathically tells Lois he loves her. Hearing his voice, she walks outside and looks up at the stars...
