This week's episode of Superman & Lois, "A Brief Reminiscence In-Between Cataclysmic Events," saw some shocking developments for The CW series. After stopping Morgan Edge/Tal-Roh (Adam Rayner) from using the Eradicator to restore the Kryptonian race by supplanting humanity, a weak Clark Kent/Superman (Tyler Hoechlin) recovered at the Fortress of Solitude. However, what seemed like a dreamy trip down memory lane turned out to be Edge digging into Clark's memories for leverage to make him submit and, after threatening Lois (Elizabeth Tulloch) and the boys, Clark submits only to be taken away by Edge. Now, in a preview for the next episode, we get a glimpse of what submission means and it appears that Superman has been turned evil.
At the end of this week's episode, Lois calls John Henry Irons (Wole Parks) and tells him that everything he warned about with Edge and Superman is coming to pass and in the preview, we see that Superman does appear to have turned. Now clad in what appears to be a black suit, Superman appears to destroy Metropolis, fully under Edge's control. It's not clear if that's happening on this Earth or on John Henry's as he explains how bad things got, but things do not look good. However, Lois is not willing to give up and it would appear she's called in some help. Arrow alum David Ramsey appears in the preview and will guest star in the episode as John Diggle.
At this point, we don't have a lot of information about this upcoming episode, but fans will have a bit of a wait to see what's next for Superman. It appears that Superman & Lois will be going on a short break for two weeks with the next new episode airing on Tuesday, July 13. Next week, on Tuesday, June 29, the network will re-air "Holding the Wrench" and on Tuesday, July 6, they will re-air "Loyal Subjekts".
