Superman & Lois Season 1 Episode 7 Preview: Surprise Encounters & More

After one helluva' return last week, The CW's Superman & Lois doesn't plan on letting up this week with the curiously titled "Man of Steel" (so many possible meanings there). From Clark (Tyler Hoechlin) hoping to find a way to help Jordan (Alex Garfin) control his powers to Lois (Elizabeth Tulloch) getting a partner in her investigation of Edge (Adam Rayner) in Lana (Emmanuelle Chriqui), tensions are rising. And they're about to explode when "The Stranger" (Wolé Parks) makes his move- and as you're about to see from the following preview for "Man of Steel," that doesn't bode well for Superman's long-term health. Oh, and make sure to take a second and appreciate the fact that Arrow star and Arrowverse director David Ramsey will be helming this week's chapter.

Superman & Lois Season 1, Episode 7 "Man of Steel": DAVID RAMSEY DIRECTS THE EPISODE – Clark (Tyler Hoechlin) struggles to help Jordan (Alex Garfin) who is grappling with a new power. Meanwhile, Lois (Elizabeth Tulloch) enlists Clark's help which leads to a surprise encounter. Emmanuelle Chriqui, Jordan Elsass, Dylan Walsh, Erik Valdez, Inde Navarrette and Wole Parks also star. Directed by David Ramsey and written by Jai Jamison.

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.
