Superman & Lois Episode 5 Preview & Recap

Episode 5 is titled "The Best of Smallville" where the episode just dropped a major Captain Luthor backstory. The trouble in Smallville arises as Sharon Powell's son, Derek, returns home mysteriously and he is completely unaware that he sent a voicemail to his mother. This seems suspicious to both Lois and Chrissy as something seems really odd that Derek returned and Sharon doesn't want to investigate anymore which made them think that something doesn't really add up and make sense.

A fire broke out at the community center where it was found that it was Derek's doing: with his newly gained laser vision. Lois investigates the scene as a journalist herself and while she is busy following the trail of the new X-Kryptonite Soldier of Morgan Edge, Lois is into something that spells trouble: Captain Luthor.

Luthor poses as a LutherCorp employee who became a Reuters tech reported and he approached Lois for some journalistic beat on the case of Morgan Edge. This raises Lois' suspicion over the new guy and she is really intrigued.

Chrissy caught Derek with Leslie Larr on the outskirts of the facility of Edge (which is really shady, by the way) and Chrissy follows her own mantra of "What Would Lois Do?" Chrissy followed the two and she is in for a shock: Leslie puts Derek into a mysterious machine.

Superman arrives and he chased Derek who seemed to have been charged by the machine or whatever that machine does. Luthor joins the party as he shots them both from the skies. Derek tells Superman that he was resurrected, even calling him Kal-El, and that Superman is not alone anymore. Confused, Superman was about to ask what he meant when Derek said he is already dead and an explosion happens, Derek exploded.

Luthor has a twisted reveal of the truth as his computer reminds him that the Lois in this world is nothing like the Lois that he has, the Lois of his own (Another Lois and she's Luthor's? Wait, what?) Luthor replies to his computer that everything about Lois is the same except that in this world, she has a different husband. (Dropped bomb, everyone, Lois of the other world and Luthor are married!)

Superman & Lois Episode 6 Countdown

Because of the hiatus, there are more or less two months before we get to see the next episode of Superman & Lois. It is expected to pick up where it left… where Luthor reveals his wife is Lois from a different world. If that didn't surprise you, I don't know what will anymore. That was just so jaw-dropping. Could this mean that Luthor, Lois, and Superman will be on a love-triangle?

Considering that Superman is quite failing to be the husband that he is in the past episodes and that Lois requires some loving, could Luthor use this advantage to win Lois in this world? That would bleed so much more if Superman finds out that Luthor married Lois in another world.

We'll find out in May.
