Synopsis for "The House of Kent Part Two"

Lois and Jimmy were investigating the house previously used by the Invisible Mafia as a secret hideout, but they are attacked by Red Cloud, who tries to kill Jimmy because she believes that killing Lois would be too risky. Fortunately, Lois manages to utter the word "Smallville", which Superman listens to with his super-hearing all the way from the Kent farm. Realizing his wife is in danger, Superman asks Jon and Conner for assistance in dealing with his threat and the Kent boys agree to follow him.

The Kent men arrive at the Invisible Mafia's old house, where Jon and Conner finally come across the Red Cloud and Superman informs them of her connection to the Invisible Mafia, while Jimmy deduces that Red Cloud is actually Robinson Goode, their co-worker at the Daily Planet. Red Cloud attempts to poison them with her gas but the Kent men use their super-breath to disperse her. Jon asks why can't the Kents inhale her the Red Cloud, and Superman answers that Red Cloud is composed of a substance harmful even to Kryptonians. Meanwhile, Lois is shocked that Jimmy was unable to deduce that Clark was Superman even after knowing him for years, but he was able to deduce that Robinson was Red Cloud after knowing for just a month. Jimmy says that Red Cloud looked and sounded just like Robinson and admits that he still can't picture Clark as Superman.

Lois informs the group the house and Jimmy were investigating was used by the Invisible Mafia as a hideout and was even equipped with a lead-lined pipe to keep Superman from peeking, but Leone, the leader of the Invisible Mafia, has ordered the deaths of her fellow Invisible Mafia captains and used their bodies to lead Superman into a trap. Suddenly, Red Cloud attempts to suffocate Jon, but Superman dissipates her yet again.

The police arrives and Superman realizes while he has been busy with Luthor, Leviathan and S.T.A.R. Labs, the Invisible Mafia has been taking advantage of his distractions in an attempt to destroy him; but now, the time has come for him and his allies to shut the Invisible Mafia down. Lois asks who Conner is, saying that he looks like if Superman and Luthor had a baby, and Superman admits that Conner is hard to explain but he is family. He then goes to tell the cops what happened.

Meanwhile, the Red Cloud meets up with Leone at her secret headquarters at downtown Metropolis. Leone says that Red Cloud's attack on Superman's son wasn't such a good idea. Anyone who retreat upon watching their children threatened, but Superman is a powerful enemy and now, he's more determined than ever to destroy the Invisible Mafia. Red Cloud insists that they fight dirtier than they have done before, but Leone replies that such a method may not work now that Superman isn't playing by his old rules anymore. Suddenly, one of Leone's bodyguards informs that the Black Label club has been invaded.

One hour ago, a group of drug dealers were having a meeting at the back room of the Black Label. Suddenly, Clark walked into the room and tells everyone to get out, as their operations have been shut down. One of the drug dealers ignores him and shoots him, but the bullets bounce off Clark's body, causing everyone in the room to realize who they are talking to. As everyone flees from the Black Label, Superman and his allies confiscate everything inside and Jon uses Brainiac 5's newest invention, a miniaturizing gun called the "Kandor", to miniaturize the entire club.

In the present, the bodyguard shows the shrunken building to Leone and the Red Cloud and informs them that their clients, including the mayor of Metropolis, are in custody. Leone realizes Superman is serious about destroying the Invisible Mafia, so she orders Red Cloud to break him.

Meanwhile, Jimmy arrives at the Daily Planet and tries to tell Perry about Clark and Lois' recent activities against the Invisible Mafia, but he discovers the FBI confiscating everything that once belonged to Leone, causing him to believe that the Daily Planet will not be putting out a paper today.
