‘Superman and Lois’ 1×15 — The last sons of Krypton

3 mins read

Superman, the first and greatest Superhero of all, has been around giving hope to a lot of people for almost a century.

“Superman and Lois” has honestly given us the best Superman adaptations in decades, managing to combine all versions of the character while giving the fan a perfect modern adaptation. 

The season finale titled “The Last Sons of Krypton,” directed by the Arrowverses very own Tom Cavanagh (Dr. Wells on “The Flash”) was not only one of the best episodes of the season, but also acted as a perfect way to end the first chapter of a great show.

Firstly, the visuals express such great cinematography and the action scenes were handled very professionally. I really felt like I was watching a big budget blockbuster, and the writing and acting were phenomenal.

This episode had a perfect balance between the emotion, action and drama, and there were a bunch of scenes that made one tear up. 

Every scene was done with care and precision, and expressed the passion poured in by all involved.

A character, or characters, whose storyline the fans were a bit apprehensive towards went through an amazing journey and established themselves to be an integral part of the show. Kyle and the Cushing family’s journey throughout the season reflects the journey of Smallville.

The atmosphere of the show transitioned from the pilot where colors were dull and muted, and by the end we have a much brighter and vibrant color palette. 

The actors for Jordan and Jonathan Kent (Alex Garfin and Jordan Elsass) are going places, and both of them have great chemistry on screen. Their scenes together genuinely feel like scenes between real brothers. Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch are, in my opinion, the perfect Superman and Lois Lane. They work so well together that you long for scenes with them.

In the end, when Natalie, who is John Henry’s daughter, comes to Earth-Prime emotions and uncertainty abound. John Henry Irons goes through a lot and Wolé Parks does an amazing job of bringing out the joy and disbelief expressed when his character learns that his daughter is still alive. The episode kind of ends on an ominous note as the music is more slowed, and you are left with the fear that something (or someone) bad is not far behind.

A great episode and an amazing way to end a season.

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Superman and Lois has now concluded with a perfect season and I’m really excited for what they have in store going forward. Filming for season 2 starts on Sept. 27, 2021.
