Anderson is definitely going to regret that, right?
Who in their right mind thinks it’s a good idea to make an enemy out of Superman?
But that’s the problem with egos — they make you do some pretty non-sensical things to prove a point.
Anderson’s behavior never warranted Superman’s trust. Trust is something that needs to be earned, and at every turn, Anderson pushed back against Superman. And then he was surprised that Superman decided to operate on his own terms.
Anderson clearly has to be the problem considering Superman’s longstanding relationship with General Lane.
Of course, when Anderson felt like Superman was withholding information from him and not being forthcoming with Bizzaro’s location, he decided to try him for treason, which, again, seems like a poor decision.
It’s not like imprisoning Superman is going to make him crack. And time is running out to stop the real enemy – Ally Alston.
I love that Superman’s enemy is also his wife’s enemy. It’s really great when a husband and wife can put up a united front.
Ally is dangerous for all the reasons Lois listed in her expose, particularly, for being a cult leader, but if Bizzaro is to be believed, she’s also plotting something much more sinister.
Superman hoped to get the pendant from Anderson in order to destroy it so that Ally can’t use it. According to Bizzaro, the pendent elevates her to god status and allows her to merge with her other self, which, in turn, can send them all into oblivion.
It seems like a credible threat.
Never trust a lady who thinks it’s okay to drug people for the greater good.
If what Bizzaro is saying is true, Ally hasn’t lied to Lucy at all about the inverse, but she’s also not being completely honest about her plans either. And that means Lois is right — Lucy is definitely in danger. They all are.
It doesn’t seem like they’ll be able to stop Ally with Superman in custody, and I wonder if that means that the responsibility will fall squarely on Jordan’s shoulders.
There was plenty of sibling rivalry at the forefront of this episode.
Lucy and Lois tried to agree to disagree, but there’s just too much bad blood between them. Technically, they are both right, but they refuse to see the other side of the coin.
And, eventually, Lucy is either going to get dragged down with Ally, or she’s going to admit that Lois has had her back this whole time.
I hope it’s the latter because it was nice to see their sisterly bonding for the first time ever.
Meanwhile, Jordan and Jonathan butted heads over their powers. Jordan was geeked when he found out that Jon’s powers came in, but when his brother kept pushing him away at every turn, he realized something was definitely off.
When he saw the inhaler, he was suspicious, but the rumors about Timmy huffing X-Kryptonite confirmed his fears.
Jon turned into a worse version of himself when Jordan confronted him about it, which was deeply upsetting. Jordan never asked to be the “chosen one” with powers, and he simply wanted the best for his brother, yet Jon can’t accept feeling inferior.
The fact that Timmy was caught and the police are involved is concerning for Jonathan, especially since it seems like most people know he’s been using performance enhancing drugs.
And the fact that he basically cheated his way into a win takes away all the joy of actually winning. He didn’t “earn it” like his father pointed out, and that’s disappointing.
I strongly believe Jon is going to get him powers one of these days, so I’m hoping that happens!
There was no word about John Henry Lyons, but I’m hoping that he survives the whole ordeal and comes out stronger for the final battle against Ally.
Also, did anyone catch that in Bizzaro’s inverse, Lana was some kind of superhero?!
In real life, she’s also one but without the costume.
Lana dealt with the fallout of Kyle’s cheating, and while it was heartbreaking, she knew that this was the moment to really figure out how to move forward.
Should she forgive him? Can she forgive him? Can she move on and pretend like it never happened?
I definitely think that Lana likely would’ve given Kyle a second chance if she hadn’t spoken with Tonya. However, her chat with the “mistress” made her realize that Kyle only stopped the affair after Sarah’s accident.
If she hadn’t almost died, it’s likely that Kyle would’ve continued on with his cheating with zero regard for his family.
And he also did it to save his family but no necessarily his marriage.
It’s not something any woman wants to admit to herself, but it was important for Lana to finally make herself the main character in the narrative.
She has always put her daughters and her husband first, and clearly, it’s time that she becomes her own priority.
I liked Lana and Kyle together, but there’s no coming back from cheating. What’s done is done. If Lana finds it in her heart to forgive him somewhere down the line, that’s fine, but right now, I think she’s making the best decision for herself and for her girls. It was the scariest decision to make, but man, she took back so much of her power.
Kyle made his bed, now he has to lie in it. I always hated that phrase, but it is what it is.
Kyle started off as a pretty one-dimensional character, but it’ll be interesting to see him actually work on himself and find a way to fit himself into their lives.
As for Lana, I can’t wait to see what’s next for her. A part of me wants her to know the truth about Clark simply because it sucks that he’s her best friend yet she’s kept in the dark. It’s about time people started being honest to her — she’s the heart of Smallville.

‘Superman & Lois’ Season 3 Trailer Teases a Pregnancy and Reveals New Jonathan
Superman & Lois is gearing up for its third season to take flight.
It was previously announced that the season would land on The CW on March 14, but now, the network is giving fans a first look at what’s to come.
The most shocking development that’s revealed mere seconds into the trailer? Lois (Bitsie Tulloch) informs Clark Kent (Tyler Hoechlin) that she might be pregnant. As you can imagine, he’s a little befuddled and overwhelmed, considering that he carries the weight of the world on his very strong and muscular shoulders. The teaser also reveals that Lois is taken hostage, with Superman leaving her behind because “lives were at stake.” Will she miscarry after going through a traumatic experience?
Elsewhere, fans are given the first look at the new Jonathan Kent played by Australian actor Michael Bishop, who is taking over the role following Jordan Elsass’ departure. Jonathan will seemingly help his brother, Jordan (Alex Garfin), explore his powers.
The official synopsis explains that season 3 kicks off “weeks after Superman’s blowout defeat of Ally Allston. Clark and Lois are now working at the Smallville Gazette together and enjoying small town life. But the Kents’ romantic bliss only shines a light on how isolating ‘the secret’ can be, as Chrissy struggles to balance a new love interest and her friendship with Lois. However, Lois’ own work-life balance is put to the test when an undercover assignment reveals a deadly foe that promises to change the Kent family forever. Superman would move heaven and earth for his family, but with a villain this merciless, even that might not be enough.
“Meanwhile, the Kent boys find themselves being pulled in opposite directions as Jordan discovers what a superhero-identity really means and Jonathan searches for purpose beyond the football field. Amid all this upheaval, John Henry is haunted by his doppelgänger’s past, leading to dangerous consequences for him and Natalie. Lana Lang and Kyle redefine their family post-separation, while Sarah explores what the future holds for her and Jordan now that she knows the truth about his powers. Having learned the hard way that no one else can be trusted to work with Superman, General Samuel Lane reclaims his post at the Department of Defense, only to face his own conflict in working with his grandson, Jordan.”
Superman & Lois Season 3 Episode 1 will be titled “Closer.”

We Finally Know When ‘Superman & Lois’ Season 3 Is Flying Back to The CW
Superman & Lois finally has a third season premiere date—and we couldn’t be more thrilled.
The CW announced that the superhero series starring Tyler Hoechlin and Bitsie Tulloch, will grace our screens once again on Tuesday, March 14 at 8/7c.
Season 2 of the drama wrapped up in June 2022, so it’s a bit of a wait, but the good news is, we’re only about three months away from March, so it’ll be here before you know it.
The Superman & Lois premiere will be followed by the series premiere of Gotham Knights at 9 pm, though many fans have questioned if there is even a point in starting a new show when The CW has been canceling all of their programming. Some even considered that this may be the final season of S&L—this has not been confirmed by The CW at this point.
The CW, however, seems pretty confident in its action-packed block. “The new season of The CW’s biggest show Superman & Lois alongside our most exciting new series Gotham Knights will make Tuesdays a can’t-miss night of action,” says CW President Brad Schwartz, per TVLine. “With the iconic characters and gritty streets that everyone knows, fans will experience the best season yet of Superman & Lois and be introduced to a hunted group of crime fighters out for vengeance, following in Batman’s footsteps on Gotham Knights.”
The third season will focus on the titular characters facing off against Intergang head Bruno Manheim (Chad L. Coleman), who was introduced in the season 2 finale.
The new season picks up weeks after Superman’s defeat of Ally Alston, with the synopsis stating: “Clark and Lois are now working at the Smallville Gazette together and enjoying small town life. But the Kents’ romantic bliss only shines a light on how isolating “the secret” can be, as Chrissy struggles to balance a new love interest and her friendship with Lois. However, Lois’ own work-life balance is put to the test when an undercover assignment reveals a deadly foe that promises to change the Kent family forever. Superman would move heaven and earth for his family, but with a villain this merciless, even that might not be enough. Meanwhile, the Kent boys find themselves being pulled in opposite directions as Jordan discovers what a superhero-identity really means and Jonathan searches for purpose beyond the football field. Amid all this upheaval, John Henry is haunted by his doppelgänger’s past, leading to dangerous consequences for him and Natalie. Lana Lang and Kyle redefine their family post-separation, while Sarah explores what the future holds for her and Jordan now that she knows the truth about his powers. Having learned the hard way that no one else can be trusted to work with Superman, General Samuel Lane reclaims his post at the Department of Defense, only to face his own conflict in working with his grandson, Jordan.”
Fans will also notice that the role of Jonathan Kent has been recast following Jordan Elsass’s exit earlier this year. The role will now be played by Michael Bishop.
Superman & Lois Season Finale Review – Waiting for Superman (2×15)
Superman may have been rendered powerless, but it was never going to keep him down for long.
The world’s savior went to great lengths to restore his abilities on Superman & Lois Season 2 Episode 15 because, without him, Ally Alston and her lesser-half would have likely completed the merge and destroyed both worlds as we know it.
Everyone did their best to save the planet, but no one was as powerful or as skilled as Superman.
Now, that’s not to say that they didn’t hold things down until he recharged either.
Hope is a powerful thing when you have nothing left. While it would have been easy for everyone to just give up and accept their fate, that’s not the kind of approach that creates heroes.
Tal decided to make up for all the damage that he did in the past — including his attempt to also destroy the world — by trying to save it this time.
When he quickly learned that he was foolish for thinking he could ever be a match for the all-powerful Ally, Jordan lent a hand and saved his life. And honestly, it was impressive considering Jordan is just coming into his powers.
Nat and John Henry were also willing to sacrifice everything for the greater good as the former followed her father into the void to help stop Ally.
Since John Henry’s message from the void came through a bit choppy, Nat didn’t realize that her father wanted her to bring X-K into the pod, so they improvised and depleted all the energy from their exosuits to power the pod and allow it to blow up Ally’s tether between world’s, which left them powerless.
Thankfully, at that exact moment, Superman gained full power by throwing himself directly into the sun (talk about a sunburn) to recharge his cells.
It may have been an extreme measure, but it was once that effectively allowed him to save both worlds from Ally’s madness.
And everyone, even Ally’s devoted followers, were grateful for it.
There’s something so captivating about apocalyptic shows and storylines, and Superman & Lois approached it with a fresh take as we saw the worlds bleeding into each other.
Lois was sadly pulled into the Bizarro world and never blipped out, which was terrifying and lonely. She encountered a few people along the way, including her father and Kyle, who all made it back to their worlds eventually. Kyle, in particular, felt as though this was karma for cheating on Lana and breaking up the family, which was heartbreaking. Yes, he may have made some bad choices, but no one deserves to be alone and scared.
I was worried that Lois would end up stranded in the Bizarro version of Smallville when she was standing on the street all alone, but thankfully, that wasn’t the case.
Once Superman regained his abilities, everything we back to normal.
Kyle, unfortunately, didn’t get his happy ending. When you’re on the verge of losing someone, it puts a lot of things into perspective. While Lana spent much of her “final moments” looking for Kyle, who blipped out into the other reality, it made her realize that she’s not over the hurt he caused her and likely never would be. Admittedly, I was a little stunned by this realization as I thought it would help them patch things up, but I acknowledge that Lana has enough self-respect to stand her ground and follow her gut.
It would make it a lot easier to forgive Kyle and reconcile the family, but if she’s not ready to trust him, it won’t make either of them happy in the long run. Sometimes, there’s no going back to how things were, there’s just moving forward, and at least these two are mature enough to remain friends and co-parent.
Superman’s identity is still the world’s biggest secret, but the circle of people who are privy to it has grown just a smidge. Of course, Lana and Sarah are both aware, but Lois also confided in Chrissy, who was completely floored by the realization. As a journalist, you’d think she would put two and two together or see the resemblance, but she was sure that Lois was kidding at first.
The way she stared at Clark Kent after was hilarious. But I’m glad she’s in the circle of trust. After Lois visited the Bizarro world, we learned that Chrissy is a good person on every planet. She’s someone you can trust and confide in. Superman’s secret has come between her and Lois one too many times, and if they are going to work together, she deserves to know. Why is this the only moment that made me truly emotional?
I’m happy that the series arrived at the point where all the people that have always deserved to know the truth about Superman are finally clued in.
The world may have been ending, but it also gave Sarah a lot of time to process. When she finally had a moment to talk to Jordan about it, they both acknowledged that there wasn’t one issue that led to their failed romance — it was on both of them. Sarah never thought about Jordan’s feelings, while Jordan never shared his feelings with Sarah. They weren’t ready to give everything up just yet, but they were ready to press “reset” and start over. And opening up that line of communication will make a world of difference for them. Sarah won’t have to doubt if Jordan is telling her the truth, and he won’t have to hide who he is or what he’s doing anymore. I’m excited for what their future holds! I’m also happy Sarah acknowledged the weight of the secret that Jordan had to carry.
Post-Armageddon, everyone decided to catch a break. The Lane family patched things up, which was so awesome. They finally got their Lucy back — not brainwashed by Ally. I’m surprised Lucy didn’t want to see Ally one last time to chew her out, but it’s for the best. Lois made the visit instead simply to understand if Ally ever accomplished her goal of feeling complete. The two Ally’s informed her that they did not, but I’ll be honest, there was something eerie about that whole interaction. It seemed as though Lois was feeling empty and wanting answers as to how to fill the void, and when the two Ally’s held hands, it made me think there was yet another part of the plan that they hadn’t tried yet.
Maybe I’m just being overly cautious about the whole situation because John Diggle arrived to introduce the next season’s new mystery/villain: Bruno Mannheim.
Burno is the Intergang crime boss and one of Superman’s enemies who dabbles in money launder and human trafficking. He’s also the man who killed this planet’s John Henry, and Diggle wants to know why.
There’s no better man for the job than John Henry! And after such a stellar season that really ramped things up in the final episode, I have full confidence in the writers for whatever they have planned next.
And it’s probably a good thing that Superman, clad in a hygge white chunky sweater, has rebuilt his fortress for his family. If this near-Armaggedon has taught us anything, it’s that dangers loom at every corner and they need to be able to find a place of solace, solitude, and safety.
Jordan needs somewhere to train, Jonathan deserves to get to know his grandmother and experience some of the super perks even without powers, and Lois, well, she deserves the world for enduring all that stress day-in-and-day-out.
Other sweet moments:
- Nat referring to Jon and Jordan as her “brothers” was everything. She finally found a place for herself here, and I hope the series hones in on this special relationship because Nat and John feel like natural inclusions in the superfamily.
- Tal turning over a new leaf, thanking and apologizing by getting the boys new trucks that Clark was absolutely against, and Tal looking for his wife in the other world.
- Also, Tal and Clark’s brotherly moment. The brother’s bond is strong! I’ll miss him!
