What I’m Watching: Superman and Lois

Superman and Lois: Season 2, Episode 12 “Lies That Bind” (B+)

Lana definitely did not take the news of Clark being Superman very well, but she did choose to take her frustrations out on Lois for seeking her out as a friend when that meant having to lie to her, not something that she said Clark couldn’t control when he found out he had powers as a kid. That news made Lois upset too, but, as usual, parenting and human drama can only take up so much space since there is an interdimensional crisis happening that threatens the stability of the entire universe. I like that we’re getting to see Tal have a chance to redeem himself, especially as his doppelganger met a rather grisly end which looked painful and only served to fortify Ally. For all that, John seemed relatively relaxed and had time to cook dinner for his daughter and the Kent boys, who are at least making decent use of their time while they’re skipping school and trying to stay away from those who might trigger them in some way. I have a feeling that Jordan is going to end up using his powers in front of Sarah and it’s not going to be well-received since he wasn’t the one to tell her, but for now she’s busy bonding with her father, which is a healthy thing, even though the way that he got her a platform to play her music was far too tied in to the affair he had that led to the breakup of his marriage.
