Now, after a break for a few weeks, the show returns with what is essentially the other side of the “30 Days and 30 Nights” episode, where the rest of the cast dealt with Superman being missing. Where has he been? Well, we find out in “Bizarros in a Bizarro World.”
Season two has been busy, with the return of Lucy Lane, the threat of cult leader Ally Alston, Superman’s deteriorating relationship with the DOD (mostly due to General Mitch Anderson’s increasing paranoia and power grabs), and the great fake-out of what we were led to believe was Doomsday but turned out to be Bizarro. On the personal front, there’s Jonathan’s increasingly poor choices and drama in the Cushing/Cortez home. All in all, things are very busy in “Anti-Hero.”
Superman and Lois is having a busy second season. Bizarro has turned up, and they’ve done a different spin on that character. Jonathan Kent is, unfortunately, acting like a teenage boy. Lois is having problems with her estranged sister, Lucy, and her ties to a strange cult that might be related to Bizarro. And Superman’s relationship with DOD General Anderson is steadily worsening.
After a winter hiatus, Superman and Lois returns with a lot of plot threads hanging.
Among the reasons I think Superman and Lois has been such a great show is the characterizations and writing. Which is why this episode seemed a bit jarring.
