Superman and Lois Season 1 Finale Recap

The stage is set, the players are known, the final deceptions planned or executed! Zeta-Rho has found his way back into the world and he's taken over one of the most important things Superman and Lois have, their son Jordan! Jordan, already having half Kryptonian powers might be further enhanced by Zeta-Rho's consciousness. How can Superman bring himself to fight his own flesh and blood? Will John Henry Irons be able to hold back The Eradicator long enough for Superman to reach Jordan? What does Lois, Jonathan, Lana, and Kyle have planned to keep Smallville from losing it all? Tonight is the season finale of Superman and Lois' landmark first season! Here's what stood out to us:

  1. Jordan Gone: Superman, Lois, and John search all night with no luck. Superman leaves to find him on his own. Lana and Kyle rush back to the scene of the car accident and rescue Jonathan and General Lane. As Leslie is being put back in prison, Lois demands to speak with her. Leslie gives a snide remark, and Lois shoves her against the wall. Leslie warns Lois of upcoming danger that even Superman can’t save. General Lane, Jonathan, and the Cushing family make it back to the DOD base where civilians are protesting. Kyle asks if they should leave, and Lana decided they should stay and help the town. Superman calls out for Jordan from space and hears a response.
  2. The Defense Counsel: The protestors realize that the army hasn’t left because Edge is still out there. Morgan Edge floats behind the townspeople. Superman finds Jordan, who doesn’t seem to recall what happened. Zeta-Rho reveals himself through Jordan and attacks Kal-El. Zeta battles Superman, but Superman continues to call out for Jordan. Steel attempts to stop Morgan Edge, who is glowing blue. A shockwave knocks Steel to the ground, and Edge takes several soldiers, turning them into Kryptonians. Sam orders the evacuation of Smallville. Lois implores Superman to let Lois and Jonathan assist.
  3. Divide and Conquer: The Eradicator is too strong for Superman to take out. He will have to work with Steel to stop him but that leaves Jordan unsaved. Lois and Jonathan will attempt to save him pleading to Jordan to defeat Zeta-Rho's consciousness. As Smallville begins to evacuate Zeta-Rho, the defense counsel and The Eradicator head for the mines where Kryptonite is. Superman and Steel prepare to engage them all.
  4. The Battle for Jordan: Superman and Steel are able to get Jordan away from the others and Steel takes him to the farm so Lois and Jonathan can attempt to save him. Jonathan has weapons that can kill him aimed on his brother. Lois attempts to invade Jordan's mind to draw him out. Zeta-Rho has buried Jordan deep into the subconsciousness. This has allowed Zeta-Rho to subsequently attack Lois and Jonathan. Jonathan is forced to fire on Jordan. It isn't enough and Jordan attacks Jonathan as they both try to pull Jordan out. Lois is able to get to Jordan finally and Jordan casts out Zeta-Rho! Meanwhile, Superman and Steel are able to dispatch the security counsel and at nearly the cost of his life, Steel is able to throw the hammer fast enough to destroy The Eradicator while Superman holds him. Superman saves Steel from his free fall.
  5. Cleaning Up Smallville: As the town begins to clean up, Superman addresses the world and explains who Morgan Edge was and what happened in Smallville. Superman gives the credit of saving Smallville to the town itself and we cut to a summer cookout at the Cushings. All seems to be forgiven and the town is in their corner again. Lois buys half of the Smallville Gazette from Chrissy using the money they got from selling their home in Metropolis. John Henry Irons and General Lane share a moment and we learn The General is stepping down from active duty to be with his family. Irons tells Lois he can't stay on the farm because she reminds him of his wife too much. Sarah and Jordan confirm they love each other in the fields on the farm.

In the final wrap up moments, The Kent Family buries the Crystal that held Jor-El's consciousness. As the Kents go to say goodbye to John, a pod arrives out of the sky and Natalie Irons emerges!

Great season. My only complaint is how it totally ignored Supergirl-- a total insult-- and never explained why the Fortress of Solitude was so radically different.

"Are you worried this might make people afraid of Kryptonians?"
"You mean me?"
"No, you egotist--I mean you and your cousin!"

Otherwise, it was indeed a great episode in a great season!


Yeah, it was that scene that got me worked up... flat out ignores Kara's existence. It's insulting... unless there's a twist in Supergirl's ending that somehow ties in these discrepancies.

My favorite part of the episode were the Superman flying scenes which were plentiful and pretty awesome to watch. Lots of close ups of Tyler showing that he put in the work to make the flying look good. Nice work to all of those that made the flying look as good as it did.

Nat is the daughter, not wife.


Apologies for that.

Kind of reminds me of how Supergirl season 1 ended...

At least fans weren't kept in the dark until the next season! Now John's wife has landed on Earth...but will she be friend or foe?

NOTE: The season finale was pre-empted Tuesday in NYC for the second game of a day-night doubleheader between the Yankees and Red Sox on WPIX. The episode will air Saturday at 9:00 PM after Stargirl at 8:00. Though I read the summary, I need to get the visuals for this, so I will offer my thoughts perhaps by Sunday.

Great season finale that wraps up the Morgan Edge/ Tal-Rho's storyline. With Natalie Irons' arrival, I look forward to the second season where we will see the Super Family in live-action. Great ending to the first season as I hope the 2nd season retains the cinematic quality and great writing that made the show great.
