The third season of Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman
gets under way as "Daily Planet" reporter Clark Kent (Dean Cain
) finally proposes to his sexy co-worker Lois Lane (Teri Hatcher
). Imagine Clark's surprise when, upon preparing to reveal to Lois his true identity as the "Man of Steel" Superman, Lois bluntly informs him that she's already tumbled to his secret -- and that she is rather miffed that he hasn't told her earlier. A wedding date is set, only to be "un-set" by the unexpected reappearance of Superman's arch-enemy, Lex Luthor (John Shea
). This traumatic experience causes Lois to lose her memory, not to mention her affections for Clark. By season's end, however, Lois is back to her normal self, and the wedding is rescheduled. Perhaps inevitably, though, another interruption occurs: this time, Clark/Superman must rescue several other refugees from the long-extinct planet Krypton from a deadly peril on their new home planet -- and among the rescuees is Zara (Justine Bateman), who had been Superman's predesignated bride back when he was "Kal-El of Krypton."
