DC TV Roundup: SUPERMAN & LOIS, PEACEMAKER, LEGENDS OF TOMORROW, BATWOMAN, & NAOMI
Next week, get ready for Doomsday on Superman & Lois as one of the Man of Steel's greatest foes makes his way to Smallville. Plus, check out new promos for Legends of Tomorrow, Batwoman, and Naomi!
After some big teases, Doomsday has finally arrived, and it sounds like next week's installment of Superman & Lois will finally see one of the Man of Steel's (Tyler Hoechlin) greatest foes make himself known to the Kent family and all of Smallville, which should make the next episode absolute must-see television!
Then, on Legends of Tomorrow, Sara (Caity Lotz) ends up at a bar for time-travelers, where she quickly discovers that the odds of winning may not be as great as she envisioned. Plus, on Batwoman, loyalties are tested and motives come into question as Ryan (Javicia Leslie) races against the clock to once again save the city and those closest to her.
Meanwhile, after that bombshell reveal at the end of episode four, the fifth chapter of Peacemaker will see the team continue their mission and presumably get to the bottom of what the butterflies are all about.
