Superman & Lois 3×10: Lois interviews Peia in the hope of unearthing the truth about an old case; Clarke struggles to spend quality time with the boys; Jonathan and Jordan find themselves at a party where tensions between Sarah and Jordan come to a head.
Although Lois is still undergoing treatment, she’s determined to publish the story about the Mannheims, regardless. With Peia now behind bars at the D.O.D., Lois attempts to question her about the framing of Lex Luthor. Luthor has been in prison for almost 20 years, and Peia warns Lois about the dangers of his release. But, Lois is determined to get the truth out — even if it means freeing Lex in the process.
I always love when Clark goes into “Dad mode”, and this episode is no exception. Attempting to take the boys to a wrestling match doesn’t quite go as planned, when Jordan and Jonathan have plans of their own. The boys’ plans go awry, when a party in Smallville gets busted up by the cops.
While the episode was good, I felt like Peia got too much leniency because of her disease. At the end of the day, cancer or not, Peia is a murderer and should’ve been treated as one. The only one who seemed to understand this was John Henry, until Natalie changed his mind.
Superman & Lois 3×10 is a great episode that makes you eager for what happens next. And while it does have its flaws, it’s inspirational to see Lois go through so much and still attempt to get justice, in spite of the odds.
