    This episode was about Jimmy and Lois on a ship. They are help captive by the crazy captain. They go there cause they find a letter that was from the ship. Its not what u think it is. Really a cover up for selling treausre thats fake. Clark gets there and rescues the guy who wants off. Then he find Lois & Jimmy. Then they all get out and attack Clark. He trys to switch ot Superman but cant cause there all around him. Then they make Clark walk the plank. Then he just pops out of water and on the ship as Superman. He then beats all the crew up and ties them up. He acts like he saves clark. Lois is then saying Superman isnt here but u are. Then Clark throws her in water. This was a pretty good one. A crazy captain,crime and trying to kill the reporters. It was exciting and interesting plot.moreless
