Synopsis for "The Sleepers (Part III)"
Ursa awakens inside the Fortress of Solitude. Blind without her goggles, she fashions a blindfold for herself and comes upon the imprisoned sleeper agent Tor-An. Knowing that Tor-An knows too much to live, she executes him.
Meanwhile, Lor-Zod brings the dying Thara Ak-Var to Lois Lane and Clark's apartment. Lois calls upon the aid of Kimiyo Hoshi, aka Doctor Light, to help out. Doctor Light uses her powers to solar-charge Thara's Kryptonian cells in the hopes of stimulating her alien recuperative abilities. Lor-Zod then realizes that Ursa may still be alive and flies back to the Fortress.
General Sam Lane and his agents at Project 7734 track Lor-Zod's movements and realize where he is going. They fire missiles at the fortress and Lor-Zod takes to the air. He fires back at them with blasts of heat vision.
Meanwhile in New Paradise, Nevada, two more Kryptonian sleeper agents work as a veritable Bonnie & Clyde, knocking over banks. When the police arrive to arrest them, they kill them with blasts of heat vision.
