Superman & Lois ended a major chapter on Tuesday, then immediately moved on to an even scarier chapter.
Let’s start with the episode’s great loss: Bizarro is no more. Although Superman and Tal-Rho worked together as good brothers to keep the fat invader safe from Lieutenant Anderson, in the end they couldn’t stop the juice-filled army man from suffocating. Bizarro in the fortress.
“Yeah, I feel so bad!” manager Elizabeth Henstridge told TVLine who directed Bizarro’s Swan. “But what a great opportunity, what a great thing to do. I think Amy Jo Johnson did a great job [directing] 206 where we get to know him a little more. I was so sad, but this is also sci-fi world, so you never know! ”
For Ian Bohencharacter acting dirty, he recalls not believing host Todd Helbing when he was first told that Bizarro would die at Anderson’s hands.
“When Todd told me I was going to be the one to do it, I said, ‘How am I going to do it? ‘ said Bohen. “But as all has been revealed, we ended up with this incredible fight scene choreographed by Rob Hayter. I think we did it wonderfully. It’s been a very long, very satisfying day for Tyler [Hoechlin] And I to work together. “
In a strangely heartbreaking moment, Henstridge says she was inspired by Bizarro’s death in the comics.
She explained: “He had blood coming out of his eyes and nose, and you can see that if you look closely. “The Bizarro that I read in the comics is like a child. He had this innocence that made him very endearing, so locating him dead really dictated how we built the entire fight before that. We’re sure it ended with Anderson rolling Bizarro off, so he’ll go into this fetal position. I already have that picture [in my head] right after I read the script. Max [Cunningham] and Michael [Narducci] are masters at their craft of writing; They gave us this giant battle sequence, and then we got this stillness. That makes that time land. “
Of course, this on-screen death is a long time to come, according to Bohen. In fact, it’s been fated to happen since 2011. We’ll let him explain: At the end of season 1 of Teenage Wolf, Tyler slashed my throat and killed me, he said. “So now we’re back even, and we’ll see what happens next.”
Shortly after Bizarro’s brutal demise, Anderson snatches the guy’s pendant and gives it to the person most likely to use it for evil: Ally Allston. In it, Bohen said that he and actress Rya Kihlstedt – with whom he appeared in several episodes of Yellowstone – Having instant chemical reactions, from which they formed a “sustainable relationship and unknown” for their characters. “There must be a powerful struggle for people responsible and who thinks them Candlestick responsible,” he said.
Elsewhere in the hour: Lana focuses on the polite school, confronting the Mayor Dean in public to remind people that he is a useless person; Sarah felt uncomfortable to ask Jordan about her family film, so she turned to her friend with her camp (gasping!) To ask for advice; And Jonathan was arrested with a pile of Candice’s XK on school, at risk of being expelled and – worse – is the rage of Lois Lane.
