Jordan’s Powers Help And Hinder In A Preview Of Next Week’s ‘Superman & Lois’
by Erik Amaya
Jordan’s (Alex Garfin) powers are going wild. And though he and Clark (Tyler Hoechlin) fly to the Fortress for a diagnosis, his superhearing continues to plague him. But will it prove helpful when Superman tries to confront the Stranger (Wolé Parks)? The following preview suggests it may aid the Kents even if it causes Jordan immense pain.
One thing last night’s episode reminded us, though, is that the show is about heightened emotions. Both Jordan and Jon (Jordan Elsass) feel the intense feelings of teenagers. They also express them in a way which may seem outsized, but we imagine any teens watching the show get exactly why Jordan is on the verge of tears all the time and why Jon vacillates between being Jordan’s greatest supporter and his arch-rival.
Although, it is interesting to note the way rivals were handed out this week. Both Jon and Jordan now share one back in Metropolis. Lois’s main opponent still seems to be Morgan Edge (Adam Rayner), but after the Stranger showed his hand, she’s looking at him with suspicious as well. And even Clark and Sam (Dylan Walsh) seem to be headed back toward a more antagonistic stance. Allowing his soldiers to shoot Kryptonite at the Man of Steel is going to make Thanksgiving pretty awkward.
Hey, waitaminute, where did that Kryptonite come from? Didn’t the Stranger’s ship say no more existed on the planet?
It is possible true-K can be refined from X-Kryponite, but where did Sam get some of that? We’re willing to overlook some inconsistencies, especially this year, but we imagine the amount of Kryptonite on Earth will matter in the long run.
Superman & Lois airs Tuesdays on The CW.
