With events of “The Eradicator” fresh in our mind, SciFiPulse looks forward to next week’s Season One Finale of Superman and Lois. Furthermore, with Jordan (Alex Garfin) now being controlled by Tal-Rho (Adam Rayner) we look at five possible ideas/scenarios . . .
There’s no doubt that Alex Garfin has done a wonderful job of playing Jordan. For example, the young actor has encapsulated many traits of struggling with being a teenager, and done so wonderfully. However, now the ultimate struggle looks to be upon him. He many have to face off against his dad, Superman (Tyler Hoechlin). But one interesting scenario might be that The Eradicator permanently upgrades his powers. It would be a great way to develop him, and also a handy plot device, too. You’re welcome, CW!
Superman and Lois has hugely benefitted from having a fine villain, to kick off the show. So, it would be a shame if we saw the last of Tal-Rho, wonderfully depicted by Adam Rayner. Not only is he a great character, but a crucially important link to Superman’s history on Krypton, and his heritage. The best guess is that he’ll be “saved” and still has goodness in him, but will have to imprisoned still.
There were hints that Jonathan may play an important part in next weeks’ big finale. He’s been dedicated to his training with John Henry (Wole Parks) and has shown he’s capable in a fight. Additionally, he’ll want to have a say in how things go down with his brother now being controlled. This is the perfect chance to give Jordan Elsass a much deserved big moment in the big showdown.
Metropolis has long been an important part of the Superman mythos. And, it might just be the setting for series two of Superman and Lois (which there has been confirmation of). Of course, there’s every chance that the action might stay in Smallville, but there’s definitely a possibility of this. Perhaps Lois will again work at the Daily Planet (another important element of Superman), which is presumably no longer owned by the now discovered Morgan Edge. And, Clark and Lois might help to get the city back on its feet. We may also see Lana (Emmanuelle Chriqui) Kyle (Erik Valdez) and Sarah (Inde Navarette) move, too and get their fresh start there . . .
Supergirl . . .
If Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) is to appear in a capacity to help, then it’s certainly been very much under-wraps. It’s probably unlikely, although there’s no reason she couldn’t fly in from National City. Certainly, there’ll need to be all hands on deck to fight Tal-Rho, by the looks of things. The CW has said there are plans for further shared universe crossover events, following ‘Crisis on Infinite Earths’.
So, there they are, our ideas and thoughts on the finale. Each, in its own way, would have implications. For example, if Jordan’s powers were upgraded he’d possibly become Superboy . . . But, to actually see what does happen we’ll have to wait a whole week to find out.
