SUPERMAN & LOIS Episode 3's Big Bad Reveal Ends With A Doomsday-Level Twist - SPOILERS

After a number of well-placed teases in the first two episodes, last night's installment of Superman & Lois finally revealed this season's big bad, and he arrived with a twist no one saw coming...

Hello Doomsday Bizarro!

After teasing "the thing in the mines" for several weeks, last night's installment of Superman & Lois finally unearthed this season's big bad, and it's a character no one saw coming! Instead of the expected Doomsday reveal, we were introduced to Bizarro (Tyler Hoechlin).

It's unclear what this means moving forward, but Hoechlin will be pulling triple duty for the foreseeable future, playing all three parts. Speaking with TV Line, Hoechlin expressed his initial reaction to learning about the clever misdirect: 

"I remember the conversation I had with Todd Helbing, our amazing showrunner. I was insanely excited about it when he told me. With TV, there’s always the fear that sometimes you’ll get locked into doing the same thing over and over to the point where you feel like it’s Groundhog’s Day. This was a really cool chance to do something different — an opportunity to play on set and really let go."

While we'll surely learn more about where this "bizarre" version of Clark came from, it seems that, for the time being, both he and the Man of Steel will be just as confused as we are. 

Now, as for whether we could see the actual Doomsday show up in Smallville at some point, Hoechlin didn't want to make any promises, but did seem to indicate that it's not something that can necessarily be ruled out, especially this early in the show's run. 

"When it’s a movie, it’s a lot easier to say yes it was this or no it was that as the actor. On these shows, I never want to say anything definitive because I don’t know. There are certain things they keep from us too. I think it is what it is at the moment, but who knows what it leads to. Only Todd and the writers have that answer."
