Synopsis

Strange events lead Lois to believe that librarian Lena Thorul is the reincarnation of a witch put to death in the seventeenth century. However, Superman learns that Lex Luthor is trying to scare Lois off because he fears that she may discover that Lena is Luthor's sister, and he doesn't want anyone to know -- not even Lena.
