Clark takes Lois to the Fortress to get Jor-El's blessing for their marriage. Jor-El bestows a unique wedding gift on the couple – he gives Lois Clark's superpowers so she can see what it's like to be him for a day. Unfortunately, the Toyman has returned to Metropolis, so Lois must go up against the notorious villain instead of Clark. Meanwhile, Oliver searches for the Bow of Orion, which he believes will remove the Omega symbol from his skull, and runs into Kara, who is also on a mission to stop Darkseid.

Clark arrives at Lois' new office at the Planet and takes off his glasses. Lois is busy with a story; a mysterious company known as Marionette Ventures is buying numerous companies/shops around Metropolis. Clark tells Lois that there is something they forgot to do, and takes Lois to the Fortress of Solitude. He informs her that Kara told him it's Kryptonian tradition that the groom's father approve all marriages. Jor-El welcomes Clark, who tells Jor-El he wants to marry Lois.
Jor-El asks Lois if she truly intends to spend the rest of her life with Clark. Lois says "I do." Jor-El says there is something they both need to understand. A huge pile of ice crystals falls on Lois, knocking her unconscious and trapping her under a long column. When Clark goes to try to rescue her, he discovers that his powers are gone and he's unable to lift them off her. Clark says he needs his powers back. Lois begins to wake up and Clark asks Lois if she's okay. Lois lifts the entire ice column over her head and tells him she more than okay, she's "Super".
Oliver is traversing down an opening to an underground cave/mine. He turns on a flashlight and begins walking, stopping to look at walls with symbols on them. He comments that the symbols aren't Celtic and hears a voice telling him they're "Apokoliptian". He walks towards the voice who commented, taking out his bow and aiming it. He sees Kara, surrounded by a ring of light and lowers his bow. He asks her if she's Clark's cousin, she says yes. Oliver steps forward to release Kara, but she tells him to wait because it'll kill him. She throws a stone at the barrier surrounding her, only for it to disintegrate. Kara asks how he found her since she hasn't checked in with Watchtower in weeks. Oliver tells her he's not part of a rescue party, he just came to find the Bow of Orion. She's surprised he's there without Clark.
Oliver asks how she came to be trapped and Kara states she touched the symbol for the hunter and the trap spring up on her. Oliver sees more writing on the wall and asks her to translate. She does, explaining that it's a prophecy about the end of the world, written by the hunter himself. She continues, describing how the two symbols for light and dark, must be in balance. He reasons that the dark symbol, Omega, should counteract the other and release her. He asks her permission to press on the symbol representing Omega. She agrees because Clark trusts him, and it works, releasing her. She thanks him then tells him that they should go get what they came for. After one last look at the Omega sign, Oliver follows after her.
Back in Lois' office, Clark attempts to follow Lois with his eyes while she super-speeds around doing multiple things while talking. Clark tells her that he's pretty sure Jor-El didn't give her his powers so she could get ahead at the office. She states that she's caught both of them up for the wedding as well as the days after. She tells him she's doing 800% better than the day before. Lois accidentally breaks the keyboard while typing then picks it and corrects herself saying it's more like 700%.
Clark tells her that he's not sure what Jor-El's reasoning is for giving her his powers, but he's worried. Lois reminds him that Jor-El told them that Clark would get his powers back at sunset. Clark checks how much time is left before sunset, and sees that sunset occurs at 6:58 pm and tells her a lot can happen before then. Lois then gets up on her desk to look over her map that's on the floor and realizes that she was so focused on what businesses had been sold to Marionette Ventures that she never realized what they all actually had in common. Clark turns and spots that all the businesses are on the boundry for the underground reservoir. once the businesses have been purchased then the company will hold all the water rights to the underground aquifer. Lois says there's only one business left and super-speeds off to talk to that remaining business but returns to Clark stating she's sure Jor-El didn't give her the powers as a test of patience. Clark says if it was that test then she would fail. He puts on his glasses and grabs her hand, stating he's driving.
Clark is then seen in his disguise, looking at the business across the street, when Lois super-speeds up to him. Clark notices a bullet hole in her jacket and comments that all she was supposed to be doing was getting parmesan. Lois hands him a slice of cheese, a souvenir from Wisconsin, where she mentions having resolved a hostage situation. Clark wants to know how she found out about it and Lois tells him that the hostage situation was on the television behind the food clerk's counter. She tells Clark she now understands his outfit that he wears since she's broken an innumerable amount of heels that day. Clark tells her she needs to be more careful and Lois comments that she's almost certain the "Burgandy Blur" has pulled off her rescues without a hitch.
Clark notices the store they're watching is closing in the middle of the day and starts teaching Lois how to use his powers, starting with super hearing. Lois hears too many noises, so Clark tells her to focus on one thing only, which she does, hearing screams for help. Clark asks her where it's coming from, she replies she doesn't know. Lois listens, then tells Clark it's a kitchen fire, and that they are calling 911. Clark tells her there's a fire station not too far from it and tells her to ignore it. She hears a car accident and starts to leave, but Clark grabs her arm and tells her to keep listening. She hears the people exchanging information. Lois sits down and states she never knew that he had to ignore so much. Clark tells her he doesn't ignore it, just prioritizes. After another moment, Lois focusses again and hears someone attacking a woman. Lois rushes to the rescue of the hostage, arriving and throwing the robber into a wall, knocking them out. Clark arrives, stepping forward and taking the mask off the robber, revealing it to be none other than Courtney Whitmore.
Kara and Oliver are still searching for the Bow of Orion, seeing more symbols along the way, Kara translates them, they then enter a room which has a door with a target symbol above it. Oliver clears away the fauna to find that the door has no handle. They start to look around and find another two symbols in the floor like the one Kara got trapped in previously. In the distance they see the symbol of the archer and the Omega symbol again. Kara realizes that they have to hit the symbols while standing on the corresponding ones, and activate them simultaneously, so they don't get trapped.
Oliver pulls out one of his large extendable bows and hands it to Kara, who looks at him strangely. He tells her it's easier than it looks, just aim and shoot. He then takes out another bow for himself. Kara asks Oliver if he really trusts her to do it, and he reiterates what she said earlier; Clark trusts her, so he does too. They both line up the shot. Oliver tells her "Now" and they release their arrows at the exact same time. The arrows cross over one another, bounce off the symbols, and land directly in the center of the target symbols carved into the stone above the door, whereas it slides open.
Oliver tells her "Nice shooting" and she tells him the same. Just as they both step towards the door, Kara hunches over in pain as a sharp ringing goes off in her head. Oliver asks if she's okay and she tells him it's Jor-El, he's calling to her and she has to leave to see him now. She hands the bow to Oliver and tells him he has to retrieve the bow and get it to Clark. She tells him she's trusting him now and then super-speeds off.
In the Fortress of Solitude, Kara demands to know Jor-El why he called her, annoyed that he interrupted her during her mission to retrieve the bow for Clark. Jor-El answers, saying that the bow is Kal-El's quest, not her own. She argues and states that he's the one who told her to protect Kal-El, but now he's telling her otherwise. Jor-El states that this battle has to be Clark's. He tells her that he's called Kara to the Fortress because she now has two destinies for herself and has to make a choice. She is confused until he tells her that she has the option of leaving Kal-El and allowing him to achieve his destiny, as he is supposed to, or she can stay and help him, which will risk the future of Earth. She points out that she and Kal-El have fought Darkside together before, but Jor-El states that she involved Kal-El against his wishes. Jor-El states that back when that happened, Kal-El was too weak and was almost overcome by the darkness. Jor-El points out that Kara is strong and no longer needs his help and that she will need that strength to forge her own path, but she has to make the choice.
Kara is shocked because she realizes that Jor-El just wants her to walk away from Kal-El and his upcoming battle. He tells her that her destiny has already been written and it's in another place and another time. He states that the upcoming battle is Kal-El's and his alone. He knows that a time is coming soon where Kal-El will turn away from him too, but Kal-El will make the right decision in the end because it's his time and he's ready to embrace his destiny. Kara answers that Clark is her only family left and she needs to at least warn him. Jor-El tells her that sometimes the greatest sacrifice is when someone has to give up what they hold the dearest.
Tess Mercer is looking at the device which allowed the Marionette Ventures to control Courtney Whitmore. They discover that the mastermind behind the device is none other than the Toyman. Lois super-speeds to where Toyman is jailed. Toyman threatens that if she doesn't do as he says, he won't call off his men who are on their way to kill Clark.
Lois checks how much time is left until Clark will have his powers back. Not wanting Clark to be harmed, Lois agrees to do Toyman's bidding. Toyman tells Lois to put on the mind-control device. She does, which places her under the control of Toyman, who then commands her to kill The Blur.
Oliver has entered the room containing the Bow of Orion. He steps forward to take it and banish Darkseid from Earth, which will in turn release him from the Omega Symbol. But as he puts out a hand to take it, Granny Goodness arrives and telepathically pulls the bow towards her, grabs it and destroys the bow while Oliver yells "No!". Granny Goodness then starts teasing Oliver. Swearing he will find a way to destroy her, she telepathically forces Green Arrow to kneel. Granny Goodness then begins preparing Oliver to become a minion of Darkseid, making the darkness inside Oliver corrupt him.
A screen turns on while 6 people are seen listening to the Toyman, who tells them to open the folders in front of them which contains data on their targets.
Back at Watchtower, Clark wants to go look for Lois, who super-speeds in. He realizes she is wearing the mind-control device, and attempts to get her to resist, to no avail. Lois then throws him. Stepping forward, Lois strangles Clark. Tess tells Clark to hold on for 20 seconds longer. Lois snaps out of the mind-control when Clark tells her he loves her. She turns around, screaming in pain as she is once again placed under the control of Toyman. Clark gets his powers back just in time, stops Lois' fist and grabs her as she struggles to regain control of herself. Lois faints and Clark attempts to wake her up.
Toyman is on the phone talking to members of his gang when Clark suddenly arrives, surprising Toyman and crushing his phone. In response, Toyman threatens to tell the whole world who Clark really is, to which Clark says that if he wanted, Toyman would have already done it. Clark then tells Toyman that he will always be there to stop him, after which Clark super-speeds off.
Clark returns to the Fortress of Solitude for the last time. He tells Jor-El that no matter whether he's Jor-El's son or Jonathan Kent's son, there will be a time when neither of them will be able to guide him anymore, and that time is now. He tells Jor-El that he knew it was a trial and not a gift. Stepping to the console, Clark turns off the Fortress of Solitude. Clark then says a last goodbye and super-speeds out. The Superman costume is shown.
Lois is shown playing with her engagement ring when Clark arrives wondering if she is all right. They embrace. Kara secretly watches from outside Watchtower, crying. She then dons her Legion ring, wishes Clark well, and travels to the future.
Lois tells Clark that she let Winslow control her to save him, because he's her greatest weakness. She worries that she might be his greatest weakness, but Clark assures Lois that she's his greatest strength, and Jor-El is part of his past now. Before they leave to join the others for dinner, Lois emotionally tells Clark she can't marry him because she believes herself to be stealing time when people need to be saved. She holds him while Clark stands stunned.

- If Tess' coordinates for the Bow of Orion are correct, 55°14'27 N -6°30'42 W, this places the bow's location in Feigh Mountain, Ireland.
- This is the first of John Corben's four appearances (Savior, Metallo and Upgrade) in which he is actually referred to as "Metallo".
- When the front of John Corben is shown, in Upgrade Lois gives him a red kryptonite heart, but in this episode he has a green heart again. The reason for this is explained in Valkyrie.

Homage To Previous Seasons
- Lois: Wow. So, how does one ask for permission to marry on Krypton?
- Clark: The last time that Kara was in town, she told me, in Kryptonian culture, the head of the house has to approve all life unions.
- Lois: "Life unions"? Will you stop being so romantic?
- Jor-El: Kal-El, my son, you have returned.
- Clark: Jor-El, I come here today as a Kryptonian, as a member of your house, and your son. In honor of our home, I'm here to declare my desire to start a life bond with this woman...Lois Lane.
- Jor-El: Lois Lane, do you truly intend to initiate a life union with my son?
- Lois: I do.
- Jor-El: Your pledge is observed. If your lives are to be joined, then you must both understand.
- Oliver: I'm starting to regret not packing my intergalactic dictionary about now. No way these are Celtic.
- Kara: No. They're Apokolyptian.
- Oliver: (sees Kara trapped in a ray beam) You're Clark's cousin, Kara, right?
- Kara: Yeah.
- Oliver: How long have you been down here? I got to get you out.
- Kara: No, wait. It'll kill you. (throws a rock at the ray beam, rock disintegrates)
- Oliver: Right. Okay. There's got to be some way to turn off this death ray from hell.
- Kara: How did Watchtower find me? I haven't checked in for weeks.
- Oliver: Well, I hate to break it to you, but I'm part of a search party. I just came here to f... Find...
- Kara: The Bow of Orion.
- Oliver: Yeah. What do you know about it?
- Kara: You're looking for it, without Clark?
- Oliver: So are you, apparently.
- Kara: I have my reasons.
- Oliver: So do I.
- Kara: Mine have to do with protecting Clark. Who are you here to save?
- Oliver: Right now, you're topping my list. You say you can read this stuff?
- Kara: It's a prophecy about the return of Darkseid written by the hunter himself. When I touched Orion's symbol, this trap was sprung.
- Oliver: You say this is a prophecy.
- Kara: Yes. One that heralds the end of the world.
- Oliver: Naturally. What's the rest of it say? Can you read anything else?
- Kara: That a balance must exist between light and darkness, and to wield the bow's power and save the world, hands must first right the scales' two sides.
- Oliver: "Hands must first right the scales' two sides." If this guy Orion was so concerned about balancing everything out, maybe we just need to add one side of the scale.
- Kara: No. I'd consider that, but the Omega is the symbol of darkness, of the enemy.
- Oliver: So I've heard. I'm just thinking that if I touch it, maybe a balance will be struck. Or we could be stuck down here for centuries. Your call.
- Kara: Clark trusts you. I suppose that's enough for me.
- Clark: Lois, I don't think Jor-El did what he did for you to get ahead at the office.
- Lois: Clark, we were able to cover our deadline for the wedding day, the day after the wedding day, and the day after the day after the wedding day. Look, I know it's hard go all four-alarm fire on this thing, but Jor-El's intentions might have been good.
- Clark: You can't honestly believe that. By taking away my powers, he's made me vulnerable, and you...
- Lois: Like 800% more awesome then yesterday? (types super fast on her computer, the keyboard snaps in half) Okay, maybe 700% more. Maybe Jor-El wanted me to know what it felt like to be you.
- Clark: I'm not so sure, Lois. In his own warped way, I think he's trying to tell us something about our relationship.
- Lois: We're as bulletproof as your -- my skin.
- Lois: Maybe Jor-El wanted to teach us a little something about patience.
- Clark: Well, if he did, you're about to fail. I'm driving.
- Lois: Also, I have a whole new appreciation for your jacket-and-boots thing. The number of heels I have broken super-stretching my legs today is out of control.
- Clark: I'm happy that you have a new found appreciation for my wardrobe, but today of all days, I need you to be more careful.
- Lois: Well, I'm almost 50% certain that the Burgundy Blur pulled it all off without a hitch.
- Clark: This is when I would use my super-hearing -- to listen in on the Marionette boys to see how they operate.
- Lois: Right, and a big part of that is the squinty head tilt, yes?
- Clark: Apparently.
- Oliver: So let me get this straight -- whoever wields the Bow of Orion can use it to vanquish darkness. Is that what you're saying?
- Kara: According to the prophecy, yeah.
- Oliver: Well, that's me. Think about it -- a bow, right? The medium is the message.
- Kara: You never told me why you were seeking it.
- Oliver: Well, promise you won't tell anyone, but I'm trying to change my fate. The Bow of Orion is the key. It worked for him, right?
- Kara: Only after he found the strength to turn away from the darkness, even though that meant turning away from his father.
- Oliver: Orion is Darkseid's son.
- Kara: Yes. He was raised by someone who believes in spreading the light instead of the darkness his birthfather created. And eventually he swore to serve that light instead.
- Jor-El: There are two paths laid before you, Kara. You can leave Earth now and allow Kal-El to embrace his destiny, or you can stay and help him, risking the future of this planet.
- Kara: Kal-El and I have fought Darkseid before.
- Jor-El: You involved Kal-El against my wishes. He was too weak then, and he was almost overcome by darkness. You have grown strong. Your will is no longer at the mercy of my command. You will need that strength to forge your own path. It is in your hands to choose.
- Kara: You want me to just walk away?
- Jor-El: Kara, your own destiny is written. It is in another place and time. But this is Kal-El's battle, and he must fight it alone. Even though the time will come when he turns away from me, in the end, he will make the right decision. He is ready. This is his time.
- Kara: He's the only family I have left. I have to at least warn him.
- Jor-El: Sometimes the greatest sacrifice a person can make is to give up what they hold most dear.
- Oliver: (reading off the Bow of Orion) "The only true power comes from within."
- Granny Goodness: How deliciously selfish of you to want the bow just so you could remove the stain we put on your soul. (destroys the bow)
- Oliver: No!
- Granny Goodness: Thank you. You see, those traps we designed to keep the prophets out. Orion's bow was a light like the world will never see again. It's been the one power that Darkseid could not defeat.
- Oliver: I will find a way somehow to defeat you.
- Granny Goodness: From the moment you were marked, you've been serving him. But you're not like the rest of your brethren. You've got real potential, and we've got bigger plans for you. Don't worry, dear. You won't remember any of this.
- Toyman: What's to say I just don't tell the whole world who you really are?
- Clark: Something tells me if you really wanted to, you already would have. But then, we wouldn't be able to play anymore, would we? No matter how many of you band together, what games you decide to play, I'll always be there to stop you.
- Jor-El: Kal-El, I trust you found my gift to the both of you illuminating.
- Clark: It wasn't a gift. It was a trial. And it wasn't about Lois appreciating what it was like to have my abilities or me realizing what it was like to be human. It was about control.
- Jor-El: Your trials are not a riddle, Kal-El. They are stepping stones on a long path.
- Clark: A path that I have blindly walked forever, but I understand now. This whole time, it's been up to me to decide when to take control of my own destiny. The trials end when I'm ready for them to end.
- Jor-El: Your journey is far from over.
- Clark: But I can only be what the world needs when I can finally admit that I am no longer just the son of Jor-El or Jonathan Kent. And you knew the time would come when neither of you can guide me anymore, and that time...is now. Goodbye, Jor-El.
- Lois: I was so weak, Clark. You know, the very moment that Toyman threatened you, I put on that diode, and I let him control me...because you're my greatest weakness. And I'm afraid that I will be yours.
- Clark: You're not my weakness. You're my strength. Okay? And I'm sorry that Jor-El dragged you into one of my trials, but it's over. Jor-El is as much a part of my past as the farm. My destiny is marrying you and for us to create our own future together. Come on, everyone's waiting.
- Lois: Clark, I'm sorry. After today, I realized that us being together makes you vulnerable. And I -- I can't just sit and watch a movie and eat ice cream, when at that very moment you could be saving five people. Clark, every moment of your life that I take for myself, I am stealing from people that need to be saved.
- Clark: Lois, what are you saying?
- Lois: (takes off ring) I'm s--
- Clark: What is this?
- Lois: (crying) I'm sorry, Clark.
- Clark: No.
- Lois: I can't marry you.
