Through the season premiere, Chrissy and Kyle find yourself in mattress collectively the morning after Jonathan and Jordan Kent’s sixteenth party, the place that they had a short heart-to-heart about their private lives. The hook-up is made much more awkward attributable to the truth that Chrissy is at Kyle’s when his ex-wife, Lana Lang, arrives to ship signed divorce papers. (Lang by no means sees Beppo, although).

The second episode of this season, “Uncontrollable Forces,” doesn’t transfer this specific story ahead an excessive amount of, as Chrissy and Kyle solely share one scene, by which they’re discussing a significant homicide on the town. This story will in all probability turn out to be extra distinguished because the season progresses, and I’m extremely curious to learn how others – particularly Lana Lang – react to it. Regardless of the stress that would come up there, although, I’m certain that amid Superman’s battle with Bruno Mannheim or the rise of our new Lex Luthor, this romantic subplot ought to deliver some levity and coronary heart to an already entertaining present.
