The General and Lucy Lane decide to drop in on Lois and Clark for a surprise Thanksgiving dinner. Clark and the General get off to a rocky start after Lois' father bashes the superheroes and tells Clark he is trying to pass a vigilante registration law.

Meanwhile, in an effort to stop the vigilante registration act from being passed, Rick Flagg  lies to Lucy in order to lure Clark away from the farm long enough for him to assassinate the General. Lois is torn between making her father proud and her love for Clark.

Trivia: The General says that he's put all of the guys that Lois has dated the series of tests he puts Clark through. Apparently he never got around to Oliver Queen or Grant Gabriel.

  • Clark is the first boyfriend Lois has had that she stood up to the General for. Sam explains this to Clark in the barn, citing that that's how he realized that she loved Clark. She'd never said a word to him about any of them before, further proof that Clark is the one she's supposed to be with.
  • Oliver decides that his visit to the Watchtower will be his last, since people are watching his every move now that he has revealed his identity to the world.
  • Lois actually cooked a home-cooked meal for Thanksgiving that was good. All previous meals she cooked were a disaster, to the point where even Shelby wouldn't eat it in Season Nine's Persuasion.
  • Clark reveals to Sam Lane that while he lives at the farm by himself, his mother's name is still the primary name on the deed to the house.
  • Sam's treatment of Clark when he first arrives is similar to the post-crisis relationship the two share. In the comics, Sam initially liked Clark but was later written as disapproving of Clark, referring to him as "Po-Dunk Farmboy" or a "Bumbling fool." Though Lois is usually able to mediate the two nowadays, they continue to bash heads.
