Chloe (Allison Mack) trading herself for his freedom. Lois (Erica Durance) discovering Clark’s secret, being kidnapped by a Lex clone (Mackenzie Gray), then bolting to Africa after Clark saves her. And yes, you read correctly, a Lex clone. Several actually, including a young (and now only surviving) version of Lex, or Alexander as he is known (Jakob Davies), that Tess (Cassidy Freeman) decides to adopt.
