Superman & Lois S01E04 "Haywire" Preview: Smallville Drama Grows

After a week that saw Jordan (Alex Garfin) beginning to take control of his life, Jonathan (Jordan Elsass) stepping up yet again to prove he has his bro's back, Clark (Tyler Hoechlin) pulling what could possibly be the ultimate "dad move," and Lois (Elizabeth Tulloch) turning up the heat on Morgan Edge (Adam Rayner), it almost felt like we were getting a small-town drama. But the "cleaning up" of "Subjekt-11" by Edge's personal assistant Leslie Larr (Stacey Farber) with the help of some serious heat vision elevated the "galactic conspiracy" levels very nicely, thank you very much. This brings us to the following preview images, overview, and promo for Tuesday night's episode "Haywire"- the last episode of The CW's Superman & Lois before the show goes on hiatus to finish production on the first season (with Supergirl Season 6 premiering on Tuesday, March 30). And from the looks of things, the newest addition to the Arrrowverse isn't going out quietly.

Superman & Lois Season 1, Episode 4 "Haywire": TRUTH – While sitting in the stands at the high school football game, Lois (Elizabeth Tulloch) and Chrissy (guest star Sofia Hasmik) spot fish out of water Morgan Edge (Adam Rayner) conversing with Mayor Dean and Kyle Kushing (Erik Valdez), and the two see right through this insincere move to try to win over the town. Meanwhile, Clark (Tyler Hoechlin) agrees to help Lois out at a town hall meeting, but things get tense when he finds himself pulled in two different directions. Lastly, Jonathan (Jordan Elsass) is having mixed emotions about Jordan's (Alex Garfin) newfound status. Emmanuelle Chriqui, Inde Navarrette, Wolé Parks and Dylan Walsh also star. (#104). The episode was written by Michael Narducci and directed by James Bamford.

In SUPERMAN & LOIS, after years of facing megalomaniacal supervillains, monsters wreaking havoc on Metropolis, and alien invaders intent on wiping out the human race, the world's most famous superhero, The Man of Steel aka Clark Kent (Tyler Hoechlin, "Teen Wolf") and comic books' most famous journalist, Lois Lane (Elizabeth Tulloch, "Grimm"), come face to face with one of their greatest challenges ever – dealing with all the stress, pressures and complexities that come with being working parents in today's society. Complicating the already daunting job of raising two boys, Clark and Lois must also concern themselves with whether or not their sons Jonathan (Jordan Elsass, "Little Fires Everywhere") and Jordan (Alexander Garfin, "The Peanuts Movie") could inherit their father's Kryptonian superpowers as they grow older.

Returning to Smallville to handle some Kent family business, Clark and Lois are reacquainted with Lana Lang (Emmanuelle Chriqui, "Entourage"), a local loan officer who also happens to be Clark's first love, and her Fire Chief husband Kyle Cushing (Erik Valdez, "Graceland"). The adults aren't the only ones rediscovering old friendships in Smallville as the Kent sons are reacquainted with Lana and Kyle's rebellious daughter, Sarah (Inde Navarrette, "Wander Darkly"). Of course, there's never a dull moment in the life of a superhero, especially with Lois' father, General Samuel Lane (Dylan Walsh, "Nip/Tuck") looking for Superman to vanquish a villain or save the day at a moment's notice. Meanwhile, Superman and Lois' return to idyllic Smallville is set to be upended when a mysterious stranger (Wolé Parks, "All American") enters their lives.
