In fall 2020, Martha Kent passed away from a stroke and Lana attended the funeral along with her family. They then met the Kent family once more, introducing his husband and daughters to the Kent twins again. She then left with Kyle and the Kent parents to their house. She then talked to them about the changes on Smallville over the years and how people had left the town. Kyle then started to argue with Lois regarding the true intentions of Morgan Edge, who took over the Daily Planet and fired Clark. Kyle then brought Martha's choice to sell the house for money and left with Lana telling the Kents to go to her bank.
The next day, Clark and Lois arrived to the bank and talked about Martha's choice of selling the farm in order for the money for the Kent twins to go to college. She then gave Clark and Lois time to consider the deal, with them choosing to move to the farm instead of selling it the following day and suspected the reason why Morgan Edge is interested in a small town in Kansas.
