Plot Summary

Lois and Clark visit her uncle Mike's restaurant in South Metropolis and while being there, someone tries to put a fire in the restaurant. Clark witness what happens while Superman arrests the man. Lois and Clark start investigating the case and they discover that a new criminal organisation called Intergang, buys property in South Metropolis at very low prices. Superman tries to help but after an encounter with Martin Snell, the lawyer of Intergang, he is unable to do anything because of their threats against everyone he loves. He still finds a way to help when Lois gives him the idea to be in South Metropolis undercover, so Intergang will not know that Superman is there.

Meanwhile Mayson Drake, the prosecuting deputy district attorney assigned to the case, shows interest in Clark but she hates Superman for she sees him as a vigilante taking the law into his own hands. This interest makes Lois jealous of her and tries to keep Clark away from her, especially when Lois discovers that Mayson's ex boss is Bill Church, a man who she believes is the leader of Intergang but she has no proof.

Eventually, Lois and Clark work with Mayson and they manage to get Snell arrested but the moment he is ready to reveal who is the leader of Intergang, Church blows up the room killing him.
