Lois is back at the Talon apartment for some strange reason, getting ready for bed and looking very pleased with herself. She climbs into bed with a smile. As soon as her eyes close, though, she gets a disjointed vision of the future. The images include a silhouette of Clark wearing the Zod symbol, fiery skies and destroyed buildings, Lois and Clark getting it on, a woman (maybe Tess?) kneeling and getting bestowed with a Kryptonian dog tag, another woman (Alia) unsheathing a sword, something being buried or unearthed, blood-drenched hands (from a Lois POV, it would seem), Oliver with a shovel under a red sun, Chloe running, and then Chloe lying seemingly dead on the ground. All the while, voices whisper Zod's name. Lois sits up in bed with a gasp. How many of these images will make sense by the end of the season? How many will be retconned or forgotten? Place your bets now!
