Lana keeps Clark’s secret but is upset that her friendship with Lois was based on a lie. Her behavior causes Kyle to worry that she is dating someone else. John and Sam suggest destroying the portal to the Inverse World, but Clark refuses and releases Tal-Rho since their combined powers can destroy the pendant. Ally interrupts them and siphons Superman’s power. John holds her off, and once the pendant is destroyed, she and Tal-Rho flee. Meanwhile, Jonathan skips his first day back at school with Jordan and Natalie. She offers him a suit that can stop Jon-El from merging with him. They go to the mines for X-K crystals that can power it, but lose them during a cave-in. Later, Lois apologizes to Lana. She reveals Jordan’s secret and allows her to tell her family; she ultimately doesn’t do so. After learning about Lana-Rho, she decides to temporarily cut contact with the Kent family. Kyle pushes Sarah to perform at open mic night at a local bar. In the Inverse World, Ally siphons the Inverse Tal-Rho’s power, killing him.
