Superman And Lois Premise
The series began with Superman returning to Smallville after he lost his job and mother on the same day. It also introduces Lane, Superman’s friend, who he reunites with after his return to Smallville, while his kids befriend Lane’s daughter—the series’ first season introduced the audience to two new villains, The Stranger, and Morgan Edge, whom Superman had to look out for.
The Stranger is a villain who is always in a suit that has power in it, while Morgan is a businessman with the intention of buying Smallville. Jonathan discovers he isn’t liked by his teammates on the football tea tm after he joins the new school in Smallville. Lois gets into an altercation with Morgan, as Superman cannot directly deal with him. Clark begins to help his son to know his powers and the history of Kryptonian in the family. At the same time, Lois works with Chrissy to dig out information on Morgan.
Clark gets the difficult choice to either be a father or a superhero from Sam, and Lois keeps looking for information on Morgan. Luthor comes to Smallville and pays a visit to Louis, and Derek comes back with a lot more than he left with. There is tension between Clark and his son Jordan as he questions his decision to allow Jordan to play football.
Clark helps Jordan in navigating through the powers that he has discovered while helping his wife Lois at the same time to find information on Morgan. The trio consisting of Lois, Clark, and Chrissy teams up to find out the significance Smallville holds to Morgan. A fight ensues between Sarah and her mother, Lana, as she accuses her mother of always covering for her dad.
The first season ended with Superman burying the pieces of his father’s crystal on a farm and Irons reuniting with Natalie, his daughter. The second season of Superman and Lois began following the events three months after the first season ended. Lois is unhappy after catching Jordan almost having sex with a girl, while Superman begins to have visions of young people having powers working towards rescuing people from the mines.

Clark admits to Louis about having visions while the family is having breakfast, and Superman begins to see the visions once again. Sarah and Nat begin to get close, and she cancels plans with Jordan.
The second season dealt with Superman’s visions and ended with Superman returning and saving everyone in Smallville again.
