Superman and Lois (2021) s02e05 Episode Script

Girl... You'll Be a Woman, Soon

1 I know you're nervous, but everything's gonna be okay.
You just have to be brave.
Sorry for the wait.
Let's start with the big parts of the will.
A trust has been established to cover all living expenses, and the title of the house will be in her name.
However, to receive your inheritance You must agree to look after this.
But that thing is poisonous.
It's what killed her father I'm afraid it was a very firm point.
No pendant, no inheritance.
Ally listen to me.
This pendant's destroyed our family for generations.
We can end the cycle.
You and me.
The choice is yours, Miss Allston.
Now, if you'd please leave, Ally and I have much to discuss.
Your father would be very proud.
He was so close, and now it's up to you to finish his life's work.
Allston? Prepare some tea.
We have a very important guest coming And I wanna show her everything.
Do I smell banana muffins? Those are for Nat, since you're going to the hospital today to see Tag.
I figured you could bring her a care package.
Not a bad idea.
Although, I'm not sure what you could put in there to have her forgive me for what I did to her dad.
You didn't do anything to John, Clark.
What happened to him is not your fault.
I pulled him into this mess.
Well, technically, I pulled him into it when I asked him to look into the mines.
So if you're gonna feel guilty, then I have to feel guilty, and I feel guilty enough about my sister, so Why should you feel guilty about Lucy? She betrayed you, not the other way around.
Unless I was wrong.
This whole time, I assumed that everything that came out of Ally's mouth was a lie.
This talk about shadow dimensions and mirror selves it sounded crazy.
But then this bizarre version of you busted through the earth's crust, and now I'm wondering what if the two are related? You think this thing could be my shadow self? Maybe, and if that is the case, then maybe Ally's theories are true and I really did destroy Lucy's life for no reason.
Your sister almost died.
You had good reason for what you wrote about Ally.
What if I didn't have all the facts? I gotta go back through my notes and see if I missed anything.
We smell banana muffins.
They're for Natalie.
Well - Ooh ooh! - Hey yah! Whoa, whoa! Not fair.
So, uh, any updates on John Henry? Yeah, I talked to the doctors this morning.
He's out of the ICU, but he does have a tough recovery ahead.
So it take it that means that Nat won't be making it - to Sarah's quinceañera? - Unfortunately not.
Probably not the best time to be hosting a party, but We're not canceling, right? I mean, it's kind of a big deal.
It's not just a normal party.
She's, like, studied for this.
We wouldn't do that to Sarah.
There's just a few things I have to take care of first.
Yeah, and I have to go to the office for a little bit, so I need you two to stay here.
There's people coming soon to set up the barn, so make sure they have everything they need.
- Okay.
- Don't worry.
Dad, loosen up.
You're dancing like a tin man.
Yeah, well, that's how you're supposed to dance.
Spaghetti arms are bad.
See, I learned that from Patrick Swayze.
Who? You guys are weird.
Whoa! Dad! Maybe.
But we sure know how to dance good.
Oh, please don't make out at my quinceañera.
I'm already nervous enough as it is.
- Ew.
- Mmm.
You got nothing to be nervous about.
You just wait till you hear your mama's toast.
Please don't get sappy on me.
I will kill you if you cry.
If that's your mother, tell her that I bought the bouncy house for the cousins, so they better be coming.
Uh, no.
It's it's just work.
Does Abuelita know that I'm taking back our last name? Uh, no, I hadn't told her yet.
Just in case you, uh, change your mind.
Why would I change my mind? The fact that Abuelito thought that he couldn't get a job in Smallville without changing his name from Cortez to Cushing, it's just it's so wrong.
Yeah, well, times were different then.
Well, I'm proud of who we are and where we come from, so I mean, isn't that what tonight's all about? Mm-hmm.
What did I do to deserve you? - Mm.
- Hmm? Come on.
Dad! And you.
You got a lot of broken ribs.
How you feelin'? Better than the others.
I'm sorry for your loss, Tag.
That thing's still on the loose.
- Isn't it? - Yes.
- But I can find it.
- How? That pendant that you took.
Where is it? I gave it to General Anderson during my debriefing.
I-I had to follow protocol.
I know, Tag.
It's okay.
You did the right thing.
Just rest up.
I'll come back and check on you soon.
Thank you for saving my life.
Grandpa's not coming to the quinceañera, is he? Uh, no.
He's here for me.
What? You two have plans? Did you lose a bet? Uh, no.
We we hang.
Uh, since when? Name one time.
A-a-all right, so we don't, like, normally hang, but, uh Bro, why are you being so sketch? Fine.
He's training me.
For what? To help, like, sharpen my powers.
But look, you can't tell Mom and Dad.
You're training this guy? Jordan, you'd make a terribly spy.
I sh okay, I don't get why does this need to be like a big secret? Because your parents aren't ready to deal with the reality of Jordan's situation.
Whether your father wants to hear it or not, one day, he may need Jordan's help, and I want him to be prepared, should that be the case.
Have fun.
Actually, we could use you today.
Help us figure out what your brother's baseline is.
I assume I can count on you to keep this between us.
All right then.
Follow me.
The truth is we are all born incomplete.
There's nothing we can do to change that.
Just going over some of my old Ally videos.
Trying to see if I missed anything.
You wanna help? Can't.
I have an appointment.
I just came by to grab some notes.
Chrissy, I know that you're mad at me, but we're supposed to be working on this story together.
Except we aren't.
Because whenever I work with you, Lois, I can't help but feel like I'm working for you.
That's not fair.
May not be fair, but it's the truth.
Everything with you is on a need-to-know basis you deciding what I need to know.
Why didn't you tell me the whole Lucy story? I didn't think it was relevant.
To whom? You can't just pick and choose what facts you think are important.
You did the same thing with Morgan Edge.
You only give me the information that you want me to have, and I wind up looking like an idiot.
Makes it really hard for me to trust you.
I'm sorry that you feel that way.
It's fine.
Just confirms what I've always known.
Which is what? If you want the truth, you have to find it yourself.
Is that Dr.
Faulkner? You were supposed to alert me when you found it, not send in your own team.
I believed that they were my best option.
And how many times did I have to tell you they were kids who weren't ready for something like this? They were soldiers trained to protect this country against every threat imaginable.
Except ones that look like Superman.
Why didn't you tell me that that thing you were chasing was you? It's not me.
I don't know what that thing is or where it's from, but I promise you, I'm gonna stop it.
Then why are you still here? Because I need something first.
The pendant that Private Harris brought me.
What is it, exactly? I don't know.
But sometimes, I can see what he sees.
If you give it to me, I think I can use it to find him.
And that's all? What are you implying? This energy field it appears whenever you two are together.
It looks to me like the two of you are powering up.
Private Harris confirmed as much.
If that thing made me stronger, why would I have told Tag to take it? Again, Private Harris said it landed at his feet.
You simply told him to run perhaps you didn't realize it was in his possession.
We're on the same side here, General.
Every day, I believe that just a little bit less.
This doesn't have to be hard.
Just give me the pendant so I can track this thing down.
That's not possible chain of command and all.
I'm afraid you'll just have to use your own superpowers this time.
You're making a mistake.
Bring me the other Superman and maybe we can discuss getting your jewelry back.
48, 49, 50, stop.
Not bad.
- Not remarkable either.
- What? What are you talking about? 50 pushups in a minute? That's like way above average.
I'm sure your coach would be impressed, but we're talking about a whole different kettle of fish here, son.
Listen to me.
This is not some dumb competition between you and your brother.
This is a test to see how special you are.
You're right.
I could've done better.
I'm gonna give you another chance to prove it.
Give me everything you have this time.
Yes, sir.
How about you go grab some water while I give Jordan here a couple of pointers? Sure.
Do you need any help? Is it the dress? No, just general motor functions ugh.
Oh my God.
No crying.
You promised.
Oh, but sweetie, you look so beautiful.
Even though I can't, you know, move like a normal human being? Don't worry, sweetie.
It just takes a little practice.
I haven't had to practice walking since I was a toddler.
The changing of the shoes is tradition, - but if you don't want to - No, no, I can handle it.
I mean, Dad's so excited about all the symbolic stuff, and honestly, it's the only thing keeping me going right now seeing how happy this all makes him.
He loves you so much.
He just wanted to do something really special for you.
Yeah, who knew he was such a softie? I did.
Well, when he sees you in that dress, he's gonna, like, pass out.
He better, after what I paid for it.
- Oh! - Whoa.
Okay, I got you honey.
If you fall, I'll always be there to catch you.
- Hey.
- Hey.
How's Tag? He's in rough shape, but he'll be fine.
I never should have put him in that situation.
Did Anderson at least explain why he sent them and not you? He has it in his head that I'm using that pendant to empower myself somehow.
He refused to give it to me.
- Then I'll just call my dad.
- No, no, no.
Let's just leave him out of this for now, okay? It's between me and Anderson.
- You heading home? - No, the mines.
It turns out that Amertech scientist that's there is also one of Ally's disciples.
That's a strange coincidence.
And you know I don't believe in coincidences.
I think she's the reason that thing is here.
Maybe she sent for it.
Want me to come with you? As much as I would love your company, we have a quinceañera happening in the barn in five hours, and I haven't been to the dry cleaner.
You know, I am really looking forward to seeing you in this dress again.
- Yeah? - Mm-hmm.
You better bring your A-game, Kent.
This tea is delicious.
Where did you get it? The lobby.
Yeah okay.
So if I understand correctly, The Ascension is something your father came up with.
Is that right? Actually, it's a belief that my family has passed down for generations.
We were chosen.
Chosen? You mean like how Moses-was-chosen-to-spread- the-truth-to-the-Jewish-people - type chosen? - You don't believe me.
It doesn't matter what I believe.
I'm just here to report the facts.
That's all I want.
I want people to be able to learn the truth for themselves.
Um, but just to say it, right? Your whole belief system it's more about faith than it is about fact.
Ah, well, that, that is where you're wrong.
And I can prove it.
Uh But, um how? You're about to find out, Ms.
You drugged me.
Oh - Oh, you bi - Whoa, whoa, whoa It won't be long now.
Faulkner? Oh my God Are you okay? Yeah, I'm just a little shaken up after seeing what your look-alike did.
- Do you think this was him? - Must've been.
Faulkner was dead when I got here.
I think I startled him.
- He was still here? - Yeah.
He looked at me, and then he just flew off.
Why would he kill her and spare me? I-I-I don't know.
Maybe he's married to some version of you in his world.
Maybe he and I are chasing the same enemy.
It's been seven minutes since I felt anything.
Every journey has its own pace.
Let the pendant guide her.
I'm gonna get the defibrillators just in case.
What was that? The truth.
You have ascended.
Put some mustard on it, son.
That's it.
Well, I guess if Dad's ever up against giant corn bag aliens, then Jordan's got you covered.
Not helpful.
Look, I think, honestly, at this point, the only way he's gonna learn to fight a real bad guy Is to spar me.
I'm afraid that's not an option.
What? Why? 'Cause what, too strong or something? Come on.
He'd be lucky to get one hit in.
Where's this coming from, John? Just wanna see how I stack up against Super Boy, you know? Come on.
What, are you scared or something? Come on.
It's your call.
Yeah, whatever.
All right, let's go.
Oh, come on.
Don't tell me that hurt.
Come on.
Come on.
Are we done yet? Hey, hey, hey.
That's enough.
That's enough.
- What is wrong with you? - You're done here.
Maybe you're just training the wrong kid.
How on earth did my son get such a beautiful family? Well, I married the right woman for starters.
I need a picture before mass.
Do we have to, Abuela? This dress feels like cardboard.
Sophie, we discussed this.
Tonight, you're a team player.
Okay One, two, three, smile.
I was me, but not me More like this bizarro version of myself.
- Does that even make any sense? - Yes.
Yes, it does.
That was your other half, the part of you that's been missing.
And the world It was so strange.
Everything in it was just off, somehow.
But you you were everywhere.
What are you doing here? - Chrissy - Is some kind of a trap? No, I'm just as surprised as you are.
What's Superman doing here? Ms.
Allston, we believe you may be in danger.
The only threat I see is Ms.
This has nothing to do with us.
Kit Faulkner was murdered.
Murdered by whom? He's coming.
What the hell was that? We need to get out of here.
I'm not gonna let you kill anyone else.
You're the opposite of me.
I'll replay this moment for months Alone in my head waitin' for it to come I wrote all your lines and the script's in my mind I hope that you'll follow it for once Oh my God.
I can't believe that man actually showed up.
Yeah, well, I told you not to invite him.
I was being polite.
That'll teach you.
- Hello.
- Hey.
Um, no no parents? Oh, they're just gettin' dressed, and, uh Y You look, um, I think the word he's reaching for is "stunning".
That's not the word.
You watch it, Rico Suave.
I'm sorry.
I would've invited Candice, but, you know, with my court, we kind of hit our guest limit.
It's all good.
Don't worry about it.
Sarah, why don't you go show the boys the table? Okay.
Come on.
- Have fun, you guys.
- All right, thanks.
Everything okay? He's at the fortress.
My mom's gonna see what she can learn.
What was Chrissy doing with Ally? I'll find out.
She's gonna be here.
Did I miss anything? You're good.
Hanging low while I pop a bottle off a yacht Chain swanging, cling-clang and it cost a lot I'm always after guala, yeah And you are not bad Keep it goin' till you hit the spot Hey, um, I'll just do a mango.
Could you get me a lime soda? What am I, your drink boy now? It's for Sarah.
- What's your problem? - What? You go all aggro on me during training, for what? To show Grandpa that he's wasting his time? Do you hear yourself sometimes? - What are you talking about? - I'm talking about you, and how you think that everything is about you all the time, and for the record, I didn't go all aggro to make you look bad.
I'm just better than you, and I think you should get used to it, because I'm only getting stronger.
- Excuse me, sorry.
- Hey.
Can we get out of here? I need some air.
Yeah, yeah.
- Wow.
- Oh! Hey, wow.
Well, y'all sure know how to make an entrance.
I'll give you that.
We are so sorry we're late.
Oh, no apologies needed.
We're just getting started.
Um, you know, actually I'm gonna run out, check on the kids in the, uh, bouncy house Make sure there's no broken limbs.
Make yourselves at home.
God, my feet are killing me.
I don't know why anybody would willingly wear those.
Want me to, like, massage them or something? Maybe later, when we're old and, like, in our 40s.
Oh, God.
Being the center of attention is exhausting.
No, I get it.
I'm exactly the same way which is funny, because John just accused me of the opposite.
You guys like in a fight? I guess.
I don't even know what about though.
He's just been acting like a totally different person.
It's hard to explain.
Well, there's gotta be a reason.
People don't just suddenly change their personalities unless something's going on.
I don't know.
He could just be in a bad mood.
But I remember right before my depression fully set in it was just like you said a bunch of days in a row where I just thought I was in a bad mood.
But then one day, a switch just turned off.
Bad mood became deeper and painful, - and I felt like a - Totally different person.
So just don't let it go.
That's all.
Does having a quinceañera make you totally smart? Yeah.
I'm an adult now, you know? I know adult stuff.
How much adult stuff? What are you doing here? I didn't know what else to do.
You won't respond to my texts or answer any of my calls.
Yeah, 'cause there's nothing to talk about, Tonya.
All right? I didn't come by the other night to start things up again.
You made that pretty clear.
What do you want? Look, when you came to the bar, I got upset all over again.
So I called my girlfriend H-hold up.
You told your girlfriend about us? Yeah, I did.
'Cause back when we were together, I stupidly thought you were gonna actually leave your wife, because you said you wanted to.
And when you ended things, my friend was there for me.
So yes, I called her and told her how you came by all worried about Lana's campaign, which she felt was pretty crappy of you.
- Can't say I disagree.
- Okay, look.
Tonya She thinks the Dean campaign would pay for this kind of info.
I asked her not to say anything.
You think she sold them the story? Money's tight.
People do stupid things.
I thought you should know, because I would never do anything to hurt you, Kyle.
All I wanted was to be with you.
Hey, Kyle, this food is incredible.
Thanks, Kent.
Hey, it's good to see your mom again.
She was always one of my favorites.
Aww, damn it.
Everything all right? No.
Not even close.
I made a huge mistake, and, uh, I think my family's about to pay for it.
That is the God's honest truth, Lana.
Well, if it isn't the man of the hour himself.
We were just talking about you.
The resemblance between Sarah and your mother is striking.
Some good genes in the Cushing family.
Oh, it's actually the Cortez family now.
Isn't that right, babe? Um, yeah.
Well, that's awfully progressive.
Guess your family's just full of surprises, huh? Honey, have you seen Sarah? It's almost time for the father-daughter dance.
Uh, no.
But, um, I'll I'll go look for her.
Oh, not without me.
That was definitely the low point of the evening.
Thanks for saving me back there.
Why didn't you tell me you were going to see Ally? Because I needed to be objective.
So you had to keep it a secret? Please.
Don't lecture me about keeping secrets.
Not after all the ones you've kept from me, okay? I'm sorry.
Because you and I need to seriously talk about what went down back there.
Lois, she drugged me.
What? Ally did? She put something in my tea and had me cross over to this other world where I saw another version of myself.
It was a really intense trip, and trust me, I've had a few.
My junior year was pretty wild jam bands, mushrooms, Birkenstock Kevin Chrissy.
But this was something else entirely.
It was everything your sister said a different dimension, a parallel universe whatever you wanna call it, it's real.
So you're saying Ally was right.
Yes, but more importantly, she's scary.
My other dad in that world, he's terrified of her.
Everyone is.
And the thing is, over there, she's taken over.
Taken over what exactly? The country maybe even the world.
Hello, everybody, and good evening.
We're about to start the father-daughter dance.
Bottom line? You weren't wrong about Ally.
That woman is dangerous.
We have to do something.
- Hey.
- Hey.
Thank you so much for letting us have this here.
Of course.
Happy to.
You are always there when it matters.
Look at my baby girl.
- She is all grown up.
- Yeah.
Happens fast.
Being a parent it's like the hardest thing in the world, and then there's moments like this.
Oh, crap.
I think she's having a panic attack.
Hey, what's wrong? No.
How could you do that? I heard you.
Mija, just please calm down, okay? No! Honey.
- What is going on? - Tell her.
Tell her what I saw.
It's not it's not what you think.
Don't lie to me.
I I know what I saw.
You you you and some woman.
The girl from the bar? Just, Lana, just just let me explain.
God, I believed you.
You were just blowing off steam after work.
Can we just talk? No, not here and not now.
- Lana, please.
- I said not now.
Sweetheart, listen to me.
This is your night.
Everybody is here celebrating you because they love you.
Can't we just call it off? I I I don't wanna pretend Oh, no.
We're not gonna pretend.
We're gonna deal with this as a family.
I promise.
But right now, we're gonna walk in there and we're gonna celebrate this wonderful occasion with our family and friends.
I don't think I don't think I can do it.
Sweetheart, we've got this.
Thank you all for coming tonight.
It means so much to us to be surrounded by our family and friends all of you who have watched Sarah grow into the woman that she is today.
So often when we think about our kids, we go back to the moments when they were little and they needed us to pick them up and kiss away their tears.
I miss those days.
I won't lie.
I miss them.
They were some of the best of my life.
But I'd rather be here right now because of this unbelievable young woman that's standing before you tonight.
Sarah is someone who will always fight for what's right, even when it's hard.
She is a daughter strong enough to pick me up and wipe away my tears and There sure are a lot of those sometimes.
Sweetheart, you are my inspiration.
You're my heart.
You're my best friend.
And there's nothing I would change if I can just keep you by my side.
Te quiero mucho.
I love you, Mom.
He is awake.
Your mom? He's awake.
Just make sure no one sees you go.
I've never seen anything like it.
He's your opposite in so many ways, yet still you.
And his speech? You'll be able to understand him now.
I should've killed you.
You tried more than once.
Why are you here, Kal-El? To save my world And yours.
I just, um, I just wanted to say I'm sorry about what happened with Sarah.
Really sucks.
- Yeah.
- Yeah.
John, what what's going on, man? Can we just not get into this right now? Come on, keeping secrets never works out.
Says the guy literally keeping a massive secret.
Dude, can you just can you just for once, like, just quit acting like you know everything.
Yeah, well, can you quit lying to my face? I'm not lying! - You have powers? - Jordan No wonder you were so much stronger this morning.
Why didn't you just tell me, man? Okay, I just they just started come in like a couple days ago, and I just like, I wanted to get a feel for them.
Come on, come on.
We gotta go tell Mom and Dad.
No, no, wait.
Whoa, whoa, whoa.
Can you just look.
Can I just have a little bit longer? Yeah, they're gonna find out anyway.
I get that, but my powers have barely started coming in, and you know that Dad's gonna pull me off the team as soon as he finds out, right? - Yeah, probably.
- Exactly, okay? So can I just get a couple days just to figure this out before he gets involved? It's Sarah.
I gotta take this.
Okay hey.
Can we talk about this later? - Please? - Yeah, man.
- You're a murderer.
- I'm a soldier.
And there are casualties in war, whether you want to admit it or not.
We're not at war.
Not yet.
But you will be.
At war with who, Kal-El? The woman whose life he just saved.
Ally Allston will destroy everything you love.
Your friends Your family.
You'll lose it all.
Unless you kill her first.
