What Lies Beneath Recap

It's so exciting to be back here with all our Superman and Lois fans after only a little over four-month break! The covid-19 pandemic really rocked the television scheduling around so to think a whole new season of Superman and Lois is already here for us after just a short time is pretty exciting! With Kal-El's half-brother taken out of Smallville, the void of a new villain or villains is ready to be filled. "What Lies Beneath", "The Thing in the Mines" these titles are pointing to something that needs to be unearthed! Perhaps we aren't done with the Schuster mine in Smallville! It's so exciting to have the Kent family back on our screens! Here's what stood out to us during the premiere!

  1. Three Months Later: Natalie, John Henry's daughter has arrived on Earth Prime but Lois freezes when she calls out to her. We jump forward in time and learn that Lois has been pretty short with Clark during this time jump. She has still not talked with Natalie. Jordan is excited for Sarah's return from Summer Camp. At the Smallville Gazette, Crissy is interviewing a possibly new cub reporter but Lois dismisses him without even interviewing him.
  2. Mayoral Candidates: Lana is working hard to get her own mayoral candidate elected as mayor to offset the awful mayor from last season. Jordan arrives unannounced and Sarah is jazzed to see him. He invites her to the pond later. Meanwhile, Jonathan isn't getting plays and the coach is slow playing him since he broke his arm twice. An emergency on a North Koren Sub calls Clark away leaving Jon and his girlfriend alone at home. Superman arrives to help the sub but is struck by a mysterious vision.
  3. Landing a Submarine: Whatever was hurting Clark seems to have subsided and he is able to lift the sub from sinking and put it on the beach. Natalie is going to attend her old school in Metropolis but she isn't really taking to this new Earth. Lois returns home to find Jon and his Girlfriend in his bed and he is not wearing a top! Superman goes to address the new DOD liaison. Lt. Anderson isn't happy that Superman saved a North Koren sub. The DOD is loyal to America, and Superman is loyal to Earth. He won't get involved in Geo-Political issues. Lois calls Clark home immediately to deal with Jon's behavior. Lois leans into Clark about not parenting the situation. It's clear something is bothering Lois but she isn't telling Clark.
  4. A Romantic Gesture: Sarah's feelings about Jordan seem to have changed and she isn't really into Jordan's romantic gesture. Lana holds a fundraiser for her mayoral candidate. Lana's success seems to trump Kyle again and he is feeling sidelined. Clark arrives and Kyle can read that Lois and Clark are in a fight. Back in Metropolis, Henry waits for Natalie but she is late. She's blown off school and went for a walk. Natalie can't find her place in this world. Lois barks at Jordan for being a little late. She's clearly holding onto something and taking it out on her family. Lana and Clark talk over their shared experiences with their partners. Clark returns home and Lois finally opens up. Her distance is because of how her mother left her family. She doesn't feel a connection to Natalie, she isn't her daughter. When Lois froze, she felt what her mother must have felt. She's been blaming Clark for these feelings but they are misplaced. Lois finally let's Clark in and the pair repair their connection and Lois knows she needs to talk to Natalie.
  5. Earthquake: Clark has been noticing some shaking buildings in the city and he finally sees that there is going to be an Earthquake. He sends Lois to be with the boys and take cover and he begins saving the city. When Clark heads to the mines, he sees a couple already helping out by punching their way through the rock. They have his symbol on their chests. They are from the DOD and they are being trained to use their powers like Superman. It seems now that Anderson has his own Supermen for the United States interests only.

In the final wrap up moments of the episode, Lois meets Natalie. Natalie runs away from Lois but Lois goes after her. The pair talk it out and come to an agreement. While Lois isn't her mother, she can be a friend. Lois returns to the farm with John and Natalie. She's asked them to stay on the farm for a while so they can heal. Clark welcomes his friend back. In the last moments, we see something is still banging around in the mine and is trying to escape. Is this causing the Earthquakes? Check out the preview for next week's all new episode below:

I thought it was a strong premiered overall.

Politics has always existed in the Super comics, so it is what it is and no big surprise... I loved Supergirl til the end and S&L and Stargirl are carrying on the torch, as the other continuing Arrowverse shows have lost it for me.

I still wonder if Nat, with all her tech knowledge, will become the Arrowverse equivalent to Bumblebee at some point.

Anyway... happy returns!

Sweet smell of success because the season premiere drew 1.09 million.

Quoting RobertAnthony:
A half hour in...I QUIT WATCHING...as soon I heard things mentioned like Build Back Better (which is going nowhere in reality) and some complaint fueled by the Marxists called Black Lives Matter for Natalie and Steel...I just couldn't take anymore.

And he just had to save a North Korean sub. Typical of Hollywood these days to appease their Communist bosses.

I had a VERY VERY VERY STRANGE FEELING that given S&L leads into Naomi, which is a woke show from what I have read online, the writers had to fit the mold.

This is what killed Supergirl and will lead to the end of the CW which though up for purchase...nobody I think will buy.

As far as Superman and Lois goes...IT HAS JUST MET ITS KRYPTONITE.


Its always politics for you Robert. Sad to see you couldn't finish a show because you don't align politically.

Good start to the premiere. Needs to be submitted for an Emmy.
