    So-so episode, the plot was a little silly, the storyline was dull and predictable, but there were a few nice Lois and Clark moments. I, like most other fans, really only watched the show for the relatiosnhip between Lois and Clark. This is one of those episode in which Lois realizess how much Clark really means to her.
