Synopsis for "Tomorrow"
Years have past. Clark and Lois have established successful careers. Their daughters, Jane and Carol kent visit them on Christmas where they celebrate. Clark and Lois both realize that Clark's powers are fading. He now has to concentrate hard to utilize his powers, compared to when he was in his youth and it was more natural to him.
Over time Clark becomes more comfortable with Agent Malloy. However, he still keeps his distance from him, remembering the time he was captured by the same people. Agent Malloy implies that the government doesn't need him as badly as before, that they had agents who were easier to control. This intrigues Clark, who decides to learn more about his past and if there are other super-powered beings. Clark learns of government research of superpowers and concludes that meteor strikes in Kansas when he was young somehow gave him his powers. Clark and Lois then worry about their children and if what Clark had could be passed on. At first they test their daughters with lifting heavy things, or asking them questions, but they quickly stop. Their daughters eventually reveal themselves to their parents, confessing that their powers had developed in their teens.
On another meeting with Agent Malloy, Malloy reveals that he had known Clark's real identity all along, but out of respect for him, decides not to report it. Malloy tells Clark that he can "retire" from working with the government and that while he won't receive a medal, his country thanks him. He also says that the incident with the laboratory happened before his appointment to the taskforce, and while he can't guarantee it, he likes to believe he would have done things differently.
Years later, Clark now lives in a world where people with super-powers coexist with society. Because of this, there have been many advancements in medical and technological sciences and have developed things like flying cars. Clark has published his book, which entails his research on metahumans and his origins, still careful to omit him and his family. Carol is still dating around while Jane has had children of her own, jokingly naming them Clark, Jimmy, and Perry. Retired, and now serene with his life, he sometimes flying with daughters and Jane's oldest, Perry. He finds himself watching a lot of sunsets.
