Not long after the incident in Nairomi, Clark returns home to see Lois in the bathtub and said he wanted to surprise her by cooking up something. When the subject shifts to the controversy surrounding his actions in Nairomi, Clark makes it clear that he didn't murder anyone and Lois herself could have been killed. After Clark proclaims his love, despite being fully-clothed he kisses her passionately and joins her in the tub.
The next day on the morning news, while cooking, Clark hears Kahina Ziri being interviewed regarding Superman, and she states that had Superman been in her presence she would ask him how he decides: "which lives count, and which ones do not?".
