Episode Summary

EDIT
Clark and the clone become friends, and she doesn't want to kill the real Lois anymore. Meanwhile, Lex plans to transfer Lois' and his souls into new bodies so that he can go away with her to the mountains, where they can't be found by the police or Superman. He also wants to destroy Superman if possible, and when he finds the clone, she ends up telling him that Clark is Superman. Lex kidnaps Martha and tells Lois to shoot Superman with a powerful weapon that he bought, but when she can't, Lex tries, but he and the clone end up dying instead. During the rescue, Lois hits her head again- now she knows she's Lois Lane, but doesn't know anything or anyone else, including Clark.moreless

    The series turns sour from this episode until the wedding of Lois and Clark. Every crazy scenario is thought off to circumvent the magical wedding, from amnesia to time traveling. I realize that DC Comics and ABC decided to have the wedding occur on both the comic and tv world at the same time, but the tv series would have been better served if it did not have the "fake" wedding. The other unfortunate circumstance of this badly scripted story is the death of Lex Luthor. As Lex is quoted as saying to Superman "isn't one of us without the other incomplete, almost unnecessary." As soon as it was revealed that Lex knew of Clark's secret his death appeared certain. Even a married Lois and Clark could still be tortured by a raving psychotic lunatic Lex. Superman with Lex is incomplete, and it clearly shows for the rest of the series. Although Lex was no longer a common part of the stories in the series after Season 1, just the knowledge that he was in the background ready to strike provided uncertainty. This episode was the turning point for the series, and unfortunate I believe it was for the worse.moreless
