Lois returns to Daily Planet having regained much of her memories but she still does not remember anything about her relationship with Clark. She still believes that she is in love with Dr. Deter (Larry Poindexter) and when Deter sees signs that she starts remembering, he hypnotizes her into believing that she wants to go away with him. In the meantime, Lois and Clark have to investigate a strange phenomenon happening in Metropolis that makes people act weird. Their investigation leads them to Bad Brain's brother, Herkimer (Daniel Roebuck), who is willing to do anything to make his mother love him and be proud of him. He created a machine that producers electromagnetic waves, affecting people's behavior. While getting saved by Superman at Bad Brain's Mother's house, the last shock of waves from the machine stirs up Lois' memories completely of her relationship to Clark, and the two of them get back together.
