Lana takes back when Edge gave her a promotion, as she wants to help rebuild Smallville. Despite Lois’ concerns, Lana is optimistic, putting aside doubts because many families need money and jobs, like her old friend Emily. Little does she know that her recruiting for this executive team is all for Edge to have test subjects to make Kryptonian super soldiers.
Lois, thanks to her investigations with the Stranger, finds information that suggests Edge is transplanting alien minds into human bodies. He encountered this in the past with Derek Powell, who had powers like Kal-El, as well as other assassins, including Edge’s assistant Larr.
Superman was also attacked by one of these soldiers at a military base, and Lois relates this to the unique machine from a few episodes ago. The public may have originally thought that he was just giving people abilities, but as Derek said, he didn’t feel like himself, so Lois makes this theory with her new X-Kryptonite finds in the mines of the town.
It goes awry in the final moments when Larr takes over the team Lana hired, making it clear that a life-changing experience awaits them. Edge already told him about the special project, more or less confirming that they will be guinea pigs.
He was eager to bring Emily in because he knows it will be emotional if Lana ever rebels, and Larr goes one step further by suggesting to Kyle (Lana’s husband) that he should enlist, too. He thinks she should be in a policy-making role, but again Larr wants to make sure she can keep Lana in check and impress her boss.
They will be powerful tools to use against Superman because Clark knows most of these people, paving the way for a chilling ordeal. It could even lead the Man of Steel to reveal the truth about his secret to Lana, as now he will have to help him and Lois save all of these people from being sacrificial lambs in Edge’s sadistic vision.
Superman & Lois stars Tyler Hoechlin, Elizabeth Tulloch, Dylan Walsh, Alex Garfin, Jordan Elsass, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Inde Navarrette, and Wolé Parks. The series returns on May 18 and will air Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET / PT on The CW.
