That's okay, not everything is gonna land 100%. At least some good came out of it. The Sara story had some surprises in it, so that was a positive as well. The planet they are stuck on is full of Ava clones. Is that where they were dumped? Or is there something more going on?
Batwoman - Episode 2.14 - And Justice For All
Black Lightning - Episode 4.12 - The Book of Resurrection: Chapter One
Superman & Lois - Episode 1.06 - Broken Trust
The triumphant return of the Man of Steel is upon us, and the show continues to impress. The kids storylines are as compelling as Lois and Clark's, and that is rare for a superhero show like this. But the whole thing continues to be vastly information.
Jordan is still battling with his powers, and there is a very poignant scene with Jordan unleashing his powers into the hands of his father on the football field. The look of pain on Clark's face is everything. Not physical pain, he can handle it of course, more the emotional empathetic pain he feels for his son. It was a great moment.
This episode ended on something of a cliffhanger too, with Jordan having a fit over his powers and Clark rushing him to the fortress. Luckily we don't have to wait long, as a new episode comes next week (directed by Arrow's David Ramsey!)
