Just before the end of the year, viewers of The CW's Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch-starring Superman & Lois were given the episode overview for the second episode of the second season, S02E02 "The Ties That Bind." And without knowing what the season opener would bring, it looked like Clark's (Hoechlin) only hope in dealing with his issues lies with the last person he and Lois (Tulloch) would expect. Meanwhile, Lois and Chrissy (Sofia Hasmik) look to be having a tough time adjusting to their new partnership, while the rift between Sarah (Inde Navarrette) and Jordan (Alex Garfin) appears to be growing. And we also have a David Ramsey alert (on the same day he was announced to be leading the newest The CW Arrowverse series Justice U) as he takes the director's chair for this chapter. Without going into spoilers about the opener (for those waiting until the weekend), the appearance by Wolé Parks' John Henry Irons makes a whole ton of sense when you match up this set of preview images with the overview for "The Ties That Bind" that follows:
