Synopsis for "Safe Harbor"
Lois Lane is working from home and is expecting company, but she is surprised and attacked by an O.M.A.C. unit. Lois rushes to find a futuristic fire-arm hidden in the bathroom, and laments that she had told her husband Superman that she didn't want to see him today.
24 hours earlier, Lois and Kelly the intern are caught in the rain on the way to meet a contact as Superman flies over head to confront the cause of the storm: The Weather Wizard. The Wizard distracts Superman by attacking Lois, and makes his escape, but not before admitting to being a part of the Secret Society. Superman disappears, but Clark Kent appears soon after. He expresses concern over Lois' meeting, which she believes will reveal information as to how the O.M.A.C.s are created. As usual, Lois plans to go anyway, but she is delayed by a jammed parking gate at the Daily Planet. This gives Clark the opportunity to meet the contact in her stead. The contact reveals that she was a scientist who helped to implant nanotechnology in civilians. She mentions that Maxwell Lord is involved, but they are interrupted by an angry Lois. Three O.M.A.C.s attack, and Clark sends the women away while he fights them off.
As the building they were in collapses, Lois is surprised to discover that the Superman who rescued her was actually Ned, the Superman Robot who had been impersonating Clark since the Weather Wizard's escape. Lois is enraged, and tells Ned to pass on a message to Clark that the marriage may not be worth the trouble anymore.
In the present, Lois evades the attacking O.M.A.C., and plans to defeat it by causing an explosion and hiding in a reinforced cabinet for protection. She recalls that the O.M.A.C. is actually Kelly the intern. As the apartment explodes, Superman arrives to find an unconscious Kelly and an unharmed Lois, who forgives him for the deception.
Elsewhere, Bizarro is seen retrieving the Blackrock from the interior of the sun, at the behest of Lex Luthor.
