Then, in the backup feature, the ΓÇ£Kent Family AlbumΓÇ¥, we will see how little Clark came to live with the Kents in ΓÇ£The Adoption.ΓÇ¥
Then weΓÇÖll close out the show with some aliens that are woken up from a deep sleep. One is evil and the other is not. How can we tell? Who is hiding the eggs? DoesnΓÇÖt that only happen on Easter?
Who is the ΓÇ£Fugitive from SpaceΓÇ¥?
And then Martha Kent and Clark are going to do something mundane but since Clark is with her, then it isnΓÇÖt going to be as mundane as it should.
