Clark discloses the Fortress of Solitude, his origin and abilities to Lana and proposes her. Clark tells Chloe that he has revealed his secret to Lana and Jonathan Kent wins the election to the Senate. But the happiest day of Clark's life ends when Lana dies in a car accident, and he summons the spirit of Jor-El and forces him to revert time.
