Superman and Lois (2021) s02e09 Episode Script

30 Days and 30 Nights

1 Previously on "Superman & Lois" - All I wanna do is spend time with my two girls.
- Dad, that's not Mom.
She's still gone.
Mom! Chrissy hasn't returned any of my calls, Lucy texts cryptic goodbyes, and Anderson's missing along with the pendant.
What if they're trying to get into the inverse world? We're gonna merge with our other selves and become whole.
Help us! No! I knew Lucy would come through.
You're safe now.
She's gonna stay at the DOD for a very long time.
Put something in my tea.
Why? To make sure Ally gets to the other side.
I'm sorry.
I knew Lucy would come through.
We fixed that thing's suit too.
But we need to hurry.
We don't have much time.
This is Lane.
What? Thank you for your assistance.
Lucy said you were the only one who could get across.
You'll find Anderson, right? You'll save him? Soon I'll be able to save everyone.
Ally broke out of the DOD.
She's trying to get through again.
You're too late.
She made it to the other side.
Then I'll bring her back.
You can't, Superman.
Not even you can make it through.
Not in that.
It's been over ten hours since the oil rig off the coast of Texas caught fire, and while the fate of its 200 member crew remains unclear, the world is wondering once again, "Where is Superman?" This is yet another catastrophic event in the past week where the world's hero has failed to appear, leaving many to fear the worst.
Superman's continued absence has forced Metropolis officials to put all emergency response teams on full alert.
We need to be focused on strengthening our family values.
And in Smallville, family should include everyone, not just your top donors.
I'm ready when you are.
Do you think John Henry's gonna have to fill in much longer? I'm sure he'll fill in as long as he needs to.
- Where's your brother? - He's listening again.
Grab your stuff.
Jordan, you don't have to keep doing this.
I'm just trying to find him.
I don't even think your dad could hear through a portal.
Yeah, it's been a month.
Dad's never been gone this long.
I know.
I'm sure he has a reason.
I'm sure he has a really good reason.
Okay? Let's go.
Smallville coming up in 1/4 mile.
Breakfast? - It's harder than it looks.
- You know what? I'm sure there'll be food at the rally.
We can just grab something over there.
No, no.
Lemme just try another batch.
Hey, no.
We're gonna be late.
Lemme just wash up real quick and we'll head over.
It's the big day.
Polls are officially open.
Any of you who would like some exercise, I'd love it if you would hit the pavement and make sure people show up to vote.
Everyone else, if you could please help on the phones.
Other than that, I just wanna say, whatever happens today, thank you.
Oh, we're gonna do it.
Okay, let's get back to work.
We got a mayor to elect.
- Hey.
- Hey.
- Thanks for coming.
- Of course.
- No Clark? - He really wanted to be here, but he's still on assignment in Metropolis.
Seems like a really big story.
Yeah, I think so.
Well, you saw my poor attempt at thanking everyone, which is why I was wondering if you'd take a look at my speeches.
You should be ashamed of yourself.
Uh, sorry? What? For getting the football season canceled.
My son is a senior.
This is the last time he'd ever put on that uniform, and he doesn't get to do it now because of you.
This isn't the time, Barb.
Or the tone.
I'm sorry, Lois.
Barb's not wrong.
A lot of people feel the same way.
I said this isn't the time.
Yeah, you know what, I think I think I'll just go door-to-door.
- Hey, honey - It's better if I'm not here.
I'm sorry about that.
Thank you for stepping up, although I can't say I really blame them.
Here, why don't you show me what you have? Yeah.
Guess we're gonna be making some calls.
Yeah, guess so.
Hey, Jordan, is everything okay? It's just, you know, since I've been talking to Aubrey a little bit more, you kind of seem distant.
We got a 10-41 code 2.
Highway 14, County Q.
- Hello? - Now! We need water! I I'm so sorry.
- I gotta go.
- You just got here.
Yeah, but I should really check on Jon.
I'll be right back.
- Leaving already? - Yeah.
Yeah, sorry.
How can we help? Calls? Alvarez, do you copy? It's getting hectic in here.
Come on, Tamera.
Let's go! We gotta move.
Watch your step.
Watch your step.
Alvarez, do you copy? Cap, this is getting out of control.
That's a helluva whirl, Chief.
Captain, we need to back up! Go get the other hose, Tamera.
Attack the delta side.
I got this.
Yes, sir.
Come on! What the hell? So I can count on your vote then? Awesome.
Thank you.
You think your mom will take down Dean? I hope so.
She deserves a win.
I can't believe today's the day.
How's it feel to be, like, the new mayor? It's crazy.
I think I need some air.
Wait, Nat.
Nat? No! You need to get out of here.
Go! Now! Hey, Natalie.
Are you feeling any better? Did you not see my dad blatantly flirting with your married mom? Well, uh, "married" is kind of a strong word for my parents right now, if that helps.
It doesn't.
I'm sorry.
That was rude.
I just today's the day my mom died.
Nat, I'm so sorry.
I had no idea.
Yeah, how could you? My dad's out here living his best life like she never even existed.
Maybe he's just dealing with it differently? You know I spent an hour this morning trying to recreate her homemade waffle recipe, and he didn't even notice? I just wanted to, I don't know, do something to remember her.
Maybe we could do something.
Like what? Um, every year on Día de los Muertos, we make an altar for my grandpa, an ofrenda.
It's like our way of celebrating his life.
Maybe we could do that for your mom, if you want? That actually sounds really nice.
I'll get the candles, the flowers oh, and then we just need a picture of your mom.
Oh, I don't have one.
It doesn't have to be the perfect picture.
Just give me your phone and we can look - I'm sorry.
I didn't mean to - No, I'm sorry.
I just I need to find my dad.
Nat, I I'm sorry.
Okay, and now to the concession speech, which we will not be using.
Oh, don't jinx it.
Have you seen my dad? He was standing right there a minute ago.
- Is everything okay? - Can you please just take me home? Yeah, of course.
- I'm gonna drop her off.
- Yeah.
Hello? Yes, this is Lana Cushing.
Dad? Aw, hell, I told 'em not to call.
Are you okay? - What happened? - I'm fine.
It's just some bumps and bruises, okay? They just brought me here for a quick once-over.
I made this for you in the car.
Thank you, sweetie.
Yeah, I'm pretty sure that's just what I needed.
Aw, I'm sorry.
I know you got a lot going on with the election.
- No, it's fine.
- Dad, you almost died in a fire? Yeah.
A strange one at that.
- - I am so sorry.
Emily is freaking out.
I really do have to go.
You should go.
I'm gonna be outta here pretty soon anyways.
Why don't you come with us? Uh um, I'm just gonna stop by the apartment first, you know, and, uh, get myself cleaned up, okay? Hey, do you need, uh, help with anything? Time is better spent with your mom, mija.
I'll see you later tonight, okay? Yo, what happened to you? There was this crazy fire, and I had to save Mr.
Cushing, and I got cornered, so - I flew.
- What? You flew? No way.
Yeah, not very far or anything.
Yeah, but who cares? That still counts.
Yeah, and then John Henry showed up and his suit had this fire extinguisher, so Wait, he didn't see you, did he? No, no, he just saw some guy in a hoodie.
Yeah, but doesn't he have, like, facial ID and biometrics and Jordan, look, I'm saying if John Henry saw you full vigilante mode, I mean, do you really want Mom to find out from someone else? - Like, you have to tell her.
- What if I tell her and I blow my cover for no reason? Take it from someone who's been on her bad side for, like, a month, it's not worth the risk.
Hey, man, I'm really sorry about what happened at the auditorium.
It's whatever.
Maybe I deserved it.
- Dad sure thought so.
- No, no.
There's no way he would still be mad.
Jordan, you don't know that.
Okay, Mom said that that was the most angry - she'd ever seen him.
- Come on, man.
I mean, you're working overtime at the store.
You're doing online classes Jordan, none of that matters! None of it, okay? I don't know how to fix things with Dad, and I don't even know if I'll ever get the chance to.
Speaking of, I gotta finish this up before tomorrow.
Congrats on flying.
The primary accelerant sample you provided appears to have been X-Kryptonite.
X-Kryptonite? I'm gonna need you to get this to General Lane ASAP.
Nat! What - What happened? - I don't know.
She wouldn't talk to me.
But she seemed really upset.
You know, she's been off all morning, ever since breakfast.
She What? The waffles.
Today's the day Nat's mom died.
And I completely forgot.
John, I'm sorry.
You've been covering for Superman.
That's not an excuse.
She was my wife.
Nat's mother.
She She has every reason to hate me right now.
You should probably try to talk to her.
Call me if you need anything.
Oh, wait, Lois.
There is something I have to tell you.
Uh, Mom, I have to tell you something.
It is too late.
I already know.
Wait, you can't get mad.
I didn't even have a chance to explain.
What about before you left the school? You were busy talking to Mrs.
That is such a load of crap, and you know it.
Fine, but I didn't have time to argue with you.
About whether it was okay to run into a burning building? About whether it was all right to save Mr.
Cushing's life.
Did you know there was X-Kryptonite in there? So what? I couldn't just let him die.
If John Henry hadn't shown up, it could have been you who died.
John Henry was late.
He didn't save Sarah's dad.
I did.
You are not a superhero, Jordan.
- You're a kid.
- Well, Dad's gone! And no one knows if he's coming back.
I know how hard this is for you.
It's really hard for me too.
Stop telling me to act normal.
- None of this is normal.
- That's why it's not a very good time for you to start playing hero.
That's exactly why it's the right time.
That's why Granddad's been training me.
He has been what? Because people need my help.
That is not up to you to decide.
Well, I don't need your permission.
Under my roof, yes, you do.
Not when I'm the one with superpowers.
Can we talk? I forgot what today was.
- And I'm sorry.
- How could you? And don't tell me you were too busy.
I guess I just wanted to forget that day.
That's not okay.
You don't get to just Eternally Sunshine Mom's memory.
- Nat - No, seriously.
I'm trying to move on.
So what, you just forget about her? Pretend that she never happened? I will never forget your mother, ever.
But thinking about her constantly, obsessing over her death you didn't see what that did to me.
I became someone I didn't recognize.
You and I are the only people that remember her.
We're the only ones who know that our Lois Lane existed.
You don't get to just run away from her memory.
But I can't let it tear me apart either.
I wanna be a dad.
And I wanna be able to enjoy this life we have together.
This life we have? It's because of her.
And I don't want a dad who would ever forget that.
Uh, what are you doing here? Kinda felt like I needed to check in on you.
- I'm fine, mija.
- You don't really look fine.
You look like somebody who just got out of the hospital.
What you got in there? Anything to eat? A few things.
But the headliner: everything we need to make abuelita's chilaquiles.
Some assembly required.
Yeah, um I don't think that's such a good idea.
Dad, you're bleeding.
Um - Dad.
- No, I it's fine.
It's Uh, where's your bandages? Uh, over there.
If I'd have known you were stopping by, I'd have straightened up.
How? By taking your one chair and sticking it over there? You can't live like this, Dad.
You need stuff.
And this place is depressing.
It's a waste of time and energy fixing this place up.
That because you think you're gonna get back with Mom soon? It's 'cause I think this is just temporary, you know? Thank you, mija.
That feels much better.
Dad, I just wanna make sure you're okay.
Really, I'm great.
Okay? I just need some rest.
That's all.
So how 'bout we do chilaquiles some other time, yeah? Okay.
Figured you'd show up sooner or later.
I'm just glad you could find time in between training my son to be a weapon.
What were you thinking, Dad? He's one of the most powerful beings on Earth.
One that needs guidance.
I wasn't sending him out on missions.
I was just making sure he had control of his abilities.
From what I hear, he saved someone's life.
You should be proud.
You have no idea how hard it is, Dad, with Clark gone.
I have two teenage boys who think they are grown men.
I might have a better idea than you think.
I don't know how much longer I can keep doing this.
Pumpkin, you're not gonna be a single parent forever.
Clark's coming back.
Like he always does.
This what I think it is? This must've been a distribution hub for X-K.
You got a lead on any X-K dealers? Look familiar? Mom, I can't tell you who it was.
The time for protecting your friend is over.
This is a big operation.
It is dangerous, and people are gonna get hurt.
Kyle Cushing almost died.
Look, son, I can promise immunity for your friend.
We need to put an end to this.
And they don't know the kind of drug they're dealing with.
Sweetie, it's never too late to do the right thing.
And and you promise you'll protect them? With the entire might of the DOD.
Okay, I'll make a call.
What kind of irregularities? Dean's accusing us of trying to bring people in from York County.
That snake.
He's gonna try and stop the rideshares - Mom.
- And we cannot let him do that.
Mom, can I talk to you for a second? Sweetheart, I'm a little busy.
I know, but it's about Dad.
- I'll be right there.
- Okay.
Um I was wondering if Dad could maybe stay with us tonight.
- He's in pretty bad shape.
- Sweetheart, it's the wrong message to send to your dad right now.
Have you seen where he's living? - It's really bad.
- Honestly, Sarah, it's really none of my business.
- It's your dad's life.
- Does that mean that you don't care about him anymore? No, it means he made his choices, and now he needs to live with them.
Mom, if he could It's not your responsibility.
Your dad's just gonna have to take care of himself.
- Okay? - Yeah.
Now that both coconspirators are here, we are going to have a talk about your little training sessions.
Mom, you're wrong about this.
You might wanna consider a softer touch there, pal.
It's true.
You said it yourself.
I need to be ready.
He's not your mother, Jordan.
I am.
Just to be clear, you promise to keep them anonymous, right? That's right.
They won't get in trouble? You have my word.
I'll bring her in.
Her? Hello, Candice.
I am so sorry that Jon got in trouble because of me.
Yeah, I don't really want an apology.
I just need you to tell us everything you know about the X-K.
I wanna help and I wanna make things right, but I honestly I don't know much.
How long have you been selling? About four months.
Where do you get the inhalers? From a guy at our trailer park.
We're gonna need names, Candice.
Okay, um, his name's Micky.
Micky Jeroux? I've only lived here for a year, and even I know he's bad news.
What were you doing hanging out with someone like that? I didn't have a choice.
I'm sure you had a choice.
You just made a bad one.
Yeah, I did.
But my dad's got a heart condition, and we're totally broke.
We've moved seven times in the past nine years.
And not into perfect farmhouses like this.
He can't keep doing that.
And I can't either.
Where does Micky get his supply? If I tell you and the people he works for find out They won't.
I've done this before.
- I always protect my sources.
- It's true.
Plus our granddad here pretty much runs the DOD.
He'll make sure nothing bad happens.
As long as you cooperate.
Okay, um, all I know is that he used to make pickups at this place on Old McClellan Road.
I think we can work with that.
That'll be all for now.
I'm gonna walk her home, okay? I really am sorry, Ms.
For everything.
We'll let you know if we have any other questions.
I'll call the DOD, get 'em to pull satellites.
I mean, how long is that gonna take? To analyze? A couple hours.
We don't need to wait that long.
I have super-hearing.
If we just drive - down Old McClellan Road - Not gonna happen.
You have played hero enough for one day.
It's not a bad idea.
This is the kind of thing I'd use Superman for.
Jordan's not Superman, Dad.
I know that, but he's a hell of a lot better than a satellite.
And we need to stop this before anyone else gets hurt.
Mom, please.
Look, I'm not trying to be Dad, but Jon's all wrapped up in this, and I just wanna catch these guys.
Fine, but you are to stay in the car until we get back to this house.
Understood? Good, you voted already.
I can cross that off my list.
What is all this? It's your stuff that's been sitting in the garage for the past couple months.
Photos, CDs, clothes, your old guitar.
You didn't have to bring this over.
Yes, I did.
It's your stuff.
It belongs at your place.
I already told you, the moment I start - hanging stuff on these walls - Dad.
Please stop lying to yourself.
This apartment, it might not be temporary.
I'm sorry.
It's just it's really hard to see you like this.
Well, then I guess it's a good thing I got my, uh, top designer here to help me decorate.
Dad, your should Where's that knucklehead of yours? How come you didn't get him to help you with all this? He's busy.
I guess.
It's Smallville.
Busy doing what? Just say it, Dad.
Look, all I'm saying is, there was a time where I didn't put your mama first like I should've.
Yeah, obviously.
I'm not just talking about that.
She deserved better.
I know that.
But so do you.
No, listen to me.
Somebody needs to remind that boy that he is lucky to be dating my daughter.
Now let's go let's go hang this singing trout, hm? It's so ugly.
You should've thrown it away a long time ago.
This is artwork.
Look at the baby.
Hi, gorgeous girl.
I just wanna hold my baby.
She's perfect, isn't she? Yeah, just like her mother.
Are you sure you don't wanna rest? No, I do not wanna rest.
I just wanna hold our baby.
Natalie, I hope that you love us as much as we love you.
'Cause you're gonna be stuck with us for a very long time.
I love you.
This has to be it.
Looks like no one's here.
I hear someone talking.
- About X-K? - I can't make it out.
There's a hissing, like a pressure valve or something.
Any chance your x-ray vision's come in? - Nope.
- We don't need it.
Somebody's just moved in.
Those are new crates over there.
So, uh, that's it? - Call the DOD? - Gotta make sure the goose is in the gander before we send in a team.
- What does that even mean? - It means stay in the car.
- But Mom, there are guys - It doesn't matter.
That was the deal.
You heard your mother.
I am choosing to trust you on this.
Don't make me regret it.
Let's get a visual and get out.
- No funny business.
- I'm just gonna take a closer look, okay? That's what I'm talking about.
Let's go.
Dad, there's a whole operation in here.
We don't need that.
Let's go.
All right, we gotta call it in.
That's not happening.
Lois Lane and her dad, the General.
Our night just got interesting, didn't it? Come on.
Oh, I'm so nervous, I could pass out.
I mean, you've done everything that you can now, Mom.
It's out of your hands.
What if I win? And what if I don't win? Either way, you're a total rockstar.
I mean, all of these people came out here to support you.
Just got a call.
All the results are in.
The election board's about to announce a winner.
- I guess this is it.
- Yeah.
You got this.
What are you doing? - What's it look like? - Dad, stop.
You're gonna give yourself rope burn.
These are fireman chair knots.
The harder you struggle, the tighter it gets.
If it was a hobble knot, maybe you could wiggle out, but not this.
How many times you been tied up? Better you don't know.
We need to activate Jordan.
What? No, we are not activating my son.
Whoever that guy's talking to, I'm pretty sure he's not the type to let Lois Lane and the ex-head of the DOD just leave.
- Dad.
- I've seen what Jordan can do.
And it's more than enough to get us out of here.
Jordan, honey, if you can hear me, we need your help, right now.
Sweetie, you need to be very, very careful.
- Dad.
- Son, - you're gonna have to hurry.
- Dad.
We're at the southernmost part of the warehouse.
There are at least two armed men inside and one of them is heading our way.
- Dad.
- Jordan, we need your help.
No, no, no, no! I got you.
Jordan, look out! Soph, you can't cheat.
Quiet, everybody.
Quiet, please.
Hello? Uh-huh.
Okay, thank you.
Uh, how close was it? 57, 43.
Okay, thank you.
You won.
Oh, I'm so proud of you.
And while I am so thrilled to be your new mayor, I want you to know that this victory belongs to all of you.
Every single person in this room.
So thank you.
Truly, thank you.
To Smallville! Looks like Lana won.
I'm gonna go find Sarah.
My team just cleared the warehouse and are sweeping the area for any other hot spots.
Hopefully this can be the end of X-K in Smallville.
Except this story is bigger than Smallville, Dad.
There was real money funding that operation.
That's what worries me.
But right now, I think the new mayor wants to say hello.
Hey, Sarah.
I am so sorry I'm late.
Late? You missed the whole thing.
Where were you? You know, family stuff.
It's complicated.
I'm sure I can keep up if you just wanna talk to me about it.
I can't.
Okay? I'm sorry.
Are you ever gonna put me first? What do you mean? I mean, you keep disappearing, and all I wanna know is why, but you're shutting me out, and I know I haven't been the perfect girlfriend No, no, no, no, no, that's not what this is about at all.
Then what is it? Because this was an important day for me, and I wanted to share it with you.
I know.
I have things I wanna tell you, but I can't.
Then I can't come second to whatever it is that's keeping you.
You should take this.
Are you are you breaking up with me? Yeah, I think I am.
Sarah Let's just talk about it tomorrow.
Okay? Dad, what are you doing? Making breakfast for dinner.
With Mom's recipe? I've been so busy filling in for Superman that I haven't had much time to think about her.
I thought that was a good thing, but you were right.
Just because it hurts is no excuse to forget your mom.
But maybe today, instead of mourning her death, we can celebrate her life.
By making waffles? And reliving memories.
She's perfect, isn't she? Oh, my God.
- I was so tiny.
- Yeah.
What? I just want you to know that I will never forget your mother because I see her every day when I look at you.
I love you.
I love you, too.
Come here.
Uh, shouldn't you be celebrating with your mom? Uh, I figured you could use some company, and, you know, honestly, I could too.
I broke up with Jordan.
Mijita, I'm so sorry.
Come here.
Honestly, I don't really wanna think about it or talk about it or really acknowledge that it happened.
Hey, hey, hey.
You did what you had to do for a reason.
Am I right? Yeah.
I say tonight, you and me, we load up on chilaquiles.
Tomorrow, we'll we'll figure out what comes next for the both of us.
I mean, yeah, my mom can be a little, uh - Terrifying? - Yeah.
Yeah, she is, but, you know, it's fine.
Actually, I feel a lot better now.
I was feeling really guilty letting you take the fall for me.
I'm still glad I did, you know, and, I mean, hopefully, now we can just forget that it ever happened and I don't know, maybe focus on us.
Yeah, I'd like that.
Jon, what is it? - Are you okay? - Sorry.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
It's just, like, a weird headache, I think from staring at a laptop all week.
Online school is no joke, you know.
You should go home.
I'm two blocks away.
- You sure? - Yes.
Go home.
See you tomorrow.
Find a new spot.
Brooding on the porch is my thing.
Sarah gave this back to me.
I'm sorry, sweetie.
I don't know what to do.
Sometimes, with heartbreak, you just have to feel it.
On the bright side, you did kind of save your mom's life tonight.
- Yeah, I guess.
- Hold on.
I think that warrants way more enthusiasm.
It's kind of hard for me to watch you guys grow up so fast.
Sometimes it feels like you guys were running around in diapers just yesterday.
But I do want you to know how proud I am of the hero you are becoming.
So's your dad.
Hey, look.
Jon's home.
That's not our Jonathan.
Where's Clark? He was too late.
Greg, move your head.
