What I’m Watching: Superman and Lois

Superman and Lois: Season 2, Episode 5 “Girl... You'll Be a Woman, Soon” (B)

It’s good to see that, even if they’re having severe issues with members of their own families, Sarah and Jordan are in a good place at the moment in their relationship. I liked her response to him offering to massage her feet, and the quinceañera, all told, went pretty well. Lana seems to know about Kyle’s previous infidelity, and her support of him could be the crucial thing that the campaign needs to withstand Mayor Dean’s attacks. All of that pales in comparison to the gradually uniting other plotlines, which linked Ally and Dr. Faulkner together just before the other Superman apparently killed Dr. Faulkner. Learning that he is trying to save his world is an interesting development, and that coupled with Chrissy’s very intense experience in another world suggest that everything might soon be getting turned upside down for all our characters. It’s probably not the best time, therefore, for Jonathan to be developing powers without telling an adult, something that’s likely exacerbated and influenced, whether positively or negatively, by the drugs he’s been taking. The jealousy he’s feeling towards his brother is understandable because they’re teenagers, but he’s not being smart about what’s happening to him, and it’s likely going to result in someone getting seriously hurt. Hopefully Sam will pay close enough attention to realize before that happens, and him not being involved in active duty, coupled with Clark’s desire to keep him out of it, should leave him undistracted so that he can find a way to train both of his grandsons to assist their father when he needs them most.
