In this episode of Superman & Lois, Lana begins her road to mayor, Jordan and Sarah make up, and a long-awaited arrival is revealed. Keep reading for everything that happens in “The Thing in the Mines.”

Lana’s Old Specialty

Lana is gearing up to host her first event as a mayoral candidate. Kyle tries to comfort her by saying everyone is excited to see a woman running, but Lana knows she needs to prove she’s a serious candidate. At her event, she wants to use the gift of Smallville to support the community. But the community is posing a question: how can they trust her after the Morgan Edge debacle and her involvement.

Jordan’s Big Secret

Jordan thinks it’s important he should tell Sarah about his powers. He asks his dad for advice, who says if even one person found out about them, it could seriously jeopardize Clark’s identity. Clark tells Jordan he didn’t even think about telling Lois until they were getting married. Jordan thinks he wants to marry Sarah, so he wants to tell her. As things get increasingly heated, Clark’s powers act up dangerously. Lois takes the kids to school and when she returns, she checks on Clark. Sarah is Jordan’s first proper girlfriend and he really cares about her, so it’s understandable why he wants to tell her the truth. At school, Jordan makes a remark to Sarah that they need to fix things. It’s not her, it’s him. He doesn’t know where he wants to go from here.

Clark’s Uncontrolled Emotions

Clark still can’t get his emotions in check. They soon realize that whatever is in the mines is making him act this way. He’s reacting to however it is feeling. If it’s another Kryptonian being, they’ll handle it. Lois says he needs to apologize to the boys. Nobody expects him to be made of steel on the inside. Until Irons returns, Lois orders Clark to stay home.

Now’s not the time to go Doomsday on me.

Lois Lane

Apologizing to the boys, he admits he meant what he said, but he wants to make it up to them for his actions. Jon excused himself so Jordan and Clark can have a one-on-one conversation. If something were to happen to Sarah, his guilt would be one hundred times worse. Jordan loves her, and he doesn’t think that’s going to change. So Clark makes an ultimatum: in one year, if he still feels the same, they can have a different conversation.

It’s Bizzaro

After three episodes, the strange figure finally makes his long-awaited appearance. The military makes multiple attempts to take him out with weapons, to no avail. Superman is on the scene and they clash. Meanwhile, Sam and Lois are trying to get ahold of John, who is awaking from unconsciousness. He calls for his suit and joins Superman in the fight. The figure is a mirror of Clark, otherwise known as Bizzaro. Is this version a combination of Doomsday and Bizzaro?

Jordan and Sarah Make Up

Jordan heads to the Cushing house to meet with Sarah. As a gift, he gives her his grandma’s locket. His grandpa gave it to her when he knew he wanted to marry her. He wants her to have it because he wants to be with her, one kiss won’t change it and he’s sorry it made her feel like it did. 

Superman & Lois airs Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW. Episodes stream next day on the CW app and cwtv.com.
