The CW has released a preview for "The Inverse Method", the upcoming fourth episode of Superman & Lois' second season. The episode is set to air on Tuesday, February 1st. This week's episode finally revealed exactly what the thing in the mines near Smallville is and from the looks of the preview, dealing with that is going to play a major role in the episode. Warning, there are going to be spoilers for this week's "The Thing in the Mines" beyond this point so turn back just in case you don't want to know.
In this week's episode, a monstrous figure in a green suit blasts its way out of the mines and begins attacking Superman. With its bulky, full-body suit and the cables and mechanisms on it, the suit was a reasonably close match for the early appearances of Doomsday, the creature that killed Superman. However, it was soon revealed that the creature in the suit wasn't Doomsday at all. Instead, it's Bizarro, a twisted doppelganger of Superman who is definitely not Doomsday. Now, Superman is going to have to deal with Bizarro while also dealing with the debilitating episodes he's been having. You can check out the preview for yourself below.
The episode will also see Lois and Chrissy trying to find Lois' sister, Lucy. It's been revealed this season that Lucy has been involved with a possible cult leader-type figure and when Lois went to meet with Lucy this week, she instead came face to face with said leader. You can check out the official episode synopsis below.
