Clark’s visions grow worse as one occurs as he fails to protect hostages from a criminal, which results in Lt. General Anderson’s team stepping in to resolve the issue. Superman is informed by Anderson that he is starting to become a liability and that after special observation, Anderson’s doctors can’t find out where the visions are coming from. Superman then shows disagreement towards Anderson for recruiting young adults to carry out missions.

After a conversation with their mother, Lara, Clark, and Tal-Rho learn that Clark’s visions are the result of an “invasive cosmological event” and assures Tal-Rho that there’s good in him after a brief altercation with Jordan. Another event involving tremors and earthquakes occurs, this time, deep in the ground, a being with spiked hands appears out of the darkness.

From the beginning of the first episode of this season to the end of this episode, Superman and Lois Season 2 has been quite interesting. Everyone from Clark all the way to Jordan has something to do or plays a significant role in a certain plot point. Every actor and actress played their roles very well. In terms of storytelling, “Superman and Lois” always reigns supreme when it comes to a character’s story and how it progresses and remains consistent.

Those who have followed this story from the very beginning are highly likely to have become invested in the well-being of the characters. Investment is something that is needed in stories like this. One plot point that was present throughout this episode was the government trying to get Superman to collaborate with them in global security.

The government always seems to want to be selfish when it comes to Superman. Of course, with Superman being the selfless person he is, he never represents just one part of the world, he represents the entire world. The execution of the coming of a certain “Big Bad’ is coming along well. If you don’t know who it is, please get out of the Fortress of Solitude. There’s nothing to see there. This episode deserves an 8 out of 10 and the new season is starting off strong.
