What I’m Watching: Superman and Lois

Superman and Lois: Season 3, Episode 4 “Too Close to Home” (B)

This season is really setting Cobb up as the big bad, with him taking unnecessary action to intimidate John after he went to meet with his sister of this world and then had to go save her because her life was in danger. That bomb-disarming was quite down to the wire, and he would have been devastated by a lot of guilt if it hadn’t worked. Lois deciding to sign up for treatment at Cobb’s hospital was a bold move that doesn’t speak well to her desire to actually get serious about her cancer, though he seems like the type who wouldn’t directly sabotage her care and instead try to get at her in a more nefarious way. It was interesting to see Clark opt to deal with Candice’s father not as Superman but as Clark, though I’m not sure exactly what kind of message it sends to utilize violence to show that violence isn’t the answer. Everyone got a chance to be featured in this episode, with Sam getting upset when Jordan didn’t want to get a haircut or take him seriously, and Kyle confronting Sarah about how she didn’t give him all the information when she said that her mother just slapped her. I do like this world and following these characters, but I’m not sure this is a show that I absolutely need to be watching. With so much on these days and this show no longer connected to the Arrowverse, I may feel comfortable ducking out and returning at a later date.
