Clark finally asks Lois out on a date, which she accepts after thinking about it for a while.
But before they can go out on their first date, Dr.
Gretchen Kelly brings Lex Luthor back to life and he begins to work toward getting back his fortune and Lois, by force if necessary.
This is the first time John Shea appears with the traditional bald head for Lex Luthor.
When he was a series regular, Shea was allowed to keep his hair, as his movie star looks were kept to be more of a suitor for Lois Lane.
His baldness is explained as a side effect from his resurrection.
