‘Superman & Lois’: Several Storylines to Get Excited About

It’s amazing how the Superman and Lois writers are balancing all of the different storylines. There’s a lot to juggle, and they are doing it so well.

There’s a great family story, but we are still getting intense action.

It’s slightly frustrating that this Luther (Wolé Parks) believes our Superman is evil like that one on his earth, but it presents a great villain. We did meet an evil Superman in an Arrowverse crossover, and he was pretty scary. But that doesn’t mean this one will turn out the same way.

Luther isn’t the only thing that’s testing Clark Kent (Tyler Hoechlin). Balancing fatherhood and his Superman duties are quite a challenge, especially when he has a stalker. And figuring out Jordan’s (Alex Garfin) abilities won’t be as easy as he hoped.

Maybe Jordan’s abilities manifest differently. There has never been a half Kryptonian and half-human before. I don’t believe that Jordan has sudden bursts of power twice and won’t have them again. It appears that strong emotions bring on his powers. That’s probably a good place to start.

I love that Jonathan (Jordan Elsass) wants to help him discover his powers. They have an amazing bond, but of course, Jonathan isn’t adjusting well to the move. He had everything back in Metropolis, and this move means losing his QB1 spot and being away from his girlfriend. And because of the fight at the bonfire, it also means he’s on a team where the guys all hate him. It’s a huge sacrifice. But I’m glad they aren’t glossing over those sacrifices.

Lois Lane (Elizabeth Tulloch) had the most exciting storyline in “Heritage.” I’m going to enjoy these journalistic storylines. She’s got the scent of a great story, and she’s not letting go, even when Morgan Edge (Adam Rayner) rewrote her article into a fluff piece.

It was quite exhilarating watching her walk into her old office (did Clark fly her there?), walk up to Morgan, and quit. The assistant or whoever she was told he would destroy her. I think Lois Lane’s reputation speaks for itself. He can try, and I’m sure some gullible people will buy into his nonsense, as we see in Smallville, but my money’s on Lois.

I did not see Lois quitting The Daily Planet when the show started, but it wasn’t surprising after Morgan rewrote her piece. But if Clark doesn’t have a job and she’s taking a job at the local paper that is a one-woman show, how will they make any money? I hope they tackle this because otherwise, it will be a major plot hole.

Lois’s new boss is Chrissy Beppo (Sofia Hasmik). Chrissy was too afraid to introduce herself to her idol Lois and kept looking creepy until Lois went to her. I loved it when Lois sat down and was like, “can I help you?”

In the pilot, we saw Lois stand up for her father, the General, so she’s not afraid to confront anyone as she did with Morgan at the press conference and his conference room. Lois is probably the only woman that can handle being married to Superman because she doesn’t let anyone walk all over her.

It will be interesting to see how she tackles stories from a small local paper with no staff. As long as they keep her fierce and chasing after the truth, I’m all for it.

What did you think of the second episode of Superman & Lois? And, did you hear, we’re getting a second season? Tweet me @MandyTTCarr or comment below.
